EDIT: Thank you for the frontpage feature!

This is the sequel to the game "Playing With Letters".

Instructions are stated further down in the description.

The 'solution' to the first 'puzzle' is as follows:

"I understand"

More about that is in this news post, along with a hint about the secret ending:

http://lucidshadowdreamer.newgrounds.com/news/post/968499

(Also check it out if you're having trouble with the riddle).

This is a text-based puzzle game.
It is highly recommended that you play the original before you play this one, even though it's not absolutely necessary:

This game probably won't be easy to beat, but hopefully it'll be just as entertaining as its predecessor.

INSTRUCTIONS:

- press 'z' to progress in the game.

- press 'enter' to either give a solution, or to draw the next line of text if the screen is not yet filled.

- press 'backspace' to immediately draw out all the text on the screen in order to speed up the game, especially if you've taken a break and quickly want to get back to where you left off. Naturally, 'backspace' also deletes any text you've written.

You can usually find hints in the title of each level, or occasionally, even by hovering over the medals.

Please don't write any walkthroughs in the reviews.
This game is as much about the story, as it is about the gameplay.

As a bonus, if you want to watch me play the main theme, I recorded the process and uploaded a video of it:

I don't want to drag this description out any longer, so please...
Enjoy ^ ^

Hello Shadow,

It's nice to see that your still making puzzles, yet this isn't why I'm truly here for. I would like to play another game with you this time I want to see if you can find a little message hidden within this message hehehe good luck.

Fears
I was always afraid of others, even as a child I wouldn't play with my siblings.Yet I met someone at midnight that changed my whole life. His name was James Embers. He first came badly injured and was terrified saying that someone was chasing him.My parents let him inside saying that he was dying. Me being around ten at the time, had no clue on what to do about the situation of death. Yet he was able to live, but he wouldn't talk to us about what had happened to him. He did speak but I was the only one he would talk to.I tried to tell my siblings about what he talked about.But he would stop me before I had the chance to tell them about what he said. Eventually he went to go
live somewhere else, saying that my parents couldn't raise another child so he had to go.
Through letters and other ways of communication were the only way we could talk even in
another country.One day he stopped talking to me altogether,I worried day after day leaving my soul to fear for the worst. That's when I learned that my only friend in the world was killed.
What was the message that scarred James to death?
--->

Okay that the end of the message. If you figure it out you can either reply or leave a private message if you want to continue our little game....oh by the way I hope the games continue.
From,
DestinyJewel

Hello, Destiny Jewel :)

Thank you for playing the game!

I spent a little while trying to figure out the puzzle in your story, since I found it interesting. Alas, I didn't reach any conclusions. I dodn't really know whether I should look for something speific within the words (as in the game), or if this is more of a riddle kind of puzzle, where I need to figure out what's off based on something else. It's interesting that the character has a name given to him, even if everything else is vague, so I thought that may be a hint, along with the title, but I didn't find any sensible anagrams or the like for them.

So I'm afraid I'll give up on this one ^ ^
That said, it's nice to know that you're inspired to write, and include puzzles as well! That's a nice hobby :)

Once again, thanks for playing the game, and for leaving a review!


Nice job bro!

Thank you, dude!


Great game as before.
Although I'm sure this problem is with me but even after knowing the answers I still can't find what Rotate and Assimilation was about. Not expecting to be told but I just thought that stating that might be helpful in some way (I don't really know...)

Aside from that great game and I'm gonna say I really love -- --- .-. ... . most.

AMAZING GAME PLEASE DONT STOP MAKING GREAT GAMES LIKE THIS.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks, DragoonDraconian :)
The reason you had trouble with the assimilate one, is because you had trouble with the rotate one. They build upon each other, so to say :)
I can send you a PM about it :p

I'm glad you liked the game overall though! I'll eventually keep on making games, although I'm taking a break (studies, music, more ;D) ^ ^


Man this seems really hard for me! Either that or i am really tired to play this game right now! Other than that i know this will be a freakin' blast to play cause i enjoyed the previous one so much!

Thanks for another awesome "mind game" man! I will definitely make sure to finish this up once my head is clear! Keep up the good work! ^^

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

To be fair, this is a pretty difficult game! Since you've played the previous game in the past, I can tell you that the level you seem to be on based on the medals, is very similar to the first actual level of the first game :)
I hope that helps get you started! Other than that, the puzzles are all different in many ways, from the first game.

Thanks for the high hopes, already before getting really into the game! Have fun ^ ^


In the first game, the puzzles made sense. This one seems to have absolutely no rhyme or reason (other than the anagram, and the straight riddle one which was easy). I had to look up a walkthrough for all of it, and none of the answers made any sense whatsoever. Its nice to continue the story, but how are you supposed to solve these random questions?


LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Well, based on the number of people who beat it on their own before the tutorial came out (and the ones afterwards too), clearly there has to be some kind of rhyme or reason to the game :)
I also never advertised the game as being easy. The actual enjoyment from this game comes from spending time on the puzzles, and feeling good once you solve them.
Thus, I think your review reveals more about yourself than it does about the game. But thank you for sharing your thoughts either way :3
