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 ^ ^

Finally the Lucid Dreamer has graced us with his Absolutely wonderful work. Once again this game blew my mind. All the little tidbits hidden here and there coming together into one. Marvellous.
The last puzzle was very difficult, but through the process of elimination, it was obviously the red herrings. Just.. Coded.

Majority of the puzzles were straightforward.. Except for the secret ending. I wracked my brain for what seemed like hours and finally, through trial and error, i figured it out. I won't say anymore, as i might give away the answer, but let me tell you how i came to figure it out. Everything in the game seemed like a clue. I assumed it would be like your previous one, but i was wrong. As usual.
Then i saw it. And i came to realize: Why would a mastermind name their creation something like THAT? After going through the process of elimination, i finally figured it out. As plain as broad daylight. Is that how the saying goes? what goes around come around. The answer was right there. screaming out to me. very "Sweet" Indeed.

I won't write too much, just know that i am a very big fan of yours. And if you plan on continuing the series (most likely) then i look forward to it, You Cunning Mastermind.

Thank you for the nice review, HugoTheFighter101!
I'm glad to see that you didn't find the sequel disappointing, but on the contrary seem to have enjoyed it quite some ^ ^
It's probably a good thing that the final stage is fairly difficult, as it probably would be a bit boring otherwise :)

Great job figuring out the secret ending on your own! It's not something that's easy to do :3
Thanks for not spoiling anything more about it, but it is indeed very 'sweet', isn't it ;)?

I do plan on continuing the series with one more final game. However, I'm afarid it'll take quite a while until I've gathered the energy to create it :)

Thanks once again for pkaying, and for reviewing!


Still the best...even better than the first one.
For those who have a hard time with the puzzles:
Read the Medals' descriptions, there are hints there.


LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you for playing and for reviewing!
I'm glad that you found the sequel to be good :3


Hope to see another one, I'm curious to where the story will go :D

P.S Rotate had me seriously pulling my hair out.

Thank you for the review!
Rotate seems to have had that effect on a few people xD


Played these a couple nights back. Really enjoyed both games. Fun puzzles and a good vibe. Great work! Inspiring!


LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you, Eiomaru!
For playing both games, and for coming back to leave a review :)
I'm glad you liked them! :D


Omg, my head hurts now. Had to open a couple of windows to let the smoke out. This was a well thought out concoction of testing peoples knowledge and/or resourcefulness. If you don't have working knowledge of the puzzles' mechanics, then you better make Google your best friend. I had never heard of the "Rotate" thing before. Good to know for any future games. I am impressed with the variety that you have here. No 1 puzzle is truly alike.
Great job on the music, too. Music may be your passion, but you have a knack for this as well. I applaud you, and everybody that aided you on this endeavor, for a job well done.
I can't seem to get the secret ending. Maybe, I'm burnt out a lil bit, and need to recharge my batteries. Lol
I look forward to the next one.

Thank you for playing the second game as well!

Yeah, I know it can be a bit of a tough nut to crack. But I suppose that's the point of the entire game, hehhe :p

Google is definitely recommended for beating the game, since the game increases in difficulty to an unnecessary degree without it. A fairly impossible one, even, if one doesn't happen to have the knowledge required from the get go.
While I kind of repeated 1 thing from the previous game, that repetition had its purpose too. Other than that, I did my best to give you new and interesting challenges to face ^ ^

I like creating things in general, whether it be music, games, art or writing (along with other things). It's pleasing to hear that you think I have a knack for game design as well! I'm a better designer than a creator, I think, as I can only make fairly simple games on my own at this point, but that's enough to satisfy me :p

The secret ending is a bit of a difficult one. The only hint you need is really the title, hehe :D
But if you're desperate for more, I suppose you could shoot me a PM if you find yourself stuck :3
