GRAND ADVENTURE! (STORY COMPLETE)

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is Grand Adventure! Part of my Adventure! series. In that I worked on a series of odd projects with Adventure! in the title.

You may have played it before. A 95% finished version was released a few years ago. Well, the programmer recently contacted me, and he finished the game. So, the 'true' ending that many have wondered about is now indeed achievable. I'm actually pretty emotional seeing this game finally get finished. It's been almost a decade. Are there things I'd do differently if I was starting again? Sure. But... it's... done. I don't know what else to say.

This game is uh... It's... interesting. Kind of an atari graphics attempt at a weird horror esq adventure game.

Things you should know about in this game:

The load screen minigame. There is a cool load screen mini game. Designed back when a game of this size would have taken time to download. The big play button starts the minigame, the small play button starts the main game.

The jungle boss is still lame. It's way harder than it should be. Stupid thing...

All the music done by the amazing Andrew Haung. Find more of his stuff at andrewismusic.com

All the programming was done by... well a few different people. Something like ten different programmers worked on it on and off back in action script 2. Sheesh! They all dropped out for various reasons. Maybe I'm just no fun to work with? Grent is the one that finished it up finally!

The hand drawn art was done by the irreplaceable Jhomar Soriano. His art can be seen, among other places here: http://jhomarsoriano.blogspot.com/

That's about that. Enjoy this weird adventure game thingy. This is one of the first games I ever made and I'm glad to see it in some kind of finished form.

Wow! Great game, remember when this first came out. Unfortunately, I couldn't fill out all the slots in the the load file, but it was fun to try!

Emptygoddess responds:

Awww, thanks!

is nice. loved it.

Emptygoddess responds:

Love you.

Wow so great! I didnt even know there were alternate endings until after Ibeat it the first time and was reading through the comments. :) Then it took me a while but yay all endings completed and the strange orange square gets the girl in the end. Great job!

Emptygoddess responds:

It's the same square from Adventure! So, you know. It has experience.

Please, oh please make more games!

Emptygoddess responds:

If you want that why did you give it 2.5 stars? Haha! Thanks, though! I'm glad you liked it.

Well then.

This one surprised me. The graphics are simple. The gameplay is simple. The game itself is not. It actually took me by surprise several times, and the horror elements work surprisingly well. The overall theme and structure remind me a good deal of other games like Ouroboros, but with a different take on the premise; the first plot twist didn't surprise me, but after the third cycle I was actually a little scared. With each cycle I discovered something different, and I definitely did a double-take when I put the clues in the letters together and figured out exactly where the final secret was.

Overall it's the little details that make this game. Every bit of scenery adds to the atmosphere and communicates something. The dialogue, while minimal, is atmospheric and effective. The hand-drawn visuals are well-used. Even the preloader ties in naturally with the rest of the game and is worth playing for its own sake.

In all, this is outstanding work, and one of the games I'm going to remember from this site for a long time. Thank you.

Emptygoddess responds:

That was very nice of you to say. Thank you.
