As some of you may have noticed, I didn't upload a game for Stencyl Jam 2015 this year. I had an idea for a game, but I was already working on another game that I wanted to finish first. At the time I finished it, making a game for the Jam would've been far too rushed, so I decided to save my idea for the next year :)
That said, I just uploaded the other game I was speaking of, after a long wait. It is a text-based adventure game, even if it may be a bit different than most other games of the same genre. I actually wasn't even planning on making this game to start with, but one night when I was trying to fall asleep, an interesting idea just suddenly popped into my head. That was the seed which inspired me to create this game!
I don't want to spoil too much, but the game is based on word puzzles/games of different kinds. It also features a riddle created by my sister. I asked her to create a slightly morbid riddle, and about 5 minutes later, she had one for me. Scarily impressive...
The game might be difficult, and then again, it might not be. It will be much easier for those who speak fluent English; that much is for certain. The first real level especially may be confusing, as the concept requires some getting used to. But I'll say it here like I said in the game description. Look at the title of the letter for hints, and seek after meaning behind some words and sentences in the text. That is as much as I am willing to give away :D
The music for the game was, naturally, made by myself. All of the "programming" was also made by me, in Stencyl, as well as the story and design.
If there's anything you want to ask, please do so in the comments. Just remember, I won't spoil too much! ;)
That's pretty much it. Enjoy playing with letters, everyone!
