The Horror Game With a Working Title

This was more of an experiment than anything. A long time ago I started work on a massive point & click adventure, but the enormity of the task made me give up.  I started thinking how I could distill it down into a more basic form and this was the result.

Hey,
cool idea.
I havent played much yet because i find the font difficult to read. Especially when there is a lot text it kind of becomes a wall.
Maybe you want to try another one or adjust this one. Spacing and so on.
Cheers!

Thanks Bombini. I've fixed the text and uploaded the new version. I'm going to fix a few typos now.

Front paged on Newgrounds, and it was, for a little while, quite highly scored on Kongregate (3.1), but dropped to 2.5.

I'm surprised at this was really just a simple experiment, although in reality it wasn't that simple. Much of the code for this turned out to be much more complex than anything I've done so far. Mainly because it uses pretty much all tiles and only a couple of actors.

The main criticism has been the lack of sound. I didn't add sound as this was based on Bitsy, which doesn't support sound, but I'm planning a longer sequel and if the people want sound, then they'll get sound.

I think the "secret" is that all your games have a unique charm which stands out (my opinion).
The story hook is good and i as a player want to knwo whats going on.

Congrats!

This has now become a full game, if still rather short. If you fancy trying it out can play the preview here: https://www.newgrounds.com/projects/games/1261184/preview

Several bugs fixed, and it's now on Kongregate. I don't normally do this, but if anyone cares to play and rate it on Kong I'd appreciate it.  https://www.kongregate.com/games/BowWow200/the-strange-disappearance-of-eldon-crowe
