This game has a lot of potential. I think the use of colors and graphic design was particularly pleasant. With some nice transitions, some epic storytelling, and an engaging story that makes you want to solve the mystery, this game could be a lot of fun!

The fact that you wrote a working point-and-click engine so quickly is pretty impressive.

The graphics are simple, but work well enough, and the gameplay is nice. I'd really like to see this expanded into a bigger game.

Well done!

It was cool and old school.
I liked it.

This game is styled as a side-view retro quest. The player controls a human-looking character in a room with a few objects, and the possible actions, like "Use" or "Look at", are listed in text at the bottom. The player clicks on an action and then on an object, and the character performs the action.

The engine worked fine for me. A nice detail: as the mouse goes over things, the game displays a textual hint, like "Use flask with poster", of what happens if a click is made. The graphics are also nice.

As for the rules, there are crafting (flasks), snow (obstacle), and Unicode (in the final text). No pathfinding or poetry visible.

The quest is understandably short, shorter than the excuse about it in the final text. Come on, that's OK for a weekend-made game.

I thoroughly enjoyed the aesthetic of this game, especially the crafting puzzle and the final book monologue. You don't tend to see adventure games in these hacks, and I was glad there was one entry, even if somewhat incomplete.

At this point, the entry is a nice little engine for a point and click adventure.

You have to craft a potion by mixing two ingredients, and use it to escape the snow cave. There is a poster on the wall with a humorous poem that hints how to solve the puzzle. Your character walks where you click implementing the pathfinding rule, I think that this is especially nicely done. The only rule that seens to be unimplemented is the unicode rule.

Nicely done. All in all the game is too short unfortunately to receive the highest marks.
