The Tower of Rowena

A humorous adventure. You play as yourself, an adventurer... well, let's be honest, you're a thief. You've heard a witch named Rowena has gathered treasures which are scattered throughout the tower she calls home.

You are free to backtrack as much as you like within the tower and the immediate area. Indeed, backtracking will be necessary to find all the treasures. You are free to return to the beginning and leave whenever you wish. The more treasures you find, the more you'll impress us, so of course you'll want to find all 17.

Certain risky decisions will result in your demise. You'll always be given a warning that you are doing something risky, so that you may change your mind. However, certain risky decisions have beneficial results. It's up to you whether to proceed or not.

Good luck with the treasure hunting!

You could have the player choose from several different planets which one to explore.  A different adventure depending on which they choose!

And Happy Feast of Saturnalia.  Let's not forget that one!

My wishes as well to everyone for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I hope it is a wonderful - and safe - holiday season for everyone.

I enjoyed collecting treasures in games enough that I eventually decided to create my own version.  To anyone who enjoys any particular type of puzzle game, I'd recommend spending some time asking yourself what the best games get right, and what features you wish they'd add (or would take out).  Then create a game with exactly that, making sure you infuse it with your own personality, so it stands out.

Happy belated birthday to you!

Thanks for the great comment!  I rather guessed treasure on the rooftop would give people the most trouble.  And I'm glad to hear the humor worked; I enjoyed breaking the fourth wall and having the narrator speak directly to the player.

Thank you!  I have a couple ideas, striking out in a different direction, so we'll see if they come to anything.

Wow, thank you!

I'm not sure that it's really that puzzling of a game, but if the admins feel it better belongs in the Mystery/Puzzle category, I would be happy to have them move it.  I have no idea how to move the game myself, now that it's published.


My First Storygame on 12/15/2017 7:00:31 AM

I just published my first storygame on this site, The Tower of Rowena.  The object is quite simple.  You play as yourself, as you try to find all 17 treasures hidden within the witch's tower... or as many as you can, at least.

I was learning how to use this site as I was creating the storygame.  As a result, it gets a bit choppy in places, I freely admit.  In addition, the story could be fleshed out a bit more.  However, I felt it best to see if people were receptive to my strange brand of humor first.

I'm willing to hear about the mistakes I made.  I'm also aware there is much more I have to learn about this site.  Any helpful comments you make will be appreciated.
