I think you entered a prototype version of this in the puzzle comp?

Impressive amount of scripting here, so that's worth a pat on the back all on its own, but I kept wishing for even just a few shreds of narrative to lend interest and hold it all together. In general, more choices in the dungeon sections might've gone a long way--choices related to exploring or non combat encounters, or just fluff like memories, setting details, etc. No matter how fancy the scripting gets, at the end of the day there's only so much entertainment value that can be stuffed into repeatedly clicking 'Attack'.

As far as the combat itself goes, again there was obviously a large and complicated amount of scripting involved. It's great to see people putting this level of effort into a more game-like game. Though I kept finding it annoying to be attacked after enemies were killed. There was no way at all around this?

ex: You damage the Wolf for 9 points! The Wolf now has 0 Life Points remaining!

The Wolf attacks you! You take 11 points of damage! You have 29 life remaining!


Also, just a minor nitpick, but it's an 'Aggressive' attack. Two Gs. Not a huge deal, except that that's a message we see over and over again.

Fun and quick. I played it twice with a 26 the 1st time and a 19 the second. It helps to get maze. I wish the quests would vary.

This was really fun. I really like game storygames, and this one was done well.

you can break the game if you run into the trader and go back every time you lose money until you can buy everything

Really loved it, I played it several times and somehow died every time. But i have made it through by the skin of my teeth. Well made game, the time that went into this must have been maddening. Well done good sir.
