Funny game! I included it in my GMTK Game Jam 2019 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

This made me laugh a lot. Loved the blend of old english and modern stuff.

Love the writing, game was really funny! My highscore is 78 people killed, which is a large number so I'm assuming I did very well

Submitted

After killing about 15 people I gave up. Not out of boredom, but out of mercy. It was hinted that the leader had three eyes, but I killed all the people with three eyes, and I didn't know where to go from there.

Haha ! You're breathtaking !
Those quotes are gold. I guess I would have puts all the existing meme quotes in this game :D

The theme is respected, the game is funny and it's original !
What could I ask more ?

As a non-english speaker i was a bit lost with that old english used. But found "the savior" in the first try without killing anyone. So I guess it's fine ;)

Good game !

Many thanks for the wonderful comment !


I myself am not a native English speaker, I had to use a "Shakespearian speech generator" to translate my texts to old English. One thing I made sure though, is that all crucial hint words (clothe names, colours...) were not transformed into an old English, that maybe is why most people are still able to grasp the hints and find the only one after a few tries !

Good game all around, with all the quotes being very fun to discover!
The graphics are bad, but the aesthetic is cartoony and funny looking, making for a fun game visually (and it's the aesthetic that counts)!
After a really murdery first try, the second time was far more successful and I had fun overall!

Good game!

Great feedback, thanks !

Merlin just constantly looks so done with all of this.
"In what world am I"
I love it.

Developer

I'm happy you like it ^-^

The dialogues are really hilarious lol, and the excessive use of old english made it even better, neat little puzzle game

Developer

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you appreciated my game !

Thou art breathtaking!

I hath made poor Merlin a mass murderer! Many hath died in service to finding dear leader!

Well I've killed hundreds of people... 

"What's that? The leader has ears?" says Merlin. Suddenly a dozen ear'd folk are marked for death.

Never did quite get the knack of it, but a fun game, nonetheless :)

Thanks !

I found it somewhat hard to make a selection based on the hints, but that might have just been my sleepy brain. It was well-written and well made, even if the hints were a little vague for me. I enjoyed it all the same and it could probably make a pretty good random generation time waster, with a little more work!

Developer

No it's not you, some people have a hard time finding the only one with the hints. The game being very short, I made the hints very vague on purpose. But if you had fun, that's the principal.

Submitted

Sweet & short little game!

Liked it.

Developer

Thanks !

Submitted

Cool. I wish you started off with half the people as sortoff a warmup. And the discriptions of the people didnt fit them alot of the time

Developer

yes, a difficulty curve and multiple levels could have been a nice idea.

Submitted

Love the comments :P funny little game.

Developer

Indeed, thanks for playing !

Submitted

I really like the visuals of the little characters :)

Developer

Thanks, I think that's half the fun ^^

Submitted

I has't hath found the one that shalt unifyeth our lands.

Developer

Then our lands shall beest did save

It's probably not going to win, but that was pretty hilarious.

Developer

Thank you, as long as the players have fun it's a win ;)
