I couldn't figure out how to play this.  How do I interact with the game?  I could read the storyline all the way through, but that's all.  Eventually, the game ended and it said I lost.  Can you give me some hints about how to play?

Yeah I was worried that samone will not understand how to play the game. Unfortunately I was not able to make proper tutorial before the deadline. I am not sure how far have you got, but in summary, at the start after intro there is text adventure part, there you either proceed by clicking the Continue button, and sometimes when there are more options how to react you have to choose one. If you make bad choice than you will have to repeat the text adventure part. Once you go through that tutorial should show up, did not it show up to you? Right now I am not sure where you have lost, is it in the text adventure part? If so then you should click on Paltinson Died, or something like that, that shows up, and then you have to play this part again but with different choices.


Interesting concept, I enjoyed the choose your own adventure aspect and the setup was intriguing albeit, I wish I could progress faster. However, everything was slightly fuzzy, possibly due to a resolution issue, but it hurt my eyes to look at too long. You may also wish to change it so it no longer needs directplay, since that is highly deprecated. I also like the graphics, makes me rather nostalgic.


Thanks for feedback! I am happy you liked the setup, that is probably where I put the most effort. Resolution may be problem, I still have a lot to learn in this area. I am just not sure what you mean by the directplay problem, and how can I solve it? I am glad you liked the graphic :-D. Anyway thank you for playing the game.

Directplay is part of DirectX API that was used for game development and is no longer explicitly included. I'm honestly not sure how to fix it or what its replacement is.


Oh I see. I gues it is because I made the game in the old Game Maker version.
