Really neat game! Love the writing. I included it in my PowerPoint Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Thanks for playing!

Again, I'm sorry that Google Slides didn't work with the game.

THEIF pretty much boths looks like and plays like something written on a parchment scroll, huh, like a choose-XXXX-XXX-adventure for medieval folks. Meh, with every next PowerPoint game I discover more and more of curiosities, like, apparently I am a golem for real or I just found most powerful captcha ever existed XD And yes, everything seems work pretty nice running on PowerPoint Viewer 2010!

Passed Golem Test: hints file, sped up version, branched story(got all them endings)

Failed Golem Test: Golem Test( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°),  sloppy visuals

Question: after all is it "THIEF" or "THEIF"? Or both??

Developer(+1)

Haha! Goodness, I spelled the game's title wrong! Thanks for the feedback. ("THIEF" is the correct spelling. Man, English is weird.)

The golem test might be breaking due to PowerPoint Viewer 2010, but I can't be sure. I'll need to track down a download for it. As far as I know, it shouldn't be an issue, unless PPTV2010 prevents clicking on hyperlinks while they are animated.

Again, thanks for playing!

I thought this was a really charming game, and the jump to ludicrous speed helped with the replay value (I got endings 1 and 5). My only gripe was that the font used for the ending screens was a bit difficult to read.

For the future, I wonder if it's possible to save it as a standalone .ppsx file to prevent people from just scrubbing through the slides to see all the endings.

Ooh, I haven't heard of .ppsx. What does it change? Also, sorry about the font. I didn't realize that it would pose an accessibility issue. Hopefully you were able to decipher it or change the font on your end. Once the jam's over, I'll be sure to upload a more accessible version. Just wondering though, is the issue the color, the font size, the font itself, or a mixture of those factors?

Thank you for your feedback!

If you go Save As -> PowerPoint Show, your slideshow will start right away when you open it, no idling in the editor. It's great for looking more professional at school / work, too.

For the font, the colours were fine, my problem was that it was a bit too loopy and too small on the screen

Got the first ending, quite funny!

Like the derpy but cute art, and the animations are really well done. Agree with Sally that the dialogue was too slow- mostly just how long it takes for dialogue to start. But that wasn't a huge issue for me.

Nicely done!

Thanks for the feedback! I've removed the delays and made an additional version that also quadruples the speed of the text animations.

The art style is simplistic and the story is very good. Although the one problem I had was the dialogue was too slow.

I've removed the delays and made an additional version (THIEF at Ludicrous Speed) that quadruples the speed of the text animations.
