I added a guide to getting enough ingredients for a passing grade.

The love letter! 👏👏👏
The parser was a bit fiddly (e.g. in / out were missing), X ME didn't work and the inventory limit was annoying. But apart from those niggles I enjoyed it. I found the two dream sequences in particular to be quite well done.
Thanks for the bug report. 👍
Sorry, I'm afraid my game wasn't designed to be played without a keyboard. I've just pushed an update that should pop up a virtual keyboard when you touch the screen. If possible, I still recommend playing with a hardware keyboard or on a computer.
Thanks for playing and for the feedback! :)

Hi! You game doesn't appear in the list of ECTOComp games when I'm logged in and when I click to go to the game's page it looks like it doesn't exist. I think you might not have set your game to be public. When you edit your game on the itch.io dashboard the option is at the bottom of the page, just above the save button.
Thanks for playing my game, glad you enjoyed it!
I used this to translate messages into what is supposed to be close to real ancient Egyptian. It's mostly for my own amusement though. The game assumes the player character can't understand them, so knowing ancient Egyptian isn't key to solving any of the puzzles. There is a way to translate the inscriptions in game, but it is pretty well hidden. :)
A tad dark for my taste.
You should check the "enable scrollbars" option, otherwise the select nickname page can block progression.
I think maybe it might have been more powerful if it had ended a tad sooner, just when we realize Johan is a ghost. As it was the last part was a bit like beating a dead horse, though I suppose that would be par for the course for the protagonist. ;)
Oh no, Allison Chase was a no show. :'(
I enjoyed the Inquisitor's story, I genuinely felt a bit sad about UVF PNCR.
A Nice Drive reminded my a little of the Far Side cartoons. I also liked that is was written in the past tense.
My own story I didn't really care for, but I guess I only have myself to blame.
The Banshee's Curse was cute, I wasn't expecting it to end so suddenly though.
Thanks for bringing us along, again.
Oh how Absalome Pilcrow has aged, it feels like mere months ago he was just a young lad.
There were a few small parser issues (quite forgivable in a 4h game): ENTER BUILDING didn't work, nor did OUT or X WALL when inside.
But those niggles aside, it was great to see more of the Panzitoum world.
I look forward to seeing more of Absalome's travels.
I really enjoyed this, it took me back to my school days (translating Latin that is, not ORVAT FRG HCBA OL TUBFGF 😅).
A few small parser issues:
* the MATCH verb could maybe also work with TO as well as WITH
* after "LOOK UP <adjective>", "MATCH IT WITH <noun>" didn't work
It felt a little odd that your character has to look up pretty much every noun, but automatically knew all the verbs.
Overall though it was quite fun and V QVQA'G FRR GUR GJVFG RAQVAT PBZVAT.
Thanks! Measuring is rather poorly implemented (deadlines eh?), if you have seen a recipe you will automatically measure ingredients if you have measuring tools. There's a pot in the cupboard.
[spoiler]For a perfect score you need to have read the recipe, have the measuring spoons, use fresh pumpkin and fresh eggs (two) and bake at the correct temperatures for the correct durations.[/spoiler]
Here's a link to the walkthrough that might work: https://v6p9d9t4.ssl.hwcdn.net/html/1792970/walkthrough
That was fun! 👍
A few nits: there was a typo in the word barely when the fisherman as at the shine, a missing "You" in one of the choices at the same time. When entering text I tried the correct answer but without the article and it turned me down so I wasted a lot a of time before trying again with the "the".
That aside, it seemed pretty polished :)
Thanks for the feedback! 👍
I'll be sure to improve egg handling for the next version. Is updating the game before the judging period ends allowed though?
In the mean time, you should be able to "ADD egg TO" or "PUT eggs IN". Also, just between us, you might be able to pull a fast one on the ghost and bake him a cake with no eggs. How culinarily refined can those undead really be? (you won't get a perfect score without eggs)
