Coracao Branco

by Ganondox - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My name is Coracao Branco. I'm all alone, come and comfort me, for my heart is lonely.

***

Instructions: Click on the heart to start. Each room gives you a puzzle where you must guess the proper word (for the first room its any word except for mitso), including spelling, capitalization and such. To guess the word enter it into the purple text, then click the heart to guess. If you guessed correctly the heart will disappear, and you can continue. To do this walk out the right side of the screen, use the arrow keys to move. After a certain point there will be a drastic change in gameplay, and then you need to figure out what to do from there.

***

I actually had to make this in under 6 hours as I had no internet connection over the weekend and I just got it up 6 hours ago and it was a real pain. I also couldn't work out the music correctly AS THE AUDIO ON MY COMPUTER BROKE WHILE I WAS WORKING ON THE GAME ARGG!!

***

One last thing, please do not look at the source unless you must, it really ruins the experience of this game.

***

For a puzzle that involves the word same, add "different book" to the description, it will make it easier. The answer for the puzzle is "gronk", but I meant to put something else, see if you can guess what it is.

I got through a few screens, but got stuck on "a stranger in strange land". I'm not adverse to this sort of puzzle, but the combination of hard to understand interface and seeming lack of puzzle direction isn't working out for me.

The interface isn't the best as I was extremely rushed, I only had an eighth of the time most people had. The puzzle order is mainly random, as I didn't have much time to think up puzzles and I need to fill it up with sufficient content and I only had a few hours, overall I meant for them to get harder and/or more personal as they go along, I wasn't able to implement nearly everything I wanted to. Anyway, for the "a stranger in a strange land" puzzle, you need to look at an EXTREMELY famous book. I'm willing to give hints in the comments if anyone needs any.

I got through the "stranger in a strange land" puzzle with a web search, but I got stuck on the puzzle that says "Only one can open me alone." I think you should post a walkthrough if you want anyone at all to finish the game....

It is weird and I could't solve some of the puzzles.

Woot! I didn't get last place, haha. Was my audio really my best aspect?

Is there anyway to post spoiler tags here?

And I take weird as a compliment, that last thing I want is for this to be ordinary.

For the only can open me alone, lets just say there is a reason that I'm the only person who has one this.
