The Small World of Professor Strangeby Will Edwards - Jam Entry
*** PRO TIP: typing HELP will list all the things you can do ***
A bit of promotion on Hacker News suckered 9000 people into wasting collectively 130 hours on this game in the first 24 hours :)
This is the kind of game we wanted to make when we were young.. a classic bit of nostalgic interactive fiction, perhaps with a twist.
Its a puzzle game - you really can retrieve the treasure! - with a small but beautiful world to explore. If you get stuck, its quite ok to ask for HELP.
Who doesn't want to play a game with pirates, Sioux in a canoe, a mad baron in a steam-powered zeppelin, a peculiar hedge-hog and ... sucked in yet?
Of course we could add so much more detail if only we'd had more time! We managed to plumb-together and make-work 51 locations, 33 objects and 7 NPCs so it should be good for hours of game-play.
The illustrated version is absolutely beautiful, but the PROGRAMMING UI is safe for playing at work! ;)
We hope you have as much fun playing it and solving it as we had making it :)
