The Tiny World

by pbdiode - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This game was made as a purely text based adventure.

It should operate on any browser that supports the content editable attribute, and that jquery supports.

No libraries were used beyond jquery 1.7, everything was made from scratch.

Sorry for poor grammar, spelling, or any lack of polish -- the time constraints get to us all :)

When I type 'help', it says "Command not understood". :(

@MadGnomeGamer: hmm -- what browser did you use? Can you try typing in just a question mark? how about just 'h' (no quotation marks)?

Firstly, I enjoyed playing this through to the end. The puzzles were definitely on the easy side but I thought probably suited the story which would be best enjoyed by a younger audience. The magus character was also quite humourous.

A few things: I got a bit confused with directions around the chasm/cliff area; also, it took me a while to realise that you have to look at things to interact with them; it would have been nice to be able to use less specific words when combining objects (e.g. "pen" instead of "quill pen"); and finally, I think you meant "dais", rather than "dias".

Cool, I like text adventures! It's well written. :)

It seems to be a bit buggy in general for me (I had to "say" multiple times before it worked). I also think I crashed it by typing "t" with no arguments when I was supposed to draw.

Seems like it could be interesting but the interface frustrated me a bit much (requiring to be too specific).

The very first command works, then whatever I type, even "help" fails with "command not understood."

Firefox 11, Linux Mint.

Interesting little game. I would have used bootstrap to make it 'look pretty', but it's cool that you did a text-based one regardless.

I didn't make it very far... just picked up the pen and paper, tried combining and couldn't. I also talked to the old man, but couldn't reply with gender.
It would be nice to know what are the current actionable things to do.
