Inspired By




DOT ORDER TIE

In aesthetically pleasing monochrome, including such features as:

-One unchanging level
-Mix-and-match control scheme
-Tons of collectables
-Dashing, gentlemanly protagonist
-Relaxing piano music
-Instruction manual (All text!)
-Hardcore absence-of-a-tutorial
-Secrets!

This is a man.

He is quite a gentleman.
But he lacks a tie.

An ordinary tie will not do.

He has heard tales.
Tales of a fabled tie.
A tie broken into many pieces.
Pieces scattered within a maze.
A maze that looks like this:



This is where he has come.
He has come to the maze.
The maze of the Tie.
The Tie you must find.

For this man is You.

Interesante!

I'm guessing they are in Dots, and you get them in an Order, thus finding the Tie?

After some deliberation, I got a minimap together and working, along with all the dots in the maze. I can't show it, of course, because exploring the maze is almost the entire game.

I lack talent for making nice sounds, so I have a friend of mine putting together a tune or two so the experience isn't totally silent like most of my other projects.

Getting close to completion now, finishing touches.

I saw the deadline had been extended by a week about an hour before I finished.  At that point I was too close to make any modifications so I decided to just finish it as planned.
So here it is.

I really like the nice clean design of this game.  I would have appreciated some way to look at patterns that I have collected while in Door Lock mode.  Pen and paper for a game is acceptable only if you have a real deal instruction manual with a "NOTES" portion in the back (with the exception of Myst  Smiley).

Maybe make an 'in-game graph book', that allows you to draw a pattern and save it, and you can only hold one pattern at a time.

How do you do this?  I went into Door Lock mode on the build currently posted and pressed every key on my keyboard and the map didn't expand.  Also, I tried opening the door while in map mode and this also didn't work.

Nevertheless, I just learned F9 screenshots to a file which is pretty much what I want except for the fact I have to open the file outside the exe.
