Thanx for the comments guys.
Chicky: I completely agree with most of what you say. I actually intended for the main character to be more "realistic" looking, but as I just decided to dust-off this old project about a week ago, I didn't have the time to make a suitable looking character sprite for the game, so I just re-used my "cartoony" looking character sprites from my old Escape From Evergreen Forest game. Well, at least it beats havings the old default Roger sprites running around there
Sorry Roger, we all luvs ya! heheh
Also, when I first started on this project a while back, I was mainly seeing what kind of effects I could do with the lightning / thunder / rain, so at that point it wasn't really a story or plot specifically in mind. But when the "Release Something" event came up again, and for a Halloween release date, I thought that maybe I could quickly throw enough of something together with the start of this old project, to make something that would fit in with a "Halloween" type of theme too.
So, if I do decide to go ahead and re-make this project into a more full-sized adventure, I would take the time to make up good looking character sprites, think out plot/story to follow, and more interesting puzzles.
Regarding the backgrounds: I "borrowed" (screen-captured) them from the "Alone in the Dark - 4" game, but I had to do a lot of editing on the pictures to clean them up and make them useable for my little game.
FlashLight Plugin by: a-v-o. I used this for the latern effect, as well as playing around with it to get a cool looking lightning effect.
Rain Plugin by: Scorpiorus. I used this for the wonderful raining effect.
Gord: Thanx for the inspiration man. I may then decide to rework this into a better project. Regarding your question, no, the game does not end at that point you mentioned. When you finish the game, you'll know it. There's more areas to explore, but you need to
