GO NORTH
« on: 11 Nov 2014, 02:18 »
You know, sometimes, hope is needed in humanity to brace the terrible and the enchanted. To engulf our hearts with embers of the night, as we flow like lava under the moonlit skydome. Are we not men? In our minds, we are. Are we not soldiers? In our minds we are. And bewildered you stand if only to enjoy each other's mindsets. But without further ado, the perception of the single, greatest, mind-changing game is here.


Poetic, frivolous, forever fallen into the hands of few

The question is: Where Do you Go?

I got lost inside the building with the tall pillars and it took me a while to solve that trunk puzzle but in the end I kind of knew the compass was the key. Nice touch having to reverse engineer a compass! I learned something playing this game.
Good job guys!

PS: I got the guy wearing shorts ending, I'd love to know what other players had!

I was very disappointed with the limited parser.  I attempted to eat my own foot but the game didn't even acknowledge me. (roll)  It also wouldn't let me GO TO THE SHOPS, which I felt was unfairly restrictive.

Nice twist at the end, good ambient SFX, and fun voice acting!

Yeah but the female voices are several levels better than the male ones, I guess it was a budget issue rather than a intentional "avant-garde" artistic choice  although the forum feminists here will be delighted.

I hope issues like this will be fixed in GO NORTH 2 (I also run in this glitch).

I was so excited to see another game by Dualnames (it's like watching a new film by Quentin Tarantino to me) - and then I read it was made in an hour... :(

I haven't played it yet. I will soon. It might be the best hour game ever made. But my point is: I hope you're out there, working on a game that takes a thousand hours to make, and me many others are eagerly awaiting it. No matter how good this is, it will probably be over in 2 minutes, and then I'll feel really, really angry.

Awwwww Grim, that's .. I'm speechless. I love Tarantino myself, so that's a huge compliment to me. Don't be angry at me!!

I finally downloaded and played the game, yet to download the sequel...

And one thing I must say is that: The voice acting is really, really GOOD...

That's Qptain Nemo if I read the credits right?

I need that exact kind of voice for my current project!
