Finally, this is the game you saw a preview of at the One Room, One Week competition last month, and I finally got around to finishing it. it was a tough game to get scripted and such, but anyway, enjoy!

Cute game. It took me a little while to figure out what I was doing but I eventually got the hang of it. So if you take more than 10 minutes to finish does that end the game? I got it in just under 10 minutes.

Awesome, Yeknomten.
I too will download it when I get back from school, that ORWO 'sneak-peek' made me very much interested in this game.
But now, back to revising for the art history exam. -_- Go away, Pollock, I don't even like you. :(

As a sidenote: yay, the FOREGOs made Joyce register. :D

Whoa, this is an awesome game so far; I can see why it took you long to script it. I only played it for a couple of minutes, but I'll finish the rest of it at home. :D

And by the way, looking at one of the student's books... I have to read "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Marquez for literary class as well. o_O At gah, is it ever confusing...

I fell kind of stupid right now, but I'm just not getting this.  Could someone explain what to do?

Brilliant. Just brilliant. This is the most original game I've played for ages.

Don't worry, it took me a while to work out what to do. Basically, you have to enlist the help of the kids on the desks surrounding you by touching them on the shoulder. You can only get the attention of the kids on the desks directly next to you. The exclamation mark appears above a kid when you've got their attention and you then control that kid and can attempt to get the attention of the kids next to them. Be sure to check in all the different kids bags to see what they are carrying. Some kids are harder to get the attention of than others and you'll need to use items. You can pass items from desk to desk by picking them up and clicking them on the kid you want to pass it to. Again, you can only pass an item to the kids directly next to you.

I hope this helps. It's quite difficult to explain the game clearly but its worth perservering with the game because its a little gem.

There is also a very good description of how to play the game. On bottom right corner there is a little television screen, click on that and then on help.

Thank you!  Once I figured out how it worked, it was a cool little game!

Thanks Joyce,
once again, I've overlooked that damn ruler :)

As for the game, I really enjoyed it. The concept's very innovative. I want to see more!

Thanks, khrismuc... this is why I unleashed the game onto the AGSers. I thought I fixed that problem. :)
