Ouch, many thanks for this information! I added a short script there months ago in March but noone seemed to have problems so far - at least noone reported :( After a short look on it I saw the code actually was buggy, but now it should run fine for everyone. Sorry for the incommodities and thanks again.

Except for sound and music, I have completed my game. It makes very little sense, and the puzzles (the very few of them) have proven problematic for my testers. Otherwise, I think it's pretty good. I'll post it sometime tomorrow, whether I add sound and music or not.

Bernie, that looks great!

Okay, I'm not entirely happy with how the game turned out, but I guess it's not really all that bad.

I apologize for all the noise filters. It's ugly, and I'm not sure why I did it. :P

Thanks, Mordalles and Erenan! :3

Here's my game:
Cedric and the Revolution (http://www.origamihero.com/files/advgame.zip)

It's not very polished and lacks some dialogue and sound effects because I ran out of time. Oh well, have fun playing!  :=

Bernie,
 A lovely well crafted game so far, but get a crash when I talk to Louise at castle. No frame 20 in loop 0?

Just wanted to say that I've played them all (Not finished but played) and they're all really great games. Well done to all of you for entering.
 ;D

Oh yeah and Bernie, I'm stuckz0rrzed!
When you have to get Louise's hat:
Spoiler: ShowHide

I've put the net up over the hole and got Viktor to stand in front of the passage, but the hat just floats up when I throw the ball at it and I don't see how I can block the top...
And I can't figure out how to light the coffee machine candle either.

Bartimeaeus:

Hint 1: If you could make the net sticky somehow, you'll get closer to your goal. Hint 2: Something in Victor's house will help.


Wretched: Thanks! I'll try to fix that.

With regards to Hint 2:

I have noticed Viktor's fire but... what to light!  :D


EDIT: *Bart grins naughtily* Hehe sorry for hijacking the thread  ::)

It's not the fire, it's an item you can find in his house. Btw, PM me or post in http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/yabb/index.php?topic=24149.0 if you have more questions. It's probably not so good if we keep doing this in the MAGS thread. ;)


Wretched: I couldn't get the game to crash... however, I had no frame in loop 0 of view 20, maybe that was the problem.

So we had a really long time for counting all your votes now and compared to other competitions a lot of you made a choice... Actually it's a very clear result in the end:

The winning story features an elve. Oh that's not much of a hint as it was this month's topic. Now what else can we say!? The winner is not Apprentice, it is

Cedric and the Revolution by Bernie

Congratulations to Bernie and also many thanks to Arcangel and Erenan for their nice games.
