Automation v1.1 - OROW Winner
« on: 03 Mar 2006, 05:51 »

Coming to the end of your grant you finally finish work on your experiment. When moving it to a containment unit everything goes wrong... Can you retrieve your precious experiment and save years of research and millions of dollars worth of funding?


Finally, I believe I have squashed every known bug and added a song generously donated by Mr. Adam "Darkstalkey" Hay

When asking for hints, please use the hints and tips thread that I have set up here:


Enjoy! and if you find any bugs, please post them here and please use spoiler tags!

http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/games.php?action=download&game=694   5 megs with music

http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/games.php?action=download&game=694&mirror=1  1 meg without music

If anyone likes doing sound effects and would like to make some for the last part of the game, contact me please!

Excellent game, well done! Great animations, and that last part really had me stumped for a bit.

Nice cliffhanger ;)

nice game..
you get the error.. if you miss out the puzzle before.. probably because the animation (robot) isn't there

Hmm I still can't reproduce it.

Can someone email or PM me a step by step set of directions to get it to break?

Thanks.

Heh.  ;D Funny ending, though a bit abrupt. It could've use a end page or something instead of just closing.

Yes, the bug might have been fixed.

I cannot use magnet machine as I did with the old version though!

That is intended. We're missing a puzzle just before we're supposed to use that console and that's why the game would crash. I'm stumped as to what I missed myself. :P
