Download it here: The Netherworld

You are Godfrey, a confused spirit who has just arrived at the banks of the River Styx.
There is an underworld after all, but something doesn't feel right (Other than being dead).

- Talk your way out of sticky situations
- Utterly destroy all foes who stand in your way
- End the torment of souls everywhere

Play your way through The Netherworld  ;)

Screenies:







This game was made for the June MAGS by myself and Zor. I did graphics, he did scripting.

Okay this is not the MAGS version of the game, as there was a HUGE bug in that from which I expect to be mauled and severely injured for. An important item didn't drop.
This has been fixed in this version along with some other minor bugs and details.
My apologies to everyone we frustrated with that bug.

We recommend that you read the readme, which is nothing fancy, it just explains the verbcoin used as well as the method required to use something on yourself. (Fiddly things like that)



We hope everyone enjoys the game. Please don't hesitate to tell us about any bugs or problems you find.

Thanks guys!
Lovely looking game!
Some of the puzzles are rather obscure, but the script is good and overall I enjoyed it a lot.
The MAGS competition is tough this month, but this game holds its own pretty well.
Still waiting for Purity of the Surf II

How do I talk to the ferryman?

The main character states he's on an island, then lets me walk around... and all I can do is walk (left-click) and pop up inventory (right-click).  Sound isn't working either.  What's supposed to happen, or what am I missing?

Z: Just hold down your mouse on a hotspot and a "verb-plank" will pop up. Never played Monkey Island 3?

Fliegemich: Thanks, but I don't think I plan on expanding it any time soon. ;) hehe.

Steve: Thanks for all your positive comments!!

Remember, if you really enjoyed it don't forget to vote for it on the MAGS website!!  ;D

Pretty hardcore, some of the puzzles had me stumped for a while though.

The thread is over a year old.

PM or email the creator of the game. Thank you.
