A night in Berry

(link to the page entry)





I have been working on this game for several years and now it's out. It's been fully translated and proofread by Alix. Thank You Alix!

It takes place in the XVIth century.
The father of Lilith has Fallen into a coma. When a healer happens to pass in her village, she decides to grab the opportunity to save him.

The game is around medium length and features :
- 2 playable characters.
- 800*600 resolution.
- a simple interface (à  la Broken Sword)
- 1/2 hour of original music by Eleusis88.

This is a beautiful game! I've really enjoyed it thus far, but I'm completely stuck. I searched the hint section and I'm passed the parts they have mentioned. Is there a walkthrough available. I'd really like to finish this wonderful game!

Alix2468 has kindly accepted to proofread the game.

However, I can't edit my post in the recruitment board because the topic has been locked. Could someone please tell me why :confused:

Looks very good!  Unfortunately my French is really not up to much at all. :-[

Oops, I made a mistake in the first post : the game is translated in english, even if it hasn't been proofread yet.

Thanks for the article, CaptainD. With all the good games coming out lately, you must have a lot of work on your hands.

My thoughts about the game:

- The most outstanding point of this game is the gorgeous graphics and detailed animations. I am usually looking more at plot and puzzle quality when I rate a game but the art in this game is just so beautiful and the animations so smooth that this is the first point I want to make!
- Along with the beautiful graphics, the environment is superbly enhanced by the music and perfect sound effects.
- The puzzles are good. I enjoyed them and found some of them to be fresh and creative. The difficulty level was very appropriate. I had to ask for a hint and needed one other hint from an existing post on the forum but otherwise was able to solve them and I found them enjoyable. There is a good mix between inventory and dialogue puzzles.
- The plot was adequate. A good plot is what makes a game a compelling experience and distinguishes it from a disjoint set of puzzles in different rooms.
Spoiler: ShowHide
In this case, the main story, despite the captivating details, is still a fairly simple story with little more to the main plot.


One small point:
- Some of the French has not been translated. You might want to play the English version again and just touch up those 4 or 5 lines

Overall, I would strongly recommend this delightful game. It was absolutely a pleasure to play. I am looking forward to playing more from this author.

Bravo, tres bien!

Is there an installer-free version?

Thank you arj0n. I have used Inno Setup to create the installer. I thought people would find it simple.

@arj0n
Thanks! Looking forward to playing it this evening! (Btw, good to see you around here again :) )

@Creamy
For AGS games I prefer zip packages. I just put them all in the same folder to keep them organized.
Anyway, the setup caused Win10 to show several warning boxes and confirmation dialogs. While I do trust you, other people might be scared by this. It might be a good idea to offer an installer-free download on the AGS game page as the mirror download link and say so in the description.
