About this gameIf I remember correctly, because I wrote the story a while back, you play as a pair of mages sent to find this powerful enchantment called The Digital Spell. As the title suggests, this has something to do with magic and technology, but the take is not like we've seen in games like "The Longest Journey", and such. Here magic and technology coexists, harmoniously (I believe... as I told you, I don't remember). It is a kind of universe like the ones found in the pages of Heavy Metal magazines, but without the adult situations. I've been meaning to write a game like that, but despite my intentions, they always end up being PG, or PG-13 at the most. Anyway, I'm rambling. The thing is that the game has an atmosphere that reminisces those sci-fi European comics, but it has a slight irreverent tongue I cheek humor. A mixture I'm sure you are not used to, but one I hope you'll enjoy. The game itself is not like most adventure games. The idea came after re-playing Lucasart's "Loom". In particular, getting to figure out how to play it is the first puzzle. But don't worry, it's not that hard (nor is the game nearly as hard as Exile).
10 people commented on this game (newest first):
The background art is very good, but the author doesn't say whether he drew them or not. Given that the chracter sprites are obviously ripped, I had to give the visual an average score. You should credit the artists/copyright owners at least.
My sole complaint was with atmosphere -- it seemed like it should have been a dark, gritty, futristic kind of affair, yet there was obviously humour in the game that seemed a little out of place (in my opnion, anyway... though some of it was pretty funny). Not a problem so much as it was unexpected, though.
Quite good overall for a short game, even if we're left hanging a bit.
I'll try the game later.
I remember playing LOOM a long time ago.
Do you have a copy of loom? Could you please email me a copy of LOOM? I'd really love to play it once more. can't find it anymore on the store shelves...
my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much!
