    Tongue, tip of the - Nizan - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    Made in Game Maker: Text-Adventure... with a twist.

    'Don't you hate it when words just escape you, on the tip of your tongue - so to speak.'

    WASD to move.
    Left clicky-click buttons with the mouse.
    No sound - ran out of time ^^

    Hosted at my website:


    My first Ludum Dare complete! :)

    I can honestly say I've neither played a text adventure with platformer elements, nor a platformer with text adventure elements. Good job :)

    Game was a bit confusing at first, I thought it was bugged before I realized I had to move the blob.

    Interesting concept! I like how it's not only the dialog choices that changes the game, but also that it's the gameplay that changes the dialog.

    It would have been nice to get an introduction to the game mechanics at the start. but overall interesting concept.

    Going to work on it some more outside of the competition, and actually explaining the controls is top priority ^^' Can't believe I forgot to... xD Glad people have enjoyed it though! Thanks for playing :)

    Interesting concept, yet quite confusing from the start. Only after I started to type Father I noticed I can move (I tried cursor keys to no avail, so I was looking for some other way...)

    Excellent concept. The only bad thing I can say about it is that the whole screen would sometimes flicker.

    Yeah the flicker thing I have no idea about at the moment, a few people have mentioned it, but then others not had a problem at all. Looking into it, but thanks for pointing it out :)

    Bravo!! All you need now is some sound and to brush up the graphics. That was great! :)
