To Hell And Back - Kayamon - 48 Hour Competition Entry
Wow. Well that was a whole load of fun. It's finally finished.
"To Hell And Back" is a classic LucasArts-style point and click graphic adventure. Featuring the hero Ragnar, who finds himself unexpectedly somewhere he'd quite like to escape from.
Can you solve the fiendish adventure and ESCAPE BACK TO THE REAL WORLD?
I wrote the whole thing from scratch just for this, including a SCUMM-style adventure engine. I'm actually fairly happy with that; you could almost write a production-quality game in it, if you didn't mind it not supporting save games.
I decided to take advantage of the server downtime to polish it up a little, tweaking some of the dialogue. (hopefully that doesn't count against the 48hr limit) :-/
I'd originally planned for it to be about 2-3 times bigger than it is, but this was my first time writing adventures, and it turns out it's way more time consuming than you'd think.
