Some things I've figured out

Postby Ryan Hill » January 23rd, 2012, 1:56 am

Ask brad about a lot of things.

Try:

"Ask Brad about..."

"...skull."
"...Kaci."
"...Roy."
"...Kareem."

You must have the ticket to enter the audience seating area.

Be sure to LOOK at everyone and everything.

Try EXAMINING objects and people.

Text Adventure Protip:  you can abbreviate "EXAMINE" to "X".

> X BRAD

> X MYSELF

... and so on.

I haven't added one -- but I could.  Keep letting me know about commands that seem missing/broken, and I can have a go at adding/fixing'em.

Oh. I just assumed that puzzles involved the player's inventory. I grew up on games like Hugo's House of Horrors and Monkey Island.


Code: Select all
USE plunger with keypad

Code: Select all
USE cheese with cage

Say, strange question, but what happens if I get stuck within the game itself? As in I accidentally typed the wrong things, and I kind of get sucked into my LCD monitor and am suddenly trapped in the text adventure itself?

Because I think I might have done that...

Also, what do I do after getting upstairs?

Those are 3 of the 4 things I'm on the look out for. Oh also anything with alcohol in it. But all I can get Carl to acknowledge is coffee.
