Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Discovery during the dungeon with the gas : - blasted the gas --> "the gas looks a bit scuffed" - blasted it again --> "You blast the gas for 15 damage! / It is defeated. / It is defeated. / Shrapnel strikes you for 2 damage. / Shrapnel strikes the gas for 2 damage." Spoiler: it was not defeated. Ow.

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

I guess my "can't fail self" doesn't want to fail the exam xD I still don't understand how to open the wall with a hidden door. I've tried all the basic spells, but nothing happens. I've also tried examining everything. Then I tried using "push" on the Sparkle to push it through the hidden door wal...

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

FWIW, I failed the first exam too. Ran out of mana testing different spells like "inspect" and ultimately wasn't able to do anything except give up.

Re: Wolf Hall - Development Testing Thread

Darn it, I had errors on two spell actions and I forgot to write them down. One was inspecting the boulder, I think, and gave me <some random alphanumeric string>. The other *I think* was diagnosis (green) and when I cast it in the dungeon with the abysses (abyssi?) it gave me a white error screen w...

Re: New Case Suggestions

An actual thing that happened when my parents were in college: an enterprising student started an anonymous service where, for a price, you could pay to have a professor pied by a streaker. (I get the impression that streakers were the 70s equivalent of planking . . .) Administration took a lot of t...

Re: Thoughts

The art is pretty, but I wasn't thrilled about the pacing (the two times I played it through). Lots of huge chunks of text with no player input, plus several places where the choices didn't actually lead to where they looked like they would (e.g. "Let's go do this!" --> "Thanks for your input, I wil...

"You quietly search Peggy's room. You find Peggy's diary, where she talks about how she's plotting to destroy her classmates by giving them just enough rope to hang themselves... You may now detain Peggy's room . (I'll admit, this one made me giggle a bit :-P "Bad room! Bad room! Go to your . . . uh...

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

Suspicious Similarity - I found "empty coffee cups and crazy scribbling" in the classroom. It sounds to me like the teacher messed up, but I don't see what I could do about it - the only option for the classroom is still "search." The conclusion was a scandal - overworked teacher gave the students t...

Re: Elsa

I do like it, although it does make me feel less "in character" than the more story-based ones do. I do wish some of the conversational choices were more clear - in particular, the difference between the "I'm romantically interested in you" and "I like you as a friend" and "You're just my minion" wh...

Random. Although sometimes she seems way more obvious than others!

Re: Black Closet - Alpha Testing / Discount Copies

Are there any particular hints on the calendar screens that are -so- important that you think they need to be absolutely prioritised and given out for certain at the beginning, instead of randomly? Or hints that should be delivered in character dialog instead? The one about "too close to call" disp...

Re: The Cast of Minions - Character Discussion

Ha! Finally got a kissy scene and got to see Elsa for the first time (until the school spontaneously combusted into a drug ring the next week and I got kicked out). It's all "forbidden romance" that way, I guess?
