A little bored this weekend? Got a Halloween itch and nothing to scratch it? Want something to try while you're waiting for EctoComp? Look no further!

http://www.sidneymerk.com/hallowmoor/hallowmoor.html

Hallowmoor is playable in most modern browsers. It's a text-based point-and-click adventure created with Twine, and it's my first new release in over seven years. It's a game that grew far too big for EctoComp, and it features a few tricks not commonly found in Twine-based games.

So come one, come all. Make your way down into the catacombs of Castle Hallowmoor and see if you've got the guts to make it out alive!

It seems I'm stuck.
Spoiler: show
I've just drunk the black potion and need to get away. There's a boat in a cavern, but it's held up by chains. There's two buttons I apparently need to press, but I can't push them both at once. What do I need to do here?

First off, did you thoroughly explore the witch's bedroom? There's something you can find there that will help with this puzzle, but it "gets away"...

Oh!
Spoiler: show
I did find the cat, if that's what you're talking about. I can't seem to satisfactorily interact with it as either the witch or the skeleton, though. Is there something I'm not thinking of here?

You need something from the auditorium room... Which means getting in unseen...

Aha!
Spoiler: show
I didn't realize you could pick up all the other potions as well. Are the blue and red ones completely useless?

Now I just need to find the last lousy point. I have a hunch about a certain room that I couldn't find a use for, but I have no idea what, if anything, I need to do there.

The LLP was designed to be something most people wouldn't figure out the first time. It isn't clued very well , on purpose. It also requires multiple steps. But I think you're on the right track.

I've only just barely started it, but already it seems very intriguing. I shall have a good time with it.

I do have a suggestion, though. :) You see, I can download the file for the game... and if you could also supply the image files, I could, with zero fuss, play the game offline with images, including the compass rose. ::) The downloaded file seems to look for the images in the same folder, so no hassle for you.

Pretty please. ;)

I was planning to zip it up for downloading in a couple weeks, after any stray bugs get fixed. It seems pretty solid though, so I might do that soon. Might upload it to the IFArchive as well.

Cookies don't work with local files in Chrome or Opera, so you wouldn't be able to save/load in either of those. Should be okay in IE or FireFox though. Not sure about Safari.

The images are here:

I have tested and can save/load in Mercury, the browser I use for playing Twine games in my iPod. ;) And thanks!
