Quest for the DUTIMS! [Visual Interactive Adventure]

So this is a visual interactive pan-forum adventure, which means that the entire forums (plus a few other forums, and tumblr, and whoever decides to email me commands) controls our Brave Adventurer. It's been going on for a while (~55 pages as of this OP, not counting the text-based portion), so I'd recommend bingeing one of the options above if you want to get up to speed. That's it for this little metaintro - information about the game itself is below.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DISCLAIMER: This forum game is an excuse for me learning how to use my graphical tablet. Vast amounts of glorious, unscripted nonsense are to be expected. The plot is a joke.[/size

That said, this is gonna be kinda fun, mainly because I won't be worrying about it making any sense. As I said above, this is an excuse to help me find a reliable, quick-to-draw style that I can work with on this thing. Therefore expect frequent art shifts.

However, I've coaxed a decent general goal out of this - your mission is to find the DUTIMS. The entire world has been generated, and there's complex if rather arbitrary skill system that I've cooked up. More will come.

There's... yeah, there's no pebbles 'round here. Flowers look nice, though.

Oh, yeah. Dispose of it for once and for all.

> This is not the way to go right now. Look around for other unsolved puzzles to set your mind to.

Image

You return to the big room. There's bound to be crap to do in there.

Image

Which unsolved puzzles would you like to set your mind to?

>Examine end of spike


Image


The surface appears frosty and very cold. Ice has built up from the center, it seems, and there is a sheen of frost creeping up the spike. Sharp, short icicles have formed, clogging up the shaft that the Golden Spear was fitted into. Your sharp SEER skill notices a tiny droplet of water freezing slowly, apparently the last bit to get out from wherever all this ice came from.

Resist? This is your best idea ever.

Actually, on second thought...

>Stab the door in order to control your urge to get rid of the horrible green thing.


Image


That you'n do. The splintering of wood as your steel blade punctures through the boards is one of the most satisfying things you've witnessed while you've been stuck in this pit. You yank it out, full of delicious glee.

Oh. Oh crap.



Image


Gorram thing got itself stuck'n there.

Wow, finally, readers on the Cantr forum! :D :D :D

Currently, I'm working on a long update for the command from the Game Maker Community:
>Use your knife as a screwdriver to remove the door from its hinges, then use the door as a bridge to cross the green slime stuff.

(http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=607092&page=10#entry4587444)

If you want to offer commands, you'll be just as equally considered as the people over there on that forum.

I'm reading it since the beggining, and I like it too ^_^ but I don't really understand what's it about, so I never said anything. But it's reaaally nice.
