Bart, I really love that you don't post a game every two days (or so) all the time but instead sometimes two games in a day, then none for three days and again one the next day and so on, so no-one knows if there are going to be none or two or six new games on the site after not visiting it for a week or so. Keep that up! Because I, personally, am of course always a little disappointed whenever I check and don't find a new game but I am always much more happy happy happy when I see that there are surprisingly three more games up after not visiting the site for two days.
(In case you don't get what I mean because of my strange english I can write in german, I am pretty sure you understand my native language.)

Thanks Playerette! Well if there's not any interesting new game for a couple of days I don't post any new game. If there's lots of new interesting games on one day, I'll surely post them all! Cheeeers!

Original, but not my type of game. No idea what to work towards, no idea how much time it requires. Love to finish games, but I want to have an idea of how long it´s going to take me before I try.

What Thijs said.
Can't warm up to this one.

How about "Gray" then? I found it on gamershood and I really like it and maybe you want to check it out if you haven't already... :)

This game is worth playing all the way through (or at least for 2 hours as I just did) because of the dialogue boxes. The game concept is very interesting, the music is incredibly annoying, but the conversation this girl has with the NPCs is the best I've ever seen in any game, free or charged.

how to beat the nightmare?

Anonymous said...

to beat the nightmare, you need to wait that the rocks will fall on the bad guy, and then, you need to take the black gems that came out from the bad guy. when you take the gams, his life will go down so you need to do that several times.

i think that the rocks are falling after the bad guy shoots fire (so you need to go near the bad guy because the rocks are aiming to you.

by the way, winning the nightmare only makes you not forget all the levels.

The control design is absolute garbage. The menus are impossible to navigate and even harder to get out of.

the "damage system" and lack of weaponry is ridiculous.

It looks great, but never have I been so disappointed by the way a game plays in contrast to how it looks. I'm just disgusted beyond all words.

You get to play a demo of the next game if you get 100%. It looks promising.

Completed. the nightmare is useless. you are supposed to end with the computer.

ribbontied said...

I have been at this for the past... I've completely lost track of time.

Can anyone help me? Where are the Sacred Grounds supposed to be? I've gone and gotten every single gem and I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do next... mostly meandering about now...

For anyone playing the game, don't forget to talk to people/robots/ghosts. It will help you a lot!

In order to win the game, the ultimate goal is to reach full levels for all 5 stats (Run, Jump, Heal, Fortitue and Collect) before the day ends. There's no need to reach 100%(more on that later). Once you reach full levels, see the big computer(have to be fast as the day is ending soon). Talk to the computer, and the game ends. The nightmare isn't much of a goal. If you defeat it, you just don't have to restart all your stats again, but it isn't hard to reach full stats despite that. Once you finish the game, there's an option to let you continue and try to reach 100%. If you do that, return to the computer again to play a demo.

Ugh, why on earth does this game make you restart every time you leave the page?

Anonymous said...

easy controls & it actually had a plot. Plus the lead character was a girl (which is a rarity). I loved it!
