OK this game is definitely challenging. I think I have to get back to the green x?

Anonymous said...

Done......... but a little tricky.

Alecia said...

I can't even work out the first one! O.o

Colleen said...

Having trouble with the riddle, any ideas? Have other round ones finished, need help?

Al-E-Cat said...

The first 2 are "noose" and "picture"

The 3rd riddle is a newspaper!

How do you start the game?

Colleen said...

Circle around the middle with your cursor clockwise like start picture. Does that make sense?

Yes, thanks!

Round 3 and 4 of riot are impossible to do! GAHHHHH!!!!!

Cliffty said...

@*pulls hair out*: The riot puzzles are actually the easiest of the lot to decipher.... For 3 and 4, you just have to either stop moving or keep on moving (can't remember which is which)

How do you get the music off?

I can't even get past Riot Level 2! Can someone help me?

budingerm said...

omg..how in the heck do you do rotary round one? im stuck. I'm thinking you probably have to get the colors to be all the same color for each shape but how?

Anna said...

Argh. I was playing through the levels, when I started to read the documents... now I'm trying to figure out what they mean!... if anything at all...

how do you do the river ones?

PyroLuna said...

On the river ones you don't have to click on the squares or circles, the patterns of wind things can be anywhere on the screen just make the dust from the circles go to the coordinated square

The documents only mean something, if you want them to mean something.

An excellent game. Loved it. The puzzles were great.

what is the answer to round one riddle

dyork said...

Don't like it. Couple of OK puzzles, some too easy, some too hard, and a bunch of unrelated documents you'd never read and make no sense.

Anonymous said...

the riddles are tough. im not to good with riddles so i had to eventually use a walkthrough for those. the other games were pretty easy after just playing with it for a while eventually it all came together.

SPOILER:

riddle 1- what do (did) people use to kill the bad, but sad (or depressed) people use to kill themselves? it TIGHTENS to fit all

riddle 2- something that *takes* a particular point in time. you *take* this at events, or to capture the mood of something

riddle 3- a stack of something which is sent to everyone. it shows whats NEW (current events), but with today's technology is going obsolete

riddle 4- it should be unique, but chances are, all of YOUR ones are exactly the same. it would be STRONGER if the CHARACTERS were more strange

Document Spoiler:
DON'T READ UNLESS YOU WANT THE DOCUMENTS SPOILED!

Basically, the documents postulate that whenever an entity imagines a world (or universe), then that world is created. Not only that, but once a world comes into existence it has always existed. If that is true, then every story ever told has created another universe in which the story is true. For the story to be true, then everything has to happen a certain way whether the characters realize it or not. In essence the characters do not have free will. Apparently there is an influence to control what happens in the alternate universe. The writer then postulates that there is an influence in our own world and he/she has felt it. Therefore we are in a world that is a work of fiction, hence "this is a work of fiction" is not referring to the documents, but is instead referring to this world '" (i.e. our world). Kind of dumb, I know, but it makes good fiction. ;)

TLDR - We are all characters in a world of fiction.
