Trader of stories: a grain of thruth is a new point and click adventure game by Marek and Marcin Rudowski. (note: this is a html5 game, so you'll need a recent browser) (alternative link)

Interesting thus far.

This is such a great game! Thanks Bart!

redc said...

Very nice.

(on firefox it does a slow wipe opening a new location/screen but after that it's fine, probably something about hmtl5 in firefox)

-k said...

Interesting. I may have to play through again if only to ask a specific question from the end credits. Thanks for sharing this sequel with us, Bart!

It's so hard! I'm stuck on the 3rd question with the captian. I have the words, "Cloud Eater", "telescope", "scientific", "price", "influence", "crew", "Zephyr", "brew", "The Great Oak", "environment" and "Legends". I already used the words "tradition", "bedding", "family", "connection" and "sleep". Are there any other words that I need to get and what are the combanations that I need to use them in?

Anonymous said...

Ok, now I have the word "business". That might help! :)

Pien said...

I thought it had to be the words influence and business on the third question, but that didn't work..

Pien said...

Oh wait, I think I've got it, where did you get the word price? :)

Anonymous said...

@ Pien, I don't remember where I found that one. I'm going to start the game over a little later today and try to make a walkthrough.

Anonymous said...

Still can't get the third question...

Anonymous said...

nvm got it

Pien said...

Ahh, too bad, now I've got to click everything again xd

Pien said...

Never mind, found it on the ship :)

(I have no idea how to announce spoilers, so this was a vague hint ;))

DeanR said...

i only need 1 triangle now for my mind puzzle, i got the pillow and the stethoscope. i completed the full story line. any idea where i can get it?

It's really buggy (on chrome) I'm gonna have to start over :(

redc said...

DeanR I missed the book on the table in the first wiseman cave/house location, maybe that is yours too.

Unfortunately near the end I have gotten a black screen with just the option icon showing and it's stuck (after doing "ask about" to the wiseman).

Pien said...

I have used the words: bedding, tradition, scientific, influence, Cloud Eater, family, sleep, business, connection, environment, price
I still have the words: crew, telescope, truth, Zephyr, brew, hidden, legend, The Great Oak

I am stuck at the captain's question: You believe that the ... about clouds is ... in ...?
- I thought truth, hidden and The Great oak, but that was wrong..

Can someone offer me any insights? :) I still need two thoughts to organise my mind..

redc said...

Pien I think it was legend, just keep trying.

Site looks like it's hit a bandwidth cap, I will have to start over another day.

DeanR said...

Dear Pien,

Probbably it is legend about clouds is hidden in the great oak.

or try the truth about clouds is hidden in legends i thought it was one of those 2

DeanR said...

Dear Redc

i dont think that was it, i cant find any in there or was it a hint that i dont get?^^

DeanR said...

I think i got that whole room covered..

DeanR said...

I've been through the whole game did everthing i could looked everything up with the eye icon. talked and examined everything and everyperson...

Pien said...

Thanks DeanR and redc! :)

@ DeanR, I was in the process of getting the last thought, but then the screen went black and I got this notification: Bandwidth Limit Exceeded
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to the site owner reaching his/her bandwidth limit. Please try again later.

You still want to know? :p

DeanR said...

Well thank you i think i couldve searched for half an hour more or so:P well time to learn for my exams i guess... haha

Pien said...

Goodluck!

And I will give you one little hint for the last thought... you need to look at the third paper hanging in your inventory ;)

Anonymous said...

Dang, the game froze on me. I hope I don't have to start over from the beginning.

I found this at the creator's site.

It seems to be working.

Anonymous said...

Dang. I have to start over again.

maria said...

well, let me start by saying.....that was very disappointing! it was not at all like the first one(which i enjoyed) and frankly very annoying that i had to install Firefox just for that and than be disappointed.it didn't load as well, the style was totally different from the first one, and there was far to much dialogue! I'm sorry Bart, it just won't do. this is my first official thumbs down for a bontegame

Anonymous said...

please tell me where to find the last stone for the ladder

Anonymous said...

I'm so stuck! Is there a walkthrough anywhere or is anyone working on one? :)

Peter said...

maria: this isn't a Bonte game at all. Bart merely posts a link to it. It's nice game, but not as nice as the earlier ones.

PyroLuna said...

I love this game, the last rock for the ladder is by the hut thing the other thing you can go to by the rocks
I am stuck on the separating clouds majong(can't spell) puzzle, i have tried every combination, and the puzzle doesn't change, anyone figure it out?

Anonymous said...

How do I get to the other cave door where the red fabric is? I can't get over there!

Anonymous said...

use the axe on the rope, combine axe and rope, toss it to the other side

Kat said...

Anyone have a solution for the mahjong puzzle?

Anonymous said...

I can't seem to use the axe on the rope. It won't let me combine/use them with each other. I'm still stuck. :(

PyroLuna said...

@ Anonymous 1:43 You need to use the rope that you cut, the one without the knots!
I also need the cloud mahjong solution

Anonymous said...

For those stuck on the mahjong puzzle: work from left to right. (Taken from jayisgames. they've got a walkthrough up!)

PyroLuna said...

Where do you get the word "Hidden"
Thank you Anonymous for the Mahjong help

Anonymous said...

@PyroLuna:
Examine the chest I believe

Kat said...

Thanks for the help with the mahjong, Anonymous! Now can anyone tell me what the stethoscope is for? I also need one final piece to the mind puzzle (one of the center pieces).

Anonymous said...

Urgh! I can't find the last memory piece! I'm missing the one that's on the left hand side of the center circle. Where can I find it?

Anonymous said...

Dang, now I can't get past the questions with the wiseman. Help! I guess I'll just have to finish the game tomorrow. :)

PyroLuna said...

Thanx for the chest advice
The papers with the colors, i have pages 1,2,4,5,6 I am missing 3 but if I put the color filters in that order should it work, what am i missing

Anonymous said...

I seem to be missing one of the papers that give a clue to the color filters. Looks like it's the third page, according to the roman numerals. Any ideas?

M said...

Probably the best point and click I've ever played! Not too easy, not too short. Great illustration, too! Going back to play the prequel.

-k said...

There is no third page. But, given there are only 6 spaces and 6 colored filters, you can infer which color goes in the third slot.

I recall that the words for the third question are truth, hidden and legend.

Don't forget to form the puzzle in her mind (middle button between map and caravan).

If you have finished the storyline, you will no longer have the pillow and stethoscope. Have you found Zephyr?

Pam said...

This game is amazing!! wonderful storyline, various puzzles combined in a point&click game, the atmosphere. Thanks for sharing it!!!

HEEHEE - thruth

Lizzie! said...

I loved this game. Beautiful, good length, and not especially frustrating. Took me too long to figure out that you could click on the map to "quick" travel, but other than that, two thumbs up!

Anonymous said...

Woo! I finished it! I had to use a walkthrough but I finished it. I can't wait for the next one.

Anonymous said...

asks for capitain:
1 family, tradition, bedding
2 connection, sleep
3 price, business
4 evironment, cloud eater
5 scientific, influence
6 truth, hidden, legends

And if someone can help me, I can't find the last cloth.I have found them in the ship, in the rocks, and in the wiseman house, but I miss one...

Thanks ^^

Jessica said...

ok, so i've answered the first question but can't seem to be able to find any other words (i still have "cloud eater", "scientific", "telescope", "influence", "price", "sleep", and "crew"). do you just have to keep randomly clicking things until you find something? if so, i am not very much impressed with this game. if it all just comes down to searching for words in new conversations with the same 7-or-so people, i am not going to have the patience to finish this. *sigh*

Anonymous said...

finished asking the Cap't all of her questions and have one more inside puzzle piece to find. still can't find a way to break the Wiseman from his trance. any suggestions??

Peter said...

Jessica: you have to question _everybody_ on the ship. And some words pop up at the rocks.
Anonymous: you can't break him from his trance on that rock. Let Myosotis enter a trance instead.

-k said...

I believe that the final cloth piece is in the hidden cave beneath the water machine in the lab. Good Luck!

Pluto said...

Beautiful game, my computer also did the wipe when going from screen to screen, but that didn't bother me too much. I didn't figure out the 'quick travel' map thing for a while, but when I did, used it all the time. Very nice. Played the first as well, also a nice game, although slightly different art style and such. Played just as nicely as this one, though. I'm looking forward to the next one!

Tanja said...

Did it, all on my own. Loved it all the way true. Magnificent!

Anonymous said...

nooo i cant play :(

Anonymous said...

Where on earth is the word "business" ??? And how do you make Myosotis go into a trance??
