Is unity on a down day for anyone else? It's taking ages to update... (Then again I haven't used it in a while)

Just give it time, it is a big game. The graphics and play style reminded me of the old King's Quest games from Sierra.

Waiting for it to load. It moving at a rate of about 1/16 of an inch per hour.

It was finally done loading. It showed me some pictures and... started loading again. :( Then my computer gave me a window saying Unity web player has unexpectedly shut down.

Didn't have any problems loading it - but I can't figure out what to do about Nuchi's broken telly...

you should download the game at www.olavandthelute.com

the webversion is slow because the game is a bit bigger! the standalone version is way better anyway.

Thanks!

Cheers Shelly, nice game!

First?

I did take awhile to load but once I finally got it up and running, it was a neat little game. Controls were a little off though. I see a lot of potential here for a much more complex set of tunes that can be combined to do different things. Maybe a future Bonte project?

Noooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! I really want to play this one and it won't load! As soon as it gets past the intro I get a white screen that says "The content was stopped because a fatal content error has been detected.". :'(

Too big I guess.

Well, seems to be heavily inspired by an old game form LucasArts called "Loom"

A very nice concept for the game. I enjoyed finding the different lute spells. I was disappointed that you couldn't use the spells on other things besides their intended purpose though.

**spoilers**oh my god. not even fair. I got all the way through the game, my guy was lying on the ground, not really sure if he's a live or not, the loom glows really bright, then boom. I get a white screen that says "fatal error."

Thanks a bunch shelly alon for the link to the real game. Do you have to play the game all the way through in one sitting ?

The game is fairly short, but you can use the spells on a few items for fun before awaking the loom. Might not want to finish as the very long credits make the lame ending a waste of time.

 

If you are you looking for a solution or a walkthrough for one of the game links, please have a look in the comments.
