the secret flame [browser]

Most have given up but will you go all the way to find a cure in the adventure game The Secret Flame, created by Thomas Lean and friends for the 'keep it alive' themed Ludum Dare 46 game jam? (controls: arrows keys to move, E to talk to characters and mouse to control the flame)

Really nice!

Very impressive. Where do I find the 6th torch?

the 6th torch is next to the odd colored bush

Finished the game, very nice. Don't remember any 6th torch though.

What odd colored bush? I can't find the last torch anywhere

Calli Arcale said...

I cannot find it either. No sixth torch, no odd colored bush, and I seem to be stuck. Pity, it's a pretty game.

Short but nice. Not sure at the end if I succeeded or blew myself up though.

Only needed to light three of the six torches to progress. Also, that tune the guy on the bridge is playing no doubt is helpful, but I just brute forced the music code.

is that the entire game? is it just lighting the torches or am i missing something. Im not mad i really like the game and i love the animation but im kinda confused

You can brute force both "codes". I noticed that the "rune floor" design is that same design that is on the person's clothes. You have to match the symbol I assume.

For the 2nd part, I am assuming that the melody matches the tones played on each grave, but couldn't really tell so I forced it.

The game is really good. I wish there were more to it. I would buy this game if it were a whole adventure!

What a waste -- all style, but no substance.

Thought it was building to something more, only really 2 puzzles. Interesting concept, just a bit lacking in content.

For the 'melody' puzzle, symbols light up on each grave when you get the right order - helps with the brute forcing

I'm probably dumb, but how do you start? I'm stuck before even beginning in a tiny clearing between the cliff, trees, and rocks near the mauve pointy-hatted wizard. I've clicked just about everything and explored all of the small space but what next? The other guy tells me nothing useful when I converse. I can burn away the flowers and sizzle the snow but that's it. Can anyone help?

Try to burn the bushes
