News

This version includes a brand new prologue (attempting to remove a lot of the criticism the original version received relating to the long, non-interactive intro, while at the same time reducing the amount of "telling" that is done elsewhere in the game.) I've made the castle escape sequence much more forgiving, I've fixed a lot of bugs and also cleaned things up a little bit in places.

A complex adrift game allowing choice of abilities set in medieval times, August 1, 2017

This is a large Adrift game, in which, after an extended prologue, you are cursed into a form of your choosing: rat, fox, or snake.

As an animal, it is your job to be restored to your original form and find your lost love, Princess Tevona.

Overall, this was done pretty well, but the Adrift parser was pretty frustrating (I used Adrift Runner 4.0).

Pull yourself together, Ainsley. Just one more rehearsal until the big day, assuming nothing catastrophic happens. But really, all you have to do is get your motley crew of actors to run their parts once through from beginning to end....
