About the Story

If you like flatulent dwarfs, pretty faeries, sausages, Monty Python humor and getting mercilessly abused by a game, then The Dark World is for you!

You are in a dark hole... from there you have to guess what to do next and how to proceed.

It is a maze, an adventure, a puzzle and a magical kingdom filled with ridiculous and silly characters and scenarios. Take time to look around, look closer and even closer again to discover lots of hidden clues and weird and wonderful treasures.

This game will kill you - literally! But don't worry, you get to live again and again until you get it right and discover the hidden treasure. It will give you many hours, days or weeks of fun - depending on how much of a numbskull you are.

Beware! Nothing is as it seems...

Enjoyable gameplay, engaging challenge., August 12, 2018

A fun game that throws unusual challenges at you right from the start. I was frequently bouncing between laughing my head off and groaning in frustration as the game seemed to want to spite me with sudden death as much as it loved to put me in hilariously ridiculous situations. The road to victory is stacked with unforeseen menaces and creative rewards that often required me to look much closer then I normally have to. Finally beating it was a rewarding experience although I feel like I still haven't fully explored everything the game has to offer.

Fighting with the parser , July 31, 2019
by calindreams (Birmingham, England)

It seems like this game was a labour of love. The game uses a nice font and there is some nice comic touches.

Apparently this game is 'cruel' on the Zarfian scale, but I couldn't even get through the first room. The parser seems to be pretty non standard and most inputs come back with some odd responses. The narrative voice suggests you turn the lights on, but 'turn on lights' or 'turn lights on', don't work (just typing 'lights' does work). Whether I am just not understanding the game mechanics, I'm not sure, but there are no instructions.

The game needs some serious play testing. I look forward to seeing something in the future after the author has got to grips with some of the coding issues.

By looking at the description of the game, there seems to be a lot to experience. But most experienced gamers will probably give up at the first few hurdles.

It's a shame to give this a one star rating, but as it stands it isn't playable, even though there may be a good game in there somewhere.
