Clever magical spells a tomb...with a donkey, March 6, 2023

This game was entered in Seedcomp, and is primarily based around the 'seed' of the same name, a text file by Rovarsson containing a vivid description of a game centered around getting stuck in a tomb with a donkey and a bowl of blood and a cat mummy.

This finished game dropped the altar/blood angle but added the rest nicely. You play as a spellcaster struck back in time during a duel. Your spells have scattered to the wind, and after trying to steal some raw materials from a palace you are forced to flee, eventually finding yourself at a tomb.

The pattern of this game is gentle gameplay, generally finding a spell and using it either immediately or in the next room. Some puzzles add in extra twists for more engagement. I got stuck once or twice and I did need a hint in the room with the platforms (I had tried (Spoiler - click to show)LEVITATE ME and received no strong feedback, so I assumed that levitate wasn't the solution.)

Overall, this was enjoyable. I didn't connect on an emotional level, but I found it soothing and sweet.

Yeah, one of the things I nagged Dee Cooke about while testing was that (Spoiler - click to show)LEVITATE should apply to everything!

I mostly suggested it just to get lots of humorous responses ((Spoiler - click to show)especially from the donkey or the cat, or trying to float the massive stone cylinder), but your attempt actually is a reasonable alternate puzzle solution.
