About the Story

Overcome a series of illustrated obstacles on The Path.

The path is a linear parser-based puzzle game that strips away many of the tropes of traditional text adventures that beginners may feel overwhelming.

Next to zero narrative. Death / Failure is an integral mechanic. Play session time is short, but multiple trips down the path may be required.

Easy mode (USE command accepted), and hard mode (USE command not accepted + CHEAT keyword supported).

A piece of art honoring the great era of puzzle driven games, March 30, 2019
by 8bit_era (Berlin)

I really appreciated "The Path" and I see where it draws inspiration from. I grew up with adventures being more puzzle-oriented than narrative. What I particularly love about this adventure is that it intentionally throws out all narration to focus on the notably great puzzles you encounter while you proceed with your journey on the path. The graphics are extraordinary beautiful. You can see that they have been created with passion and and absolute understanding of how pixel art works. The refreshing concept in addition make this a wonderful experience. It's nice to see that in a world of narrative games, there still is room for an adventure that reduces everything down to the essence of early text-/graphic adventures, while the story behind it is up to your very own imagination. Kudos!
