Whoa, second playthrough was...less fortuitous. (But I advise people who begin to doubt that the game is all forests and streams to keep playing, as there are a few other things to find, even some signs of civilization!)
Woo! I beat it! (I didn't even know it was a game with an ending =). I still had a perfectly healthy arm and leg left over at the end, too. =P
(Flask helped a lot...not sure if the Rope did anything for me or not).
Random fact I learned yesterday -- if you use Firefox and have an adblock plugin and are experiencing choppiness, it may help to disable it while running a Flash game.
No guarantees this will work, but I hope it helps someone! It's helped me with other games that were giving me lag problems.
Rather fun! I can't find the blasted 14th key, though. =P
(Mouselook sensitivity is very low, but that's probably just my particular mouse settings affecting things)
I like the style of it so far, too =) (As usual, playing a cool Unity game makes me want to learn how to use Unity)
Played it and liked it! I found the computer to be pretty challenging actually, though that might just be because I'm bad at Othello ;) My wife and I played a ocuple games last night as well.
Much better than the way I played othello all my life (where you could place tiles anywhere, not just someplace that flips a tile; and where you didn't need to start in the center).
Lovely and though-provoking! Mainly the thought it provoked is, why is this fun? why is it SO FUN? I decided it is because of the great writing.
What I feel cheapens it slightly is that if half the cereal is spilling outside of the bowl (if you're pouring at the edge of the bowl) then the number still goes up as fast, which means you don't really need good aim, which makes it less challenging as a shooter.
But still, GOTY 2012 (Cereal Semifinals Qualifier)!
I don't think that anybody realizes that the lack of restrictions is the POINT of this game -- so that you can do whatever you like with the chess pieces. No, it is not a great feat of programming, but it is a highly useful thing to have on the internet in case you should ever want it. =) Downvoting it for not having placement rules would be like downvoting a hidden object game for not having doublejump.
That being said, things like better graphics and a reset button would be cool. And maybe a toggleable "snap to grid" option.
But Dazynal was right, the internets has no love for this (strangely).
