Well it looks like I was mentioned here. I am THAT one. The most horrible person in existence by Lumin's claim. Of course, that sentiment was only garnered after me thoroughly beating her in this game, and only after a few hours. (Warning! From here bragging may occur. Though it most of it may not be intentional)

Today is third day I've had this game downloaded, and around midnight last night I managed to have my best run yet. Of course I mostly attribute this to luck, but a win is a win. The golden number for this magical play through is 47. A grand total of 47 silver pieces. If I'm not mistaken, then this is also the highscore. I was transcribing for a good long while, but I stopped transcribing after that run. Right there is evidence of my success, but I also took a super low quality picture of the screen from my phone. So I have proof of my success through two venues. Should TheOdidactus ask for them, I will present them. As of now, however, Lumin has already seen the picture.

Anyhow, I still need to do some of the other major things Tingalan has to offer, so I'll just leave this post at that. Winning is possible. Just keep at it.

Well, Ebon has now done the impossible

But it's fine.

*punches monitor*
*tears map into tiny pieces*
*deletes game*
*cries*

Everything is fine. :)

This is going to be great!! :D
Now Lumin has two Drifters to fight... David (the terrible) and Ebon (the not so terrible yet, but slowly getting up there.)

Site admin, leans back in his chair, pouring himself a nice big whisky and enjoys the show. :Thanks:

Really hard things to do in Tingalan/Achievements which are very hard to do


* Get the highest score

* Get the highest score without "savescumming" (that is, saving your game and replaying it) (This is a distinctly different accomplishment and generally what I mean by "the high score").

* Sing the Song all the way to the end

* Become a Warlock

* Cheat Derzelas

* Find the way to draw the game

* End the game with the highest number of "terrible secrets"

* Unlock the secret characters...all of them.

* Compete with other players: that is, start playing at the same time, no saves, and see which of the two of you ends with the highest score (be advised of course that right when you start you can "wait until dawn" and end the game with a score of 1, whereas someone that goes to the edge of space and time with a backpack full of treasure, but gets eaten on the way home, gets a score of 0)

* Translate the entire history of the mountain people

Whew okay Ebon is still a failure then. 8)

When I actually get time to map relentlessly like I've been planning I'm expecting to have to rely on savescumming, but I've been approaching this game more as a roguelike than IF so I've been trying to avoid that during normal play.

Dang it. Alright then. I'll just have to do it without save scumming then. Without save scumming I still have a score of 11, but I have neither a transcript nor picture of that, so eh.

I'll be back in a bit to crush Lumin's hopes and dreams once more.

Is filesize the reason this isn't on the IFDB either? When the soundless version goes up you'll want to make sure to upload it, the game is missing out on a lot of potential exposure.

No, the reason it's not on IFDB is that I didn't know about it until I read your post.
A slimmed down version of the game may be released, but not soon.

I'd love to say the reason why is something like "because I'm a big important law student at a big important law school" but the unfortunate truth is that it's only 50% that and 50% the fact that this game has gotten so much recent positive response that I decided to begin work on another idea i've had for many years.

It is probably a good idea to announce your game over on the intfiction.org as well. Might pickup a few extra players, although they are a bit non-windowsy over there.
