The Lost Children

Post by P/o Prune »

I have taken the liberty of moving DazaKiwi's post here.

Congrats on releasing a new game Lazzah.

This may seem like a silly question, but how do you go inside something like a Hut in your game? go inside hut or enter hut gives a "Please do not use ENTER or GO IN when playing this adventure." It doesn't offer how you are suppose to do that after that bit of info. The text describing the By Forester's Hut, suggests..."you can go In to the hut". But if you type that you get that message.

Hi Daza,

Oops, sorry, first bug! You just type IN to get into the hut.

Edit: Now corrected and v.2 uploaded. You now can GO in any direction but not ENTER anything. I absolutely HATE the verb ENTER, a throwback to the 1980's when I used to actually play text adventures. Enter this, enter that, it used drive me barmy! :x

Good thing I saw this thread so I knew to download the latest version. :) The games page really does need some way to notify people of recent releases, doesn't it?

On a related note...

I was considering adding a link to your ADRIFT release, Lazzah, but maybe you'd like to do it yourself?... If you add a NEWS item you can keep that existing page and let people know of the new release at the same time.

Nevermind, I just went ahead and did it. You can edit it as you like.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for doing that, I intended to do it myself at the weekend when I have more time.

Seeing as I had plenty of time, I figured I'd save you the trouble. :) Cheers!
