come now jonson, there is no strange thing about the english that is being written in game.
But the dancing shadow, that was torture to sit through.

So I opened a box and saw a guy dance, then i couldn't do anything else.

Not since Myst have I experienced the unfulfillment of clicking a mouse in just the right place for no satisfying reason.

I hit this evil game last Friday. Dear god this was frustrating, but I broke out of the room at last.

Everything happens for a reason - even the dance.

Bloody hell, I can't even get find the dancing - or open the last drawer, for that matter.

You have to wait for the animation to finish. Ugh.

Otherwise, a pretty neat-o link.

That's it...now I'm frustrated...and I should be writing a paper...hints?

the dancing man points to a special point on the wall. click on it more than once.

And you gotta wait till the dancing ends, or you'll never write that paper.

What about the right eye?

Okay, got out of the room. Still unfulfilled.

CLICK EVERYTHING, REPEATEDLY.

man, I've got a box with tape but only one battery. I cannot figure out where the extra battery is. I also have an extra key that is just burning a hole in my inventory

I'm staying in that fucking room forever... and I'm fine with it.

made it - finally. Not much of a payoff, but it was better than working.

You know, if this happened in real life, you wouldn't be able to escape from the room because there's no access to a web browser. Well, I guess you could try all 9999 combinations.

This was pretty fun. I enjoyed it.

WHERE IS THE BATTERY

Keyser, face the blank wall and click on the bottom of the screen, on the left side.

Wow, this is addictive. How do you open that friggin' box? :)
posted by unreason at 5:38 AM on February 17, 2004


the top of the box has shapes in which various items fit.
posted by t r a c y at 6:02 AM on February 17, 2004


Yeah, I put in the two rings, but what else do you put in?
posted by unreason at 6:10 AM on February 17, 2004


okay, that's really frustrating...
posted by bullitt 5 at 7:50 AM on February 17, 2004


Solved it! Can't wait for the next room...
posted by unreason at 8:08 AM on February 17, 2004


SPOILER ALERT: Solution here.

it really should have ended with the door opening into a busy street or a beautiful garden. nonetheless, i hope he makes more of these puzzle thingies.

That spoiler page isn't totally accurate, regarding picking up the screwdriver. You can do it your first try.

That blinking metal rod caused me all kinds of pain. I couldn't ever seem to get it to come up.

simple, clear, gameplay
dancing on a crimson wall
Takagism sense

(far better than the really terrible limerick that I might have posted)
