I'll see about adding one in once I release an update.

So just to clarify, are the graphics not re-sizing at all once you go full-screen? I'd like to see a screenshot if you get the chance so I can figure out exactly what's going on here.


1) You will always first go into window mode to exit if you don't give a shutdown option.

2) As I said, the image is the size I mentioned earlier, and clicking on F4 only fills the rest of my screen with black. But never mind, I won't bother with the game. There are just too many things I don't like, invisible enemies are one of them.

cannot save game

Postby jincyk » Sat Oct 28, 2017 12:27 am

I've downloaded both demo and game (paid) and am still unable to save. Is anyone else having this problem? If I can't save a game, I'll need to get my money back.

Are you just getting an error beep when you try to save? If so, make sure the "www/save" folder is included in the same directory as the .exe file.

- Never foundthe 14th hidden message taken from floor 6

- What id the "going nowhere fast" steam achievment ?

Thanks in advance for hints

7-zip think open also rar files, and it should be at freeware...

Am at a standstill in Level 6 of Black Tower. Have met up with Ned there and he relayed his story. He said he opened up the final gate, but I'm at a loss as to what he opened. He also tells me he'll have another map for me shortly. Floor 4 still has the blue floor lights blocking further exploration. In the cloning lab, I am being asked for a 6-digit passcode. Only found and used both 5-digit passcodes. Not sure if anyone is playing this game, but I'd sure appreciate some guidance as to where I should be going next.

For the person asking about the teddy bear

Look for a scared kid in the church


Thanks

I restarted the game to see if a new beginning would give me fresh eyes. Alas, I got stuck at the same spot. Not sure if anyone will respond, as there was no response before, but I thought I'd try one last time before giving up. Here's where I am.

Level 6 - Tech

I have 2 blue gates opened on floor 4. Gate #2 was opened with the number 42 (the answer to the universe) and Gate #4 was opened by Ned. Since Ned said he would open the "last gate," I'm certain that Gate #1 and Gate #3 should have been opened by now. I've clicked and bumped into every wall looking for a secret route. These are the only possible loose ends I can see.

I have dozens of these two items
Shrine Core Shards - A shard missing from a Shrine Core. Used with a Broken Shrine Core. Can be sold.
Shrine Core Fragments - A fragment missing from a Shrine Core. Used with a Broken Shrine Core. Can also be sold.

I have no idea where to find a Broken Shrine Core.

There is a broken crystal which, when clicked, Abbie shows ???. Do I need something physical to react with this broken crystal, or is Abbie just remembering this was her launch site into the past?

I am still unable to find the 6-digit passcode needed in the cloning lab with all the cylinders.

There is a non-functioning portal in the King's room. Should I have already found a way to fix and use it?

Quest-The Golden Essence. I have placed 2 Essence Keys (one found in the crypt, the other found in a chest reached by a sliding arrow puzzle Level 4. Should I already have found the third key purportedly to be "amongst the stars?"

I would certainly appreciate any help. It would appear that those who have finished the game are not returning to this discussion and there doesn't appear to be any new players. Attempts to contact the developer have been in vain.

Regarding the key for the level 1 prisons and the level 2 door, once I put it together and used it on the level 2 door I don't see it in my inventory anymore and can't get into the prison locked doors. Am I missing something or is this a glitch?

Thank you in advance!

Please disregard - I didn't realize that the secret prison path was only available after completing certain quests. Fun game!

Lady 33 - did you ever get any response to your questions? I'm stuck in the same place.

Sorry, been awhile since I've checked here. Thanks for the emails.

Since I've had a few people now get stuck on the same spot, I'm going to go ahead and put the answer to the password on Tech floor 6 in the cyclinder room here:

Spoiler: show
947116


Sorry for the trouble!

-Tiamat is found in a hidden area on floor 1 (check the ice part) later in the game. Strife is hidden underground the Castle floor later in the game (after reaching the 9th floor I believe)

14th message is in a house in Westvale.

Edit: since I don't actively monitor this thread, anyone who has a question or gets stuck can send me an email: jkweath@gmail.com.

Sorry, I'm away on vacation and have been busy doing real adventuring. :) I emailed Joshua and he gave me a hint about that area. Joshua has given the passcode above already, but I'll post the hint here for anyone who might need just a nudge.

Small hint...
Spoiler: show
The answer lies in the same room. Look beyond the locked gate.


Bigger hint...
Spoiler: show
If you don't see anything different about the cylinders, try putting your game in full screen mode. (I couldn't see any difference until I did that, but then my eyes aren't that young anymore.)


Giveaway hint...
Spoiler: show
Look for the purple-rather-than-green cylinders and note their numerical placement. Start from the top row and work down.


Big thank you to Joshua for responding to those emails and returning here to post. I am truly loving this game. It has all the elements of an RPG I like best: likable characters, great storyline, and puzzles that are solvable with logic and not speed/reflexes, and a really good balance between presenting a challenge without making fights so frustrating you feel like you can never win even a simple battle never mind a boss battle. I highly recommend this game and I'm looking forward to the next.
