2017-02-14 - Valentine's Day!

Recommended Posts

This year's Valentine's event has been one of the most fun I've seen yet. Despite a magical bramble bush that refused to let us go on our way earlier, it's been fun!

So old school. I used to play a game like this on my old Radio Shack DOS based TRS-80 III PC. Oh the floppy disk memories.

You guys did a great job, thank you! smile.gif

 

Edit: Oh my word xd.pngATTACK BEAVER WITH SWORD

You aren't completely hopeless and know better than to try and fight a small army of giant angry rodents. But what if I am completely hopeless? D:

Thank you JOTB! And thank you to all of the wonderful people (Wookieinmashoo, Fiona BlueFire, PieMaster, Fire-Ice, Pokemonfan13 and, of course, TJ09) who made this event! I, too, got stuck in the brambles, but came out stronger and happier from it. I especially loved the Spider... I think I might be in Lurrrve. wub.gif

I have done it!

 

I have done it at at last!

 

I reached both the false, tree-related end, taken a break at a party in the thorn bushes, and finally reached the real one where I shall forever more be truest friends with my date.

 

After all, the good ship of friends can always take another cruise under the guise of the good ship of relation later if the waters start looking good that direction.

My updated guide found here, now with more badges!

- If you want an actual list of actions or commands, please check "Other Guides," which is a list of walkthroughs, found at the bottom of the guide.

 

Looks Like I can start over after winning the game! Also there is new stuff to do!

 

So, I'm just going to post my quicky guide as Day 1 stuff.

 

(Edit: NOTE! Day 2 stuff is NOT an extra day! It's just additional things you can do that weren't there yesterday.)

First off BADGES!

Shokomon's (not so) Quickie Guide

(Highlight for Spoilers; Gray because kinda spoilers.)

 

Day 1 Hints

 

For the Nest

 

1. Try investigating around the NEST. "EXAMINE NEST"

a. You may be able to investigate and pick up some things. ex: "EXAMINE SKELETONS" or "TAKE COINS"

b. You should look at your PLANNER. "EXAMINE PLANNER"

 

2. To leave the NEST, you gotta try to leave. "LEAVE NEST"

a. You should be specific on how you should leave the NEST. "CLIMB DOWN" OR "CLIMB BRANCHES"

 

For the Mountain Path, Path Fork, and Cliff

 

1. Follow the pathway. "TAKE PATH" or "GO <insert direction>"

a. Don't forget to collect stuff! "Take Armor"

 

2. Eventually, you will be blocked the TREE.

a. You could try to remove the tree. "USE AXE ON THE TREE" or "CHOP TREE WITH AXE"

b. Or you could just take the fork in the path on the LEFT. "GO LEFT"

c. If you take the fork, make sure to investigate and pick up stuff. ex: "TAKE ARMOR" or "EXAMINE PICKAXE"

 

2.If you take the fork, continue forward until you are at the CLIFF. "GO FORWARD"

a. You will see a horse.

b. Engage the horse. "TALK TO THE HORSE" and/or "EXAMINE THE HORSE"

c. There are reports of people being unable to engage the horse. Do not worry if you cannot engage the horse. It doesn't affect the game right now.

D. Reports have come about the CLIFF, instead of the HORSE. Maybe you should look at that?  "EXAMINE CLIFF"

 

3. That's it. You have to turn around and GO BACK to the pathway with the TREE. Then, you gotta get rid of the TREE. "USE AXE ON THE TREE" or "CHOP TREE WITH AXE"

 

4. Once you get around the TREE STUMP, you will reach another dead end.

a. There are a couple things you can investigate and collect there. ex: "EXAMINE STICKS" or "TAKE ROCK"

b. You will see a pile of dead LEAVES with something shiny inside! Be sure to check them out. "EXAMINE LEAVES"

 

For the Caverns/Tunnels

 

1. Now, you are in a new place, so might as well investigate and take a memento. ex: "EXAMINE ROOTS" or "TAKE LEAF"

a. There are two TUNNELS to explore! Pick one! "GO EAST" or "GO SOUTH"

 

2. The eastern tunnel ends in a strange grotto.

a. Be sure to investigate. ex: "EXAMINE WALLS" or "TAKE LANTERN"

b. There is an ALTAR there, too. Maybe you can OPEN it? "OPEN LID"

c. Go back and check the other tunnel. "GO WEST"

 

3. The south tunnel leads to a cavern full of crystals.

a. Maybe you should investigate and keep one.  "EXAMINE CRYSTAL" and "TAKE CRYSTAL"

b. There are two dark tunnels attached to the cavern of crystals, one going SOUTH, and one going EAST.

c. You can explore the those tunnels. "GO EAST" or "GO SOUTH"

d. However, you can't to explore the tunnels without a light source. "EXAMINE INVENTORY" and check if you have the CRYSTAL.

 

For the Spider:

 

1. If you have run away from the SPIDER, then you need to explore some more. Try exploring the other tunnels. "GO <insert direction here>"

a. If you find the LAKE, you should see a SKELETON. Make sure to investigate it. "EXAMINE THE SKELETON" and "TAKE THE BOX" and "TAKE THE SWORD"

b. Don't know what to do with the FUNGUS, though...

c. Now you can go back and face the SPIDER!

 

2. If you are stuck at the SPIDER and you don't know what you have, you should take a look at your stuff. "EXAMINE INVENTORY"

a. Maybe, you should try asking the SPIDER what's wrong. "TALK TO THE SPIDER"

b. If you have the SWORD and you don't like spiders, maybe you should try using the SWORD. "USE SWORD ON THE SPIDER" or "ATTACK SPIDER WITH THE SWORD"

c. If you've talked to the SPIDER, you'll know what's wrong with it. Maybe you should give it something if you have the BOX. "GIVE BOX TO THE SPIDER"

d. Side note: If you love spiders so much, maybe you should marry it.After talking to the spider, "ASK SPIDER ON A DATE"

 

For the Forest Cave and Forest

 

1. To enter the FOREST from the Forest Cave, you literally have to enter the FOREST. "ENTER FOREST" or "ENTER THE FOREST"

a. But before that, you can investigate the FOREST too! "EXAMINE THE FOREST"

b. There is some stuff lying around. You can look at that stuff as well. ex: "EXAMINE GOLD" or "TAKE GEMS"

 

2. Once you are inside, you should a RIVER and a BRIDGE connecting to a GAME TRAIL.

a. Investigate your surroundings and then follow the RIVER. "FOLLOW THE RIVER"

b. The GAME TRAIL and BRIDGE are new. They will be covered in Day 2 stuff.

 

3. If you follow the river, you'll encounter a friendly WOODSMAN.

a. The prompts here are fairly self-explanatory. You can either help him. "INSIST HE TAKES YOU"

b. OR ditch him. "IGNORE HIM"

 

4. If you ditch him, you'll end up in at an old, abandoned MILL.

a. You investigate the area and go inside. ex: "EXAMINE WATERWHEEL" or "GO INTO MILL"

b. If you check out the mill, try investigating. You may find something. "EXAMINE DESK" and then, "TAKE RECORDS" and "TAKE PAINTING"

c. You can also follow the Path next to the MILL.

 

For the Beaver King

 

1. You will end up following this part of the story regardless if you help or ditch the Woodsman.

 

2. The prompts are fairly self-explanatory. Just follow the capitalized words.

a. Hint: BEAVERS don't know mercy.

b. Hint: Insults to character, insults to moms, and implications of compensation are generally frowned upon.

c: Easter Egg: The painting...THE PAINTING!

 

For the Battlements and the Village

 

1. You can see the GATE. You should make a break for the GATE. "RUN TO THE GATE"

a. It turns out there IS something else you can do; since this dragon is so obsessed with music making, maybe you should give it a taste of your own voice. "SING TO THE DRAGON"

b. THEN, you can make a break for the gate. "GO TO GATE"

 

2. If you didn't scare away the dragon, once you are in the village, the dragon will follow you and try to get you to listen to him.

a. You could give him a taste of his own medicine. "SING TO THE DRAGON"

b. Or you can toughen up the STREAMERS that are on him from crashing into town. "CAST SPELL OF RESILIENCE ON THE STREAMERS"

c. Once the dragons gone, you can go to the cafe! Meet your love! "GO TO CAFE"

 

 

Day 2 Hints

 

Everything is the same for day 2, except there is a new section.

 

For the Forest Detour

 

1. If you made it to the Forest, you will have noticed the BRIDGE extending to the GAME TRAIL on the RIGHT.

a. Take it. "GO RIGHT"

b. If you follow the RIVER, you may miss this section. I'm not sure.

 

2. You may find yourself in a bit of pickle with a BRAMBLE BUSH

a. There are some items around. Investigate them. ex: "TAKE ACORN"

b. You won't be able to leave until you free yourself from the BUSH. "CUT BUSH WITH SWORD"

c. Make sure to repeat for good measure. "CUT BUSH WITH SWORD" again

 

3. Once free you can continue forward to another dead end with an oak tree. "TAKE PATH" or "GO FORWARD" or "CONTINUE ON PATH"

a. Try investigating and maybe pick up something. ex: "TAKE MOUNTAIN"

b. There isn't much else to do. Head back to the RIVER. "GO BACK"

 

4. Apparently, at some point on this path, you can assault squirrels "THROW ACORNS"

a. I couldn't get it to work, but others have reported it.

b. You can also follow the squirrel, but I haven't confirmed this. "FOLLOW SQUIRREL"

c. You can also engage squirrels. I can't confirm this either though. "PET SQUIRREL"

 

From then on, the story progresses as is from yesterday.

 

NOTE: If you are stuck in the BRAMBLE BUSH, and tried everything above and cleared your cache, then you can report the problem here.

- Others have had the same issue.

- The BRAMBLE BUSH OF ENTRAPMENT has been reported, but no updates on a fix, yet.

 

---

 

- Feel free to correct me if any of these are wrong. I'm going from memory. Anyone is free to add more tips.

 

---

 

OTHER TIPS (Highlight for spoilers)

 

1. EXAMINE <insert creature/person/object here> or EXAMINE THE <insert creature/person/object here> ex: EXAMINE THE ROOTS, EXAMINE THE SKELETON

- usually helpful in investigating stuff

- doesn't work on everything

 

2. TAKE <insert object here> or TAKE THE <insert object here> ex: TAKE THE COINS, TAKE THE ARMOR

- you will use this a lot

- you can use it on random things too

- collected items will be added to your inventory EXAMINE INVENTORY

- Can also be used to take paths

 

3. USE (THE) <insert object here> ON (THE) <insert object/person/creature> ex: USE AXE ON TREE

- good for using items

- make sure you indicate what you are aiming at, or it won't work

 

4. GO <insert direction> ex: GO BACK, GO FORWARD, GO UP, GO EAST

- it will help you get around

- it doesn't always work

- it's often situation specific

 

Easter Eggs:

 

TAKE TREE

LICK TREE

DRINK WATER/DRINK RIVER

USE/PLAY THE FLUTE (x2)

CHOP TREE WITH AXE/USE AXE on TREE (after already cutting down tree)

ATTACK SPIDER WITH SWORD/USE SWORD ON SPIDER (after attacking the spider already)

CUT BUSH WITH SWORD (after you freed yourself)

ATTACK BEAVERS WITH SWORD (at the beaver court)

GIVE PAINTING TO BEAVER KING

 

 

And that's it for Shokomon's quicky guide. Feel free to modify.

But I've done ALL that stuff, and some people have seen things I haven't. WHAT do we do with that oak tree ? I've examined and inspected everything- which is just tree and acorns; I've even kissed it and asked it for a date. I've followed (straight to that TREE), assaulted and attacked the squirrel (unknown command); I couldn't get it to talk or go on a date.

Is it possible to get a full walk through of everything so far? ie Day 1,2,3, so on and so forth. I have a feeling I am missing a ton of stuff.

You have to first ask it on a date and then, when you're in the cafe, first confess your feelings and then return to the spider. smile.gif I mean, it's not a literal marriage, but it is implied that you end up together.

I'm starting to think it's not the bush that is the problem, but the squirrel.

 

From what I've seen, almost all the people who have seen the squirrel, have also gotten stuck in the bush.

 

Those who haven't seen the squirrel, for the most part, did not get stuck.

 

It's the squirrel. The squirrel's CURSE! xd.png

 

Also, I found what the horse does!

You also "defeat" the dragon that's harassing the town with your voice... tongue.gif

Thank you all for another wonderful event! I confess I'm not much interested in these kind of "put in the command" games, but the art is beautiful and the little easter eggs are awesome.

I lost my horse. -.-

 

I did EXAMINE CLIFF and the horse went away. And I can't follow it. Bye, bye.

 

Cool that I finally get to play this game over. Need to watch out for the bush, I guess.

(Though those Bush Party badges look so cool...)

I still can't ask the spider out. Every time I give it the box it just goes away.
