The switching characters is nice, and this is good for a first game, but overall it needs significantly more development. Many of the actions that I tried resulted in the default responses, even to ordinary things. More of the items need additional aliases, and some of the verb patterns that seemed like they should have worked did not.
Nice little game. Way too short for my likes. but nicely done. btw. I like the switching character thing. I have used it in wizard and am going to use it again in wizard2. If you want each character to have his own inventory what i did was create a dummy room for each character. So when you switch you run a script that moves everything in inventory to the dummy room and vice versa.
I posted a response to this on the Axe Software Forums.. very well done! It took a moment for me to figure it out, but I managed to finish the game. I really like your idea for switching between different characters. It was once mentioned to me that Slackers Inc. should do something like that, but we'd already began production on our game and it would of been to complicated. Congratulations!
Yep, that did the trick. I actually saw that little menu, but I hadn't realized it switched characters!
I give it three stars, because it's a bit small, and because the switching characters was a little unclear. In a bigger game, having to switch between characters to make use of individual special skills could provide the recipe for an awesome game!
