May 8th, 2018-A Slightly Updated Version of the Game!!! Huzzah!
Click on the Link at the bottom of this Post to Play! NOTE: landscape mode is best on tablets and phones. To access the Very Important Side Bar Thing, if your device decides that it should be closed by default, click on the arrow at the top left of the screen. Also, it is a Big File. It may take a while to load. Cultivate Patience!
We at Atherton’s Magic Vapour (and by “we,” what I mean is, “I”) like very complicated projects. The more laborious the project is, the more we like it. We therefore elected to make a Twine Game. That one didn’t work out, so we made another. That one never got finished, so we made another. We liked this one, so we decided to make the thing Much Bigger. It is now Very Fancy, with traps, mysterious clues, hit-points, a corruption tracker, and painstakingly-constructed backgrounds for each location.
We are pretty pleased with our game, on the whole. Also, we are now dropping this “we” thing.
I am really very pleased with this game. All of the bits seem to work, as far as I have been able to establish. There will probably be further updates as players tell me about things that don’t work and things that irritate them. But I’ve worked on this thing for 8 months now, and I think it is ready to be played by people other than me (and Andy– thanks!!!!!).
Please play! No, really. Do it. And– share! Tell people about the game! Then, more people will play! That will be great! And tell me what you think of it! Comment in the Comments section below. If the game has a bug, tell me. If you loved it, tell me. If you hated it, tell me why– really nicely.
BE WARNED: The Perils of Sir Reginald, Bart. was designed for play on computers; you can try to play on a tablet or a phone, but it may not look very good. Landscape mode is the best way to play; in fact, it seems to work well that way. If you are playing on a device with a smaller screen (like tablets and smartphones), the game may load with the sidebar closed by default. The sidebar is pretty important for gameplay, so open it occasionally to see if it gives you any new options. You can do that by clicking on the arrow on the top left of your screen.
