    In Search of Clues is an Adventure/Comedy game. It has no combat, only interaction and a few puzzles.


    The complete game lasts around 20 minutes.


    In Search of Clues is a direct prequel to In Search of Dragons, which you can find over here.

    Ah, I remember playing this earlier!

    It's a great game, though a little short. I enjoyed the comedy in it, and the ending was just great. xD

    I thought the hedge maze was a little hard, though. For example, you can't see the guard on the left until you've walked up in sight of him, so there's a chance you're already caught before even realising!

    Other than that, it was a good game, as I previously stated.

    Can't wait for "In Search of Dragons."

    Also, is it just me or is Owen a bit.. feminine?

    the light alarm puzzle was so easy I didn't use my eye. Really I can see the whole map without it.

    This was a very fun experience. I loved the humour - it was subtle enough, yet still very funny. The Owen-Keith relationship is really amusing to watch, they really work very well as characters together :D

    Yes, a nice little game with fun lines and a surprising end. And great as a prequel, it makes curious about the rest...

    Sadly In Search of Dragons is currently on hiatus. Hopefully we'll be able to complete it next year.

    People seriously, play this game!

    You won't lose nothing, the game is short, sweet and funny as hell to play...you will enjoy it, trust me.

    Also Owen and Keith are hilarious.

    I like everything that comes out from Fomar and Indrah (even the rants)...ahahah

    I am getting the error: Unable to find VL Gothc font. 

    Any clues on how to fix this?

    *Edit* 

    I fixed this. I searched my PC and found the font, then installed it.

    I got that error too. I'm pretty sure the VLGothic font should be in the Fonts folder?

    You must double click the font file and select to install it.
