Story-line:

Spoiler



You awaken to the sound of howling wind, strange sounds and someones voice. You immediately respond, but before you open your eyes -- it's gone! Soon after, you hear a CRASH! -- The room begins to rotate, you feel yourself lifted! Closing your eyes shut, you wish for it to be over! The room settles and the sounds disappear, however, it feels colder!


How? It's the middle of summer? 


You open your eyes and find yourself somewhere else, a different room -- a tattered, abandoned room.



Characters:

Spoiler



Hunter.png
Hunter


Hunter is a ambitious learner and problem solver. He is determined to explore and figure out why they have been -- teleported to the village!


Jordan.png
Jordan


Jordan is a more straight-forward kind of girl. She would much rather be home and forget this ever happened, but sometimes she too is fascinated by the unknown forces at work.

Features:

Spoiler



Tools - Tools, such as a hammer or an ax, are used to help you get around the environment or obtain secret items.


Energy.png



Energy - Its wicked cold, thus takes a toll on your energy levels. You will need to sleep periodically to continue performing actions.


Energy Share - Both characters can share each others energy when one is too low to perform.


Puzzles - Multiple puzzles are encountered throughout the game. These puzzles must be figured out to get to the next location or event.


Searching - Your player has the ability to search crates, barrels and shelves. However, it may take some time and energy for him to find an item.


Secrets - Within the game are secrets that are optional to find, but when found can be an interesting artifact!



Gameplay:

Spoiler



It's just you, one companion and your brain.


You find a way out of the village by utilizing multiple tools that you find along the way.


Each action you perform will take away a portion of your energy. If your energy runs low, you will not be able to perform anymore actions until your rested.


Your energy can also be shared! If you have Jordan in your party, you can use her energy if Hunter's energy is low. -- Just about any bed can be used to restore energy.


Your player also has the ability to search things such as shelves and barrels. This also takes energy! It also may take the player a bit to find them as the script is randomized by chance percentages.


The game does not have any battle sequences!

This seems like an interesting game, but when I downloaded it and played it for some reason every time I try to leave the room in the very first scene, it just says 'I'm way too tired...' I tried sleeping and then leaving but it still comes up with the message... it also happens whenever I interact with the bookcase. I did try sleeping multiple times but it still doesn't work... is there anything that you have to do to progress? I've tried interacting with everything in the room, the cracks, wardrobe, bookshelf, floorboards, the wall... it just doesn't work... what do I have to do? >.<

I have looked into this and fixed it! It seems the Vars wont loading, looks like I changed the variable name and it tweaked! I dunno why I did that, but I'm going to update it today! It takes some time because of my internet and computer speed! :)  

Thanks for letting me know!

Your welcome! I have been using RPG Maker VX ACE for quite a while, but I'm still new to the way they compress things! I used to use GMK (Game Maker 8.0) before this and it used to just make exe's and a directory (optional)

Let me know if there are anymore errors! I'm wicked quick on fixing stuff, however, I did extensive testing and it should work fine! :)

It's blocked from every site.

Edit:  Found a bug with Axe. SPOILER WARNING!

Obtained it but don't know when! Got "Nothing found" text all the time. And later after breaking big crate - axe was again in the lower box. Got 2 axes.

Hahaha! I actually did that as a small little joke! hehe I'm funny like that!

SPOILER

There is nothing in the crate!
As for the axe problem, I will check that out tomorrow morning when I have access to RPG MAKER! I have not experienced that error yet, but I'll look at it! :)

EDIT: I just played it and I discovered that it DOES do that!! hahahahahahaha OMG I forgot to use a self-switch on it!! HAHAHA

Searched everywhere, but can't open tree house. The door says it's closed, I want to use hammer like before, but I can't ;)

My only clue is that 3 pieces of paper, but I don't get it :> Could you give me a little hint?

Ps. Very nice game! Love the idea.

Edit: Ok, got it! :) Passed thru, but it was the end. Waiting for more!

Originally I was going to make this a mini-game, but decided to write a story! I am currently making a sequel! 

Also, I have a rule about my games. I make mystery games for a reason, everything is a mystery! You have to figure it out and use your mind. If you look hard enough, you may find some secrets!  ;)
