This is an adventure game with mechanics similar to popular classics like monkey island, if you are familiar with that game franchise, you will find this game quite easy.
I was originally going for a classic text adventure game with a completely different idea and theme, but then @Zymf suggested I create a navigation map for my game and wanting to create an interactive map led me to take this game in a new direction.
Thanks and credit goes to the providers of demos and POCs that were used and extended in this game.
A Special thank you to @Soren for being the game manager and would-be co-host. A last thank you to @Luna without whom I wouldn't be back and making games.


The theme is a scavenger hunt and the setting is a 4-level mall. You must clear all 4 stages to win the game.


To clear each level of the mall you must find and correctly analyze the clues to get the password/passphrase. Once the time limit is reached for the level, players with the password will advance to the next level. Solving level 4 means winning

Demo Level:
I have made a small demo for you guys to play, it is meant to show you what it'd be like to play externally, the actual game is a bit different and the puzzles are not as easy (they are still easy, don't worry).

P.S: This was tested in chrome and ff (latest versions), don't play it on mobile and no IE either, it's still not great with html5. Oh, As a developer, I must beg you to never build a site this way, follow the proper development process and use MVC, replicating code and resources is a waste of time, effort and will be a nightmare for maintenance. This site is built so disjointedly to allow for the internal play method and because it won't be used again after this game.

@Soren, there's only 1 part that's a riddle and it was written by me so you know it won't be hard this is my 1st time writing a riddle
The rest is quite easy, just like the demo, you follow the steps and you use the clues I give you and you'll find the answer.
And you're not dumb, don't say that about yourself -_-

@Lamby, you're alive! Yay <3
Yes this is game, I'm not sure you'll like it but I hope you do =)

@SoulEaterQUEEN, I did want to make it a team game at first, but the play style is mostly individual and splitting the clues between teammates, would mean dependency on others. If someone were to be inactive, their team would suffer, that's not sth I want in my game.


@wen294, I know, my hand died when I was testing it out... Thankfully, no other puzzles require that much use of mouse =3

btw guys, we'll revisit the phase length after phase 1 is over and you have a better idea of how long it would take you to clear a level. I personally think you guys would be done really quickly, I'm making the phase long because people seem to be busy, that's all.

Sweet~ though I'd be down for a team based game in the future. I like to motivate my teammates to be active in general.
Thanks Gravey for all the hard work you put in this game!

Level 1




Overall Progress



●▬▬▬▬▬๑۩۩๑▬▬▬▬▬●


You acquired the map and upon entering the mall, your personal belongings along with your cellphone were taken from you. You were informed that any new developments would be announced over the PA system. A few minutes later, you hear the host over the PA requesting that all participants head to the "Meditation Garden" and pick up their 1st set of clues to being the hunt. You head there and acquire a piece of paper with numbers on it:


The host wishes you good luck and points you in the direction of the exit.

●▬▬▬▬▬๑۩۩๑▬▬▬▬▬●



Since most votes were for external play, we will play the game externally, I will post after the time limit is reached for each level, update the map and show player progress. You have 72 hours to solve the puzzles and pm me the password @dangerous-grave in order to clear this level. After this we will revisit the phase length if you guys think it's too long/short.

Level 1 map:

  2. @Chione
  3. @darkgreenwillow
  4. @Zymf

Really? I find sliding puzzles hard, I prefer jigsaw puzzles but I didn't like the way the puzzle turned out when I tried jigsaws.
A&J are initials of 2 people here in the club, whether I'm going with real names or usernames is sth only I know >:)

@wen294, almost there, you can do it! ^^

@zymf, did you like the unicorn? I did that just for you =D

wtf. Just translated that code. What does it have to do with anything??

@grave_robber, if you think something might be the password/passphrase and you send it in, will get notified in advance if it's actually correct or not? And if you find out yourself later that it's incorrect, will you be able to change your submitted password/passphrase?

why? could you pm me a screenshot? Make sure cookies are enabled on your browser, without cookies, the game won't run correctly.

You need a password or a pass phrase, if you get sth that's not a single word or a small phrase then it's still not the final answer but a clue and should be analyzed.

and yes, I will reply and you can keep trying as many times as you need before the time expires.

@chione, thanks for the pm, I fixed the bug and published the new fix.

I apologize for that and congrats on clearing the level ^^

If anyone had that problem, just know that refreshing the page would have worked, it's just that you went back to the map faster than your browser could create the cookie in the puzzle store and see it in the map.

Anyway, it's fixed, so please try again and I hope you enjoy the game.

You're the 3rd person to complain about it, I know your pain, I find it hard too. For some though, it's really easy T_T

@Zymf, you should teach us all how to solve sliding puzzles after this level.

Hmm.. I have a guess as to what the password might be. But I haven't found a use for the "A+J" carving yet. I checked the all the Game Queues and there is no such game x.x

No, you can still fix it at this point in time without resetting the whole thing. It's a pain in the ass i know but it's possible. Just that you also have to reshuffle some of the ones that are placed correctly already as well D:
(and yes i hate sliding puzzles as well)
Best tactic for this as far as i'm aware of is switching it of 6 tiles at the same time in a 2x3 size format. That way you can change the order of the tiles by going in ∞ shapes but also change the individual order of tiles by going in square shapes of 2x2. This is the best way that i'm aware of but it's still a major pain in the ass.

Oh and i have yet to find the reason this is a thing as well. Maybe just a fashion statement, or some kind of unfathomable logic will allow you to find the answer with this epic clue of mysteries. I don't know.

Oh my! As much as it's amusing to see you try to put meaning into every small detail, some things are just there for ambiance, I didn't expect this A+J thing to become a red herring.

I'm glad I deleted some of the functionalities of the stores, you guys would've killed me by now >.<

@Reiynii, I'm sorry to hear you're not feeling well and that the puzzle is being so frustrating. Get better soon <3
The glorious zymf puzzle is too hard it seems
The next levels won't have sth like this, no worries. T_T
