Leraux 1.07

Submitted by Softmints
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Features:
* A challenging single-player puzzle-adventure game, including a wide variety of original puzzles.
* Around 2-3 hours of gameplay (and dialogue).
* Developed plot and characters.
* Custom soundtrack!


Shortfalls:
* Only about 60% of the intended content was implemented (the game still has proper endings and such, but there's a notable gap in continuity).
* Difficulty might be a bit much for some people, but feel free to PM me if you're stuck.
* It has a large filesize, which might be a problem if you have a bad connection.
* Has some lingering bugs; but it's possible to play through. Let me know if you find any and I'll fix them asap.


Notes:
Leraux was originally submitted to the Hive's Solo Mapping Competition #3 in February, a contest which was abandoned after long delays and annoyances (actually, the results came out the day after I submitted this!). I was under a lot of time pressure while making it (there having been a deadline), so not all of my ideas could be included in the game. I decided to polish it up a bit and release it properly to the general public, and I hope some of you will enjoy playing as much as I enjoyed making it.

Credits are displayed at the end of the map (they contain spoilers). I am not sure if I will ever add the missing scenes, but I don't get your hopes up.


Please do not post spoilers/solutions in this topic!
You can PM me directly if you have any concerns or questions.

    After playing threw it a bit more there are clues everywhere, you need to look closely at everything to find them.

    Great map, though it moves a little slow at times and can be frustrating. In particular, the rune puzzle is VERY tedious. I'm a bit lost as to what to do now, I've got five tiles and have solved the rune puzzle but there doesn't seem to be another puzzle to get a sixth tile and the rune puzzle didn't open anything that I can see.

    Some tips
    seems like everyone got the same problem with the last tile...
    its something to be changed the author said at the moment it seems that one have to focus on the wrong thing, the important part is to find the tiles not what you think :)

    i used every item i had on every object to get hints, and there is one for the last tile (but not very obvious...) hmm u shouldnt post solutions so i give some general hints:
    - think about how often you used the items you have to figure out what could be used next
    - are there objects that didnt do anything until now?
    - don't only look for things that are hidden, try the obvious things
    - what is the main goal? sometimes the first impression can be wrong...
    - search your enviroment what happend after doing something, e.g. pulling switches (dont do everything at once, do it step for step to understand what each object is doing)

    when you follow those hints you could find the last tile :)


    edit:
    bug lvl3

    the conversation with the spirit is bugged if you try to abort speech ("nevermind" or something like this), he says: as you wish and jumps back to where you were before >.<

    another thing with it, pls check if the conversation is in the right order, i really got confused at the first part, but could be my mistake...

    Actually, I realized what I was missing. I'd completely forgotten about it because it's the first thing the game shows you when you get into that room. Unfortunately, I'm stuck again there. I know I need the egg, I just don't know WHAT to do with it. I've used every item I have left on everything, nothing seems to work.

    EDIT: I got it. Oh yeah, i tried everything on everything alright. I just didn't try everything on NOTHING. Didn't even realize I could do that at first.

    Might contain a hint
    Daaamn, that first riddle just crushed me. Probably thinking too deeply into it. I guess thats what the first hint implied. A second hint would be much appreciated. :[

    A map that makes you think?

    This map is good, I like them :). This RPG is a different with the others. The main character only solves puzzle to archieve his goals and that's all, with some fun and logic. That's the map I need. :) (anyway can you post a FAQ for us to play in ease plz :-")

    Hi! Thank you for the great map, i'm really enjoying it.
    However, there are some bugs i found :
    -The game crashed once when i activated the very last level of the first part of the game (right before a cinematic).
    -When you drop your lantern, take it back and get away, the light still exists where you droped the lantern.
    -One item that is "linked" to the water could be stucked so you cannot get the tile... maybe there is a way to get it back but not sure?
    -If you save and load during the runes riddle, it won't work

    And now a terrible bug for me :(
    I did the rune thing, i have a cinematic where runes disapear and then... the cinematic mode doesnt turn off and i'm stucked. Tried several time but still stucked...
