The Escape v1.72c (p)

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
- This map was originally for the Solo mapmaking contest but it was revealed to me that the map must only be singleplayer, and I am not reworking my map to fit the standards.. so here it is.

The Escape!

by

Archangel_Tidusx


Story

A team of explorers has ventured inside an ancient ruins in search of treasure. Upon entering, the explorers triggered a trap, locking them all inside. The search for treasure soon became a search for food. Now supplies are dwindling and time is running out. The explorers must escape, or be lost forever.

Players: up to 10


Gameplay

You control a single hero and encounter several puzzles and riddles. All of them are able to be answered by a player, so this map can be played solo, or with a group of friends.
Puzzles may be as simple as pressing a switch, or typing an answer into chat. So far there are about 13 levels, with several riddles in each level. I guarentee at least an hour of gameplay - and that's at the minimal.
Please keep in mind that the map is NOT COMPLETE. The gameplay is stable, however the entire game is not finished. Let me repeat that.. THE GAMEPLAY IS STABLE, however the entire game is not finished. That means you can play all the way through the 13 levels without any problems, and the game will function as if it was a complete game. The 13th level will be completed and more riddles will be added when time permits.
- I don't think I updated the credits in the map yet, so I will post them here for the time being.

Tell me that there should be, my friends and 2 o'clock were never found out what should be and we really like your map, so that'll show that there should be.

Sometimes people can say more than you think they will say.
You're close with the heaven and hell, but it's not heaven, nor is it hell.
Everyone in the room has something in common (apart from the judge perhaps :/).
Try to find out what and why they are there (perhaps you need some dictionary as well).


I would die for a faster movement speed in some levels though (in one specific level, I tihnk you know which one I'm talking about).
And the levels aren't really ascending in difficulty, but that's really something minor and personal (is there even a way to lose the riddle with the gates? o_O - well, I know there is, but you'd have to do your best to NOT win that level).

I'll just approve this, it's been on pending for too long... riddle games are always a good way to spend your time on when you haven't got anything better to do.

Hi, what did you change in the upload ? ^^

I had already played you map and i enjoyed it, HOWEVER, i find that riddles are too hard and you haven't any hint to help you. Maybe you could add hint that appears with time when stucked. Because it's really easy to give up when you can't find.

By the way, me too i'm stucked at the warchief part ^^

Like redfal, I'm also having problems with the second riddle. You said in a post for him, that a hint would appear. Where? I've been stirring into the screen for over 10 minutes straight. Thx anyway, <3 the map! :D

Warchief Hints: (I think this was the warchief riddle, at least I hope it is :p)

It is a physical object which you can literally buy, don't think outside the box here.



"People use it, but don't like using it" is actually incorrect... at least, I don't really think it makes a lot of sense.
It should be more like "People who use it don't realize they're using it", or something along those lines.



The one who buys it is not the one who uses it.

I hope that helped you at least a little :D

Archangel, if you don't want these hints here, just say so and I'll remove them.

If you're talking about the paragraph, then I guess I was lucky that I've played a lot of riddle games before and this is a pretty well-known paragraph :p

You really need to look at the paragraph, it is not some kind of trick or anything, there IS something definitely wrong with it.
Look at all words, all letters, something is missing in the paragraph... but what? :D


If it's about the sequence:


You need to look at how many numbers there are in each line.
As you see there is 1x 1 in "1" and 2x 1 in "11". Edit: it's not a multiplication sign :p it just means the amount xD
Based on that you should be able to find it.


If it's the nickel-riddle, I won't tell anything, there's a wooden sign and the riddle is really easy =.=

Edit: since this user just joined and cannot send any messages yet:

Thanks for all the help Ap0calypse. I still haven't solved it though, lol. I am very good at riddle games like this but paragraphs ain't really my strength >.< Really appreciate your time and effort put in this. I understand if you don't reply to this, as I may seem as a total idiot by now :p Goodbye for now! ^^
 
Ap0calypse - much thanks for keeping up with this thread, I will even include some rep for you. The hints are actualy very helpful and not too revealing so it is completely acceptable.
As for the rest of you I will try to answer the questions to the best of my ability.

If by the second riddle you mean the footman one, a hint will appear in the room far to the left at the top. Please keep in mind I haven't touched this map for some time now lol.

I regret to inforrm you that the map probably won't see much updating because I have simply just lost a lot motivation. One puzzle in particular (the final one) has just taken every bit of drive I had to complete and I just can't think of anything interesting lol.

And for the warchief riddle, there is actually a hint inside the room he is standing in.. I believe.. or maybe I'm thinking of another one.

I do know there is one instance of the object within the map and you will encounter it before you reach the warchief.

But man.. if you keep this up, I may just decide to get back into the map.

Oh and about the door one, It was a lot harder of a puzzle where I found it, just not much room to make it larger lol. The difficulty of the riddles does actually vary too; meaning the first riddle isn't necessarily the easiest. I think some of the hardest ones were at the footmen.

For the number sequence riddle,i tried every possible combination of 6 numbers consisting of 1 and 2 and none was right >.<

EDIT: I didn't notice hint lol,but after i read it,it was really easy :D

EDIT: I Found the object in maze,but can't clink on it because it's too tiny :/

Try using your insert and delete keys to rotate the camera. I was able to select it. :)


And on a side note, I am ediiting the map today. Keep up the energy!

If you had checked the quest log, you would've known that you should use "-" in front of all your answers.
If it still didn't work, then you were just wrong.

Also i've noticed that when you right click Interact ability,you get weirdo tooltips in it,sometimes some random letters or something similar to paths to files.
This as well, and unfortunately I cannot understand it either :p
 
Liked the map, but when i get to the starving prisioner it seems like there isnt anything much to do. you stopped there?

Yeah, basically. I worked on a little bit but the next part is more of a physical riddle and its a pain in the ass. If I regain the motivation, I will finish it. I only really got a little bit to go.

I just cant find out something with those hints theres still multiple stuff which fit at it

And it wouldn't be much of a "riddle" map if we told you exactly what fit... If you want an "answer" map, then search for it on hive. Don't spam this thread with messages complaining that we aren't beating the game for you.

Its kinda old but the answer is Purgatory. In the Christian mythology, Purgatory is a place where you are cleansed before entering Heaven which is in between Heaven and Hell.
