Hidden Hands: Vitalic Fever 20/07/2019

This was a good mission. I love mansion missions.

The upper floors were real hard to navigate because of the lights, the guards, and the narrow hallways. Plus, it was kind of hard even getting into the place. Still, overall I liked the mission a lot.

I had a few issues though.

I couldn't see the gold in my inventory at all. When I pressed N for the next item, it showed empty, as if I hadn't pressed it. Because I couldn't see it, I had no idea how much loot I'd gathered, or if I had the gems needed for one of the objectives. Second, was the attic supposed to be pitch black? Couldn't see a thing until I found the lantern in the basement, and then had to backtrack. Just wondering... Not really an issue, just puzzled if my game was broken...

The story's fascinating. I expected zombies because of the nature of the vitalic stuff, but there was just the one. By the way, is there a way to, um, save or free it? End its miserable existence as a captive?

Yes, the pitch black attic was a design decision and there are actually two ways to illuminate it. Apparently, you missed the second possibility, which I did not include deliberately in the first place. :) 

As for the zombie, you should not worry; I looked after him the other day and he is still happy with all the mild vapours that are to increase his body temperature. Although, things might change once the experiments move on! :)

Anyways, thanks for playing and your kind words!

Finished this up last night and enjoyed it for the most part. 

Spoiler

I was a bit lost after going through most of the house except upper floor and not finding a code for the upper door (nor a key to the telescope room lol) I had to come here for some help. My bad I should of looked left when I looked out that window - oops. And I must say, my arachnophobe self took great pleasure in disposing of the spiders in the basement once I got passed freaking out cause my arrows wouldn't kill them. Very clever! lol. One other thing, I wish you had named Gilbert instead of "body". By the time I got to that point I couldn't remember what the person I was looking for looked like lol - again my bad :)

Thanks again for all your hard work and look forward to more.

Wind would refer to the windchimes outside the bar, underneath it on the ground by the post.

Hope that helps. Happy Taffing!

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
