Thoughts on Imprisoned?


#1

It was a fun game overall, first time i played i died of exhaustion which was a bit surprising. How come the user-contributed games aren’t posted on the blog?


#2

I loved it. It is short, but highly dynamic depending on your choices, and entertaining.


#3

I’m happy to see my game released (and the opinions above so positive, thanks). Comments (not only as nice as those) are most welcome. The more opinions, the more motivated I can be to make another, maybe better, game. :slight_smile:

ps. Please forgive me any bugs, errors, spelling/grammar problems you’ll face.

I’m just starting, and I peeked at the Attributes… ooo, sanity meter! I love sanity meters!

Looks promising.

Enjoying it so far, ran into a little glitchy thing. I just went to sleep after being thrown in the cell: You have slept for 5 hours. DEBUG *set heal 10 Something woke you up.

Shouldn’t affect gameplay, but I thought you might want to know.


#5

Fun so far, though with that many endings, it seems like the earlier mostly blind choices affect you quite a bit. I also got the set heal glitch, here are my stats in case that helps you track it down.

Your final stats:

Endurance: 32%
Reflex: 30%
Intelligence: 96%
Look: 85%
Charisma: 42%
Will: 52%
Wisdom: 93%
Luck: 82%
Sanity: 1%
Health: 0%

I was a female elf with mostly steel armor.

My adventure seems to end prematurely every time. I might say 7 days left or something but then the game ends already anyway. Bit confused about that!
I also have the health bug when resting, it only happens if I have the ability to know the time.

Besides those two things I like it, so far. Like I said my game seems to end prematurely every time.
I do like the humor of the commentator though, loving that.


#7

This ‘health bug’ should be corrected soon. And the game shouldn’t end without reason, but if it does… well, just try again. There’s a lot of possibilities there :wink: (I’m waiting for the first person to reach every single ending)


#8

So far, ive found the dying of exhaustion, the freed after a few days, the one where the rat turns human, and that’s about it.


#9

That’s about 17% of all endings (not including a hidden one, which is almost impossible to reach) :]


#10

I like the multiple endings - always a good idea to have lots as it increases replayability.

I noticed a minor spelling error at ending 9 - it should say “pierces”, not “pierce”.


#11

Think you could tell me how to open the dang gate? Been trying everything. Probably really easy and the answer is right under my nose…


#12

I can’t tell it’s easy, but it’s quite simple, you just need a proper key. :wink: Or something similar :wink:


#13

I liked it but I noticed the more honest you are the better things turn out.


#14

The first play through for me ended with me dying from exhaustion. I thought that was kind of funny… no sleep= no life


#15

And a minor grammar error:
After you pick an option for strength as a guy that involves picking up a horse, there is a response saying,“I bet he were!”. I think you meant, “I bet he was!”.

*Edit*

And:
“You were hit but you hasn’t yet told your last word.” Instead of “hasn’t”, do you mean “hadn’t”? Sorry if this seems a bit… (can’t remember the right word at the moment…pretentious?) but grammar errors are kind of annoy me… :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

I got a funny ending. I played a female elf thief and got an ending were I was found innocent. When asked if I knew who framed me I answered No because I hadn’t found any of the back story in the game, and the game then proceeded to tell me how “No” was my greatest enemy.


#17

Again, big thanks for the comments, downloads, reviews etc. Again… I’m sorry, very sorry for grammar (I’m from Poland). Sorry for bugs (the game overwhelmed me). Anyway, I think I’ll try to make another game, maybe I’ll even find a way to solve my grammar problems (I have already some ideas)…


#18

i got an ending similar to Trickster’s.
It was a fun game, though could’ve been a lot better. I’m anticipating the creator’s next game(s)! :slight_smile:
Quite a few grammar/spelling errors, but i’m not the kind who gets easily annoyed by those. English is my second language, too.

[Spoiler]

After a while it wasn’t very entertaining to see the same text when I tried the same thing over and over again to see if I can figure something out. I’m referring to examining the engraving in the wall, (which very slowly showed some results, but couldn’t figure it out because i was freed :o ), and talking to the guy in the other cell, which always seemed to yield no results, me having to say in what we were talking about.

I couldn’t feel the torture part too well, but anyway, when someone is tortured, it’s not really about choice after all.


#19

I keep trying to use the portal but it just won’t let me
Anyone know how to open it??? Like what stats do I need???


#20

keep talking to that sir dude, he’ll tell you, you need rat blood to open the portal. Lure the rat with your food and bam kill it and portals open.
