Game runs on Vorple. If it doesn't load up on browser, it may be because I have not "uploaded it to the Internet" correctly. (The way they say it is so vague.) Creating a localhost server is also necessary to play it.

About the Story

Description: A house in the middle of the woods has being sitting here for years. Rumors have speculated that the person who once owned this house has mysteriously disappeared off the face of the earth and no one seems to remember anything about it at all. As an investigator, it's up to you to check and see what secrets lie within this treacherous home. Uncover the lost bits of somebody's past and find out what really happened here.

This game was initally a project for my New Media Perspectives class in college. I was never expecting to make a fully finished game out of it, but after a while I began it get interested in what I was making and expanded upon what I've started. Now after about 2 months of hard work I've been able to make my first ever text-based game. I hope you enjoy what I've made so far. If you ever happen to find a bug or any spelling/grammar error, please contact me at 0516jgl@gmail.com so that I can fix it ASAP. Thank you and enjoy! (P.S. - Anyone who sends me weird and stupid crap or whatever will be blocked and/or put into the black hole that is my spam folder.)

Interesting; needs work, July 6, 2018
In the current 1.0 version, the zip includes full source and a Vorple website AND a gblorb. I couldn't get the Vorple website to display images, even when I ran it on a localhost server, but the gblorb displayed images just fine, so just use that. It's in "Project New Media.materials/Release/The House of Mystery.gblorb".

The puzzles I encountered were interesting, but eventually I got stuck. The game doesn't offer a walkthrough or in-game hints. The game doesn't credit beta testers and has a lot of "You can't see any such thing" errors.

I look forward to a future version of this game.
