Sweet! :^^:

I've already played, but I'm interested in checking out how you've made it. :)

Played a little bit of it and it's good so fare. I always liked silhouette graphic style.

Fun game so far.  I like that I have to use actual maps the way a real person would, and that my inventory isn't infinite.  It adds a level of management that I feel most people detest in games, and can go very wrong, but is done well here.

I also like the teleportation boxes (Ender Chests :P)  hidden around the map, and the way you need to interact with them in order to deliver certain items.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed managing your items, but your inventory actually is infinite; it scrolls if you fill the box.

Really?  That's strange.  I figured I wouldn't even need an infinite inventory.

Actually, I wonder what the least number of total simultaneous items in the inventory it's possible to complete the game with. It'd make a (probably a bit annoying) challenge.

This struck me as odd too when I first played the game...

Hmm... Somehow I doubt that that would be very interesting, because all the movement-enhancing items are items you cannot un-equip. There are eight of them.

All-right, all-right, I'll try and tell you how good it went.
Rules I'm going to use:
-Finish the story except going into Fulcanelli's house.
-Drop all unneeded items in Home.
-Travel to Fulcanelli's house from there.

EDIT: Made it. This challenge is possible with only three items.

Lol, I just opened up jayisgames, saw the pictures of The Great Work and thought: "Lame, someone made a KU clone".

Nifflas, is this the new trend? Can we be expecting a game every month from your hand?  8D

Actually, this game has been ready for months, but Nifflas was waiting for the documentary to be ready before releasing it.
I'd guess this means no, we'll probably not have a new game every month from now on... :P

Months is a bit of an understatement... the game has been roughly complete since mid-2011!
