I added leaderboards to the bottom of the game. They update daily, at midnight EST, the same time the "new day" rollover happens. :)

The double-day advancement bug has been fixed for those who it affected. You've been refunded your days. :D

I'm still at the end of day 4. I never got day 2.

@Taz: I've backed you up one day. :)

Also, I fixed a (rather embarrassing) bug that would sometimes cause fast-forwards to not be delivered. Oops. If you were affected, you have your fast-forwards now. :D

I simplified this forum. It wasn't used as much as I expected it would. Turns out everyone wants to solve the adventures by themselves. Well... good luck on that. ;)

Well I mean, it takes actually forever to try and brute-force the solution, given the nature of this game. I have only just recently finished trying every location option on my current story segment and seem to be stuck with very few leads to work off of.

One thing I've found is that there are definitely events that only happen on certain days. For instance, while playing as Sebastian, I found that if you go to the programming class in Knobbler Hall on a Hump Day, you'll just find a note that says Professor Noel is out of the office on Hump Days. If you go on a different day, you will be able to meet him. (I don't know whether the same class is available to go to as Strawberry, though.)

What I'm worried about is the opposite: cases where you have to go to a place on one specific day to see an event, because there doesn't seem to be a clear way to tell whether you've missed an event in a place that you've been to, or even if you do see a day-specific event, that the day when you went there was important. And I'm only on Day 12 so far; there could easily be events like a school holiday or a natural disaster that happen after a certain number of days and change which scenes you have the opportunity to get.

Between this and Seppel's comment, I think this game might be balanced (as far as the concept of balance even applies to a game that doesn't really have any statistics in it) around the assumption that we should have to pool information as a community to be able to solve the puzzles effectively.

I noticed there was something weird going on with scoring, so I fixed the scoring algorithm.

The maximum score for each adventure is 1000, but you have to do a series of incredibly bizarre moves to reach 1000. So just enjoy the games! :D

I suspect the forum will get busier as more people hit the mid-point of the game, where progression gets more difficult.

We have our first winner, so I've added four more leaderboards:

• Best Wins (highest scores)

• Fastest Wins (least number of days used)

• Most Wins (Number of times you've completed each adventure)

• First Wins (The first 5 people to complete each adventure)


Please note that First Wins is not automatically updated. Since it'll eventually be a permanent list, please send me a PM when you've completed the adventure so I can add you to that list. :3

There were two (embarrassing) errors in scoring Sebastian's adventure. You should see your score increase between 1 and 88 points tomorrow!

I also made a slight change to events in both adventures so it's not as insanely hard to reach 1000 points in either adventure.

A game-breaking bug has been discovered. It can be triggered by doing a surprisingly specific sequence of events that is highly unlikely, but still embarrassing that I didn't catch it. XD

The bug affected one player, whose game has been fixed.

Very minor new feature: If you've unlocked the endgame of your adventure, there will be a heart next to your name on the current leaderboards! e.g. ❤ Seppel

So if your name doesn't have a heart next to it, you still have more adventuring to do! (Yes, that's currently everyone. But at least you'll know when you've reached the end!)

EDIT: Added a star to signify that you've unlocked the endgame but are missing something in order to finish the adventure. e.g. ☆ Seppel
