My January contest entry.

Have you escaped from The Crimson Room and solved the mystery of the Viridian Room? Well, now you can try the Cerulean Room!

So that there would be something to compare for high score purposes, I've included a timer that gives you 10,000 moves to complete the room. This is very generous, so I highly recommend that for your first playthrough you just explore until you find all the necessary bits and pieces to complete your escape, post your score ;) and then go back and try to optimise it. Good luck!

I loved the Crimson Room and the Viridian Room, both awesome puzzles. I can't wait to try this one.

Interesting.

I'm playing this as someone who played through the first half of Tendry's Tale, got bored, and hasn't touched the RPG engine again. It looks like what you can do is quite impressive..

Bug?

Again, apologies if this is something that I should have known if I had played with the RPG more, but:

puzzle. That got me stumped. I've tried almost everything (the other things I haven't probably have the solution but I don't know what they are). Still, good work. Maybe I'm just too tired.

That works :thumbsup I've uploaded a fixed version; both the speed and invisibility potions can now be taken without your previous accessory vaporising.

Why is the Contest deadline a concern for anything on Architecture?

Because of the unusual format of this contest. Most participants did not build holds, so there will be no compilation, but I chose to build a hold. So I'm putting my entry on Architecture so that it can be submitted to Holds afterwards (after I've taken time to make further amendments, of course).

edit 1: I discovered you needed to use the cmd so I got a little further. You should add that info for the players who are not as familar with the game.

edit 2: I looked at the blocks hint and it didn't help :?

TripleM: do you know the properties of invisibility potion? Both properties?

Techant: you need to combine two hints. The other is in the newspaper cutting.

Okay, nevermind. The answers to my two questions are yes, it exists and no, it's important.

Techant: there are two ways to complete the hold from where you are now, a quicker way that scores less and a more complicated way that scores more.
