“A Strange Creature” is the reworked winning entry from the Frankenstein's Wanderer contest, which was held back in June 2008.

There were plans on making a compilation hold, but they were abandoned, mostly because copying levels turned out to be a mess when there’s a custom monster involved. You can get all the other entries (and mine, if you want to see how it used to look) here.

I really like this hold, but a few rooms from the contest entry were really messy, and that’s why I decided to put down some effort to rework the hold. I think the quality it has now is definitely in line with my other stand-alone holds.

In the hold you can choose between two paths, one easier and one harder. And you’ll get two different stories depending on which path you take. I’ve chosen to mark the difficulty as I would the easier path because I think more people will try the hold that way. When rating the hold yourself, do whatever feels best for you.

Here’s some info about the wanderer:

Oh, I completely forgot to thank my beta testers.

They've all been great!

Mxvladi, Blondbeard, CuriousShyRabbit, Dischorran and Larrymurk, thank you :)

Good hold. Worth playing.

The easier path is much more manageable than one might expect from one of Rheb's holds - give it a shot.

The harder path, well, is what one might expect from one of Rheb's holds.

Looks like there's a problem with the length of scroll text.

That is very odd... The last line is displayed correctly for me.

I'd suggest you report this in bugs.
