I’m really loving this game, and I love that little OneBoyBit.exe game you added, I actually spent a while trying to beat Mike’s high score rather than actually trying to solve the thing haha. Anyway, I’m kinda stuck on the blog password part. The hint is “The land where the barbarians live.” so I entered in “Ancient Greece,” “ancientgreece,” “greece,” and a couple of other countries and I can’t find out what’s the password. Is there a clue about it in the diary or somewhere else?

Hey! So glad you liked it! Made Mikes highscore stupid high, so you wouldn’t accidentally beat it and erase his name! Kind of a dumb fix to a problem, now that I think about it. 

Yes, exactly! He writes about something in the diary, that he will make a post about online. If you find it, you’ll find the password to the Blog. Let me know if you need ant help!

Thank you :)

UPDATE: Just finished it and ended it with the music track still playing and now I’m kinda creeped out. But this is a really good game tho, I would rate it 10/10.

Would love to check this out but currently having troubles figuring out how to maximize the screen. Any options in the future to allow a fullscreen mode? Currently using a 4k monitor and any options to make apps bigger is still quite small to be able to navigate through the game.

how do I 'LOAD ."DIARY".'?

stuck here

Hi! Open cmd.exe and type the command LOAD *”DIARY”*. The handwriting isn’t the best, so it’s easy to mistake the asterisk for a period. 

thanks!

Really admire the aesthetic of this game, love the retro feel and uncanny nostalgic feeling it brings. Great work with it!

Hey :D 

I don't know if your game is finished yet ;-) but should I be able to find the diary somehow?

Really like how the game feels so far.

Hey!

It is finished! Try to find his post online by doing a Google search. He mentions a word in capital letters in his diary that might yield in some results. I know it’s a bit tricky, I’m trying to come up with a hint system. Thanks for playing, let me know if you need any help! I’ll add a spoiler below! 👇🏻 


SPOILER: search for winlose95 on google!
