Work of Fiction is getting a gameplay overhaul.

posted in: Flash | 0

Until today, I had two programmers working on the code for Work of Fiction, but I’ve gotten sick of waiting around for them to respond to my emails (most notably, they haven’t said anything to me in about three weeks), so I’m just gonna do this shit myself. This also means I’ve got a solid opportunity to make the game a little more interesting to play.  Link-A-Pix is a very cool puzzle, but for most people, there’s no way it’d be interesting enough to do 25 times in a row, even if it’s gradually getting harder/more complex/etc over time.

Instead, I’m gonna try to make five abstract puzzle types and have five levels for each.  They’ll cycle, so you’ll play one level of each puzzle type, then play a harder level of each puzzle type, etc.  Five cycles total.

No change in the story, by the way.  Just gonna make it more fun.

  1. Sounds awesome.

    I mean, not the bit about those programmers (how/when were you supposed to pay them? Hopefully you have kept that to a minimum >.>), but this game sounds more exciting, for sure.

    Good luck, dude.

  2. Stick ’em in the eye 😛

  3. I support this move wholeheartedly.

  4. Mr. Piilonen,

    Greetings. I am a big fan, especially of The Company of Myself. It is still the most original thing I have ever played, a journey into the mind. The only thing that comes close is “Coma”.

    Okay, enough flattery. I heard you have some programmers who have bailed on you. I am actually in computer classes right now. What would I have to know/learn to help you program?
    Could you help you with other ideas? I am actually a video producer, so I have quite a background in various kinds of creativity. My youtube channel is emarley9

    Please get back to me as soon as you can. I only want to help and advance your vision.

    yay, new posts; I stopped coming everyday after a month :/

    so I see you tried a multi-person business approach… and it kindof crashed and burned….

    anyways, can’t wait to see them new games

  6. I can t wait to c it! 25 levels of puzzles.

  7. Frankly, I am thankful that those programmers ditched you as that is there reason that you decided to make improvements on “Work of Fiction” – so it was all for the good!! I love the game and from the improvements that are going to be made to it, I am sure that it is going to be more challenging and interesting and I am sure that there will be many more players who are going to start trying out and playing the newer version of 2, 5 levels of puzzles!!
