PostSubject: My Black Sect Remake   Thu Jun 21, 2012 3:21 pm


The people of Issegeac believe that their good fortune depends on the spellbook that has been in their village for over nine centuries. When the keeper of the text, your grandfather, is killed and the Grimoire stolen, the villagers ask your help. Now it is your task to find the Black Sect's hideout and return the spellbook to Issegeac.

Have you ever heard of Lankhor's Black Sect? Have you ever tried it?
Lankhor's Black Sect is a great game (on the AGS forums we agreed 'intriguing' is a better word though). It has however a few features that where normal in 1993 but aren't so popular today. The game is timed, has dead ends, only 5 save slots, 20+ action icons, no smart cursor and you can die.

Because I thought there was a nice game buried under all that, I've made a remake that eliminates all those elements that are likely to frustrate players today. I also added a few puzzles, changed the ones I didn't understand and made new music.

This remake features among other things:
- Timeflow based on player actions, so no dead ends
- Unlimited save slots (Well, I don't know that. More than 30 anyway)
- 2 action cursors
- Smart cursor that lights up over interactive areas
- Extra puzzles
- Changed puzzles to suit the new interface
- Updated hint system
- New sound and music

And kept from the original game:
- first person exploration
- Lankhor's art and animations (mostly)
- 31 locations to explore
- day and night cycle

So if you like to try it you can download the game from http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/Games.aspx/Detail/1578/Black_Sect_Remake

Hope you like it. Smile

You are to be commended HandsFree for finishing up this ambitious project. I downloaded it last week and played some and am already stuck ha ha ha. I saw that somebody made a walkthrough for your version of this game, so I will refer to it if I can't figure things out by the end of this weekend. Anyways, congrats!!

Edit: Forgot to add, but your built in hints are a good idea also Very Happy
