At last completed this brilliant adventure, one of the best I have ever tried. Superb in all aspects, and, as an animal lover and owning 9 cats, I particulary enjoyed Shadow :) Just one small note, if you go to save Shadow without the knife, you get stuck on that room... Review soon at the blog, bu...

Re: Unhallowed - a spooky text adventure for Halloween

Re: Unhallowed - a spooky text adventure for Halloween

I just posted a quick update (1.01) which fixes a few typos and adds some new messages based on difficulties I saw people having with a few of the puzzles. There is also an updated HTML version which uses some of the more advanced features of Adventuron! More details here: https://blerkotron.itch.io...

Re: Unhallowed - a spooky text adventure for Halloween

I've seen another DivMMC user complaining of the same thing, but I'm not sure why this would be because I'm not familiar with the hardware.

I managed to spill some of the monster's blood on the floor, but I cannot pick it up. I tried with the bottle but I cannot make any use of it.

Something from one of the kitchens will help you here. You may have seen it already but had no use for it until now.
