Talesworth Adventure: Quest for the Dragon's Hoard

2010-04-15 17:23:08 by jinxology

Feels good to get another game out there! I'm always struggling to find that nice balance of challenging and too easy. I always tend towards making games a little harder, perhaps because I love a challenge.

I've always loved the old D&D graph paper maps. I used to spend hours drawing out dungeons, shading them with colored pencils and loading them with diabolical traps. Since the map is secret while playing, I could never really share these creations with my friends. Someday, I thought, I'd make a game that is inspired by these glorious, tile-based maps.

I've been making games since I was 7. I've designed and talked about too many to count. I have a stack of notebooks filled with stats, sketches, damage tables and ideas. I'm very good at starting to make a game. I'm also very good at not finishing them. Despite this fact, since the inception of this passion, my failure to finish games has never mitigated my desire to make them. Every time I pick up that fresh notebook and a mechanical pencil, fresh ideas racing through my head, the passion consumes me and I feel like I'm 7 again.

Three years ago, I finished my first game and it was like the dam broke. Today, I launched my third game, and I couldn't be more stoked to see it live on the Interwebz. It's your mind against mine. As you wind your way through a labyrinth of puzzles, you can envision me cackling from the final chamber that houses the Talesworth Dragon. Please enjoy!

Oh, also, this isn't an official J!NX game or anything. This was a solo project I created in my free time.

Haha, well, technically, this isn't really a J!NX presence. This is just my personal NG page and the spot where I post the games I make.

Jinx has a Newgrounds that pretty cool.
It would be nice to see some new kind of Newgrounds designed tshirts from Jinx also :O

I was hoping it'd be like a minirpg or something, not a blasted puzzle game... decent though

The game is one of the most enjoyable I have had the pleasure of playing, these people don't know what they are talkin about. Thank you for sharing this.

Oh wow, not a single post since the announcement of the legendary first episode. Episode one was one of my all-time favorite Flash games, and I couldn't believe my eyes when the second one came out. I've never been so excited for a sequel, and I was not let down.
