~ Wait about a minute for it to load ~

EDIT2: Please skip "Puzzle 002" by clicking on the "Click here to skip this game" button, as this puzzle is not working properly. You will still receive a coin regardless! Go watch the Walkthrough to see what the game was intented to be like here www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW0TiK…

EDIT1: You can now play the game and watch the cut scenes without it lagging :)
(The downside is that the sound quality isn't great) Also, I'll add a loading screen once I figure out how to do that...

You can watch a walkthrough of the game here www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW0TiK…

You can watch all the cut scenes apart form the game here apples-ishness.deviantart.com/…

==================================================

Project completed!

After spending a little more than 6 months on this game project, I am glad to say it’s finally completed.

I’m very grateful to receive feedback, but keep in mind that this is the first game I have ever created and that I am not a professional at coding or animation. Your feedback is still appreciated though :heart:

Please visit the official website here willowproject.withtank.com/ for more info.

FAQ
What was the project about?
It is the practical part of my B Tech degree which is about the motivational potentiality of story-infused (storyline with characters) interactive animations (essentially games) that help dyslexic children improve their literacy skills. Although it is based on my research report, it has not yet been tested.

Why is it so short? Why does the story stop short?
As I only had a year to do this project (both the theoretical and practical components included), I could only manage to create a “demo” version of a full game.
The idea is to get people (dyslexic children) interested in the story so that they would continue playing the game and so doing improve their literacy skills.

I might continue the story itself, but not the game. If I do continue the story it will be in a different format (such as a comic book).


==================================================

Created using Flash, After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. Took around 6 months to complete.

Yes, I'm thinking about it. But it might be in comic format or in a written format (no games).

Just to let you know, you can now skip Puzzle 002 and continue with the game as I can't figure out a way to fix the glitch at this time.

My brother :iconslushy-man: and his friend make online games , so I know all to well how hard computer coding is ( its almost like learning a new language, and it take a good amont of time to do ) OOOOOH , I loved the part where Willow & Gilbert were looking in to the distance and the evil-panther appeared behind them . I got as far as the part where it asks you to click on a object to open a puzzle .. mah computers is slow ( will def check out the link ) . I love that this is designed for kids with Dyslexia , The story elements are wonderful and really capture the reader . Awesome Job Dearie !!!!!!!!
