Props for creativity :) I'm a huge fan of incorporating audio into games in creative ways.
One By One: A Single Pixel Adventure
One By One is a TEXT ADVENTURE with only ONE PIXEL. Your goal is to SEEK THE CROWN. Listen for audio cues and type simple commands to interact. HEADPHONES are highly recommended. The downloadable version features enhanced audio.
- Commands are typically one or two words. Examples: GET KEY or GIVE SWORD.
- To navigate, type NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, or WEST. You can also type OPEN DOOR if one exists.
- Typing should make the screen flash. If not, click inside the window.
- You do not need to TALK, LOOK, or ATTACK in this game.
- To get started, type LIGHT FIRE then GET KEY.
Scroll down for a map and walkthrough if you get stuck.
You drop a bundle of wood and strike a match.
LIGHT a FIRE and notice the shining object.
Try moving NORTH and notice the door is locked.
