I’ve rereleased my IFComp 2020 game “The Knot”, now available in one convenient package! It can be downloaded at The Knot by thewatersupply!
What do a spaceship under attack, a lost tomb, and an alchemist’s laboratory have in common? Absolutely nothing! The three games in The Knot are completely unrelated to each other. There is no metapuzzle. The Knot never existed. Some problems cannot be solved. Some knots cannot be untied. But remember that no knot unties itself. You may need to seek help from an unusual place.
The Knot consists of the following games:
"Terror in the Immortal’s Atelier" by Gevelle Formicore
Chirlu the Immortal has menaced the Land of Teresten for too long! Locked inside the sorcerer’s atelier, inside the Ilfane, is the source of Chirlu’s power: The Knot, where all mana connects. Get ready, young adventurer – learning the magic to crack the Ilfane won’t be easy, but you can’t let The Knot fall into the wrong hands!
"Incident! Aliens in the Teresten!" by Tarquin Segundo

Get ready, young space cadet – surviving the Ilfane invasion won’t be easy, but you can’t let The Knot fall into the wrong hands!
"Adventures in the Tomb of Ilfane" by Willershin Rill
Millennia ago, the Autarch Ilfane used a magical artifact called The Knot to bring the Teresten people to an era of prosperity. Now, the Nazi archaeologist Doktor Chirlu seeks its power. Get ready, Professor Adventure – solving the riddles of the Tomb of Ilfane won’t be easy, but you can’t let The Knot fall into the wrong hands!
