Release 5 of PataNoir is now in open beta. This release includes an interactive tutorial, and a simplified keyword parser interface. Feedback can be sent to the e-mail in the About menu.
I just thought I’d bump this now that the Comp is over. I would love to get some feedback on my parser optimizations .
I played (and loved) PataNoir, and left a review of the 5th release.
I think the game is ready for prime-time! The early puzzles were (at times) a little frustrating, or shoehorned feeling, but they were intended to be a little bit tutorial, right?
Everything after the confrontation felt incredibly polished and smooth. Your game made me feel very, very smart & pleased with myself!
Thanks for the kind words, streever . I’ve uploaded the game to the archive, and updated IFDB.
If you have any suggestions on how to improve the game, you can pm them to me, or send a mail to the address in the about menu.
