A short game prototype testing out a landmark-triangulation puzzle.

This was inspired by the wonderful mapping system in Miasmata, and started out a lot closer to that, but mutated into something a lot more rigid along the way. I'm not super happy with the way it ended up, and I came up with a different and better game idea just as I was finishing this up, but I thought I'd finish this up anyway and release it.

Played on Windows 10 in the itch app using mouse and keyboard and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

Got repeated errors pop up in the Development Console the first time I tried to move: "ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. Parameter name: index" 

In the Player.log file in my LocalLow\Studio Hunty\Compasscope folder:

 <RI> Initializing input.

All of the onscreen non-mouse button prompts were for the "W" key, but I was able to figure out the controls, connect the three landmarks and open the door. Using the telescope as a lever is a clever bit of gating, but the central triangulation puzzle basically solves itself at this point.

Thanks! I'll take a look at that error and get a new build up soon.


Fixed! The new version (1.1) should fix this bug! Thanks for finding it! :D
