What is this?
Demensitis is a text-based adventure game wherein you follow the plot as a teenager who has been given the task of finding a cure to a deadly disease that threatens to engulf humanity. This isn't like normal text-based games where there is one right answer to everything and you simply sit in the background and watch the plot flow. You decide what happens. You choose which characters you want to befriend and which ones you prefer dead. You accumulate your own inventory and decide which items are best used in battle.
•Text-based prompts, some with comical answers that will have amusing results.
•An inventory system, from which you can use items at any point, adding variety to the game.
•A turn-based battle system.
•An achievement system, featuring 80 achievements of varying difficulty.
Demensitis has now been officially released. No major features will be added in the foreseeable future, but I will still be monitoring this topic and fixing any bugs that are reported to me.
•The game does open in full screen. It does not change your screen resolution. If you prefer to play it in windowed mode, press F4.
•The game was compiled in Game Maker 8.1 and is therefore compatible with both Windows Vista and Windows 7. I have not tested the game on Windows 8.
•The game saves automatically at predefined points. It tells you when it does so. You may not save your game at other points.
•In newer releases, the game files are managed by the game itself in your AppData folder. If you have a file somewhere else on your computer from a previous version, use the "Import File" function to copy it into AppData.
•During battle, you type the item you wish to use and press ENTER to attack with it (the game explains this). If you wish to use the same item as last turn, simply press the UP ARROW key (the game does not explain this).
•If you prefer the white-on-black color scheme to the default, run the game with the command line parameter "-inverted" (without quotes), and it will open with the inverted color scheme.
•If you are on a public or school computer and do not wish to save your game to the AppData folder, run the game with the command line parameter "-portable", and it will use the old file save/load system and ask you where you want to save.
•It is not possible to earn every achievement in one game file. The achievements are saved with your user, not your file, so you can play through the game multiple times to clear any achievements you miss the first time.
