WILLA & ROTT
AN UNNATURAL TALE OF A GIRL AND HER DOG

Story:
Willa & Rott is the unnatural tale of a girl and her dog. Years ago, an orphan Willa drowns in a nearby lake. The only one to hear her cries of help was her faithful dog Rott. Neither one of them survived, but they will walk the Earth again with a purpose. Since their deaths, they have watched over another orphan like Willa. He is a boy named Toby, and Willa is always there with him.

It is only when Toby is put in mortal danger from the evil Macovius that she can return from the dead for a single night. Willa will have to fight her way through creatures of the night, priests, dream sprites and a zombie hunter named Christian in order to get into the large complex keep of Macovius. Once inside the keep, Will and Rott will need to solve unique puzzles and meet magical allies to help them along the way, before Macovius sacrifices Toby.

This is a story driven game, which means you get very little freedom. I made this game from a screenplay I wrote for this game. It is very short, it takes me an hour and I know where everything is. It might take the average person 90 - 120 minutes to complete the first time. It makes for a great time killer. The reason why it is so short is it was for a competition that needed to be 60 minutes or less of gameplay.

There are puzzles, random battles, boss battles and a few plot twists. Stealth missions, talking rats that give hints and a magical illusion named Bunny that offers you to fight what's behind door #1 or door #2.

Another game?

Last October the 30 page screenplay was turned into a play for one of our local theaters. The cerberus looked really good.

Over the year or two this game has been out I have gotten messages from people. One person said the game inspired his artwork. It was interesting and great to say the least.

Other people have said they'd love another game to be made if not to contribute to it. Yet MOST of the comments that I have received have been the game crashes at the start.

There was going to be a spinoff game that has a screenplay. It was going to be called Garlore & the Unheroes. The game was never made even if the screenplay exists. Now I am thinking about making another ghoulish game with Willa as the heroine and her trusty dog Rott of course.

Deadborn?

Great game, and I'm stuck on one of the puzzles in the Keep of Macovius. In the left wing I got the talking rat his or her cheese, but the right wing just where do I have to enter "enter, left, right, up, left, right, up" in order to unlock the door?
You follow the commands. You enter the room, you take the first left, you take the next right, you take the next path up.
It froze on me when willa is chasing the boy at town ... :/ it looks like a impressive story though
A lot of people had that error on one of the forums. I did my best to try to fix it but I never could. I think there were around 50 versions of this to try and fix that error.
Oh and as for the story, a local playhouse actually made this into a play. The cerberus was controlled by 4 people, with long sheets connecting the heads to the body. It was really nice.
How did the local playhouse know about it?
All of the downloads aren't working. It won't find the webpage.
When will you get the download back up again?
Can't download! Wanna play this!!
Take a look at the dates of earlier posts. The download link has been broken for over a year.
