Is adding a mystery worth it?

A mystery that you only find throguh careful observation of a game that the player will probably only play once?

Will you have fun adding it? If so, then yes. Some weirdo will appreciate it.

I'm most definately going to have fun making the msistery, but it'll be too bad if no one solves it. :-/

But all the more sweeter for you when someone finally does! :D

One of my games has a big secret that's cool (imo) and no one have yet to find it. It's there though, waiting!
You shouldn't avoid adding something like that just because it might be true that no one will solve it. I don't see any sense in that.

If it's important to the gameplay and it's like a... puzzle or a riddle that's too difficult to solve, that's a different question. Or if it's a major part of the story and the player really needs to understand it in order to appreciate the story, and you're just being too coy or vague about it, that's another.

But just for bonus stuff? Add in whatever seems good to you. You can always slightly increase how obvious or subtle it is during beta testing.

Yeah, that stuff is there for the weird people who like to explore and don't get bored of stuff. It makes it a lot more likely that people will get into your stuff, if they pick up on it, because humans fukken LOVE shit that engages their curiosity.

Not a guarantee, but definitely worth the effort if it's something you already like doing.

Thanks for the comments! They really encourage me to go forward with this. And of course, it's just an added bonus to the observant people. I'm looking forward to whenever someone does indeed solve it. Again, thank you all for your opinion on this topic!

Kloe!! Long time no see! Love the new avatar. And yeah, you're right, people love secrets, so I'll make sure to add one to almost all the games I make.

Hidden secrets, Kloe. I said hidden secrets. And here I almost thought you spoke my native language....

But yeah, secrets are fun to create, to discover, and to share. Good to hear you're going for it, Ozzy. (By the way, is this about Temple of Memories?)

Nope, this is about the Horror game I started for the Halloween event back in 2016. I only made a DEMO, but I'm determined to make it a whole game. (Have you played Temple of Memories?)

I haven't played Temple of Memories yet, but I plan to do so in the near future. Hopefully there are hidden secrets in there, too, haha!

I'm a little sad to hear the secret you were talking about here is going to be in a horror game, because I can't play those. But still, I hope plenty of people (you yourself included) will still enjoy it.

Seeing as this is my first attempt at horror, it will probably just be a bad attempt at making it scary haha. And yeah, there are some minor secrets in Temple of Memories, hope ya find them and tell me what ya think.
