Update:
A Daily Deviation? :wow:


I never expected this could happen to me so suddenly! This is awesome! :D What else can I say but... thank you - I've been enjoying reading all your kind comments. :aww:

And remember, I'm just one of the people who helped make this game, along with Pat (~knivel) and Teo. So think of them when you're appreciating the game. ;) Thanks again!


Read the love letter without getting caught! Can you find your true love before 2nd period?

Move with the mouse. Click and hold to read the letter. Don't get caught!

(you can also use the arrow keys and space bar or WASD and enter instead)

I made this game with the artist Pat Kemp (~knivel) and the composer Teo Acosta. Pat came up with the concept and story and level design, and I did the programming and designed the details of the student AI and such. Made with Flixel! :heart:

The Love Letter was originally our entry for the Ludum Dare 22 game jam in December. People seemed to like it, so we polished up the game for Valentine's Day and kept going from there. ;)

You can play it on my site without ads: [link]

You can play it on Kongregate with scores and a badge: [link]

You can play it on Newgrounds with ten medals to unlock: [link]

You can even get the full source code on GitHub: [link]

We've been really blown away by the hugely positive response that this game has elicited. :D Notch tweeted it, Egoraptor shared it, Jay is Games reviewed it, both Newgrounds and Kongregate have featured it on their front page, and now a bunch of sites are picking it up.

For some explanations and background info, read these threads:
- on my blog: [link]
- on the notgames blog: [link]
- on the Ludum Dare blog: [link]
- on the TIGSource forums: [link]

Hope you like it! :)
