Is it just me, or did clicking lead to last week's game?
Anyway, I managed to find the game, now to play it and get back and edit on how good the game is >.>
Well, the mentioned game for this week is here [http://dai5ychain.net/breath/].
EDIT: Also, just finished it.
I... certainly didn't expect the main character's friend to be... yeah, if you finish, you'll know as well...
An odd game. But a good game.

when I click the screenshot, I get the splunker game.

EDIT: I dont know if they fixed that screenshot, but I found the game. It was good, but I didnt really get it.

Drowning music...so terrifying.

I'd rather not relive it, thanks!

Edit: I just beat it in about 4 minutes...I think. Did I miss a life limit or something?

I remember those days fom the Sonic sound...were you tried desperatly to find that air pocket...

Kinda intresting concept, and instills a whole different kind of fear for sure!

Is there's something I need to download to be able to play this? Because it's not working for me... am I behind on a flash update?

EDIT: Oh, I was at the wrong game. Nevermind.

I didnt get it at all, im probably not "Arty" enough to get it.

Did it in about 4 minutes, was quite pointless, ive got at least 10 minutes out of every other alt escape before.

Thank you, was about to give Funk a stern talking to there.

I think I finished it.
Is his friend an octopus?
In fact, yes I get it after thinking over his last note.

:O

Yes indeed. I fixed the article, and we'll have Funk drawn and quartered.

I think I forgot to breath while doing that whole adventure. He liked to get stuck on cave walls and die which got really annoying. I did finish though! /gives gold star to self

That's a bit cruel. Can't you just have him sketched and halved? *rimshot* *is shot*

OT, I liked it, and it's good to see a game that tries to be 'arty[footnote]Incidentally, that is the name of all my artificer characters in Dungeon Crawl.[/footnote]' without forsaking gameplay. But I keep feeling I'm missing something. Are the messages supposed to be read backwards or something?

Also, I was pretty sure you'd have to play as the 'friend' later - you don't drawn but can't see except for where the fish are (so water sections would be easier but air sections would be much harder.

Okaay...an alright game. The mechanic was fairly good, but that was it. I'm not sure I got the ending though. Perhaps if all of the notes were compiled into one chronological list, then that would probably make sense.

Funk, you always find the most touching and heartfelt games. Keep it up, I love these "artsy" games.
