Walkthroughs

My traffic from google searches has gone way up recently – why? Apparently because I mentioned the word “walkthrough” on this site.

Well, I’m convinced. The world needs an indie game walkthrough database.

I’ve installed MediaWiki to the site and I’m currently working on getting it all setup. If anyone would like to help me administrate it, leave a comment! I’m pretty new to Wikis and there’s a lot of stuff I want to do that I don’t know how to do yet.

Also, I’ve added a board to the forums for requests.

For anyone looking for an Art of Theft walkthrough, you can find a very good one here. I’ve also got a playthrough up on TIGSource which might be helpful.

The Art of Theft – Trilby Rank playthrough

trilbyBar maybe Trilby Ranking the Bonus Heist at some future date, I’ve finished my Art of Theft playthrough, and managed a Trilby Rank on each stage. Now I am truly a master thief. To deny it would be foolish!

I had fun with this little video playthrough! Actually I can’t remember when I last came across a game I so compulsively wanted to master.

To round the whole thing off, I posted the whole sequence of videos over at TIGSource, along with each level’s introductory text. Check it out here.

I’ve yet to play Yahtzee’s other games, but on the strength of this I think I’ll make some time over Christmas to work through them, starting with 5 Days a Stranger, probably. Or Fantabulous Wonderment, which (as a Star Control 2 fan) I really like the look of.

Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 7

Finally – the last mission! Enjoy.


Heist 7: 4 minutes and 50 seconds, $970 in loot, no tasers or alarms.

Here’s the description I posted over at YouTube:

This is it! The last mission. Hope you’ve enjoyed watching the videos so far!

I don’t mind saying that this actually took me quite a few tries. It took me an otherwise good attempt to realise that there was some loot in the “C” shelf in the end room, and there were a few attempts where I missed the par time by a couple of seconds. I really nailed it in this run though πŸ™‚

This video (like all the others I’ve done) includes the end cutscene, and also includes the final rank and closing notes.

I don’t know if I’ll bother with the bonus heist – after all, it’s just the same seven missions again, and I hear there’s a bug where the game forgets your RP and loot after mission three. At the very least, I won’t be doing it anytime soon.

Anyway, thanks for watching. Enjoy!

By the way, I have finished the bonus heist with the cream suit. The welding minigame is spectacular.

Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 6

“Shouldn’t you be working?”, you protest. Well, I am. Sorta. But I don’t want to jinx it. Could be very big. Would fix all my problems. Will let you know.

Anyway, here’s another of these very spoilerly Trilby rank levels from Art of Theft. Only one left. Unless you count the bonus heist! And I don’t.

The first time I played this level? I had no idea you could avoid the lazers by hugging the wall. Guess how long it took me.


Heist 6: 3 minutes and 57 seconds, $1,365 in loot, no tasers or alarms.

Here’s the description I posted over at YouTube: (man I’m in a bitchy mood today)

Well, so much for the whole “might be a while before I post another one” thing πŸ™‚

And now, after playing my favourite level, I move on to my least favourite level. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice change of pace the first time you play it, but it’s probably the hardest level in the game. And it features something way worse than that button mashing sequence from mission 4 – that inane addition problem at the start of the level which you have to repeat everytime you mess up. Calling it a puzzle wouldn’t be right – it’s just punishment for failing the mission. Punishment in the form of addition. Bad Yahtzee. Bad.

Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 5

Saying “spoilers” before I post another of these videos is probably redundant at this stage. Well, whatever. Spoilers!


Heist 5: 3 minutes and 37 seconds, $1,165 in loot, no tasers or alarms.

This one came out really really well, I think πŸ™‚ Didn’t make any glaring mistakes or do anything all that stupid.

Here’s the description I posted over at YouTube:

This one worked out quite well, I think – in fact, it’s probably the smoothest Trilby level I’ve posted so far! One little problem was reading the note about the safe – I collected all the loot before the note finished displaying, which stopped the explanation text from appearing and as a result, I didn’t know where to look for the first book! Not a serious problem, but a shame nonetheless.

I think this was probably my favourite level during my first playthrough of the game. I love the premise (the idea of Trilby raising a bit of cash to flee town), and the level has lots of neat little touches – like the bit with the caviar, and the jokes with the different books. I also loved the structure of the level – there are lots of little things to do in it, and you don’t necessarily have to do everything. In this video I’d actually finished the loot goal by the time I got the suitcase in the room with the TV, and if I’d been going for best time I could have finished the level there and then.

I keep forgetting that I have the sugar rush ability, heh.

Enjoy! It might be a few days before I have a chance to post the next one…

Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 4

Now that I’ve had a bit of a break, I thought I’d start posting the rest of these Trilby videos. I think I’m going to do all of them after all (even the bonus heist)!

By the way, Spoilers.


Heist 4: 2 minutes and 51 seconds, $845 in loot, no tasers or alarms.

Is it just me or does the cheering at the end sound more enthusiastic than usual? πŸ™‚

Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 3

Here we go again: Mission 3! Remember, spoilers. Don’t watch this if you haven’t already played it!


Heist 3: 2 minutes and 20 seconds, $1,005 in loot, no tasers or alarms.

Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 2

This is really quite an addictive game.

I made a Trilby rank video of the second mission to go with my first one. I’ll probably make a few more too. Be warned that I haven’t cut out the cutscene, so consider everything from here on to be a spoiler!


Heist 2: 56 Seconds, $900 in loot, no tasers or alarms.

After finishing the game with an “A” rank, I discovered that you get a new suit which makes you practically invisible. I also discovered that you can hug the walls to avoid the vertical lasers. So the game’s suddenly got a whole lot easier for me πŸ™‚

Trilby: The Art of Theft – Heist 1

aot

I just posted a big review of Yahtzee’s new game Trilby: The Art of Theft over at TIGSource. It basically says that it’s brilliant, that all games should be like it, etcetera, etcetera. I also posted an annoucement a few days ago at Indygamer Blogspot when I first came across it. It’s the first game I’ve come across while writing for TIGSource that I liked enough to cross post, heh. It’s really good – if you’re into indie games at all you should check it out – I’m adding it to my favourites list.

I made a video to demonstrate it, since it’s hard to get the atmosphere of this one across in screenshots.


Heist 1: 1 minute and 32 seconds, $635 in loot, no tasers or alarms.
