Hmm.. 
So, what has iplaydink been up to lately? Well, I've been working on my epic, Dink's revenge, which is going great, but also Agatha Smallwoods Gold edition which will be released soon!

The new version will feature one secret isle with a rather big sub quest for you to enjoy!

What's unique with this is that it will be in the format of a competition, the first one to get the code at the end of the quest and post it here at the dink network will win, and in the next version I will add that persons name at the end of the quest. Something like:

"The first one in the world to solve this was <Name of that person>, he/she is awesome."

Anyway, here's a sneak peek.

It will be here by the next weekend.

Looks good, are there any new features or an added storyline?
That inkpot and book picture looks awesome

Hmm.. 
There are 63 new frames of new bmp graphics so far in one new subquest. It's not part of the storyline. The quest will be played on 18 new screens, which may sound little but the puzzles are quite hard.

Either that, or the fastest to read through as many DinkC scripts as it takes to find said code. Or work it out.
Good fight Dinkers, magicman wins.

Haha! Elimentary, my dear ExDeath! Regardless, this is a fantastic idea, IPD, and judging by the rate at which you're progressing, it shan't be long before you're immortalized in TDN Hall of Fame.

Hmm.. 
Well the code will not only be .d, but the code will also never be written in text, it's a printed global based on enviormental circomstances which will make it almost impossible to cheat even if you have a ,d to .c converter.

@Schnapper: Haha, you are too kind! I doubt I will be one of the ones remembered in 10 years but we'll just have to see!

No, not a d-mod this time, possibly a midi pack. But I've been eager to start working on a simple romp, yet I've got fewer than zero ideas as to where to begin, even.

I object 
Is that:

A) Because we set unrealistically high targets.
or
B) Because we can't even get mundane things done that "normal" people can.
or
C) Because we're plain evil.

Who I really look forward to the gold edition. I enjoyed the normal edition and by the sound of it I'm going to enjoy the gold edition even more I love puzzles . Just take your time to finish it I'm sure it is worth waiting a little longer.

And still working on my first D-MOD (gonna take a while to finish due to reason A) I know it takes time to make things good.

Since my last post I haven't done anything (school and my newly developed obsession for Blender took all my time) until today! Today I worked actively for about three hours and made significant progress!

I estimate that the work left can be completed in about five hours of work, I'll just have to take time and try not to get distracted.

We wait anxiously for another release by Iplaydink.Though the unfairness is huge. What if someone downloads the file before us and finds the code first? It will be nice if there's a fixed hour after which we can download. We're not here all the time, you see. Don't be offended, I'm just saying.

It can never be fair, but maybe I can convince a staff member to accept it at an specific time which could be published two days before or something so everybody is aware it's coming, even than some might sleep and some might work that specific hour.

No, I think it's better to just not announce when it will be uploaded. That way at least there's also the random effect for those with a day/night advantage. And it might draw more people to the DN! ... Maybe not but still Just let it upload when it's done and then wait for the results Should be interesting.

More than one year ago I said this was gonna be finished in one week.

Was it finished one week later? Of course not! I'm a dinker, we all make tons of promises we are too lazy to keep!

What happened was that I got stuck on some complicated code and just forgot about it, until now.

The last weeks I've been thinking about making another D-Mod, and I've thought of a story, but before I start working on it I'm going to finish this, as a practice. I want to get used to DinkC again before I start on my dmod.

So the last three night I've been working on this again, and I solved the problem I was stuck on (brilliantly, I have to say), I've gotten so much better at coding the last year!

So some new info about the game:

The update will not contain any new graphics, except the ones I made one year ago (as seen in the screenshots), I'm just going to focus on actually getting this thing done

I will list the 3 best people, the ones that beat the game first. To prove that you've solved it you need to post a screenshot in a thread I'll make later with dink saying the code.

I'm not going to set a release date now, but I'll keep you updated.

Okaay, you'll have an advantage in the contest if you already have a save on Agatha Smallwoods Will, so be sure that you have that.

DEvelopment continued today with two more puzzles, and the removing of one bad >-<'

I'll just make two more puzzles now, and do the finishing up, making everything fit together you know.
I can honestly say It'll be one week now, or less.

I just there's no way I could get close to winning this contest without an existing Agatha savegame?

How long is a normal playthrough anyway? Doesn't matter though if I can't compete, I'll still play it on my own pace.

Well yeah of course you can win without a savegame, it's just that you need a shovel, but that doesn't take long to get!

A play-through should take maybe 1 hour or something... I really don't know, depends if you are good solving puzzles, riddlea, mathproblems n stuff.
