The Great Work

JohnBSurprise! Just a few weeks after Knytt Underground made its appearance, Nifflas has released a brand new game! The Great Work is a platform adventure deeply inspired by the Knytt series that follows the metroidvania outline of interconnected passageways strewn with items that grant new abilities and access to new areas. Featuring an alchemy-infused story, The Great Work was made to help promote Bautafilm's latest film that follows the story of Christer Böke, a man who took a year off from his job to become a full-time alchemist.

The Great WorkYou are the apprentice to Fulcanelli, an alchemist who thinks he has just produced a philosopher's stone. Your job is to transmute the stone to gold. How you do that is anybody's guess. Not wanting to disappoint, you head out into the dusk-drenched world and encounter other alchemists, items both useful and mysterious, transmutation furnaces, and hosts of natural barriers to block your progress. Pretty much a normal day for a platform adventurer.

Use the [arrows] keys to move and [S] to jump. The [A] and [D] keys allow you to open your inventory, swap objects, and equip certain items. Trading is a big part of The Great Work, and just about everyone you meet in this minimalist game wants something, has something to give you, or both! All you have to do to make these trades is move objects from your inventory box to the other person's. Some items can even be equipped, supplying you with new abilities like wall climbs, higher jumps, faster feet, or even overhead ceiling grabs!

The Great WorkAnalysis: The Great Work was a surprise release from Nifflas, but who doesn't love a good surprise? It has the general atmosphere of a Knytt release with a lot of the platforming mechanics to match. The alchemy storyline is handled well, never overwhelming you with details, and the emphasis on item collection/transmutation makes it feel just a bit like an RPG. Best of all, The Great Work is an open source, meaning you can grab a copy of Multimedia Fusion 2 and tinker around with the code to your heart's content.

For a free multiplatform release made by a well-known indie game developer, it's hard to find fault with The Great Work. It's a textbook Nifflas adventure, complete with soothing visuals, beautiful ambient music, and plenty of opportunities to get lost in passageways as you attempt to circle your way back. It's not an overly difficult or complex game, just perfect for an afternoon or two of exploration.

cocolaly: to find the flask

you need to get to Egido in the Moon cave. He'll want something heavy in exchange for the flask

this 'something heavy' can be found in the sun cave, but you have to take a shortcut from the area of the moon cave just before Egido's house (see the map).

If you then use the sun cave map to make your way to the sun altar, you'll find a bowling ball to give him in exchange for the flask

so, I'm stuck. I have:

the bottle of honey
cupel
flippers
hand claws
both sticky gloves
maps of desert, dew mines, moon cave, sun cave, and mountains
tracts 1, 2, and 4,
Mineral G,
and the red powder

I seem to have been everywhere in the sun and moon caves and dew mines EXCEPT the moon altar, the dew altar, and the spot with the champagne - which I can't get to because I need a weight for Eleni, which I assume means finding a more suitable 'heavy object' for Egido to use, and giving the bowling ball to Eleni.
I can't seem to get to Una or Gallasteros in the desert, or Mary and Spintheros in the mountains.
I don't have another piece of iron to make the regulus of G for newton, either.

you have to jump from the water to the islandthing with the iron altar on it. (in the dew) then you have to go to the oven and put the iron and the mineral g + the cupel into it. then you have to go to newton (was it newton?) he ll give you new shoes.

Ohh sneaky!

I think crashlanding is past that now, but for those stuck on the Dew Altar

You have to water jump straight up from the chest, in the screen below, to get enough impetus to reach the bottom of the altar - from there just grip and jump around

How do I get past that little creature near the beginning? I've equipped the honey so I can distract it and get it to the end, but I'm not quick enough to run past it. Am I waiting on a speed upgrade of sorts? Or am I just poo?

I'm having trouble getting to the champagne.

I have equipped the Hand Claws and both Sticky Gloves. But I can't get past the spikes. There doesn't seem to be a way to jump between a ceiling walk and a nonconsecutive wall climb.

Any ideas?

You need to take the bottle with dew in it and then set it on the sun alter- turning it into ammonium nitrate, then give that to gallasteros to get the book!

Another fun game from Nifflas.

Critiques:

It's sometimes hard to tell what the next step is (where the "unlocked" areas are, where the next item is (especially that second piece of iron), or where the next person is.) It's easy to get lost.
Also, the world and story could have been more fleshed out. For example, why are there so many alchemists, and what is the significance of the altars?
The game thus was not as immersive as it could have been-I felt rather aware of the gameplay elements and gimmicks - the trade items around mechanic, the teleport boxes, the weights, the useful items placed exactly where you need them... But I guess it comes with the genre.

On the positive side, I really liked the smooth swimming, the musi and many of the backgrounds.

I'm totally stuck... Please, help me!

I have the second piece of iron, the first pair of flippers and now I'm trying to find a weight to give to Eleni, or some mineral G. Can anybody tell me where either of these items are?

I've been trying to find these items for over 2 days now and I'm starting to feel really stupid.

Eleni's weight is

at the top of the "tower" in the desert
(which you need the

spring heels

to be able to get to)

I forget where the Mineral G was, but I think

it was in one of the boxes/chests/etc, not a trade.

I might be misremembering that though.
