There are two nursery rhymes invloved with the mod so far. The Muffin Man and the Three Blind Mice. After making your way into the Crooked Mansion (where the whole game is set), you will find yourself in the Mansion Foyer. At the back of the foyer is a spiral staircase that has doors leading to the different rooms of the house. Each door leads to a different fairytale.

The Three Blind Mice tale starts at the bottom of the Mansion Wine Cellar. You must find your out of the Spider infested area and make your way to the Dining Room. Here, the Three Blind Mice will shrink you down to their size using their magical capabilities. The game is then carried out on the dining room table!

The Muffin Mans tale starts one end of the 'corridor of death'. After successfully making your way down the corridor and into the ballroom, you will have to make your way through the clockwork dancers to advance to the Muffin Mans Kitchen. Here, you will battle with Gingerbread men, will have to collect screaming muffins and finally destroy the Muffin Man himself.

By successfully completing a tale/level, you will be given a page of the nursery rhyme book that will return to its original state (and also give you access to the rest of the house). The player must collect all of the books pages and eventually battle it out with the Crooked Man.

Each tale contains a fast/action and slow/puzzling gameplay experience. The diverse amount of interactiviy will surely keep the experience new and exciting for the player.

Let the tales begin!

GhostWriter is a game based on the corruption of nursery rhymes. By rewriting the nursery rhyme book, the crooked man has turned what was once good to evil. It is now up to the player to right this wrong and change the nursery rhymes back to their original...

Absolutely love the style of this - very nice :]

I hope you get it finished, would be a waste of some real nice work if it died >_<

Was thinking of making something similar myself so I thought I'd have a look what already existed ;]

Do you know how to change the AI of a character so they will flee from you, instead of pursue?

Cool! I love your tutorials and think it's a great thing you create them for the community. Also it's a very good way to keep your name "on the list" and not disappear into occasional media releases.

Good job!
