MACe the Adventure is a puzzle-oriented adventure game developed as part of my Master Thesis for Computer Science, specialization Multimedia, at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam.

You take on the role of our heroine, who decides to visit the local arcade center, owned by the eccentric Minos. Unknown to her, this is the start of a strange journey...

Nice idea to delete the files of the mod at ModDB so the community rating is stuck to 7.5 with just 18 reviews !

I dunno if there's anyone on this board who can still help me with this, but I can't figure out the tai chi puzzle. I'm pretty sure I found at least two solutions that involved having opposite arrangements of broken or whole pieces on either side of the tai chi octogon, nothing happens when I stand on the symbol or do anything else. Assuming that this isn't a glitch, could I get a screenshot of what the actual correct solution is supposed to be?

DeathDealer91's link gives me a 404 error. I think it has expired.

I can guarantee that there are no viruses in the mod package. Make sure to download the package (again) from the official website: .

The problem here is that some virus scanners have problems with scanning executable (.exe) files and mark any .exe file they don't know as a trojan.

The package for MACe is a self-extracting Nullsoft installer executable.

Short, but sweet. My only complaint is the length. Anyone interested in puzzle oriented adventure games would do very well to try this out. If you could extend this mod to over 5 hours you'd have something worth buying.
