    Hi all, and welcome to Beached! (Prelude).

    After releasing Beached! (part 1) successfully last December, a sequel was just a matter of time.
    Beached! (Prelude) is a new teaser to Beached! (part 2), which will be released later this year.

    After shipwrecking your yacht on a reef, you find yourself on a deserted beach somewhere in the Caribbean.
    At first sight, there's nowhere you can go. Use your wit and common sense to escape anyway, without hurting yourself too much.
    Prelude is an escape room game that was initially designed to merely test drive the new parser and interface.
    But since we liked it so much, we decided to share it anyway.

    Since the release of Part 1, the amount of feedback has been overwhelming.
    You guys actually built this new game, since no feedback was laid aside.
    The best improvement of all is Mr. Theodore "Ted" C. Lim. He joined me for Prelude and is responsible for both the editing and the storytelling.
    He did a great job, guys! You'll notice while playing, I'm sure.

    So, have fun and... WACKIYAHOOWHAA! (...don't worry, you'll get that one)
    Ted and Ewald

    I can't seem to get past the first step on the tutorial - it asks me to type "HELLO" and press enter. I type "Hello" or "hello", and I just get the message "Please type 'HELLO' on the keyboard.". Not sure if this is case-sensitive or not, but judging by the results I'm getting from the game, I think it is, and I cannot for the life of me figure out a way to ensure that "Hello" is in all caps. Caps lock doesn't work, and the shift key doesn't work.

    FYI, I tried this out on Firefox and Chrome with the same results.

    Beached! (Prelude) hinting system:
    Every object in the game comes with its own hint/suggestion.
    This is how hints can be found:

    *) At every fresh start of the game, an object or its location is hinted at.
    *) Click the gray links within the text: they all point towards an object or its location.
    *) Not all nouns are in gray, so be sure to look at everything!
    *) LOOKing (L) at an object gives you a little bit of info on it. After retrieving it, EXAMINE (X) the object to retrieve a hint on where or how to use it.

    Here’s an example:
    After locating it, looking at the coconut tells you it’s a fleshy green fruit containing a brown hairy nut.
    Then, after wrecking your foot (and a bit of the game’s display as well), you can pick up and examine the nut.
    Wow, it’s a killer… I wonder what it could kill?

    I liked the premise and command-line game play in part 1, so I took a stab on the prelude. Getting a little stuck, but that's probably my own doing - just have to figure it out. ;)
