Description official descriptions

Aquatania has recently become the land of misfortunes, due to a group of plotting witches. The task of finding five charms and a magic bracelet to put things right falls on you.

And you need a change of luck because events in this game often emphasize the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. You get hit by a car, fall from a great height, are sprayed with a cheese sandwich, and more! Being the guinea pig in this strange world will drive you insane - if this jinxed land doesn't do it first.

Jinxter is an interactive fiction with graphics title that takes a realistic world of people and situations, and then plays with the boundaries to create a strange and puzzling world. Characters are all getting on with their own tasks, and getting them to help you is usually a case of making sure something's in it for them.

Dialogue aims to add a comic touch to proceedings. Puzzles can often be solved in multiple ways, but the most obvious way is not always the correct one. Due to the presence of a Guardian, you can't actually die.
