The Fool And His Money Rounding The Corner
6:00 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story
In an email to his long-time fans, legendary puzzle creator Cliff Johnson has announced that his upcoming sequel to one of the Mac's most loved puzzle game, The Fool's Errand, is unfortunately being delayed... again.
Entitled The Fool And His Money, the sequel picks up where the original left off, with players tasked with helping The Fool navigate puzzles, riddles, word games, and various other mind games. Gameplay for the new title will be similar in style to the previous version of the game, but with more elaborate puzzles, and a deeper and richer environment.
The overworked programmer, who has been labouring solo over the title for almost two years straight, has regrettably admitted that adding the final polish to the game will put its delivery past its October 31st deadline -
My dear long-suffering True Believer,Readers who may not remember the original game, or who would like to revisit the classic "metapuzzle", can download the first version of the game, along with Cliff's other Macintosh titles, At The Carnival and 3 In Three for free from his website. The Classic-friendly titles are available through the links below.
Another note from the Fool who cried “Game!” Defanged and declawed, I struggle tooth and nail to finish the modest sequel that no one more than me is waiting to see. Now things look like the end of November or beginning of December. I appreciate your continuing patience and support, and if misery loves company, remember, there’s no one suffering more than me.
The Fool And His Money, which can be pre-ordered from Cliff's website for $39.99 US, is will be shipping on a Mac/PC hybrid disc when it's ready. Stay tuned to IMG for further news on the long-awaited title.
