Update, June 26: New version's up and running. Bunch fo small changes: sound, more animation in the trog scene, and sequencing. You should be able to collect four items at this point. Note: You'll need the witch's list to get the bloodworms. Click the tree outside her hut to get out.
No promises that this is bugless, but I wanted to get an update out there.

Sort of update, June 20: Alright, kind of sort of mixed news announcement here. In 48 hours (and counting), Red is going offline. And coming back online. But in installments. I've got the game developing sequentially now, so that you have to play through steps A and B to get to step C. So...
As of 48 hours from now, you will not be able to access the Boar or orgy scenes until I get them playable within the larger framework of the game (and by the game I mean level 2). All of this very long preamble is to say, if you liked those scenes, play them to your hearts content and commit them to memory because after 48 hours time they're going to be inaccessible (for a week or so). Make sense? No? iz gud.
PS - explicative explicative (are we allowed to swear on here?) I hate that crow. He's the first thing gone in the next update. Because killing Crows is what we do.

Update June 6: ZOMG huge breakthrough in my understanding of actionscript. Where before it was a helpless, squalling infant, it is now a wobbly-limbed toddler. I think I know how to fix most of the bugs in my game and do some other stuff I'd wanted to, but it's gonna mean I go offline for a while (the weekend I expect) while I script. Look for an update Sunday/Monday.


Update June 4 (June 5 2AM): I've re-giggered a couple of things, no dramatic changes. New animation in the bar sex scene, and advance apologies to the folks who liked the frenching/fondling -- that's not gone forever, I just haven't had a chance to add it back in yet. I'm experimenting with making the sex scenes more interactive, and the learning curve is steep.
Hopefully I've started to get at the bugs, but I imagine that if you start running through a bunch of scenes consecutively you'll hit them.

Update June 2: Few things added, and one new sex scene. Click the middle troll in the second room of the bar to activate. It's rough cut, and no sound yet, but I wanted to have something to show for the weekend.

Update June 1: The TrogBlog lives. My amazing, brilliant girlfriend knocked it together this afternoon. I'll be posting some content there, though for now most of it will be replicated here on the forum. There is also a donation feature for people who want to show support. It helps pay for Flash and keeps me caffeinated.

You can find the blog at Trogdorandfriends.blogspot.com

Update May 30: We have liftoff! You can now click anywhere in the orgy below the bar to play a new movie scene. I'm going to take a break from content building for a bit to work through some of the bugs and add a few more details here and there.

Update May 27 *edit*: Yo... bar scene (through the red curtain to the right of the opening scene) should be up and running. I've been sorting bugs out for the last hour or so, but sadly it is not yet bugless -- fyi, once you go in the bar, you can't get out.

Update May 23: Game is back in production. Added a sex scene for level 2 (click the boar's cage to the right of the level). Lots (LOTS) more to do so thanks all for your patience. As they say on the Iron Islands of the Internet: What is thread shall never die!

Got as far as the 'sauna' cave, the drain and ladder which I presume move on to the next parts don't work - so I'm guessing that's as far as it goes right now?

What you've got is really good thus far, a great concentration of scenes.

Wow this is awesome! I particularly like how you did the set. The mountains look great and the path way i love. I love me some point and click too. Glad to have another game to look forward too :D

Glad people are figuring their way through. Quick question: in terms of playability, is the playscreen big enough for people to read the talk bubbles?
PS -- should be four sex scenes at this point -- some of them take a little fiddling around to find.

PPS -- you're right about the drain and the ladder being the end of the line at this point, although you can go down into the drain in the sauna -- though it's a dead end after that. To get down the drain, you have to enter the sauna while not covered in troll scum (wash off in the barrel in the first room) and click on the glowing grate in the floor. Then just walk over, and you should fall down.

No, the screen is far too small. The girl can walk a little bit faster and you should probably add a loading screen before you are going to be adding sound.

Finally, the nipples could be improved as they now look like big purple circles instead of nips.

Usually if the screen is small I Just zoom in, the whole flash looks fine at 200%. The text is still small then, yet readable, but yea when you zoom to 100% not really readable. I agree with Quiz, it would be nice if she walked faster.

I forgot to click on the swf to get full-screen. But even then the text is very small.

This looks very promising, glad so see someone doing something this awesome out of those sprites! Some animations here and there that could use some tweaking, and yes, the text could probably be a bit bigger and she could move a bit faster over all, and if your game will feature platforming I suggest letting her jump higher as well.
Other than that I love the setup to bits! Really nice job with the mountain and that red horizon, good job!
I will most definitely keep an eye out on this one.

I like it. I will admit I walked off the edge of the cliff and you don't die, you just fall forever. I also agree with the walking faster, that's the only thing that bugs me about the Krystal games, she walks so slow...

Oh yeah, I can't look at your user name and not want to yell out "TROGDOR!!!!"

This game could have some burninating if you wanted!

And their thatch-roofed cottages!!!
Thanks for all the good feedback guys, I'll resubmit an updated version (no new scenes, but fixed a few of the problems people have raised) tonight. Just curious, has anyone figured out how to bring up the sex scene with the female troll?

I have, Trogdor. So, the sex scenes are as follows...

1) Click on the pig's corpse in the first room.
2) Click on the sleeping pig in the first room.
3) Female(?) troll - click on the hanging corpse directly to the right of the door to the first room outside (the one with the aforementioned sleeping troll and pig corpses), then click twice on the female troll.
4) Click the sauna pool.

I would like a bigger version of this - the text is kinda hard to read, particularly from the female troll. Or perhaps a textbox at the bottom of the screen.

EDIT: Also, you can increase the movement speed a bit and add some sound too - that'd be great.

Will do. I think I need to re-gigger the whole dialogue system. Shouldn't take too long. In the meantime I'll re-size the existing text boxes.

Sometimes the character is in front of the dialogue and thus you have to move her aside to read the full text.
You might want to change it to where it'll overlap?

This game is pretty well done so far. Suggestion though, you should add in a brief background story of how she got there in the first place. Anything simple works, such as going out hunting and gets captured, exploring the mountain caves, etc.

Agreed about the background story. I've got ideas but it'll take time. Count on it in a week or so.

Well it seems like the sex scenes are telling a story of their own. Perhaps you can go about doing it like that through the whole way, somewhat like a neo-noir porn.
