Okay, I think I've gotten this done enough to post something here, so here goes
The current competition theme is H.P. Lovecraft's Commonplace Book. For those of you unfamiliar with H.P. Lovecraft, he was a pulp horror writer back in the day, and is responsible for the Cthulhu mythos, among other things. His Commonplace Book was a notebook in which he jotted down scenes or ideas for stories, and some of them are rather strange.
I chose #186: Thing from sea�in dark house, man finds doorknobs etc. wet as from touch of something. He has been a sea-captain, and once found a strange temple on a volcanically risen island.
I have the whole story mapped out in my head and have the first level (almost) entirely done. Unlike the VGNG compo from way back when it looks like I might have a chance at finishing this one.

(This game was built with an earlier version of Construct so the sound version may crash on some machines. If that happens to you, try the no-sound version.)
This Cursed Rock v0.5.5 (7MB, mainly because of the sound)
Use Z to select menu items and to jump. Press Up when the magnifying glass appears to inspect an item. ESC to quit.
The first level is very short (and ends very abruptly), the main part of the game will be played as a flashback. There will be jumping and shooting and... unimaginable horrors from the sea
(Don't mind the Ben Bernanke gorilla image there at the end, it was just an in-joke for the TIGS forum. It will be replaced by the real uninvited guest in the final version...)
