The Path

Encounter a series of challenges in this illustrated text-based puzzle game. 


  1. The game uses keyboard input.
  2. Type DROP <<ItemName>> to make the initial sacrifice.
  3. Type I or INVENTORY to list the articles of sacrifice.
  4. Type QUIT or RESTART, to restart your journey.


The path is a fantasy game. Particular actions that work in a fantasy context may be dangerous if attempted in real-life.

Ok, now, after a big bunch of tries i know how to pass everything... EXCEPTING THAT FKING CRYSTAL BOX OF THE END... So, lets relax, I've enjoyed a lot your game so, can you give me a clue please?.... I wont be able to sleep if i dont finish this game!

Please be kind ;D

Good job with the game, its very cool ;D, but i always get stuck with the skeleton


what is a skeleton made of?

This game really sucked me in. I like the illustrations, the flexibility of the commands and how there's just enough suggestion of a plot to be interesting and provide motivation without distracting from the game itself. It all suits the genre really well. My only real problem is that I'm stuck. I've gotten as far as I ever have, getting past all the obstacles up to the ants, and I'm left with nothing. From the disclaimer I guess I just have to figure out a way to get past the bear without using an item but I have no idea how. Other than that I only have a few minor quibbles, overall it's a very fun play.

Thanks for the nice comment. Glad to see that the game is having the desired effect.

As I don't know if this forum supports spoiler tags, I pasted a hint for the bear  in plaintext here:


Sickness blocks the path, dont know what to do...
