TRAILER




♦ THE WALKTHROUGH TO PUT A SOCK IN IT! ♦


Did someone ask for:

* 90 unique-ish endings?
* 30 profound-ish life lessons to learn?
* Sock puppet humor and violence galore?



The Story of Socks

Image

Serena

"This isn’t even the worst place I’ve been locked in.
* sigh * We don’t think about that, Serena.
"

What would you do if you were trapped somewhere for a long time? Put A Sock In It! dares ask the question: How far would you go to entertain yourself? With all her coworkers gone for the weekend, no way of contacting the outside world, and no hint of rescue in sight, Serena will discover that maybe, just maybe, her best friend is actually herself. And these puppets she just made from her socks...
Image
You play the game by selecting each pair of characters, for a total of four combinations: Princess x Wizard, Ghost x Stable Boy, Wizard x Ghost, and Stable Boy x Princess. Each pairing gives you control of the situation and relationship from one of the characters' point of view. For example, in the Princess x Wizard pairing, the Wizard has abducted her and you play as the Princess, guiding the story with her reactions -- do you hate him, or could this be love?

Princess Franceska

Hobbies: Being happy, exploring, upkeep of castles, keeping tabs on neighboring princes.
Dislikes: Stuffy high society, imprisonment.


Image
Evil Wizard Nefario

Hobbies: Being powerful, subjugation, kidnapping, stealing, hexing, destroying enemies, summoning magical creatures.
Dislikes: Disobedience, paying for things.


Image
Ghost of Ambiguous Identity

Hobbies: Being spooky and mysterious, haunting, revenge.
Dislikes: Traitors, killers.


Image
Stable Boy Georgie

Hobbies: Spending time with animals, pitchforking things, dreaming of princesses.
Dislikes: Non-vegetarians, the dark past.


Image


Summary
Having locked herself in a stairwell, Serena is quickly beginning to run out of distractions. Thankfully, she has two colorful socks and a penchant for amusing herself. So, to pass the time she will weave short, humorous skits based on your selections between characters of your choice, with storylines ranging from romantic melodrama between princess and stable boy to violent quarrels with an evil wizard. This game features one setting (Magic Kingdom) with four characters (Princess, Ghost, Evil Wizard, Stable Boy), altogether coming in at a little over 27, 000 words with all the variations.

* The game has sock puppet violence, and some suggestively risqué dialogue on the odd occasion.

♦ How did you like the game (and what about it)? I loved it! The silly death animation of the puppets never failed to amuse, and neither did the writing :P

♦ Who is your favorite sock character?
Can I choose? Probably the evil wizard or Dark Stable Boy (I thoroughly appreciated the Moonlight Sonata monologue)

♦ What were some of your favorite endings/developments (use the spoiler tag please)?
Kick Butt, Chew Bubble Gum was the first one I got, so I'll go with that one.

♦ What did you think about the lessons (did you learn them all and finish the game)?
I haven't learned them all yet ;_; (still working on it) but I thought they were cute overall.

Thanks Edel! I'm glad you enjoyed it (and/or are enjoying it)!
Haha! Dark Stable Boy was one of my favourite endings to write, too! :)

Heeeyyyyyyy guess who finally booted this game up and played a few stories? (I'm so late I'm sorry)

I went with Ghost and Wizard and the very first ending that I got was "Tell Them How You Feel!" I have to say I was not expected those feels from such a lighthearted game. ^_^ You did an amazing job writing that lesson!

Speaking of writing - the whole thing is just fantastic. I can't even properly express how fantastic. But, for anyone who's on the fence about downloading this, you'll love it if you're into comedy. The jokes are on point throughout the entire thing, or at least all of it that I've played so far.

The only other lesson that I learned was "Everything Your Heart Desires!" I kept on getting all of the moral-less ones. cx Still hilarious, even though they didn't unlock anything.

I'd also just like to say that I really appreciated that the choices were grayed out once I'd gone through every branch possible. I was starting to worry that I was going to need to draw myself one of those probability trees so that I wouldn't replay the same endings over and over. That's some clever programming indeed. ^_^

I'll make another post once I've gotten more endings!
