About The Scarecrow 2
Almost from the beginning
Level 1 - The Magic Garden
It's really the story before that part, you already know
from playing The Scarecrow 1-st version game... The story about how, and why, this girl
became a scarecrow. The story about...well, for more read "The Story" page, please.:)
Level 1 of the new SC2000 game became larger than all previous sets I've done, As a
compressed LZH file it would load slowly and run slower or even freeze on slow computers
with low memory. So, now it's ZIP file, you have to unzip it into its own folder, then
open 1sc2k.cnf in your KiSS viewer.
Level 2 - Pearl's Birthday
This time I pay more attention to the design of details and
Pearl's wardrobe, than to puzzle part, so this level is easier to play. Anyway it's really
huge. The Scarecrow 2000 now has 778 cels and 1738 events. You'll hear about 150 sounds
and there are 7 music tracks on her CD player. Drawing sketches of "you", she'll
try to recognize if you are younger or older man, or if you are a woman. Her reactions
will be a bit different, depending of this, and not all of items will be available for all
This is a birthday, well, full of magic because of Love itself is here... So, enjoy with
Pearl, and just try not to loose her.... :) If you
reach to the bad end, this time you do not need to reload entire game. Give the staff to
The Owl and you'll be back.
Well, as punishment for your bad behavior, you'll lose some items, but sometimes it's not
There are several ends in that part. Do not expect someone of them is the very winning
one... The game is far from to the end. There will be next levels... someday... next
Files of Pearl's Birthday, as second level of The Scarecrow 2 are just an addition, and you could
not play this part as stand alone set. So, unzip files in the same folder, The Magic Garden is. Let several files be replaced by the new ones, then load 2scrcr2k.cnf.
Do NOT try to unfix anything!!!
Such an action will destroy all the animation!!! Also be patient when you play. Clicking
too fast may cause the program to try to perform some command before the previous one is
completed and some animation may freeze...
The Scarecrow is a Quest Game a
bit, with very interactive characters. How to play it? See the "Help
The Scarecrow 2 is NOT a part of,
or addition to The Scarecrow 1-st version! Unzip its files ("Magic
Garden"+"Pearl's B-day") into its own folder, different than the folder of
The Scarecrow1! Be sure, you DO NOT MIX ''the Scarecrow
1" with "the Scarecrow 2000"!!!
If you do that, you'll destroy both games! Some items will be replaced with the others and
even girl's legs and hand will be not the same and not on their right place.
series took many years of hard work and still takes much of my time. What I have shown
here is just a little part of what I already have and what is on my mind about The
Scarecrow. Any support, sponsoring, or donation that will help me to keep that work FREE
in the net, will be very appreciated!
