Leximan the Leximancer in the Dungeon of Despair and Doom.

Leximan is but a humble leximancer - a word wizard, of sorts. His adventures have taken him far and wide, and his words have served him well. This time, however, his prized spell-book has been torn to shreds by terrible creatures. Without his lexicon to keep his spells in order, his magic has become wild and unpredictable.

Can you guide Leximan safely to the restoration of his Lexicon?

Drag two incomplete runes into the speech zone and press 'Cast' to watch the magic unfold!

There are many ways to complete your adventure safely, and unsafely, so feel free to return to the start and begin Leximan's adventure a second, third, or even a fourth time!

Made in 48 hours by Knights of Borria for Global Game Jam 2020, with minor changes and fixes.

I love the vibe of this game (: Dialogues and possibilities are hilarious .

This game is pretty fun. I like having options. I ended up dying on purpose to see the different outcomes. 


Love it :D
Would very much like a huge, expansive, branching version.

Scrunge-kun best waifu <3


very rad! I want a long game ... I NEED MORE LEXIMAN


This is awesome! This reminds me of this inde RPG game called Undertale!


OK, really cool. Love everything that can go on. It’s pretty funny to see all of the different things you can do. Great job on everything


Wow, this was amazing! I can't believe you made it in 48 hours. The music, art and gameplay are all great! I'm really curious about how you achieved the visual effect with everything moving around all the time.


Thanks! That effect is something I'm very proud of - but it's actually quite simple. I have a bunch of scripts for general movement, and with a combination of those scripts and parenting you end up with everything on the move. The scripts I use the most involve gradually increasing and decreasing an object's scale (shrink and grow), floating an object up and down or side to side, and moving an object in a circular motion. I hope that makes sense!

Yeah, I'll have to give that a try. Thanks for sharing!
