The Tide Summoner (Universe Factory 30)

Adrift on the ocean, you find yourself among a mysterious archipelago of small islands. Fortunately your boat still works, but you'll soon discover that leaving this place is not as easy as it seems.

Escape the Room style puzzle game, inspired by that classic genre of Flash games, particularly Archipelago and The Dark Room by Jonathan May. If you've played these games, you know there's a good chance of becoming hopelessly stuck. See the README for how to access hints.

Some clues are given through sound effects. It's possible to complete the game without sound, but it will be more difficult. You need to distinguish the colors red, blue, yellow, white, and black for one puzzle. See the README for instructions on changing them if needed.

v1 and v2 have identical gameplay, so feel free to rate either one. However, the autosave/autoload feature is broken in v1. The game's not that long so it shouldn't be a problem unless it crashes on you, but if you want to be able to pick up where you stopped, use v2.

Controls with keyboard. Requires PyGame and PyOpenGL. If you get a syntax error on Python3.7+, see here for a fix.
