I would like to present (drum roll please), my game, "Evil Zoltan"
The story behind this game is that instead of becoming cursed by
a mechanical fortune telling machine, you are cursed to become
one. To add more salt to the wound, you have a trial period being one. Breaking the curse only exists if you tell the correct fortunes to strangers so you will break the curse.
Instructions are in the game, but just in case, what you need to do is line up the AURA and SPIRIT with the pointers as close as you can. If they are close enough when you click the "predict" button, part of the curse is lifted, if you fail you will be Evil Zoltan (the fortune telling machine) forever. Random customers with random amounts of patience will attempt to get a fortune, be sure to tell them before the patience runs out. Also, there are some Tarot cards that will be given to you randomly that will help you play the game also.
I tried to be as mystical as I could. Zoltan (or Zoltar?) machines have always fascinated me. They are creepy, so I tried to keep it creepy, but my humor leaked into it a little bit also. Just for fun, I put an Easter egg in this game. See if you can find it. If you do, Evil Zoltan will do a card trick for you. For those that have seen the trick before, you may not be impressed.Play:
