Hello, guys! Welcome to a little game I created called “The Resurrection of Don Taco”. This is a little project that I’ve been working on all week. I was inspired to create this game/story after someone intentionally slaughtered a friend of mine, Don Taco.
They know who they are.
You will be playing as yourself in this story. If characters mention your name, they’ll say “[YOU]” instead.
So how it works, is that in every chapter of the game, there will be multiple puzzles (and ciphers) for you to solve.
Every time you think you’ve solved a puzzle, be sure to @ me so I can verify your answer.
These chapters are all centered around either a series, a game, or a musical “artist”.
Okay, I’ll shut up now. Here is the first chapter of the story. There will be no puzzle until tomorrow, this way you can ask some questions before the game begins.
Chapter 1: A Disturbing Knock at 3 AM
You hear a loud knock on your door.
You: (drowsily) Huh? Who would knock on my door in the middle of the night? Who would knock on my door at all-
You hear the knocking again, this time it’s louder than before.
You: (still drowsy) Coming!
You get off of your bed, slide on your slippers, and put your robe on. You trudge to the door, a little annoyed. You pull the door open. It’s a boy. No, a teenager. He was carrying a backpack on his back, with one strap on his shoulder. The other strap hung lose.
You rub your eyes.
You: (still drowsy) What do you want?
???: Hi, are you [YOU]?
You: Um, yes. I am-
???: Yessssss. I’m Jack. I saw your ad in a newspaper saying you are experienced in… puzzle solving? I could use your help.
You: I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve never admitted an ad nor do I want to be solving any puzzle.
Jack: So you’re not [YOU]?
Jack hands you the ad. It’s true. Your name is on an ad for… ugh… puzzle-solving. You wonder how this happened…
Jack: (enticingly) I’ll pay you a good amount of money.
Jack takes out a bag full of gold coins. “That will certainly help with the debts”, you think to yourself.
You: Alright, I accept. This better not be a trick or anything.
You let Jack into your home, and offer him a seat while you dress up and prepare your coffee. Jack sets his backpack on the floor. Once you finish preparing your coffee, you sit down in front of Jack.
You: So what’s the deal? Do you want me to help you with crossword or what?
Jack: Umm, no. Recently, a close friend of mine passed away when he was swallowed up by a wave of water. I tried to rescue him, but by the time I tried, it was too late. He was already soggy and mushy.
Jack: He’s a taco. Don’t laugh. Its not his fault he got trapped inside of something so appetizing. Before his death, he used to be a good friend of mine. We would talk for hours on end. Until… we encountered a monster by the name “Quagsire”. The monster felt insulted by Don Taco’s words, and summoned a powerful wave of water to destroy him. I miss him. I just need to resurrect him to bring him back.
You think to yourself, “Great, he’s crazy. How did he even get all that money?”
Jack: I know it might seem crazy, but… please. I need your help.
After a few moments of silence, you decide to help Jack out of pity.
You: Alright, I’ll help. How will we resurrect him?
Jack: We need to retrieve five relics from around the area. It should be easy. With your help, that is.
