  • The game was funny with nice art and logical puzzles.
  • A very good entry, wonderful art style that stood out in terms of quality, it was great that each scene had its own audio although it would have been nice to see it match the setting, the bassy tunes outside felt very out of place. A short and simple tale which felt a little obvious - the puzzles were clearly signposted and the goals clear. Loved the variety of characters and fantastic humour throughout making it a joy to play.

I really love the art style! The story is short but satisfying and the animations are smooth. I thought the music was very fitting too. I enjoyed playing it!

Developer

Thanks! I did what I could with the animations, I'm glad they weren't too horrible. ;)

The setup file can't save the configuration (the package is missing acsetup.cfg, maybe that's the reason?)

I wanted to try it, but since AGS always gives problems when it's full screen and you switch windows, I tend to play windowed mode, and I can't.

Developer(+1)

I'm really sorry about that!

Luckily, I believe I've found what was the issue and re-uploaded the game. If you decide to retry it, please let me know if it works!

I've also made it so that it defaults to windowed instead of full-screen,  hopefully that works better for you.

Thanks for pointing out the issue!

Don't worry, I'm also an AGS user so I changed it manually before playing :) anyway I tried now and it works.

Nice game, I like the style. I was also thinking of using a similar art style with bubble speech, but I felt it didn't go well with my plot

Developer(+1)

I'm glad it works now!

By the way, your game looks fun, I'll give a try it tonight!

What a cool game! Loving the art style and the story is very nicely conveyed in a such short period of time the game lasts. Great art, good music, cute puzzles and a few laughs is all one can ask from a game jam game and I properly enjoyed this adventure!

Developer

Thank you! I'm really happy you enjoyed the game!
