Very well written and fun game! I included it in my Yogscast Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

really cool, but not my bag

Great! Loved the early-90s game art and especially enjoyed the dialogue and choices you could make. And the nostalgia for the old days of the Yogscast worked well with the art style. Also impressed with how much you got done in the time. Loved it!

Had lots of fun playing through this one. The nostalgia factor is through the roof and I liked the perspective shift on a familiar story.

I really enjoyed this! Loved the references, art and music. An interesting interpretation of the theme!

Full of a lot of fun references, a lot of great art for the time provided. A classic genre that made me want to play more. Great job!

"A mysterious man from beyond the stars and a gluttonous dwarf from Khaz Modan. Where they came from, nobody knows" Has to be one of the best lines I've ever read XD

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed that one :D

Amazing entry! The art was incredible, and combined with the audio it really made it feel like an old DOS adventure game. I kinda love the idea that Israphel was the good guy all along :D

Aw, thanks! Yeah. I  always felt there was an anti-Israphel bias in the Yogscast :P

epic game, epic art, potentially a sequel?

Developer(+1)

We'll see. Maybe next year Israphel will try to infiltrate Baked Bean Fort :D

You've done it again NinjaConor. Another excellent Jingle Jam entry :) This one would be fun to see them play on stream, good luck.

Developer

Haha! Thanks! Glad you think so :)

This was Brilliant! The Art had a retro feel and I really  enjoyed all the Yog references. Overall this was a great game and I really enjoyed being able to replay it for different outcomes

Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I'm impressed with how much you managed to add, this is a brilliant entry! I loved the choices you could make, and how they affected each other too - it felt great when the snowballs I collected could be used against Lewis, or the milk to "deal with" the jaffa cakes. I liked the stat system too, it made for some tense moments and risk-making, and some interesting outcomes too. The artwork was brilliant, all the characters felt unique and, combined with the writing, they really fit their personalities well, so great job on making them feel real like that! And the three (I think!) endings were all great, it gave me some good incentive to play through the game again and see what I missed out on the first time. Overall it was a very fun experience, I loved it!

I completely agree with pathtracer on the delay for dialog. I like games like this and I can tell a lot of work went into this. The blue background is a bit heavy on my eyes but the rest of the art is amazing. The idea isn't too original in terms of gameplay but is still fun with all the references to the yogscast. Well done. If you get the chance can you try my game out.

Thanks for the feedback!

Really cool art and authentic retro aesthetic!

Several times I accidentally chose the first option in the list without having time to read them because I hit enter to fill out the text. It'd be cool to have a short delay before you can choose options to prevent that kind of accident.

Developer

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the feedback! :D

"You hear something inside. It is the sound of dick ripping." - Amazing. Oh, and the art is great too

Developer

Thanks! Really glad you liked it!
