Somehow your save file must've gotten corrupted. I've seen this happen to a few people who only just fresh installed the game and I've no idea how it happens. But if you go to your Appdata\Local\AtC_BB\Saved\SaveGames folder and delete the .sav file, next time you boot up the game it should create a fresh save file and solve the issue. If you don't know how to get to your appdata folder, type %appdata% in your search bar and it should pop up.

The game folder should be called Around the Clock at Bikini Bottom (V1.1.0) (64 Bit) assuming that's the version of the game you have. The game folder should be stored wherever you downloaded and left it in, whether that be your downloads folder or some other folder you had chosen. Hope this helps!

Itchio seems to only accept Paypal for purchases, unfortunately.

I've seen a few people run into this. It has to do with newer graphics cards having some sort of issue with games that use older versions of UE4. There is a permanent solution out there, but I forgot what it is. The easiest but temporary solution is to disable your internet on your PC before launching the game, and apparently that fixes the issue. Tho you'll have to do that every time you launch the game. X_X

The game force closing like that is due to a weird confliction with newer graphics cards having an issue with games made in older versions of UE4. There is a permanent solution out there, but I don't know it. The temporary solution I always give to people tho, is to disable your internet on your PC before launching the game and that seems to fix it, but you have to do that everytime you decide to launch the game. X_X

I believe Itchio uses Paypal as the only payment method at the moment, unfortunately.

You should already own the game and be able to download it from your library if you've already purchased it once. No need to rebuy it. Click on the little drop down arrow where your profile is and click "My Library". You should be able to find the game there.

You might be in the wrong place? When you open appdata, it'll take you to Appdata/Roaming. You need to backtrack to just the Appdata folder and there you'll find your Local folder.

The file path should be Appdata\Local\AtC_BB\Saved\SaveGames and you'll find your .sav in there. If you don't know how to get to your appdata, type %appdata% in your search bar.

One potential fix is disabling the internet and launching the game. Seems to be an issue with certain graphics cards with older UE4 games and apparently doing this fixes it. If that doesn't help, are you using Windows 11? If so, UE4 games don't seem to be 100% compatible with Windows 11 yet so sometimes there can be issues like game crashes and such. Hope this helps!

Your save file might've gotten corrupted when your PC crashed. Go into your Appdata\Local\AtC_BB\Saved\SaveGames folder and delete the .sav file. After relaunching the game, it should create a fresh save file and fix the issue. You'll unfortunately lose your game progress, but the game should function normally again.

Finally got around to trying out this alpha. I enjoyed it a ton!

Felt like I was playing through something I would've made back then. The cutscene for Dracula was a nice touch, giving him more of a spotlight and character development throughout the game's story. Loved the sound design and music for the original floors, and I gotta say, the puzzles like the A,B,C orb one was very clever.

Excited to see what you do for the next alpha build, this has been a treat to play through.

It's possible your save file might've gotten corrupted. Go into your Appdata\Local\AtC_BB\Saved\SaveGames folder and delete the .sav file. After relaunching the game, it should create a fresh save file and hopefully fix the issue.

Sure, you're free to use them if you so wish. Since these are older models I'm pretty lax about this stuff, though I would usually prefer people make their own assets just to see their spin on things. Good luck with the project tho!

Glad to hear you enjoyed AtC! I respect you asking permission first, you're allowed to do what you wanna do with em' in Roblox. Have fun!

Some newer graphics cards seem to run into an issue that causes certain UE4 games to crash. The only solution at the moment is to disconnect from your internet before launching the game and it shouldn't crash anymore. You'll likely need to do this each time you launch the game, sorry! ;w;

Been very busy on two separate large projects as of late! Vex Clock which can be wishlisted on Steam, and Dave.EXE, which is currently in early access over on my Patreon and will eventually land on early access on Steam once I feel like it's in a presentable enough state. I haven't had much time to work on smaller, free games in a long time (I've got busy life now!) so people probably won't be seeing much over here on Itchio too often. I hope you and many others will look forward to my future Steam releases!

From what I've heard, on rare occasions Windows 11 seems to have compatibility issues with Unreal Engine games at the moment. One solution that's helped some folks with crashing issues is turning off your internet on your PC and then launching the game. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid I don't know what could be causing the game to crash, other than compatibility issues with Windows 11. D:

Unfortunately I'm not sure what would be causing the game to crash there. One thing you can try is disconnecting from your internet and then launch the game. Apparently that's worked for a few folks.

I would love to have added language support to Around the Clock, but unfortunately I am no longer updating the game with any new content. Perhaps future games of mine will support Spanish and many more languages if I can get the opportunity to do so.

You need an unzipping program such as Winrar or 7Zip to unzip .rar files.

Is it giving you any sort of error message or crash report when opening the application? I need more details to help!

It's possible your save file might've gotten corrupted. Go into your Appdata\Local\AtC_BB\Saved\SaveGames folder and delete the .sav file. After relaunching the game, it should create a fresh save file and hopefully fix the issue. You will unfortunately lose your progress if you had any, so if you want to back up your save file first before deleting in case this fix doesn't work, you can do so. But the game should function properly now after deleting your save manually and starting a newgame.

Heyo, unfortunately porting to Google Play isn't exactly as simple as exporting it for that platform. A lot goes into making a game compatible for other platforms and it's not something I'm looking into doing anytime soon, Windows PC is more my forte. Sorry!

Of course! It's always cool to see what kinda fangames folks will make.

I'm afraid I don't know what could be causing that to happen, since normally installing the game should come with everything and nothing missing. Sorry I can't be of much help!

Not quite sure why that's happening. Do you happen to have the Oculus app (for the Oculus VR if you have one) installed on your PC? I heard it sometimes causes black screen issues for some users, so you could try uninstalling it and see if the game works. If not, try disconnecting from your internet before you launch the game and see if it works. If none of the above works, I'm afraid I don't know what else could be the issue, sorry!

That is very odd. After downloading the game and only unzipping the .rar (no need to compress it to a zip), it should just be a simple folder with the application and everything inside. Something on your PC must be reading it as a Microsoft Edge File for it to be doing that. Not sure what the cause could be. Sorry!

You'll need an unzipping program such as Winrar or 7zip to unzip the .rar file.

Unfortunately the game doesn't support windowed mode. It's a pretty old game and silly ol' me back then never knew how to add a proper windowed mode, lol

Unreal Engine 4. It has a method of programming using blueprints, which act like connecting nodes to program various things. Easy to learn and very versatile.

Unfortunately I don't exactly know how to install it, but I'm sure you can Google it and find out how online.

It may be something relating to your web browser that's preventing you from downloading it.

You may need to install the latest version of Microsoft Direct X. It'll likely fix the problem.

I can confirm he is not working on the Slendy Something update atm. He's currently busy with his day job and other projects.

I didn't forget, still trying to figure it out and generally not sure if it's possible for me to upload it to Gamejolt due to the way packages are uploaded over there. But I'll see about trying to get it uploaded on there soon!

Did you unzip the .rar folder? If you haven't already done so, you'll need Winrar or 7Zip or any unzipping program to unzip the .rar folder. After doing so, you should be able to launch the application normally. If you did already unzip it and the game is just simply not launching after double clicking the application, then I'm not sure what the problem could be if there isn't any sort of error message appearing.

I don't believe I've ever announced a version 2.0 for Werthit, but if you're just simply requesting for an update, then I'm afraid that's not something I plan on doing anytime soon. I'm pretty happy with it at the moment and I've got my hands full with other projects in development, such as Vex Clock, so it just isn't feasible to be updating this game any further, sorry!

From what I've seen, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't on Windows 11. Seems to be a compatibility issue with the OS being so new. Until an OS update or a workaround comes out, there's nothing I can really do unfortunately. D:
