Thanks for taking the time to record a video of our another game. It was a joy to watch someone solving our puzzles. And as for the piggies... some say they are extremely clever, but... as they game shows they seem vicious as well : D

The game was made with AGS and it produces builts only in Win (and Linux). Sorry.

Sorry, didn't quite get what a GB is?

I know that some people tried to by pass the antivirus by creating a new folder (before you download the game there) and telling it to exclude this folder from monitoring.

Good, that was the plan! Hopefully, it's more of a comedy than drama, as the whole idea was to bring Bareja's vibe to computers.

Let me know what you think of it. You can also check out our other game, Absurdistan, which also features lots of familiar names. No Barteks, though ; )



Who said having a pet piggie is a bad idea? Well, you did. Just now. It's 10 before the festive dinner and you find yourself in a pickle thanks to your pet. Or should we say 'pigle'. The lovely gift for your sister is gone. Will you manage to get it back in time?

Manual:

You control Timur, the main character, with mouse using only left mouse button. The right button is used only to click out from menus or to display inventory descriptions.

In settings, there is an option to disable mouse highlights when hovering over interactive hotspots - the game is rather short, so this way you may try to challenge yourself a bit : )

Hope you like it. Feel free to share what you make of it : ) 

This is the full version of the game : )

No, it's purely a hobby project.

Hi everyone,

After finishing my last game, Absurdistan (https://lazy-squirrel.itch.io/absurdistan), I was left with a few leftover assets that never made the cut. This got me thinking and after a few days of brainstorming I ended up having a design document for a short puzzle game.

However, as much as proud I am of Absurdistan, I know that pixel-art isn't my forte. So, rather than doing the same thing again, I thought I would scrap the leftovers and try to buddy up with someone who can actually do pixel-art.

Hence my offer: if you enjoy playing point'n'clicks and doing pixel art and would like to work on a game, feel free to get in touch with me. Who knows... maybe together we will create something absolutely mind blowin' : ) Probably we will not, but at least we might have some fun with it.

The game is fully planned out (plot, logical puzzles, etc.).

As for the assets the following would be needed:
- 4 characters (3 would need walking cycles, too).
- 4 rooms (ideally with animated objects).
- 4 puzzle panels.

Because I am planning on reusing the interface from Absurdistan I thought that this game could also be a 2d side-scroller with a part of the screen dedicated for the text.

If you are interested please feel free to drop me a PM and I could provide you with more details about the game, so you can tell whether or not it's something up your alley : )

A nice little game that tells you something about the real world that is hard to be found in the mainstream. I wish more games like this were made.

Dear Comrade,

The Party needs you! You must come to Absurdistan immediately and join Leszek on his little quest to save his father's name day! A trifle you say? Oh, Comrade, how wrong of you! Don't you forget that Absurdistan is a place where logic is nowhere to be found and that Absurdanis are reluctant to help each other out. Where keeping your profile low and showing your devotion to the Party is your bread and butter. Hope now you understand that in this place even a simple task becomes an adventure in its own right.

There is no time to lose, so get your passport ready and hop on the first train to Absurdistan!

Glory to the Party! 

About the game: Absurdistan is a partially text-based, side-scrolling adventure game featuring simplistic graphics.

You play as Leszek, a young Absurdani, who, just like his family, is fed up with the regime imposed by the Party. But, dear Adventure Gamer, fear nothing! Despite the seemingly gloomy setting, the game doesn't intend to get you down, as its main goal is to poke fun at many absurdities of the daily life in a totalitarian-communist state. 

The game features a whole variety of puzzles, which, unlike the state of Absurdistan, do make sense. Some of them may even require you to grab something to write and figure them out in real life.

Btw, what surprised me (in a good way) was how you solved the TV puzzle. I knew it was (sort of) open-ended and that there is at least a couple of possible solutions but I have never seen anyone doing it the way you did it : )

Many thanks for taking the time to play the game and for your kind words! It's always nice to watch someone solving your own puzzles. Your pronunciation was bang on most of the time, so nothing to be sorry about ;) Also, the collage on the thumbnail cracked me up big time : D

This emotion chart looks really good. I didn't know the main character assets would be so diversified. 

This looks very promising. I really like the EGA graphics and the story, which is very original (plus I learnt something here, because as a non-American I had to look up what Quad Cities actually means). 

Such a nice small game. I've really enjoyed the story, as it gave me a couple of good laughs. Also, your art is really nice to look at; it reminds me of old  comic-books.

Wow! This was really unexpected : )
Many many thanks for your nice words and for the time spent on playing our little game. Watching you play Good God! when having our morning coffee simply made our day : ) Seeing you enjoy the dialogues, the characters and, above all, the puzzles was the biggest reward for making the game. Thank you : )
PS.
Extra thanks for pointing out some bugs. When we've got a bit of a free time we will try to fix them : )

I had a really good time playing it.
