Apr 18, 2016 @ 3:22pm

All this graphics are very impressive!
Something missing for an adventure game: choice in dialogues (even if it's flase choices)

("Tas de beaux oeufs", haha!)

Adipson says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 3:34pm

i did that in 60 hours , i am in the jam on solo ;) i don't sleep, i drink coca zero and coffee and i am late at my job today lol
i replace the file by a new ! can you download again and tell me if this version is ok KodingNights ? thanks a lot

Adipson says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 3:35pm

ha it's working for dunin ! good ! :) thks yeah dialogues but 72 was too short for me for install dialogs :)

Adipson says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 8:40pm

Version ok ! a lot of people play this game and there is no bugs ! and you ? comments ? Do you have the 3 cheese ?

Great, graphics is impressive, shapeshifting is cool and the humor is great!

xclementx says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 8:57pm

Dommage, pas encore de version Mac ?

Adipson says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 9:02pm

xclementx le jeu est censé tourner sur Mac, le moteur AGS le supporte normalement mais je n'ai aucun retour de test sur cet os. Si tu peux voir de ton côté du coup mais le fichier est le même pour mac, windows et linux

The graphics are astonishing! Hard to believe you managed to draw all that in just 72 hours! The game is amusing. Good job!

Apr 18, 2016 @ 9:06pm

I am impressed at how much you got done of the art. Good job.

Asturk says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 9:09pm

This game is much beatiful in graphics and its well done as a point-e-click game! I think it could have more itens for more harder puzzles, but as a gamejam its very good the way it is now! It has a very nice humor and mood to it, i just think you should made a button to quick pass the mouse dialogue, it take a lot of time sometimes to see all the texts dialogue again because of a missclick and this can be annoying! But very fun and beaultiful game, congrats!

Biliogadafr says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 9:12pm

Wow. Thats a lot of graphics! ... and 3 days of work almost without sleep... sounds like something that would kill me if I try :D.

Adipson says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 9:15pm

Yes ,i did it in 72 hours after the annoncement and begin at zero : white paper, pencil, scan ! I have not the time to do all what i want of was very just because i passed a lot lot lot of time on the graphism... 3 hours sleeping saturday night, 3 sunday and all the rest with coca zero, coffee front the paper and the computer ! thanks for your comments and suggestions !!!

Very impressive animations for a jam entry. Well done.

I would like to be able to skip the texts especially when I read the before.

Cerno_b says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 5:45am

It's a fun beautiful entry, well done. The art is really amazing. I never tried hi resolution games in AGS but it seems you made it work without trouble.

I found one bug though: After cutting the wire you can still get electrocuted if you touch the wire on the balcony. That had me second guessing whether I missed something else, but I solved it in the end.

okoto says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 6:36am

Funny game, yea 72 hours are not enough kk

Adipson says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 8:27am

@Cerno_b thanks for the report ! yes i forget this action ! but congratulations for completing the game anyway despite this small electric against time lol

@all thanks you for your coms and vote !

I really like this game... cause I love adventures vey much... but the most important thing I love at this game are the impressive artworks! Wow! Nicely done!

Madball says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 9:43am

Well that was fun. The puzzles were sometimes obvious, sometimes not, but interesting and not difficult anyway. The ground shaking animation was annoying. Also, I'd like to be able to skip through text when I click something for the second time.

Graphics were excellent. Animation doesn't look smooth, but drawing so many things in 3 days is respectable already.

By the way, I got electrocuted be clicking wires in water after I cut the wires.

Adipson says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 9:43am

@qkcik you had the chance for the soundtrack, I almost sing and do everything with the votes (jingles, music, ambient sounds) ... but I have not had time to realize all that .. .but it sure if I could, it would have made you bleed from the ears! then it's a blessing in disguise! lol

@Strike ... oui, ça et l'expression quand on parle à la poule sont deux petites subtilités bien française lol

@ thanks Psychomnster

Very impressive and all-round well made game. It's a bit slow for my taste and maybe it's not the most interesting use of theme but it was great nonetheless.

Cool game. Lot of work for 48 h!

Adipson says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 9:00am

@AnaGF, not 48, it's impossible..;i did it for the jam in 72 ( 60 hours to make it ;) ) thanks for your rate :)

Cool point and click game ! Really funny !

The OS/X and Linux links are pointing to the same file as the Windows link, which is containing Windows-only binaries.

To make OS X and Linux binaries, you have to compile binaries targeted to those specific platforms.

Apr 20, 2016 @ 2:54pm

Those graphics are really impressive! It's a nice click and point adventure. The adventure is quite short and the riddles quite simple, but its still great work for that short development time.

EdoMiyamoto says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 3:14pm

Heya, very good point and click ! I like the design you did on characters, and level design is good too !
Sounds may be a bit repetitive on level two, but it's ok.
Cheers from Grenoble /o/

Adipson says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 4:26am

@tsjost yes, i let only the Windows version finally on download thanks for your report for Linux

RealityCheck says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 10:54am

Absolutely amazing graphics for a Jam game. I am in awe ;)

My only real gripe about the game was the long waiting time for dialogue. At least I couldn't find a way to speed them up, and sometimes when testing things I had to wait long times reading the same thing again. The puzzles were ok.

But, what really made this game stand out was the amazing graphics. The sound was also very good.

Adipson says ...
Apr 21, 2016 @ 3:26pm

@Reality, don't forget the POSTMORTEM file for cut dialogues ;)

merzlot says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 10:21am

Really love the art, but the screech of shapeshifting mouse sounds infernal. :D

Fabraz says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 3:07pm

Getting a major Moorhuhn vibe from the art, any Germans here know what game I mean by that? :)

A great point and click with impressive graphics in such a short amount of time! Well done

@neilcorre2k6 thks ! yes i am alone, this game was made by 1 person only

Bon jeu point and click ! :)
Les graphismes sont très léchés et les anims bien sympa.
Et le frenglish ça a son charme :)

Apr 23, 2016 @ 3:24pm

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Adipson says ...
Apr 23, 2016 @ 4:04pm

@LeoM à partir du moment où je fais pas saigner des yeux à cause de mon anglais, ça va lol
@Freank it's ok ! i did it : thanks !

Hey, another AGS game!
Really cool stuff man. Your art... well, I don't know how you did it in such a short time span. Really amazing.
Your animations were also wonderful, especially the transformation animations.

Apr 25, 2016 @ 12:32am

This will be one of the games that I keep forever!!!! Please continue to make updates! I could not stop laughing and I liked the idle sprite where you asked to vote during Ludum Dare!! the art was incredible and THANK YOU THANK YOU for the save feature! Excellent game

Adipson says ...
Apr 25, 2016 @ 6:25am

very cool fin_nolimit ! thank you !

Husky says ...
Apr 25, 2016 @ 8:26am

I like the humor and breaking the fourth wall sometimes, it gave me some kind of feeling like the old adventure games! :D

Adipson says ...
Apr 25, 2016 @ 9:11am

@Husky I do have a lot of influences from these old point and click games like Day of the tentacle, Monkey Island, Maniac Manson, indie etc ...

I work for 4 years on a game project in point and click who will not have to delay to get out of steam, gog etc which should please you, so if you are ferrus of point and click' old style ... To monitor my game project, you can be on www or on my twitter account @Adipson_Studio

Awesome ! Much too short, I need badly a full version of that wicked game !

StaNov says ...
Apr 26, 2016 @ 6:36pm

Loved the graphics! The last puzzle was a bit tricky. I didn't spot the chalk besides the wires.

Excelent work, sir!

puppetmaster says ...
Apr 26, 2016 @ 7:05pm

Great point and click game! Love the humor!
Congrats for your cool game!

Apr 26, 2016 @ 9:51pm

The artwork in this game was terrific. I found the pacing and dialog/movement speed to be a bit frustrating, but the puzzles were fun. Extra points for the Al Bundy for president sign.

Aaranos says ...
Apr 30, 2016 @ 1:50am

The game has a very mobile look to it.

thebrainfuse says ...
Apr 30, 2016 @ 9:45am

Very Impressive... didn't know that AGS had this much power... will probably try it out in a future jam.

Adipson says ...
Apr 30, 2016 @ 9:50am

Yes ! AGS is very performant ! the only problem is it compils game only for windows and not for OSmac or Linux ! :(

LeReveur says ...
Apr 30, 2016 @ 3:17pm

Ha Ha je ne suis pas certain que tous nos amis anglophones vont comprendre la totalité des blagues, mais c'était amusant, et niveau graphisme c'est impressionnant, même en seulement 60h. Bravo. :)

Steven Pinto says ...
Apr 30, 2016 @ 5:32pm

Well firstly I must appreciate you for your work, really well done in such a short time and you being alone.. the quality is amazing :D
That being said, a lot could be done in game design, feed backs and other such aspects. Overall it doesn't really connect to shape shifting, but I understand.. as you have made an adventure using shape shift as a them and within such a short time period.. just another what i would suggest is, probably give the freedom to the player to skip text, as its would be convenient if the player has to meet the character again.
Anyway all the very best (: I liked the mouse-bat xD and good job on the BAT(weapon) from the walking dead, nice touch there. :D
Hey who do you think that guy killed in the last ep of the walking dead? :p

May 6, 2016 @ 10:34am

The art was pretty good! Sounds were okay, but a bit tinny.

Last puzzle was tough until I thought to myself, "Hmm... I haven't used my bat-form yet this screen... OH! I should've been looking UP!" which was clever.

Nice Walking Dead reference... Also liked the Married with Children poster. Nice little adventure game, overall.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
