by amodo - Jam Entry

** If you REALLY get stuck ... there's a hint in the comments somewhere **
The first "puzzle" is a little mean, I apologise for that.

...

I made it!

This time life and lack of sleep got a little in the way, again, and so I went for the extra time in the jam. But I achieved what I set out to do: make a tiny adventure. It's tiny, but I think it works and it even has an end! I had planned to put more story/content in there, but as time was ticking away, managed to scale it down a little and have a working game without (I hope) loose ends.

I made all graphics and code from scratch, apart from the Flixel framework. I used Flash Builder, Tilestudio, Photoshop, Red Bull Cola and of course Autotracker.

Hope you like it.

Cheers!

Interesting game, with some humor in it. Couldn't find the endgame tho. Good luck to others!

Brilliant game! Very well done! I got stuck for a little while though [hint]stare into space[/hint]. The dialogue was funny and I liked the Monkey Island reference :)
... I'm looking forward to part two!

Bonus points for the Monkey Island reference!

Nice complete little package but just a little too short.

fun, the best part was bugging you on irc about the kitten dialogue.

Once I figured out how to get things started it was a lot of fun! Love the little sprites too, really nicely animated.

Awesome game! The animation was really really smooth and looks fantastic. The dialogue was interesting and funny too :)

Also, nice work on including a kitten!

Great game! I enjoyed this one a lot.

Ha! Fun interactions. Meow indeed.

Very nice puzzle, took me a while until I solved it.

A little too short, but given the context of the competition, it's fine :-D The animations where excellent and I liked almost everything except for such a slow start.

Wow, wow.
I never saw such a game.
I really really really liked it.
I would be really happy if you'll make another game like this one :-)

Brilliant! Lovely characters, great graphics and cute story.

It's really difficult to figure out how to get past the first bit, though. I think you should have made all of 'space' clickable, not just the right-hand edge.

NEEDS MORE STUFF! :-)

Hmmm... Space... thinking about other worlds... but nothing happens... am I stuck or am I suppose to contemplate the existential qualities of the imagination. Observing the fact that my character does not exist in reality but does in my thoughts. The separation between my world and the world in my imagination he in habits but can never leave. Just as I can't inhabit his world.

Absolutely brilliant! It could have been a pretty simple and forgettable game, having such a small amount of assets and all, but the great mood, the adequate dosage of humor, the science and philosophy allusions, and the way you put them all together into a cohesive and entertaining story easily turned this into one of my favorite LD games so far. I'd also like to state right now that Kitteh is by far the best character in any LD entry I've played so far. Thanks for this!

That kitteh charmed me!

Is there any goal in this game? Nevertheless the dialogues are quite funny and the graphics and sound are very good.

SLiV says ...
May 4, 2012 @ 8:26pm

Awesome! The kitteh is adorable. A shame it's too difficult for me, though.

Nice combo with the president and the query-kitty. I enjoyed it.

I didn't know what to do.

Nice. At first I really thought the game was made on AGS. Now I want to create this kind of game on AGS ^^ (I mean topview point and clicks)
Nice and funny!

Nice music and visuals. The conversation tree was a bit annoying, having to restart the conversation with the president every time i wanted to try another question.

amodo says ...
May 7, 2012 @ 7:51am

Yeah ronsho, I noticed that during testing. Unfortunately after the jam :)

That's really... philosophical. And fun, but a little confusing at first.

castor says ...
May 7, 2012 @ 9:26pm

Not too sure what to think. I like the graphics and it has a nice theme match.

May 12, 2012 @ 10:12pm

Good one, Amodo! A scumm adventure with a reflective mood? Ha!

Nice little point and click adventure game. Got lost for a bit because I didn't know where in space to click (right edge). For people who are wondering, there is an end screen.
