Agent Thursdayby cageinabird - 48 Hour Compo Entry
A game about an undercover cop making his way through a murky criminal underworld.
In each scene, find the clues and talk to people, then piece it all together to work out who the boss is. There are three 'bosses' (Big Cheese, Chief, and Top Dog), but only one is the real boss.
Arrow keys to move.
X to interact with people and clues.
C to accuse someone with your gun.
H to check each clue you have uncovered.
M to mute the music if it gets too annoying.
I hope it's not too difficult and can be worked out, as it was hard to design puzzles of this nature.
Let me know if there are any problems with links/builds, or any showstoppers in the game.
All feedback, constructive criticism, unconstructive criticism, etc. welcome!
Edit: I've added a post-compo version for people who wish to play through to the end without enduring the slow dialogue. The post-compo version has the following changes:
- The default text speed is quicker
- Pressing either X or C will skip text
- You no longer have to find all items before making an accusation, but you will get a warning before hand.
- The player animation system has been redone (and is no longer an absolute mess).
- The hint screen has been polished.

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.
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.
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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.
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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
