Coffee Quest

by Big Cow - Jam Entry

Embark on an epic point-and-click adventure for a cup of coffee so that you can face the daily update meeting.

Click to walk around, interact with objects and people, select dialogue options, and to move on once you've finished reading a line of dialogue. Press 'exit' to access the menu. Saving and loading is untested: you won't need it, you'll finish the game in less than ten minutes.

Written and developed by Daniel Black, art and animation by Ben Moss, audio by Robert Shaffer, designed by all of the above.

Made without a single line of code using Adventure Creator for Unity.

Nice graphics.

My two favorite things in this world are adventure games and office jokes. So to have them together is just grand!

Great job!

If you were to extend this into a bigger game, I'd be your first customer!

Do tell me about the stamp collection "blah blah blah". I wanted to save him :<

Funny story otherwise, nice theme and graphics combination!

Ha that was great. Loved the music on each level, and the slowly dawning realisation of how much of a jerk I am. Also the last line was great. Top notch!

That's pretty interesting. I'm not a big fan of point&click games but, being objective, i like it

What an entry!

At first I wasn't feeling the sketchy look, but it immediately grew on me. Plus the janitor looks exactly how I imagine he would.

Very funny. GFX in this style totally does the job and animations are cool (like pickup stuff etc)

At the beginning I was not convinced about this game but at the end I loved it, it's really fun and it applies the theme just perfectly, congratulations a really good work

Hahaha this is so good! Brilliant writing! I really like the graphics and music too, they're rough, but in a really charming way. Not sure that this relates to the theme though, the protagonist sounds perfectly relatable to me ;)

Humor is a 5 just for the last line.

Haha, had a great time playing your game. Could be me before I have my morning coffee :D

Wasn't a fan of the art when looking at the screenshots but it really works when you play :)

Great take on the theme, awesome ending. I would have like it to be more challenging, but it was fun to play.

Who knew a simple coffee run could start a devastating turn of events. Absolutely loved the humour in this plus that ending had me in stitches.

The game is short, sweet and to the point. Oldskool adventure; I love it. No code, you say... I gotta check out this Adventure Creator for Unity thingamagick.

Nice visual style. I like the use of color. I think it needed just a single line of code. Just one line somewhere :) J/K really funny and the music is great. It keeps you hooked.

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.
