Granny's Day Out

by Potato Dog - Jam Entry

Granny's Day Out, a modern point and click adventure game where you, the human, help the grannies escape the retirement home.

Are you a nice person? Will you help them? I hope you will.

Buttons:
Left Click - Inspect
Right Click - Use

Features to be implemented:
More grannies
A bit more explanation / guidance
More interactions and voices when you right click things
Even more grannies


Made by Potato Dog, which is one young male making games and having a blast in his room.

Made using Game Maker Studios.

I'm currently making a game called Cliff Parchment: The Mystery of Skeleton Lake, which you can check out if you fancy!

I love the art style of the game. Thematically nice fitting the life of Grannies in the Retirement house. Gameplay was for me mostly clicksmashing but it was worth it because of the funny ways of escaping.

I don't like installers very much in the first place. Love the art style and the humor of the game. Some things were broken (one granny walking over a closed door) and is a bit difficult to see if your actions are working or not. But funny overall. Good job.

I couldn't get free all grannies, but that was interesting.

I don't think this is the place to advertise your other projects, mate :/

Funny Point n Click game! The gaming Nurse kinda gliched out for me when i messed with the wifi (like leaving the screen and never coming back). But i still enjoyed freeing most of the Grannies.

I'm not good at point and click, but this is a little bit strange: I don't know what to do.
The graphics is quit original but still not convincing. Another thing: there's a grammatical error in the game.

Great artstyle! Love that you set it in a retirement home - so mundane but so interesting :D Very cute & I love the simple music of it.

haha fun idea. I like the artstyle. though eventually the game just devolved to clicking on literally everything
but good job!

I didn't manage to free all the grannies but it was enjoyable. Nice art style and sound.

Funny :) Not super intuitive to play and a little buggy (clickable areas stay where they started in some cases) but the voice overs made it worth it.

Amazing game! The art and music are all amazing!

Cute little game. I eventually ran out of things to click out. Couldn't figure out how to get the remaining grannies out of the room.

Loved the art style and the audio. But I couldn't figure out how to free all the grannies, namely the one sitting at the table, the one asking for his pants and the one at the middle armchair.

Cool idea yet interactions are little bit weak. I must admit point and click is not my game type either yet I really felt lost a little bit :D I spilled the coffee though! Good humor!

Dec 21, 2016 @ 8:13pm

Art style is fantastic and a really fun idea. Couldn't get every gran out though.

Dec 28, 2016 @ 9:41pm

5 star on the audio for that voice acting alone :) It's pretty fun finding the all the interactions, though I couldn't get all the grannies out :(

Great art! The mood is really nice!
I suggst to add some movements so that the characters feel more alive, but it looks great as it is!

Nice Artwork. I think it needs a bit of helping to guide the player. Good Job.
