Stool Pigeon

by jcsirron - Jam Entry

Stool Pigeon

You are the lead interrogator for the PCPD: the Pigeon City Police Department. Your job is to crack the really tough cases and get hard-boiled pigeons to squawk. You never even have to leave the interrogation room: you get handed files and perps all day long.

Ask pigeons pointed questions about the crime and watch them sweat. Get enough details right, and they’re sure to crack.

ok. now i see why you guys were cracking up all the time. this is funny. i also love how the quit button doesn't work. you just keep getting cases pushed to you. Great job! I found it a bit hard to figure out how to get better at it. Seemed kinda random. But that's also what made it funny.

I like the theme, it is very funny :D made me laughed many times. Similar with Terryg I couldn't figure out how to get better at it.

Great use of the theme with nice humour. I couldn't crack a case, but still enjoyed playing it nonetheless.

It's a bit random but I did manage to get one victory, or I assume it was a victory.

Since you have no idea what something is going to lead into answer wise it's more of a memory game for when you finally get a clue.

Interesting take on a choose your own adventure. I wished there was upfront info on the case and/or more feedback from the pigeon than making them sweat, so I could have a better chance of asking related questions. As it is, picking questions felt random.

I did crack one case, but i found myself laughing repeatedly.

I sent this game to a friend of mine who's a big bird fan, (even owning his own pigeon mask) I'm sure he will also get a kick out of it.

I was very confused about how to figure out the right thing to say. I tried to mouse over the possibilities and clicking when I heard a pigeon sound, but that didn't seem to work... =(

I like the concept of a cop interrogation with pigeons! Maybe some more information on the case and some more feedback of the suspect would make it easier to know if you're going into the right direction or not. Also some music would be great!

Keep up the good work!
