Five Days To Die: A Hospital Mystery

by terryg - Jam Entry

Mrs. Slitherkins the snake wakes up in a hospital -- burned, poisoned, and very confused. Confined to a bed, all she can do is accept the visitors who might be trying to murder her: a ruthless businessgiraffe, a slippery penguin, and a panicking mouse. Help Mrs. Slitherkins endure the jabs of a rabbit, uncover a conspiracy, and fund her ice-skating dreams -- all in the five days before her death.

All artwork, story, and music were created during the event.

Thanks for rating my game and ya we may have it a tad fast, its hard to balance. I just played your game and it is amazing. Story was great it flowed seamlessly. You should keep up the great work

I really liked the game. The drawings are well made and the gameplay is as simple as it should be. Menus could be made a bit nicer.

Very good game! Really like the art and the music. Story was genuinely interesting. Not really clear about the ending though. The part with the random antidote and the officer was a bit unclear. Are there different endings?

Yes, Decent. There are a few different endings. If you use the updated game, you can talk to the penguin more and get a different ending. The file ludum37.txt from github shows you all the endings (well actually the entire story!)

Very clever writing, funny dialogs. The artstyle is very original too. I really liked that one.

I liked that some of your choice affected the story and the dialogs, and especially the ending. There was some good humor. Game was a bit static though. The music helped setting the mood though.

Nice game, good job!
