Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Oh no! You've been falsely accused of stealing Fluffy Flufferton's super special (and very secret) stash bones! Worse yet, he knocked you out and trapped you in his basement. You'll have to use your better-than-human eyesight to find clues about who the real perpetrator in... PUPPERTRATOR.


P.S I couldn't export to Mac so instead I've made a Web-only version that should run on every platform.

This was great, very stylish interpretation. I liked the graphics and audio, nice entry!

One of the most polished entries I have seen so far, good job!

Only complaint was most of the text was split up a bit weirdly when being showed so reading it felt stilted.

Oh would be nice with a sound for when you click on things.

Great graphics, nice theme, well done overall. This looks like it could be published almost as is!

Overall, above average. Technically sound, good delivery, ran great. Would have liked the text delivered in a somewhat less intrusive way though.

really fun story with a surprising amount of depth for a jam game :O got several laughs out of me.
"That's a picture of It's me!"

Really well put together! I couldn't figure it out though, read all the articles and then just brought forced the solution.

Very cool - great art, nice details, the text was very funny. I had a little trouble following the puzzle logic from the clues, although I eventually blundered my way to the solution. Music was awesome. Plenty of humor in this world you created. Nice job.

I liked it! It looked great, didn't take itself too seriously. And that music was smoooth!

This was amazing, it reminded me of all the games I used to play on the computer through CDs like Putt-Putt and so on. I had a hard time figuring it out so I ended up forcing the solution but I looked through all of the articles and things. The ending dialogue was great but honestly all of the dialogue in this was genius. I loved the graphics too and the music set a really good mood.

Brilliant graphics, music and theme. But it is hard to find out what need to do in first scene.

Chup/5 all the way. My favorite part was the cursor, super slick.

The game runs pretty slowly on FireFox, should've used Chrome like you suggested. I loved the snap sound effect at the beginning. Very cute game. I'm not great at mysteries, ended up guessing it lol.

Artistic, with funny comments XD I think it's very well polished, great job.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:17pm

Graphics are so cool and music ambiance works really well!
Deep story to discover, I'm now a real inspector! :)

Good job!

Really loved this across the board, great graphics, audio, story, writing, and pretty much everything. It took me quite a bit of figuring out to solve, I knew who it was, but I was convinced it had to do with the bone rather than the thing it turned out to be.

Not much I can think of to offer in criticism. The only thing I can think of is that the graphics did this weird jittering effect as I moved the cursor around the screen. Sorry if that seems like I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel, but that's all I could find any fault with.

Probably the most polished game I have seen so far. Good job on graphics and music!

Dec 17, 2016 @ 4:04pm

Cute graphics, well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Very enjoyable! The whole thing fits together very nicely and this format works really well for Ludum Dare, I think. I appreciated the LD-related jokes as well. I almost wish it had some Space Quest 6-esque narrator to complete the whole package...

Dec 29, 2016 @ 4:58pm

super well done, and great presentation. I think I might be a good detective because I just went with the first one i saw a picture of... doggy instinct.

I also included this game in an article of my favorites!
