Disclaimer

This game was intended as our first commercial game, after making the 2014 game jam game we thought it'd be cool to expand on the concept and try to put in all the ideas we had for the game jam. The project ended up being a bit too big for us to actually properly finish, we wanted to do so much more with the concept! Our team just wasn't experienced enough in making vidgams.

So yeah that's why we decided to release the project in its current state, hoping someone would enjoy playing it despite the rough edges!

It would have been cool to see this become a full game.

the watch idea is clever and detail. However, it blocks my sight sometimes and makes me hard to check schedule and time at the same time. In Fact, I won't simultaneously do that in the real life, but the fact that it's a bit hassle strongly make me feel "I'm in video game". But I really love the game other than that.

Fullscreen is kinda broken on Linux. Also, there's a really annoying sound loop... Other than that , it's a great game! Please check out the issues with Linux though...


Also you have support for QWERTY and AZERTY keyboards, why not do DVORAK as well?


EDIT: Turns out that annoying music is not a bug but an easter egg :P won't say how it happened so I don't spoil it for others XD

More than broken, fullscreen breaks the screen down : I closed the game, my screen keeps blinking ! X.X

I run Archlinux with Deepin Desktop Environment

super fun! I loved it

(-2)

I downloaded the game but haven't played yet. I think it might be cool. DO YOU KNOW DA WAY

Signing off-

Uganda Knuckles.

I loved the idea of an adventurous 3D space menu - I just wish every game had that. This is a great game for those who have low end computers. To be more specific, you can go to my YouTube About page (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClVDe_Ss73Z8gnfOOqkXB-g/about) to see what my laptop specifications are to get an idea.

I also loved the Wanted flyers! Haha! The jokes in the game are great! I definitely loved the aesthetics of the game, aka the flat shading. I feel like this game would be something I would look back on just for nostalgia. Oh, when choosing between social interactions, I find that they're too long. They need to be summed up. At least, that's what it seemed like what should happen. Maybe I'm just too used to playing games from Telltale. Anyways, here's my gameplay: https://youtu.be/I2hRLve288k


P. S. What do you guys think of my bathroom sign man on the bottom left of the thumbnail?

Hey man can you please let me know how did you achieve the flat shading ?

I had so much fun with this game and there is so much more content to it than I originally thought there was which was a wonderful surprise! I loved interacting with all the different characters and will definitly be revisiting this game. I did make a small gameplay video for it and if you got the chance to check it out I'd be very appreciative!

Am I supposed to have a Doom bar at the bottom and somebody sorta.. scatting throughout? 

ಠ_ಠ

can someone pleas help me? I go to the 3rd world where the ferry guy is and I can't travel any further than that. I would like to see the other places and collect the collectables. plz help!!!!!

You will have to talk to the ferry guy to go back to the start, catch an orange train to the Gas Station place and then catch a pink train to the lighthouse then a red train to the jungle and go on the zip line thing (i dont know what it's called) and you should see the 'esc' door, go through it and go through the center door, it should open when you get close enough. After that you will have to walk through a cave with lightposts and a bamboo jungle and down an escalator you should see train there, get on the train (the doors will open for you) you will travel to an ice land, get of the train and walk towards the man and his hot air balloon, he will tell you what to do from then on! Have fun!

Public Transports.. PFFFT. Kill. Me. Now. Good game nonetheless xD.

I really enjoyed the game! At first I didn't have much expectations, but then it was very fun to explore worlds, catch trains and meet strange characters. The atmosphere is surreal but also cute, I really like the design and the colours. The characters are very cute and different, they reminded me a bit of Miyazaki's animations. I found only an object near the lighthouse. I experienced 3 crashes with the trains (for example I was on the train and the second after I was on the rails. Also sometimes I got stuck with a dark screen when I entered the "dark" world with sea creatures).

It would be interesting to add more worlds, or to add more missions and goals, also to know more about the different "worlds" and the characters around ;) and i reallyy didn't copy this from anothe person beacouse i think he's rigth

I think it's a reeaaaaaaaalllll nice game

Looks cool, but can't get it to work on Linux D: (Using Ubuntu 16.10)

Just get a black screen and an a-wooshing (Maybe this is part of the game, but it doesn't seem like it)

The game keeps breaking for me after the 3rd stop. The music keeps running but the screen is just pitch black and nothing loads

Same problem with me (Mac OS X 10.12.3).

Very cool game, absolutely in love with the art style. Decided to make a video on it (^:

The art style in this game is incredible. Whoever picked the colour pallette is a genius. This makes me want to learn how to make games in Unity, just for fun.

Okay, so im doing a project soon, and its been bothering me for like two years, what was the shading process you used to create the menu portal? Seamlessly spawn an enterable room in space like you did.

Interesting game guys! I just now saw the updated version of the game... I wish I got it. Oh well... pretty cool game though!

that good

Somehow that's the best and most creative Game I've ever played!

This game was really strange, but really interesting at the same time. I wish I could have recorded more, but I didn't keep track of time that day I recorded. I like the music, the references, and the various locations!



Here you go another Video.


Tell me if you guys like it!

funny!

Love this game and it's concept of exploration! ended up making a video about it and another game because of it's uniqueness. Hope you give it a watch and enjoy it :)



Brilliant! I managed to get to the end (despite a very laggy cable car section) and I would certainly play it again. So yeah, a good one. Would love to see it "finished". :)

This game is awesome!

...and weird

I did a lets-play on this :P (I LOVED IT!)

It's a good idea for a game. however it can include a lot of waiting.

Hi, I really enjoyed your game, but I also noticed some bugs, like falling through the floor of the train, conversations with the child-like creatures tend to trap you in the conversation or freeze the game and other small things with the menu doorway, but overall good concept, I especially liked that you made eccentric beings for the characters, it gives the game, well, character, thank you

I fell out of the train, then i fell out of the map, my hand glitched, send help.

A lot of time for this, very well made!

This game was so fun to play! I really liked the art style/graphics of the game. I made a Youtube gameplay video on it. Here's the link if you wanna check it out! Thanks :)
