Help Lifeguard Larry Deluxe save the fat kid who apparently is going to drown in a minute. Get him out of the pool safely to win the game.

This is a text based adventure game enter commands in the text box at the bottom of the screen and read the responses. This was made for the first Newgrounds Game Jam, the theme was Summer Heat. The Game Jam was completed in 2 days start to finish.

Just a side note. Some of the team is working on polishing this game up and changing it's format to a point and click adventure game. When it is submitted it will be linked here.

If you don't like the text controls on this version of the game you should try the point and click version... /portal/view/543457

Good ...

...but not great. The commands are to case spaciffic that you need complete sentences to do action in the time alotted. On a more positive side, the art and the writing were great. I'm surprised you all made this in 2 days!

I will come back to this and update it eventually I'm sure. I didn't have time to test it really well and if the system was refined a bit more I'm confident it would be game that could be a lot better.

Okay, but not great

It's tricky to work with and you're timed, making it more intimidating. However, there are fun game elements so it's worth a play.
