EDIT 3: Thanks for the frontpage, to many of you, the kind words and the constructive criticism! There's at least one major update still coming!
EDIT 2: Fixed the ending cutscene. Still to come: more detail for the Dresden area and some UI stuff to make the game more user-friendly.
EDIT: Fixed a bunch of bugs, including one that let you skip past most of the game content. We strongly recommend you retry the game now. More bugfixes and stuff on the way.

Listen:Billy Pilgrim has become unstuck in time.

This game was made for the Newgrounds Game Jam 5 contest. We had to make a game based on a work of literature in 72 hours. Naturally, our team chose to adopt Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five.

NOTE: THE GAME IS UNFINISHED.

Yep, this is unfinished and buggy. You can theoretically play from start to end, but expect visual bugs, a severely underdeveloped area, a non-functional inventory and a bugged ending cinematic. The game is in an unfinished state due to the over-ambitious idea and the exhaustion of me and the programmer near the end of the whole ordeal (45 hours without sleep are not fun).

THE TEAM:

Programming by 4urentertainment
Character Art and animation by JKAmovies
Background art and 'direction' by idiot-monarch
Music by Nayhan

We hope you manage to get some sort of enjoyement out of this! :)

Im gonna be nice since it's unfinished.

You have good concept of time traveling to gain items to advance further into the story and learning more. but.... i can find many bugs and the girl blocking your path in your own house, What? couldn't she just lock the door or something. i get it's unfinished but you have many details to think over.

I love it

I haven't read the book, but i think i have an idea of the concept. Just great that you can have flashbacks whenever you want.

Please finish

I like where this is going, please take the time to finish it. Big Vonnegut fan, I wasn't sure how you would approach this. Looks good so far. I naturally want to give you a 10, but that's unreasonable. Wrap it up and you'll get it.

Also, here's a drawing of my asshole:

So it goes.
