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! :)

was their even a point to making this?

you said you made it in under 72 hours but why did you? nothing even happens, and if you had to go 45 hours without sleep then why do it at all?

Dude not cool.....

i like the idea of time travel but this..... is not how time travel should be....... it's confusing and the animations were so bad I thought I had accidentally toggled my graphicson low only to find it on high.... so next time I suggest focusing more on the graphics and gameplay and if need be forget the story line because if this is an example of a story driven game then I would rather suggest you create a senseless brawler
