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! :)

As a huge fan of Slaughterhouse-Five

and Vonnegut's works in general, I'm probably a bit biased in writing this review. If I hadn't read the book and didn't know any of the story, then I'd probably have given this a 1 or a 2. The controls are very smooth, but it can be a bit glitchy at times. However, I don't remember the last time somebody on this site tried making a movie or game out of a great piece of literature, and I commend you on trying that. Hopefuly when this is finished, it will be much more playable. But, until then, I think that only fans of the book (such as myself) will get any kick out of this. Hope this helps!

For one, the quality could be much better.

Also, There were glitches. Its unfinished so the glitching will not affect the score i give. It also has no meaning whatsoever. You are a lone man who must wander in areas mainly confined to a small task that is seemingly impossible to do after the first task of which takes a bit of travel through time. You just make it so indescribably hard to compose any way or form of me to tell you how bad this was. Overall, I like the one German Prisoner Camp's soundtrack. That really is all. Hoping to have more reassuring gameplay in the full version rather than meaningless wandering.
