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! :)

Good demo

This has potential, I have read and enjoyed Slaughterhouse Five so I understand the references. For the full game put more destinations, fix the bugs etc.

This is cool.

This game, like you said is pretty buggy. I couldn't even reach the end with all the bugs. I can't wait to see it finished ^^
Taking into the account the hours put into the game though, and the amount of thought that went into this, I really think this deserves an 8/10.
Anyone who read the book would understand this. Though I read the book years ago, I can still somewhat understand ^^
I like the game, please finish it!

Hmm..

I hope you continue the game and finish it. It is really good and tricky. I finished it.
The only slowdown I experienced was when i walked around the german camp.

I like the game. The only reason I'm giving you 9/10 it's because is unfinished.

I rated 5/5. It's awesome, you just have to think.
