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! :)

Potential but...

A good idea, well implemented, but the numerous bugs, laggy gameplay, and the fact that re-entering the dininghall after you've had your meal freezes the game make it very subpar. And while the music does fit the mood, the one short, repeating track becomes incredibly irritating very fast.
