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! :)

So it goes...

Loved the book and the game was fun. Not as accurate as it could have been, but very close to what I imagined. 4/5 9/10

Interesting concept

This is as advertised - an unfinished game. It would have been really interesting to see the finished product. Great idea in adapting an amazing book.

Thanks for the words of encouragement! We are in the process of fixing the game as we speak. I'd advise you check back in a week or something.
