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! :)

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.

quite entertaining

I found this was a pretty good game
the only problems i found with the game was
1] the german POW camp always seems to lag
2] the time you go to the dining hall and theres the black line in the middle of the screen and you can't move

Now what i really would like in this game, is a completed version, because I find its not only visually appealing with the art work that suites the game, the thinking required, andalso the music for it works quite well to set a slight tension to it
So please either finish it
