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! :)

Interesting though confusing

Nice concept and gameplay, though the plot doesn't really make any sense

Love it but...

I absolutely adore the concept behind this game, but it IS really buggy and I do hope that you intend on fixing it up because the finished product would truly be magnificent.

Please finish

I like where this is going, please take the time to finish it. Big Vonnegut fan, I wasn't sure how you would approach this. Looks good so far. I naturally want to give you a 10, but that's unreasonable. Wrap it up and you'll get it.

Also, here's a drawing of my asshole:

So it goes.

I love this book, but....

The game needs to be finished, really buggy. I enjoyed the experienced but its like eating chinese food, you finish the meal and later your wondering why your still hungry...
