**Note: Yes there is a lot of words. This is an INTERACTIVE VISUAL NOVEL. So reviews that say there is a lot of words, that shouldn't be a bad point, Take this for what it is, not what you expect it to be. Thanks.**

Created for Newgrounds Game Jam 4.

Team Mohawk Dairy!

Our handicap was that all graphics had to be created OUTSIDE of flash.
We went with a hand drawn and scanned, classic retro feel.

Everything was created in 72 hours.
The story was written in 72 hours.
The art was done in 72 hours.
the code was written in 72 hours.

Hope you enjoy.

Can you get All 4 endings?
True ending is the best.

Pretty fun

It was fun and im not going to go over all the same stuff that everyone seems to say... you know what needs to be fixed already and have addressed those issues.

For being made in 72 hours im impressed. The only thing I didnt like about the game was the amount of text. I know its a interactive visual novel but damn there where some points where I just kept clicking and clicking to get it over with. The lack of checkpoints was partially responsible but putting in a little less text and more action. A little more interactivity as well... I cant help but thinking of Goosebumps choose your own adventure books while playing games like these but those books had an insane amount of endings... this only 4 :(

We wanted more endings and choices and such, but time constraints, you know?
Keep an eye out for another games, similar style, but more interactive, and better overall..

Long

There is so much writing and would be better with noise.. also a "replay choice" option instead of playing the game over and over for diff endings


tenentenen responds:

72 hours, bro.
All those things are true, except the text part. This is a visual NOVEL.
checkpoints will be implemented in a later game.

Well made.

The only problems I noticed were:
When you shoot the groundskeeper, he shows up alive at the end anyway. That COULD be handwaved by saying he never actually died, but then Marsh references things Norm told him in the 'don't kill the groundskeeper' option.
When the radioactive chicken shows up, one of its wings gets cut off by the background.

Other than that, there were no glitches, no real storyline errors, no control errors. You did a great job making this out to be a parody-- assuming this was your intention, of course.

(P.S. Would you mind including an alternate, keyboard control scheme for the next game? I'm sure I'm not the only one who prefers that to mouse clicking.)

Parody is what we were going for.
There will be enter/space advancement options in the next game.
