The Fabulous Screech

This very short game has a peculiar background. A few months ago I was approached by someone called Angie to create a present for her boyfriend, Matt. Money being short, this was to be a combined Christmas, Valentine's Day and anniversary present. He was a fan of my games, especially the ones set in the Lands of Dream, so this could be a really special gift for him. Now, this isn't how I normally work, and there were other things I was supposed to be working on, but how can you say no to being part of something so sweet? So I said yes.

I thought a bit about what sort of game to make, until eventually it became clear to me that I needed to go back to Oddness Standing, the setting of The Book of Living Magic, and make a game about one of the most memorable characters from that town. Strangely enough, it probably ended up being the most personal game I've ever made.

How to play:

Use your mouse to click on things. That's really all there is to it. To have fun, play slowly and examine the details. Note: there used to be a mute button, but a cat ate it, so now there isn't one. Well, there is, but you wouldn't want to try and get it out again.


Thank you for making something like this. Please, make another one.

This was terribly sad... but I loved it. Thank you for sharing this.

You tell a good story dude, even if it makes people cry. The artwork was superb by the way.

Every bit as good as any of the other lands of dream games.

I played this game originally about a year ago and it stung and made me cry and hug my cat for the next hour.

I decided that, despite how much I did love the story and how it stuck with me, I wasn't going to play it again until I truly needed it. And today, I did need it as my beloved pet cat of 14 years passed away in her sleep while I was petting and comforting her.

It still hurts more than anything, but this game made me feel a little more at peace about it. And I just wanted to thank you for making this game.
