FREE digital download / browser demo. The tale of Doris and the Dragon is an episodic, point-and-click adventure game series featuring an elderly lady named Doris who finds herself in Purgatory after passing away on earth.

The Tale of Doris and the Dragon can be described as a thoughtful and fantastical vision of life after death. On her journey, Doris meets many weird and wonderful characters that help or try to hinder her progress. Out of this, an unlikely friendship emerges.

The atmospheric and haunting soundtrack, composed and produced by AssadB, accompanies the minimalist pixel art work.

Arrogant Pixel are proud to call themselves an independent art studio. All content apart from the music was largely produced by one person

A brilliant game indeed. I enjoyed it!
A few suggestions I if may:
1- Perhaps Doris can ride in her trolly to speed up long travel.
2- A simple map system, maybe written herself as she discovers new things?
3- A companion (cat?) who could help her with stuff she cant reach or fit into.
4- Options menu also hidden near the inventory area so we can change quality, sound etc. as needed.

Great job, cant wait for the next ones!

Those are some pretty out there suggestions. WE LOVE IT!! In game options menu is a great idea. That's something that we will definitely implement in the second one. Let's put it this way - there are plans to give Doris an interesting mode of transport. Thanks for playing and rating!

Nice game, good music, good humour
But sometimes the music stops playing and its gets kind of quiet.

Thank you for the review and for playing. It gets quite spooky when it does that - we're attempting to fix it now. Sit tight!

EDIT: SOUND BUG NOW FIXED!! :D

Interesting game you've got here. Somewhat reminiscent of old-school Sierra games, except for a few minor issues. First, a bit of a yellow glint on the skeleton arm might provide a hint that you should look at it. The inventory menu makes getting the cliff flowers a chore. The path from the Overhanging Cliff to the Precipice is very small and easy to miss. Some of the dialogue trees are a bit circular, and finally? A more textual hint on the rib puzzle would be nice for those of us who can't play with audio. I look forward to the second episode.

What Follows Is A WALKTHROUGH Of This Game. Do Not Read This Unless You Want Spoilers!!
