Two guys in a short comic book-styled story. Who are they? If you figure it out before the ninth and last panel, you might reach a happy ending.

You need to make the right choices and, occasionally, think quickly - very quickly!

Sort of a new chapter to our Game Comic "Strip ’Em All" - a more simplistic game but the same kind of short story with a punch-line.

I loved this, the surprise ending was pretty cool. I would like to see more options though.

well done! good twist at the end and i loved the noir feeling of the story. please make more of these!

@Jriikola, i don't think you can call a game too easy if you beat it at your third attempt ;)

AthleticDesign responds:

Thanks :) I hope I can persuade Daniel to do drawings for more games but we'll se - he is quite busy making (excellent) Swedish super hero comics.

Stunning gameplay! I love the plot twist at the end and the art style. It has great replay value and although short, it's beautiful.

AthleticDesign responds:

Thank you! We hope to make more short stories in this style, though I can't promise all will have quite as drastic plot twists... I'm kinda relieved that you enjoyed the gameplay as well and very much appreciate your kind words :)

I think people need to reconsider the effort of an animated comic strip such as this. Amazing work!

Why? Well because I love the simplistic yet detailed art style you have going on here; also your interactions creating game-play made this even more enjoyable rather than watching a simple cartoon. It wasn't long before I became truly immersed.

And lastly; I love the plot twist at the end. Hahaha

Great work my friend. 5/5 & Followed.


AthleticDesign responds:

That's great to hear! Though I thought the plot twist and drawings were strong enough, I wasn't at all sure that the execution and interactive parts would hold up. I'm very happy that you think they do :)

Too easy. I beat it on my third try, though I'm bad at games like this.

The first try was quite funny, I didn't guess this is about running… ;)

AthleticDesign responds:

Hey, no spoiling please ;)
