The bystander

You went hiking on the mountains, when suddenly you hear thunders in the distance. Fortunately, there seem to be a little town in sight...


Another little something made to see what Bitsy is capable of. It's an exploration game, with a couple of puzzles here and there. This one is longer than "It came from outside".

Arrow keys to move. Bump into things to interact with them. Step on doors to enter them (when possible).

Again, thanks to wjhollyart for his help and support! He also made me know the "Image to Bitsy" tool, which I used to import the drawings of the close-ups. Check it out!
A big thank to Pandoryk, who allowed me to use his music, and to add the thunder sound effects to it (helping me to circumvent the "no-sounds-allowed" limitation of Bitsy)!
Hope you enjoy the ride!

Additional note: with some computers (laptop ones, from what I've seen) players may experience lag in some in-game screens. Unfortunately, this is a Bitsy flaw when it comes to displaying screens with lots of tiles. I'm sorry that I can't do much about it.

(Anti-frustration tip: should you die, there's no need to do again what you have previously done. All puzzles give you hints about what to do, and once you've got that knowledge, there's no need to solve them again).
A lot of people told me that they couldn't hear the game's soundtrack. I've tried playing this game in Chrome, and heard nothing too. I've tried with another Bitsy game which has sound, and heard nothing as well. My guess is that, as another Bitsy game dev told me, these problems are caused by the latest Chrome update. If you can't hear any sound, try using another browser (Firefox works for sure, afaik).
Fixed the spelling mistakes. A big thank you to CsoiretgeFsM, who did an impressive proofreading work and helped me to fix those mistakes!
Whoa, Frontpage! Thank you very much, guys!!

Nirag responds:

Thank you very much! Hope you'll like my next games, too!!

I loved this experience. Those people sprites were somehow extremely unsettling even before I got killed by one of the murder people.

Nirag responds:

Thank you! I'm glad you got caught in the atmosphere! :)

Amazed at what fear and thought this game could do with a green (and little white) color pallet and a few textboxes.

Nirag responds:

Thank you!
