ATTENTION! THIS IS A DEMO, THIS IS NOT THE FULL GAME.

OUR INDIEGOGO IS LIVE! CHECK IT OUT RIGHT HERE:

Clam Man is a game about the Clam Man. He was originally called just Clam Man, but then we started calling him THE Clam Man like he was Batman or something. He isn't. I love when they refer to Batman as THE Batman by the way. Sounds way cooler.

Anyway, this is a game about THE Clam Man. He recently got promoted, now working as a junior sales representative at Snacky Bay Prime Mayonnaise. Snacky Bay is the town where the Clam Man lives. That's just a bit of lore for you. It's called worldbuilding, ever heard of it, ya dingus? Haha just kidding. You're a cool dude for checking out this game. You're no dingus.

Anyway, this day is going to turn out like no other for the Clam Man. You got to believe me on this, my friends. Things are going to go DOWN. Just play the demo and you'll see what I mean. It's nuts.

Unfortunately the screen size doesn't fit my computer. I couldn't reduce the size. But it seems to have nice art, I just can't play it!

Oh no! What are you playing it on? We've heard some laptops have issues running the game. The downloadable version runs fine across all platforms, though, so hopefully this is only an issue with the browser-based version and wont be a problem for the final release.

Very nice demo! I really enjoyed the writing. I hope to see the finished version of the game.

I enjoyed the game's humor with wacky sea-life creatures. It was silly, and made me smile a couple of times. I did not expect the boss at the end to do that to Clam-Man. I thought it was going to be somewhat of a happy ending; I also thought it would have been longer. I was slightly disappointed from the game not being a bit longer, so hopefully it'll be released with more content.
-4/5

Man, that ending was incredibly sudden. I was hoping to play something interactive after the intro was finished, but I did enjoy the dialogue a lot as there were some really creative and funny jokes.

If I had to pick any favorites, it'd be all of Wendy's dialogue and the joke, "Since the pages have yellowed all the pictures are in color!"

I love the art style and dialogue, it's hard to say much about the sound and actual gameplay as the only audio I really remember is the song at the end and the only gameplay is just clicking through dialogue. The feel of the game reminded me of both Rocko's Modern Life and Spongebob, which is a pretty fun combination.

marafrass responds:

Thanks for your kind words!
The game is going to be a very casual thing, and some people have even called it a visual novel. However, there will be choices that affect the story in the full game, and puzzles to break up the dialogue here and there.
So yeah, the final game will be more interactive but it's definitely designed to be a more relaxed experience, one that pretty much anyone can play!

And I'm really glad you liked the "yellowed pages" joke. Sometimes it's really hard to know if a joke is just funny to me or others, too. :)
