Hey AGS people!

We (Dropped Monocle Games) are hosting a charity game jam! Exciting right?! As you may or may not know Autism Awareness Week is coming up on the 27th of March and we thought it would be great to release a charity bundle to raise money for the National Autistic Society.

There are no genre or theme restrictions, and your submission will be included in the bundle. 100% of the proceeds go to charity and we are excited to see what you come up with!

For more information visit www.droppedmonoclegames.com/tmi or email us at tmi@droppedmonoclegames.com

You can also follow and tweet us @tmi_jam or @droppedmonocle for the latest news and jam updates!

Thank you for the kind words :D

So another background has been finished, some new GUIS, loads of new animations, dialogue and scripting!
Here are some screens of some of the new stuff.

For your messy consideration!!!

Have you ever wondered how your room got so messy? In the aftermath of a party have you ever questioned the level of destruction "Did we really trash the house? I don't remember throwing a pizza on the ceiling, and why are there cigarette burns on my couch when nobody I know smokes?" It's almost as if somehow, overnight, mess and disorder have multiplied without your consent.

What if we told you that you and your friends are not responsible for the profanities scrawled in lipstick on your bathroom mirror? What if we told you that, in the wee hours of the morning when you are passed out in a dreamless drunken stupor, little beings we like to call Mess Goblins come out and dirty your home.

That's right my friends, you have a Mess Goblin problem.

Join the Mess Goblins on their first adventure with Dropped Monocle Games. As plucky protagonist Pippup Binbasher, it's your job to mess with Harry Flemming, a teenager who thought he could get away with hosting a house party while his parents are out of town.

Cause chaos, confusion, and disarray in the aftermath of the festivities. Let your inner Mess Goblin out and give Harry a hangover he'll never forget!

“Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history, unfortunately it might also be the last..."
- Stephen Hawking

Since the industrial revolution, mankind has surged forward in developing astounding technology. We create ways to connect with the ones we love, repair those who are broken, and destroy those who would stand in our way...

Our world is plunged into chaos when a corrupt military AI decides that Earth is wasted on humanity. Using an experimental virus against them, the AI begins a bio-war that lays waste to millions of humans, powerless to fight the plague sweeping the globe.

Your journey begins as PDU 5660, otherwise known as Serket. A medical AI programmed to assist the humans afflicted with the plague, Serket may find themselves to be humanity's last hope.

Can you find a way to shine a light on our animatronic hero's hidden powers? Do you have what it takes to fight back against the rogue AI? Without you, what will become of a world shrouded in the black smog of the Autoblight?

Update: February
