THE BUM - Now available in German!
« on: 26 Apr 2013, 00:19 »

The game tells a story of a homeless man who communicates with the world using an old sock on his right hand. He's a huge football fan and plays it a lot near his backalley. One day he gets mugged by a wandering bully and loses his precious ball in the process. Now he must pull himself together, team up with a local superhero, find a new ball and confront his oppressor again.




And so here it is, folks! The idea for this game was conceived six years ago. And now, after five years of toe wiggling and wall staring, and one year of actual production, we have the GAME. It was a long and very personal journey. We hope you'll like what you'll play. Please do let us know in the comments!


DOWNLOAD THE GAME HERE
HAVE FUN!

I just spend a lot of time in front of the computer, and of course I did not make the game alone, you know. Parafia is the author of all the graphics.

Enjoy the game! (laugh)

I'm just past the first few puzzles, but this is potentially one of the funniest, beautiful AGS games I've ever played. Gorgeous backgrounds and animation, and good writing... it's a love letter to retro adventure games.

One little oddity- the floating "under cursor"-label-thingy repeatedly clips the font outline. In a game with such obvious polish it really stands out; it looks as if the GUI region isn't big enough for the label to fit:

You mean the top of "f" letter?
