Don't Drink the Pink




A short game made for the January 2014 MAGS competition "Something Cold, Something Burrowed, Something Pink".

Team behind the game:
Everything except music: Hobo
Music and Testing: Cino
Testing: Atavismus, Peder Johnsen

Also thanks to Ghost for the "Lightweight BASS Template v2.0" and abstauber for the "CustomDialogGui" module.


So, if you're up for a little adventure and imagine yourself enjoying a simple story about a man, few pints of pink and occasional elephants,
just click on the AGS database link or download it directly from HERE

Thanks to everyone who played and/or commented! I had a lot fun making this one and I'm highly motivated to start developing another AGS game (hopefully bigger, longer and uncut).


Also: Thanks for bringing back CHILDHOOD TERROR!
You're welcome. It's always nice to evoke childhood traumas memories in people.

i didn't comment at the time, but i liked that game for what it is : a very short game with simple puzzles, but an immersive set.

What a fun and clever game, I liked everything about it (except that it has an ending ;))!

I'm really looking forward to your next game(s).

What I meant was that I would've prefered an endless loop ;)

It's good to see so many people playing and enyoing the game, it has certainly gotten more attention than I thought it would.

What I meant was that I would've prefered an endless loop ;)
I actually considered making it an endless loop at some point during the development, but I was afraid it might end up too confusing.
Maybe I'll add it as an optional feature when I update the game.
