Yikes! I dare people to use this pic as a desktop background!
You do have an uniquely amazing style, feels both creepy and captivating. Can't wait to play the second chapter.

Thanks, it's going to be the second-and-third chapters in one - the complete story!

Thank you. I think he's kind of cute.

I think your neighbor needs a hug! Just not too hard because you might pop out his eyes.

The Gouger gouges!

Big progress lately on the puzzles. There is an end in sight.

It reminds me of a Pixies' song.
Could you tell him to get that spoon away from our eyes?

It's a carving tool which he primarily uses to make dolls... however, there may come a time towards the end of the game where we see the Knobbcrookians defend themselves.  :X

Augustus the Combustus has some O'Sirus-caused chest pain. The white part will be ultra-jiggly, which is why it has less detail.

Amazing design as always! Are those question marks on his beard-like area?

They're parts of the Knobbcrookian flush swirl, a symbol for bankers. :)

Was just thinking to myself these graphics remind me of the Bloodlust game in my youth when ... it's the dude himself! (laugh) That style is unmistakable. New game looks amazing, dude.

Random Bloodlust memory: guy upside down with a funnel up his ass while it's raining nails. Ah memories  ;-D

Ahh the good old days of making super-cheapo mini-games with Troma. Gutter dev has never been more fun.

Dude, your art is pretty and crazy, it's amazingly consistent and I just watched the youtube videos from your channel. I am intrigued. And I like you like colours. Your game is very colourful. I like green. And your characters they look a bit like made from offscourings, from a scrapyard, I don't know if it's the intent, I feel it is, which is cool and they would make cool toys.

Thanks! The junk theme is completely intentional - the Knobbcrookians are basically "junk golems" and all have some element of metal since they're the "scissors" in rock, paper, scissors. That lore will be explained in the upcoming chapters. I agree that they would make cool toys and it would be a dream come true if I had a shelf full of these guys. One can dream!

Here's a walkthrough of Chapter 1, which shows off all of the new visual additions (including major color corrections using a monitor calibrator, smooth scrolling, multi-layers, Snarky's world bubbles, etc...) and some player-friendly changes. A few bugs still to fix!

If you've been interested in the art but aren't sure what the heck this thing is all about, I'd suggest watching a few minutes of it and seeing if it's your speed. Chapter 1 is 100% free and the next content updated (the final 2/3 of the game) will also be free. I'm doing this for fun:
