An Anxious Awakening
« on: 02 Dec 2015, 04:14 »
Hello AGSers!
Over the last week I worked on a short game for a jam. Would love if you would check it out.
Story pitch: A woman is called into her boss' office with her job on the line.

Thanks a ton, and if you enjoy this feel free to check out the other two games I've made in AGS this year.
Also maybe check out my website, www.reismahnic.com

Here is the link to the game's page: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/1987/

I clicked the link in the post thinking that maybe it's on the website but I don't see it there either

Help!

Stuck on second puzzle:

I click on the winsetup and I get an error: unable to launch 'BusinessDreamJamGame.exe

I can click the .exe file and it opens but not in fullscreen mode. I will guess that you can:

fiddle with the settings in the acssetup.cfg but I don't know which one forces a fullscreen

I hope the puzzles get easier!

Ahhhhhh...It's because the author has renamed the game manually after compiling I believe. I've made the same mistake myself.

I think if you edit the .cfg file and change "BusinessDreamJamGame" to whatever the current game name is then it should work, but don't quote me on that...

Yes, my apologies, that is definitely what happened.
I've uploaded a new build in which that isn't the case, so feel free to download that.
Also make sure you are putting it into a separate folder (not playing straight out of the zip folder).
I'm glad that my puzzles have proven to be so tricky, I will continue to perfect my approach to design through confusing installations. :grin:

Ok, I played the game successfully!

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
interestingly, it was more of a story and dialogues rather than being a typical puzzle-based game

It reminded me somewhat of Throw me in the River from  a few months ago.

Cheers

Thanks for playing, Shadow1000!
I'm glad you played both of my games, and found some stylistic similarities.
The same composer worked on both as well.
