Why don't you head over to the MAGS thread, also play Mandle's game and then cast your vote for your favorite?

I just got finished played the game and now I must check in at the "Inn Sulin" hotel that I imagine exists somewhere in Creamville for my detox...

See you all in a day or two after room service finally stops telling me to donut try ordering any more desserts...

Haha cute game!  Enjoyed it, as did my little girl, and I'm sure that Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkles and Rainbow Dash would have as well.

Loved the light and fluffy game with disasters and quite a dark sinister turn at the end!

Amazing graphics, good writing, nice puzzles and suitably upbeat music.  Great stuff!

I downloaded and played this game.

I absolutely, ABSOLUTELY loved it!

The backgrounds are stunning. They pull you into a candy world using vibrant colours and depth. There were times that I felt my mouth watering. The animations are just gorgeous. The puzzles are cute and just perfect for the game. The puzzles are not difficult so I was thinking that this game because of its candy theme would be a GREAT introductory game for children who want to enjoy point and click genre adventures. What blows me away is how such a FLAWLESS game was made in such a short period of time. Even some of the best MAGS entries have little glitches or rough edges that can be overlooked because there just isn't enough time for complete testing and revision. There is NOTHING about this game that indicates that it was put together for a contest with a deadline.

Congratulations to both of you, Cat and Miez.

I echo what Shadow said.

It's a very accomplished game, a treat for the eyes, and I love the mouse cursor. Is that a familiar face peeking out of the workshop?

Thanks guys! We are really happy to get so much positive feedback :)


About the ending:
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
I just want to point out, that while the game ends in chaos, it's not really THAT bad. Sure, everything is a mess (and Canelle's handbag is now probably damaged beyond repair), but noone was hurt and they just have to clean up A LOT. It was also due to the topic of "Natural disasters" that we wanted to include more than just the eruption at the beginning.

So, considering this, if there ever were to be a sequel, it would have to be

a cleaning simulation :P

How about Truffle Kerfuffle?

Loved it! It was funny, it was clever (the Italian cuisine quiz was my favorite), and if the game doesn't win next years AGS Awards for best graphics & animation, I'm going on a hunger strike. On top of the lo-carb, no-sweets diet that I'm currently tormenting myself with :P So yes, it was extremely fun to at least watch some virtual sweets. I was also in the mood for more saccharine after watching "Wreck-It Ralph" again the other week. It also reminded me a lot of that happy song from way, waaaay back:

Finally got around to playing this after having played a little on your phone Cat, It's really sweet! Also very well polished for a MAGS title. I've not finished it yet, I'm stuck trying to get Polo out of the toffee :=

Lovely artwork Miez :)

*edit: Finished it, the ending section was really fun ;-D Amazing to think this was created in one month.

In the beginning they ask why Toffee is not a doughnut like her dad, and then they say her mother was probably eclair :).
