You've slept through the apocalypse, but someone's still gotta deliver the mail. A humorous short adventure of mundane work in a hellish scenario.

My first real try at an AGS game, based on a silly idea based loosely on a real job I had. I consider this a practice run to familiarize myself with AGS more than anything, so this isn't exactly ambitious (hence why there's no sound, for one). Nevertheless I hope you enjoy it ;) I welcome any and all comments, suggestions, critiques, and bug reports.

CONTROLS: Left click walks/interacts, right click examines/releases current inventory item. Move mouse to the top of the screen for inventory/save/load/quit.

Story, design, art, dialogue, scripting all done by yours truly. Contains Edmundito's Tween Module 2.0 and Ghost's Lightweight BASS 2.0 template.

If by "inspired" you mean "totally ripped off from", then yes, it is :=

I guess you didn't create that after the new MAGS "Extinction" has been announced? If yes, why not participate there? Armageddon for me is the most fatal extinction :O

No, I've actually had the idea for this game for over a year now, I've been working on and off again on the graphics and only just now got around to putting everything together in AGS :D I'm a terrible procrastinator.

Actually it sounds like you're a really good procrastinator! :grin:

What a fun idea for a game!  Grats on the release.

I just finished it. Nice little game. Cute character and story. Simple puzzles but worked well to create a first game. If you keep working on the project, put in some sound! Lots of good opportunities for effects!

Just wondering

I couldn't tell what the package was for the priest. The picture was not clear but it's an important element of the story. What was it?

Oh. I missed that reference. I haven't read much Lovecraft.

Nor me, but I figured it was well-known enough to not warrant too much explanation.
