Don't Worry, I'll Bring The Beer!




Download here
Direct link, in case you don't like itch.io


A short and simple point-and-click adventure made for itch.io LOWREZJAM 2017. It's a bit lacking in story and puzzles, since I mainly wanted to experiment with really low-resolution graphics and animations, but there's some weird symbolism and odd situations here and there. Hopefully it will bring a few minutes of fun.


Made by:
Hobo: Graphics, writing and scripting
Cino: Music and testing

Thanks to Lemonhead for the "Extended ALARCOST (BASS) 1.4" template and Strazer\Rui 'Trovatore' Pires for the KeyboardMovement v1.02 module

Sure, it's probably a bit too half-assed and unfinished for a public release, but I'll PM it to you.

Nice game, Hobo! I love all the little animations you've put into the scenes, they make them feel alive. So many details in so few pixels!
And for such a short game, there's so much attentions to the menus too. Unfortunately, adventure games rarely have the option to change the player's speed these days, so it was good to have it here.

It was a really short, but really nice game!

Thanks Cassie and lorenzo.

Yeah, it's a feature I would've appreciated in multiple AGS games over the years myself and it's certainly going to be added to all my future games, no matter how short or long they are.

What a fun little game. Great upbeat music. I'm impressed with how much atmosphere has been created with so few pixels.

Thanks, Two Tales. I was actually surprised by the amount of screen space I had at this resolution, I was expecting it to be much more limiting. Only things I really didn't have any room for were longer conversations and a proper dialogue system.

Thanks, selmiak and josiah1221! It certainly exceeded my expectations, I guess people still enjoy point-and-clicks.

Depends what you consider lowres :) Unless it's for another gamejam, I doubt I'll make another 64x64 game, but since I can only draw pixel art, then according to modern standards all my future projects will certainly be pretty much lowrez.
