Wilfred:2088
A very short one-room game for Feb. MAGS 2018.

It's the future, and a transport spaceship's A.I. wakes to find everyone on board unconscious. She can't do much as the computer, but
luckily she finds she's not alone.

Includes music, sound, voice... and possibly bugs :P

An A.I. as main character? Amusing!

A really delightful little game. I didn't come across any bugs. It seemed very polished to me. I've never played as an AI before either, so that was very cool. The voice acting was also strong.

All in all, the whole thing worked really well and was good fun. Great job! :)

Just played through and it was really cute and fun!

I did find one slight glitch:

After game end if you choose not to exit the game the bottom interface bar is still available for use.

Hi HanaIndiana

I thought you did the graphics very well and I like the story and of course the cat (laugh)..

Game play wise it was quite good, though I did not particullay like the mouse.SetBounds part..

Overall I enjoyed the game, which could have been made in less than a week.. but I'll forgive you (nod)..

All in all a nice little game...

selmiak: Hints and Tips would be a better place, don't you think?

some explanation for the mouse.setbounds would have been nice, like a short range laser or so. I tried luring the cat close with the laser right from the start. But would this message pop up every time you move the mouse out of the bounds? then it would have been annoying. maybe with a timer on repeated steps over the bounds.
@ slasher: feel free to spread the vid to the hints and tips!

Excellent points slasher and selmiak. There are definitely better solutions than setting the mouse bounds. I was hoping maybe it wouldn't be so noticed?... oops. That was pure laziness on my part, I admit. :)
As the end of the month grows closer I take many shortcuts.

Need help. Can't get the cat out!
Finally saw the video. Good voice acting.
Would make a good Nancy Drew

What a neat concept for a game. Considering it's basically an one room adventure, it had quite a lot to offer. Great voice acting and writing, as usual from your games, and it's also nice to see the pixel skills improving with each MAGS release. If anything, then I'd probaly work on the UI a bit and make it more streamlined. The less clicks and cursor movement it takes to navigate and open/close the windows the better it usually is.

And congrats on the MAGS win!
