Oko Bokog, a timid, kind-hearted sakwa, lives peacefully.  With the help of Kiri, his curious, adopted human daughter, he has rebuilt his life after a violent tragedy.

"...the story and dialogue is well written, and the personalities of the characters are believable thus making it is easy for the player to feel sympathy for Oko and his plight. ...its genuine atmosphere and sincere characters provide for an enjoyable and immersive experience." - JD, JD's Adventure Game Blog

Congratulations on getting this finished!  I remember first seeing sprites for these characters years ago in the CL so it's a real accomplishment to finish the game after so long.

Have downloaded but it will not unzip properly. Problem seems to be with music.vox file as the other two will unzip. Is there a mirror or anything?

Indeed broken. Besides, the game was renamed afterwards because the setup is looking for test.exe... Nothing that can't be worked around but still... if you're updating anyway, might as well fix this as well.

[edit]
When you use winrar and select "Keep broken files" when extracting it will extract the vox file and play with sound as normal. I'm not sure if it will cause unexpected behaviour elsewhere in the game though (I'm not that far yet).

I do miss the voice acting though... (no speech.vox?)

Thanks for letting me know that, guys.  Any way to rename the EXE properly?

Two ways:
1. Create a new game with the new name and compile it, then use that game's winsetup.exe
2. Create a new game with the new name, close AGS, overwrite the folder contents with the old game folder contents, recompile.

The text that's displayed in the game window's title bar can be changed in the general settings afaik, but the exe's name is determined by the game folder's name.
Fail at Floaty Rog' now!  still having to deal with what games are going through

How long did you work on it exactly, MoodyBlues?

I started working on it during the summer of 2007, but I took a long break from it.  All in all, it took about 6 months to make.

Astonishing, I still remember that "tree woman" sprite in CL. D'loading now, and congratulations in advance for finishing it.

Thanks for the support, everyone!

Just out of curiosity - has anyone made much progress on it yet?  Anybody stuck?

I've completed the first quest and took a break. Definitely will go back to it though.

Found a slight textual glitch...

Spoiler: ShowHide
After moving the snake and trying to cross the river with Kiri in follow-mode:

-Oko: Kiri, please do follow me into the river
-Kiri: Why not?
-Oko: Because there was a snake in there.

The first line shoud read "Kiri, please do not follow me into the river.

I think I found a problem...
Spoiler: ShowHide
 The line "Kiri, come with me" pops up after I had finished getting the vial from teh big water atapi when I talk to Kiri.  The first time I clicked it, the game crashed.  Subsequent times did not do that, but I was wondering if that line was supposed to be there at that point of the game?
Great game by the way. ;D
