Premise

Nefasto, a game data, after the crash of a broken game he was living in finds himself within the depths of your computer. However this unwanted presence is creating a major memory leak that will provoke a crash of your system with epic proportions. Find a way to help that game data to avoid that demise with the help of the local datas and eventually meeting Noeroze.

Story

A playable game data going with the name of Nefasto - although he doesn't know that yet - is the main protagonist of a really bad game named "Kick The Can". While doing what any game data is supposed to do - beat the game with the player's help - said game glitches out and crashes. The game is so broken and badly coded it even fails at properly crashing, at dumping itself and at garbage collecting the playable Nefasto. The game data falls into the depths of your computer. The presence of the game code opens a window of the public protected data world where Nefasto lands. This unallowed anomaly creates a major memory leak that unstabilize the system. It is only a matter of time before your computer crashes entirely and Nefasto needs to find a way out so that he isn't deleted. For doing so he needs your help, the local datas and especially Noeroze.

This is projected as a commercial game. Well... It snowballed into a projected commercial game I should say.
I'm doing this on my free time for 4 years - mostly for creating the template. I will probably do an episodic game, unless I have the possibility to create the game entirely from begin to end.

Wow, the art style for the new screenshots looks brilliant. I really like the predominantly white backgrounds, the crosshatching and graph paper look is a winner! Your story sounds very interesting, if a little hard to read. Did you develop all the art yourself Nefasto?

Looking cool, Nefasto, the graphic style is improving!

Thanks you two.

... Your story sounds very interesting, if a little hard to read. Did you develop all the art yourself Nefasto?

Yes. I'm doing all the artwork (even the stylistic sucky ones of the game's introduction). Up until now I've been doing all the assets and code on my own.

Friends told me I have a weird english. So if there's something you think might be improved language wise to make it easier to read, I'm glad to correct it.

Having seen this in action at AdventureX, I have to say that words and pictures alone cannot hope to convey just how good this game looks! Everyone there was astounded at what you've managed to get out of the engine.

Any chance of a gameplay video/trailer I can show to others?

Very cool what I saw at AdventureX, thank you for being there Stefano! This game looks really unique and everything that seems to happen has this beautiful detail that really enhances the theme/story of the game. I can't wait to give it a go myself, so will be downloading the demo asap and giving it a whirl :)

AdventureX was really fun. The crew made a really good job. I had a great time.
The good reception of the game was a great surprise. There were nice and interesting feedbacks. I got enough data that will help me improve the experience. This really motivates me to continue on the development.
Thank you for everything.

I'm working on a teaser/trailer. It will get done as soon as possible.

Hahaha, nice illustration! I saw your presentation at AdventureX and also played the demo there a bit and it looks very promising. The graphic is great, the story and setting based on a great idea and it is amazing, what you have managed to do within the limitations of AGS. Looking forward to it!

After months of real life issues I had to tackle, I still managed to advance with the development of game on my free time. With the feedbacks I had, I improved some parts and some mechanics. I still have to finish a proper teaser video.

To thank you for your patience and support, here are some new sneak peeks with two screenshots from the PixeLand section and some NPC Character Designs.

PS: Also I cleaned up some screenshots in the head post. There were a little too many.
