Title: SALARYMAN

When every day is the same - work, sleep, work, sleep - don't you want to break the cycle and just drop a vending machine on someone?



Salaryman is my upcoming, mostly done, almost-definitely-will-be-finished return to the wonderful world of AGS.

Guide our potato-headed hero back to his loving family across a crooked world filled with weird characters who will help or hinder you depending on how you treat them.

Multiple puzzle solutions, different paths to different endings and optional/hidden areas!

Slapstick fun abounds, with minigames and secrets, and a whole heap o' retro fun. One click interface - no verb tables! Textless and intuitive - no language barriers!

Stands at roughly 70% done right now. Probably out around June/July 2020.

Have a look at the trailer, and I welcome your feedback. Hope you're all having a good day! Don't work too hard...

I'm also dipping my foot into social media for this one, here are two for a start. Give me a follow/likes and so on if you can! Not much there at the moment but there will be soon...

as ugly as the main character looks, he is totally fitting for the overall style of the game and the trailer makes it appear as a fun game! Keep us posted plz! ;-D

The character art style reminds me of south park. Looks good so far, keep it up!

I love how insane this looks! Always a big fan of weirdo world-building, so I'm looking forward to your release.

Ugly?! He's considered classically good looking where he is from. The arrangement of his head pipes is the height of sophistication.

Thanks for the comments guys!

The video is great! Nice soundtrack too.

Looks like a very original & crazy game. Good luck with the project!

The cahracter is ugly, but his animations are really good and in general the game looks really good even though the initial reaction is not the same!

Salaryman now has some social media pages, where I will be posting regular updates and silliness. Original post has been edited to include the links. Check me out on twitter, itch and gamejolt. Cheers!

Looks cool. The style reminds me of Beasley's Deathtrap.
