My game was awarded 1 cup by the AGS panel..

Awesome!

Inspired by this outstanding achievement, I decided to go around The Block one last time and do something I should have done a long time ago..

And that is make a promo!

Check it out:

It appears I do things in reverse order: I release the game, then fix bugs, and finally release a promo.

Enjoy!

Trivia:

  • The video contains actual footage from the site taken a few years ago. The council said the caravan was an eyesore so my bogan uncle erected a corrugated iron cover over it.
  • The caravan still exists today hidden somewhere within dense overgrowth, similar to the lost temples of Cambodia.

Reminder:

  • Don't forget to leave some feedback and vote you lazy bastards!
  • Note that the game actually includes 2 cups in it as inventory items, which is a subliminal message when it comes time to vote.

One day in the far future, and explorer will find it and declare - "Look!  We have found it!  The fabled lost caravan of Monkey424 - it really exists!"

Looks very cool.

But you've obviously stolen ideas from Adventure Island.
