Sunny Penguin Games presents:
Jack Trekker - Somewhere in Egypt

DOWNLOAD HERE!


"Now that's how you fucking make an introduction.  Great stuff."
-Vince Twelve

"While the protagonist wasn't really my cup of tea, the game itself was very enjoyable and chatting with the three dames did produce some laughs."
-AJA

"Definitely among my favourite OROW games, all time."
-Pablo




Help Jack Trekker, egomaniac ladies' man and stereotypical adventure hero, escape the tomb of the Three Sisters with the legendary Dildontus relic!

With suggestive dialogue and a terrible influence for a protagonist, this game is sure to be one for the whole family to enjoy.

Originally created for the eighth One Room One Week AGS competition 2013. The game has since been updated with added credits and all bugs (that we know of) have been stamped out. Hopefully.

Features:

* Traditional point and click adventure
* Original storyline
* Animated cutscenes
* Original soundtrack and SFX
* Douchebag protagonist
* Free

I was impressed at how much you got done in a week! After the introduction I was like "I bet they ran out of time to make an actual game" - and I was totally wrong :D

Nice work! ^_^

Cheers, Ben! Thanks to my time at Uni I can put together an animation pretty quickly - although the real headache came around when I tried to get it to work in the game. It was all originally gonna be 1024x768 but for some reason (I think because of the high frame rate) it was all very choppy. Took me HOURS to convince myself to lower the resolution. As for the rest, pretty much no sleep and touch and go.

Although I think your latest podcast has inspired me to allocate my time better in future haha. We live and hope.

That game made me laugh heartily from start to finish and adore it deeply. I endorse Jack Trekker madly. The charm is irresistible. I'd like something more like this please.

So that I can rip some more mad hardcore indie gaming in it. Bro.
BOOM!

Kudos on that opening animation, it made me laugh a whole bunch.  The game was pretty fun too, and I liked the puzzles!

That settles it then. FULL 10 HOUR JACK TREKKER GAME. I'm not even joking. BOOM!

That would be great. The game DOES NEED extension. :)

I could never decide if the game was too naughty or not naughty enough. Probably the latter. :)
Anyway, liked the game a lot!

Jack is a man of steel. But I'll certainly consider incorporating many 'ways to die' in the next one. I myself find that kind of thing quite funny.

Yes, please extend this game a.s.a.p. It shows great potential.

I already beat the game, but what was the point on the message in the scroll?

with the scroll you can transcribe the hieroglyphics above the Dildontus which gives you a hint on how to beat the game. But you don't need the hint to beat the game - just a nice extra. You really just have to look at the scroll and this activates the chance to do so.
