Man Giving Up (MAGS September)

My second game with AGS is probably not really a game. It's an.. um... interactive piece of software?
Whatever it is, it only takes a minute or two to play!

castle level is the best. I'm still interested in the chocolate upgrade!

Where can I purchase the upgrades? :grin:

The Ultra Graphics were amazing.

I got a high score.  I have the power.  I can imagine Selmiak doing a fangame "Don't Press The GiveUp Button".

This was... interesting.  There was most definitely pointing and clicking.

To continue the retro-feel I will say: ROFL!!!

Spoiler: ShowHide
In space noone can hear you say "I GIVE UP"...


Truly an epic game!

Well, this is of course the free version of the game. The retail version comes complete with chocolate level and access to space man and knight man, all for a mere $79.95!

Selmiak's seminal "Don't press the button" was a big influence on me :D

And yes, I was careful to make the Space level accurate to real-world physics, a detail often missing from fancy AAA games ;)

Your attention to detail is what makes this game truly great. :=

Put me down for 5 copies of the full release.  I will pay in frozen fish if that's okay with you.

So glad you guys liked it!

I was worried I may have been the only one to find it funny... ;)

Originally I was actually going to make a walk cycle for the space man and others, but making walk cycles is hard, so I... you know, gave up. :-D

Nice game, wrote an article for it on the AGS Blog http://ags-ssh.blogspot.gr/2014/09/i-give-up.html

I have to say the Space music so goooooooooood. And I really liked the small details sound-wise, like the waves. Generally I really liked it, and it put a grin on my face, so well done sir. DEM ULTRA GRAPHIX THOUGH.
No more military army stuff. I'm alive and back.

Awesome, thanks Dualnames :)
It took me WAY too long to get the waves working, so I'm glad you enjoyed them!
