Cornelius Cat in: The Uncontrollable Pest
« on: 08 Sep 2015, 21:07 »
An uncontrollable pest plagues a village and the only one who can help is Cornelius Cat's Pest Control.
Take control of the finger puppets and help to solve the mystery!



Get the game here!

This game was made for OROW 2015 and features
  • Hand-crafted finger puppets and backgrounds
  • Cling film animated water
  • A cute and hillarious story

The resolution of the game is 1280x720. If you encounter any display problems, please run winsetup.exe and choose other setting options.

On a side note: Yeah, feels good to finally release a game again... it's been quite a while.

If I had allowed myself to vote in the OROW, I think this game would have had my vote. Very charming game :)

Your game has been my choice for "best game" too. It's so lovely!

My only critic is the slow speed of the characters.

This was my favourite OROW game, both thematically and in execution. A great use of felt!  ;D

Thank you so much for your kind words ;-D

About the slow speed: This is almost the OROW version, just with added credits and a fixed typo. Changing the walking speed would have required to have a look at all scripted cut scenes again, because of the timed entries and exits of characters. To be honest, I just finally wanted to release the game :P

I'm tempted to get my 4y old play this one... all it's need if WHAM's "no text" implementation to be perfect for any kid! (nod)
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Now that I've played WHAM's game, I agree that his "no text" implementation is awesome. Maybe I'll try something like this for my next game (whenever this may be...)

Highly impressive that you made this in one week.

To be honest, I'm much quicker at crafting than at pixel art - if I were to draw all this stuff, I wouldn't have finished the game by now :P
