Hi guys!

Football Game is out now on Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PS Vita!



A mysterious and atmospheric adventure game from the creators of A Date in the Park, Legend of Hand and Mudlarks.

East Bend, Purchase County. 1987.
You are Tommy, a local high school football hero in the town of East Bend. It's game night for the Purchase County Turbines and your sweetheart is waiting in the bleachers. Join Tommy for a night you won't forget...

Something is amiss...



Features
- A traditional point and click adventure game aesthetic with puzzles and dialogue interactions familiar to the genre.
- A cast of characters including friends, foes, teachers, and a concerned mother.
- A short, twisted narrative with approximately one to two hours of gameplay, depending on the player.
- Original soundtrack by UK duo JUPITER-C, available via Bandcamp

Inspiration?
Traditional point and click adventure games from the '80s and '90s, the music and films of David Lynch.

“Cryptic and creepy, Football Game is exceptionally well crafted and well worth the price tag to anyone with a love of Lynchian stories and Point-and-Click adventures that try to do something a little different.”
IndieHangover

“If you're a fan of the eighties and you like point and click games, Football Game is definitely something you're going to like!”
Dumee Gamer

“Football Game is an experience best gone into blind, but if you have interest in twisted, Lynchian narratives and have an hour free, you probably won't regret it.”
IndieGames

Hope you like it :)

Thanks,
Shaun

Thanks Stupot :) The cassette will be available soon, they are just finalising the cover design. Will post here when it's available :) It's pretty exciting that there is going to be an actual physical object associated with one of our games!

Finished playing it, I noticed a typo:

Spoiler: ShowHide
In the code door scene, when the guy say the knocking code, one on the "Knock" is misspell as "Kock"


Other than that I'll leave my thoughts about the game on the review section.  ;)

Edit:
Oh and I also bought the soundtrack  8-)

Just wanted to say that I played through this and it's a really unique experience, I went into detail in my Steam review but I can't recommend it enough for fans of David Lynch or the 'melancholic horror' genre in general. It's super creepy without shoving excessive gore in your face, great work Shaun!

Really enjoyed the uneasy, moody atmosphere here - the music, graphics, and storytelling (with a few very cinematic touches) all worked together very nicely to create that Lynchian tone. The puzzles were pitched just right too. I only regret not playing it at night! Well done Cloak & Dagger.

Thanks Pilchard :D I'm glad you were feeling the Lynchian tone!

My Steam review:

As a fan of adventure games and Lynch films, I absolutely loved this game!

The whole atmosphere is uncanny. Even the gift box is uncanny, it made me wonder what is in it during the whole game. Our not-so-nice solutions to puzzles help to build the tension of the story.

The puzzles are good. Everything we do makes sense, I needed to open the community guidelines only for the password one (I knew what the password was about, but only I wasn't sure about its format).

The soundtrack is great, I must say they really have a Lynchian vibe.

As a side note, I played the game with Nearest-neighbour filtering. I think it should had been on at default.
Games are art!

Everyone should immediately go out and buy Shaun's awesome game. It was already super cheap, and worth 5x what you'll pay when it's on sale. (And I've said so more seriously in a Steam review, I mean it!)

Whoa, thanks! I was needing an reason to plug the Switch on again :D

I finished it :)

Hello, I immediately apologize for my English. I wanted to ask, if you could share how you could in this game organize the character's movement in a straight line? If I set the "Walkable Area" too narrow, the character simply turns out to go if you don't click exactly on the desired point. I'm sorry if the question is stupid.

This looks really good! I'll purchase it for the Switch ASAP

Can I ask, how were you able to get an AGS made game on to consoles? I've been gone from this forum for quite a while and this is absolutely blowing my mind! I've read this whole thread and nobody has mentioned it.
Thanks! I look forward to this.

I just purchased this game right now because it look amazing and furthermore because it's inspired on David Lynch! I really look forward to play it today, I'm just missing two titles from Cloak and Dagger Games but little by little I will try to purchase them all! Thanks for your fantastic games, I wish one day there would be a chance on adding Mudlarks on Steam too!


:EDIT: I have just finished and absolutely love this game as I imagined. I like the plot because it's not linear at all and the end of the game left me with a feeling of sadness, amazing work once again!

Snake! Ratalaika Games ported this for Shaun, but I don't know what magic they used to accomplish this!

I love that photo eri0o  :) :) Thanks everyone that picked it up - super glad you enjoyed it Vincent (I loved Metaphobia!) !!!  :)

Matt is on the money, it was ported by Ratalaika Games. They are on the lookout for AGS games to port so if you have a commercial game feel free to get in touch with them! They've created some sort of pipeline where they are able to port AGS directly to consoles - magic!

Gigatun - off the top of my head, I can't remember exactly how I did this - I'll take a look at the code when I get a moment.
