I'm kinda working on my own stuff... but I'd chuckle if someone made a game that starred a literal white elephant (anthro or otherwise).

This game was so brilliantly random. (laugh) My son and I finished it, but we're wondering:
Spoiler: ShowHide
do the little X's in the top left corner of every room do or mean anything?


Also:
Spoiler: ShowHide
my son's the biggest fan of Butcher's Dog now - air guitar all over the place when that came on (laugh)

Hi milkanannan

The little X's in the top left corner of every room returns cursor to arrow when clicked on and removes active inventory cursor image..

Glad your son enjoyed Butcher's dog  (laugh)

Thanks

I played it. It was really fun and funny and unexpected. Really original theme. Congrats...

Thinking of a more creepy first person style.



The 3d bit in the end may not actually be in the game. It would link it to my This is the Way.

Still have almost 2 weeks. No need for anyone to have anything finished yet.

My game has progressed at least. I should be able to have something finished by the deadline no problem. But the amount of content still is undecided...

I did actually complete a game this month for the Lowrezjam 2020. If I have enough time next week, I might spruce it up a bit and adjust it to fit the MAGS theme.

I mean, I've done two games with pink elephants, a white one sounds very enticing...

Of course I don't. My game would be kind of boring to post screenshots of at this point. Assuming it ever does reach a point beyond boring...

I think you should seriously find someone to work with... inspiration etc etc

I've tried. More often than not, something goes wrong.
But it's unlikely that even having someone to work with would change things much at this point since it's headaches and heat that are my main enemy.

What a sweet game! I love the graphic style, non-verbal communication and music. Well-designed puzzles. My only problem playing was that while I realize that being pixelated is part of the art style, it was hard to see some items or identify what they were as a result. Overall a nice experience. I know it's a bit off topic in this thread because it's not an entry in the August MAGS but there's nowhere else to post my comments!

I've had to make a tough decision. There's no way the game I've worked on would be fun, especially with the time left. So... I'm starting a new game. It won't be the most original, but it hopefully will be more fun.

So, anyone else have any kind of update?

Re: MAGS August "White Elephant" (OPEN)

Start a new game with only 24 hours to go? I like your spirit!

I’ll publish mine tomorrow. I just hope I can get a few last tweaks in.

24 hours? Wait. What? I'm pretty sure I have like 52 1/2 hours until the deadline. The deadline is almost always the end of the last day of the month, right before midnight in England. Which should give me 3 afternoons and 2 evenings to work.

What a sweet game...
Thanks for the play and kind comments, Shadow1000. I do agree with you about the readability, but the jam restriction of 64x64 pixels was pretty limiting and in hindsight I made some poor coloring choices. I did make the hotspots slightly larger for most things, so hopefully that helps a bit. And I think it's fine to comment in this thread, since it's basically a MAGS game in production and I didn't want to post it in the database before I it's MAGS ready.

But otherwise, the game is pretty much done, so I'll post it tomorrow for sure. Didn't have time to add a proper fishing mini-game, but managed to polish it up and add some white elephants.
