I'm not sure twice the hours is a good thing, but twice the "wonga" is definitely a good thing. So congrats on the promotion! :D

My state is on fire, and without going into detail... I've been having an insane week. Smoke is keeping me indoors pretty much, so I am very very grateful to have MAGS to keep my mind off things. Love what's been done by everyone so far!  :)

I got a promotion at work which is great because it means twice the hours and twice the wonga, but unfortunately it seriously cuts down my free time. I'll still try to complete my entry but it may be much more simple than I initially intended.

Dude, that isn't a promotion. You got cloned.

Opened up the game and got a bit of work done on it today. Not sure if it was positive work or not, but at least it is work....

Thanks @slasher! I played your game and really like it  :grin:

I got stuck though, and I don't know what I'm missing. I'm assuming its me and not a bug:

Spoiler: ShowHide
I found enough clues where I can only go to the stage and the basement. The stage is empty (though he does say Hi to the girls, but they aren't visible). And I can't seem to do anything in the basement. I recently grabbed the broom.

Ah,i need to disable stage talk if girls not there., in fact you should not go there if they are gone (new upload).. what places can you now go to?

You will auto go to basement when you have all the clues etc etc

Did you check out the face? Can you go Madame's?

That's the trouble with randomness.

I downloaded it again. I'm not talking to missing girls on stage anymore.  :smiley:
Still stuck though, is it me?

Spoiler: ShowHide
I talked to everyone and have the broom. I'm able to go to the Madam's office and the Basement. Madam left to call police, so her office is empty. I can't figure out how to move along.

i have just updated download... couple of tweaks..

Once you have completed all girls dialogs including haunted and stone face you will not need to return to stage after leaving.

Have you checked the rosters and looked at all the files in Madames'?


Can you stay with me for a while?

EDIT: 14th Sept... New version uploaded..

I just finished it. Very nice entry, Slasher. I didn't encounter any bugs. The dialogue and pacing moved along without a hitch.

I have a shell of a game done (yay!) I'm hoping to have time to go back and add actual walk cycles, animations, cut scenes. So it actually looks like a real game  :grin:
And I'm adding an old-school score element because why not.

I played this game on Monday. My impression is that this is probably one of the best releases Slasher has done to date and among the best MAGS entries I've seen. A few quirky solutions to puzzles but otherwise well-paced, a good difficulty level, good story and objective and hits the theme on the bullseye. I might have more to add during the vote but really good work, Slasher.

Still a chance I might get my game in as I have a bit of spare time available without work or wife at home over the next few days.

While the wife's away Mandle will be free to make a game  (laugh) Here's hoping... not had a game from you in a while....
