Steamed Hams: The Graphic Adventure
« on: Today at 00:50 »
I made a fangame based on the famous Simpsons segment "Steamed Hams", using sprites based on Simpsons Arcade and Maniac Mansion (NES)!



You've invited Superintendent Chalmers over for lunch! He'll be here any second and is expecting a well cooked roast!

Fortunately, you have been preparing just such a roast all morning! Hopefully you don't accidentally burn it and set certain events into motion...

NOTE: This game is intended as more of an interactive experience than an actual game. For those of you looking for an actual challenging adventure, ignore this game. It never happened. It doesn't exist. These aren't the droids you're looking for. Move along.

Very nice Steamed Hams adaptation!

And it's so cool to be able to just play the game directly on the GameJolt site. Perfect for bit-size games like this.

Wuhu! Very fun little game :)

Thank you for using the web port!  ;-D It's good to see more people using and finding out how well it works. Curiosity, the title music you rendered to an ogg file?

Thanks everyone! :-D

Indeed, just a cheeky stereo mix recording of the midi played in a media player!

I really love the web port, thanks so much for making it! My one complaint would be the way it handles fonts seems to be noticably imperfect:





These fonts are right out of the Tumbleweed template so I figure a few people will be hit with this issue. ScummVM has very similar issues, and I see you've already mentioned font problems in your initial post about it.

Also, when I host it on my own server, keyboard input works fine. But when I host it on GameJolt, keyboard input very very rarely works (I've only seen it work once).

To sidestep these issues I reworked all text to remove the * character, and compiled a slightly different version of the game which replaces some of the graphics saying to "press any key" to instead say "click anywhere", as I had a pretty strong feeling people would avoid downloading extra files if they could, so I should try and make that version as robust as possible!


But all in all, very minor gripes and thanks again for making it! :-D
