[RELEASE] The Purity of a Child's Boredom

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, here's my game: The Purity of a Child's Boredom.

 

I think the Showcase Weekend is a really good idea, and it makes me wish all jams did that. For the last jam I participated in, I ended up playing every game and posting about my favorites. It was super fulfilling, even more so than making a game. Looking forward to doing that this time too.

A weird little curio, I enjoyed poking at the edges of it!

 

EDIT: woah!

I just looked at my desktop and had a little surprise waiting for me! Very cool!

I like this a lot. Really well executed the way it unfolds, and the seamless way the music syncs up to the action. Surprising and entertaining.

Excellent haha. I had a lot of fun pixeling out that nice chunky Rio.

This was really delightful. I didn't know what the heck I was doing but I had fun doing it. Great audio and visuals. And

saving out my attack log to an image file was a nice touch :)

Thank you! It's a lovely surprise for me to see that last bit being spoiler-tagged. I'm glad you and Ben X got enough of a kick out of it to do that.

@ryanfb Ah, that's too bad. Thanks for the heads up. I know it works on my Mac, so I wonder why it doesn't for yours. Just to be sure:

After the game ended, did you sign the piece of paper in the menu, see the little animation on the "save" button, and then press that button? It should save a .png to your desktop when you do.

This delivered the good kind of bafflement - "I don't know what's happening but I like it". The transition into the nicely executed main scene was really effective and surprising. Also the postgame stuff was cool.

This is fantastic, man! 

 

I have no idea the connection between the pod bits and the bird scene, but amazingly well done and I greatly enjoy the experimental weirdness on display!

 

Did I..save something?

Yes, you might have . . .

 

Spoiler

If you pressed the "save" button when it started blinking, the game should've deposited a souvenir on your desktop.
