Delve into 90s nostalgia with a point and click game! Inspired by family favourites like Money Island and King’s Quest, the game follows an unassuming hero through a rapidly escalating career move. The gaming experience is enhanced with a “back-in-the-day” pixelation style, minimalist music written from scratch, and a gripping narrative paying homage to dystopian writers.

Nice short game and the mystery.


Thanks! The theme of the game jam, if I remember, was mystery or "that escalated quickly".
