This is my first completed game. Having a deadline was a massive help for me to actually get something finished!
It's a short story about writing horoscopes and the technological singularity. It's also kind of a rhythm game.
I did the coding, story, art and some of the music. Big thanks to Urban Fox for the exclusive track which you can hear at the beginning.
In the coming days I will add some of my thoughts and some technical information on my blog. This is the first release by sleepy agents which is the name of my game dev studio - which isn't much more than me and a laptop at the moment!
Interactive Audio - the music will be different depending on your choices and the timing of your choices
Approx. 20 minutes long / 2000 words
I'd love to receive any feedback. Can you read the text OK? Does this work on Linux and Mac? I haven't been able to test on those operating systems!
Also would you say this is "too experimental" or "not experimental enough" for your tastes?
If anybody would rather play on android I have now uploaded an APK.
Or to download through the play store please join the play test Google group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/sleepyplaytest
And once joined you can download through the play store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.sleepyagents.newpisces
This APK is a beta, I have not optimised for mobile devices so I won't be putting this on the public play store. I'll consider this in the future, but for now I'm shifting focus to my other game which will have a full android release.
Download the version for your operating system. Unzip the file and navigate inside the folder to find the "new pisces.exe" file. Double click to launch.
You may need to look at the 'more' or 'advanced' options if your operating system or anti-virus filter prevent you from saving or running the files. The game was coded by myself using the ren'py engine, so I know there are no viruses etc.
