APARTMENT COMPLEX

Download from itch.io

A short point-and-click / visual novel type of game which takes place during the early hours after a heavy night.

Suggested for ages 13+ (some allusions to drinking)

Try to get back to your room and get some sleep!
It sounds like a great plan. And you really should try to get a few hours in bed before your dad comes to pick you up tomorrow.

The only thing is, you have lost your phone and wallet! Oh no! O_O

And you can't understand the keycard you have for your room...
----------
It's about 1.5k words, maybe 10-25 minutes.
Spoiler (sort of / not really):
There is 1 real ending and a couple of special items which you might find!

Made for SuNoFes 2016

This is really cool! As always, your art and music are great! I don't think I've seen anyone else combine complex animations and audio in Ren'py the way you do. I guess the only problem I had was figuring out how to progress at a certain point, but
based on the ending, I assume that was intentional.
Things I've worked on:
- KAIMA Soundtrack (dark RPG with multiple endings, game by NomnomNami here)
- Her Tears Were My Light Soundtrack (NaNoRenO 2016, yuri game with time travel and cute artwork, game by NomnomNami here)
- Abandoned Building Quest (NaNoRenO 2016, weird adventure game with battles and chiptune music)

I loved all the effects so much. Great job!

The original post wasn't as bad as I had feared! I made it in a bit of a rush before going on holiday for a few days!

I would be interested to hear from people who have had the chance to play whether they found the story engaging/thought-provoking? By which, what I am getting at is: for future projects would you rather see something more abstract or is a quirky slice of life just as enjoyable!?

(It seems like a rather redundant question when I write it out like that... Oh well)
And feel free to PM or send me a response on twitter if you'd rather.

@LydianChord Thank you! I hope to keep experimenting with audio and visual elements and get a bit more finesse as time goes on! :) Sound design can certainly play a huge role in how a scene is read by players. I might even do a text-less VN one day as ATP Projects did with Trauma Bridge. (maybe.. maybe..)

@godline Thanks for your comments :D I will be dangerous when I can write ATL without having to trial and error like 15 times to get what I want haha!
