ORDER A PIZZA: A Visual Novel

Free on Itch.io:
https://rocketadrift.itch.io/order-a-pizza

This game is our submission for the 2019 NanoReno Game Jam. It was made in the month of March.

Synopsis:

A visual novel where you play as a divorced dad trying to order the perfect pizza.
You learn through exploring the items in your apartment and navigate difficult conversations in order to find the perfect pizza.

Features:

-Endings
-An in-game pizza app where you can make a pizza
-General weirdness

ps. This is our first ever Ren'py game. We had a great time being part of NaNoRenO2019. We are moving on to a much more involved game now... Also this is my first ever post on this forum so I hope I did it right. Thanks!

I am shocked and appalled that no one has responded here yet! Seriously, I enjoyed playing this game SO MUCH! I even stopped a couple chapters in just so I could go through it WITH my fiance. xD
It was an experience that deserved to be shared!

I really wasn't expecting how everything ultimately developed. Of course, how could I? Each level was progressively more entertaining, and I loved all the wacky "Fail" endings (which I went out of my way to collect). I also quite appreciated how this game was visually laid out. I like standard VN-style as much as the next person, but it's always awesome to see something new!

The animations did wonders for the overall atmosphere, the music was perfectly placed, the mini-game was a nifty element to tie everything together. I'm just a huge fan of this game!

Side note, I am wondering if I can get a hint for Fail 7? I feel like I've tried EVERYTHING, but it's the only one I haven't been able to figure out.

Thanks so much for all your kind words! We are so glad you liked the game.

As for Fail 7, it's on the Level where you have to choose between Margot and Abby (level 2) and can make a half and half pizza. You basically have to do everything wrong. Kill Margot and don't get anything Abby wants.

AHA! I figured out what I was missing thanks to your guidance. : )
I'd actually already tried doing everything wrong, but encountered a different ending. The requirement was to do everything wrong after telling Margot we were getting mushrooms (instead of telling Abby we weren't). Woot! 100% completion! Kinda wish there was a secret ending for that achievement now, just so there'd be more content. xD

This is a great idea (to have a secret ending or bonus content unlock if you complete 100%), gonna try to implement that into the next game we make.

I've already left a more detailed comment on your itch.io page, but I thought I'd leave one here as well to bump up this thread so that more people can experience this wonderful game. <3

If you're wondering whether to download this game, I urge you: DOWNLOAD IT NOW. I've played tons of VNs/KNs but I've never seen anything like this before. It's well worth your time, I assure you.

Hello there, just played the game!
I loved the characterization of the characters and the BRILLIANT writing. To be honest, I don't remember playing a good written game like this for so long! It was so smart that I screamed while playing it.
The art style complements the writing almost perfectly, and I can only hope that more people will eventually get to play the game.
Thank you so much for creating it!
(Also, would you mind if "someone" made fanart of it? ^^)

This was an amazing game and it really made laundry day so much better than I was expecting it to be. ^_^ I don't really have anything to add beyond what people have already said in this thread, but the humor was great, the slowly-increasing weirdness was atmospheric and even a little unsettling at times, and with all that you delivered a genuinely heartwarming story/message about balancing relationships with the people in your life which I really enjoyed. Plus the art was fantastic. Awesome job on this and I'm definitely looking forward to your new project! ^_^
