Strong visual style, some nice writing and lovely background music :) Really liked this lil story!
Goodnight, Grandma's House
NOTE: We recommend the Download windows version. The download version has complete sound experience. The web version isn't completely devoid of music, but whole ambient tracks don't play.
Goodnight Grandma's House is a small story and walking sim. You play as Rohen, a busy music masters student, who is unexpectedly headed to his Grandma's place to finish clearing it out for sale. As he grumbles about the busy life interruption, he just can't escape the flood of memories associated with the place.
[ WASD ] - move around
[ space or left click] - continue through dialogue/text
There is no exit button, so you have to end the program manually.
- The audio slider in the menu does nothing. Feel free to move it around though, as it is quite amusing.
- Pressing [escape] will open up an in-game menu which is not functional. Pressing [escape] again will exit out of it.
- Dragonflies have been on earth for 300 million years!

This was a short narrative experience made as a part of Narrative Driven Game Jam 6. The theme was Magical Realism, with optional themes Pizza Lover, Memories, and Lying in a Bed of Stars. We were focused using this jam to work out narrative design infrastructure and FMOD implementation, and of course ended up running short on time- but also learning even more than we had hoped! Also the Narrative Driven Jam community is wonderful.
This game jam game is brought to you from the lil game dev studio Box of Mushrooms. Box of Mushrooms on twitter: https://twitter.com/BoxOfMushrooms Box of Mushrooms Discord: https://discord.gg/k9ythJc4
