i’m either dumb or missing something because i can’t get pass the ball and remote bit.

I forgot to add a hint there!

So, cats love small moving objects…

[SOLUTION, IN CASE YOU ARE STILL STUCK]

Just throw the ball.

Oh thanks! I wasn’t aware we could do other commands.

Interesting idea. Played it a few times, ***SPOLIERS***


always managing to feed the cat (in two different ways), and put it in the box, but then the key just eludes me. Tried everything with the remote and tv, looked at everything, word guessing a lot event with an italian-oriented flair, still not a clue. I'll try it again later. Let's hope this is not part of the "bugged version" disclaimer, as I'd like to finish it.

Thanks for playing!

As for the issue, if you didn’t play the downloadable version and if it’s not a bug I haven’t tracked down yet,

[SPOILERS AHEAD] you have to examine the door first, then both the table and the coat hanger, in any order. The second one you examine gives you the key.

Maybe it's just me, but I can't find the downloadable version...

Coat hanger and table didn't show up examining the room (in the online version), but where there when needed.

The game plot (or maybe scenario, as it is really short) was really funny!

First, just after replying to you, I removed the downloadable version (which I kept because it was the one published before the jam deadline) since many folks were downloading it instead of playing the updated browser version. Sorry for the confusion!

As for the key locations, yes, they appear when needed. It would surely be better if I change some lines so it’s clear that something has changed and you have to check again. Taking note for an updated game version, somewhere in the future, thank you very much!

The game was inspired by a friend’s cat (the sitting and not moving part, at least, and the name puzzle).

This is great! Text adventure games have much untapped potential

Thank you!

It’s been my first time with Adventuron, I found it very easy to use and well documented: I made everything in sort of a “regular” jam timeframe (so, around 48 hours), without any experience with the tool.

If you’re interested there’s a good official videotutorial which teaches you how to write a simple game in half an hour, and the community is really nice.

As for parser game, there’s a jam starting in few days.
