    STOPCOCK - superflat - Jam Entry

    A ZX Spectrum RPG.

    Worked for 72 hours, amongst family things, really more like two day's proper work.

    This is an biographical tale of my papa's arrival in England in the 60's, based on an unpublished novel he wrote. As he's not around to fill in the details, I had to make some of them up.

    It's ... it's ... I don't really know what it is.

    Exactly the sort of utterly charming stuff I've come to expect from you Jasper. Lovely :D

    I *think* I'm getting an error during the install. Couldn't get it running anyway :(

    I launched setup.exe but i can't read anything (only sequences of ?????).
    However, I was able to play, unpacking the .lzh file with 7zip.
    Nice work (the "writer's block" as a weapone made me laugh): however, I find the game slightly off-theme...

    Oh man, an installer? I loved the graphical style and the music, though it was pretty hard to read the text on a 30" monitor! Nice stuff...

    Yeah unfortunately I don't know of any other way to distribute RPG Maker 2K3 files...

    The installed copies stuff to C:/Program Files/rpg2003/Stopcock, where the EXE is placed. Sorry for the terrible unfriendliness!

    I was unable to play this. The installer was full of ????? and even after unpacking the .lzh, the game didn't work. It did change my screen resolution to something really small though. I only saw a quick splash screen and then just blackness.

    Ah, the speccy style art! (Bonus for your logo). This really is probably the most strangest variation on jRPG I've ever seen, too bad I couln't try the "Rip entire gut" skill I got in the last fight. The only connection with the theme "Escape" I noticed was Escape item in the combat menu...
    There's only one thing I really disapprove (except the installer)

    I finally found the game after installing. It seems mostly a slog against Massive Papa. Unsure of the connection to escape?

    The dialog is witty and entertaining. Well done.
