    Senile Quest I - Yoni - Jam Entry

    One night you suddenly find yourself, a senile old man, all alone in a strange city.
    Can you find your way home?

    Controls:

    Right click - pick action, or skip dialog
    Left click - perform action

    F - toggle fullscreen (fullscreen is highly recommended!)


    We planned a much bigger quest but due to not making it in time, we had to cut it greatly.
    Expect the full version to come out soon!

    Thought the concept was very cool and the art very impressive for a short game. I got stuck pretty early on I would say, but I'm rubbish at these games anyway :) Very nice!

    Uncle Poppy is creepy, indeed. Couldn't get outside his store. Brrr :) Point and clicks aren't really my cup of tea either.

    Thanks for the feedback CaptainFresh & lorancou :)

    We found ourselves EXTREMELY tight for time so indeed we have some bugs. Among them is the difficulty to leave rooms, as lorancou noted :) Sorry about that.
    Try clicking as close as possible to the bottom/edge of the screen. You will get it in the end.

    Also, for everyone who's "rubbish at adventure games" but wants to see the entire game, I've uploaded hints to the game webpage. Take a look: http://www.yonispants.com/SenileQuest/hints/warning.html

    For hardcore adventure gamers, I advise against looking at the hints. You can do it! :)

    This sure takes me back a few years.
    Great job on the writing.
    Could use a lot more polish on the usability aspect (like NOT reverting to "walk" every time I do anything).

    Great job and I'm sure next time will be even better. Good luck!

    You're the second person to complain about the revert :)

    Really nice presentation! You got a good amount of content in such a short time.

    Nice little adventure game. I got stuck because i didn't think of talking with the candy shop owner about the same topic multiple times. Seems a bit odd to me. Only solved it thanks to our hints page.

    Very impressive for LD, quite funny too, about the only thing which was really annoying was hitting the exit from the current room.

    Great game! :D Needed the hints, but only because I wasn't able to interact with the counter at first ;-)
