Loading SWF for the first time...

An atmospheric horror point 'n click

[Play it directly in the browser! Just wait a minute until the grey screen above turns black. If you can't play it in the browser, the game is also available for download.]

 This short game plays in a hostile urban future. You're a panhandling kid trying to make it through the day.

Navigate through the beggarly Zone and the Frontier, the border to Whale Town.

[Alpha version! The handles can sometimes still be a bit buggy, but everything else works fine.]

This animation plays about 20-30 years before the game: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/683227

This game is actually my very first game. I've created it in flash.

Interesting stuff, certainly is strange. Neat visuals!

Thanks! Unfortunately the controls are a bit messy. Nothing bad but it would cost me weeks of work to fix it. I already know how I could avoid the problem in episode II, though :)

Right even after downloading it still didn't work when I tried opening the SWF, not in chrome and not in firefox. I finally got the game to work as an SWF and to show up on this page. You have to change a setting in Chrome, here's how you get the game to work in chrome on this page, you can also drag and drop the SWF into Chrome after this method:

- Go to your Chrome settings (the 3 dots in the top right of chrome and click Settings)

- Type "flash" in the search bar at the top, it'll show a yellow bubble with "flash" pointing at "Settings for content" at the bottom, click on it.

- Click on Flash

- Turn off the second switch "Ask first", apparantly not all sites actually ask like over here, after turning Ask first off, try opening this page again or restart chrome and the game should  work

Oh man! I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope it's worth it :) When I log out, it still works perfectly fine in safari and in firefox ...

I'm sorry, but there's no grey screen here. I'm on chrome. The rest of the page is fine, but there's no game haha

Chrome users seem to have problems playing the game in the browser. That's why i made it available for download.

Thanks for your comment, and please be aware that this is still an alpha version, the handles can be a bit buggy sometimes (nothing bad), everything else works fine. If you're stuck and need a hint to proceed, don't hesitate to comment here. I'll answer asap. :)

I hate to say it but I'm on chrome which comes with Flash built in and updated, and I don't see any grey screen to begin with. There's nothing.

Could you try exporting it to SWF and uploading that as  a download?

Thanks for letting me know. The file is now available for download. Be aware that this is still an alpha, the handles can be a bit buggy sometimes, everything else works fine. If you're stuck and need a hint to proceed, don't hesitate to comment here. I'll answer asap. :)
