"You have chosen me. By my honor, I shall not fail."


These were the last famous words of Sir Arthur of Artymore, famous patron saint of the arts and lover of all colorful creatures of God's Kingdom, as he journeyed towards his untimely end at the hands of the Mongols. His last words, lost forever to the passing of time, held the secret to the very definition of Art itself, knowledge that humanity has fought over for more than a thousand years.

Now, a community of limbless beings strive to attain enlightment by understanding this vague concept, and by doing so, they shall be granted arms! And LEGS! That they can use to WALK! and create ART with! Beggining the POWERFUL CYCLE anew!



A marvelous chapter in this episodic series that is your life, this game was made for the TimTamSlamJam in the space of like two days a full month. Yeah, that means a full 31 days were spent making this FANTASTIC PRODUCT.

Whatever give us the tims libbu




Made by Mirak, Superstroke and zDS

This game is short, it is meant to be finished in one sitting, like being served an entire turkey and being told that you cannot leave the table until all flesh has been ripped apart from the bone and ingested in an untidy but enthusiastic manner.

This game was a Team Effort and an explosion of raw creativity.

Hello there to our 7 subscribers, it's time for the first and probably last blog of this game.

You can feel free to ignore this since it's mostly an explanation of what's up with the latest download I uploaded. Anyway, so this game is pretty much finished now. It was made for the TimTamJam, as you know by now, and even though we had a full month of time to make our game we spend it trading ideas that at the end didn't really take off, and with good reason.

Since the theme was "Art", we initially wanted to make a game about a grandma who would make an artistic granny present to her soon-to-be-born great-grandson. We had thought of making a game where you'd switch perspectives, you'd be a thread and needle in one section, a melody in physical form the next section, and we never thought about what to do with the third section because the first two ideas were vague enough that we both liked them and at the same time had no idea how to begin giving them shape.

It was a well, "interesting" concept that unfortunately presented way too many complications when it came to actually creating gameplay, and at the end we entered a state where we didn't know what to do or where to go, and the days passed.

In the end, two days before the deadline, when all of us were pretty much accepting the fact that we wouldn't be able to turn in anything, I humored the idea of not overthinking the theme of the contest, and engaged in an old design practice I used to do whenever I got artist block: Applying spontaneity. Capturing the first creative thought that surfaced into our minds, and displaying it in it's rawest form. No time to think things through, just grab the brush, and let the paint quickly create shapes, messages, and meaning.

The result is, I believe, a humble and 100% honest specimen of artistic expression. Borrowing the words of CashmereCat, a product of their authors.

I am incredibly satisfied with how this little experiment came out.

...Which is why, when I saw this on Liberty's stream the other day, I was a bit bummed out.



I'll be honest with you guys. I'm a weird person. I have a difficult time communicating with people and I don't know when people are being jokey or when they're serious, and the impression I got from the stream is that I was getting all the credit for the work.

Whatever douchenozzle on the internet might see this and be like "ohh cool i'm getting all the credit" but I'm not a person like that, so I feel slightly annoyed that super's and zDS's efforts were not recognized, when they composed more than half of the game. Mind you, both sup and zds were super cool about it, but I personally wasn't feeling particularly satisfied.

In short, this was a three-man product, and maybe the problem, I thought, was that we didn't really add any kind of credits to the game. Perhaps if we had done that we could have avoided this. Then again, perhaps not, perhaps everyone was joking and in on the joke and the only person who wasn't in on the joke was me.

Regardless, I went back to the game and have now uploaded a definitive version.
Most of the changes are subtle but important. I fixed a few typos, lowered the volume of some tracks, made the stream mode work correctly this time (since it only affected a few tracks) and all stream-mode tracks are now completely altered to the point that they won't be recognized by any copyright tracking software.

But the most important change is the addition of a credits scene. It'll play when you have played 6 endings (because there are only 6 true endings), regardless of if they were different endings or the same ending 6 times.

If you had already played the game or watched it in a stream, you don't need to replay the game to see the scene, for I have uploaded it to youtube and you can look at it here.



And that is it, that is all I have to say about this. I apologize if I was unable of understanding that you guys were joking, if you were, but I really have a hard time with things like those.

Oh wait, not everyone gave me all the credit.



Wtf did I worry then. Disregard all of this.

Jk I hope you all read this. Thank you for playing our game!!!

Any of these 3 being involved in anything means an instant sub for me. I will play this to the very end, which I assume will take several 10s of hours to complete.

This game is a masterwork. You should be proud, all of you!

Edit: Also I was gonna say "Wow, that's the first time in years that I've heard the opening to Taxi." But then I realized that'd be a lie because I heard it when I rewatched some Lasagna Cat the other day.

Thanks unity! I'm honestly pretty proud of it. We almost had nothing and somehow someway we put this out really fast. The response to it so far was tons of laughs and that makes me much happier than having nothing to show.

Yeah, that was my response! The humor is spot on and despite the short length, it's really charming!
