August 1986 is a game created by Raganoxer and I, primarily developed for 3 years (2019-2022) during our free time. I did all the programming, whilst Raganoxer did a majority of the art and music. We no longer wish to continue with this project for various reasons (project scope being too large, growing tensions among developers, general lack of foresight), so we've decided to release the entire first chapter (which is all we had done, I know shocker).

You play as Paul Manson, a 17 year old kid who's fresh out of the juvenile detention center and is getting picked up by his best friend Miles Peterson. He might've wasted most of his summer, but the two of them aren't gonna let that stop them. Today they're gonna do all kinds of stuff, like going to the town arcade, heading to the local small convenience store, and hanging around their favorite spot at the local junkyard. But what they don't know is that today is gonna be a day they'll remember for the rest of their lives.

•3 hours of riveting active time RPG combat!
•2 difficulty options for both puzzles and combat, creating an experience tailored to every player's skill level!
•Occasional puzzles to break up the gameplay a bit!
•Platforming, allowing players to take shortcuts and gain items in exchange for fall damage.

Cool game, sucks that you cancelled it.

Eh, it's whatever. It wasn't gonna work out anyways but we got like roughly 3 hours worth of stuff done so I'm not too unhappy with the end result. Hope you enjoy what's here!
Criminally underappreciated work here! Had a blast playing it on stream today.
Just saw this on Riggy's stream. Looks awesome, man!.
Exciting, but ultimately pointless.
Been watching Riggy (or goji in the comments) streaming this and it looks super polished. This game page seriously needs more comments, and only 18 downloads on this high effort 2k3 game is criminal. Definitely going to try this out myself soon!
Why did you cancel it?. Was there so much left?. This legit looks like a top tier rpgm game.

It was a large mixture of interpersonal drama and lack of foresight between the two of us. It's never gonna get finished, and what you see in the demo is all there is aside from some unused content here and there. I just stopped giving a shit near the end and I had no qualms with putting old yeller down.
