Social Caterpillar is the first commercial Twelve Tiles game. It's weirdly personal. And also cool. Please enjoy this long walk down a strange corridor. :)

Interpretation: Medium
Custom Assets: Yes
Price: FREE
- Itch.Io
- Twelve Tiles (Main Site)

Social Caterpillar is a diorama that elaborates on thoughts and feelings about introversion and socializing. Each piece is some wildly personal and heavily abstracted metaphor for interacting and progressing through... well, people.

Be an introvert stepping outside his/her bubble. For curiosity? For love? To ace that big speech on insects? The reason's... not so important. But it's worth a shot.

- Engage 15-ish unique context-sensitive puzzles
- Press forward through doors despite a rather unhelpful Inner Voice
- Spend Social Energy, then regain some by relaxing at home, alone, just for a moment
- Push and poke around areas to find Secret Rooms and Puzzles
- Be sure to pet a caterpillar if you see one!

This is a short, simple game that expresses the nuances of social interactions through bite-sized puzzles. There is very little text and most of the story is implied rather than explained. It's designed to evoke some neat thoughts while also looking kind of pretty and feeling kind of new. Also, caterpillars.

Custom pixel art and music ~ Over 15 unique puzzles ~ Pretentious metaphors!

If you're interested in playing this game and you want to download it, make sure you want to keep it on your pc forever and for always. If you want to remove the game folder later on, it simply won't work. That's because the game contains a true type-font called "PF Tempesta Seven" which can't be deleted anymore once you've installed the game which is pretty annoying. I tried to remove it manually. I tried to delete it by removing it through the registry. I tried to delete it by downloading third party software which I was hoping will help me to remove it. Well, it didn't work. I think I've to start a system recovery to get rid of this font.
Wow, really? That's... insane! I've installed this game on multiple computers and haven't had this come up yet.

Hm. It looks like Windows 10 has had a problem with removing fonts for a long time. Which is really strange. I'm using Windows 10 and I've deleted and re-installed that exact font five times now.

Did you use the Installer version?

Thanks for the warning! I'll add a note in the game information on Itch, too. :)
Did you use the Installer version?

It was the non-installer version, meaning I didn't even install that font. By now, I managed to remove it via another third party software but I couldn't actually explain myself why it wasn't possible yesterday.
