Siblings Octavio, Tony, and Pablo are exploring outside of an abandoned factory, looking for the world’s best snails. You can guess where this is going.

Living Playground is a short puzzle-based adventure game with a dash of horror theming for flavor. The player controls Tony, the cheerful slide girl, as she attempts to reunite with her brothers and find an exit while avoiding multiple untimely ends. Conveniently, the children aren’t human but are living toys themselves, playground equipment which can take human form. Along the way, they uncover interesting details about the factory they're trapped in. What happened to the rather cheery-sounding owner? How did things get this WEIRD? At least the monster parts make sense, because there are some strange playthings wandering the factory.

Content Warning
MILD
A full list is available in the game's readme file, but it's mostly fantasy violence and very light touches of horror imagery. There is a chase sequence.

That said, it’s relatively low-difficulty, so even people bad at games (LIKE ME) should be able to complete it! And if you get lost, there is a walkthrough provided in the ZIP. The general running time seems to be about an hour and a half. In order for the game to properly run, please move the Movie folder into the main game folder. Also make sure you have the RMXP Runtime Package files installed!

Please feel free to contact me for bug reports, critique, or any other reason. While this is a remake of my first game, I'm still learning the ins and outs of RPG Maker and any advice anyone has just helps me improve my next games!

Renovated

Uh.... hello.

I've sort of gone on a wild tangent with my life and remade the game completely in the past few months while I was waiting for my beta testers who are hard at work on Babby's Second Game.

Please feel free to give the game another try! Or if this is your first time around, hello and welcome to my game! I really hope you enjoy it.

You can download it directly from RMN, or via Mediafire

Thank you and have a great day/night/time!

Thank you very much! I hope you enjoy it when you do play. (I apologize for the delay in actually uploading, I worked later than usual tonight)
Nice game! It's very neat

(Edit) But the skull seems glitched. If you get it wrong once, he doesn't let you re-do it (it just shows up as wrong again for me)

I found this really adorable


I'm glad, I aim for a balance of cute and strange in my stuff!

Hmm... that's a weird error, it works fine for me. If it's at the point when it starts going into Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, it may be because sometimes it doesn't play the noise after consecutive notes (because I made it a ME instead of an SE h-haha....), but as long as the bone lights up, it's counted as being played. If that wasn't the problem, let me know and I'll try to figure out what's going on!
It actually wasn't a bug, but me failing. I didn't realize it was playing it twice because my sound was off. But there are more bugs I found

-> You can move during all cutscenes when there's no dialog
-> In the end, when you leave the Director's room you can move to either side into the void
-> (Serious) During the ending, if you keep pressing up after shoving (which I do), your character is out of place and the game permanently freezes
-> Using the Slide ability during the wrong times (such as during the final boss) will make your screen black
-> Returning to one of the test rooms after completing it and casting Slide turns the screen black
-> (Serious) If you rescue fairies before talking to the blue one, you cannot advance (it never triggers the mission being finished)

There are more but I can't think of them right now... maybe later I'll remember. Anyways I have a video I will submit and probably write a review.. I really enjoyed the game, nice job with it.

Ah, thank you so much for these! I'll do my best to fix them as soon as I can. Hopefully now that I can actually maneuver around RMXP, I can figure this out.
When I click the down arrow key in game menu or make a choice then it crashed...have way to fix it?
btw, this game looks pretty nice :D

Hmmm, I haven't heard of that error happening before. Maybe somehow one of the files went missing during the download? Try checking the Audio -> SE folder of the game and make sure get.wav, select.mp3, beep-22.mp3, and Lamp Switch.mp3 are all in there. If not, download them from the links there and make sure to save them as those file names. If those are there, the problem may be you don't have the RMXP runtime file, which can be downloaded here.

If neither of those solve it, please let me know and I'll try to get to the bottom of it! (And thank you!!!)
I had an extremely great time playing this and you've gotten me really, really excited for upcoming games for this series. I added more videos on my Youtube gaming channel playing this game. I changed up my voice so that when they talk, they'd have different voices. If you ever get the chance, I'd love for you to check them out when you have the time. Of course, you aren't obligated to, but would mean very much. Thanks so much for this lovely game. I can't wait to voice them while playing in the future.

I'm still trying to process that I live in a world where people played a game I made and even went through the trouble of recording it and editing it (and providing voices...!)

Thank you so much! I'm really shy about watching other people play my stuff (I have no idea why, screenings in college never phased me), but I had to check this out!
Hey! I keep getting an error saying I'm missing RGSS104E.dll but I have RPG Maker VX, RPG Maker XP and the RTPs, but I'm still getting that error. Do you know how I can fix it?
I've been trying to play this through and get all the pages but I'm stuck on the "Play" segment with the bears. I just get stuck in this room without any option that actually moves the plot forward.
What on earth am I doing wrong?
I'm a noob T_Tv when it comes to rpg games.
I can't seem to make it work.
it says
Script 'Window_SaveFile'line 28:EOFError Occured
End of File reached


help?

That's very strange, I've never even heard of that error before! Here's the file so hopefully that'll fix that problem.

There's a "play" option that can be accessed from the menu...! (The PDF walkthrough may go into more detail)

Hmmmh, that's a weird one. If it happens on load up, delete any save data that may be in the folder and see if that clears it up. If not, I honestly... have no idea what could be causing that, I didn't even touch the save script for this one h-haha
