Grapes and Bacon


Follow Lily Grapes and Gordon Bacon, special investigators, on an adventure to restore time to its proper order. Or, at least, try to.

This is my entry for the Narrative-Driven Jam #11. The theme this time was “Anachronism”. I also used the optional themes of “Besties” and “Deus Ex Machina”, somehow.

To be honest, i was more excited for the “Beasties” theme because i had these two characters “in the pipeline” for almost three years, now, and i saw this as my chance to finally bring them to life.

This time i tried to stay away from the line-art style of my previously two entries in the narrative-driven jam. I actually wanted to draw something using only plain-filled shapes, much like Once Upon the Jester does.

Alas, i am not an artist and could not do anything that “pops” without outlines. And even with that is not very good.

Like always, i had to rush things in order to reach the deadline, so the game has a lot less content than i initially planned, but at i think it is entertaining nonetheless. Even if only for five minutes.


Everything is done with the mouse. This time i use different cursors to show you what you can do with all the items and characters on screen.
