Today I am proud to release my final game, Another Day in the Life of Bob, a sequel to the first game I released, A Day in the Life of Bob.
This game follows the same premise as its predecessor, where there are no clear goals except for the ones you set for yourself- you may choose to make a lot of money, or you may choose to live on the streets. You might work as a surgeon, or you might sell plants. The game only ends when you die, and unlike in real life, that could potentially be... never!
To view screenshots of the game, and to download it, click here.
Alternatively, you can download it by clicking here. The game is 28MB.
Here is a link to the game on YoYoGames.
I should note that unlike my other games, I am not including an editable for download. I wrestled with this idea for a while, but my reason for not making the editable available is that one of the game's most import aspects is its surprises. I feel that an open-sourced version would ruin a lot of what makes this game interesting and fun.
That said, I'm happy to give away scripts or anything- just request it.
Game play is very simple: Bob is moved using either the arrow keys or WASD. It's best to try both of them and see which you prefer, because they also offer different styles of movement.
Beyond movement, the rest of the game is essentially played with the mouse. Use it to navigate through menus and such.
F4 toggles fullscreen/window, Esc brings up a save/quit menu, and ctrl-S saves the game. Also, pressing shift-ctrl-Z brings up a cheat window.
All of this can be explained in-game by pressing F1.
Final note: The game contains some mature themes and a bit of language, but I think that all actions are balanced by appropriate (and predictable) consequences, just as in real life. I am not trying to promote any kind of behavior, merely acknowledging that it is a part of life. And just as in real life, you make your own decisions.
I hope you enjoy my last game!
