strange happenings. shuts down at the exact same point, repeated 4x. wonderful game nonetheless, wish i could finish it haha

This is a fantastic game!

TL;DR: download Linux version and open index.html in your browser.

The game engine is pretty out-of-date; the game engine won't run on OSX Catalina and on linux you'll need (at least) these 32-bit libraries: libxrender, libgobject, glib, cairo, gtk2, nss, alsa, xcomposite, and gconf.

Note that gconf was deprecated 6+ years ago, so unless your linux system is 32-bit and at least 5 years out-of-date, it'll be very difficult to get it to run.

As a workaround (that seems to work for all platforms), since it's all html-based, it'll run just fine in the browser – download the Linux version (even if you're on Mac/Windows) and open index.html in your browser.

I've only tested with Firefox, but everything seems to work, including saving/restoring.

Still a great game, that hasn't changed. Also cheap AF.

(1 edit)

Norton put an Alart on it. And the game often shut down suddenly


uninstall norton, windows defender is actually stupidly good and mac has a lot of better alternatives. if you are using linux tho... why are you using linux to play games in the first place?!?


linux is now a great platform for playing games, especially with the steam proton that was published something like a year ago. I agree with the rest

Is Jingle BEL/S included, will be patched in later, or will it be a stand alone game on Itch?


Thanks for reminding me! I just published it as a stand alone game.

Now i know the game engine, i only have to assimilate your twine engine mlg master skillz


The game looks great but I see there is only a demo available here. Can you make the full game available here for PC? It is at Kongregate for 3.99 for PC. I would happily pay that for it here.


its on steam

Just grabbed it on Steam. thanks
