What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is a way for the community to steer the game design into the right direction. Your ideas help a lot in designing the game and adding new features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It could take anywhere up to six months, depending on the scope of the content that will be added to the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The early access version will differ from the full game in the amount of content and gameplay time that you get out of the game. The game will get expanded with new buildings, new gameplay elements, overall polish of the game”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently there is a sandbox mode in which you explore and interact with the world, there are multiple weapons and buildings and vehicles available in the map. A story mode will be added, also new gameplay ideas that the community suggests.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not change after early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will read every single one of your ideas and suggestions and if I decide that your ideas are adding to the overall experience and entertainment value of the game I will implement them.”

New character design

Note: I'll be updating this post with new characters as I make them, so be sure to check this post later.

One major issue with the visual design of Garbage Day is the lifeless characters. I want the story of the game to be dialogue and character oriented and that'd pretty difficult to achieve with a character that has no face. So I have been experimenting with a few visual styles and I found one that I'm happy with.

Another reason for choosing this style is to keep the game more lighthearted, so that the violence and dark humor in the game wouldn't be taken as seriously.

The player arms also needed an update.
































These next images are to show how expressive the face animations can get.











Also the dismemberment isn't going anywhere with this new art style.



Let me know how you feel about this style in the comments and I'm open to any suggestions.

I'll do my best to show you what I'm working on during development.

Kept you waiting huh?

Let me preface this anouncement by saying that instead of pointless apologies I want to offer instead my honesty which I think is more valuable.

Theres a few names to a state I've been experiencing, names such as "burning out" or "writers block". I could go into depth analyzing how and why this happened, but that wouldn't achieve anything except perpetuate this creative block by making me identify with it.

After this setback I am in a state in which I can continue working on the development.

With that being said, the game will be released when its time. All that I can say for sure is that I am working on it.

I hope you can understand and I want to thank you for sticking with me.

About This Game

Garbage Day is an open world sandbox game, in which you are stuck in a time loop (meaning you live the same day over and over).
In this game you have to explore and interact to find out how to get out of the time loop. You are open to do anything you want, kill innocent people, go to work, watch tv, go to the park, etc.

There is no surprise that this game is inspired by the movie Groundhog Day.

The game takes place in a regular suburban town, powered by a nuclear plant, but after an accident in the power plant you get stuck in a temporal loop.

Your main goal is to find a way to break the time loop by exploring the world and to find out the secret behind all of this. If you die, you just wake up in your bed and the day starts again, so the world is your oyster.
When you wake up you still know the information from the previous day and this influences the dialogue choices. Be a ruthless killer or become the friendliest neighbor to have ever walked the earth. Nothing matters when you're stuck in the same day for eternity... But maybe there's a way out.
