A dark/sad/weird/funny first person exploration game. You play a man on his last night alive as he obsesses over a mysterious painting. More of a story game in that it emphasizes mood and character over gameplay. Takes ten minutes to play and has "next-gen" features like a shrimp tank.

Bucket Detective has been released!

My new game, Bucket Detective, is out!

It's a dark comedy/horror game in which you help a cult complete a ritual in exchange for divine inspiration to finish writing your terrible novel. A story-focused experience where the choices you make determine which of the five endings you receive. It's definitely a spiritual successor to the static speaks my name, so if you like that game, I think you'll really enjoy Bucket Detective.

About This Game

A dark/sad/weird/funny first person exploration game. You play a man on his last night alive as he obsesses over a mysterious painting. More of a story game in that it emphasizes mood and character over gameplay. Takes ten minutes to play and has "next-gen" features like a shrimp tank with pet shrimp. Be warned, the game contains explicit handling of suicide.

For people that have played the game elsewhere, this is the original version, not an expansion or HD remake.
