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.

Play the static speaks my name

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.

New game (Bucket Detective) coming February 16!

I'm super excited to announce my new game - Bucket Detective. My programmer and I have been working on it for about a year and a half (between day jobs and school) and it's finally ready! If you like the static speaks my name I think you're really gonna love Bucket Detective. It's a similar genre/mood to the static speaks my name, but it's bigger, with more story, and with a lot more polish. It's also weirder and darker and I think it's the best game I've ever made.





The game will cost $3.99 (depending on your country the price may vary slightly). In playtests players have gotten at least 45-60 minutes of solid enjoyment out of it (more if they try to unlock all the endings). We're also gonna have developer audio commentary about the making of the game to reeeaallly give you your money's worth.

So yah, check out the store page and if it looks like something you wanna play, add it to your wishlist and grab it on feb 16! ;-0

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.
