Patch Notes:

  • Fixed rare bug where the mountain goat would not follow Tondbert between room transitions.

Thanks again for all of your support, all the best.

Guard Duty: Now Available!

It's here! Guard Duty is now available on Windows, Mac and Linux!.

Thank you all for your support over the years, we honestly couldn't have done it without you.

Guard Duty was a true passion project, an idea initially conceived way back in 2006.

The game started life as a hobby project, something developed in any spare evening after work, since then I've changed job three times, been to three weddings and four of my friends now have children!

We've learnt so much throughout development and have truly grown as the game developed, after 4.5 years it's finally here.

I can't wait to hear what you think of the game, thank you all for your support and words of encouragement.

Enjoy your time in Wrinklewood, don't forget to stop by the Drunken Monk.

“Guard Duty touches and enchants the player with loving drawings, an unmistakable soundtrack and a film-ready staging.”
85/100 – AdventureTreff

“An unabashed love letter to the cult ‘little’ point and click adventures of the 90’s, executed with panache. Guaranteed to bring a smile to the lips of veteran adventure gamers”
72/100 – RageQuit

“Guard Duty is a nostalgia-laden charmer that shows nothing but love and respect for the classic point-and-click titles it most resembles.”
70/100 – AdventureGamers

About This Game



Tondbert, loyal Guard to the Castle of Wrinklewood, is having a rough day. A little too much ale at the local pub, a lapse in judgement, and the next thing you know a hooded figure has slipped into the kingdom and kidnapped the princess -- an event that will have consequences well into the future.

A thousand years later, in a small orbital station, Agent Starborn is a member of a resistance group embarking on a last ditch effort to overthrow evil and take back the Earth -- a quest rooted in the depths of history.

Discover how these two playable characters' fates are intertwined and you might just save humanity in the process.

Features:



  • A full stand-alone game spanning across two drastically different time zones – Past or future, choose your actions wisely. This is not a tale for the faint of heart.

  • Full voice acting - Over 6000 lines of fully voiced dialogue.

  • Hundreds of detailed animations – Be it the flicker of candlelight, leaves blowing in the wind or the jaws of a giant Wrinkleworm you can be sure those pixels will be pulling their weight.

  • Bespoke music and sound – Guard Duty features over 30 unique musical compositions with hundreds of sound effects created in-house specifically for this project.

  • Available on Windows, Mac and Linux.

  • Integrated 'to-do list' keeps track of current goals and objectives – Never lose sight of your goal, Guard Duty features a familiar RPG styled quest tracking system.

  • Hand crafted pixel art – True to the era, Guard Duty is created in a juicy 320x240 resolution and styled like a real 90's point and click.

  • Streamlined inventory and puzzle design – The feel of a classic, without all the faff. Puzzles are logical with an intuitive interface, Guard Duty features a modern mentality to game design whilst retaining a classic aesthetic.
