Donation Update

A few players have asked if they could financially support me for creating A Game About. It is now possible through the donation DLC! Note that DLC does not add any content to the game and is only a mean to send me love in form of a little tip (I thought $2 is about fair).

I am currently working on new prototypes, both for free and paid games, and while I can't promise right now that any of them will become a full-fledged game, I will promise that any money I receive from tips will be used to buy myself coffees* while I work on those prototypes.

I'm still amazed that A Game About managed to reach so many players. I still get a warm feeling in my heart reading the positive (and negative) words people wrote about it here on Steam and elsewhere on the internet. Just talking about the game already means a lot to me, so please don't feel obligated to buy the DLC if you don't want to or are low on money.

Thank you so much to you all. <3

Patch notes and Thank you

Patch notes:
  • Fixed an issue where the game would get stuck in a loop during "The Next Day" sequence.

I also wanted to thank all the players and the Steam community. When I released my game, I did not expect it to get much attention, let alone get over two hundred reviews in less than a month.

I am sincerely humbled by the reaction to my small experimental project. It gives me hope to see that the game connects with people. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

“There's an authenticity here, a rawness to its branching tale of daily efforts, and of faltering small steps forward, that neatly communicates a feeling of hopelessness, and sheer exhaustion.”
PC Gamer - Tom Sykes

About This Game

A Game About is a short, lo-fi (!), slice-of-life (!!), experimental (!!!) piece that recreates the crushing weight of living through the simplest routine. It's also a comedy point & click game.

Playtime should be around ten minutes. Tears - that may or may not be happy tears - should happen around the eight minutes and a half mark. I guarantee* at least two (2) good chuckles from playing the game.

Features:
  • Free
  • No IAPs
  • Absolutely free
  • Beautiful hand-drawn graphics
  • Branching Path Story
  • Achievements!

*Not an actual guarantee.
