Alone in the Park delivers a slow-paced, low-octane blend of text and graphical adventure gameplay that will have you fully reclined on your chaise longue. Play as a rather misanthropic gamer who finds herself lured away from her computer to embark upon a real world quest: finding hidden treasure in a National Park. Annoyingly, doing this requires her to locate and reassemble pieces of a treasure map. And instead of being populated with cool creatures like giant vampire squid bats or something, the park's forests, lakes and mountains are home to the lamest NPCs imaginable. This treasure had better be fucking legendary. Alone in the Park features: - Around 4 hours of gameplay - A map to travel around around with, and a clear, visual way to interact with characters and items (no conversation trees) - Geographical puzzles and classic adventure game style quests - An idiosyncratic tone of humour and narrative voice - Satirical music

Now that I'm back in typesafe programming land I'm casting a great deal. If I were casting much more than this I'd probably catch a trout.

Our file naming convention means I get to name files "poo" (poo_001, poo_002). Fnarf!

Toothache is the best thing right before international travel. Especially to countries where dental care costs c. 10x as much as in France.

Exciting visitor arrives soon. I haven't cleaned the bathroom! I have, however, replenished our supply of gin and financiers.
