You are Watson. Sherlock Holmes is missing! You should probably find him.

Download: [ windows ][ linux (x86) ]

Made in one day!  Didn't have time to finish my original idea(s), but I wanted to finish something for this compo.  So I made this.

Move around with the arrow keys and bump into things.  Enter restarts, F11 toggles fullscreen, M toggles music.  Have fun!

Update: Added some slight movement (+ some fixes)

Sorry, but, what exactly do you do? Just fumble randomly until you find Holmes? I couldn't get rhyme nor reason out of the other folk. Funny, though.

Sounds like a re-theming of the gameplay from Robot Finds Kitten, yes?  Neat!

Posted an update (same filenames as before).  Some fixes, and things now move around slightly.

Yep.  As I say in the readme it's inspired by rfk, though "rip-off!" might be slightly closer to the truth Wink

Essentially, yes Smiley.  Just wander around and bump into things to talk to them.  If you're lucky, you might find Sherlock before you've tried them all!  If not, at least you get to hear random musings from lots of strangers.  (With the update, they might bump into you too occasionally.)

This is how being from "da hood" is like, right?

Hehe, the random speech is amusing.

I did eventually find Holmes, but the process was as random and the quotations...  I suppose that's PCG for you!
