About

 The demo is also available on itch.io, Game Jolt, Indie DB.

Let's make a new point-and-click classic! Justin Wack and the Big Time Hack is an adventure about time traveling, love, and scary-looking robots... The small but passionate team are striving to create something new while still maintaining the cozy adorable feelings we all remember from playing the classics back in the day!

We're going for the classic point-and-click experience - click where you want the player to move, switch to another player when you get stuck on a puzzle, mess around with the inventory to combine stuff. We use an interaction system where menus are only used in cases where more than one action is applicable (sounds weird but plays beautifully).

  • 2D all the stuff!
  • Three playable characters
  • Tons of handcrafted characters and background animations
  • Puzzles in the same vein as back in the day (goats excluded)
  • An inventory system that will never block the gameplay
  • Tons of voice acting and custom-made sound effects
  • Tons of custom-made music to provide that warm cozy feelin'

Languages

Full voice acting in English, but the plan is also to translate all texts to the most requested languages for this genre (we heard that people in Germany really wants to read stuff im Deutsch).

Platforms

We will start with Steam (Windows & Mac), but we're also really hoping for Nintendo Switch. Android and iOS would be nice as well - but we aren't making any promises (yet).

Wishlist on Steam!

 Timeline

 If funded, our aim is to release the game to Steam at the end of 2020. We do feel compelled to point out that this is our aim, and not something that is carved in stone. 

Fancy a t-shirt or a poster? Want to be a tester, or maybe even feature as an NPC (Non Playable Character) in the game? Check out the rewards coz we got some beauties lined up for you...

Note that the rewards without a physical item have an estimated delivery date of December 2020 (when we aim to release the game on Steam). Rewards with physical items have an earlier date because we thought it would be more fun to get the rewards  early - this does not mean that the game will be done at the time the rewards are shipped :)

You'll be needin' at least one of these...
Yes, your happiness depends on owning this poster...
This is the current a mock-up of "The Coveted Deluxe Box". Besides our gratitude, it will contain a USB key with the digital resources (the Steam key will be sent digitally once the game is released). Or if you prefer, we’ll send it to you after the game has shipped and include the steam key in the box 😊. Oh, the box also contains a handwritten note from Pontus or Alberto...
Should anyone trust these guys with their money tho?

Pontus - Programmer since 20 years and a passionate indie game developer - tea guy, cat person.

Alberto - Drops illustrations and animations like nobody's business - coffee guy, dog person.

Samuel - Sound engineer extraordinaire and a custom noise maker man - coffee guy, cat person.  

Justin Wack and the Big Time Hack is a story about characters out of their element, love lost, and hostile agents sniffing around for unauthorized time travelers!

Our three playable characters - Julia, Justin and Kloot...

A lunch time anomaly...

Bumming out at work, missing his ex-girlfriend Julia, something strange is about to happen to Justin...

The switch-up!

 Two gentlemen are about to switch places in time...

Complications...

Agents from the future have gotten wind of unauthorized time traveling…

Meanwhile...

Meanwhile, Julia has moved on with her life…

So what now?

Well, Justin wants to get home somehow (and hopefully one day get back with Julia)...

Julia has moved on with her life. With no one but Oligarch (the stray cat) around, she can finally focus on her studies. She does however seem to be quite smitten with the new hipster in town...

And cavemen just wanna have fun... Kloot is eager to try the local dating scene and experience all that modern times have to offer, but... Something deep inside him longs for simpler times...

All it takes is a makeover...

  Just dropping some love here...

Good times...

Risks and challenges

We are very much prepared for the development of this game to be the usual tug of war between funds and time. And we're ready to tug away!

At the time of writing, the Steam page says “Sometime 2020”? Will we be able to deliver in time? Hopefully! Will we be able to deliver an awesome game? We're confident about this and feel that the demo goes a long way of proving our commitment. Now we just want to do the rest :)

With your help we hope to push one heck of a good game over the finishing line - one that we couldn't deliver without you!
