Very nice game overall, though it could have been better with a more inspired font that was not so big and default-looking. Small bug: the bowl with the fish remains in inventory after it has been put on the floor.

This was so darn good! It's not too taxing on the brain, contains loads of fun easter eggs and references to other movies and has a super cute ghost cat. What is there to complain about? Nothing!
Such a great little game, keep up the awesome work Simon, looking forward to seeing more! =)
Excellent game! I especially liked the visual style, the well written dialogs and the well designed puzzles which didn't require some weird combination of items to solve (a fatal mistake of many other adventure games).
Thanks for making this game.
A really good game. We enjoyed it very much.
Here is a short video we made while playing:Keep up the good work!!!
Great short point and click game. good time waster when bored
I really enjoyed the game and can't wait for more!
I really enjoyed playing this game! The drawing style on both the characters and backgrounds looks very nice and unique. The writing is funny and interesting, which is of course good for an adventure game, makes you want to keep playing it.
We'd be glad to see this game in this year's Game Development World Championship!
Really fun and interesting game!!!!
This game is very cute and cool! I like solving the puzzles or finding items that you need to help Prince the Ghost Cat pass on by getting his needed materials. Also, I like music and the art style for this game. The music is smooth and peaceful to listen and the art style is neat and colorful! I wish there are more games such as this. Thank you for making this game!
Really lovely story and the art style of this game! I loved the characters and how unique they felt. The puzzles were nice, not too hard and fun to work through.
This was a truly Awesome point and click adventure. I really admired the graphic drawn quality of the whole environment. Especially considering this is a game jam submission. I really enjoyed the style and realism of Claude, he might be considered a hoarder, but he is unique. Despite my ending to the game, I loved playing this a few hours ago. This is such a wonderful little game with character. The jazz ensemble and the overall music was amazing, it was both soothing and engaging. I love the absurd foolishness of this game, I hope you go on to create more, and good luck winning the game jam!
I am very happy to see that you've decided to offer your Adventure Jam 2018 game on itch.io as well! Although I know that you already read our compilation article about your and two other games of the jam, I would like to make it clear once again that this was really a fine adventure and I hope that more people will try it out. The whole puzzle design has such a wonderful retro charm, without becoming too absurd; and the ghost cat was super cute. I'm looking forward to more games from you in the future. <3
Cool game... :)
