===DESCRIPTION===

BINKY XXI is a short walkabout game starring you in the role of Binky, who is looking for their boyfriend Ruff. Can you find Ruff, deep in the clutches of Robolloyd's deadly, disturbing, disgusting, scary, scummy, stagnant, trap-filled, terrifying, triangular, haunted castle? Probably!

Once the game has been launched on your computer device, you can press the spacebar to advance the opening explanation. Afterwards, you can move Binky around the world with the WASD or arrow keys. Press spacebar again at any point to try to interact with an object you are standing above- such as an open door, a locked door, a secret door, etc. Who knows what you'll find? I do.

===THEBINKYZONE EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THE DEVELOPERS===

Interviewer: Finally, tomorrow is the release of "BINKY XXI", can you tell us at TheBinkyZone about it?
Developer 1: So... We got our Halloween holiday break early, and all of us decided to have a party at the local haunt.
Developer 2: Literally! A real haunted mansion. I saw a ghost!!
Developer 3: No you didn't, it was just a sheet on a broom!

Interviewer: What was your experience like at the mansion?
Developer 1: Yes well. The fruit juice we had catered was pretty strong, it affected our faculties pretty bad.
Developer 2: Don't even get me started on the catering... We had to carry it to the mansion ourselves!
Developer 3: We had such a wild time, when we got back to the office that afternoon, we realized developer 4 was missing!

Interviewer: What happened next, and how is developer 4 doing today?
Developer 1: It was such a scary experience, we figured it'd be great material for the next Binky game.
Developer 2: And they say that to this day, what's left of him still haunts that mansion... That was a week ago.
Developer 3: We actually just forgot the directions to the mansion, so nobody's been back to check on him.

Interviewer: That's IT. The standards of your company make me sick. I refuse to continue to support such a dangerous workplace!
Interviewer: (stands up, knocking their chair over, and leaves the room)
Developers: ...
Developer 2: Hey, they left their box of donuts behind, I call dibs!!

I could listen to that ending music for hours. Excellent choice for ending music, and sounds like a solid remastering of it to me!

Super cute game. Well done. :)

That was cute. I enjoyed the

That was cute. I enjoyed the sense of humor a lot.
I also like how Binky is constantly reacting to things in the castle by thinking about how Ruff would love it.
I was surprised that so many questions I assumed would be left unanswered were addressed by the end of the game.

Jesus!

That last cutscene felt brilliant. I was really like, why haven't I thought to do that, but it's really unintuitively intuitive if you feel that. I also love that the different directions place you in different places. It feels really chaotic. Brilliant!

Thank you! I am so glad with

Thank you! I am so glad with how the finale turned out, especially with how simple the code was :) And yes, I had so much fun with the randomized directions. That only happened cause I was too lazy to update the anchor point of the different animations, and it works out better for that P:

lol

I've had that happen to me before while making a game, but I always fix it, I'm so glad you didn't.
