Bower Island - for Petra


Ho, ho, ho, Merrrryyyy Klikmas Petra!!! Bower Island is a printable zine game in which you draw up a happy little house for your animal friends to live in during the rainy season. Explore Bower Island, collect goodies and meet your animal friends. I hope you will fine it calm and comforting.

The .zip has two PDFs - "Bower Island" is for reading on its own in a PDF viewer, but "Bower Island - booklet" is for printing into a zine. To do so, print double sided and use "Flip on Short Edge". If your printing program doesn't specify which edge to flip on, in my experience they tend to default to the wrong way. Chrome's printing feature can specify the edge to flip on, though. Once it's printed out, just fold and staple.

For Petra, who requested:

Bats and animals (like everything, but check out sables if you want to see a particularly fluffy thing today)
Furries and anthro stuff
Cozy huggy affectionate things
Neat sprots
Cozy/chill/cute vibes
queer shit hell yeah
I keep thinking about how Guan's Island on itch plays what with just being explory with no combat or anything, I think that's interesting
Little (semi-)hidden areas

Authorized Likeness


Use the mouse to trace your reflection in your computer's monitor - but you won't be able to actually view your drawing until you press enter. If you think you've done well enough, or awfully enough, you can save it as a .BMP file.

This game automatically adjusts to the current size of your monitor, but is set to work on displays that are a maximum of 3840 x 2160 - wow! It's possible to play on a screen resolution higher than that (and congratulations on your incredible wealth if you do) but you'll be stuck drawing in a 3840 x 2160 box in the top left corner.

Just a funny idea I had a week ago, possibly while scrolling through Netflix. The idea of tracing your reflection or drawing something that you can't actually see until you're finished isn't new, but I think trying to make out your features in your monitor and having to use your mouse to draw brings something different to the table. It can really test your depth perception and memory (especially if you move out of place!).

I realize you could get the same effect and produce a more accurate pic by creating a black screen in a program like Paint and then using a white brush, but to let you in on a little secret I don't think accurate portraits are what make this a fun idea to me.

Source is included, in case hundreds of years into the future someone needs to adjust the maximum drawing area. You'll need Multimedia Fusion 2/Clickteam Fusion 2.5 to open it.

An example of what kind of results you may expect is uploaded as an attachment!

Merry Coristmas, Sergio

Christmas game for Sergio!

Of your requests I mostly just went with 'or draw all the graphics on paper' and 'dream world', and anything else that fits is a nice coincidence. Many mysterious errors in life and Unity appeared, but everything was overcome with no compromises :D

Hope you like my/your pretty game.

I've added Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. Hopefully the lack of mouse control avoids the usual Mac and Linux errors.

I actually made this game with my friend quite a while ago, but it was hidden away on a distant website. So! I uploaded it to GameJolt so that it gets more exposure. I'm still pretty happy with it.

An art game, in that it's a game about making art!

You are presented with a rude image! It's your task to use the drawing tools to turn the rude image into something nice and family friendly!

You can then submit the finished image to the gallery where others can vote on it's niceness or rudeness! Or, go straight to the gallery and rate other works!
