Professor Crackbrain is about to finish his evil experiment.
Creating a beast so vicious that the world lives in fear and terror. A Weredog!

Immediately, Jay, Jerry and Mike forge out a plan to sneak into the Crackbrain Mansion and come to the  rescue of Bobby.

Professor Crackbrain - and the awakening of the weredog is a classic point & click adventure game full of nostalgic allusions, pixelish puzzles and chiptunish music.

I really enjoyed the story and the atmosphere. The puzzles were brilliant and kept me engaged for hours!

----spoilers ahead----
The only issue I had with it is that I would really have appreciated a content warning about animal cruelty (relating to Biff the parrot and the cat) - or even better if there was no animal cruelty in the game at all, at least not by the player. But otherwise it's a wonderful game!

Thank you for your feedback and got your point.

I'll add a sentence in the games description that it contains comic-violence towards animals.

I put in a complaint about Whack-a-Mole at the funfair recently ,so much death........

This looks like the game I would truly enjoy! Congratulations on the final release!

Will there also be a GOG version?

Thank you Manossg!

The game was proposed to GOG. Let's see if they will accept it.

Fingers crossed they do! In the meantime, I have created a wishlist entry for your game!

Thank you for your support!

Very interesting game with smart puzzles and the pixel art I so much love. The voice acting is very bad though. Sounds like it's from a text to speach program. I would prefer it if the was no voice acting at all instead of this. I'm excited to play the finished version. Have to save the dog!

Thank you for playing the demo and sharing your feedback!

loved the retro style of this demo really took me back to my younger days playing games like maniac mansion. Could you please tell what the music in the background is as I remember it from somewhere and just can't recall where from

My gameplay video

Good luck on the full game

Hi Bronzilles Games,

thanks for your feedback and for the video. I'm really happy I managed to give you the "younger days" feeling. This is exactly the intention of the game.

The music of the game was composed by me, but I tried to stay close to the style of Super Mario, Giana Sisters and other C64 games back then. 

I have recently added voice overs to the game. You might want to check it out as well. 

Best, Kai
