About

Abel Lowen, a Stringshaper, gets woke up by his apartment's alarm clock in the middle of the night. When he'll finally get up, late for his band's rehearsal, he will find out that almost nothing seems to be working properly. What's happening? Are others experiencing the same problems? Why is his neighbour hallucinating in the middle of the hallway? Spanish Translation by Maximiliano Vaccaro (https://twitter.com/maxivaccaro - https://www.linkedin.com/in/maxivaccaro/en)

Amazing world building. I'd love to see an expanded version!

I tried this game because the graphics seemed nice to me, but what really got to me in the end was the music and the story. Really good world building with only a limited number of rooms.

A landlord's Dream builds a huge world through clever writing with only 3 rooms to visit (and a terminal that enrichens the world) that has all your cyberpunk and scifi needs coverd with said terminals, implants, chargers, brainhacking and AI overtakes. Also a fantastic prophet is to be met and calmed by shutting down his visionary brain.
Some rather abstract puzzles are met with some fun puzzles, follow the video if you are stuck. The minimalistic soundtrack follows along with the story and the cool background graphics in low colorcount pixelart.

Find a longplay of the game here:

Thanks everybody for the lovely comments and the helpful feedback!

Also, to answer cat: yes, while we were developing it we noticed how the world was getting fairly out of scope for a MAGS game and this led to an unfortunate series of cuts to the gameplay. We spent too much effort in giving purpose and "life" (though music, sound, dialogue and art) to the few rooms available rather than focusing on puzzles, and it shows.

The good news is that we are planning on working further on this as we speak :) So please stay tuned, if you want, and thanks again!

Interesting setting and good story telling with a deep game world. The graphics are fantastic and the music is fitting. However, there are hardly any puzzles and no real gameplay.
