A Slice of Life
iSg9WGd.gif

It's just a normal day for you in Magoor Town.
You hang out with your friends, craving their respect.
You receive a new Pokémon from your scientist father.
You eat pizza at the famous Phil's Pizza Parlor.
Everything is going to be perfectly normal today!

...This game has nothing to do with time travel, dinosaurs, clowns, thieves, bikers, robots, airships, and pirates.

I love pizza
!

Features:
-Roughly 4 hours of gameplay
-Five unique time periods to explore and have fun in (and a bit more)
-A wacky story about time travel and pizza with even wackier characters
-Multiple playable characters for certain fun sections/puzzles
-An abundance of pizza-related dialogue and flavor text covering every area
-Generation 3 graphics
-An assortment of generation 1-8 Pokémon
-Foxowl's life force
-Awesome music from Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, and more!
-Dino Man

@Ekat - playtesting
@PurpleZaffre - playtesting

Notes:
So yeah, I made another game.
The goal this jam was to make something complete start to finish, and that's what I did! I really enjoyed making A Slice of Life, even if it took a bit out of me. I stayed up working on this a little too late some nights, but I think the finished product was worth it. I feel like I improved in basically all aspects of game dev, which is I guess what making a game solo does. I couldn't have made this stupid pizza game without my great playtesters and their feedback as well as the support and feedback of the Thundaga and Relic Castle communities. So thank you all! I hope you enjoy playing the game as much as I enjoyed making it!

As you can probably tell, I played Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger right before the Jam started. Which is sort of how I got the idea. I'm not sure where the pizza came from. It might have been @Mashirosakura. I regret absolutely none of the music choices I made for the game.

I think if I do another jam I'll do it with a team. Solo dev was draining.

IMPORTANT: If you get stuck on the text puzzle (you'll know it when you see it) don't despair. After three wrong guesses you'll get a hint and if you're still stuck I've included a text file in the game folder with the answer.

Hey everyone! I know this is like... months late, but I've finally finally gotten around to creating the final update to A Slice of Life. Pretty much all reported bugs have been fixed and there's a bit of new battle/bag UI. I was gonna make a small postgame thing but I decided I'd rather just leave it here. The game is officially complete. It was a great jam and I'm really proud of this game in the end. Thanks to everyone who played it/will play it-- it really means a lot to me. Special thanks to @leilou for helping me with the rotation battle bug, a pretty nasty one.

If anyone finds any more bugs, feel free to still report them and I'll try to make some fixes, but for the most part I'm leaving A Slice of Life alone for now. Enjoy your pizza.

(Game is now in version 1.5.0)
