I can't help. I need to spread the word.

For 5 years, I've been polishing pixels and lines of code to turn a teenagers dream into reality. Ok, we had the Amiga in mind as the target platform back in 1993, and it gets eventually got released as a NDS homebrew, but here it is nonetheless:

You can find more info about it on my blog.

May the source be with you all.

It looks very cute! The visual style reminds me of the Addams Family game on the 16-bit consoles.

Also reminds me of a game idea from my own (pre?)-teenage years, about a little ball that had to travel through the various regions of a school, the classroom, kitchens, playing-field, etc. It was the little ball out of an ink cartridge. Clearly must have dreamed this up while messing around with pens in a boring lesson.

The Adams family was clearly a back-of-my-mind reference when I had to draw glass pipes for the ink. Glad you picked it as a comparison: it had quality pixel art.

I've been told by pixel artists from the game industry that they have to fight a lot against programmers willing to keep their initial "ball with eyes" hero design a lot. And yeah, we sure have lots of time to think about how to abuse school supplies to make all sort of tricks. But I'm glad you had similar plans: it makes it the implementation of a collective subconscious thing ^_^
