Lovestorm - Oddworld Dating Similator
Here's a little game we were working on, since around 2015, until we eventually gave up on it. Well, to say it's but "a little game" would be an understatement as the project turned out to be of much, much larger scale than originally conceived.
The original idea came from one of the JAW employees, who in response to some people on the forums who were concerned about what used to be called "Abe HD", and now is New 'N' Tasty, jokingly replied with something among the lines of "Abe HD is going to be a Dating Simulator with go karts!". Little did they know there was a team trying to make this crazy idea a reality.
Unfortunately, due to the constantly increasing project scale, no consensus on the game's ever-changing direction (for which, I am the one to take the blame), difficulty finding a "full-time" writer, time-issues, and other problems, sadly, the project had been shelved.
What was saved, however, is a couple of tech demos we'd like to present to you. Keep in mind, none of them were made to be seen by the public, so all of them are rough around the edges and we're aware of their shortcomings. We're releasing it because it'd be a shame if the talents of the graphical (Guineapiglet, FennecFyre), writer (Fraki), and music department (Nepsotic) went to waste, unnoticed.
(Pick "Lovestorm0.03demo" for the most complete one, but feel free to try the other ones, too, they're different!)

The final demo made, the most serious (in terms of scale) one, soon after Fraki joined the writing team, around september 2016.
A short test of movable / scrollable camera, also a showcase of Guineapiglet's beautiful bg art of Alf's Rehab & Tea
, around june 2016.
Despite the name, it's actually the first tech demo made. May 2016.
