Hi everyone Smile

My name is Yann, I’m a solo dev behind Goloso Games. Maybe you played my previous game, Antenna Dilemma.
I’ve also been working on a game named Inspector Waffles for a couple of years now and I’ve just released a new demo, the one you maybe played during AdventureX this year. This demo is very close to what the game will be when it will be released, feel free to check out! (Links below)

Trailer


Story

Inspector Waffles is a police investigation point-and-click set in a world that combines Noir atmosphere and humour.
In the anthropomorphic animal-populated city of Cat Town, the body of the rich industrialist Fluffy was found after a fatal fall.
But why didn’t this beloved cat land back on his paws?
This is what Inspector Waffles, a witty feline a previous case has left damaged, will try to discover in a wild journey full of  extravagant characters.

Inspector Waffles is an adventure game in which you play a real detective: It is armed with your precious notebook that you will be able to trace the murderer.
Inspect, interrogate, and confront the citizens of Cat Town with the inconsistencies of their statements on a backdrop of pixelart and jazzy music.

In this demo, you will discover the first investigation of the story, the game system with notebook and clues, and several scenes to visit and explore.

Demo link

Steam, itch.io, gamejolt.

Inspector Waffles is planned for a Summer 2020 release, on PC.


And if you any questions or feedbacks, don’t hesitate at all Smile
Thanks for checking it out! Smile

For those that are entranced with retro pixel graphics, this is your game.

they toll for thee.

Antenna Dilemma was pretty good!  Look forward to your new game as well

The transition between the cinematics and the pixel art feels a bit jarring (I like the look of both, it’s just that my brain somehow doesn’t fit the two styles together right) but otherwise this looks great! Strong aesthetics, a design focussed on a solid detective mechanic, and cats!

Hi! Thanks for your nice replies, I really appreciate Smile
I did some progress recently, I have a couple of news to share, so I try to summarize everything into this post. Have a good reading!

AdventureX!

As you maybe know Inspector Waffles was part of the official selection of AdventureX, in London this year.
I spent a wonderful weekend showcasing the last Inspector Waffles demo to this audience full of adventure games lovers.

I was incredibly lucky to have Charles Cecil, the Broken Sword series creator. Broken Sword 1 is my favorite point&click; ever, seeing Charles Cecil playing my game was, at the time, very exciting and very terrifying to observe Grin

AdventureX went very well. It was very interesting to have useful feedbacks from experienced players and journalists. I’ll be there next year (probably not showcasing this time Smile ).


New locations : neighboorhood/police station/...

I’m working for quite a long time on the end of the first chapter because they are so many new things to do/find/gather:  8 new people to interrogate, 10 new items, 12 new locations, a secondary quest… It’s big, it will be more than one hour of gameplay, probably two hours. I’m very close to the end, polishing dialogs and interactions between all these locations.

You’ll be able to go from some place to another with Waffles’ car.

End of chapter 1 is quite soon, I planned to finish it during february. Chapter 2 and the epilogue will be faster to do (also because most of the locations are done), so I’m still planning to release the full game in 2020.
Meanwhile, let me introduce you chapter 2 name: “There is more than one way to skin a cat”. (Not the best name’s choice for translators, but… they’ll be fine Grin).

Gamejolt featuring!

I’m very happy to share that Inspector Waffles is on Gamejolt front page for a couple of days. If you didn’t try the demo yet, it’s maybe the best time to do it Wink
