The Curse of Dwight Periwinkle
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Taking a look at the idea of anarchism, and the modern dislike of government, this is The Curse of Dwight Periwinkle: a humorous, satirical visual-novel-point-and-click-ish-musical. Featuring HD cartoon graphics (up to 2560 x 1440px), spontaneous musical performances, and an appearance by Friedrich Nietsche as a slice of pizza, this is a fully voice-acted visual novel.
Gonna tell you a story 'bout a man named Dwight
in a town of Lor so raggedy blue
the town of Lor, it ain't got no living man
Oh no, not anymore!
Oh, from the highways to the byways
we all can't settle down.
Ellie was just a child in the blue town blue
born under a black and amber sun
the saloon spun once on its wheels;
we all charged up to the hills
and left her standing there all alone.
Oh! gotta sing about the curse of the man:
There is a town called Lor where the king has been absent a number of years, and a movement for independence is swelling. Enter Dwight J. Periwinkle, a wisecracking (mildly criminal) layabout into the Flanarchy Society (yes, they have flans). Enter Amy Voight, a journalist who's definitely siding with the king, come hell or high water. Enter Ellie, a precocious seven-year-old pocketrocket. To her, life's a playground.
This has been two years in the making; here it is at last! Recommended price $4.99 to support the author and future projects, but otherwise you can enter $0. Mac, Linux, and Windows supported, and official wallpaper included in the distribution. Hope you enjoy, and I look forward to your comments!
