Vignettes is a collection of short slice-of-life narrative adventures. It was made for Global Game Jam 2022. Since the jam’s rules were a lot more flexible this year I decided to take it easy, so this was completed in about 60 hours instead of 48. (Even so, I didn’t add everything I wanted to add but I am happy that the game is still complete.)

The jam’s theme was "Duality". There is no correct path – these stories are just brief meditations on life. I hope they make you think about your own life and the infinite number of paths that decisions and choices unlock.

The game will launch in full screen mode.

So I drank one cold tea, one insipid tea (new vocab acquired), got a ticket, and did not go on a trip.... great :)


LOL. That tyre thing actually happened to me many, many years ago but I did go on the road trip after getting it fixed and had an amazing solo adventure in my country.
