This was just the funniest thing, had me cracking up frequently with each surprise. Nice job, top game.

What a trip this game ended up being! It went exactly where I wasn't expecting. Great work :D
Gave it a go...
The game crashes consistently when I reach the top of the damn to retreive the ammo. I'm playing the Linux build. Such a shame too because this game is wonderful! To be specific is crashes as soon as the words "I see what you're doing up there!" appear on screen.
Oh damn, sorry to hear that. Did you quit and then continue at some point? I think there's a bug with continuing games that I still need to fix, it could be that.
This was the best thing that I've played on Itch, The pacing was perfect, the voice acting was perfect, the style was perfect.
Although I struggled tofind a couple key items due to that style, the game never has any "cat hair moustache" solutions
Everybody should try this game
You guys have knocked it out of the park again! Another corking adventure thriller, really had me guessing every step of the way (wrongly, as per usual) and the payoff is excellent!
The voice acting was pretty special too, hats off to the amazing peeps that helped you out with that, and hate off to you for making another awesome point-and-click classic! Keep up the amazing work everyone! =)
one of the best voice actor series of my game
Played through this on my channel! I haven't touched an adventure game in a long time, but I found this super engrossing. Great work!
Super amazing game! Gameplay, music, story, and voice acting were perfect! While I'm on the voice acting, the voice acting from everyone in this game was soooo freaking good, like holy crap it was so good! Only had a couple problems, it seems like a poor idea to only let you pull off one piece of meat to feed the dog, especially if you miss what you're really supposed to do with it, I mean, there's arms and legs scattered everywhere, should be able to just pick up another one. The other problem was after I reset the game because I threw the meat without putting the painkillers in it, it crashed when I got picked up by the boat. Still a super phenomenal game! Made a video, hope you enjoy!
Ah sorry about the crash! You can use the cleaver to get more meat, but it's not a very well signposted puzzle, and the visuals make it pretty unclear so a few people got stuck there. Thanks for playing!
The game crashed on me when I met the captain :( You want me to send the crashreport somewhere?
Ah, sorry about that. I suspect there's issues with the save/restore system, I didn't have time to look into it in the jam. Did you save and quit and continue later? If you're happy to send the crash report to email@example.com that'd be super helpful!
Sorry for the delay. You got mail. As far as I can remember, I never saved and loaded, just played right through, but I see a "Save1.sav" so probably I saved. Or the game saved on itself? I don't know :)
Alluvium is a micro-masterpiece, being relatively short, but great in pretty much every way it can be. A pixelated art style and variety of bright colors mask an increasingly grim world as you point & click your way through a constant barrage of life threatening danger, all while the excellence that is Adrian Vaughan's voice guides the way through the story. I did click myself into a corner at one point, but once I corrected things and reached the ending, I was left definitely wanting more.Great job on this, devs. You made a point&click adventure...exciting.
Hey Developers, I played the first like 7 minutes of the game and all I can say is I am blown away. Seriously good job! The narration, the characters, the vision or foreshadowing or whatever when you do something that is going to get you killed... Excellent job! (edit: Just finished the game, you've got real talent, I'd love to see it become a full game!)
Super fun and interesting game!!!!
CRAZY NON STOP, EXHILARATING,OVER THE TOP EXCITEMENT! Really that was very good, the voice acting is fantastic, the tone and theme all flowed very nice, and at any point it could flip into something new. Really enjoyed this, great work
Awesome art, amazing vocals and a story that''' make your head turn so quick you'll decapitate yourself.
Brought to you in a tidy little bundle of a game.
I just love this game. 10/10. The voice acting is also great. :) I Hope you make more games like this!
Another marvelous adventure by you guys! <3 I really loved the voice acting by Adrian and Sally - they've been such perfect counterparts and filled their characters with life. :) The whole art style left me super excited as well. The colors, all the little details... Stunning work. I suppose you'll score another high ranking in the Adventure Jam 2018 with this little baby. <3 I wrote a laudatory article about your jam game and also uploaded a playthrough video for anyone interested. :) Keep up the wonderful work!
Really great game! The art style is pretty cool and it felt solid to play. Great stuff.
This was an absolutely fantastic game with everything from art,story,characters to voice acting and puzzles were so damn good.Everything except story wise this game was better than peridium which in my opinion had way better ending and story as compared to this.But voice acting was, I think much much better than Peridium and plus had a new lady voice actor who did a fantastic job in voicing as a psycho!
This was awesome! Great story, great art, great voice acting, holy cow!! I actually am not a fan of point and click games, mostly because of nonsensical puzzles and going on for to long. I'm proud to say Alluvium suffers from non of that though!

A MUST-SEE BREATHTAKING THRILLER! | Alluvium Full Gameplay Walkthrough
Even though I have played one of your other games in the past (Peridium, I believe) and I loved it, I still didn't expect this game to be THAT GOOD!
I mean, where do I even begin praising its beauty and glory?! From the littlest of details to Voice Acting, plot...EVERYTHING. We see all those "Big Games" out there and I swear to you, they're not even close to being THIS AMAZING!
I 1000% recommend this game! It's absolutely phenomenal! The only "downside" (if you even wanna call that...) was the fact that it didn't last longer!
Keep doing you and making more games like the ones you've already made, cause they're DAMN FANTASTIC!
I wish you all the best and NEVER STOP MAKING GAMES!
Thanks for the lovely comment, really appreciate it! I'm really glad it stuck the right cord!
Stop striking cords!! It's dangerous! Strike chords like every other SANE person. Is this why you're repeatedly writing about murderous schizoid mental breakdowns? Are you suffering from cord striking related acquired brain injury?
Excellent point and click adventure with a gripping story and amazing voice acting
I've been playing lots of free indie games over the week, and this game was one of them. I'm glad this was one of the games I chose to play, because it was intrensting and told the story very well. After playing this I'm now going to check out your other game, Peridium.
Hi there, I'd like to begin this by saying that Alluvium is a truly great game. First off there's the colours...my god the colours...the game is incredibly eye-catching, the artwork is simply gorgeous. Next there's the story, on the surface level it seems simple enough but there are so many twists and turns that I never saw coming, in short, the story is fantastic. Finally I'd like to give praise to the voice acting, it's absolutely phenomenal.
I can honestly say that I can't find any faults with the game, it plays as it's supposed to, and I encountered absolutely no bugs.
All in all, this is a fantastic game that delivers on every front. It has a unique aesthetic to it that catches the eye. The story/narrative is excellent and held together nicely throughout my playthrough. Props to you guys for creating such a great game in a short period of time, you should definitely be proud of what you have here.
Also, I hope you don't mind but I made a let's play of your game for my channel.
Cheers and best wishes to you!
This has been more surprising and disturbing than Peridium... Great work :)
Some really fantastic stuff here. The story is compelling, the artwork is gorgeous, the music is fantastic and the voice work is amazing. The fact that all this was assembled in under two weeks only compounds all that.
I usually have some distaste for point and click adventures, but this really manages to avoid one of my biggest issues with them, and that's the logic behind it all. There were only three times I really got stuck and two were because, I think, I didn't realize items could be combined.
This is a work to be proud of, well done.
As much as I want to finish this game, but I had to stop due to work and my significant other having to go to work. But this is highly intriguing! IT took me almost an hour to play this game due to finding items and ways of progressing through the game. But when I've tried to finish the game, I went back to my saved progress, skipped through the dialogue quickly, but it crashed after a while.......maybe I can try playing the otehr games you made. :)
Ah yeah, more Powerhoof! Love you crazy kids.
Love your past games. I know this one will be great. Don't mind throwing a few bucks your way if it means more great adventure games!
Very impressive game, and it was made in 2 weeks. Nice job. I recommend it.
watch video here:
After Peridium you just know this going to be good. Once again the voice acting is top notch. The music kicks in just at the right time to get you going. Another totally superb game. Big congrats to all involved... :)
I'm staggered by the fact that this was completed within 2 weeks. Very impressive. Great visuals, audio (narration in particular) and I enjoyed the story too. Definitely recommended.
