super fun!!! loved this!!!

Absolutely amazing! I do not have even a bit of regrets that spent these 15 minutes playing this game. And for those who asking why the main character was kicked off the train... guys, it is DRYtown;)

What did we do to get kicked off the train?

Just like its black-n-white pixel art style, the gameplay is clear and simple. You can find each character is unique in both personality and visual design, which is quite impressive in such a small game. The graveyard conversations and the ending gave me good laugh. It would be better if the text font could be replaced by more clear one or the audio could be more dynamic.

Very nice game

Amusing and cute. :) I had to explore a bit to progress at certain points (maybe the placement of some objects could 'guide' the player better), but other than that, nice game!





the ending lmao

why did i get kicked off the train?

Fun! Getting a real 'Minit' vibe. The animation is terrific.

Here's my blind run. I give my review of the game at around 9:20 in the video. Decent game, wish there was more.




I love how this kind of riffed on the Legend of Zelda games, if Link was only allowed to use hearts instead of rupees.


hi I love this?? but I'm playing in browser and most of the text goes across buildings and is completely unreadable


It was verry fuuny

Like the animation styile

Made a video

enjoyed a lot this one


Loved the game and the art style! It gave me a smlie :)


I really liked the art style for this.  Impressive how well defined everything looks with such a simple style.


I really loved this! very well done!! Great use of the theme, and a really good idea to use Zelda as inspiration! 

Thank you for sharing your art! 

Thank you so much Nathan! We are really glad you liked the game ^^ And yes Zelda is one of the main inpirations and so is Minit!


Drytown is short, but amusing, and I like how much can be done artistically with such a simple style. It's a good example that not everything needs to be a flashy rainbow to have visual appeal. Shame the town itself was full of leeching con-men...

Good job, devs.

Thank you so much for making a video about Drytown! The minimalistic style of Drytown helped us to make a bigger game in terms of puzzles and animations for the Ludum Dare! Thanks for playing!
