Description

Have you ever wondered how trolls have fun


Can't have fun without a little struggle. Make a little sacrifice for the team, so everyone can have fun :)

Take a tour to familiarize yourself with trolls' fun time, as it might be unusual for us. We - city dwellers - do not usually see forest trolls, and this is great chance to gain more information. This interactive documentary will tell a tale of Troll's natural behaviour. This takes on place on same world as previous jam game Troll's Bowel.


Use mouse to play this game. F4 - Fullscreen.


Game was not finished, and bowling does not work :( But game has more than half done, and will automatically continue rest of storytelling to the end, so player can hear the whole story. It may be little bit confusing though, as game will tell every situation, which could have happened depending players actions.

    Troll's Bowel sequence, yay!!!

    My heart melted when I saw your new game, I love to hear your troll stories and I hope you make more games like these in the future, as the care you put on the illustrations, music and gameplay is really touching.

    In this game, I felt like I was playing a game from my childhood, as the ambience is fantastic. The gameplay is really fun and although the graphical part of the game was incomplete, I could use my imagination to see everything else from the story (I imagined the same bowling minigame being repeated but with one troll instead of a pin and next a troll holding another troll and I find it hilarious, it'd be fun to play this way, haha).

    My only complaint is that your voice on the first game was pretty nice and professional, I really think you didn't need to edit it, as I think your voice, as it is, is perfect for the game.

    But I find the game really really cool, you did an excelent job!

    Finally, the Troll's Bowel sequel we've all been waiting for! The art is great, the music fits the tone and the little mini-games in the story are neat. It's a shame you didn't finish it, but it's nice being able to hear the whole story anyway. It's a bit lacking in terms of theme, but it sounds like you didn't get to the bits that involved sacrifice. Also, I got this error at the end of the game:


    ############################################################################################ FATAL ERROR in action number 1 of Step Event2 for object par_narration:

    Moving to next room after the last room. at gml_Object_par_narration_Step_2 ############################################################################################

    Stunning game as always, the art was awesome and the story was fun and interesting, you even managed to get better with sound and dubbing.

    Too bad that it is unfinished, even though I had tons of fun with the finished parts of the game.

    What a nice game! Love learning about trolls. :) I included it in my GM48: Sacrifice compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/GLJFbs0fnfE

    Hey excellent job! Your jam games always feel like I'm in a kids book! Very nice sounds and music and I loved the narration. It was lacking in gameplay but still a really fun and heartfelt experience!

    Good job!

    Nice voice work and cut scenes. I liked the different mini-games included (search for logs, catching the stone). The story seemed really detailed.

    It was a lovely story accompanied with lovely art and sound. The mini-games were fun to play, and the flowers leading to the logs was nice touch. I'd love to see the ending finished.

    Too bad it wasn't finished, the last part was the most interesting :( Nice to see the second part of the trolls documentary! I see your narrative voice was much better this time as you modified it! We can still have a feel of kind of an awkward accent (mostly for the letter s) but it was alright! It also felt somehow more ambitious than the previous troll game. Unfortunately, the sacrifice part is in the unfinished part. :(

      Thanks :) I used Audacity this time and tried get better audio quality ^^ But Yeah, afterwards I calculated that I missed more than 24 hours to other activities, without them I could have finished this on time :P I had also drawn some parts of bowling trolls as equipment, but did not have time to implement in any way.

    A nice game with a nice story. I would really like to see it finished :)

      Thanks :) I am planning to, it is more about drawing, coding is the easy part

    You're really good at narrative! I like how you pieced together mini-games between the story. Thanks for including the whole story even though it wasn't finished.

      Thanks :) I did the narration first and then build everything else on top of that, therefore I could include whole story ^^

    I'm so sad this isn't finished :( I loved the previous one, and I still love what you've done here.

    I can't wait for the next episode of Trolls' life :D

      Thanks :) Yeah, welp it was not finished as I used my time on everything else, but nevertheless I thought finishing it later.

    Starts really fun and interesting , would have been nice to actually play the bowling and to use one of the trolls too.. I guess you had those plans in mind but time was limited. Some really nice ideas laid out!

    Was fun to play/watch what was available.

    Graphics and presentation brought a smile!

      Thanks :) The 48 hours would have been enough, if I had not visit friends etc. The code for bowling was almost ready, but there were few bugs. Should have made it simplier ^^"
