The (not so) classic Point & Click Adventure where perspective changes everything! Witness Port Valley's Election Day from 3 points of view and find out what's really going on in this bizarre town.
“Attractive pixel art, wacky characters, all sort of hi-jinks… it’s going to be a game to look forward to. It also has a dog.” - Indie Games Plus
“The writing is fresh. The puzzles, excellent. It feels much more than a nostalgic love letter.” - Alpha Beta Gamer
“They're exaggerating.” - The developer
Or should I say “plots”?
In the full game, you’ll see Port Valley's Election Day from three points of view:
A lazy Asian food delivery guy… a mysterious plumber…
…and well, someone else.
(*Not actually a playable character.)
These unusual "heroes" will be forced to interrupt their boring lives and get ready for action before it's just too late. Work, revenge, political conspiracies, a banana balloon… it seems everything was meant to clash on this specific day.
It's time to face the crossed paths of Port Valley’s bizarre citizens and unfold an obscure plot that seems to be tying together these apparently unrelated stories.
Features of the Full Game
There are many of those!
Three plots, three main characters, three difficulty modes, three candidates… three chances to unfold a bigger and complex story.
A renewed yet classic Point & Click interface.* (*May not be that renewed.)
A humoristic and light-hearted tone with annoying self-aware humor. (Which doesn't necessarily mean this is just a comedy…)
Active NPCs. They're not just there to give you items. They also have their objectives, which may be more important than yours.
A day-night cycle. (This would've been SUCH a big deal back in the 90's.)
About [the competent DEMO]
The game is still in development, but a brand new demo is available in English and Spanish. (Forget about the original demo). (That never happened.)
[the competent DEMO] is an alternative one-hour version of one of the three parts of the game: The Delivery Guy Plot.
The puzzles have been simplified and the story has been modified to fit the new length, but it may work as a first taste of Port Valley's mechanics and characters.

Extremely glad I checked this game out. Funny in a sarcastic and witty way, which is refreshing compared to all the games out there with the serious plot-lines. It had its challenging moments, too! There were a few times I had to double-back to certain areas to figure out what I missed.
Point and click games have always been a firm favourite of mine, and I've always found that the ones I've enjoyed the most have been the self-aware, comedy-laden ones. So you can imagine how I feel about this game, which is incredibly self-aware and packed full of humour with every character oozing sarcasm and wit.
Of course, games like this also need to make sure they challenge the brain, but never fear, because Port Valley ticks the box on this aspect too! The puzzles are very well thought-out, and provide a good enough challenge without being too daunting (although the demo apparently has simpler puzzles than the final game will have, so perhaps my poor brain has just had things too easy!).
In short, the characters are awesome, the story is awesome, the puzzles are awesome and the whole feel of the game is awesome. Definitely give this one a look if you're a fan of the Monkey Island (oops, sorry, Mo***y Island) and Broken Sword series!
WrongPixel, you keep up the awesome work, this was great fun =)
Really fun game! I'm loving the humor in the game, not sure what the story is so far but I'm sure it'll be good based on the first section. Took maybe too long to solve the first puzzle, and could use some tweaking, but not bad. Made a video, I hope you enjoy!
This demo is super promising, a very meta, funny, point and click game reminiscent of Thimbleweed Park and similar games of old like Sam and Max or Discworld. I'm curious to see what the full game has in store for us :P
Really cool game! I like your humor guys! Even thought this game made me think a lot about thimbleweed park I still had a lot's of fun while playing it!

Loved the game! I didn't quite do a full lets play in this video but I very much enjoyed the humor and just the general flow of the game. After playing it I read that the look and feel of the game has changed a lot as you rebuilt the demo. I'm really excited to see the full version of the game and i'm actually wanting to replay the game in a future stream. I grew up in the 90's and i felt very much in my atmosphere in this game. I grew up playing kings quest and quest for glory I just love the point and click genre and you put a nice spin on it.
Thanks for playing! Glad to see (literally) that you had a good time!
And yeah! When the original demo was ready I felt that a couple of things could be easily improved, and little by little… well… I ended up with something completely different. But these things happen. I guess.
