I absolutely love this game, haha. Its funny and all too real. Plus, the art style is super cute!
Maia and The Cool Kids
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
Made in a couple of days, initially for the Fourth Extra Credits Jam - the theme being Connect.
Maia is a loner and an outcast. She despises "the cool kids". Now that she has to spend some time with them, will she find it easy to connect with them?
The themes are friendship (or a lack thereof), hate and misjudements.
I made this game reflecting upon myself from when I was in middle school and I envied the kids who were happier than me. I was very hateful and unfairly judgemental of them. Little did I know, they actually weren't so bad.
CONTENT WARNING ! This game contains:
- Strong Language
- References to Drugs and Alcohol
- Sexual Themes
- Bright Colours
- and lots of teen angst
- Mouse: Left & Right Button
- Keyboard: Z/Space/Enter, X and Arrow Keys
What changed in version 1.1?
Not much, a couple of bug fixes: one where pictures wouldn't load, making the game unplayable, and one where the wrong music played, starting with the second half of the game.
(Also, the Android version might not work very well, I'm not sure :// )
