About Beyond a Total Loss

Story

You are a balding mustachioed dim-witted drunk called John Harry and you just drove your car off a cliff. Lost in the woods and attacked from all sides by strange vicious beasts, your prospects seem bleak. But then a local game warden comes to your rescue and offers you a gun to protect yourself. You just have to sign a little contract… It seems like your troubles are over, or have they just begun?

About The Game

In "Beyond a Total Loss" you decide how you approach people; do you come at them with your gun drawn, do you talk to them, or kick them in the shins? Different people react differently. There is no wrong way, although some approaches might work better than others. Watch your enemies and learn their moves. Defend yourself against them with various guns or by kicking them under the influence of cocktails. But you can also try to avoid them altogether. Or, if they’re (somewhat) human, even talk to them?

Features

Minimal HUD: know your health by the amount of blood on your face. // Explore, shoot monsters, talk to npc's, solve puzzles, shoot npc's and find keys. // Choices you make can have an effect on the lives of npc's. // Some of your choices also determine which of the three endings you get. // "Shaky aim": the guns keeps on moving while trying to aim. // Inventory management: limited (but expandalbe) space, move items around freely. // Mix cocktails - different cocktails have different effects. Some good, some not so good. // No bullets left? Try kicking.
