Troll Song is a retro point and click game series starring a race that is so often portrayed as simply the strong, dumb brute - Trolls.  This game series will give them a new mythology and culture.  You play as Clod, one of only a handful of trolls to survive an evil plot to wipe them out completely - the game starts with Clod simply trying to escape and free the other remaining trolls, but the plot will encompass much more.

 

Currently there is only a demo available of Troll Song: Verse One - "Completely Stoned".  It is very short - it will probably only take you around 10-20 minutes to complete - but it does serve as a good introduction to the game plot (with a 3 minute opening cut scene), 6-verb interface and visual style.  

 

After development of the game stalled, we now have a new team with a slightly new focus - after discussion with the new team members - Verse One will be released as a free game in its own right, but thereafter, instead of releasing the game in episodic format, we will develop the whole game which will go on to be a commercial release.  But just to reiterate, before we ge to that stage, we will release Verse One as a complete game, which will take you to the point where Clod has escaped his mountain prison, found a new ally and set off for a Dwarven village that he feels unaccountably drawn towards.

This demo has been sitting on my computer for months as I played and recorded console games instead. I just finished playing through Troll Song: Verse One - Completely Stoned demo and I have to say that while I had a little trouble at first, it's a very interesting game. The transition from pixelated to hand drawn was funny to me, especially as he's standing there looking around. The phrases that he "roars" make me laugh, and even though it's a very short demo, I'm sure that I'll play through it every now and again just to hear "FIIIIING" or "ROOOOOOTS!" At some point, I'll be recording the demo to show on my channel. Hopefully that will get more attention for this project and give you guys some motivation. It's not often that I say I enjoy a demo, but this one I did. It doesn't matter how long it takes for the finished product to come out, I just want it to have the same quality (or better) content.

You have no idea how much the comment means to me. I really appreciate it, and so glad you got round to playing it in the end!

Current news: I have a new programmer, getting an artist on board is proving a little trickier but I'll keep going. I want someone who can match or even improve the existing art if at all possible, because I feel Tino created a lovely style and it fits the game perfectly.

More news soon (I hope!)

This was a cool little demo, I hope that the developers are able to get back to It soon because it has a lot of potential. I enjoyed the voice acting, and the brief story preceding the gameplay was fun, too. Great work, everyone, I can't wait to see the finished product!

Hey, glad you enjoyed it! We will do everything we can to get the full game finished... sadly it can't be top priority right now. (You'll love the game that's taking precedence over this one when you see it though! :-D)

Thanks for the rating and comment, be assured that the full first episode will certainly be a lot bigger than the demo :-)

Nice little demo. I like how you don't have access to all of the verbs right at the start and you had to learn them one by one. I also love the artwork and the opening scene was pretty funny too. FING!

Glad you enjoyed it. I got the idea for the start where you can't do much from Zak McKraken - if you get imprisoned by the aliens all your verbs disappear until you regain your senses, I thought it would be nice to do something similar here and it worked pretty well.

THANK YOU. I'm pretty overwhelmed by the positive response of the GameJolt community as a whole - often you expect positive comments only from a more specific adventure gaming community such as AGS - I only wish we had more time to develop this one!

Hey. It's me again. I took a break from GameJolt, but I felt it was time to come back. I missed you all. Anyhow, I picked up the game again, and I figured out how to start it this time. I thought it was great! I loved the voice acting, and the cut scenes were great as well. Awesome game, man. 5/5

Weird. It won't open for me. I can hear the opening cut scene, but that doesn't mean very much when I can't play the game. Any ideas why it happening, because it seems to be working for all of you. >.>

Have you tried going in through winsetup.exe and playing with the settings? Not sure why it wouldn't work. Maybe try it with a 2x graphic filter and see if using DirectDraw5 or Direct3D makes any difference.

If you still have difficulties I'll see what else I can do. Have you ever had trouble with any other games made with AGS?
