A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Welcome to Sticks and Stones, a narrative RPG created for VGDEV, the student game development club at Georgia Institute of Technology. The game was made for Windows and macOS.

Starting college is hard enough as it is, being in an unfamiliar environment and interacting with new people all on your own – having to deal with anxiety on top of all of that doesn’t help. Seeing your new peers turn into monsters in the night also doesn’t help. Play as Elly, the college freshman, as she goes through her day to day life. Balance your anxiety and will power as you interact with new people, survive battles with nocturnal monsters, and try to uncover these monsters’ secrets.

How to play:

- This game is designed for keyboard only use (READ KNOWN BUGS FOR MORE INFO)

- Use arrow keys to move around

- Press Z to interact with things

- Esc opens your pause menu

 

We may be missing some helpful flavor text here and there, so if you feel stuck, try interacting with some objects or doors.

 

Known bugs:

- MUST use a mouse in the pause menu

- USING A MOUSE IN THE MAIN MENU BREAKS THE MENU; you'll have to alt-f4 out of the game if this happens

- You can’t go back from a submenu in combat, so if you pick something, you’ll have to commit to it

- The options buttons in the menus don’t work quite right, try to avoid using them if possible
