A downloadable game for Windows


This game is made for the $105 Graphic Adventure GameJam.

To reply the question: No all of this wasn't done in 2 weeks, I designed some assets as placeholder to help myself while I was developping the engine and his features.

Those place holder where limited to the basic main character move, and the forest background. All the rest was done during the jam.


Find a way out, take a look on those command first !


Walk (and crouched over walk)Left / Right

Crouch downDown
Enter door / StandupUp
Release / Tidy up the swordX

Launch the game

  1. Download theWhiteCrowParrot.zip or .7z file at your preference. (7-zip is not installed by default on window10)
  2. Extract the folder (anywhere you want)
  3. Execute whitecrowparrot.bat (fullscreen) or whitecrowparrot_windowed.bat

the Corax Engine

The game is powered with an opensource game engine based on PyGame/SDL librarie. This is early alpha and barely usable. But you are tickled by curiosity, you can follow the repo.

I am feeling pretty dumb; I can't find hot-spot that gets the character moving.
I don't want to give away spoilers here. Nothing comes out of the wagon.
I want to play this so badly :-) I peeked at a video and it looks fabulous!
Oh, I will try the C and X and see if that helps.

find out the C button is the first trap of the game :)

Your character is so charismatic!
I seem to have a talent for dying...
Best of luck.


wow .-) - I really LOVE it - not only the game is fun (even if I died soooo many times) but your graphic is gorgeous and your animations are jaw-breaking 
Congratulations :-D (and yes - as said Steven, the Dragons Lairs feeling is quite strong)


I played your game and made a video on YouTube! Easily one of my favorites of the Jam


I love the dumb death count :D

My gameplay (and the game itself a little) is like dumb ways to die: medieval edition hahaha

This game is so pretty, tad on the short side but that's the trade off really - my only criticism would be put the control scheme in the game (even just a list in the esc menu) took me so long to get out of the cart -_-

Thanks for playing !!

Indeed, the button map is one of those many things I had to sacrifice on the altar of "Lack of Time".

That the price to work with my own engine, each small thing like this is big time consuming for implementation :/


Such a great game, funny without words, and so stylish and fun. I loved it and would love a bigger game. Great animations.

Thanks man.

Regards to the pleasure I had to finish that jam. There's a lot of chance that game grow with years indeed :)

Gorgeous animations and backgrounds. I get quite a "Dragon's Lair" vibe from it. The only point of criticism I have is that it forces restarting from the beginning whenever I die. While it increases play time, it also makes experimentation later on in the game a bit more difficult. Fortunately, it's not too long, so it's a minor niggle, but if you end up expanding on it after the jam, perhaps a checkpoint or save system would be useful.

Lol I tried to implement a checkpoint at the middle the story. But it was too late, I didn't achieved it in time. But for sure after the jam, it's a point I have to solve.

Thanks for you playtime anyway !

The graphics look great. Unfortunately I experience a bug where I am not seeing my character in the first screen. So I cant do anything. :(

:) The only bug I see here is: Someone didn't read the instructions (command) and is stuck at first puzzle :D

Haha, sorry for that! :) Cool game! The animations are top notch. The walk cycle alone made me laugh. Great work!

I'm glad you like it.

:) Hope you were able to reach the end without too many frustrations (the game can mistreat players )t !

I have no idea how to open and play this Game.




Download the Zip file, extract and execute whitecrowparrot.bat in the folder. (Only for window unfortunately)

Wish me Luck.
