A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The tragedy of the situation is that while being one of the most valuable objects in Kaisar's posession, it got stolen in most peculiar circumstances. To the untrained eye it would seem that the Evaluation simply vanished from this layer, ceasing to exist in a split of a second. However, the smell of electricity left in the air after that occurence told another story.

[update May 3rd 2020]

Fixed the game breaking bug that instead of opening a container crashed the game.

Install instructions

No installation needed, it's a standalone game. Just download and unpack it.

IMPORTANT: if you have problems opening this game, download the itch.io app and open this game through that app - works like a charm then.

i'm not a gamer but i made an account just to tell you that you made my childhood Covert Front has a special place in my heart and you're a genius. thank you. 

The same problem happened twice more. It seems to occur when I've pushed down the centre and right levers on the big, gray device, but not the left lever, and then try to reach the room with the large, orange electric device. It happened both when I tried to reach that room from the right and from the left. It doesn't happen when I've pushed all three levers. I'll quit playing this game for now and hope to get a solution so I can finish it later!

Same issue, even after restarting a new game ! I'm quite sad cause I loved the style

I finally fixed it. Sorry for the delay on this, but, you know, pandemic and all... This bug is gone and game is playable all the way through again.

Thanks for your patience!

Hi! I just downloaded and started playing the game. This happened to me twice, everything froze (including cursor movement) and all I was able to do was to force quit the game via my keyboard.  It seems to be the same error message twice, but I wasn't able to scroll down. What is this?
I'm running itch on an iMac with Mojave, version 10.14.6

I have the same problem! i tried reinstalling the game & putting it into different folders but nothing worked. I'm hoping this gets resolved because it seems like an amazing game.

Thank you so much! :)  Looking forward to try it out tonight.

Wow.

Words cannot describe how much I love your style and appreciate the effort you put into everything. Game ran very smoothly for me, and I'm glad the transition to Game Maker was worth it. Can't wait for more!

A managed to make the game 100% crash on reading the torn note. 

Here is the save file: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/d20aae65dfe2752116b853aa19a99bd6 Just load it and click on the note in the inventory

Error:

Looks like one variable didn't register at all.

Did you manage to reproduce this bug on another playthrough? Or was it just one-off thing?

amazing game!!! good job man

Glad to see Kara agian!

I cant figure out how to download and or open it at all!  

GRRRR!

Very cool, was a bit lost on the center electric point. But I found the hidden piece under the floor. Very nice, enjoyed it a lot.

What's with the portrait?

what do you mean?

Of the Kaiser. I didn't use it anywhere as far as I can remember. Is it a red herring?

Muy bueno! ¿Puede que exista algún tipo de influencia de Lynch y Twin Peaks? Me encantan todos tus juegos. 

Saludos desde Argentina :) 

Awesome as usual.

Hey Mat,I have a friend who run this game and display a"Not a valid win32 application"window. (He use Windows XP)

This game only support for 64 application?

I don't think GM supports XP.

I can't seem to play the game, It shows "Unable to find game!!:" and it instantly closes.

I'm using the Mac version

Ah the problem has been resolved. It seemed to be a Gamemaker issue, the way i fixed it? well... i just moved it to a different folder...

thanks for the follow up.

It seems Sierra has problems with game maker when it's in the Downloads folder...

I'm having the same problem - it's the same one I've had with your last 3 games on the Mac, Mateusz- 'Unable to find game'. It's really frustrating. I've moved them into all kinds of different folders, even onto a Backup HD, but it's the same problem every time. I'm on High Sierra, latest version and have the System Prefs set to  'Allow Apps' from any developer. Is there no other way round it, something in the coding?

No. that's on the SIerra side.

All my apps are now licensed and signed by apple developer (me). They should work, but Sierra just won't have it.

Not sure if this helps, but I've found a workaround for Sierra. If you open the app's resources folder (/[path to folder containing game]/the\ Peter\ Navarre\ Crecy\ Evaluation.app/Contents/Resources/) and copy everything in that folder to the app's support folder in your user library (/Users/[your username]/Application\ Support/com.mateuszskutnik.crecy/) and then run the game via the Terminal app (Utilities folder) using the command "/[path to folder containing game]/the\ Peter\ Navarre\ Crecy\ Evaluation.app/Contents/MacOS/Mac_Runner", it works perfectly, minus some temporary glitching with full screen.

Great game by the way! Well done as always!

Finally got it to work by dropping it onto my Backup Leopard partition. Great little game, thanks Mateusz.  Damn Sierra!

I solved this by copying the application (after unzip) into my Applications folder and running it from there.

As usual, it's an immense pleasure to play your game. It's clear that your style has evolved. As for the quality of the game, there is anything to say. As usual everything is fluid, no bug or something like that.
It made a long time that we had seen Kara, hoping to see her again in a new conver front maybe? ;p

That was awesome, can't wait to see what you do next!

I'm not experiencing any of those problems- maybe it's a connection issue on your end? 

Neither am I, it ran smoothly on my part.

@DayDun, which version did you run? PC or Mac?

This game is rather simple in terms of CPU usage, and it runs in 60 fps. Should run silky smooth. :D

It usually occurs the other way around. Windowed mode tends to slow down games. 

Nevertheless, happy you were able to resolve the situation.

I don't have any of these problems, completed the game fine. It must be your computer?
