This game was both funny and fun, I enjoyed the little details surrounding how dumb each suspect is, and how taking the time to find all the evidence can lead to another ending. Never played Animal Crossing before, hope it is 100% just like this 

Not only was this so wonderfully done but the fact you played into the complexities of AI following their loops, leading you to believe they are unaware of how terrible Boner actually was but then... were they aware? SO well done. Loved it.

Wasn't prepared for the names! Put a smile on my face and I liked the idea behind it, would love a more full featured follow up!

It was an amazing game! I loved every minute of it and all of the little details <3 Now that I finished it my life is empty :(((

You should make a sequel of this game, with added mystery and puzzles. I see the potential of this game becoming a masterpiece.

Good news! But it's gonna take a while

cool. I'll be waiting

bruh you just make a knock-off of animal crossing or broken version

This game is really funny! I’ve been laughing my ass off the entire game. Thank you for making such a horrifying and wonderful parody on Animal Crossing. I had a a lot of fun playing it!

when i tried opening this game on my mac i got an error saying

'MACCreatureStreet' cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified 

im using macOS catalina

i dont know how to open the game up to actually play i

Stealing beub's answer from below (thank you beub):

Assuming you're using Windows:

Once you download it, right click and select "extract files". It will prompt you to pick a place to extract to, and it's recommended that you don't rabbit hole too far down your files when doing so (e.g., stick with a folder, rather than a folder within a folder within a folder, etc.). Once it's complete, navigate to wherever you chose and open the folder, then run "Criminalintent.exe". If windows defender blocks it, select "more info" at the top, which will reveal a "run anyway" button at the bottom.

This game was really interesting I loved it! 

When i try and make the screen bigger with Ultra quality it doesnt show the background

hey so I can't find an .exe file anywhere???? I've re downloaded it 3 times and it still just won't work. I've extracted it to my games folder and everything, but whenever i try to run it, it does a little loading screen thing with an exclamation mark or smth and then just never opens. Help????

Unfortunately, I don't know how to troubleshoot this.

The only suggestion I have is to extract the game to a shorter directory path. Something like C:\Games\CreatureStreet instead of C:\users\yourname\downloads\chrome\creaturestreet or wherever you may have put it

Hi! I just played the game but when I talked to Isadore after interviewing everyone, the list of options was just a stack of about 8 empty "choices". I picked one blindly - turned out to be Dwight. I tried talking to Isadore a few times but got the same issue. I'm running the Windows version on Windows 10.

This is a side-effect of the game being developed very quickly and using a third-party asset without the proper time to test everything. I'm not sure how to reproduce it, though I've seen it happen in youtube playthroughs so I know that it happens.

When you pick an option, are you clicking with the mouse or using the arrow keys and E to select?

I tried with both keyboard and mouse, but the same effect happens either way. I saw that other people were having success picking the right option, so I wasn't sure if it was an error on my part or not.

Will you be making a version of Creature Street for Linux?? I want to play but I unfortunately can't

Unfortunately, I don't think we will. Sorry!

hi, I downloaded it for windows. How do I play it?

I cant find the criminalintent.exe file anywhere...help?

Windows or Mac? Are you sure you downloaded the correct version?

Did you extract the .zip file? (right-click the .zip file, select "extract all" and choose a location for it) The .exe should be wherever it was extracted to.

Windows, and yes I did download the correct version. I extracted the zip file in Creature Street - bugfix (I think that’s what it was called) 

After extracting, the folder had two folders (Criminal intent_data and Mono), two applications (Criminal Intent and UnityCrashHandler64), and one Application extension (UnityPlayer.dll) 

After searching high and low for a .exe file and failing, I decided to try the Criminal Intent application. It seemed like that was the right one, but it said that it may depend on other compressed files and that I needed to extract all of them before it would work. Even though I had already extracted it, I pressed Extract All just in case. Once it was done I got the same warning again. 

(Sorry if this is too much detail, I just have no idea what I’m doing lol)

Okay scratch all that I just redownloaded it and it’s working now

Ok, great! That was my next suggestion.

Hi.

First, I would like to say that I am not easily focused on games. But by god this one... this one was the BEST I have EVER played ! It got me focused, I felt... All the emotions in the game. The stress of finding out who and why... 

I really doesn't regret downloading the game, and I could never be more thankful for it. It has magic in it, it has a potential... I just absolutely love it. 10/10. Very much Gucci, does slap, yes please.

I want this for android pls

Hey all. I made my first ever YouTube video of myself exploring this game. Feel free to take a gander! :)

If this sort of promo isn’t allowed then please let me know or feel free to remove my comment.

hey! anyone have support for mac users? i downloaded it and opened it but it crashes within like 5 seconds every time i open it :(

Im trying to download the itch.io app to get the game thru there but it wont open lmao

Hi, I just wanted to say I really love the game, but I have a slight problem. Is there any reason I can't pick the "you did it, Isadore" option? I've tried a few times, but it won't let me click it. It doesn't even glow like the other options when I hover my mouse over it. I could be missing a piece of evidence though. 

Other than that, I have no complaints. It's a great game, and I'd love to see more done with it in the future.

First of all, we're sorry about the accusation menu being a little bugged. This was a very rushed development for a game jam and we weren't able to fix it in time. However, there's at least some advice we can give:

If you're unable to accuse Isadore, try waving your mouse back and forth over the LEFT side of the button to do so. For some reason, it's bugged from about her name rightwards.

If that fails, pick "not ready" and then talk to her again. If her accusation is already highlighted, then you can use the arrow keys and E to move and make your selection.

Thanks for the quick response! I did what you said and clicked the option on it's left  side and it worked perfectly.

Hey!! I just wanted to reach out and tell you guys that  I appreciate your work a lot and think its really cool and interesting!! I loved playing through it and absolutely adored the humor! All in all, its a really fun game with a cool dark twist that is really interesting, and i would absolutely LOVE to see more added on to this game because i think there is a lot of potential for more dark and hilarious content. I found myself really wanting to replay and replay the game and would love to see your brilliant idea expanded upon!  I and a friend of mine are aspiring indie game developers and would love to maybe work with you sometime if you'd like to! We primarily have experience in art, music, and story with some coding experience as well in Construct2 and Javascript and I would be 1000% willing to learn unity to help out with coding as well! we have lots of ideas that we think would be cool to see from a game like this, and i think many people would love to see more but we totally understand if you don't want to continue the game, it is totally your choice! My email is @eggfetus1@gmail.com if you wish to communicate further but i totally understand if you don't! just thought id shoot my shot lol, I truly think your game is great and 100% deserving of its popularity and i would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you! I completely understand and respect that you already have an established group dynamic and I get it if you don't want to include others into the team, and I also totally understand if you simply are just done with this project and are on to other projects or don't have the time, ect. However if you'd be interested in adding more to the game and working together please let me know! 

I'm new to this website so I don't know how to really do anything. I downloaded the content for windows but I don't know how to open it. Can anyone help? thanks!

I loved this game and now I need to adorn myself in merch!

Hi! This might be a stupid question but I'm new to this website, are any of the versions available for Chromebook? 

Thanks

Unfortunately, no. I'm sorry!

Hello! I would love to translate this game to spanish, and if you have any plans on doing so, tell me please!!! Sincerely, I loved it and I thought that all my friends would too, thank you for this masterpiece!!!!

(+1)

Hey! Mac user here. A fix to the game not starting up is to download the itch.io app and download the game through there. The app adds it to the folders needed to make the game work.  Hope this helps someone out :)

thank you for posting this! I thought something was wrong w my old ass computer lmao

The blood stained shirt... I thought it was Dwight... I sent him down the river... I CAN'T TAKE THE GUILT!!

Hello! I was wondering if the game has copyrighted music, because I would want to record it and post it on my Youtube channel.

(+1)

It does not! It has three fairly awful little loops of music that I wrote. You're good to go!

Thanks!

When I downloaded the game for whatever reason I can't extract it.

I'm sorry, I don't know if I can help you. Are you sure you downloaded the correct version?

Yea the windows version but I can't extract the compressed file .

Is there a specific message it gives you when you try to do it?

(+1)

love this game. even more than i love new horizons. thank you for making this art piece.

I looked through some of the comments but couldn't really find an answer to my problem.  I'm not really much of a gamer or anything lol so the problem might be stupid but anyway this pops up when I try to play it!

Error Message

I have it all extracted and the game is on my desktop so I don't think it's a problem of being in a folder inside a folder?  Just thought this parody looked super funny and would be a good laugh for me and my friends lol

I'm not 100% sure it's your problem, but that's the message you get when you try to run the .exe file still inside the ZIP archive. Are you sure you're running it from the folder you extracted it to?

(1 edit) (+1)

oh that must have been what I was doing because it's working now!  The music is cute lol, thanks for responding!  It's sweet that you take the time to respond to all these comments over simple mistakes lol

Hello! Is this game open-source? I haven't downloaded it yet, but I'm interested in making some translations/ just messing with the code.

Thanks

No, sorry! 

(+1)

I completely understand! Had a great laugh, great job.

hello! thank you so much for making a mac version- i pressed the 'Mac version!' button in the development log and downloaded it from there, but i think i must have downloaded the windows version somehow, because when i run it it says 'You can’t open the application “ Criminal Intent.exe” because Microsoft Windows applications are not supported on macOS.' am i missing something? is there a separate download for the mac version? let me know. thank you!

Click "download now" on this page, then "no thanks, take me to the downloads."

When you're at that page, make sure you select creature-street-osx-test.zip

Edit: I changed the display names to Creature Street (Windows) and Creature Street (Mac), because we're all about professionalism here at FloTeam

Thank you so much! You are awesome

(+1)

Could i make a youtube video on your game, i'd put the link to download it in the desc

Absolutely!

(+1)

Thank You

I have a windows (X1 Yoga) and was able to download and extract just fine, however when I try to run Criminal Intent, it will pop up briefly with a loading bar (as in the screenshot) and immediately disappear every time I run it. Really looking forward to the game, any advice?

Well, for one thing, that's not a loading bar. That's Unity's crash window, but I don't see any kind of error message or anything indicating what happened.

The only suggestion I have is to extract the game to a shorter directory path. Something like C:\Games\CreatureStreet instead of C:\users\yourname\downloads\chrome\creaturestreet or wherever you may have put it

(+1)

Wow! Can I translate the game in Spanish?

Sure! I could send you a copy of the script, and if you translate it I can put up a version in Spanish

Yeah! Ok!
