Clam Man 

is the story of the Clam Man. Intriguing, isn't it? Yes, it's true - he is a clam and yet also a man. This is not a topic of debate, it is fact. We've confirmed it while working on this game. Using science.

"He certainly is a clam man." - Playtester

Thank You, Playtester - we couldn't agree more.



But to be more specific: This is the story of a man, recently promoted to junior sales representative, enjoying the comforts and leisure of lower-mid-level office work. However, things suddenly take a turn for the worse, and the Clam Man is cast into an adventure full of danger, suspicion, and mystery. Join him, as he unravels the conspiracy behind the tragic event that befalls him, and fight to restore CLAMMY JUSTICE to the world of Snacky Bay.

WHOAH WHOAH WHOAH ENOUGH WITH THE JOKES What is all this about even

Clam Man is a point'n'click adventure game, with an emphasis on story rather than puzzles. We wanted to create a game focused on the parts we loved about old school adventure games - the story and the jokes. It's a simple, entertaining game where you explore the world and interact with it's inhabitants. Oh, and we did throw a few puzzles in here and there, too.



IS THE CLAM MAN FOR ME?

I don't know you, but I'm sure you're a pretty cool person. I'll just ask a couple questions to figure that out:

  • Do you enjoy story-driven games? 
  • Do you enjoy absurd and strange comedy? 
  • Do you want to relax and play a game where the primary objective is to make you laugh at said strange comedy?
  • Have you got a thing for ridiculous underwater settings and weird, nonsensical stories?

well yeah you know in that case it's definitely for you



Much love,
//Team Clam

Point & Click adventure game that is less about inventory items and more about the story and weirdness in everything around you. I really adore these adventure games that try hide a lot of content and references in every nook and cranny that you dont really need to interact with. There is a lot of heart in this small story if you have the patience to explore the life of this everyday clam and the case of the missing job. 3,5/5

Hi! I'm really enjoying Clam Man so far. Interessting story, charming characters, top notch protagonist and actually some good jokes. Good job!

But I'm stuck. In the backroom office at the club. I've read and clicked all there is, but there is no clickable prompt to leave the office / exit the screen. Clicking on the door does nothing. Did i miss something?

(+1)

Glad to hear you're enjoying the game!

To exit the backroom, you have to interact with everything in there. That's four cabinets,a desk, and a piece of paper. (if I recall correctly) When you've interacted with everything, Clam Man should walk to a corner of the room and trigger a dialogue. Have you tried exiting and reloading the scene? Or maybe there's a tiny object you missed? Hopefully this solves your issue, let me know if it doesn't!

Hey, thanks a lot for the quick response. You were right, I did indeed miss something. Shame on me. ;) I could've sworn I clicked everywhere.  My guess is, it was the single glass of mayo at the door, which I forgot. Anyways, it worked, thanks again for the help, very much appreciated. And off to see what the shell he's is up to now... ahm, sorry...

Not at all, just glad it wasn't a bug! :) Hope you enjoy the rest of the game!

Hello! Clam Man looks very fun! Unfortunately for some reason once Pete enters my office no matter how many times I engage in dialogue with him he simply...does not leave? I have gone through all three of the dialogue options and nothing changes. I'm assuming this is a bug but I will be Very Embarrassed if this is simply...a puzzle. ^^;;

Hi! This may be a dumb question, but is the fourth option hidden away on your screen? You can either scroll or click the arrows to see more dialogue options! Asking because a few others didnt realize or were running on machines without scroll wheels on their mice!

If not, can you send me a screenshot of the problem? And thanks for the kind words!

That was it, thank you so much! Clicking the arrows didn't do anything which was why it was confusing, but scrolling worked.

Thank you so much again for the fast reply! I can't wait to enjoy the rest of your game. <3

No problem!! Glad there was an easy fix! :)

Hilarious game! The writing is fun and the humor is on point :) I saw you guys were working on a sequel (which is great!). I'm kinda hoping for voice acting for the sequel, I think it would help make the game even more approachable. If not VA, then maybe consider giving each character a unique "talking sound" (for reference see: Undertale, Animal Crossing, Underhero). 

That aside, keep up the great work and fantastic jokes! :)

Thanks so much! The prologue to the sequel is actually out already, and you can play it here on itch! What's more, it also has partial voice acting! :)

This game was fabulous, please make more.

Really cool game, I enjoyed everything! the art style of it is so nice and I can't wait to play it :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Thanks for letting us know, that sounds really interesting! Definitely checking it out!

EDIT: aaaand enrolled!

Yaaay how exciting! Good luck in the competition! :D

This game is honestly hilarious and refreshing. I don't know why this game isn't as popular as it should be (deserving so). I also petition that if you were to cast Clam Man in a movie it should be played by Martin Freeman.

if this game isn't amazin looking then my name aint guybrush threepwood. and so inspirational as an aspiring dev (and, truth be told, aspiring clam). aspiring, inspiring, perspiring... this game has it all. well, if there's no perspiring, i want my money back.

I can confirm that there is at least one case of perspiration in Clam Man. Everyone's underwater though, so not sure if you'll notice.

I feel like this was made by Swedish people
