Here it is, folks: the best game featuring Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek you’ll play in Q3 of this year.
RPGMaker Installers are .exe files so I apologize if your anti-virus raises an eyebrow at the download. I promise that the code is only malicious if you really dislike baseball puns.
So, what is The Closer: Game of the Year Edition? It would be easier to play it than to explain it to you, but if you’re down here in the text rather than up there clicking on a link, I should probably give it a shot. The Closer is an adventure game that takes place between the sixth and seventh game of the World Series. The closing pitcher for New York (you) gave up a massive home run to lose game six and must go on an epic quest to remake himself as a pitcher before he has to pitch again.
Accompanied by your faithful pitching coach, Moose, you will participate in the worst trivia night ever, play an uncomfortable Japanese visual novel, explore an abandoned candy factory, AND MORE.
The Closer: Game of the Year Edition is free to download and always will be free to download, because I’m not enough of a madman to use the likeness of real people and try to make money off of it. The Closer is parody and not intended to be an accurate representation of anything it portrays.
You can download The Closer. Hell, you can distribute it elsewhere if you want, as long as you’re not charging folks for it. Put it on Pirate Bay, for example. Once something is there it can never be destroyed. Just make sure to credit me!
If you want to support my endeavors in game making, please check out Serafina’s Crown on itch.io or vote for it on Steam Greenlight. It’s a totally different style of story, but I wrote some of the dialog (and the creator of Serafina’s Crown did the fantastic music for The Closer!)
