"Every now and then you play a game which has a nearly indescribable impact on you and you are not even completely sure why."
Sebastian Standke, Game Curator

"An Afternoon Rippling feels like every late-night bus ride on a too-hot summer’s evening."
Natalie Clayton, Rock Paper Shotgun


Inspired by visual novels and interactive fiction, An Afternoon Rippling is a text-based 2D adventure game about getting lost in a valley after your car breaks down. In your search for the elusive Mechanic, you have conversations with several strange individuals.

beautiful game


Hello, I have MacOS Mojave v.10.14.3, and after download it it says: The app cannot be opened, nothings else. I tried to go to Security and see in case I have any blockages for outside developers, but is not the case, what can I do?

The game looks amazing, congrats!!<3

Shoot, sorry about that! Did some googling, looks like this can be an issue for Mac Mojave. Let me know if this doesn’t work: https://answers.unity.com/questions/1377896/the-application-cant-be-opened-mac-build-problem.html

I'm stuck in the cave. I'm able to access the two rooms, and the wall painting. But I don't know how to get out!


Have you read through all the pages of the magazine yet?

Hi. I played twice, and twice I got stuck at the chess players. No party for me. Is it the end of part 1? I see screenshots here that I haven't seen in the game

heyo, sorry about that — the game is still incomplete, and I've only released content up to the chess scene. the full game will be released soon-ish!

great trailer, looking forward to it
