I've been on an odd point & click kick lately and am glad that I found The Insector. Despite being an early build, it has a good foundation going for it with the cast, personalities, and plenty of charm. I also find the little 2D figures work super well in the world. Weird about the alien clown makeup though...I may not be the best insector, but I'm the best there is. Good job, devs.

I cased the crack!
And you found the secret alien dialogue! you are the first person I know who has found it unprompted so congratulations!
Sorry the game is so short, we're working on a more complete version right now. With more cases to solve and some other improvements.
I always have a good time with investigation/detective games and this one leans into that in a great way. Cute character designs and areas that explore what a world filled with bugs is like! The writer certainly loves their puns (there were so many good ones)! Props also for having an NB character!
Thankyou for playing our lil demo! And yes our puns do pack a PUNch and we have a bunch!
I downloaded this and it wouldn't work, it kept saying there were problems? Can anyone help me :') I really want to play this.
What exactly did the error say? I might be able to help you get it to run.
Ok, I tried opening it again and this time it said:
(my sd drive)\users\(my computer username)\OneDrive\Desktop\InsectorTD\Binaries\Win64\InsectorTD-Win64-Shipping.exe" InsectorTD
CreateProcess() returned 2
and that's it...? I think the last time it said something different but I don't remember what
Hmmm I've searched the error and maybe your antivirus software could be causing the issue, Link 2.
It seems like people also get this error if they don't extract the game files before trying to play?
very fun game, and the art is amazing!!!
very cool game, but you can still talk to stephen after he disappears or whatever he does.
Yes haha it was supposed to be him awkwardly camouflaging into the background, we'll work on making that more obvious in the full version.
very cute game and artstyle, and solidly designed too! looking forward to seeing more from you
the only critique I have is that you might want to have the camera zoom in a little more when entering the smaller rooms, as the 3D environment sometimes got in the way of clicking on things
Thankyou for playing! Yes you're completely right. We've already implemented camera zoom controls for the full version.
i normally dont comment on games, but the character designs are so cute :D!!!!!!
Omg kate is a nonbinary i love this
Thanks for telling me up front, I almost wanted to donate and play the game. I'll find another game.
You need to back off. Do you have nothing better to do than not support a good creator because of ONE minor detail that you don't care for? And do you know you're contributing to the world's problems? Because you are, you transphobic pile of garbage.
I feel that they’re being rude for a good reason, though.
well, he certainly won't gain more respect or appreciation for you with this and the other rude responses.
the op said she loves the small minor detail, and I guess there are surely people that would support this game because of the small minor detail.
why is it wrong if an other person feels the opposite?
another chance for developers in general would be to focus on more important aspects of the game and do not make sexual statements at all. that would be my preference
Ewwwww homophobic 🤮
bro the only thing you need to find is friends
So I use Ubuntu... I don't know how to start the Linux version, and if I open the Windows version with WINE it's really laggy and dark
Unfortunately we didn't get to test the Linux version properly in time for the Jam release. It seems to works for some people and not for others.
But if we do continue with this prototype a proper Linux and Mac version will be one of the goals.
Thankyou so much for playing our game! I've subscribed to your channel too, looking forward to more videos!
does it works with 32 bits computers?
yes but ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm no
The game was made for a game jam we didn't have time to test or build it for 32 Bit. Maybe in the future though.
amazing 10/10 i want to kiss mothlowe
This game has a lot of bugs ( pun )
This game is the absolute best! Love ya work!
Very fun and intriguing game. The characters are very charismatic. Can't wait for the complete version. Congrats on your game.
