This is my entry for Yaz Jam 3 (2022) https://itch.io/jam/yazjam3

There were 3 themes in this Jam and I chose "Mystery of 6174". There were also obligations: good vibes only, home-made graphic assets only, mainly yellow-green colored. I didn't totally respect the 2nd one because some of the vegetation in my game come from external free plugins.

A game created by Simon Mesnard  https://linktr.ee/simonmesnard

Every new chapter of Francium is made in a different graphic style. Don't miss the other chapters! (see below)


"Francium and the Wheel of Life is a comical adventure game with inventory puzzles that takes place in a world of robots, where all humans are dead except one: the creator of the robots. In this episode, Rosie, the queen of Francium, wakes up in a strange green world where her friends are dumb. She investigates to understand why she's here and what she can do to improve the situation ..."

I developed it in 2 weeks, based on existing assets from my game Boinihi: The K'i Codex, and the robots from previous Francium episodes. Made with 3dsmax, Unity and Adventure Creator.

Gameplay info:

  • Move with keyboard (zqsd or wasd, or arrows)
  • Use or talk with left click.
  • Open or close inventory with right click.
  • Show options menu with Escape.

Known issues:

- Save system should work, but could result in various issues (used items are back, things like that...). It is recommended to play without saving if you have the possibility.

- Cameras did not follow Rosie: it is a Jam project and it has been made in a very short amount of time. Sometimes the camera doesn't follow Rosie as it is supposed to. If you lose Rosie out of the field of view, you can get focus on her again either by trying to move to another area around the lake, or by talking to a nearby character.
