Description

“Negative Nancy is a choosy no-no adventure for people who have had enough. An interactive narrative where you can only say “no” (or nothing at all). Your choices control the story.”

You are Nancy, a retail clerk who can only say “no!”. You work a terrible job at Megamart with your best friend, but most of the time that’s the least of your problems. Annoying StreamTubers, delusional bosses, and angry customers so divorced from reality that they’re paying it child support. If they want to take you on they'll have to get in line!

Play as Nancy in a short game with four unique, branching stories. Help Nancy express herself by navigating tense and delicate situations.

All the fun of working retail with none of the pay. You’ll be solving crimes, serving customers, making and losing friends—just like real life!

History

FEED are a small indie game studio based in Melbourne, Australia.

We prototyped Negative Nancy as our entry for for GMTK Jam 2019. It was very well received, ranking in the top 20 of submissions. A few YouTube influencers even racked up millions of views covering it on YouTube.

We decided to development a commercial version of Negative Nancy while living at Spelkollektivet, an indie game collective in a tiny village in the south of Sweden. Our stay (and Nancy's development) was abruptly interrupted by COVID and our hasty return back home.

One quarantine over a year of remote work in lockdown later, we're psyched up and finally ready to launch!

  • A binary choice interactive narrative where you can say 'no' or nothing at all.
