This game was created from scratch in two weeks for AdventureXJam 2020.

Available with Spanish and Italian subtitles

I'm proud to announce that Hair of the Dog has had all of its bizarre and quirky English texts translated into Spanish and Italian.


Play time: 1 hour

After a mysterious explosion over Victorian London, Cummerbund Bandersnatch visits his uncle to find he's been experimenting with a new formula he's created in an attempt to give himself a "good time".

Seduced by the promises in his uncle's journal, Cummerbund decides to drink the same formula and discovers that his life will no longer be the same again (at least between the hours of 8pm - 8am daily).

Can he reverse the effects of the formula before it's too late?

Playing with time

This point & click adventure game can be played in "real time". Meaning that if you play it between the hours of 8pm - 8am some of the scenes, objects, actions and characters differ to those found during the rest of the day. However there is a way to control time if you are in a rush!

It's highly recommended that you read Bandersnatch's indispensable "How to play this game" guide before playing.

Thank you so much for letting me know about this, I loved every second of it! You've nailed the ridiculous humor perfectly!!

Awesome, glad you enjoyed playing it! Your commentary is a joy as always ๐Ÿ˜

Hmm. Sound disappears as soon as I mouse over any of the buttons in the start menu.

Ooh, that's a new one, I'm not even sure how it would do that. :)
Which OS are you using?


Thanks! Iโ€™ll look into it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Just to confirm, you mean the main menu in the game right, not the Windows Start menu?

Yes, it was. But I just tried the new version and it's working fine now.

Hooray!! ๐Ÿ˜


Ace little game. Great humour and story, the puzzles are a good difficulty level too. Definitely going to keep an eye out for more titles from this developer. 


Thank you! I have just launched a demo for my latest game "Lucy Dreaming" which is another pixel-art point and click game. :)



Amazing job!! And I love the old school game mechanics. <3 <3


Thank you! I love old 90s point and click adventures! ๐Ÿ˜

Amazing! You're the biggest fan!


So glad you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜Š


The game is just absolute dandy. Loved the art style and the story.

Yay, that's great to hear! My new game demo will be launching shortly too. ;)

It's a fun little game. I only got really stuck once, because I didn't realize an object existed, but other than that, it was just the right level of challenge.

Wonderful game. Funny story, great looking and challenging enough to be engaging.  And good voiceacting, too. One of my favorites of the jam so far!

This is a fun play on Jekyll/Hyde. Sweet visuals & VO. I don't think the pies are for me though... #noCannibalism
