Railroad Tracks

Devoid of all memory, a small pierrot awakens early one Oktober morning, down by an abandoned railway line. Help him navigate his mysterious world, but beware, for the further he wanders from the rigid safety of the railroad, the more unsettling his surroundings become. . .

The game looks so interesting, and I wish I could play, but my computer refuses to run it.... Maybe another time when I figure out how to fix it!

Sad to hear it didn't run, and thanks for trying. If you think the issues are not being caused at your end you could give me some info on your system (like what operating system, 32 or 64 bit, any other peculiarities), and I will see if I can reproduce the error.

For what I have seen until now the game runs stable on all versions of Windows from XP onward, but I am keen on patching any issues you may have.

Turns out it was a problem with my Windows Defense System, but I managed to get it sorted out and I love it! The graphics are nice and simple but also very pretty at the same time, which gives it a really cool feel. It feels so eerie when I'm playing it, though it is slightly confusing at first although I'm sure that was your intention. Overall I look forward to continuing this game in my spare time! I've only found one memory so far, but I'm sure I'll find more eventually. Great game!

alright i picked this up and put this down in july but i'm just getting into it again.
i have NO idea what's going on. i'm going to chronicle all the different universes i've found
  • starting world
  • underground memory gets-really-bright-tunnel
  • the land of the-insides-of-towers and stairs that links together all worlds
  • tower void. you will get super lost. walk between the black squares on bridges made of more black.
  • grass world (sad music with graves)
  • grass world (happy music with graves)
  • flamingo lands??
  • bridge i haven't explored yet
i might have forgotten a few. once again, july.
edit 1:
  • black & white world i haven't actually explored yet but the game really wants me to
  • land that looks sort of like an enormous office space. the walls are tall glass panes?
    EDIT 2: it just morphed into the same thing but i'm high above a city??
    EDIT 3: i just walked a huge distance for a dead end :(
    EDIT 5: office land is really big. i've spent more time in it than tower void and grass world (sad music). also it just morphed again but now the background is all black EDIT 6: previously marked edit 5 as another edit 4
edit 4: there are SO MANY ways to escape this map

edit 7:
  • college campus rain void, also i'm wondering if these were supposed to be found in order bc i found memory 8 almost by accident randomly as the second memory i ever found and memory 5 took diligent work and hours of exploration
edit 8:
  • earlier i found a castle world and it had a big door at the center of one of the rooms and i didn't go into it but i went through to the other side, and there was nothing, and i tried to go back but it sent me into a different room
edit 9:
  • dirt world
  • cornstalk mountains
  • Cave (i found Cave before but forgot to mention it)
  • fence-grass-grain silo world
i have also become aware that dirt world and cornstalk mountains are actually just mountains, but dirt world was just on top of a very large flat part of the mountains. for the first time, a flamingo land has actually led me to a new world, this world being fggs world.

edit 10:
  • Town Land (got to it from fggs world, never really explored fggs world much)
  • the land of diamonds, which netted me another memory. about an exotic dancer?
edit 11: i know not whether to classify town land and the land of diamonds as one and the same or to classify the bridge inside-house world in between them as its own, but something must be changed
  • (SP/F)ACE HIGHWAY, where i have been lost for half an hour. there better be a dang memory in this place. why are there a bunch of eyes everywhere? are they eyes? they look like eyes from the occasional face intersections i see.
edit 12:
  • green town, ft. Freaky Art Museum
  • M O D E R N A R T, which netted me mem4

yo there are SO MANY ways to escape this map. i'm not even looking for them, i just keep accidentally leaving. sometimes it leads to an actual new place so I don't know if it's supposed to work like that or not?

update: weird officeland found me a new memory. apparently my mom is that woman i found in the tall tower in the grass world (sad music)? tall white tower surrounded by grass and woods. also you should add the ability for us to re-view old memories, since i already got memories 1 and 8 and remember them not at all.

edit: nvm you totally can thanks

this game is like incomprehensibly tedious. that's my #1 complaint. it's fun and all but there's no way most players would stay as long as i have. 90% of the playtime is just constantly wandering at a snail's pace inside these enormous maps, usually with little to no way to have any clue where you're going. i'm in (sp/f)ace highway, as i have been, and i've resorted to drawing a physical map of the place. most players would have abandoned this by now.

edit: map finished. dirty move making it an incredibly long dead end, but at least i got a memory out of it. there's a bug with the way into (sp/f)ace highway. once you enter the building, the door back out doesn't work. i can warp out, but if by some coincidence a player gets memory 10 first, they're softlocked.

also, this door (far right, same level as the house/post office) doesn't work. you can't go into it, it doesn't do anything.
