Save Summer

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

The drone of cicadas, the tickle of sweat. The streets shimmering in the oppressive heat. These eternal signs of summer call all the kids of Gladden to the community pool, to pack themselves into its chlorinated waters. Since time immemorial, the pool has been the escape from summer heat and summer boredom.

Until this year.

The Swiftwater Sports Complex popped up across the street. It’s a fancy private health club owned by some rich entrepreneur from out of state. It boasts an olympic-length lap pool, a diving tank, and, worst of all, a water slide.

Most folks in Gladden can’t afford a membership to Swiftwater but the mayor seems to have lost faith in his aging municipal facility. Swiftwater made an offer on your community pool’s lot. They want to turn it into a parking lot. The papers will be signed tomorrow and the pool will close for good.

Your boss, Mrs. C.J. Peffercorn, has been a fixture at the pool since you were in swim diapers but, today, she left early. She’s ready to throw in the towel.

But you’re not ready to quit. You’re a lifeguard and this is your pool!

Maybe you can host an event and rally the people of Gladden. Maybe you can dig up some dirt on Swiftwater and change the mayor’s mind. Maybe you can do something and save the pool!

Save Summer was created for Indie Game Reading Club's "On Ramp Jam", a game jam for games that teach new players what an RPG is in 30 minutes or less.

This game features super simple mechanics and a straightforward built-in scenario that takes inspiration from Empire Records.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
