There was no explanation for the story or characters involved. i'm down for the whole lost memory thing, but there was no payoff. There wasn't any design to comment on as the only interaction came in text form. The blocky 3D art is alright, especially if given the chance to detail it more. There was some ambiance for game audio, but not much else.

Best of luck.

Short but interesting game! I included it in my $101 Adventure Challenge compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Developer

Thanks everyone for the feedback so far. I've updated the page to show 'Unfinished'. Unfortunately I ran out of time to properly flesh out the plot and gameplay interactions. Instead, this is an intro and a hasty ending with a temporary middle sequence to link them.

Host

This game is kind of confusing without much to do. The protagonist is apparently famous, but it doesn't make it clear why. Also why did they knock him out and take him out onto a boat just to try to kill him? The story didn't make much sense. It wasn't until the second time playing that I even realized how he got on the boat. At first I thought it was a dream he was waking up from and he was on the boat all along.

Very short, and not really much choice given? (I didn't try not pushing the guy though)

This could be a cool game, but it would need a bit more content and interaction. :)

Please, lock the mouse cursor inside of the window, it drives me nuts.

A nice, short experience.

A sound effect for clicking prompts and maybe some music would be nice

Nice. I got both endings. The shift to the boat is really jarring.
