Judge feedback

Judge feedback is anonymous and shown in a random order.

  • It's a very interesting premise for a game. The awkwardness of the interface like not being able to select the music score unless you click right in the corner, or having to pixel hunt for an invisible pin, or an invisible shoe brought it down quite a bit.
  • There seemed to be a few visual bugs in the entry (pin and foot in the office?) which meant we were blindly clicking to interact with items, this was frustrating and could have led to us quitting the game early. Graphically we liked the style, and while the character sprites had a nostalgia value, it would have been good to see some original artwork for the characters. There was no audio and nothing much in the way of a puzzle, but it was a cool story to tell, unfortunately the execution was a little wild and it was hard to follow.

This is not a hat.

I am not sure if there is a bug with this but after two pins I cannot seem to progress.  I can listen to traffic and that is all

Listen for the pin on the floor to the character's left (below the first two, with respect to the screen).

I might have to enlarge the zone so it's less of a pixel hunt.
