  • ClueRL is definitely hard to judge. It's an interesting take on classic "Clue" game, yet it's unpolished. Looks like the game started with much bigger scope in mind and the dev didn't have enough time to really finish the game. The models are puppets, transition between tiles may cause headache, map is way to big in comparison of interactive elements... That's probably just the skeleton, foundation for real game. I definitely had some fun with that entry, but I think it would work much better with simpler yet cleaner graphics and more tight maps.
  • Thanks for making an entry! I did like and appreciate the interesting idea of a ClueRL. Who didn't love playing Clue as a kid? I think I could see where you're trying to go with this, and I encourage you to update it. I definitely appreciated your recommendation to download the windows version. I could see how it might be quite slow in a browser. Given the size of the map, I'd maybe suggest trying out the portals that existed in the Clue game in the corners of the board. Maybe make the map slightly smaller as well...it did take a while to trek around. While I appreciated the notes interface, I'd suggest cutting it from the game. It's just as easy to use a nearby piece of paper (just my humble opinion). Thanks again for participating!

Has a ton of potential - if this had more time I think it could be really compelling.
