Judge feedback

Judge feedback is anonymous.

  • Appreciate that the engine is written from scratch, but there's not much of a game here. -- it's more of a proof of concept. (The title of the game window is "Hello World".) You wander through a 3D-ish, first-person perspective maze , shooting zombies, that drop like flat cut-outs at an old-fashioned shooting gallery. It's kind of fun to rely on your mental map of the space to navigate it, but there is ultimately no purpose or challenge. Eventually you die, and move on.

Cool! I like that you can shoot diagonally if you time it right. Would be cool to see this scaled up with more textures and stuff into a full game, seems like it would be fun.

That's what you call emergent gameplay!

I liked the calm mood of the game. However, I got lost quickly. The game could use variations in the scenery or a minimap to prevent this.

Cheers!
