Sequel Studios was created as a way to make a sequel to every single jam game previously worked on by SystemLogoff. It's a fantastically over the top use of the theme was really fun, and the quick experience never overstayed its welcome.
+ Cute Plot
+ Really enjoyable art style
+ Went overboard on theme
+ Minigames unfailable
+ Plot to Gameplay ratio little too far into plot
+ Not as engaging as I'd have liked
As usual SystemLogoff's game had a fantastic, bright, cartoony aesthetic. It's always fun and playful. It was fun seeing homages to a lot of games I'd played in the past. The structure is Wario Ware with Plot, and does a pretty good job marrying the two concepts together. I would say the plot half of the game works well overall, the voice acting was pretty good, although the levels weren't quite where they needed to be for everything to be heard well. The biggest issues with the project were that the minigames had no fail state. I see this as trying to be reflective of the unflappability of the main character and her inability to be frustrated, but in a way it made things feel inconsequential. Once you know the trick you can just spam interactions and win any minigame nearly instantly. Having some kind of failure state, even if it still ticked you over to the next minigame with a goofy joke would have gone a long way.
I'd consider polishing up some of the minigames, and adding that additional fail event if possible. The length is perfect though for the experience. It doesn't really have replayability, but I don't think that was a goal of the project. It stands up well as its own thing, and accomplishes most of what it appeared to strive for. All in a all a very cute and clever addition to a very interesting body of work.
A sequel to the award winning best of theme game Pzzl. Use your mouse to play this interactive fiction game, with a warioware twist.
Describe how your game adheres to the theme
This game is technically a sequel to 4 of my previous games:
PZZL - Direct Sequel
Video Games for Knuckleheads - Stars Grandpa and Grandson
sHexEx - Brewing Beauty in this game is related to this game's lore.
Y2KThulhu - Sequel to the theme of fighting elder gods with belief.
The warioware twist games are all (copyright friendly) sequels to games, or the worst parts of games.
The games theme is also directly retells PZZL's theme, but from the other side.
