I like the visual style... But that's all that game has. At first, I thought there was some kind of fair solution that I have to figure out... Nope, I just needed to guess the order to press 3 buttons. Sorry, that's not a gameplay. Next time try to spend more time on idea and game prototyping, you may come up with something cooler.

Also be sure to rate my game too https://itch.io/jam/blackthornprod-game-jam-1/rate/319192

Thx for the feedback, indeed its not that kinda gameplay i had in mind, but 2 hours before the deadline i decided too keep it in the state i know have. I statrted programming ~ 1 month ago, and the fact that i was busy in that week and only had 48 hours broke my final project apart. Anyway's you are right, next time i have to spend more time in the project ;)

The Ideas and visuals are cool but the game is a little slow in my opinion.

Developer(+1)

Thx, the game wasn't intended to be fast ;)  ("Coding takes time")

Cool game, a little bit boring on the the trail and error, but the visuals are nice!

Developer

Thx, as always: the try and error thing will be improved in the future ;)

Submitted

Great ide with making settings as part of game :) Although I'm not sure if sound bool worked properly :) The game could be less  random. You could for example draw actual connections between inputs and outputs and maybe implement logic gates. Overall, very good job, keep up the good work :)

Developer

Thx for the feedback! What problem was with the soudn bool? I already have connections from the set bools to the  cons ( in order) i wonder what you mean exactly. Yeah the logic thing im planning right now, but to be fair all the improvments coming after the rating as an update. ;)

Submitted

When sound toggle is off, music toggle still have sounds :) I mean that the paths could be visible (now they are only visible when you toggle them). Of course that would require to complicate things a bit with logic gates, so the game would not become to easy :)

Developer

Oh, you're right, that was my intention to better give feedbakc at the toggles.. but yes maybe its a bit disturbing. At first i had all the path visible, only getting higlighted when set, but it looked very ugly in my eyes so i canceled that. Yep the logic thing is very hard, cause it should make the game less try and error but not make it to easy.. so it must be well planned.

The puzzle kind is great and it really fits the theme of the jam simple but logic :)

Developer

Thx

Submitted

Fits the theme for sure, as mentioned the only thing is, that it seems to be more of a trial and error sort of game. Please check out my game! https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fitch.io%2Fjam%2Fblackthornprod-game...

Developer

Thx! For sure, I try it in the next days ;)

Sound effect and music is harmonious with whats going on on the screen. The puzzle depends on trial, and error (I think) which isn't necessarily bad, but it kind of slows down the completion speed of puzzles in further levels. (the amount of trials needed I feel like, increases exponentially)

Developer

Thx, i agree with the only trial and error "failure", but i had no good idea to give hints, maybe a future addon.

Cool Game but the ui and bool control is hard to use. Please try my game if  you can : https://doominator22.itch.io/48-hours

Developer

Thx, what exactly do you mean with hard to use? ( learning form mistakes ;) ) 

Submitted

I took a few minutes trying to figure out how to push the buttons. I think it might have been the computer. I had to click. Then hold click and move. Then click again to switch.

Developer

erhm, okay that sounds weird... normally you can only push the set bool buttons (the i higlighted with mouse over)

if you clicked the button the button. all the buttons get inactive (red), the game checks the conditions and then sets the buttons back to active. What system are you on?

Submitted

It was mac and safari. It was definitely the computer.

Developer

It seems so, i can't test on mac on this side ;)

Submitted

Good music and sounds. It would be nice to have more visuals that show why the bools are true or false instead of having to guess randomly.

Developer

thx, yep that is true and when a idea comes to my mind it will probably added in the future
