Nice game, a bit abstract for my preferenceπŸ˜…, but overall a good game.

Developer

Thanks! And yeah I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea! Thanks for playing! :D

That was some great art. And you added narration to a game jam game. That was just great. I loved the setting and how you handled the theme. The music felt a bit ominous but it was still great. The animations were also good. I liked this game a lot. Your use of 2D lighting was on point. Thanks for this game!

Please consider playing and rating my game as well. I would really appreciate it!

Developer

Wow thank you so much for the kind words I really appreciate it! I tried to make the audio, art and effects stand out as I knew the idea was lacking! Thanks again.

I will for sure! :D

Great entry! The art style and the narration were the best parts of the game for me. I also like that some of the villagers had different requirements to earning their happiness. I think the music could use some improvement though, it sounds more creepy that joyful to me so it doesn't fit the vibe of the game much. What I'd do for the music is make three different music tracks and change them depending on your progress, with the last track being in a major key. Great job overall!

Developer

Thanks so much for the kind words! And you (and as others have said) are so right about the music! My plan was to do something like that, so have 3 tracks that get more upbeat and happier! But I've never really made music before so I just went for a simple melody and then ran out of time!

Thanks so much for the kind words!

Pretty cool game that fits the theme well. I had fun gathering items and making the Villies happy. The sound effects were pretty neat too! Awesome devlog as well!

Thanks so much for the kind words! I am glad you enjoyed it! And Thanks for watching the devlog!

good game.i like the art and the sfx and music.but you need to polish the controlls.but its a good game

Developer

I'm glad you like the art and sfx/music! That's what my main priority was, but yeah it definitely needed more polish! Thanks for playing! :D

I really like the art and music of this game. It could do with a little polish, but it's pretty good!

Developer

Thanks! I prioritised the art and music as I knew my gameplay wasn't fantastic! Definitely needs more polish, thanks for playing! :D

Submitted(+1)

I really like the music and the rhyme intro! Quite an interesting idea with the hide n seek. Sometimes a lesser scope and more work on polish would be better I guess, but overall an interesting experience :)

Developer

Thanks very much for the kind words! You're the first person to mention the rhymes! Yeah I definitely overscoped with it, but I am so glad you enjoyed! :D

Awesome games, Always keen to play a retelling of "A Christmas Carol"

Developer

Thank you so much! I'm glad it was somewhat close to the novel!

Pretty fun and wholesome game! I really like the intro cinematic. The music is a bit on the tense and creepy side which was a bit unnerving. I was expecting this to turn into a horror game at any moment. Great work! Keep it up!  

Developer(+1)

Thank you! That means a lot! And yeah I heard from a lot of people they expect the music to do that πŸ˜… Thanks again!

The game story is cool and it fits the theme. UI could have been a bit more stylized and I realised too late that there were hints in the upper corner. All in all, It was fun little adventure! 

Developer(+1)

Thank you! (I'm glad it fits I didn't know if it was going to in the end πŸ˜…)

Yeah I wish I had more time to stylise the UI. And same for the hints but they were a late addition! Thank you so much!

I loved that! Super wholesome and I made the whole village happy :D Love that it became brighter as you made everyone happier! The sound effects and intro cutscene was awesome. Just took me a bit to figure out the controls but then it was easy peasy! Great work! 

Developer

Thank you so much! :D I really appreciate the kind words, and I'm glad you found it wholesome as that was the aim! - Thanks again :DD

This was really fun! Very nicely done :)

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

Nice little game. I made everyone happy :) I didn't get the (!) thing, I gave it and then it took me to a black screen then put me back in the level? I liked the snow flake effect that was great. Also great job on the music, I like how it sped up as you made more people happy. 

Developer

Thanks! I'm glad you did! Oh you get a message in the top right telling you to go find them as it's hide and seek! (Black for closing your eyes!)


I'm glad you like the effects and music! I tried quite hard to make them interesting!

Super cool, didn't expect this to have a little cutscene but damn you really worked hard on making this one as good as possible in the short amount of time! 

Developer(+1)

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the cutscene, I realised gameplay wise it wasn't fantastic so I'd make the rest of it as good as I could!

A nice twist, looking at the theme as a theme for the game, instead of a mechanic

Developer

That's exactly what I did! (Hopefully that's allowed πŸ˜…)

If I could rate I would give it a 4/5.
1+ because It's super cute~
