Super cool concept! Very atmospheric too!

Such a unique game! Seems the character reacts on background music, not just my voice, but the mechanic was pretty creative.

I' ve tried to play the game but when I pressed play the screen went black for a lot of time. Then I restarted it and now the game automaticaly closes in two seconds. I tried many times but I can't play it. I would like have played because of the voice control but it seems imposible for me. Sorry mate.

Developer

sorry to hear that !  dont' worry, at leats you tried to play it, thanks for that!

I love the mysterious atmosphere and music!

The game working with voice control is the most unique thing I've seen in this jam, well done!

I hope you play & rate our game as well! :)

Developer

thanks for the feedback! i rated your game, i really liked it, the controls are awesome and to spend carefully your ammo is a fun challenge !

Submitted(+1)

Really interesting game! Impressive that the voice controls work as well as they do. Great work! Keep it up! 

Developer(+1)

lol i'm impressed too, i used headphones to test the audio input...i love space shooters!!!

(+1)

I was very hard to play with voice controls and i would lkike to it have optional controls for keyboard, for noobs like me:D . Still original and i like your idea with game.

Developer(+1)

yeah i don't have a mic so i had to use headphones to make the game, as i say on another reply, i'm surprised that people have been able to play it....i didn't put keyboard controls because that would be against the purpose of the game, i don't know how to say it, basically it would ruin the experience because it was "designed" (i put it like that because it's more a prototype than a game ) to be played with your voice, you wouldn't have the same kind of "satisfaction" when moving the sphere if you used the keyboard , i aimed at a more kind of organic experience, if that makes sense lol...

Hey, sadly i cant run .rar files, it would have been better if there was a zip file as my computer can run that by unzipping it! But i cant do the same with rar files!Sorry! But hey if you upload a zip version in  the future(or if you create a secret link for me to try it during the jam time), do let me know, I shall do try it!

Developer

here is a zip version (i uploaded to my mediafire account) https://www.mediafire.com/file/u7vhek4e37p9fg2/BTP_GameJam_Hope_GameFolder.zip/f...

Sadly, I cannot play downloadable games. Still left you a 5 out of 5 rating to help you :)

Developer(+1)

ok, thank you!!! i wanted to do a webGL build , but for some weird reason my pc crashes and shuts down every time i try to make  a webGL build, even with an empty new project

Submitted

It's ok don't worry ;D

This one was the most original i have ever seen in a game jame congrats :D My only complaint is the character feels too light also maybe add an option to calibrate our mic to our preferences so it doesnt go up for every small voice :d

Other than that i had fun playing it and maybe spent 10 minutes trying to get the last key :D but it was fun great work :D

Developer

wow, thank, that means a lot to me!!! 

it was very hard to setup the microphone input, i have no mic, so i used a headphone to make the game, the captured values were very low, so i had to raise them to test/make the game , i really didn't think in a setting like that ahaha something like mouse sensitivity lol, thanks for the idea!!! i will implement that when  when i redo the game in a proper way (with levels, history and all that stuff, this was more a prototype than anything else) 

Submitted(+1)

Sound effects and art makes this game really eerie in a good way. I feel the movement is a bit floaty though but maybe it's just my mic. I hope the player character is easier to see though, right now I think there are a bit too much particle effects.

Developer

the mic input its a bit clunky...the player IS a particle effect lol, actually a sphere with a particle effect and a light, but i disabled the sphere mesh so only the smoke and the light reamained, thanks for the feedback!

Submitted(+1)

Dude, this is a really original concept, but the game is really hard, maybe cause the level is proc-gen, my lungs hurt, i only got one key. Still a good job.

Developer(+1)

thanks for playing it!  ahahah sorry for your lungs, i felt the same when testing the game over and over lol.

yeah, i only had time to make the game, i didn't balance it , at least i made the checks to avoid objects spawning inside others lol.

My girlfriend looked at me as if I was crazy and then literally burst into laughter

Developer

haha did  you tell her that you weren't summoning anything right?? ,  I'm glad to bring smiles and laughter with my games,  thanks for playing it!!!

Submitted(+1)

Well, That was something completely different from anything that I have played till now. Thanks for such an experience. My parents came running to see why I started chanting in the middle of the night. :D

I would really appreciate it if you could play and rate my game as well. Thanks!

Developer(+1)

ahaha, what did they tell you??  I should have written a warning or something , thanks for the feedback i always like to think of the games that i make as experiences , you can read books, you can watch movies, but with games is all about interaction.

Submitted(+1)

I like the concept! the control was really fun. it is a really new experience!

Developer

thanks for the feedback! i wanted to make people use their voice, i felt that it  was a more involved experience than just using the standard controls.

Submitted(+1)

good job! I ended up just blowing into my mic because I moved faster than going oooooooo, glad I played your game though. Was it possible to collect 3 keys? I got 1 key and then I kept going up and no more map existed

Developer

ahaha  yes i know about that , also making a more high pitch would make you go faster... it is possible (its the objective of the game after all lol ), you have to go around the tower using the platforms ,  you hop into one, and then wait a little, you will be moving around the tower , and then you have to go up and down if needed searching for the keys, i didn't explain that in the tutorial , sorry

Submitted(+1)

Oh, I played it, very liked the sound. But it's hard for me to control :(

Developer

sorry about that, have in mind that i don't have a microphone, i had to test the voice input with a headphone connected to the microphone port of the pc lol , and in doing so the range that i used to capture the audio , and the variables that made around those values had a chance to not be so optimal...im surprised that people could actually play it!  thanks for the feedback!

Submitted(+1)

I just told the blue ball about how my day was, and before I knew it I had completed the game! It's super cool, honestly loved it

Developer

thanks for the feedback! glad that you enjoyed it!

Submitted(+1)

Very cool concept :) I kinda felt like a mongolian throat singer while making the sound xD I think my neighbors hate me now ;p

Developer

ahahaha that was somewhat the idea

Submitted(+1)

Ah the days of "blow into your controller" are still here, how comforting ;)

Developer

i played your game man, really cool, i always payed for more power
