Wow, I really like the vibe of this one!

Love the minimalistic approach to the gameplay as well as the art
Each effect is spot on and the gameplay is smooth
The audio is great and contributes a lot to the game atmosphere

The concept of increased heartbeat when getting closer to the goal is well executed

The combination of the audio, gameplay and art gave me a nice warm feeling while playing

Played until the end and had a lot of fun, great job! :)

Great job. Made it all the way through. This is a very zen game. The visuals and sound fx were really good. The open room levels were kind of a bear to get through, but I loved it overall.

I love the soundtrack. I like the graphics and animations a lot, especially how the heartbeat works with you getting closer to your loved one. Awesome game!

Developer

Thank you! I am really happy that you liked the heartbeat mechanic :) My friend, who made the soundtrack, will be very happy to read that!

Awesome game, mate. I remember when you were struggling with the hearbeat sound in the Discord server. Turned out to be a very atmospheric and lovely game. Awesome stuff!

First after playing your game, your game reminds me of HTML & JavaScript Canvas game when i was on graduated. And I saw your made with Unity. I said that so cool. I don't know is that post-processing made the effects or other techs. Graphics is nice but the audio is the best parts of art. You game offers one clean style to user. I thinks your game have potential to make one mini mobile game. Very good

I loved this very much! Short and sweet, but could definitely be longer. 

Developer

Thanks for playing it on stream :) I will try to make a longer story... Maybe a real game instead of a gamejam entry :)

Dig it! Nice work!

Thanks :)

Very cool game. Great graphics and audio.

Besides what others wrote, I feel like you overdid post processing (specifically, noise).

Check out my game (3D-horror) as well: https://nns2009.itch.io/love-full-house

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Few people told me also that I should have reduced a bit the post processing hehe. I may try later to do that and see if it looks better :) I checked your game even if I am not a big fan of horror games/movies :p

Nice game! Liked the heartbeat effects..cool. At first the graphics seem simple, but they really add to the game ambiance. Nice! Music nice vibe also. And the most important part..I had fun playing and was able to clear a good number of levels :) 

Developer

Happy to hear that you liked the atmosphere / emotions by playing my game! "A good number of levels", does it mean you didn't finish it? Just joking ;) Thanks for the comment!

Submitted

Really great game! I enjoyed playing until the last level :D

Very nice atmospheric game. The particles look so cool and the heartbeat sound is very satisfying. The red lights where a bit annoying because they only appeared once the heart was very close which lead to a lot of deaths out of now where.

Submitted(+1)

I love the music and the art put into this. It's satisfying at the end of each level to see the particles go everywhere revealing the level around you. The only question I have is: Why is there an eye to the right of the end screen? Again, cool game.

Developer (1 edit)

Thanks for the feedback. I will be honest, I forgot to remove it when I was doing the level design of the end screen haha. When I tested it, I didn't go too far so I didn't see it, I never thought that someone would go far off the screen. Let's say it is kind of a hidden easter egg hehe :)

Very nice artistic style and great Soundtrack. Very similar to Thomas was Alone soundtrack, which I enjoyed a lot.

Developer

As you mentioned, the soundtrack was inspired by Thomas was alone :) Thanks for playing my game and leaving a feedback!

Amazing game! I think that the difficulty was a bit too low as i completed all the levels within 5 minutes but other than that great job!

Developer

Thanks for playing my game! I am aware, unfortunately, that my game is bit too easy but at least most of people can finish it hehe. I will try to add more levels with more difficulty later ;)

The work on the particles is insane ! Very very well done !

Developer

Thanks! You should also add some particles in your character editor ;)

All 5/5 from me, best game i've played here so far!

Developer

Wow! I feel so happy to read that! Thanks!

This is definitely something new, a great concept with fitting audio and graphics. You kept very true to the Theme Love is Blind and I really like the puzzle theme it has.

This is some good work you've done! :)

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! It took me some time to brainstorm and find something that fits the theme. I think I took it very literally compared to others (I don't have enough imagination to think about Superman and Blinded mole ;))

Really loved it .. It was fun , great implementation, never felt bored to completely check out whole ..

Developer

Thanks for playing it (even you didn't participate to the gamejam)! I think I made the game not too long and not too difficult so a lot of people finished my game before they get frustrated or bored hehe.

Really lovely game. Really satisfying looking at the  colors filling the darkness, not to mention it was also really cleverly used.  :) 

Developer

Thanks for playing my game and leaving a kind feedback :)
