I really like this!! I was gladly suprised that there was actually a game to be played, not just some text saying THE GAME IS NOT REAL (I've seen that too many times)

And I really liked the clever jokes and puzzle solutions. Very enjoyable.

Great job!



Also, if you have time, could you check out my game as well? Thanks!

Developer

That's very nice to hear! Thank you for playing my game, it means a lot!

I'm planning on making more games, even a full game from this prototype. If that sounds interesting to you here's a link to my YouTube channel where I post devlogs. I also have a devlog on how I made this game and a new video will come tomorrow! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTGDJAPLZoPjzZYaxXPfwJw

It would be really awesome to have you there!

Sure, I would love to play your game ^_^

Really fun game! the concept really reminded me of "There Is No Game" but you did take it to different genre, with different concepts

I liked how the "It is not real" was a part of the story, everything was not real and the cool unintended bugs added a lot aswell

During the playthrough I was really hoping for a cool twist, for example: what if you had the power to crash some parts of the room by doing things that you shouldn't, to then reveal secrets

Also, I think that more levels where the solution is not the obvious solution would really add a lot to your game, just like how you did with the key puzzle.

You could've gone a step further and used the pause menu to stop the settings button from running away so it'll be easier for you to catch it.

Anyways, great entry, has a lot of potential!

Hey!

Thank you for playing it, it's great to hear that you enjoyed it, it means a lot!

I agree with your feedback and thanks for the ideas! It would have been great to make the game longer by adding some more content and I have a lot of cool ideas in mind. But I had to scope down the game, otherwise I wouldn't have finished it in one week. But I'm going to develop this prototype into a full game because a lot of people want that! If that sounds interesting to you here's a link to my YouTube channel where I post devlogs. I also have a devlog on how I made this game and tomorrow a new video will be posted! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTGDJAPLZoPjzZYaxXPfwJw

Really cool game! The pixel art looks pretty good and the voice acting and music are great.

I liked the idea of not having a cursor and discovering how everything is not real (really fits the theme). You could really build on this idea to make a larger scale game out of this. There could be some other things which you can do other than walking as it becomes a bit repetitive towards the end but I can understand that 1 week is a really short time for making a game.

Overall, good job! :D

great take on the prompt! I enjoyed the narrator and the method of story telling for the game. actually got a chuckle out of the menu button walking off. also really like the pixel art and animation, good work all around!

I think it may have had to do with some of my connected peripherals, but whenever I was given control I was constantly walking down. if you plan on going further with this game, I had pedals and a steering wheel hooked up, that might need be ignored from the inputs!

Developer (1 edit)

That's very nice to hear! I'm very happy you liked it!

Thanks for the feedback! Maybe you are right, maybe it is from your peripherals, I've never seen something like that before, while playtesting or while watching others playing the game. However, this game is going to be developed further into a full game and I'm going to take care of every bug so that it doesn't happen again. I'm also planning on making more games.

Great job! So meta. I especially liked how the guy took away the cursor and closed the game himself!

I love this game! Voice acting, Sense of humor, Sound Design and Story. All this things are perfect. I would love to see more of it. I especially like the character of the narrator. I think you have a good chance of winning this Game Jam. 

If you have a minute, please check my game too :)

Hey! Thank you very much for your kind words. It's really awesome to read your comment, really made my day.

It would have been great to make the game longer adding more story, gameplay elements and characters. But I had to scope down the game, otherwise I wouldn't have finished it. But I will develop more games soon and maybe make a whole game from this prototype because a lot of people want that! If that sounds interesting to you here's a link to my YouTube channel where I post devlogs.
