It's good, I just wish there was more. I like the voice acting, and the environment is very nice (I spent a while wandering around). I'm glad to hear you'll keep working on it, I'd like to see where it goes :)

Thank you for checking it out. We’re just waiting for the rating to finish and then we’ll share a ‘slightly more fun’ version lol

Rated - A really cool and unique prototype!  Great job.  The 3d modelling is done really well too, the  buttons/sliders, environment, and lighting look great.  Definitely a neat idea.   Work on it some more after the jam.  Please check out my game when you have time~ good day!

Developer

Thank you!  Our team is grateful.  We'll share a more complete version after the rating period is over.

The idea was okay, and the voice acting was great.  Hope to see the complete version latter. Overall an okay jam game.

Very nice graphics!! I liked the game.

Thank you!  Sorry it was over so quickly.  We'll be sharing a more complete version after the two week rating period.

Is the slider part where the game is supposed to end? If yes, then ok, I guess. I explored the world outside the room, and a nice world you got there!

Hey, thanks for playing and reviewing - means a lot to us. I accidentally broke our game right before submission and couldn’t fix it in time. Sorry it ended so abruptly. After the rating period we’ll share a more complete version.

So the slider thing is the end?

Developer (3 edits)

Well, no.  The story goes on quite a bit and you meet another character along way, break out, and experience an ending that nods to the theme and ties it all together.  I stayed up trying to finish all Thursday night and all Friday night (didn't actually sleep for 3 days - didn't know that was possible btw).  In my delirium Saturday morning I broke the logic we had going in our game and I couldn't get it working again so we just had to cut it short at the interactive testing table part.  I went ahead and opened the room door in this version so people could check out the larger room.  When rating ends, we'll share what we intended to share.  Stay tuned!

No, I meant the end of the current Jam game.

Anyway, you guys can make a separate upload, right? For the new game?

Developer

Ah, gotcha.  Yes!  It's over pretty quick in this version.  I'm not sure if we can override this current upload after the rating ends.  If not, we'll just have a link on the game page.

Hey I loved the art style. Using the buttons felt really good and smooth. Great job, looking forward to more!

Developer

Big thanks from the team!  More to come after the two week rating period has ended.

Submitted(+1)

Rated. Hope you find the time to further develop your project.

Developer

Thank you for playing and rating - means the world to us!  Sorry for the briefness I accidentally broke our game right before submission.  We're working on it now and will share a much more developed version after the rating period.

Submitted(+1)

I risked breaking my own game during the last two days, I can understand. :)

Submitted(+1)

Looks like a great start to the game. The graphics were well done. Movements as well.

Developer

Thank you for playing and reviewing - really appreciate the time.  We'll be sharing a more complete version after the two week rating period has ended.  Stay tuned!

Submitted(+1)

I would be very interested to see where the game is headed if you continue making it! I was also very interested in your making of page. 

A lot of potential!

Developer

Thanks for checking it out - means the world to us.  I stayed up two nights in a row, went zombie mode, broke a bunch of the game, and couldn't fix it in time lol.  But yes, we're working on it now and we will share a more complete version after the two week rating period.

Good job! liked the audio!

Developer

Thank you for playing and reviewing!

The game is short but it has potential. For some reason it reminds me of the Stanley parable, now it has some problems, the game completely bugs up if you press the buttons before the guy finishes speaking and for some reason the text can just bug up and overlap for some reason. Anyways it's good but not great, but it has great potential.

Developer(+1)

Thank you for playing and reviewing!  Yes, we apologize for the quickest ending ever lol.  We'll be posting a more complete version (our intended version) after the two week rating period.  Stay tuned!

Submitted(+1)

I sure will!

In the game I got to pushing the slider on the far right, but then the game stopped giving commands. Also, sometimes the computer is giving multiple commands at the same time (with multiple audio tracks talking over eachother). After trying again, I noticed that you can move away from the computer. Holy shit, I'm in a massive building. Are you guys going to keep working on the game? I also see that you've made a bunch of paperwork. $1 mln is perhaps a bit of a low target for a game like this. Were you inspired by the Stanley Parable?

Developer

Thank you - means a lot to us!  Yes, apologies for the abrupt ending.  We aimed a bit too high for a couple days of jam.  We'll post a more complete version after the two week rating period.  We definitely were inspired by the Stanley Parable!  This is my little brother's first game jam so I figured we'd just give away whatever we were able to make.  If we polish it shiny enough I may consider opening it to donations.  Thanks!!

Nice concept and I'll be waitng for updates if you planning to do it.

Developer(+1)

Thank you for playing and reviewing - means the world to us!  Sorry the functionality of it ended so quickly we just got smashed on time.  We're working on it right now and plan to share a more complete version after the two week rating period that is closer to what we intended :)

Submitted(+1)

Nice demo! The concept looks really interesting and the music sounded great.

Developer

Thank you, means a lot to us.  Sorry it was over so quick!  We're finishing up and will post what we had intended to post after the rating period has ended.

Submitted(+1)

Twas interesting my computers runs like a potato when playing 3D games otherwise its a good experience! I really like the detailed 3D models buttons and all its really nice, the music was also nice

Developer(+1)

Thanks for checking it out!  We're fleshing it out and will be submitting our intended game (a more complete version) after the two week rating period is over.  Appreciate the review.  Means a lot to us.

Submitted(+1)

Will Definitely check it out once its out (>-<)

Submitted(+1)

I like the idea and can't wait for the full game. :)

Developer

Thank you for checking it out and reviewing.  Means a lot to us!  We're working on what we couldn't finish in time right now.  

Submitted(+1)

It is so sad that the game is so short. I see you guys have put a lot effort on the scene design. It's great!


If you guys have time, take a look to my game. It'll be fun!

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Thanks for playing our game and reviewing!  Sorry this version ends so abruptly.  We ran into difficulty along the way and just couldn't fit everything in.  And yes, partly it's because I spent too long on the making the level :P  We'll be adding a complete version after the two week rating period is over.  Our story and game make so much more sense later on.

Submitted(+1)

It'll be good to see the new version.
