Jam Judge

Hi, just wanted to share the notes I took while I was playing the game for judging with you!

Had trouble at the β€œpress space” screen. Dialogue is full of Engrish - makes it hard to understand, but in a way it also helps with the ominous and unsettling feel of it. Mostly a problem when it comes to the directions and such. Dialogue goes all the way out - no matter how far away you get the speech keeps happening. (Minor issue) Very short - which is fine. Dark parts remind me of Silent Hill or some other horror game - very nice vaguely ominous feeling.

Overall game would be much better if English was improved. It’s very hard to tell what the people are saying, figured out what I was supposed to do just by luck.

Thanks a lot for your answer, I know for the "press space" problem :),s o sorry for the english ( English is not my first language, I speak everyday french, so I will do better for the next jam, so thanks for playing my game :).

Oh, I know! ESL is hard! I don't want to sound discouraging. It just made things challenging when the dialog was supposed to help the player figure out what to do.

Honestly I think the weird not-quite-right sentences added to the overall atmosphere, since the whole world was clearly not-quite-right to begin with. So there's an argument to be made that it's better this way too.

Interesting story. I included it in my compilation video of all of the games in this jam, if you’d like to take a look. :)
