Congrats on the score. Well deserved! 

Developer(+1)

I appreciate that you take the time to come back mate! Thank you so much!

Submitted

It's an odd concept for a jam game but it works only one time whern you have an active community and fresh phrase. The problem is that you run game once, get your word and that's it, the end. There is no other activities and reasons to go back.

Developer

I'm not a big fan of long games, or the idea of replayability but I understand your point. Shortness of the experience as been pointed out, indeed!

Thanks for passing Tricky_Fat_Cat ! :)

Submitted

I don't know if anyone got this word yet:

31- realizes

I found this a very original idea, and atmospheric. I do think it lacks a bit of game play though.

Developer

You're not the first one to think it's way to short (even I thought that when I did a new playthrough).

And no one found "realizes" but you! Thank you for passing by, and thank you for sharing!

Cool concept! Very original!

Word 28: Feels

I uninstalled and then reinstalled your game to see what happened. The same word was there, exactly where I left it. I tried downloading it again and after installing and opening it, I saw it there. I couldn't let the challenge pass, and so I took to the task to figure out how you did it. I thought of how I'd do it, and so checked if you'd thought of it as well. Sure enough, it was there! Lucky me!

Nice job :)

Developer

Hihi, sneaky you! 

I'm glad to know you've spent time trying! Thanks to you, it's been done for something! :)

Thank you so much for passing by!

Developer

Wow, that is beyond orginal! I don't know if this qualifies as a "game", but you got my 5 stars in Orginality and Theme. Well done man :D

Developer

I don't know either if this qualifies for a game, but hey. Felt like doing it anyway!

Thank you so much for passing by!

That was a really wild (but really cool!) concept! I like the interaction with the community! I think everything was found already, but I got this!

Developer

Not everything has been found yet actually!

Thank you so much for playing mate!

Really original. Nice idea to share with other players a same objective ! 

Word 31/45 : "they"

Developer

Everybody gets this "they", hihi! Thank you!

Submitted

Word 33 "are".

Very, very original game. 

Unfortunately, gameplay ends very fast.

Developer(+1)

I can understand that frustration.

Thanks for coming anyway mate! :)

Amazing !!!

I love this concept!

word 28: feels.

SAME.

Man, i really do hope we end up getting all the words!

Also, did you make the hands like in Bernband or was it just a coincidence? In any case, it's a good one, as i find it quite charming, hehe

let's find them all!

Developer (1 edit)

BERNBAND! I used to play Tom's games when he used to post often. Thanks for reminding me!!!

Might definitely be coming from that, I barely remembered hands floating in a FPS and thought it would give a nice "follower of sect" feeling (hands are high, open and towards the sky). Also, I had nothing but my mouse to make graphics so I kept it simple. I guess it came from both stealing inspiration and mouse drawing capacities.

Anyway, thanks for playing mate! :)

Submitted

Super original and cool concept, my only complaint is that it's a little anti-climactic when you play it and end up getting a word that's already been discovered XD

Developer

Yeah, I considered making some kind of online verification to handle this case but... Guess what, I didn't do it! Hihi.

Thank you for playing anyway! Hopefully, if the text gets completed your session will have more of a climax feeling! :)

Submitted

words 16 and 18 are "over"

Developer

Your pseudo has two numbers and you find two words. Destiny?

Thank you very much!
