Really nice and original. I'm glad I tried it :)

I really enjoyed this! I love the concept of a Dating Sim  / Pachinko, and your artwork is eye-catching. Keep it up! ๐Ÿ‘

Developer

Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜ Glad you had fun with Alyssa!

I think the adherence to the theme is a slight stretch, but the amount of polish you pulled off and the unique design of it really puts this as one of the best games in the jam for me, this definitely deserves more eyes on. 

Developer

Thanks a ton for playing and for the compliment :) Glad you enjoyed it!

The game looks great and the idea of combining a text adventure (I wonder if this is what the genre was called) with a ball game is really fun.

Developer

Thank you! :)

Those are INSANE levels of polish for a game jam! Pretty cool! Got high-five'd by Alyssa after she qualified :P
Check our game! https://cerosware.itch.io/one-stick-shooter

Thanks! :)

Played twice, ball got stuck both times.  ----->  \o/

Great art and presentation, great idea. Maybe I'm just bad with women.

Developer

Hahahaha You're definitely not, this was entirely my mistake ;) Sorry!
Thanks for playing!

I think a lot of players would definitely appreciate a replay button x)
A novel concept though ! The almost random probability could be spun in a way such that the player themselves are sort of drunk and have little control in what they say. Overall the build is very solid !

Developer(+1)

Heyho, Necktiedog! (btw, what an awesome username :D )
Thanks for playing, and that was exactly the message I was looking for!
We'll add a possibility for free play in the updated version after the jam, along with some extra content ;)

I've played some visual novels before so this was quite fun for me, I had a lot of Va11halla moments!

I would love to see this expanded as a full visual novel!

Good job this great!

Hey, we made a GMTK game too. Check it out!


Developer

Thanks, man! :) That's a really nice compliment! Glad you enjoyed the game :)

I never been so frustrated to play only once a game.  Alyssa is a cool girl. I want to play some Magic with her :)

Developer

XD Don't worry, we're already planning a more in-depth version that can be played more than once!
Thank you for playing! :)

Amazing work!  Very polished and well made.  I think I got a pretty good ending :)

Developer

Thank you for playing! :) Glad you enjoyed your date!

Great idea at a crossover between the dating sim and pinball-ish ball-drop games. Super high production quality too, and I didn't see any bugs. Great job!

Developer

Thank you very much! Glad you enjoyed it!
Also glad you haven't encountered any bugs, 'cause there are a lot XD

Alright, time to try it in real life

tbh, it was a really interesting game mechanic and some great graphic for a jam game

Developer

Thanks! :) Glad you enjoyed it!
It works even better in real life ;)

My first and best date ever! XD

Great graphics as always and great physics.
LIKE.

Developer(+2)

XD  I'm hoping you got one of the good endings ;)
Thank you for playing!

The art looks nice, but when I checked your other games I saw that you just made another copy of them, which doesn't seem right for a game jam.  As for the theme of only once if you wanted to make so that you can "only once" go on a first date, you could at least put a reference in the game if it detected that a player with the same ip has already played the game once or use cookies.

Developer

Heyho, whiteRocket!
I think it should do the ip/cookie thing internally (so you can play only once), but you're right that we should've communicated it better ingame ๐Ÿ‘
And yeah, the base gameplay is the same - we've released our final PinkOball Tentacle Tower version just before the jam and all we could think of were balls :D But most gameplay elements (bumpers, dialogue etc.) were new.
Stay funky,

I have to agree with this guy. It definitely goes against the spirit of the jam to reskin a previous game you released, even if you did add some new art and mechanics.

Submitted(+1)

Lmao, I can recognize you by your game art so easily xD (played most of ur games on GameJolt already :P)

Developer(+1)

XD Nice! You have a good eye! :)
Thanks for playing, my man!
