Developer

I... kept shooting after discovering the truth

Certainly great to see a game with a specific theme and three endings in a 48 hour game jam but I wonder if the time dedicated to that couldn't have been used in providing a slightly better experience of playing the game. The random placement of the 'enemies' makes it difficult to judge which way to go and you could have had a better signalled enemy entrance and then ramp up the difficulty (aside from having a swarm of them follow you for the 'good' ending). Happily, it's short enough that I stuck out all three endings so well done there and while I think you could have handled the theme a little better (maybe with a little more nuance and more thought put into the whole 'medication will cure this' side of things), it's a solid entry.

Developer

Thanks! Im glad u liked it!

Also, thanks for the feedback! Was gonna add the increasing difficulty, but was tight on time (I still had 15 hours left, but it was late at night and i couldnt jam at all the next day before the deadline)

About the enemy spawning, I'll definitely keep that in mind for next time!

I have a few points to criticize. firstly: i don’t find the topic of this game jam in the game, it would be great if you would explain it to me. secondly: you could have seen the character of four states, but you only showed the character going left and going right. I would have seen the character walking from the left to the front and back. Third: I find the game boring after a while because there is no increase in the difficulty. You could have made the opponents faster over time. Fourth: the opponents just showed up somewhere without warning, you could have let them come from the side. or let it play a little effect beforehand. So if you have time to react and not run straight into the opponent.

The enemy spawning, without any warning... there are times the literally spawn on me... Interesting take, making it psychological-ish, however, the second look of the guys were a lot more creepy than the original.

Developer

Lol thx, I'll definitely improve enemy spawning mechanics  next time!

Interesting take, would be nice if you had some sort of telegraph that would show when an enemy was spawning a few seconds later.

Nice top down shooter that sticks to the theme. Sometimes enemies would just appear on top of me, so maybe if they came from off screen, it'd give the player more of a chance to react. Ha or I just git good

Developer

Thanks alot : )

ill definitely keep the enemy spawning thing in mind for next time I make a game like this!

Interesting psychological take on the theme. I didn't expect a jam game with multiple endings and a dark story, however I enjoyed it very much. Especially that the connection to the theme is revealed after you've murdered many innocent children. I thought the ending 3/3 would be to kill 100 enemies without taking too much medicine. Yet I was wrong. How do you get the 3rd ending?


P.S It would be great if you could check out my game :)

Developer

Thanks :D

Yoy can get the third "good ending" if you collect all the meds without any kills :)

Also ill be sure to check out ur game!

I really like the art style. the music is really beautiful too. but I tried so many times to get to the good ending and I still can't get to it. but overall it was fun playing it and don't forget to play my game on https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2020/rate/698144  

Developer

Thanks! I'll check out ur game!

I like the little dudes, they are funny with their little leg animations. Nice to see an arcade style game with different endings and choices of how you play, don'y see that too often.

Developer

Thanks, im glad you liked it :D
