The shader work is great! Really nailed the look and feel.  I wished I could slow down the printer or rewind it (maybe you can and I missed it?).   The game was pretty difficult and I wasn't able to win but it had a great look and feel. Great work!

Developer

Thanks for your kind words! As with a few other things, we ran out of time with this, but we definitely want to add an option to configure the printer speed.

Amazing! Salute.

Developer

Thanks! ^^

Really great art and original concept. I loved the atmosphere, I wish it had some nice music to go along with it. I find it a bit hard to solve in the end, as the hints weren't very helpful. For example I kept getting hints about bacteria even though the research on it was already done. But it looks really polished overall.

Developer

We... actually forgot to remove the hints once a research area is completed... 😶

Thanks for mentioning that! That needs to be reworked..

Quite profesional. Very good atmosphere. Some kind of tutorial would be nice.

Developer

Glad you like it! We thought about a tutorial, but then we ran out of time even with the gameplay stuff and decided to explain the controls right on the Itch.io game page, but it might actually be better if we would add some instructions into the game itself.

Amazing UI, bravo 👏!

Love the concept, reminds me of Plague Inc and Pandemic. Good stuff.

I found it hard to progress towards the cure. I clicked on research items but nothing seemed to change in the UI. Not sure if a bug or I was doing something wrong... 🤔

Developer

Yes, you are on the right track! When designing the game we had Plague Inc in mind and decided to show the situation from the other side.

The research feature is actually still a problem. In the last few hours of the jam we came a little under time pressure and couldn't implement the notification about the costs of Research Points for your research. Right now the research will cost you the displayed amount of money plus ten Research Points. You see your current number of Research Points on the right screen in the lower left corner.

The aesthetic and theming of this game is top notch man, nice work. The amount of stuff going on is slightly overwhelming but I guess reasonable given that you're overseeing a global pandemic haha

Developer

Thanks for the compliment! We used this jam to try out some new shaders and UI theme stuff and it worked surprisingly well. ^^
