Uncle joe is so annoying :D but it felt nice to answer to him. I was imagining being sarcastic but my anger rose.


Friday convo might be a bit too short?

Pheeewww, you really captured the essence of a family conversation with an idiot, I was actually seething with anger by Sunday. Excellent work, you absolutely nailed what you were going for.

Really nice one, great overall settings and the conversations are nice. Had fun playing through this!

Very interesting concept and the music was great! Good game!

Great concept, well-executed. The dialogs felt so real! The music is very well chosen too.

My only issue is with the time management: I would have appreciated a timer that shows how long you have left to answer a question. I also think having a timer for each day is a bad idea, there are some days where I didn't have time to finish the conversation, which is just frustrating.

This was a super interesting submission.  I enjoyed the dialogue, but some of it felt a little buggy.  Really original!

Clever idea and it was pretty fun trash-talking that asshole Joe!

Developer

Haha, thanks!

Thanks for the game! I enjoyed how with the dialogue you captured the social angst that can happen with family dinners.

I think the game would have been stronger without the waiting wild card, but i get why it was there (i'd assume the timer was the implementation of that).  I would have liked to have had more tension in my decisions, maybe having the decisions show more clearly what the pros/cons were so that balancing those 4 resources would have been more stressed.

Thank you for your feedback and suggestion! If I continue to work on the game, I’ll definitely implement some indication of the impact of the different options.

Fun game! Love the dialogue. Unfortunately something about the window settings made this hard to play. The text was really tiny and there was a lot of blank space.

Developer

Oh no! The UI was definitely rushed. Thanks for pointing it out!

Uncle Joe is actually infuriating I am fuming

He was definitely inspired by some real-life experience :D

Love the writing. Many snarky dialogue choices and annoying replies from Uncle Joe.

Developer

Thank you so much!
