The story behind 10 out of 10! The art is amazing! The scene is cool. I wanted some game play in this world, at least to explore it a little!

Developer

Thanks! Yes I will definitely try to improve the gameplay aspect on my next game.

It was interesting, but didn't really feel like a game. Maybe I'm just missing the whole point of it though. The opening scene with the sunrise was amazing, well done. 

Developer

Thank you very much for your feedback! Yes, you are absolutely right: This isn't the classical game in regards to gameplay and more of an interactive story and therefore not for everyone. But that is okay, maybe I can find a better balance between gameplay and story in my next one :)

Loved this. The art is incredible. The first panel with the sunrise was honestly breath taking. It felt like playing through a movie rather than much of a game, but that's ok! Some audio would have been great. Really like the narration style! A game developer stylized twist on the biblical creation story. Great entry.

Oh, wow! Thank you for your kind words! Reading something like that motivates me. Yeah, it really turned out to be more of a playable movie. But I like that kind of games, so I would say that is a good thing. The audio part was scheduled to be the very last thing and fell of in the end because of the time limit. Whatever ... next time :D

Quite nice experience. It miss a bit of movement when we are in FPS view on the island. But good idea.

Developer

Thank you for your feedback!

Yeah, I actually played with the idea but it would have taken to much time to realize in this short time, so I skipped this part. :)

You are welcome.
Fair enough time is dififcult to manage.
If you got a bit of time i would apreciate to get your feedback on my proposal. : https://itch.io/jam/kindred-community-jam-6/rate/989211

Sure! I was planning to do that anyways :)

Nice idea and beautiful graphics. It would've been nice if I was able to move around, and if there was a bit more to do, but the interactive parts were still lots of fun. A bit of audio would've been nice, but considering the short amount of time you had to make it, it doesn't really matter; I didn't have time to add music to mine in the end.

Developer

Thanks for your feedback. I totally agree with you!

Will keep it in mind for the next time :)

Very Good Idea. Loved the game felt all that was missing was making the ocean voxel as well but other than that really good. keep making games

Developer

Thank you very much! I will keep that in mind! :)

Very cool idea! Great artstyle.

There was no sound, dont know if that is intentional, but just some simple ocean/wind sounds would have lifted the experience quite a bit.

Developer

Thank you for your rating! I planned to do the music/sounds at the very end, but a problem with exporting the project from Unreal took me like an hour to fix. Whatever ... next time I do that first! Lessons learned! ;)
