Anything you want to say to players before they play?
Good luck. Try and give the game some time as it needs it for game studios to produce games and game reviewers then to review them

OK, I finally uploaded a video of my playthrough, it can be found here:

Thanks for the wonderful feedback. It was awesome to see someone actually play it. I think I've figured out what was most boring about the game and, if I have time, I'll probably improve on those things soon! After seeing you play it I wouldn't rated the game better myself! I think the game wasn't as bad as the final place  in the jam suggests, but people didn't have the patience and that positive attitude you did. Cheers!

The idea is very interesting, but the game window seems to be larger than my desktop. I can interact with things just off screen, but I have no idea what they are. Yours may be another I have to rate via watching stream archives.

Developer

That's weird. Again with the resolution issues. What is the resolution of your screen?

I've tested it on 1920x1080 and on 1368x768

Developer

I assume that the stretching isn't properly set so if the game isn't in 16:9 mode the problem occurs. If possible, please try to play while your desktop resolution is in 16:9

Very unique take on a sim. Gameplay is a little slow going though, with the multitude of options available. Needs sound fx, some UX experience work, visual organisation so that I can see relevant info e.g. what are the contracts that I am on, and what types of games are there, and a calendar when these games get released. The UI also needs some work e.g. can't go back on some screens.

Pretty interesting game!  I would have wanted more feedback showing when tasks had been complete and the cooldowns on these tasks, like sending an email.  I did figure it out eventually but I would have appreciated a little more clearness-ishness.  Overall, pretty fun! Think it needs just a little more clarity to really get me into the game!  Really liked the name generation system!

Developer

Thank you Heinrich! I agree with you 100% but you know how it is with game jams, never enough time to implement every little thing. I'll probably update it after the jam is finished.

Awesome! I totally understand, it was a helluva crunch!  I'd definitely try this again if you guys ever update, I do like this format of game a lot.

Don't forget to try White Gorge (our team's submission) and give us some well deserved feedback as well ;)

Default resolution is too large to be playable. Might need to make resolution scalable, or lower. Cannot rate at this time.

Developer

The default is 720p but I've set it to scale according to your screen. How big is your screen?

Submitted

1920x1200

Developer

That's really really weird. Can you please send me a screenshot of your desktop so I can figure out what's going on?

There's something wrong with the stretching aspect of the engine. I'll look into it. If you are still interested in playing the game I'm sure that changing your resolution to 16:9 will fix the problem
