It's a neat idea that could a bit more clarity.  Maybe different-colored text to differentiate who's speaking?  And the background could definitely be toned down a little.  I mean, it added to the confusion and chaotic nature of picking up two different radio conversations, but it also hurt my head a little.  All in all, a really neat little game!

Thanks for the feedback!

This was a really cool concept.

I feel like some quality of life polish would help. I liked the letter static, but having the static audio in the background the whole time got a little grating on my ears. The dial turns pretty slow and you can't really tell whether you have the lights on or off in the end. Makes it difficult to really know whether you're helping or not. I think I would have enjoyed this one with actual audio a little more than text.

Still, over all, it's a neat idea.

Thanks for the feedback, I feel similar. I would have liked an audio track, but getting the story together already took so long, I don't think I'll do it for this project, but I may do it for a project in the future.

You found the static audio grating, do you think there is a version you wouldn't find so annoying?

Maybe something closer to this? Notice how radio static has a very different squawk to it than television static snow. It's more high pitched and hummy, and it changes as you move the dial, not just louder or quieter. It think 'softening' it overall is a good idea, but the variety helps from making it quite as irritating.

Good job! Really creative. I liked that it was simple to play but still had an engaging storyline.
