Nifty idea, but becomes a major slog after the first two or three passes. The writing also comes off as Sophomore, especially with the forced alliteration.


This was a really neat way to convey a story, it felt much more immersive than just reading text. And I loved the art style, very sleek! It did really hurt for some sound. I was also a bit disappointed by the end, fading out at what I thought was going to be a climactic finish. But I enjoyed the journey nonetheless! 


The art and game mechanics are really cool. It could use some sounds and music. Nicely done


I love the art style and the idea is cool.

We used very similar mechanic in our game. I even ran into problems in my game that I also see in yours (see screenshot)

2 tips I can give you: 

1) You can use tools, so that the resolution of the game don't make things get cut off on the sides

2) Point light is a bit buggy in unity, and you see little black lines sometimes. If you use the other 2D light this doesn't happen

I still liked it, and using the puzzle to keep the payer focused on the story is very smart.


Thank you ! I'll definitely check those out



I liked your game, especially the concept, but it was a little undone by a lack of audio and a couple buggy moments.

Thank you for the kind words!!
