  • This was put together really well! It provided more of a narrative sequence than I was expecting, and loved the scripted moments in the game. The voice acting is definitely a strength that adds to the fun and character of the experience, and I think providing voiced interactions with others in the game really enhanced its polish. The humour really shines through as well, which is always a a plus when trying to present the space horror genre in new ways. The framework for a really good space horror game is set up here, and I liked how many features there were, from ammo management, to keys for doors, to a health and health regeneration system - making for a complex game!

    For constructive criticism, I think a big thing that could improve this game is allowing the player to anticipate threats and danger a little easier. The slog of shooting enemies and explosives was quite tricky because, without knowing exactly where the explosives are, enemies could quickly overpower the player. Also, the addition of different shot types (single/triple) was neat, but a little frustrating that the single shot wouldn't hit some enemies, even if they were approaching the player. With more time, I think this could shape up into an awesome full  game if desired - exploring a larger station would be a blast! 

    Congrats on finishing this game and thanks for submitting it to SCREAMWORLD!

The voices are a nice touch. Just the right amount of weird (bananas are keys). It does a nice job of telling you what to do, except I think I had to figure out the shoot button for myself. The game does quickly get frustrating once the screamies come out and get you. A checkpoint system would be a welcomed agitation reliever. Nice work, humorous entry.
