I just wanted to say, I played all of these, tho some I may have skimmed... a little bit... and I never found Holly. Not even close >_<

I enjoyed your variety of variety of genres a lot -- probably the one easiest for me to appreciate personally was Nine Big Moods. The short descriptions felt really haphazardly evocative, and that was great. I don't know if this was intentional, but I thought they were procedurally generated. They felt like extremely good procedural generation and the disconnectedness of the statements pushed at that angle for me.

Congrats on making it to 7!

Hi! Thank you! I was afraid that, without a large enough playerbase to chip in and solve clues, the ARG may have been too difficult. but oh well!

NGM is actually not procedurally generated, they're autobiographical snippets instead. But it's great to hear that they came across well either way! I thought it would have been cool to do a procedural thing based on those segments, but didn't have the knowhow/spare time to do so. Maybe next time...

Thanks for putting the jam on and advertising it on twitter, where I picked it up - even if it was just me on my own, it still gave me the push to make a bunch of games, which has been a good learning experience!
