Interesting intro ! It makes me want to know more about the story :)

At beginning I didn't understand how play it, but after some minutes all start to make sense, I really enjoyed the game it is fun!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

The intro was very interesting - i'd like to think there was a large backstory behind it. I like the minimalist graphics but I found the collecting tasks to be too much work. When I got to the elevator I just noticed I could move without seeing my character. I opted for doing that as fast as I could to see what the next part of the game was. I guess my suggestion would be to have something more engaging than collecting resources back and forth. I think it works for games like RTS because its automated.

Overall its a neat little concept and I would be interested to see where you take it if you decide to further the idea.

Hello, thanks for the feedback! I agree that the tasks were not much fun and you got bored quickly. If I will decide to work more on this project I'll do something about it.

It was okay at first, the experience of of the world was nice. But then I had to go between 3 stories to build this one bridge, and I never even got to use the bridge because the game ended. The camera wasn't fast enough to keep up when I went  between floors, maybe that's the point but I just found myself doing things off screen because I didn't really care what it would look like just as long as the job got done... Any way it looks like you planned to do more jobs than you have currently so I can't complain too much. Not sure what the point was, but good job :)

Hello, thanks for the feedback. I completely agree with you. The camera isn't good and the game got too repetitive over time. I don't think I'll add more jobs over time as this game was intended as a "first jam experience only" and I feel like I need to gain a little bit more skills before moving onto something bigger. Anyways thanks for the feedback and have great day!

oh no please expand the game, it has loads of potential

Developer

Don't worry. As I said I need to gain a little bit more skills before moving on a bigger project. So maybe when I got the skills I will expand this game. It is likely but I am not promising anything ;).
