I also struggled to pick up the core gameplay, plenty of clicks but I couldnt tell where the score was. I really liked the aesthetic and vibe of the game. Good ambiance music and visuals. So nice work!

I believe that this issue can be fixed if I sit down and work on game design a bit more, thanks.  :) Also huge thanks for the compliments! ^^

Awesome graphics, a very polished job.  A bit confusing gameplay but a great experience overall :)

Interesting core premise. Started to figure out some of the clues. Not sure I figured out all of them but it was a lot different. Kind of experimental. I like that in a game jam game. 

Developer

Thank you, glad that you enjoyed! I really wanted to go ahead and experiment in this game jam and make something different for once. It's pleasing to hear that you noticed that. :)

Great artwork! As you've said the game is raw, and I thik there's too little interesting features in it. Just looking for the correct button. Maybe you can make buttons run away from cursor, get smaller, swap positions after clicking instead of the current gameplay? I like the sounds.

Developer(+1)

Thanks! Actually, your reply gave me a truly important hint, I now think that the rules could be shifted as the player goes further in the game, because I also think that remembering/finding what is what will get old very fast and the game can be beaten by just writing down each symbol and its meaning somewhere.

Good game :D but it requires some information on what i am doing and why i am doing that. other than that i can see this game being a hyper casual masterpiece. Good luck :D

if you would like to test my game:

I like the phrase "hyper casual", that's something I want to create! :) Thank you for your feedback.

Submitted

Very nice look and feel, good feedback, although not sure about what the gameplay is and what the goal is.

Developer(+1)

Thank you for the feedback! These things definitely need to become clear.

Submitted(+1)

i love the music! couldn't really figure out how it works, but overall an extremely well put together game. good job!

Developer

Thank you for the kind words! :)

Submitted(+1)

Very cool and unique!  The art is so crisp and color choices are great, so even though not much is happening other than clicking it is still nice to look at haha.  Great ambient sound and music too. Definitely work on it some more after getting some feedback~ pls try my browser game if you have time.

Developer

Thank you for the compliments! :) Indeed, there isn't much to do in the game, that's its main drawback and I am not sure if I know how to fix it. It was a neat experiment, at least. ;)

Submitted(+1)

That was trippy! :D good job there!!! Really unique and atmospheric game ^^^

Developer

Thank you! Actually, when I was developing it, I kept repeating the word "Trippy, Trippy, Trippy" to try and come up with something like that, haha.

This was the only jam game so far that gave me an 'Aha-Moment'. Great music and nice art. I really enjoyed the game, but I think it would get boring after a while. Maybe if there was more to do, this could become a nice mobile game.

Developer(+1)

Hey, what you said in that comment is literally the most pleasing thing to my ears, because "Aha-Moment" is what I was hoping to achieve. Indeed, more stuff was planned and I didn't manage to add all of it. Thank you for playing!

Submitted(+1)

Interesting idea and great atmosphere! :)

but to me it it is too cryptic, even with reading some tips I'm still not sure if I get it 100%.

Developer

Thanks! I got so many replies about not knowing what to do that now I will probably put something like that on my wall: "CLARITY FIRST, YOU DUM DUM DESIGNER!" :)

Submitted

Interesting prototype, with a little bit of love it will become a full game :)

Developer

Luckily, love is what I have! :) Thank you for the kind words.

Submitted

Really atmospheric music and I had fun trying to get the hang of the game!

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Thank you, the musician shall be proud. :) I really like the soundtrack he came up with, too.

Submitted(+1)

Nice game !

I had fun figuring out what to do in the game, nice visual and sounds, but is there an end ? (got 20+ stars but it gets old after a while when there is no objective or reward)

Developer(+1)

Thank you so much for playing it thus far! Sorry for not leaving a note in the description that no progression was added to the game yet. I am glad you enjoyed the game nonetheless. :)

Submitted(+1)

The art is nice and it's interesting that getting it wrong decreases your total score. I stopped when I got to 20 in the hope of not losing a bunch of points again, but I suppose there is a special message when you get to -1. There seemed to be a relation between the icons and their score (+1 or -1), but I couldn't figure it out.

Developer

Hi, thank you for playing! The hint lies in one single picture to the left that changes on every level. If you remember which picture is which button, everything should be clear. ;)

Submitted(+1)

I didn't understand the game. Can you please explain it.

Developer

Hi! The game relies on remembering which icon (in the middle of the menu to the left) represents which button, once you figure it out. 

Submitted(+1)

Thanks!

It was cool, trying to figure out what the different icons meant in terms of game rules. Took me a while and I still don't quite get all of them haha.

Good work on the graphics, looks very cool. The style reminds me a bit of the submachine game series which I love.

Developer(+1)

Thank you for the kind words and especially for introducing me to Submachine! It does, indeed, look very exciting and may become a big source of inspiration for me.

It's a great webgame series by a single guy who has built this really interesting universe over many years. It's often super atmospheric and can be quite thought provoking, at least to me. Enjoy :)

Took a bit to figure out, think its really promising especially  if you expanded on it! Graphics, music and game play fit together really well! Great job

I'd love it if you'd play my game https://itch.io/jam/wowie-jam-2/rate/553005

Liked the atmosphere and music in this one! It was a bit unclear what to do at first, but then I understood I just had to search for the "plus" giving item most of the time. Would've liked to see something happen when you go to a higher number (I got 20+) or below 1. Could be a start of something interesting, just need a lot more events and other stuff.

Developer(+1)

I planned to make things change with levels and add a lot more things, but didn't have time to implement that. However, making something happen when below level 1 is something I didn't think of. It's a creative idea, thank you! :)
