I'll start with what I liked about the game. The pixelated art style, it's something that always draws me in and that's no exception here, to me the game looks fantastic, there's also a very good use of colour here. I enjoyed meeting and chatting with the various characters in the game, each one has their own unique relationship and past with Smoke and the dialogue options are a nice touch.
The overall story here is good, but very bizarre, that can either be a good or bad thing depending on who you are, to me it's a good thing as it gives the player something to think about while they explore the environments. Smoke doesn't necessarily represent the typical "drunk" depicted in a lot of media, he doesn't seem to be violent or aggressive in any way, he just appears to be a very sad bear trying to sort through his pain and anguish the only way he knows how, by drinking. Now of course this isn't always the best way to deal with pain, but I can understand where he's coming from having been in a similar position myself, I can't relate to the events in his life but I can relate to his solution. I like that I was able to connect with the main character like that in this game, even if it wasn't what was intended.
I don't have any complaints about the game and I'm happy to report that I didn't run into any bugs or errors while playing
I do however have a question. One of my viewers was wondering if the dialogue choices throughout the game have any weight on the overall ending, like if you choose to be aggressive with everyone do they hurt Smoke and then maybe he realizes he needs help or something?
All in all this was a bizarre and interesting game, one that made me think and one that allowed me to connect with a character in a way I didn't think I would. Very good work here.
I hope you don't mind but I made a let's play video of my time with the game over on my channel.
Cheers and best wishes to you,
