So, the art, animation and music are superb, but the game severely lacks much else. I don't think you can really call the game "story rich" when everything that constitutes a story here is just the player being told to do something. There's so little context or information given out in the pretty large amount of dialogue present that I never felt as if I was understanding anything, but just being ordered around. It really feels like the game just needs to slow down and take three deep breaths between each scene. The combat was frustrating too, and I don't think it was because of the mechanics, but rather the lack of sound design and the arena in which it's used. Due to the visual design, the trees are extremely hard to track when you're focusing on the projectiles coming at you, so nearly every death (after the first two) felt cheap due to my inability to move past them. You have a really solid foundation here, it just needs a bit of post-jam love!
Thanks for playing our game. Watched your video, agree with most you said. The story is really fast paced with no context, true, was expecting more people talking about this. Would have loved to have time to being able to add more context, improve dialogs and slow everything a bit but we wanted to show as much as we could and there was no time for both.
Also agree with the combat, wanted to give a that area a reason to exist and we needed an area for the robot fight so chose it but immediately noticed the contrast would make it hard to see the robot attacks but there was no time to create a different area for it so that was it. Sorry for not having sounds, it would have also improved the 'ok, he is going to attack with this' so you don't have to memorize the battle, but we had no sound designers :\. Anyways, I bought a humblebundle with lot of sounds so it can be made for next updates.
Wrote a FAQ here in the game page since most people negative comments have been on the same aspects, in case you wanna check it and thanks for beliving we have a strong base for a good complete game, I do believe it too.
