Well, this is easily my favorite entry of the jam, and a game I truly hope more people get a chance to play and rate before the voting is over. I've given it 5 stars all around. :)
Setting aside the excellent visual design/aesthetic and the great use of audio and sound cues to instill a beautifully lonesome atmosphere, this feels so incredibly personal and yet inspiring to experience. The puzzle-ish nature of finding the collectibles and figuring out what to do with them is the perfect framework for unravelling the story here, and the more you discover in the woods, the less you feel lost and disoriented. You're making connections through music and writing, and those connections help guide you and give you a sense of where you are and where you should go. It's such a good idea, and so well made!
Personally, finding the boomboxes and discovering what else was on the mixtape became my favorite part of exploring. I got so happy when (SPOILER!)
Sleater-Kinney and Portishead started playing! And it was truly rewarding to dance along with the music and watch the lanterns float. Just so freaking good :) I'll be recommending this to friends for sure.
