simple and funny concept for a game! felt more immersive as i played while walking through the streets of new york city. felt i could better rate this stranger's brain that way! i feel like it's only worth one run, but it's still a solid play! well done
left the fattest dookie in the world after eating that mac and cheese. 10/10.
in all seriousness, i think this is a pretty good demo for what you're trying to accomplish. it gives a feeling for two of the three character's personalities, it gives options for how the player can craft different types of MCs based on given reaction choices, it introduces players to the gameloop of day/night and death endings, and it leaves enough to know there'll be puzzles and problems later! i'm not usually one for voice acting, but i kept the voices on this time around. you all did a very good job, and it's one of the few games in the genre that i think do a proper job of a demo.
my only complaints mostly come in two forms: writing and UI. you have options for a gallery, but that's to come soon in the full game rather than in the demo. i had a mini panic trying to find ways to get CGs that didn't exist, until someone told me that the CGs weren't even in the game yet, so I didn't have to scramble to replay over and over. i think a "coming soon" would have been good on the CG screen for the sake of the demo if there was nothing to unlock at this point. with writing, it's mostly about the tenses. sometimes the past and present tense would be used in the same sentence when it shouldn't have. i think it's worth establishing if you want to write this game in the past or present and try to fix verbs. i also saw this with "you" and "i" being used by the MC to refer to themselves. it's just a matter of proofreading!
overall, i think you all did an incredible job to deliver such a quaint little visual novel, ad i'm excited to see where this goes in the future. good luck to the team!!!
god! seeing this whole project come together after playtesting is incredible. you all made such a wonderful and detailed project in just a month, and it may be one of [if not my absolute] favorite games to come out of this spooktober. the art, combined with atmosphere from background noise and the voices, creates this melancholy dream of both being in control of the world while it pricking at your skin enough to give it cuts. it's one of my favorites, you did such a good job, and i'm excited to see what you all make next time around!
yeah i had a feeling it wasn't your fault (i've run into the same problem as well), but i hope you can get that original ost and stuff along the way! just wanted to let you know in case anything bad came of the music being copyrighted!
OHHHh thank you for the comment! they're tattoos but also scars in a way, and they're super important in the grand story (especially the cross one on their chest). i wanted to write an mc with a bit of spunk because i know sometimes people are like "oh, i'd rip this asshole apart!" when playing games of this nature, and although you can't do it, you can at least verbally express it! ♡ people are not often kept like this with them, but they can last anywhere from a few days to up to three months.
i'm glad you enjoyed!
GOSH, what a heart-wrencher! the character dynamic feels so real and hooks you in so quick on loving cade, and yet rips it all away. the writing is great, rita did a WONDERFUL job voice acting, mary's art is GORGEOUS, and everything else is awesome! congrats on the entry and thank you so much for making me cry baby tears and remember to watch marcel the shell with shoes on
didn't read the sound warning. probably should've. how can i kill a man so pretty in your gorgeous style?!
the maze sequence was probably the coolest thing i've seen out of any o2a2 project so far. you did a WONDERFUL job, holy shit!
it's not often that a visual novel actually makes me cry like a baby, but this one did. i nearly lost my brother a few years back, so the feelings around time and grief really sat with me in a way that had me going "NOT FUNNY, CRIED". thank you so much for something so gorgeous!
