I really enjoyed playing through this! The different rooms were a nice touch and I like how it gradually got more and more claustrophobic.

The sound works really well in this - good job.

Thank you!! I definitely want to keep this going - I'm thinking of separating it into chapters to be played one at a time.

Thanks for your comment, much appreciated!!

I'm so glad you enjoyed and explored a few different paths!! Thanks for playing :D

This is a really fun concept and I love the look and style. It would be really cool if there were more areas to explore/different characters to unlock.

This was surprisingly fun and satisfying, and I started to get really competitive with the other fish! I like the simple art style and I'd definitely play again if there were more levels.

I had a lot of fun playing this, it felt really immersive and I liked that I had to keep an eye on my thirst level and make tough decisions. I liked the simplicity of the three locations, and the unexpected visitors to the dusty path. Would definitely play this again.

This is really fun, I found the level with the spikes pretty hard! It's simple but it works well and kept my attention :)

I really like the chill vibe of this game, and I enjoyed all the little chemistry jokes. The dialogue was great, and I felt pretty bad about being a lonely little molecule!!

I love the style of this, and I really enjoyed exploring. Highlighting the items with text was a nice touch, and I'd love to have a wider area to explore.

This is a really fun idea with a nice art style! It was harder than I expected, but satisying to improve at. I played on desktop but can see it being great on a phone.

Fun little game, and I liked that I got to choose my captain name/face at the start! Love the animation when I hit the enemies.

Wow, I really enjoyed this game! It's simple, but the text kept me engaged and the music worked really well. I felt real disappointment when the well was empty, and relief when it rained!

This is such a simple concept but it works really well!! I love the overall look of the game, and the fact that controls aren't complicated.

I really enjoyed this, and it's so inspiring to see that there's so much you can do with twine! I've just started experimenting with it for my first game, and there's tons I want to go back and try after playing this. The story was interesting and engaging, and I could really picture the different locations. I like the fact that it's separated into acts and lets me save and come back later. I also really like your choice of color and font - and your map! Such a cool game :)

I LOVE this game so much!! The art is extremely cute, the music is nice and relaxing, and it's enough of a challenge without being frustrating. It's really satisfying to see everything get cleaned up at the end of the game, and it has a great message. Well done guys!!

Pitch/Information: A short interactive fiction game which starts with you living on the streets.

I'd like feedback on: Anything really, but especially the story, how engaging it is, whether the passages feel too long/short, and how much it all  makes sense!

I had lots of fun bouncing around in this game, and I loved the surprise of seeing which room I'd get next! I'd love to play more once the other features are developed, and it would be nice to have some music/sound. Great job overall!!

Thank you!! I definitely want to add more to the story. Thanks so much for playing :D

I've uploaded my game!! Take a look here: https://sleepygame.itch.io/home

I didn't have time to do everything I wanted to, although I'm still really happy to have a (somewhat) complete game! I've got several different endings which I'm happy with, I've learned tons about using Twine, and I've managed to make time for game dev in my normal life.

Going forward, I've got a few goals for this game:

1. Improve the look of the game using CSS.

2. Experiment with adding sound to make the game more immersive.

3. Develop some of the endings, particularly the shorter ones.

4. Draw some simple images to add to certain passages.

And goals not related to this game:

1. Make another Twine game using more conditionals, etc.

2. Experiment with two other games engines.

3. Upload two more games before the end of 2018.

4. Try working on a simple game as part of a team.

Being part of this jam has really given me the motivation I needed to make my first game, something I've been wanting to try forever. I'm so happy I joined and definitely want to keep going :D

Yes, it was a really good idea!! Definitely given me tons more to think about.

This is looking really cool! You've made so much progress in a short time! I really like the idea of hallucinations when your water meter gets too low.

Days 9 - 13
These days have been focused on typing up as much story as possible and trying to add more options so that the game feels more interactive - this was some helpful feedback I got from the playtesting thread.

I've planned out four endings, and managed to write all of the passages for two of them. It definitely gets tricky to keep track of everything, so hopefully I haven't made too many mistakes. Below is a screenshot showing a bit of my progress.


I'd really like to experiment more with changing the way the game looks, adding sounds, images, and altering the CSS. I'm not sure I'll have time for all that, though, so for now my aim is just to get a complete story with four different endings.

Hoping I can make it in time!

This looks really cute so far!! I love the style. I hope you manage to get it finished, even if it takes a bit longer!

I love the art style of this! I'm not that familiar with this style of game so a bit more guidance in the instructions or a little tutorial would be handy. I was a bit confused about where in the pipe system I was, if anywhere? Don't have any specific music recommendations, but I'm imagining something retro and cute!

Thanks so much for taking the time to play and type out this comment, I really appreciate it! Your feedback on the story is especially useful, and I'm glad you're getting the creepy vibe from HomeTM - that's what I want to develop in the rest of the game. 


I really like the idea of adding pictures and sound and am definitely gonna experiment with that. Stuff like rain sounds from outside could be cool I think, and maybe some simple black and white images to illustrate the different locations. Thanks for your recommendations - the sound and images in The Temple Of No definitely add a lot, super inspiring!


Your feebback has given me tons to think about, so thanks again.

Ah I'm so glad you enjoyed it - thanks for commenting. I've got lots more story to add this week and your comment is motivating me to get on it!

Thank you so much for playing, your feedback is SO helpful! I'm definitely going to work on adding more choices so that the story feels more interactive. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll check Adam Cadre out for sure - just the titles of his interactive fiction games have me intrigued!

Definitely!!

Day 6/7

Was busy with work these days so didn't do much other than add a few passages and mull over how I'd like the game to end. Still not certain, endings are so hard and I'm not sure how many alternatives I want to include.

Day 8

I have submitted my unfinished game to the playtesting thread so it will be interesting to get some feedback. This was my first time uploading something to itch.io so it was a good learning experience, and I can see there are lots of options when it comes to your game page. I'd like to learn more about these to get it looking nice and polished when I'm done.

Also not certain about what size is best for the viewport dimensions, and am thinking a few of my passages are a bit too long - I don't really want people to have to scroll up and down the page while playing.

I'm excited to learn more about all of this side of things!

Game Title/URL: Home™

Pitch/Information: Interactive fiction. You're homeless and you've got some tough decisions to make.

I'd like feedback on: Anything! Would also love recommendations of other Twine games I can play for inspiration - I've seen some really cool ones already.

P.S. Game isn't finished yet so the ending might feel a bit abrupt!

This is such a cute idea, I love it!

This sounds like such a cute, fun game! I love the simple concept.

I'm excited to learn more about this mysterious greenhouse! Looks like you've made great progress so far.

I really like how this looks - the font and colors work so well together! Excited to see how it develops.

Day 5

I've added a little more to the story today, and I'm enjoying test playing from different points and making tweaks.


I've tested a few different games from the interactive fiction section and got plenty of inspiration.

I've realized that the main factors leading to me quitting early are:

  • Fonts that are too hard to read
  • Paragraphs that are too long
  • Not having an idea of how long the game will take to play
  • Too many spelling mistakes/typos/etc

So, I'm going to try and avoid these issues in my finished game. I'm looking forward to the weekend when I'll have more time and can hopefully get a kind of 'first draft' of the entire game complete.

Oooh, I like the idea and the title really grabbed my attention! Looks like you're doing great so far.

This is looking really fun!! I love the little pixel fish.
