Thank for joining in the jam - apologies for taking so long to comment - life got in the way!

This made me laugh. :-D I like the randomness of it and the writing style.

I agree with Jupiter - it's well written and I enjoyed it. I should have created a map for myself though at the start, so I didn't get lost.

I love how silly this is, as well as the writing and the image montages. :-D

This is such a great looking entry. I loved the little animations, for example the rolling sea. I also really liked the fact that you had another character telling Odysseus' story.

I liked the writing in this and the abstract style. The shifts in the presentation style worked well too.

I really enjoyed this - so well written and a nice sea based sci-fi twist. I hope you do keep developing it.

I liked the modern take on the theme, the fact that you chose to make a visual novel and the hand drawn graphics.

I really enjoyed this... the style and also the take on the theme - a philosophical conversation with Odysseus.

This entry is great. So much variety (visual novel, RPG, battles), but still a strong text element. Loved the graphics. :-)

Thanks for playing Jupiter & for the video of the jam. :-)

I really liked the humour in this. I was hoping that my patience would pay off in the end, but guess what... it didn't. :-)

Once I'd realised how to interpret what other characters, objects & Shakespeare were doing around me (& how to tailor my actions to that) that helped.

Hi charon@ss. Thanks for the explanation. I now see how you tied it into the theme. I'm happy to keep it in. Thanks for taking part. :-)

Thanks for submitting this entry into the jam. It's interesting and original and I enjoyed playing it, but I couldn't find any reference to Shakespeare in it. Have I missed it somewhere?

Great entry. That was fun & frustrating, and the idea of having a quiz show was novel. Will I ever get through to the final, I wonder? Probably not! The Stephen Fry cameo was perfect, and I enjoyed the twist endings. Thanks for getting involved. :-)

This was such a detailed piece of interactive fiction. The character interactions & humour were great. At one point I thought I wasn't going to get past Act IV though, but I managed it in the end. Great work. Thanks for getting involved in the jam. :-)

I really liked your idea of using a Hamlet production as a setting for exploring the tricky world of teenage relationships. Fun character graphics too. :-)

Thanks for joining the jam. I'm looking forward to playing this later. :-)

Thanks for entering the jam. I'll look forward to playing this at the end of the jam.

Thanks for entering the jam. I'll look forward to playing it. :-)

Thanks for the playthrough, Jupiter. :-)

Really great idea, fun and well made too. :-)

I thought the way you used the device to control the gun was very clever.

This was good fun, especially the asides you included. :-)

Such a fun and funny idea for a game. Looks great too. Nice work. :-)

Thanks for the positive comment, Jupiter. Really glad you liked it. :-) Thanks for including it in the video too.

Created a new topic Deadline extended

Hi. I've extended the deadline by a day, as itch.io was down for some time.

Don't forget that you can also submit unfinished pieces too.

You're welcome, Jeremy.

Created a new topic Thanks

Thanks to everyone who got involved in Bard Jam. I've enjoyed playing/reading all of the entries, and each one gives a new spin on Shakespeare and his works. I also enjoyed contributing my entry too.

- Gary

Thanks for getting involved in the jam. I enjoyed playing your entry. It was interesting to see the focus on one of the side-characters of The Tempest, but one who played a significant role in the lead up to the main body of the play. Nice work. :-)

Hi Jeremy. Thanks for letting me know. I've re-opened the jam submission (for a couple of days), so you can submit your game - it seemed a shame to not have it in, as you were so close to finishing. Well done on finishing your first game. :-)

Thanks - Gary

Even if you're working on a game and won't have it finished by the deadline I'd still be interested in seeing what you're working on, so please feel free to upload it even if it's incomplete.
Created a new topic Playing the jam entries

Hi all. I'm Gary and I set up the jam. Thanks for getting involved. As I'm entering the jam too and don't want to be influenced by any other entries I won't be playing them until after I've submitted mine. I'm looking forward to reading/playing them though.... I just need to get my submission finished!

Created a new topic Additional theme

Here's the additional theme for the jam. All you have to do is include one of the following Shakespeare phrases in your #BardJam entry:

  • "Knock, knock, knock! Who's there?"
  • "give the devil his due."
  • "Thought is free."
