Merci beaucoup pour ton gentil commentaire!

Thank you for your honest comment!

Yes, the game looks empty - I guess even a nice animated gif preview wouldn't help much there. Players have to fill it with their thoughts. :) It makes me very happy that the game could convince you after you made that first step and gave it a chance!

Oh yes, I think I found them all! :)

You are motivating and inspiring too, with your project - showing how traditional art can shine in a game. :)

I'm sure that people who are into this kind of games won't have a problem to get to the boss! :)

There are also videos already for your game: check out rehvaro or blacketdeker on twitch, they did a stream for the whole game jam. :) But a nice video for your game page would be great, of course.

I was so sure I'd already commented on your game! But maybe the comment was deleted with an update? (played the version on day 1). I like the concept of your game, the simple graphics and sound. It's very intuitive, and such a cool idea to animate the background like this - looks quite unique! The interactive playful menu is fun. It's not really my kind of game either and I didn't make it to the boss, but I see that the gameplay works and it is definitely convincing. 

Thank you for your feedback, Esmeralda!

Haha yeah, these two-sided texts ...  it's funny getting such ideas just because of playing around with the tool. ;D

Thank you, GlitchyDust! :)

Yes, the environment is rather boring and empty. I think I'll make it even more boring in the next iteration. ;D I'm not a 3D artist and never created a game in 3D before, but I'm interested in playing around with techniques. All but one 3D assets were created in engine, which was ok for this since I didn't want details. I can only recommend trying it, Unity can really be fun, if you like to try this engine, too.

Thank you very much! This kind of impression was what I was hoping for. And you motivated me to develop the game more to strengthen the replayability a bit more. :)

Thank you for your nice comment, Yaz! There are some ideas behind this game and not all of them have been implemented. The technical realization itself was a maze and a-maz-ing for me and I might have gone lost in having fun with programming a bit, instead of creating gameplay elements that make sense. I wanted to leave it to the players what they think while or after playing, therefore the strange questions in the maze. I guess a very very loose inspiration for this was "Sofies World", a philosophical book by Jostein Gaarder. I hope players feel some emotions when experiencing this game, be it fun with the bubbles in the ball pit or being reflective in the rather quiet maze.

The hardest game of this jam! Interesting idea to create a whole scenery out of the ominous symbol. The controls felt sometimes difficult, but I liked the gameplay with manipulating the room itself. A peaceful and quiet game. So peaceful that I don't want to beat it. Nah, honestly, I just haven't found out how to beat it yet. ;)

So many characters, so many locations! The art is adorable and the game much more than I expected for such a short amount of time. The ending was indeed unexpected.

Again a delightful little point & click adventure. I don't want to spoil anything here, but what I liked the most was that you can just say "no" with consequences. And how you used the "dark silhouette" restriction. Funny! The one-room setting works very well and I like the humour. The puzzles seem nice and fair. Writing, graphics and animations have the typical unique quality I had hoped for in this game, and the chosen music is also fine. :)

I love the soundtrack you created for your game! Funny and annoying gameplay, just as the title suggests. Perfect for a small jam entry :)
(Windows and other virus scanners report several trojans in the .exe though, you might want to check that!)

I like the concept and the setting. Nice characterdesign and sounds. The roller-skate animation is funny! What I especially like about this game is how you can change the world in this simple game. The idea is communicated very well. Oh, and I liked that the falling stones also hit the enemies and not only the player character. ;)

Ha, thanks for your feedback! Yeah, cats are tough. :D

Thanks for kicking Powerhoof, Loganou974 :D

Your game is superb and really inspiring!

I haven't developed many games yet, but I would like to contribute what I have:

Some players informed me that they cannot start the game because their browser throws an error.

If your browser (Firefox) gives you this Error:

"Apologies! A fatal error has occured. Aborting. Error: no valid storage adapters found."

This is most likely because your browser or an add-on doesn't accept third party cookies. The server hwcdn.net needs to set a cookie though, otherwise the game doesn't work. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it, so it's your choice if you want to allow that to be able to play the game. Or you can download the game (zip file with the html files) and play it offline.

Such a nice idea again! Lovely :D

Your generators are so entertaining - and sometimes surprising. :D

Nice idea!

Well done :)
