I appreciate that you think I have the patience to hand animate something like that but God no, that's a shader doing work haha! I also have a soft spot for those graceful bees ;)

Haha it absolutely is sometimes correct to eat the neighbour - depends on if there's a story out there about someone else eating human and falling ill... ;) And that's incredibly kind of you to say, I'm blown away by the fact that people are actually enjoying it!
Awesome! Very glad you had a good time even without the nostalgia element. I am all too aware that the Ceefax style can be a liiiiiitle painful on the eyes if you're seeing it for the first time. Filling out the channels was always what excited me about the idea the most, I'm definitely a writer before a programmer ha! Thanks for the kinds words :)
Also, very interesting to see your approach to the game. The best way to play is making a list of the food and eliminating each food item from clues throughout the game which is obviously a slow one. You saw a lot of clues and almost made the right choice but restarting the game meant resetting what was safe unfortunately haha. Great video though, very genuine voiceover!
Haha very glad it surprised you! From what I understand you're not the first person to jump straight to feeding their kids the neighbour either ;)
I'm really glad you enjoyed it, and especially happy that it surprised you!
I too run as fast as I can from my problems
Nice simple execution, and satisfying quick gameplay - well done! I share the other comentors view on differentiating zombies, but this is an impressive demo for a jam!
This is a really solid start, and the direction you were going with is clear. I really enjoyed it :)
It's good that you're self aware of taking on a big idea though haha. I look forward to seeing how much you'll be able to polish a smaller on based on how much you did of this!
This feels like a fever dream in all the right ways haha
It's definitely a great start, and I agree with making the visual design a little more consistent but all in all this was a really positive experience for me - great work!
This is a really beautiful start, man. Strangely makes me think of Ecco the Dolphin for some reason haha
I can see this building into something really cool though. Bosses would be a great addition - germs that send out spores and you have to attack several parts of it before it dies
Oh man, as much as this is an unplayable prototype, there's a lot going on that I'm loving the direction for
Firstly, the art direction so far is baller. The rat card is beautiful and the overall aesthetics could build into something great
Then the combo of Reigns and Plague Inc. has so much potential for micro and macro decision making. I can already imagine having seperate decision trees for each continent and making decisions that will help one but screw over the other
This idea is obviously pretty big which I'm sure you know. I look forward to seeing what you do with it!
Ahh thank you so much! I really appreciate the kind words, and that you enjoyed it. I knew I had to fill this bad boy to the brim with content to sell the concept as best I could so I did what I had to do
Very fair constructive criticism too, sound is still something I'm dipping my toes in with game design in general so I will take that on board for the next one
Haha I can't argue with the eyecancer element. As in your face as the visuals for Ceefax were, they have such a strangely calming feeling to them for me. Maybe it's nostalgia? Maybe it's my brain slowly shutting down because of the intense colours? We'll never know...
Glad you enjoyed it!
This is a great start man! I can imagine it building out to become something like the Warioware Touched fly minigame with a bit of work and polish
Keep going on game dev, I look forward to seeing where you go with your ideas :)
This is a really neat idea but a little too difficult as it stands. Slowing down the rate of infection and having green houses that you've already discovered turn yellow if the infection passes them would really help
Lots of scope for this to be a really fun little minesweeper-esque game, nicely done! :)
The aesthetic and theming of this game is top notch man, nice work. The amount of stuff going on is slightly overwhelming but I guess reasonable given that you're overseeing a global pandemic haha
