I love your stuff though sometimes it's too difficult for me. I'm happy you're back to making games, can't wait to see what you come up with!

Great little metroidyoshia

The "don't play" button is a groundbreaking innovation, also fun game I guess.

Jay this is beautiful and very relevant to what I was planning to do with my friends this weekend, you mage!

This is inspiring, at the table this would inspire dramatic sacrifices, chase scenes, fight scenes, daring escapes, in so few words too! Thank you for this.

I love this. I'm inspired by this. Thank you.

The ending gave me a bit of friction, so I'm interested in what you'll grow it into. Other than that, this was delightful and right up my alley! Thank you!

Got me into the flow so hard. Did not expect.

What is it with this guy and pigs at weddings?

Tight and evocative. I can see myself using this along with any other game or as a standalone game just as easily. Kudos. I'm inspired.

I thought this would be a less grim counterpart to Libellus Lunae. Quite the opposite. Turns out the sun wants life and gold molten in its name and is a jealous master.

Mankinis

Or like a hose, RP'ing as a dead horse.

Exquisite Horpse

The first PbtA game that made me super excited to play a particular progression of playbooks.

This might be the first Mosaic Strict I'm super excited to play with at an actual table.

Feels so witchy.  The imagery it conjures is very primal and visceral.

It's refreshing in that it doesn't focus on how the spells empower the mage, but how they bind them to the sky and make them weirder. The Lunomancer is not a moon-power exploiter. They're a servant to the moon. The hand of a powerful sky being.

I don't know if I'll ever get to play with it, but just reading it I felt very inspired.

Fun fact: "idman" is an Arabic loanword in Turkish which means "training"

Thanks! I recently found out about the Gauntlet community, looking forward to check this out.

Thanks! Glad you like it.

I didn't really get it at first, but the example set it up perfectly for me. This seems very elegant and exciting. Looking forward to using this approach in future micro-RPGs.

Oh I didn't play yet, but I've bookmarked it to present it this weekend to a game dev community to familiarize them with the weird design moves that are being done by so many awesome designers (such as yourself)

I'd add Fate/Fudge dice under the "You will need" section.

I rejec!

This game gets you into the flow, Success never sounded more satisfying.

Amazing. Couldn't wrap my head around the level design, but it got me in the zone. I'm curious about the secrets too. Thanks for a great game!

It was fun.

Manama namaah bamabaah daah!

I've actually designed tutorial levels for each enemy which we'll be implementing soon and we're working on more distinguishable visuals too. Feel free to check back in over the weekend.

Thanks for playing and commenting!

Thanks for playing, glad you liked it.

We're currently working on ways to distinguish stuff better, so feel free to check back in over the weekend.

I don't get what the developer wanted this game to feel like. The mechanics are well implemented and the game looks and sounds good, but there's no sense of agency, The player does nothing, other than spam z/x, and maybe turn if they can see where they teleported before they're shot. Enemies don't telegraph and there's no way to predict teleportation so luck greatly outweighs any player action.

Perhaps a bit too great for a jam game, in terms of scale. With all those resources and mechanics to keep track of... I'm curious as to what all these nice-looking systems could look like with some playtesting and balancing, maybe keeping the effect of luck in check. I ran out of bullets and ran into a few combat encounters and died of running away within 4 encounters of starting.

The sights and the sounds are absolutely on point though.

This is a downright good puzzle that I couldn't quite figure out at first, but trying sure is fun.

These games ended up so similarly in such subtle ways that I'm totally astonished.

Hey, do you like grid-based puzzles that involve enemies that can detect you, with annoying boxes you can move only one way which may end up blocking your path? Then check out "He Detec!"

Jokes aside, this was brilliant and fun to play. We accidentally made cousin games. Now our fates are bound for all eternity

This is an amazing drift-racing toy that takes up the perfect amount of time each time you play with it. For me, finding the right strat to get my initial ~80% up to 95% was fun, even though I had the pedal to the metal at each incredibly wide turn so I did not improbe in terms of driving skills. This game leaves you room to grow even after the third playthrough. Kudos.

Also, from one punslinger to another, great game name. Which one came first, the idea or the design?

I designed the levels to make sure the players can grasp the basic instructions before moving on to more complex levels. We might expand the levels to add more challenging ones though, so stay tuned. Thanks for the comment.

As soon as we settled on the concept of "old-timey mystery novel detective" I thought "HARPSICHORD!", and I'm not even sure it's era appropriate. Just that its old-timey, snobby Europeanness would work in this setting. As a team, we're impressed with Kardelen's audio work as much as the audience is. There's a link to her itch page on the game page, so maybe check out her other work?

We have heard a lot of feedback when it comes to distinguishing sprites and objects and the character and we're working on it, so feel free to check back in soon. Thanks for the comment!

Thank you for the insightful comment! We haven't stopped working om the game, so feel free to check back in next week.

The resolution limit was a challenge in terms of text, so we put the instructions on the game page.

The reason we limited Sokoban retries was adding flavor to the challenge. You don't need a perfect solution to get a clue, and trying to figure the "whodunnit" part with clues of lesser "quality" is part of that zest. I'm glad it made you feel differently about approaching the puzzles, and hope you didn't find it frustrating.

But the clues, suspect info and which suspect is the killer changes each time, so playing it a few times until you figure out the puzzles is always an option. Maybe we could communicate that better going forward.

I think I have a sense with what might feel wrong. This is a precision-heavy platformer, so it's very important that (i) I can trust the info on the screen and (ii) the character completely stops moving when there's no input. At the 2nd level after the tutorial where there are singular blocks to dash over, the character slid down from the corner of a block several times. Spike hitboxes felt bigger than spikes looked, while borders of the blocks felt smaller than they looke.
