Oh...crud. (Spoilers below...)
Was your mother(?) trying to brainwash you in the end?
I've seen Manly play this, and I have to say, this game is pretty neat. I do have a few criticisms, though.
1. Some segments feel like they have repetitive dialogue, such as the paper minigame. A suggestion would be rather them him saying "Why did you flip the paper?" over and over in a neutral tone, why not have him slowly get more visibly frustrated with every time you flip it over?
2. The commercial/we'll be right back segments were my least favorite part of the game. Something about how they stick out from the retro aesthetic of most of the game combined with how they somehow use Itchy & Scratchy footage with a filter over it threw me off.
I don't understand the ending. Did he kill himself, or did he go mad he started to have hallucinations about joining his sons in hell?
Edit: Or a combination of both where he kills himself in madness and he has dying visions of hell, where he can finally reunite with his two sons even though in reality there's only going to be a dark void awaiting him...poor guy.
Here's one thing I want to ask; can you put a mature content/18+ warning, please? I didn't expect to see any nudity in this, but I'm used to seeing 18+ games here marked as adult so this is probably just a nitpick.
Thank you! And this is much more of a nitpick from a fire alpaca user, but on the title screen the text used in "Dream of Gluttony" is anti aliased while everything else is not (pixel art style). It looks weird to me. (Look those up if you don't know what it means!)
Hello! From what I've seen of this game, I'd like to give a review:
At first, it's promising. You meet a guy, you either make friends or just get an ending from walking away, you get along...
And then it starts to go downhill.
After it turns out he uses blood as red paint (how scary) it becomes a cookie-cutter yandere story. And that's my main problem with this game; it brings nothing new to the table. The worst part is the main character; for example, he licks one of his knives at one point. That didn't make me creeped out, it made me groan because it's too cliche.
Now, I'll cut you some slack; this is your first game, and we all have to start somewhere, so don't take this like I'm hating on you. I'm just tired of the same types of yandere stories that don't bring anything new.
I hope you continue making games in the future, however! :D
