I'm disappointed, but I realize you guys have the final say here and have every right to do this. Likewise I really appreciate that Shacknews is putting money up for gamejams and will definitely still participate so long as those new rules are put into action.
Let's see if the cheaters win next time!
Weren't Leap of Faith and Why You Do This to Me disqualified on the stream? The former asks for payment or makes you watch ads. The latter has blatant vote manipulation; just look at the age of all the accounts that commented on it and the number of votes compared to the other games.
Thanks for trying it out! I definitely was trying to keep the art style and music lighthearted given the inherit grim nature of the concept. A game show framing could totally work towards that as well!
Psh, nothing but pure objective truth here ;)
Thanks for the feedback, do you think it would play better if it started out slower (more time) and gradually increased in speed up to the current speed?
In a classic "trolley problem" situation you are often incentivized to go the utilitarian route and choose what appears to benefit the most people overall. My argument is that there's just way too much unknown context to make a sound choice, and I'm showing that here by having half the info reveal only afterwards. Whether that's an argument for or against utilitarianism though I couldn't tell you ;)
Thanks so much for playing and rating it! I totally agree about the mp potential, could be very interesting to see more objective statistics.
I like the general style of the models, but the environment just felt odd to me because it was repeated the exact same way. Also I died in one hit to the policeman; maybe that should happen after 3-5 hits. The bat animation was good and I would play more of this if there was more stuff to bash up!
The story and world are intriguing; you know I love an rpg where you have to consider the moral implications of your actions! ;)
I did encounter a bug where the cave would remain dark, but after reloading it worked correctly. Also I would have liked for the mobs in the starting side of the cave to be easier so you have to rely less on luck to level up and make it safely through. Alternatively you could have a starting area with mobs that are easy to train up on.
Hope you expand on this world some more in the future!
Downloaded the game and played a couple rounds but then it asked me to watch an ad or pay $1 to continue playing. The art style is nice and the app itself seems very polished, but a game jam submission shouldn't have ads or a paywall.
Love the pixel art and concept. I would have liked some music/sfx and the ability to zoom out with the scroll wheel. This could be a really neat populous-style god game where you control the weather entirely, maybe flooding or choking entire river systems based on rainfall.
Hope you continue working on it!
I really liked the animation that plays out when youg et the sword, and the chest innkeeper was pretty funny. The game could really benefit from some music and sfx, but this was a great submission!
Great concept, I'd love to see you expand and continue working on this game!
I think it could greatly benefit from sound effects when hovering over and selecting UI elements, as well as from a tutorial explaining the mana mechanic. One of the better submissions for sure though!
Hey, not sure if you meant to set a price but that will get you disqualified from the jam. you need to ensure it's available for free during the jam so everyone can rate it.
Other than that, congrats on completing your game!!
I tried it out a few times but around halfway through people would always start disappearing or falling apart when I talked to them. It was hilarious but do you have any tips to avoid that?
Despite that this is probably my favorite of the bunch for its surreal tone and dialogue. It's right up my alley and I had a ton of fun reading everything. Keep up the great work!
There's a great foundation here, it really just needs a more definitive goal. Maybe even just some sound effects and a "Level 2" popup when you collect all the gems would do the trick. Pixel art looked awesome with the filter effect!
I also couldn't really get the game to work as you had intended. The most I got was an ability to fly around the samurai mode, which was nice because you crafted a beautiful cyberpunk cityscape. The glitches almost contribute to that aesthetic, honestly really interesting!
