Yes, the lack of a menu is a bit annoying. But, you know: time constraints.
Have you tried Alt + F4?
It was the best jam experience I've ever had. I remember lurking on notch's twitch channel while he was working on his entry "Last Minute Christmas Chopping".
I've had few happier moments in my life than these 48h home alone. And sadly, jamming never was this way again. I guess that's how you get used to happiness. I've learned to appreciate being content since then.
Oh, hello again,
thank you for your kind words and for the time you spent with GRAIL. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. This one means a lot to me. It was the first jam game I ever made. Every time I see someone playing it I remember that I intended to make it into a longer experience. I still think I should...
Also, nice playthrough you did there :)
thank you for checking out and recommending this old piece of mine. I forget about it sometimes, and seeing that it still manages to catch someone's attention -- even for a short while -- feels comforting and encouraging. Your oppinion in particular means a lot to me.
P.S.: Sorry that our glitch demon startled you. But it's the only purpose it has in its exsistence, and I'd hate to take that away from it.
Thank you :)
Ralf and I were talking about extending the game to something bigger a couple of times. But we couldn't find the time to elaborate on it, yet. Y'know, life always gets in the way ;)
Thank you for that review. I agree, It is very bleak. But it's just one narrow view on the subject.
I didn't expect anyone to play the thing longer than maybe four or five cycles, let alone until day 31. You earned my respect for that.
Thanks! The prototype is quite rough. It's very probable you encounter problems with the doors. We were planning on expanding on the concept. But for now, we both are occupied with other projects.
Thank you for playing and for your very kind comment on our game :)
It's always very gratifying to hear back from players, even more so when being able to actually see them play the game.
Thank you so much :)
The GameJam version won't get any updates. But I was talking about a new game based on this one with my partner (more features, replayability, more complex mechanics etc.). Unfortunatelly, we are both deeply involved in other projects, so it's to early for announcements.
