Pretty good roast Sky. It’s interesting to see your take on this since it is very different than the feedback I have been receiving. You feel the puzzles are too easy? That’s possible however I don’t want them to be too difficult for those who are not amazing at puzzles and I have received feedback that they are in a good place, but I’ll tweak with it a bit. I understand the story feeling incoherent since that was my biggest difficulty getting right. No, you shouldn’t be taking the game seriously, no game of mine should be taken that way. Thanks for your honest and lengthy review, I’ll tweak things to the best of my ability and hopefully things will end up meeting your standards. Have a good day :)

The artwork in this game was a really beautiful Steampunk/Dystopian style that I truly enjoyed fully through my playthrough. The music was very fitting as well as the sound effects. The menu however had some clashing styles that I found rather distaste full as well as the HP hud bar was quite annoying at times.
Overall in my opinion 16/20
The battle system in its current state is rather un engaging and boring. I feel that with a bit more content added it could however be a ton of fun. The act of getting the iron ore felt confusing. Why wasn't there an animation of a pickaxe clanking against the stone? It felt like I was just stealing other miners ore.
Overall in my opinion 10/20
The story was relatively engaging however you did you some crutches and some of it seemed forced. As well as having some better NPC dialouge would be nicer. The battles however were completely un engaging and I found myself just aimlessly repeating the same loop of moves.
Overall in my opinion 8/20
This game has a ton of potential. The worl that you made right from the beginning was interesting and grabbed a hold on me. With some more polish your game could be fantastic!
Overall in my opinion 18/20 (Best score so doubled to 36)
Total: 70 /100 (3 stars.)
This game was fantastic. While there are some major issues that need to be addressed, I think this game has a ton of potential and with amazing artstyle it should succeed in a commercial marketplace.
My full video review:
Both of us will stream IGMC entries from time to time. I plan to do more soon!
Tea does full play throughs of IGMC entries with the developers present to comment on aspects of their game!
5/5 this game was absolutely fantastic! The art was top notch, the puzzles difficult but fair and very fun and the storyline interesting! I genuinely hope you win, forget my entry, you deserve it.
Not really. The idea of the jumping puzzle is to hit every platform once without hitting the same one twice while ending on the top so you can jump off. If you do step on the same one twice or jump off the platforms, it will lead to a game over
Well, for one thing you were playing the out of date version that didn’t have any of the bug fixes applied. However, even without these fixes the games play time changes drastically depending on how good you are with puzzles. If your really good at them, like it appears you are, you are going to be the game faster and that is sadly just how it is with puzzle games. Also no, I never had alternative endings, only 2 different sides with either Emi or Sensei Ikuyo where you will get a bit more character building. I didn’t have time to implement alternative endings but, after the jam I will.
The game was pretty enjoyable and the art was very nice. Most annoying thing was how the zombies spawn, since it is random they could just spawn right on you and there is nothing you can do. Also, this game doesn't really have much to expand into and since that's what this years IGMC was all about, finding the next indie hit with room to expand. I'm guessing you will not win. However, it was still a very enjoyable, short and unpolished little game.
I am not 18 years old however I have been creating games for a few years now and feel I have created a decent submission. I have two parents who would be able to supervise the legal process should I win, however I figured I should clarify that the game Aimi No Toroburu is made by a minor. Just was wondering if that within the rules of the competition.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LEAVE FEEDBACK IN THE COMMENTS!
Update 1.1: I have removed all known bugs in the game as well as updated the title screen to be more accurate.
Hello everyone! I didn't originally intend to submit this game to the IGMC 2018 but since I started development while the contest was on going, I made a mad dash to add as much as possible and submit it. The game should run about 30-45 minutes and while it is not an hour, it's polished to about the best I think it can be. There may be bugs, as in most jam submissions. But I hope we can look past the faults and enjoy what is presented. I hope you have a fun time playing, and thanks for checking this game out!
