You should definitely never worry about whether or not your art is too simple. It really isn't! :)

i'm still figuring out where this goes. i've stopped for a bit. i have to finish the two other games i'm almost done with first. stupid wandering attention..

This is wonderful! The art, the characters the dialogue. Truly something special.

The art is fantastic. It conveys so much with so little. Just look at those boots! Wonderful little story. I love it.

such a beautiful experience. this is going to stay with me a while. so good. 

seriously. this is the most charming thing i've played in ages. it's just so good. i can't stop humming the music either.

those footprints!!! wow. also... the baba yaga... shudder

awww! that was so rad.

loved it! it completely pulled me in. then creeped me out :D

Well, I'm a massive EB fan and... I love this. I really do. I'm going back to bobbing my head up and down to the music now. 

So happy about this extension! It's been an impossible month and I almost had to withdrew. Thanks so much.

I hope I can release something worthwhile! This month has been a nightmare :( 
Love the idea though so I will finish it even if I can't right now. Hope things are going well on your side

Rad! Can't wait to play it.

Very interesting things you're drawing inspiration from. I'm hoping a little bit of weirdness creeps in from the Lynch side of things!

I've finally sussed it out. I think. No idea if it actually shows up anywhere though.

Suddenly decided on mini chapters. So here are some screenshots of the start. Not final. But I like the idea so I'm running with it

Nice! I'm not sure how long mine's going to be. I spent too long plotting the story. And I don't even have an ending yet! 

I was actually wondering how you do a devlog on itch. Never even clicked that this is the way. Thanks!

Really hope it can find some new life. Love the concept of it but I'm not good enough to use it yet :(

Your excitement is infectious! Very interested to see what you'll put together. 

Also love that this is a whole month long. Though for me this allows more time to work on the story. Wish I could animate sigh. One day.

Exactly.

And unintentionally stumbling onto a defining moment is probably my favourite thing about writing. 

Sometimes I like to create a mockup like this to remind myself of the tone I'm going for :)

Very interesting. Looking forward to playing this as well.

I have no idea how you're doing this but I beg of you, never stop.

I'm already loving the sound of this.

That makes two of us. I just wrote it down as I thought of it. Then today I started working on the story and thought @#%!... now how do I make this work? 

Rad! Good to have another Twine user on board :)

Hello, hello. I'm Plim, a freelance writer and independent filmmaker. I'm currently trying to build a soulslike in Twine but I love noir so I want take some time off from that to see if I can make something interesting for this jam.

The Burning Heart, is an interactive story featuring Solomon Todd, a detective on the brink of retirement who has been forced to take a leave of absence after a case goes terribly wrong. Solomon drives into the countryside to clear his head. After a long day of driving he checks into The Golden Pine, a small motel in the heart of the forest. It soon becomes clear that something is off. A fellow lodger is found murdered, her body nailed to a tree. 

Someone has woven wildflowers between her toes and carved a strange message into her ribs.

“The owls are watching, the fox is starving, the bear is sleeping, and the beast is hunting.”

If you like Southern Gothic then you neeeeeeeeeeeed to watch True Detective season 1. It was fantastic. The pessimistic philosophy stuff was also incredibly intriguing. though I didn't know it was called that at the time. I'm so excited for season 2 because they've gone back to what made it great in the first place and I can't wait to see how Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff act this out. (not that I can remember seeing Dorff in anything since Blade :/ )

I don't remember much about Lux-Pain to be honest, except that it didn't grab me. But that's not important. Stop reading this. Right now. Drop everything. Ignore everyone you pass. Go home. Watch Mulholland Drive!

Kafka on the shore was the first Murakami I ever read. Such an amazing book made even weirder by the fact that I had just moved to Taiwan at that time. Made the whole experience even more surreal. I worship Twine Peaks and pretty much anything Lynch has ever done. But wow. Lux -Pain. I remember that game! Really need to revisit that. 

Something I really want to pilfer from for this jam is Southern Gothic. That made the first True Detective for me. Could go very well with a bit of Angel Heart. 

love Murakami's Hard Boiled Wonderland and The End of the World. Which is probably why I love the idea of this jam! I'm curious about what noir works people here are going to draw inspiration from.

For me it's going to be Inherent Vice. There's just something about that film.  "Inherent Vice is a postcard of the sun going down on California." Someone, somewhere, once said that and the image just stuck with me.

Very fun little game. The platforming feel is nice and weighty as well which is great! Now if only I didn't suck at outrunning psychotically spiked walls...

Take your time! I think this will be great if you nail what you're going for. Looking forward to finding out more about the story as well. 

Looks so rad! Can't wait to see where this goes :)

Oh god my head came off! Very cool and so slick!

No worries at all. I'm still getting used to using itchio myself so I totally get it. And of course life and that ever-present rent factor is alsways breathing down my neck as well :)

Thank you so much! Getting to that ending gave me such headaches as the deadline approached. I admit that at the start it was totally just going to be about someone getting eaten. Then  as I wrote it kind of just took on a life of its own. The fact that you found it mysterious and ambiguous makes me so happy!

The font thing could be because it is an unusual one. I think it defaults to a certain font if the one you used isn't a standard font that most people have. Read something like that somewhere a while back. Might be wrong of course!

Good idea! I'll be waiting to see what you do with it. And goodluck with the votes!

First of all... Dodocan is awesome! I totally understand. We did a jam too and ran out of time. It always feels like there's more time... and then it's gone. I enjoyed the dialogue but I think it could be pushed even further. At first I didn't realise that I had to press a button to get dodocan to return and I was imagining him (her? who knows) slacking off somewhere which made me laugh as well. 

Thanks for responding and you can add another dodocan fan to the list :)
