Great job on this game! This is way better than my first game. I really love the mechanics with the grappling hook, it's very unique and cute. Great job on this, and I hope you keep making games!

This was an absolutely incredible experience. The pixel art is amazing, and the music was perfect too. Everything really helped to set the tone of the game, and I was immediately sucked into the dystopian future. I was a little confused about the message part, and I was panicked from the police, so I ended up with "F*ck. Type Message and Press [Enter]" (The instructions were still there - maybe a bug?) Overall, this game is amazing. The art, music, animations, story; everything perfectly fit the theme and created an atmosphere. I felt very emotionally involved in the character(s) even though I was just introduced, and when the police came I felt a bit of panic and hopelessness. This is really amazing! Great job :)
They've spent a lot of hard work and money making it, they are completely within their right to charge money for it. The version that is on itch.io is an early prototype to test player reactions to the game. You did not 'pay' for it. You voluntarily donated money to the creators. £20 is not an insane amount of money. Just because they're not handing you something (that cost money for them to make) for free does not mean they are treating you 'like shit'.
That's awesome to hear!
It's actually a recreation of a game called 'Ballz' from Ketchapp (who I'm sure got the idea from someone else) that was super popular around April 2017. I recreated it to better my game development skills.
This game is rad.
I love when games have a surreal vibe, and I love all of the effort and details you've put into this game. Rather than have a boring health bar, you have the screen tilt, the light shrink, and the music play slower. There's so many little details and cool stuff in this and I can tell you're very talented and that you put work into this. I strive to be as good of a game developer as you one day.
By the way, you can use resource hacker to change the icon of the program, so that it's not the default love one. (You won't have to do it from the code, either). It also has a command utility that can be automated. I use a custom-made batch script that builds the game, and uses resource hacker to change the icon and add version info.
This story is cool! Like some other people said, the text appears too slowly. I'm a fast reader, and I basically had to read the line, wait, read the line, etc. I understand the dramatic timing, though, so maybe it could be an option? Other than that, very nice job.
As far as my side of things, my game is a prototype really, but I am definitely not walking away from it. I'm trying to actively work on it, and plan on adding a lot more as time goes on. I just didn't have enough time to finish it in one month.
This game is awesome! I love the visuals, especially the lighting and shadows, and those particles falling down. The music fits very nicely and is very relaxing and pleasing to listen to. I had a bit of trouble with the movement at first, but I ended up getting the hang of it. Nice job!
