Hey just played the Updated version of the game and loved it. I only have one "grievance" (if you can really call it that its more of a suggestion i guess idk) is that when a player respawns on the box with the "E" key the box could be facing the opposite way that it was before the crash. So then when you do get up and back on the box you'd go backwards before you realize it. As a game dev myself I have 2 ideas that I'd gladly share here with you. 1. You could create a graphic that can be placed on the box to denote the way the box is facing (Ex. putting something like a "this side up" sign on the back) 2. This one is a little more coding heavy but you could also try tweaking the code of your box movement to move the direction your facing (Ex. regardless of which end is facing forward the "W" and similar input commands will push the box forward with the camera view instead of it being object based. You can still do a reverse with this method). Other then that Its truly an awesome game with a little quirky charm to it. Hope this helps and may you have great success with this project. Cant wait to see how the game ends up .

A very nice stylized game, I know you've said this was a project for a degree program and as a fellow student doing the same I thought i might leave some feedback for improvement nothing crazy but just ideas to sit and think over
1. For the menu options everything doesn't need a confirmation box deleting some of theses from the code like the one for when you die and click restart level we don't need to confirm at that moment because of the only two options we have on that screen.
2. maybe get rid of the health bars over enemies, it can be process intensive on the computer having to check the enemies on screen and do the math in the split seconds while your firing down range
3. The bullet animations, I like the idea of them being tracer like rounds but i think this also maybe adding to the lag the game gives. again going back in line with twos point of lag to produce the visual feedback
Like i said before its a great game, I like the concept and the art style you went with going into the project but I think the stylization came before the games ability to run somewhere in production. It might be simply the stuff I listed above all the code for some of that extra stuff might be bogging down the computer.
Love to see how your work progresses from here mate
let me start off with great game love the concept. Only thing I'm seeing as a i play is when i find a melee weapon to keep and use the name always ends in clone.
Other then that theres sometimes the photos on the wall that are possessed sometimes have a little z clipping action with the wall other then then those two things its a great sound game for it to be in alpha. keep it up
