this is thread for players to write about their impressions of the game!

what did you like? (́◉◞౪◟◉‵)

what did you not like?  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

what names and hobbies did you write down?

I liked the game. It was short, but nice. Playing it gave me this weird self-hate/insecurity vibe when I got lazy and input stuff actually related to me, but the dialogue never made it a serious discomfort. I love the second running of a new game where everything is darker and stuff.

I tried to get all the endings and is there no happy end? Where moron decides they should just be happy and leave?I got the Significantly Sadder, Mildly Mortified, and an AKA you're Shrek.

One thing I did dislike was how some of the new dialogue things fit into the conversation awkwardly.

Developer

Hello JigokuShoujosRevenge!

thanks for the feedback! it will help us avoid making the same mistakes on the next projects! 👌👌👌👌

There's a certain dialogue at the end that concludes the game, you can find it when given the last choice on the third play through, make sure to choose the second option! (psst it's the one that starts with "at this point")

I hope you like the last ending "true beauty" when you get to it 😆 any comments on that as well are very welcome :D thank you for taking the time to play it!

I'm not sure what you mean. I've played the game on like 5 different runs making different choices on each, but I never got a dialogue option like that.

Developer

oh? that's weird o_o what is the maximum number of beauty points did you get at any point while playing?

once you get 20+ points, you should finish the play through, and after the credits, click on "new game" again, there will be a third play through with some other choices that will lead you to the final ending!

Do you get any kinds of errors while playing?

No. And I got a lot of beauty points. So much so, I was confused as to what they were for. Maybe I'll redownload the game and see if that helps.

Developer

No need to redownload the game! just open the main menu, go to Preferences, and click "Reset" it should ask you if you're sure about erasing the saved data, click OK. The game gives you the last ending only if you unlocked both the first and second (Mildly Mortified, and Significantly Sadder) the Shrek phrase is just an easter egg that shows up whenever you choose to have green skin XD

maybe try having less than 20 points the first run (choose reasonable choices) and when you get the first ending "Mildly Mortified" play again and aim for the highest points (the shrek one will boost you significantly, it adds like 50 points lmao) you should get the second ending "Significantly Sadder" after that just start a new game and the third run of the game should start!

try not to use the Load feature at all, maybe the system messes up the points accumulated if you do idk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I hope this is helping, this is out first game and i'm glad you're letting us help you through it ^^

You were right. Resetting and not loading anything got me to a third route with a dingier room. Thanks. And to test a bit after a playthrough, I loaded it again where I saved in the 3rd run and some answers were missing and after it sent me back to the 2nd run.

Developer

Oho! there's that pesky third ending!

thank you for testing it out and having patience ^^ i hope you had fun!

how many beauty points did you accumulate in the end? XD

I can't find the third ending no matter what!!! Please help me TT I keep getting "Significantly sadder" and I haven't loaded after resetting, I even reset it 3 times after getting the dark and scary music room each time, I just can't get it, please help!!!

hello raelubsfoxes!

the way to get the third ending is to start off with reasonable answers and get less than 20 beauty points!

after that aim for the more ridiculous choices (new ones will appear!) until you get Ending2: Significantly Sadder, it needs more than 20 points, so if you got it on your first run through you might need to reset and fight the urge to have more treatments xD

sorry about the troublesome method, that's how the game was programmed ;-;

the first ending is Mildly Mortified (less than 20 points )

the second ending Significaly Sadder (over 20 points)

The third ending (after getting end 1 and 2) and going though some of the new choices!

after getting both endings you can start a new game and you'll be on the third and last run, and depending on your choices you will find the last ending ^^

The problem is that I've already tried that method twiceand it doesn't work! I guess it can't be helped, I just wanted to see what the last ending qas like ;;

Developer

hello again!

we might have to go back and revise the way the endings are calculated so players don't end up stuck like you did ;-; but in the meantime, we'd like to learn more about why it's not working for you so we can avoid it in future projects!

make sure you have the most recent build (1.1) and then try these steps in order and see if you still can't get the third ending:

1- double click the game icon, on the main menu screen go to the main menu item labeled "Preferences", go to "Reset" and click "Really Reset" for the confirmation page. It will tell you that all progress has been erased.

2- go back to the main menu and select New Game. play the first run through, try to end up with less than 20 points by choosing normal requests, such as straight hair and fixing teeth, it will tell you at the end how many points you got.

3- select New Game and play again, the scene should be slightly darker and the music slower. this time try to get more points (it will add up with the points you got on your previous gameplay) you should end up with more than 20 points this time. (hint: choosing to change your skin color will skyrocket your points)

4- select New Game again, and you should be on the third play through. it will look significantly more ominous and the music more creepy, this is the third and last play through. in the end you will get two choices, one starts with YES and the other with something else, choose the YES and you will be on the route to the third ending.

please understand this game was done in a game jam, so less than 10 days was spent on it lmao, we're glad more people are playing it now so we can learn from our mistakes ^^

I really enjoyed playing this game! I thought the doctor looked a bit sketchy at first heh heh

I was a bit spooked when he remembered my choices, but that's actually really cool! Kudos to you on that.

Overall, it was a really great game! Thanks for publishing this.

Developer

Thank you very much for playing and commenting, so glad you had fun! 😂

i loved this game!   i just played it a week or two ago, so here goes...

what i liked: the sarcasm of the surgeon, overall message, the changes in the scenery the more you visited (pretty unsettling)

what i didn't like: i was expecting more horror, which i guess is a good thing because i wasn't covering my eyes after my first playthrough even though i did feel like something was genuinely off about the whole ordeal (mood done right!)

names and hobbies: i just kept changing the name to silly things people have mistaken my name for.  i think i put crocheting as hobby?

Developer

haha thank you for playing ashifer!

the horror tag was added even though it's mild was because some players expressed discomfort at the blood and overall claustrophobic feel of the last play through XD

i'm glad you had fun playing, thank you for the clear feedback!

Hello! I really like the game you made and I decided to create an account here just to say it.

I like the fact that the game has a small number of images but you get involved and start to see differences in the face of the doctor though it didn't really change  :D

And you masterfully led the main idea through all the routes. I don't know, probably, it's made like this but I've got endings just as they go according to the number (1,2,3) and the connection of all of them creates a special feeling. I think I can relate to the main character and that is why the third route ending really touched me and I dropped a few tears (no joking).

But there was one thing that made me laugh it was the doctor's words about that I always changed my name when coming to him. But I didn't really :)

I can say your game is one of the best short games of this kind because it evokes feelings and thoughts, it's well-balanced and leaves an amazing impression. This game is just great, thank you!

Developer

hello Evlora! 

thank you so much for the nice comment, it's an honor and a great compliment when someone creates a user in a site just to add a comment to something they enjoyed :D thank you very much!

haha not changing your name was a great move, at least you won against the doctor in SOMEthing! 

I just finished playing the game and getting all the endings, and I have to say that I love it. It's such a deep game, even with it's shortness. I like how the final ending goes and the weight of your choices being questioned to make you think about your choices. The art is lovely, and the menu is simple but very well designed. I kind of with there were more to the game, just because it's that interesting.

Developer

Hello IllumiPy! 

thank you very much for the encouraging comment ;w;

we're glad you had fun playing, it makes the stress of the limited time of the jam well worth the effort XD
