Cool thingy. The cutscenes felt a bit too random to
me, but I liked them. Also the overall puzzle, means collecting
the batteries was fun. Dialogues were done really well: no gameplay
interruption and minimum HUD.
I think it would be cool if you
could also pick up objects with a mouse click and not just with a
keypress. I liked the radio "secret" and would like to have
more stuff like that. Also in the outside world. You know I
would like to pick up the fake cars and throw them around....yeah
would be a different game i guess. Sorry ;-)
After the first
"death" the girl could maybe ask herself something like
"Wah..? What did happen?"
Is ist also correct, that I still have the radio after I died? ...and when I replay I would like to be able to skip the cutscenes.
Keep on! I'm interested on what is coming next :-)
Nice! I loved how the cutscenes play. About the gameplay, I just think that the level design of the first level( the collectable key ones from the first demo) was much more enjoyable than the battery one. Idk, it just felt different to me, maybe I would be more confortable with shorter levels with a proper gameover idk. I really liked it nevertheless. The anime op and ending was genius. And I really like the world you created! Are you going to put together all episodes into a full game someday?
Hey thanks for the kind words first of all. :) I do see what you mean and I admit it is an interesting point of view. It was a bit easier to find yourself around, right? I tried to compensate for that with differently colored areas. Maybe I need a few more unique things in each path to make it more clearer?
Yes absolutely. In the end I will combine all episodes into a full game. Though I want to keep the episodic nature to give the impression of an actual Anime TV series. :D
I will keep following the project and see how it's going to evolve! The end monster reminded me of Mimi from Super Paper Mario and the main char reminded me of Mischief Makers mc. And also that giant blueish head that appeared at the corridor was totally unexpected :O
Thank you. :)
I had a lot of different inspirations for this. Mishief Makers was one of them though. As well as Mega Man Legends, Dr. Slump and a few others. Had to look up Mimi, nut totally get what you mean haha. :D
The blue head is actually story relevant, believe it or not. :)
