For Ludum Mini-Dare 20, with the theme "Greed."
Frightening, but poorly conveyed.
Honestly, the concept of this game did not appeal to me at all, but at the same time I had that, "I must go on" feeling. The ending pretty much horrified me and I almost want to go back to see what would happen if I had lost at the end, but I'm still frightened by the thought of it, maybe later XD
I don't agree with people marking low due to no story, which in a sense it has none, it was more of the feeling, though I could be completely missing the storyline myself, I just don't think it really needs one.
The damn thing is still confusing me, I thought it was something about cancer at first, then a parasite, and at the end I had absolutely no idea what was going on, just that I in no way liked it or wanted the answer.
I'm a horrible critic so I'm giving you a six :P and though I think the idea of it was great, it would be far better if you could improve the graphics a little and make it a bit more like a game then... whatever that happened to be.
For everyone who voted a really low score because of something like "I don't get it, you didn't spoon-feed me thoughts." Learn to think for yourselves, people. Anyway, the idea behind it is pretty insane, in a good way; I would truly be lying if I said otherwise. Except for the last part is kind of an example of too much too quickly. Was completely unprepared, and I really can't bring myself to play it again -_-
But, down to the low score. It was not because of the ending.
The message here is weak for a reason already stated by Milskidasith: real art conveys a message far better than pixel "art."
The story? Not all that intriguing. A real life phenomenon given pixel graphics and a strange winged insect(?) that shares it's morbid hatred with you. And speaks with horrible grammar at times.
The gameplay could have been a saving grace, but all this game had was a horror factor.
Call me a snot nosed critic who has no idea what I'm talking about, but this really isn't much of a game. It would be an interesting movie, if you could get away from pixels, but as it stands, it just isn't good.
it's only worth three stars.. but i gave this a 0
Not worth being called a game
I adore artistic games as much as the next person, I really do. They're some of my favourite kinds. This, however, was nowhere near artistic, nor a game. It was an interactive video at best, with almost no story what-so-ever.
It had a decent concept going for it, had you made it far, far more intricate, with a real story, rather than a select few words thrown together here and there. And gameplay that added to the story, drawing you into the potential artistic aspect.
As it stands, I can't rate this well, and I am sorry for that. I try to be fair.
Sound 0/10 : It was really just annoying, had you worked at it, it could've added to the game.
Music 0/10 : Same as sound.
Story 0/10 : You really did ruin any potential it may have had.
Gameplay 0/10 : What gameplay?
Overall 0/10 : Like I said, if you'd spent some real effort into, it could've been great. But, you didn't bother trying.
Really cool game!
I like that it kinda has a moral to it, and how it ends with just a red screen. It's the one kind of game that starts out innocent and gets meaningful. Good job, Austin. Good job.
The sequel to "Outpost:Haven"
