Oíche Mhaith (pronouced "Ee-ha why") is a short game by Increpare and I.
I can't really describe how I'm feeling right now.
This game made me think, even after playing it. It's message is obvious, and watching this story is like getting the message hammered into your head with a sledgehammer. The music fits the scenes very nicely, the only thing I can complain about is the annoying sound effect you hear while changing the room.
I could say a thousand words about what I like and what I don't like about this game, but let me reduce it to this:
Thank you. This game was beautiful in a horrible way.
When i saw the irish name i had to see what this game was like :D and im glad i did, good job!!
Really liked the game. I wanted a litttle bit more of story but good game.
I could tell right from the get go this was not going to be a happy story, the dialogue, the scenes, even the colours told us that something was wrong. I especially remember the hallway in most 8-bit games halls are complete removed from most buildings but your dark gray gloomy hall made for an excellent transmission between scenes.
I have to say the parents were just so horribly mean even after they die the second time. I mean usually an apology means that you recognize your fault (which in the parents case was mistreating their daughter) but here immediately after apologizing the parents turn around rejoice at meeting with their son and say "finally our family is complete" once again completely ignoring their daughter. That just pissed me off!
Perhaps in your next game you might make it a bit more complicated to solve. It was interesting to see the different mix-ups you could make but it would be nice for a few more options also a replay button would make seeing different options easier.
P.S - What happened to the little girl????
Scene and atmosphere - 5/5
