[Unfinished Game]

My first game for Ludum, A puzzle game.

Help humans to become citizen.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

It's an interesting little puzzle game. I like some of the sound effects and the out-of-fire animation sequence.
Some suggestions: you should add some visual indicators for when you can complete the level and if you are carrying wool or not. Possibly even a clearer warning when your fire is low - it could even effect the brightness in general.
Some bugs: If I go right in between two rocks I can both push and drag them both at the same time.
After the out of fire animation plays for the first time, it no longer plays for subsequent times. Going out of fire more than once results in a blank white screen that will still be deactivated by spamming left/right.

Some thoughts:
Sometimes the physics for moving the rocks around could be a little finicky.
Overall, I didn't get to the end of the game because I started to get really annoyed with how slow I felt like I was moving and the rocks wouldn't always move the way I wanted to and the level I stopped on was so massive. Up until that point I thought that the puzzle solving element was kind of fun.

Some questions:
Why do I have to press control to sheer the sheep, but not have to press control to clothe someone? I feel like this should be consistent especially as I was getting worried that it might matter who you clothe since some of them can die.
what is the point of the fire if the gameplay revolves around moving rocks and putting wool on people? Both of which would likely be harder while carrying a lit torch.

Its fairly decent so far considering the time constraint, but it could be a pretty good game if you continue to work on it, which I hope you do.
Not bad for your first LD, I hope that my feedback will help you improve it

It begins quite nice - at least everything works in first level. Then it starts getting weird - every time when I have to "educate" people (this little fire making minigame) the screen is white (I can still pass it though). Then the level starts again - it's impossible to go further and the fire-making minigame appears out of nowhere (still white screen).
I don't get it, but something clearly doesn't work.
