i loved the storyline , and i love these point and click games
Very good, cannot wait to see the next episode
This is an exceptional point and click adventure game. It is unfortunate that you had to cut the game short due to size constraints. However, if you are outputting this quality work, they might be able to make an exception for you. I have seen entries that are far inferior that were 15+ Megs. However, I don't know who you would need to talk to, I only know that it can be done.
As for the game, the overlay does not really go with the music. While it is a great overlay for old and scary games, the music and gameplay do not really coincide with the overall theme. The music is too pristine and bouncy to be of any contribution (think of off-keyed and slower tempo clown music), and there is nothing in the gameplay that would give you the shivers. The jack-o-lantern gave me the impression that you were trying to make a scary game. With traditional point and click games, there are two basic options, jump and and scare and the classic thats just wrong scary. This is a more of an adventure game than a scary game, but it is still one of the better point and click games that I have played.
Also, the font is a little hard to read. Especially the one in red. Maybe a border can be added? The choices you have are also hard to figure out. The dark red/light red scheme is difficult to see. A better choice would be completely changing the color when the mouse hovers over a choice. Spacing them out a little more can also achieve this goal.
Thanks for the feedback, I"ll try to do better next time. Tom offered to give me more space, but I want other sites to host the game too, and most of them use a 10 meg limit. I wasn't going for scary at all, I don' t make 'scary' games, I just try to set mood and create atmosphere. Some people said Alice is Dead was scary, but we weren't making horror games, we were just telling a story we wanted to tell, if it was also scary, cool. :P Thanks a million!
very good enjoyed but...
good work mate loved alice is dead ending to it bugged me though this one though liking the start of it, found quite easy to find all object and figure the nails ot bit confused that you couldnt open the mast bedroom, but all in all good start room for improving though loving the art work as usual, a sugestion though when looking for an object " sparrow's egg " give a hint in the books to know where to look, put something down the well you know that type of stuff, would be good to collect books on the type of people you meet too like the alchemist or the weather mage. im not trying to annoy you just hoping this give you more ideas and improve so you creat a truelly awesome game, hope this helps will be looking forward to episode 2 and further coming games. GOOD JOB :)
Thanks for the thoughtful and detailed feedback!
Love this one. Alice was also great
It cannot open.Is that a bug or it's my computer's fault?
