You should work on this idea, it has potential.

JoshuaStone responds:

Yeah, probably. I'm definitely planning on doing another game that's at least in a similar style sometime in the future.

The concept isn't original, the game is short, but for what it's worth - a game made in 72 hours by one person - salute!

The ending, as another guy said was quite too happy and anticlimactic, as a storytelling game you should have thought how to make your story different from Black Mirror and similar films, books, etc.

On the gameplay, I guess you already know that it's quite lacking the interactivity of a wide game, but I don't care much about it, as for it's more about the story than the interactivity of it.

So that's why I gave you a solid rate, which I think it should get for what the game worth, but consider making it longer and wider maybe by routes branching out.

JoshuaStone responds:

Thank you for playing, I'm glad you liked it overall! I agree the ending is little anticlimactic, that part was rushed the most, unfortunately. :P

So I definitely want to do a lot more in the next game I do in this style. And I think I know what it'll be... :)

This is a bad game, This is probably one of the worst games I have ever played.

- It may LOOK like this game is turning into a horror game, but it is not.
-This game is X5 short and boring more than Rotate.
-You could have make this game even better,
Since you probably started creating it at the summer so you probably had a lot of free time to spend on developing this game,
But instead you probably did too many other things at the same days,
Which kinda limits the time you have to make a new game.

It's not like I hate you right now, I just don't like this game, That's it.

Thank you for understanding.

JoshuaStone responds:

I understand your points, but this was made in a weekend—everything was very rushed. :P

I'll definitely be making a proper game that builds on the style of this one, though!

That ending, 'I've changed my mind'
I thought the doctor would just turn it back on and send you back.
You should make this longer.... I would play it....
If you made a whole story of this and put it on Steam it would probably sell well...
Love it...

JoshuaStone responds:

Hey, glad you enjoyed it! I'm guessing the technician probably doesn't know what's going on inside the Paradise. ^^

I definitely want to make a larger game in this style, maybe even in this world! Not sure at the moment, but it would be interesting to make!

If this was an hour or two, I'd probably enjoy it more. Too short, but it's probably because it's a jam game. You should expand on the idea.

JoshuaStone responds:

Thank you for playing! The next game I make like this will definitely be longer, with choices and such.
