A very interesting premise.

JoshuaStone responds:


I think it has potential.

JoshuaStone responds:

Thanks! :)

A nice and simple game. I love the idea behind the story. I do wish it was longer.

JoshuaStone responds:

Hey thanks, glad you like it! It was definitely an interesting outcome from the game jam, having to make it in 3 days. Initially planned it to me significantly longer but had to cut things out for the sake of making the deadline. :P

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... :)
