Reviews for "Vernacular"

I enjoyed this. It's nice to see something different on Newgrounds.

The presentation of the story and the way in which the player is made to interact with the game was definitely interesting. I can't say it was a total success but with some tweaking I think it could be great.

There are some major issues that need to be worked through.

-I don't like that I have to click and drag the very bottom of the polaroids to navigate and often it doesn't work properly.

-Not a fan of how I can't interact with certain polaroids until completely unrelated conditions have been fulfilled.

-Perhaps I missed the hint but I'm stumped on how one is supposed to figure out how to meet the specific conditions in order to get the item from the painting polaroid. I'm on the fence about whether to call this bad game design because hey, I'll admit it's possible it flew right over my head. Still, even watching a walkthrough I'm uncertain how I'm supposed to work it out.

-Story could use some more development. Was just a tad disappointed by it.

Anyway, the atmosphere here is fantastic and the minimalist art is great. A lot of thought was clearly put into this. Well done.

This is a really good idea, with more work on it it would be a really nice game. The ending was disappointing, it made the game irrelevant since there was no story involved. Still, it was entertaining, I hope to play a better version of this game soon.

I love the wavy effect, is very creepy!. I think this game is kinda hard though, but an original way to tell a story

What do I do?? There's a creepy man standing in the room with a severed hand. I'm busy painting a picture and now I'm lost. arg

i love the concept but i dont understand how to play.
