Last year I returned to my hometown to bring my cat of 13 years to Berlin. Shortly after the pandemic and lockdown began. I wasn't able to pinpoint what I felt exactly; everything felt surreal. It was a mess, out of control. Toilet paper was running out in the supermarket, misinformation was everywhere and people were panicking. Could you have imagined such a thing before 2020? People were shut up at home, shops closed down, some temporarily, some for good. The streets were quiet for a while, with people out only for their necessary shopping and apparently church (???). At first people didn’t take it seriously, got caught out and fined for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Seeing how world governments were mishandling the situation, the spreading sense of dread, the growing backlash and developing conspiracy theories, it was clear that this would be for the long haul. Unable to have fun outside, to engage with people actively and socially, I instead spent a year learning to make a game from scratch. With some help from my partner and my friends, it's finally done!
I liked the game so much! I gotta say that my favourite thing were the sprites and all the scenary in general. The game is sooo pretty! <3
Can't say much about the history because i haven't been able to do more than 1 ending... but so far it's good! I liked so much the plot twists and the things that happens in the church are just -cheff kiss-
My partner and I played 30 minutes of the game and will finish it soon. I have to say that this game is oozing with style. We both love everything from the art, the music, and the characters. Don't know how this will end but it has us hook. We both seen your painting and happy that your style looks great as a game. Looking forward to future games you make!
Dear Joysugamu, what an adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed this game but that door puzzle, it brought me to my knees, it nearly made me rage quit, it inspired a very long rant (it also let me overcomplicate things and solve something that wasn’t even needed). If you ever watch my Playthrough, don’t stop when I get cranky because after my 5-minute rant you managed to reel me in within SECONDS with that formidable ending, that blessed, visually striking ending. Bravo.
You know, it's quite rare that developers immediately listen to feedback and change things, so this is amazing on your part, thank you on behalf of other overthinkers :D Also, I hope to see further games by you, I loved the whole package (visuals, gameplay, story and music).
This is a really well-made game, I can tell there was a lot of effort put into it. Unique story and twists that are somewhat unforeseeable. The music and pixilated style was also very beautiful. Great job!
Jumping in with praise mirroring previous comments. Lovely game, a very relatable setting (given the lockdowns in so many places), and a surprising twist which... let's just say, it amplifies my preference for dogs over cats. :) Jcat is adorable nonetheless.
Just figured it out with the help of a hex editor and examining the level data file! The interactable part of the element that contains the cord only covers a tiny portion of said element, you might want to take a look at it and expand it to cover the entire thing.
Hey! The song isn't in anywhere else yet, my friend Andy composed and performed the song, he gonna make a bandcamp and put the song there I will let you know while I have the link asap. Thanks for playing the game :D!!!
Very fun point and click adventure! I didn’t expect the twists toward the end. This game had some good humor to it! I love the art style and the color palette was very appealing as well. The music was also well done! The puzzles and choices associated with them felt like they required some good amount of thinking and were rewarding to solve.
It would be nice if there was a message to let you know how to save and load the game near the beginning. Especially since the choices made seem to matter a lot! I learned about being able to save the game the hard way, only after beating the game. T_T It wasn’t too long of a trek back once you know what to do though.
Hey Wow! Thank you for your play through and suggestion! I really enjoyed your commentary a lots! We definitely will take note for the "save game" part! Will make it clearer for the save and load in the next build!
