WARNING: Depressing stuff!

IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm okay!

I wanted to try out some text effect techniques and they turned out the be quite okay. I've uploaded project file as part of the submission if anybody wants to take a look at it. This took me like 3h to smash together, including art, music, code and story... pretty much everything!

    It was good entry, can't say much to not spoil others.

    Tässä oli hyvä tulkinta teemasta.

      Thanks for giving it a go and I'm glad you liked the idea! It was kinda "last minute inspiration".

    I would have liked some choice or interaction to make it more like dialogue. Mission accomplished for 3 hours though. Only spent 10 or so on mine, I like the challenge of participating and doing what I can with the time I have. Good on ya.

      Thanks for playing! I had some plans, but then I didn't have enough time. Spending one more hour and I would've been able to add more dialogue and maybe one or two "yes/no"-choices, which would've guided the story a bit more unique way.

    I actually really like this one. Short, well written, good use of sound design. Nice job.

      Thank you! On a second thought, I could've used 1 more hour to create at least one "yes/no"-dialog box to give it actual game-feel, but oh well, works as it is!

      I'm glad that you enjoyed! I didn't even consider how scary it would be that late. :D

    It's not really a game, but okay.

    So that's a neat and interesating little game. You say visual novels have more content, but I think there is something else. You see, with words you can draw on the readers emotions to fill in the cracks. Their lives and their experiences bring content to the scene you never knew existed. You don't need fancy graphics or million dollar budgets to make someone feel, and feeling is what drives memory.

    Awesome work for 3 hours, and the sound effects were on point!

      Cheers! I could've added few extra lines as now it feels like it ends a bit too fast, but I like how it turned out nevertheless!
