A twist, a twist, another twist

The animation was wonderfully detailed, the story was simple if a little predictable, the voice acting was simply excellent, and the overall production was fantastic. I wish to know the secrets to your animation. Truly a production deserving of the front page.

I wanna hear axman13's review of this

Excellent use of typography, excellent voice, not much to say about this but awesome

I think I voiced too many characters XD

Not a bad production, though there could be a lot more variety, it's kind of weird hearing my own voice. I probably should have tried varying my voice a little more, but that's okay :) great production, I hope to see more soon!

Love this game so much, the gamefeel is awesome. I can't believe how long I've been playing it.

Far from perfect though. My biggest complaint is that there's no way to know how close you are to 100%. A way to keep track of items dropped or maybe a beastiary (like a lot of people are suggesting) that showed which monsters drop what would be really helpful and would add a lot of replayability to the game

ShadowWhoWalks responds:

There are couple of drops and secrets that can only be encountered through sheer luck. I didn't think it through when I implemented them. Will include an item guide when I can.

I absolutely loved The Company of Myself, and I must say this is a wonderful prequel. The story is very engaging, and the puzzles are well designed. The puzzles are fairly intuitive, and I'm glad that you trusted your audience to be smart enough not to include a tutorial at every single step (although for some places like the rain it might have been useful to get a hint).

The visual style works well. There is a very nice variety in the levels and I never got bored of any one particular set.

The one thing that bothered me about the puzzles, and Company of Myself suffers from the same problem, is that sometimes certain elements will be used only a few times (for example, the rain) and so learning the mechanic was a waste of time.

The story overall is well paced, but in some parts it felt a little slow, and I found myself missing parts because I was progressing through the level too quickly. The dialogue was very lengthy but not very engaging. Perhaps something like voices could help players in that sense.

Finally, I absolutely loved the character development and ultimately the tie to The Company of Myself. A wonderful payoff, and a great game overall

FreeAsANerd responds:

Thanks for writing!

Voice acting wasn't really possible for this game. There are more than 700 lines of dialogue and the swf is already close to 15MB with all the sounds and art assets...so it would have gotten pretty rough.

Interesting Story wrapped around a tedious game

I know the story is good because I want more. I look forward to seeing the next chapter. The story makes a great foundation for this game.

The puzzles weren't very intuitive, and I solved most of them systematically rather than following the clues. I was disappointed that there were only a few puzzles before the game fell into a straight shot to the end. They were well designed puzzles, though they could have been better incorporated into the story.

The music was top-notch and fit the atmosphere of the game. I may be a little biased since I am a huge fan of Hania's work. No criticism on the use of music.

The game comes nicely together with its aesthetics. The minimalistic noir style snugly accommodates the story. It is very crisp and consistent throughout the game.

Overall a good game, though I couldn't play it again. I do look forward to Chapter 2 though

A simple smile

A boy awaits on the eve of valentines day to confess to a girl. It is late in the afternoon on a school day, and almost everyone has left the school. The girl is about to leave too. As she gets him, he beckons her back. He hasn't yet mustered up enough courage to say anything, so all he does is hand her the valentines, knowing it's a day early. In returns, he gets a hug and a smile. A simple smile, but one that made waiting worth it.

This is an absolutely beautiful piece of music. I don't really have much more to say about it. The simplicity makes it, it sets the perfect mood for a nice scene, and overall is just amazing.

MarkySpark responds:

Thanks for listening and the great story.

This sounds like it belongs in a movie

And that movie would win 5 stars for soundtrack from the most acclaimed critics.

This is a beautiful and epic piece, really creates an amazing atmosphere. There is great use of harmony and texture. It feel like I'm watching an epic movie when I listen to this.

It's very hard to get tired of this track. It's just simply marvelous from start to finish

Setu-Firestorm responds:

Thank you. I appreciate it! =)

Beautiful is the only way to describe this

Beautiful. simply beautiful. There is no other way to describe this. The melody and harmony create such a soothing and almost melancholic atmosphere that relaxes the spirit. Great job
