Has Wonderful Potential
I love the concept at play here, especially because it makes the player venture into the unknown through a pov that many of us will never have to experience. I hope that you continue on this because I think it has the makings of a truly fantastic game. The music and attention to sound is a beautiful touch as well. I would advise that you maybe revise the description at the end because there’s a typo (an extra “life” is in there) and also to say it’s from the pov of a man in an authoritarian society who is trying to escape his life by ending it sort of sounds like he’s trying to hurt himself and several of the people who I had recommended this game to were really put off by the suicidal vibes of the description. Also, the pacing is a bit uneven, he gets through the city so quickly and there’s an opportunity to incorporate more events within his journey getting out of the precinct. Otherwise I think you’ve got something extremely special here, and I would love to see it flourish into a full on game that includes what happens beyond that door.
awesome concept, could be better with some character insight
The audio, the plot- overall it’s an awesome piece of work. A more expressive voice would definitely help out to make it even better than it is! Since this is a game reliant on our hearing and touch, a very important part is to listen to our protagonist’s voice so we can understand the plot and know what tasks to complete. I just feel like if there was some work on the voice acting, it’d make the game feel all the more immersive. Personally, I found the protagonist’s voice kind of... dull? Even though he’s endured the living hell of an oppressive government that stripped him of his sight, throughout the story he seems tired. Bored, almost. The tiredness could probably stem from him “giving up on the world” kinda schtick, but a protagonist with some more personality would get me more emotionally invested.
The concept and gameplay is definitely one of a kind, so it’s not expected for this to be a masterpiece. I think it’s pretty good. I especially liked the part where you had to walk towards the water drops. Even though the voice acting wasn’t the best, I applaud whoever was in charge of the sound effects and editing! Y’all did awesome.
All in all, this game is worth playing if you have 10 minutes to spare. This game was truly a piece of art.
Overall an amazing game.
I feel like this game is truly awesome. For me, it was calming and really was cool that this game was all about sound and touch but not sight. I have never seen a game like this and this it has a lot of potential. I feel like it could be longer, though. I feel like this ended too soon and left without any closure. This game could have gone into more detail of the setting and characters and what happened before where we jump in. This game is definitely worth downloading, but i would really appreciate it if the creator would update it to make it more understandable and longer. I don’t say this as negative but more as constructive thoughts to work on. I have seen a lot of others also say pretty close to my review and i think everyone would be happy if it were to be worked on. So, once again, I truly loved the game and would totally suggest it to everyone.
