Escape from Space Cannibal

by ondrew - 48 Hour Competition Entry

The game is largely unfinished - there is no real gameplay to speak of.

However there is
- 3D engine written from scratch rendering in HTML5 Canvas
- motion capture from Kinect used for the characters (although it doesn't look like it) :)

Not much of a game here. While the kinect mocap technology is impressive, I would have liked something to inter act with. Even press space to advance the dialog would have been an improvement.

I would've liked to have seen the interaction with the Kinect. And while I understand you didn't have time to implement any gameplay or anything, I still have to rate you low in those areas. Very innovative though!

Nicely animated-- but there wasn't a whole lot else to it.

Framerate bizarrely choppy - fast for a second then stalled every second or so. And it took forever for a character to even cross the screen. Nice to see Kinect used in LD though! Maybe for the next one you could do something that would really show off a variety of animations, like a fighting game?

aw, I was looking forward to figuring out how to free them.. seems like maybe you didn't get to finish the ending? I really enjoyed the conversations though :)

A look at your timelapse confirmed what I suspected: you spent all your time with the mo-cap animation! It's cool though :)

While the motion capture is interesting, having no interaction at all doesn't really qualify this as a game. I would have much rather like to see this in the jam but playable.

Sadly I can't watch the timelapse due to german restrictions. Still points for that.
Weird "game". Dunno what to say about it because it is far away from finished.
