Pretty cool soundtrack, very ambient. Gameplay is indeed rubbish :D

Music and atmosphere are awesome. I got minus thousands of score.

You know, actually, the gameplay's not that bad. As a mood/experience type of game this is kinda cool. The graphics and the sound and the germs... it's like an OCD sim.

Pretty sound and Sfx, i don't understand what to do, though :)

The sounds is pritty neat, but the game itself is not so cool, i didn't really get what to do, though the music did fit well, even know i wasn't sure what to do ;p

Very nicely put together! More time needed on the game part, obviously, but it has a great feel to it. Loved the weird flickery organic-ness to it.

Beautiful atmosphere and music. That was a really engaging experience. Though as you said yourself, gameplay was a little odd! I did enjoy all of the ambient elements though.

Really nice entry!

Beautiful graphics, audio and mood. But, I did not understand what i had to do with gameplay.

I love the visuals and the background music, they really set you in a desperate, sad mood.
The gameplay is rubbish though, but you said that, too.

You managed to get a cool vibe going but the gameplay could be a bit more compelling.

I told you on irc i've got -4000 xDD but it's quite interesting! i love the effects! :)

LOL my score was like -OVER 9000!! weird game indeed.. But great music/graphics/mood.

Very hypnotic experience. In the end I felt kind of sorry for the slime molds - I mean, they seemed lonely and just wanted to be together, right? - so I left them to it... And left the music playing in the background. :)

Loved the melancholic mood. Sound and music are awesome and I also liked gfxs. Unfortunately there is not much gameplay there although i'm sure it has potential to be expanded into a full fledged game.

I music and the graphical effect are really nice, good job! The gameplay though, well I didn't quite understand what I could do that actually affected anything.

This has a lot of personality, I really liked it.

I think that your game would definitely benefit from a game over, since we're trying to stop something from happening (rather than, say, reach a goal).

Like you said yourself, though, beautiful graphics and sound. Let's all vote high for mood!

Really good music and graphics, but was there something to actually do in this game ? I started to click and drag to push the slime molds.. and then just stop to see if if was doing anything, that didn't happen, so I quit. Nice to see something that beautiful, though !

Beautiful music and creepy mood, the flickering and other lighting effects really added to that too! I wasn't too sure about the gameplay... didn't feel like I was making much of an impression on the molds. ^_^

Still, it's an interesting experience.

Yeah, you set an amazing mood in this game! The graphical style and the audio go together fantastically well. Very nice ambiance. A new gameplay concept (you ARE the slime mold... slime mold tower defense... tower climb on slime molds...) and you'll have something really noteworthy here.

There's not much I can add that hasn't been already covered by the other comments. You did an amazing job with the graphics and sound, but there's not much of a game here.

Amazing ambient music, I really loved it =). I can clearly see this game working on a touch screen device with a little bit of work, good job.

Great music, interesting experience, lacking gameplay.

May 12, 2012 @ 7:28pm

Audio, Graphics, Theme and Mood get top marks! Seriously awesome art game
