Aaron and Alex

by Robert - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Two brothers make somewhat snarky comments as you try to solve Alex's puzzles. Aaron could care less. You travel on a rail and try to keep enough walkways while solving puzzles to remove roadblocks.

Voice is hilarious!(Is it kind of troll? lol) Pleasant sound and neat graphics.
But I have no idea about typing. I typed 'build', but nothing happened and bumped.

Ahaha, this is really fun :D Nice polish, love the stair effect you use. Might have been nice if it had gotten increasingly harder rather than just ending though.

I like the game but the capsule should have been something else and you would have nailed the theme and graphics. Voice acting was nice. It's creative feedback but i relay enjoyed it.

I think that was good, but I'm not sure. Is good bad? Or is bad bad? The voices confuse me!

Hi, here is some feedback.
What I loved :
- atmosphere (strange world)
- sounds and music
- well introduced
What imo could be improved :
- relation to the theme
- random key combinaison to allow replaying
- the end (it just tells you game over suddently, you could add some "Congratulations" to let the player know he beat the game)

Nice overall, thanks for the game !

I noticed that the pieces left counter doesn't reset when you restart. I assume that's unintentional.

The sound is really great, (it sounds likes Ghinzu...without rock guitar obviously).

PS : there are a little bug loop when you loose at the first word to write.

i knew this was 5 star audio as soon as my like game was done downloading or whatever.

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone. I fixed the crashing bug where if you run out of walkways and hit a wall it won't let you play anymore. This also fixes the problem of running out of walkways.

Don't forget to hit spacebar to jump. The end of the game is not the "Aaron Alex" typing puzzle. It's after the 8 arrow puzzle after "asynchronous".

The other bugs remain because they fall out of the LD crashfix rule, such as not being able to hear Alex's defense of "oh come on, you got to get into a good company"

Haha that was very amusing! Fits theme well.

Loved the music and voices. Took me a second to figure out exactly how to play (even with the instructions).

Absolutely loved the Timelapse. It's great to get a "behind the scenes" peek and learn about tools that others are using as part of their work. I'll definitely be looking into GameAnalytics and finally putting my free Trello account to use. :)

P.S. My game link had died and you were kind enough to point it out. Thanks! It's since been fixed.

It was weird, but I found it pleasing nonetheless :)

Nice work man, I enjoyed this game.

Very interesting game. The part of typing remembers me the game "The Typing of the Dead". Congratz!

Pretty cool. Personally I would prefer a slightly faster, more intense pace to the game, but it's very enjoyable as it is.
The voices are really great!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
