The cutscene was great, but the actual gameplay was a bit dull. It was still enjoyable, but not for that long

Really nice work on the graphics and sound. The cutscenes were great. The gameplay could use a boost of fun, like an ability instead of just dodging.

Everything was brilliant, except I didn't hear any audio (I didn't rate audio for that reason)

Also, using IE10 x64 if that helps

Super charming, very funny, and challenging gameplay to boot. I felt like the collisions could be a little unfair - I hit a lot of obstacles that it looked like I would miss, and I missed a lot of medkits that I thought I would hit, but seeing the death descriptions for the different obstacles made it less frustrating and more entertaining. The music is inspired, for sure, but unfortunately doesn't loop completely seamlessly - but that's a minor issue. I would have liked some sound effects for hitting the various obstacles and the medkits. The theme is used to great effect. The phone calls from Mom and the cutscenes between levels are great rewards for finishing levels, and the ending is perfect (what a twist!)

Overall, super solid experience. Great work.

Awesome game! So funny and I loved the music\sfx\voice acting :D Sometimes the collisions were a bit unfair, but the cutscenes and jokes were rewarding!

The cutscenes were great and the whole game was nicely polished, I liked the gameplay too but I agree with Jimanzium.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone!

TomboFry (and everyone else playing in IE) - we are aware that there are bugs when playing in IE, and we hope to find some time to try fixing them, but meanwhile (and in general) we strongly recommend to play in a different browser. The game seems to work well in Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

Really crisp clear cutscenes, well polished with good audio and graphics. good sense of humour, the weakest point was the gameplay.

The game looks and sounds great, but the collision detection got a bit sketchy at times, especially once the speed increased. Love it for the opening cutscene more than anything, though!

The cutscenes are amazing!
The game is a bit boring though

Sep 13, 2013 @ 7:42pm

Ah yeah, it's a game in a way...

While the gameplay was fairly basic, the mood, humor, and sound were all amazingly well-done. It's hard to make a game that genuinely makes you laugh and smile, but this one had a lot of those moments. Kudos!

I love the Daniel Clowes look of the cutscenes, as well. Extremely well done.

I agree with Dooleus, especially regarding the hitboxes. Otherwise, 5* for humor!

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.
