Too slow at the beginning, specially if you cant read French

Ce jeu est vraiment cool, je me suis bien amusé. Même si au out de plusieurs essais je savais quel objet employé, étant donné qu'il fallait utilisé celui qui était déjà présent pour ce personnage à la partie d'avant. J'ai aussi trouvé la façon dont s'affiche le texte un peu désagréable. Mais j'ai beaucoup rigolé, merci :)

Très original comme interprétation du thème et rigolo. Et merci pour la version française : je ne serais pas allé jusqu'au bout en anglais.

I love it, I had lot of fun trying to figure out what object could be the best. I think I did a perfect on my first try and was very pleased to see that the game change on eveyr new try. Well done !

Bon petit jeu textuel :) C'est bien écrit et tourné avec humour. Cela dit l'absence de version en anglais est un peu dommage pour une game jam internationale. Peut être vaut-il mieux proposer une version même en anglais approximatif plutôt qu'en français? Bon boulot sinon!

Très drôle =) Quelques problèmes d'affichage rendent le jeu injouable sur safari.. J'aime bien l'ambiance et les quelques references et blagues.. le chasseur est cool. mais il faut vraiment le sortir en anglais dés le depart.

Thank's all (merci!)
English version coming very soon.... !
(@monetai: il faudra que je jette un œil là-dessus, pourtant j'ai l'impression de n'avoir utilisé que du css de base...
Le choix était difficile de ne pas avoir de version anglaise mais je n'aurai pas pu faire quoi que ce soit en anglais vu le temps que j'avais...)

C'est plutôt drôle. En tout cas c'est une interprétation sympathique du theme de cette jam. Il y a pas mal de situation ce qui est bien.

Funny. Good interpretation of this gamejam theme. There are a lot of choice and situation, that's good.

Un petit jeu sympa et plein d'humour :)
Par contre le son est ultra fort, surtout qu'on l'entend tout le temps ^^

Funny text adventure with a little twist!

I only got fired because I didn't fully understand what to do even with the English version, but I just have to mention that the screenshot above is basically Zemus's (from Final Fantasy 4/II) janitor brother or something along those lines. see http://www.finalfantasy500.com/500/charimagessz/zemus3.jpg
Not sure if that was intentional, but it's funny. Nice!

Plutôt sympa et original ! J'aime beaucoup l'idée de base. Par contre je ne comprends pas comment je pouvais choisir adéquatement l'objet à utiliser, bien souvent la manière dont il s'en sert est tirée par les cheveux et je ne pouvais pas prédire ce qu'il allait en faire... Les sons sont un peu agaçants aussi je trouve.
À part ça, très bon travail !

A little bit too noisy sound of the text but game is nice

J'ai souvent fait des choix au hasard mais cela était probablement prévu.
J'ai bien aimé les différent résultat que l'on pouvait obtenir. Très bien écrit!

Fantastic story telling! The plot and subjects seem innocent enough but there's something quite unsettling about the whole thing :} Marvellous.

I wasn't sure exactly what was going on at first, but once I got it the game became a lot of fun.

Apart from the text being a bit fast and hard to read when scrolling, this is a good effort. Original premise and unique presentation (and SPOILER - nice twist)

Well done! Very clever the way the clues are laced in there.

Nice writing.

Sep 8, 2015 @ 8:22pm

I was somewhat confused as to what was going on when I was trying to pick a costume.

Nice concept though, and I love that you managed to get it translated to English :)

Nice take on the theme! Thanks for doing an English version.

I still think it was a bit too much text at times. A lot of things could have been said in less words I guess. This didn't make the game unplayable or unbearable by any means, though.

I was sadly unsuccessful in creating a costume, but that's because I fail at doing good choices in life I guess, haha.

Anyway, despite my failure as a professional monster cosplayer, I liked the game a lot. Good job!

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
