Interesting, I can finished it (It have a final?), also the game is inmersive, you can increase the visual quality if you use a reflection probe, the scene will looks better, trust me, and only use real-time lighting (not baked), the candles colud have realtime shadows, and with it the game will increase the visual quality (the games looks good, I just tell it to you just for make it look better). Good job.

I have a lot of comments after playing this game. I hope these are helpful to you. First of all, let me say that I think you set the mood of this mystery quite well with the music and color scheme. However, due to a lot of problems with game mechanics, and decisions, the game is far from playable, or enjoyable. Looking around the room, I am able to interact with almost everything from where I stand, this cuts my enthusiasm to move around the room and explore. The waiting time when examining objects is annoying and pointless, could have been much better if things were clickable? Or maybe we are just tied to the chair in the beginning so we actually cannot move and that's why we are examining everything by just hovering over them? That would make much more sense with the current mechanics. This for me is a poor game design decision. Assuming that you are able examine an object, the text that appears is too fast, does not stop animating, starts over and over again, and has a very elaborate hard to read font. I was not able to read most of the text you prepared because of that. I do not also understand the randomness of the text box behavior. While this text animation keeps on happening, no idea how to get out of that window and move on. With all these in mind, the look and feel of the game is still very promising. Therefore, I wish there was the graphics category when voting for this game. Even though you pulled the models from the internet, I still think the paintings are of good quality. I think there's a lot of potential here, that's why I wanted to write a detailed feedback for you. Hope this is helpful for all of you.

Also, the Web link is a download link,so it is a bit misleading for everybody who wants to play it.

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.
