I love the ending! Writing was neat, but the words were all jambled in the dialogue due to my screen size. Good game and idea though.

Great idea and I didn't expect that twist at the end. Nice work. I respect games that attempt to be just a little more than a game :)

Interesting idea. I liked what you did with the ending. As someone else said, the UI bunched up at smaller resolutions.

At first I thought...Ok, another judging game, bla bla, but that ending surprised me. Good job on that idea guys! After reading the full story of each one I think I made the correct decisions hehe. I had to mute that clock, it was making me feel nervous LOL. Keep going!

That game is amazing! I loved the ending I wasn't expecting that. I also liked the atmosphere the clock gave to the hole game. Really nice take on the theme. Keep up the good work!

Kinda depressing game but somehow interesting. At bit offensive and sloppy when it comes to the finale but the judging somehow works. Thanks

Nice work. I wondered about the ticking clock at first and why it wasn't actually running out, but I felt the pressure nonetheless... good trick. The judging and question asking was interesting, I just wish the question-asking interface was better (text-wrapping) and I could better understand when a question was asked and that the question was "used up".
I started to feel it was getting pretty preachy there in the end but concluding with each character's more detailed story did cause me to reflect on my choices and view of the individual during the brief conversation we had before judgment.

Very nice idea. I like this kind of games, sending somone to hell is harder than i thought. The texts you used should be disabled or should be hidden i was confused and tried to use them tweice. but yeah good game.

Good job!

Really liked the game, the end was a great twist :D

Neat concept! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/-i4m-nVpQ4M
