Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Pixies Hide and Seek

by Kalkatos - Jam Entry

Play Hide and Seek with the pixies!

Click on an object to look for a pixie behind it.

============================

Some considerations to be made:

I missed the line for compo, submitting to Jam instead. Kinda lost a lot of time on the art piece of the background, but I think it is good for my current skill set.

I changed the style of play after doing all the art assets. Previously, the camera was more close, now it is too far away, so the characters and objects became in extremely low resolution, that is a huge con...

Overall, a lot of lessons learned, as always.

@kalkatos

============================

Edit 1: Thanks for everyone's feedback. The mechanic that a lot of people described (hints to find the pixies) will be added in future updates. I had planned it since the beginning but didn't had the time to implement it. As I said, the art piece of the bg took a lot of time to be finished.

Nice graphics and sound. If you're going to polish the mechanics I'll advice to give player a little more information, so he can search pixie more knowingly. But really cute.

Neat game. Music really fits the game. Graphics are nice but it kinda feels like the objects are on a background instead of in the scene.

very cute! Maybe have a highlight on the bottles?

Graphics, music and the feel are the hignlights of the game. There is not much of the gameplay but I can imagine this game for young girls. Just let them click trhough various items to find pixies and they might be satisfied. Wow everytime I comment on the neat game I think to myself: Such a shame there is only One room :D

Got 'em :P. Some thoughts: the game aspect of it could be improved. Right now it seems like you randomly select objects and hope for a fairy, but it might be nice to have some rhyme or reason to it (some sort of visual cues?). Fits the theme well. Art is great.

The art is fantastic and the audio works very well with it, but there isn't much of a game to go with it.

Well done game! Graphics and sound worked well together and the whole thing was well polished.

A very beautiful game artistically, I think it could be a good educational game with some additional things. Very good game, good work.

I really like the art of the game. The scene of the room is cute! Congratulations! I found all pixies! ^^

It looked really pretty and the music sounded great, however it turned into just clicking on random stuff till you click on the right one. A bit more style than substance. What you could have done is allow the player to get info beforehand or little hint. Add a bit of challenge.

Great art, mate! The game is very polished for a jam one! I guess the game feeling is not very present tho.. All I did was click everything the fastest I could.. Maybe a logic behind the spawns, a way to build a strategy and to let the player improve himself would fit well. Great entry!

That's so cute! Very nice little sound effects when peeking behind things (tho perhaps just a tad sharp against the background music, some of them, but eh, details!).

Graphics and music are very nice. The room is a work of art, of course. Has a lot of character to it. And it was fun that I got to select a pixie!

I guess the only real piece of criticism that I can offer is that it was a bit, well, easy? p: I basically just clicked everything until I found all of the pixies. But it sets a nice mood and it was a slightly "zen" experience while it lasted!

Nice and relaxing even as a 24 year old male aha. Looks great and I was happy to keep playing. Could be cool if the items did more things when you clicked them, or they were a bit more hidden so you had to really spot them? Just some thoughts anywho, good job!

Really nice art and music! The gameplay could do with having a bit more to it though. Maybe you could only have a certain number of failures allowed, and some sort of ambiguous clues to follow regarding the pixie locations...

Neat aesthetics. The concept is quite intersting and pretty well executed and polish so it's fun to play.

The music is soothing, the graphics are nice to just look, and the whole experience is very relaxing. Looking forward to see how will the guidance mechanic work. Maybe some rough indication of distance to the nearest pixie, like getting hotter/colder? :)
Great work on what it is in any case!

The game graphic is really bealtiful and has a good mood while finding out the fairy pixies, i ust think a lose condition was missing here (like a time left to find all pixies, per example) even so, good game, really enjoyed it!

Fun little game, very short as there isn't much gameplay, graphics seemed nice and music & sound fit well.

Dec 23, 2016 @ 6:04pm

Nice visuals and audio :) Too bad there isn't much gameplay as it's just clicking on all objects. Still, you did a good job, especially with tha background. Well done!
