The Milu

by ayame9joe - Jam Entry

It is a text-based game, but I'd rather call it short game stories.

The girl and her daddy use a telescope trying to find the milu, but the things they talk about seems to more important.

If Story A is too long and meaningless for you, Story B is more colorful thanks to Humble Ray - that is why I used nearly all animation resource and9 done for me in it.

Thanks to Lieve Oma and Three Fourths Home for inspiration.

Control:

Put Mouse around the telescope to move it.
And click to continue the dialogue.

Bug Warning:

The pictures in the telescope don't work well now.

Where is the room?
It's... in the loading scene?

Excellent graphics, sweet and lovely mood. It's nice to find such interesting, mellow and introspective experiences in a jam.

两个和迷路有关的故事,A的联系更隐患一些,B则更直接一些。A故事总是感觉像是情人或“学长学妹”之间的对话,而不像是父女,时光隧道是指?女孩长大后对父亲的回忆吗?一直追寻着父亲脚步的女孩(但父亲已经不在)?第二个故事理解起来比较直接。互动的部分感觉没有和叙事很好的联系起来。文字写得都挺好的,看完都小感动,会发呆一会儿那种。

Lovely narrative! It's a shame the telescope is on the buggy side, and I think that's why it got stuck for me. I love the graphics, and overall calming atmosphere set by the music.

No you actually can't get stuck in this game... you just need to play longer. But yes, it is buggy... Maybe I'll fixed it this weekend?

很喜欢晓萌姐这种风格的设计,美术很好看。
给我一种OPUS的安心感和文艺感,
抓耳的音乐,以及两个小小的关于成长的故事,对话明显第一个故事写得比第二个好多了(笑
隐喻和小文艺的部分有的,但是第二个故事可能太过着急揭示了。
游戏性部分比较奇怪,大概是循环贴图的地方容易出现BUG——以及寻找的空间太小了,可能有些地方是强制进行的。
但是游戏其实可以做得很完整的~也可以讲述一个常常的故事,
那肯定特别美。
不过没看到rOOM...哈哈哈

Loved the art and the music but the telescope was buggy and I couldn't recognize the theme in the game

Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere with excellent graphics and music. I can ignore the telescope bug by reading the lovely stories. :)

整体来说挺不错的。电子小说是个挺不错的形式。不过游戏整体本身感觉有点卡,移动镜头的部分好像也容易出现问题,不知道是不是我个人会遇到的。就我个人来说,如果不是对体验又什么帮助的话,其实可以考虑不要这部分gameplay,全力把演出做好?

The artwork in this is very nice, and it has a very relaxing feel to it. Unfortunately the translation is holding it back for me: There was a line near the start of the English version which hadn't been translated, and there were quite a few strange word choices (can't say I've ever heard someone use the phrase "a fit of pique" before). I wish I was able to play it in the original language; I don't think I was able to appreciate the effort that went into the writing having only played the translation.

挺喜欢讲故事的游戏(但是貌似我更喜欢看致郁的故事哈哈。。),游戏画面风格很棒
望远镜移动时画面切换有一些割裂,不知道是不是我一个人有这个问题
