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.

Sitting here, thinking. The VN!

by TrashLord - Compo Entry

I'm almostly sure that it is a shortest visual novel with ideas and decisions!

The story is as old as the world: you're sitting, thinking, dreaming.
Nothing special. Nothing non-special. Just nothing.

Archive contains source code and executables for different operating systems.
Made with GIMP and Ren'Py.

P.S. I'm not fast enough to devise a good idea and develop it in 2 days. Sorry

Python support is required.

I dont know if its just me, but the game had a long start up time. I had to wait 2~3 minutes after clicking it for anything to open, but that was on windows.

It was an interesting development in story and mood, and the fire especially was impacting given recent events, but the lack of gameplay and control over anything makes it hard to really like. Great interface and tools though! I like the history function.

Nice mood, even using those simple graphics. Just needs some more game-play elements. Well done for completing something in 48 hours!

Nice mood and melancolic atmosphere. I like the setting of the story, being stuck in the prison and just facing your own memories. Sometimes the grammar was a bit off, but it wasn't unsettling. Pretty good textual game overall, backed by some simple nice art. Cheers

Pretty cool stuff. I actually really liked this. A spot of soft audio could add a lot of atmosphere/

I have to 100% agree with MrEvilGuy. Your game has a lot of potential and implementing a little bit more story and some more things to interact on (Maybe axamining some things or so) could improve it by a lot.

Took a long time to start up and didn't seem that interesting, I see a lot of potential but I think it needs more work. Great job anyways though :)

Neat story :) Great job on building mood.

The overall premise is fun, but as a fellow visual novel creator, I recommend that you polish your game in all aspects.

A small visual novel. Flashbacks to the past are very well combined with the dark atmosphere of the prison cell. Although I tried to take this seriously - some CG's made me laugh very hard. Nice work =P

Story has a good mood. I like the fact that it has plenty of different images that aid the storytelling visually. Maybe a little too scattered.

You need an artist and musician, then good to go!

Well, as far as LD goes, this is pretty original, i think.
