Gnet

by Andrew - Mini LD Entry

The story of a young man or woman named Gnet (which is totally a real name and not a last minute acronym based off graphic novel engine test) which moves to a new town and scouts it out while contemplating all the adaptation that will need doing.

Additionally I junked my original idea and adapted to a shorter timespan with a simpler idea while going out of my comfort zone. I also adapted to my lack of graphic novel drawing prowess by going outside and snapping photos.

Note that I also adapted this notes section to illustrate all the meta-adapting that went into this game.

There may be typos and freezes. The engine got built in a matter of hours and will probably get rebuilt in the next few days post-compo style.

Cool so far. Are you going to have the text speed be adjustable? I'm not a fan of waiting to read :)

Yes of course. There's nothing more annoying than debugging the thing and having to wait for the text so I know what you mean. There'll also be an option to disable the fade.

An interesting game, but the fade and text speed is a little slow.

On my first play through: I asked for directions, didn't try a drink, looked up the steps, and it ended properly. I didn't interrupt the text printer at all.

On subsequent plays, I tried all of the other actions, and always interrupted the text printer, but the game didn't appear to end properly. It always stalled on the front door.

Unfortunately I'm getting that as well. Congrats on finding the 'good' ending first

Very attractive. I could play this game for an hour but it's too short...

I would also add some more player intercation like solving a puzzle or something, it will be cool.
