Honest Thoughts & Opinions:
Firstly, this is truly a surreal journey. I won't spoil the story for anyone who wishes to play through this absolute gem of a game! From the very moment the game starts, I'm already thinking to myself how weird the world is that's being presented in front of me. The moment that weird character starts talking to me, I'm questioning my existence in this world.
The sound effects for what sounds like weird vocals mixed together, I don't even know what they are saying. Are they saying anything? It does sound like the same sound effect is used for many characters except for one character... I won't spoil the story.
Everything seems very OFF, it's weird yet not unsettling enough to make you feel truly uncomfortable. I feel that's where you really struck the balance perfectly. It's not too heavy, it's not too light either. The story is definitely questionable as it makes you wonder if there even is a story based on the tasks you end up doing for your friends in this world.
Things start to get weirder as you delve deeper into this world. There's clealy a lot to be read from certain characters too. What I really like is how you definitely went along with making this less disturbing by adding that much needed comedy that meshes really well with the other material. I can't help but feel that this project could be turned into it's own bigger project. I feel you have captured a very visually pleasing world that's so simplistic yet it just works... I honestly don't know how to explain it but you've somehow created something truly unique!
Overall, the squiggly animation was enough to satisfy me from the very moment I noticed it. It reminded me of old cartoons. I really hope you continue to make future projects like this one. I can see you have great potential to tell weird stories / create weird wacky worlds. I can't help but feel you were inspired by a dream you had? It's just... it feels like a dream all the way through. Makes you question it several times, I noticed something really interesting:
If it is all just a dream, this isn't a spoiler by the way! The fact you can't use the bed really solidfies this concept that you are not able to sleep due to already dreaming. I don't know what else to say but you definitely deserved a lengthy review to really express gratitude towards your project! I'll be willing to donate in the future but right now, I can't help but want more! I really hope you make a sequel or something set in the same world. What did you use to create this game? :)
I've got so many questions for you. Do you have a Discord?
Thank you ever so much for sharing this hidden gem with us! :)
Overall Score: 8/10 (There were a few moments where I got confused where to go)
