    Lonely Thought - Awennor - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    A lonely kid struggles with his inner thoughts...

    Click on the screen to shot at a word, simple as that. But don't let them consume you.

    Try to unveil all the messages!

    I aimed for a songless, still design, I hope it's not too bland.

    Pretty boring.

    Plus, when I start it in cmd, it says that it can not find a resource that in C:\Users\Pedro\*something something*

    It ran fine for me.

    I was interested in getting the narrative but the gameplay is a bit frustrating. If you were able to move around or something it might be a little bit more interesting?

    In any case, nice concept. Oh and I like the artwork for the kid as well. :P

    Nice idea, shooting the words as they come to you. I also liked the spotlight showing up as game progressed.

    But I tried and tried to shoot the "Stage X" word, and nothing happened :-( You should do something about that!

    Also, the speed of the message when you complete a level is a bit too slow, you should either speed it up, or allow the player to display the message all at once with a key.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone!

    I guess it's pretty boring indeed, a dark room with shooting words, but that could be part of the atmosphere?

    I guess not being able to move makes it too static, I could have added that easily too... Well, I'll keep in mind, thanks again everyone!

    Took me a second to get it, then I got it. Funny stuff. It flickered on Windows XP in Oracle's Virtual Box.

    The concept is nice, but it was not really challenging.

    Not very motivating to play longer than a minute, sorry ...

    This doesn't really feel like a game, and is kind of boring after the first stage. I think there is potential in the idea though, perhaps more time and a more fun mechanic would make it better :)

    Could have worked as a typing shooter!
