I have looked through the comments and have seen many people talking about how bad this is and some others accusing them of being shallow. Let me just say that I didn't really like this.
So this is another "art" game. It seems like it could be a good genre, but too many people decide that if they make their games simplistic and boring and include some kind of theme of depression to it their games are "emotional" and "deep". While I hate to argue with anybody on the basis that I might not "get it" or that I might use too many "quotation marks" I found this gamed to be cliche and overall boring. If a story is to be told, make it longer, better and make me sympathize.
The character has... no character. The definitive feature of him is that he is a slow moving bastard. This game just wants you to spend ages on it. Especially that clock, so far I have gotten the timer down to 5000 and I'm beginning to wonder if I should bother waiting any longer. If the "prize" really is worth it.
The story: A man kills his wife and gets depressed, jumps off a cliff. No matter how slow and how many virtuoso piano pieces we put over it, that's what it boils down to. It's very boring and there is nothing new.
Graphically, I see it is meant to be minimalism but it is not just that, it is awful. I am confronted by horrible blocky things with garish colours. Also, would it hurt to program his legs to stop moving when you stop walking? It makes him look like he's on the brink of wetting himself.
So, in summary, try harder next time: This is basically a movie (A tedious movie) with the added feature of moving yourself; I don't really care about graphics too much but they were horrible; The story is old and used; The gameplay is incredibly padded with slow movement meaning a game that would take about 1 minute to complete without feeling empty is now stretched out and incredibly boring (And expects you to wait for the clock as well!).
I think I spent longer playing the game than you spent making it.
100% medically accurate
Weird movie weird game. Kinda retro, bit addictive, kind of fun I suppose. Well made game overall but I got bored quite fast.
You sir, have an amazing sense of humour. I loved the game and also :the game:. Hoping there's gonna be a third.
What an atrocity! (lolololol). I agree the intro was bad and i also think that the animation was POOR to say the least... I've been searching for a good scare but all I've found so far are your pieces of miscreant malformed muck. EXCREMENTIAL WASTE!
I'm actually really disappointed... I don't like the fact that to buy this game costs £12 I'd even probably enjoy a game thats half as good as this and free. I hate demos in case you didn't notice. I do appreciate the effort put into this but im quite angry about the whole demo issue. :( It's quite sad you need to make money off this when game making should be a hobby, for the maker and the player. I just don't think a website such as newgrounds needs this sort of thing. I do like the game but it really strays from the original point and clicks I enjoyed so much!
beef up the burger a bit
I like this series, I can see how it has developed from the first, which it has... A LOT. No offence to shift 1 of course :D. Now this game gets it's stars from the gameplay idea, the execution, the story, the puzzles... BUT it's only 8 because I think it's not a massive step from shift 3, just the multiple people and the small bits of low gravity. If the next game comes out I'd like it if there were a few more additions to it. Overall though this game is amazing and I hope to see a lot more games from you. Keep it up!
Hard but fun
I managed to get to floor 11 but now I must get higher. Rargh! I guess this game shows us that even simplicity requires skill. Nice job!
I won, I won, at pirate defence!
Nice game, very original with the trap system and interesting to find a way of doing it right. 1 problem... you can put crates on the exits and it causes a script error or something like that, the pirates start digging holes evrywhere and it ends up with a screen full of pirates and a game full of lag. ARGH! Nevermind though, that'll teach me to cheat :D
Amazing game. Really funny humour especially the french-spanish-german walrus. The storyline cannot be any better I will remember this game FOREVER and if I have grandchildren and computers still exist then I will show them this and be proud of our time. Long live the 2000's!
no pun intended...
EPIC! Great animation, amazing gameplay and the best storyline ever (hurr hurr). I must admit I did only play it until I died but thats just for this first sitting. I died at the big, turret, robot... THING that had a gazillion health. I'm not complaining... it's probably my fault I died.
