A bit off-topic, but is anyone else having trouble with the adds they play, as in, when you click the “watch add to play free”, or what ever the exact wording is, you can’t actually play the game when the add finishes, as it just has the ‘click love in advertizement’ button? Or is that just because of my voiceover?
Thanks for the review - I only just now noticed it!
By the time I finished creating the game, I certainly felt like I had partially failed at it. As you said, the stat system was quite difficult to understand and restrictive, while the personal relations / dialogue left much to be desired. All in all, it’s not very good as a gameplay / character experience.
On the other hand, even now, I still like the general concept of the story, as well as some plot twists and several events/scenes during the story. A more skilled author could have probably made it all work better (especially with some adjustments to word count and/or stat mechanics).
By the way, the mini-games are just there for achievements and have no other effect. Although you could say one reason for their existence is simply to emphasize how “out of touch” the space-based elite are compared to those fighting for survival on the planet.
