Unhack:Destruction has just been published everyone! It is a three episode prequel to the original tale. Visit the Play section to pick up a copy:
Hope you can spread the word. Really hope you will enjoy the experience. Thank you heaps everyone m(_ _)m!
The only reason why any of you would download and play this is if you need a kicker from looking at work that is more inferior than yours
I mean… ahem. God that was a long 9 months. x_x We really bombed it big time on this one. This build has only about 50 - 60% of the storyline as those are the only parts that were voiced. Not all the voice files are in, so you’ll hear missing voice clips and inconsistent voice acting as there was no time to QC those. Art isn’t finished either as again, time/budget constraints… the build should be fully functional though.
As I’ve mentioned before, I won’t be picking this project up again, and I’m really sorry about the awful quality of this build. It really sucks to not be able to make a full game twice. ): Live and learn, I guess.
RESOLUTION 1366 x 768 | GENRE Fantasy, slice-of-life | LENGTH ~1h | FEATURES Voice acting, light simulation elements
A big thank you again to everyone who’s supported us so far. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting anyone to care. A big thank you to all of my teammates, who worked with me tirelessly through this. And my deepest apologies to teammates and eager players alike.
Actually now that I’ve gotten over my initial post-release regret and have a clearer head, I realise that if I discourage others to play this, I won’t get the feedback that I need. And that’s not good, because without feedback I can’t improve. If I could ask those who have played the game (hopefully without encountering that mysterious ch04 glitch) for whatever feedback you could leave me, please?
Known issues include:
I wasn’t able to make a better textbox to replace the crappy one we’re stuck with
I wasn’t able to adjust the colours on the UI
The title screen looks awful and could have been better
The logo is AWFUL (can you tell that logos are my least favourite part of asset making)
Transitions could have been softer/better/more complex (I really, really need to learn more Ren’py ATL)
Voice acting is inconsistent and quite the mess (even though I sank most of my budget into this… sigh.)
Feedback I’m interested in:
Lip-flap/blinking: was this extra touch necessary? Did you guys like or was it done poorly?
Screen resolution: We could have gone 1920 x 1080 HD but chose 1366 x 768 instead for slower PCs. Is the resolution comfortable? Did you guys try playing it at full screen if your screen resolution is 1366 x 768?
Art: Ugh lol everything looks terrible to me but feedback greatly welcome (since I’m mainly an artist…). Should we have had more poses? Was everything boring?
UI: Is the text size okay or is it too big? Is the UI clunky? It sure looks clunky and messy to me aaaaaa Dx
Voice acting: Did it enhance the overall experience of the game? If so, by how much? Was the volume okay?
Narration: I’m not a writer so I cheated a lot with sounds and other assets rofl but is it bearable? I know the story’s not as well-written as other games… T_T”;;
Gameplay: How did you find the light simulation elements? I see in polls a lot that no one likes gameplay, they’d rather have the story up front… I love adding gameplay mechanics though lmfao I’m trying to see if there’s a way to do it without driving people nuts.
Music: We used free music for the entire game; did that affect how you enjoyed the game overall? Maybe made it seem rather cheap?
Transitions: The up/down transition to relate to character height was a fix we introduced for the PC version since lemon was initially planned to be a mobile game, and it was supposed to have a portrait layout (unlike the landscape orientation we currently have for the PC). Was it distracting/annoying?
Pricing: If this was a finished game, how much would you pay for it? (Also let me know if you’d rather get it for free.)
Other things: Anything else you can mention would be useful. For instance, I personally don’t think the characters are that appealing (ergh), they’re all quite generic… but if you have anything to say about that, I’d love to hear them.
Knock yourselves out. The more feedback we get the better because seriously, fresh eyes are great and all inputs go towards making better stuff in the future (when I actually do so). Tumblr’s a pretty crappy place to send feedback too because of its uncooperative messaging system, so if you have an account on LSF, you can leave your comments in this thread. Alternatively, the guestbook section of out site is also always open.
UPDATE 28/9: Ver 1.1 is up, fixing the glitch that players would encounter right before ch04 triggers. You are going to hear me apologise forever about this. I’m so sorry ;__;
Final reblog; I need feedback on the build and at the moment I don’t have enough (less than five so far). I’m not sure if this is because people haven’t had time to play — school has started after all — or if the game is just genuinely bad? ^^”;; If it’s the latter, it’s important for us to know that too. Sorry to be annoying about this.
(Btw, 100 downloads so far, about 20 - 30 of which are made after the latest update. Thanks for checking the project out.)
(Media Fire had issues uploading the mac version for some reason, so i had to zip it >.> idk why)
WELL. i sorta finished it…. sorta… youll see… YOULL ALL SEE…. >.>;
anyway, i hope i didnt disappoint you all too much lol;; i hope you sorta enjoy it? its super short… i have alot of other things i should be doing, and as i said before: this was only for fun. but i have a new project i want to start “for fun”, so ill be doing that instead, because this took too long. i wont be able to keep up with the story in the group.
In this Episode, Khzi’s mission gets complicated as the High Priest heading the church wants her companions dead or alive! Will she be able to retrieve the meteorite’s fragments while protecting the slave she took in on the way? You’ll find out soon ;).
COWGIRLS AND ALIENS EVERYWHERE XD
