Hi everyone,

I'm looking for feedback on my Ludumdare 26 entry. I've already gotten a lot of great feedback from the ludumdare community and reddit and now I'm looking to get specific feedback on some of the elements of the game that I don't think got a lot of attention on those sites. I know that the music works well and that the play area could be a bit smaller while keeping the crowd density the same to reduce the play time a bit.

Specifically I'm looking for feedback on the following on several things but please play the game first and feel free to provide general feedback.

You can find the game here: http://downloads.garagecoder.com/LD26/index.html

Done playing, then great, I've got some questions for you.

-- Did you notice the animations and if so how long did it take? What would you change to make them more readable/obvious?

-- What would you modify to increase the fun/challenge without detracting from the message/experience?

-- Did the ending play out like you expected and would you want it to be different?

At first it seemed like people were simply wandering off on their own (the high population hides the animation fairly well).  After a while, it became pretty obvious though.  Maybe another change of color would help, like a shade of red but that definitely would break your current color scheme.  Honestly, I liked it how it is currently.

If you're looking for a challenge increase, you could have anti-couples, people who will grab someone from your group, look happy initially, but eventually break up within a few seconds.  Another thought on increasing difficulty (though that might cause frustration) would be to have people wander from your group in a minute if not satisfied.

All in all, I started to see a pattern and the ending was expected but definitely enjoyable nonetheless.  It was very nice and somewhat relaxing to play.

I noticed the animations after a little while, at first I wasn't sure why the people I collected were leaving but then it made sense, game-play and message wise.

I really liked the message/experience and it doesn't seem like it would benefit from becoming a challenge game. But you could have tsundere people that come, well actually they are like that already, well then I don't know, but color would be nice. Many different colored people would probably provide challenge and add to the metaphor. They could still be greyed out if they aren't interested.

Yes I loved the ending Smiley Thanks
