Swimming would probably happen because of it, but I was more referring to the excuse to use constantly pooring water. I guess a flood would make things interesting... a great flood. A FLOOD THAT COVERS THE ENTIRE PLANET. Well, that right there is an idea! Thank you
Do you mean like swimming?
Sewers are pretty cool.
A flood would be a neat story element to keep things moving.
Glad you liked it. The rolling was explained early on and there's a controls section in the pause menu, but I understand the confusion. When it first tells you to do it, you don't NEED to do it, so it's hard to tell if the player actually learned the maneuver.
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER IN POST LATER ON
Ugh! That last helicopter level...ugh!
I had trouble with the rolling. I finally got that you had to press forward and down, and then I got that you had to re-press them during the jump if you were already holding them. I wish it had just been holding them instead (forgive me if I am wrong, I had troubles...)
But GOOD GAME. The story (or lack thereof...the unexplained premise) kept me going until the end...the VERY end, me being who I am. Not a "new" concept (dates being transcribed and yadda yadda) but it was REALLY interesting.
Wish I knew why I WAS this odd roof-hopping badass...the people in the mall were rather uninterested...is it a 2024 thing? Haven't played Mirror's Edge...
Finally...I just personally didn't understand the answer at the end... SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER people believing in God doesn't hinder free will in many religions. In fact, many highlight it...confused me a bit. Maybe explanation in a sequel?
I really liked the controls when I got going with them, I couldn't play with sound but wish I had, and I thought it was a really good game.
The anticipation of the ending was great...I truly thought the whole idea was very good, and the gameplay was well-executed (especially the frequent saves up until the very last level, where they rightfully got skimpier).
Surprised you only got as far as you did in the comp (didn't play Blackout so...). One of the best games I've played on the GMC...definitely in the top 5.
Excellent job: 4.3/5
The points I took off were for clunky controls and the "bad" resolution (the allowing for anticipation was awesome though)
The sniper...gimmick? I thought it was a nice (difficult) bit of variety to overcome.
Freewill wouldn't change with the knowledge, it was more referring to what people might THINK because of it. The concept of a god with omniscience and all that. I'm mostly around Christians, which does have the concept of an omniscient god. I don't know about others, but I assumed at least Judaic and Islamic views would as well. I could easily be wrong though, as I just made the game . Not much research here!
In any case, I do plan on going more into the story in the next game. Even if the story your using has been done before, making it detailed will at least make it a GOOD story, original or otherwise.
