Hey everybody! I figured I would do a few playthroughs of some of the games entered in the 2017 IGMC contest on my youtube channel. I will post links to each one here and update as I do more! Spoiler: Botanophobia by: Miko This was a very enjoyable game! I encountered a bug about 20 minutes in, but it is playable, the developer informed me that you have to click the table next to the bed in the characters bedroom. It has awesome custom graphics and a great script. I had a part two but my screen recorder messed it up, so here is the playthrough up to the bug, you'll just have to play it yourself to see the rest! Spoiler: Caterpillar by: Blue Elixer Games This is a visually delightful game that obviously had a lot of effort put into it. It has a nice story although I think a lot of it is lost in translation. It was nice to play at to take in the visuals. Spoiler: IGMC 2017 Entry: Carpentry, Story By: FizzlyMike This game looks like it has SOOO much potential! Unfortunately it was too buggy for me to complete. Don't give up FizzlyMike, I'll play your game when you finish it! Spoiler: IGMC 2017 Dear Edwin, by lazybum studeos Dear Edwin is a very well done visual novel style game, the art is fantastic, the dialog is witty and smooth (although I couldn't see the words well due to the font and transparent windows... and my blindness, haha) Even though I reallllllyyyyyyy don't like detective stories, this one was as engaging as they can get for me. Some of the dialog seemed... drawn out. And there should either be better descriptions and repetitions of goals, or some kind of quest log. It wraps up very nicely with an ending they doesn't leave you scratching your head. This team did a wonderful job with this and I would love to see any future development projects they churn out! Spoiler: IGMC 2017 Entry Catharsis, By JAF This is a SUPER cute game about KITTENS!!! I loved the sprite graphics and the cuteness of the kitten dialog, each one had their own unique personality, which is cool. Unfortunately, be it my fault or by game bug I could not progress past a certain point. I enjoyed what I could play very much, good job JAF!!! Part 2 Spoiler: Lost Boy, by Rhino I loved this game!!!!! Rhino, you did an excellent job! The dialog was wonderful, it was interactive enough to keep my attention throughout and it told such a touching story!! Great job! Spoiler: Mute, by Yoobii I love the graphics and music in this game. It's also wonderfully weird, which I find awesome. However, I couldn't finish it, I was defeated by turds. Spoiler: Maker of Dreams by PotatobrainGames This is an Rpg Maker... Rpg Maker simulation game. I decided to do this LP in two parts, so this is part one! I'll share my impressions of the game in part two. So far I can say it seems very well made. OK, I'm sooooo sorry PotatobrainGames. I didn't like this game, but that's only because I have the attention span of a mosquito and found it tiresome, just not my thing. The game quality is TOP notch you did a great job! Please don't let my opinion bother you, this game is very well done and great quality for people who enjoy sim games, good job! Spoiler: Monstruct by Hadecynn Check out the partial review for this awesome IGMC 2017 entry, it is well made, the music is great, the quality is great and the dialog is just wonderful. (this is a partial review because of technical difficulties for the first half and because I'm just not very good at it...) I can't wait to see this expanded, it seems to just be screaming for a full length release! Great work @hadecynn Spoiler: Joseph of Descentia by Psenough This IGMC entry is about a man who has dementia. It is a wonderful game as it highlights a common occurrence that our elders face. At first it seems a little puzzling, but the developer does and excellent job of slowly piecing together a story to bring it all to a close. I hope he expands this idea! (sorry about the reduce video quality, I am again fiddling with new software for video recording) Spoiler: Subworld: End Prologue, by NJ4K This was a cool demo made for the IGMC 2017, for what is certain to be a fun game! I love the nonsense dialog the art and the music. NJ4K, let me know when this is done, I would love to finish playing it! Spoiler: Mouse House, by NinJaRed Come on down and watch me get trolled by the maker of the IGMC 2017 entry Mouse House! (If you are not trying to troll people, you fooled me and I am sorry) Spoiler: Last Boarding Call, by shlitty Wow! Can I say wow? WOW! This game took my by surprise, it was soooooooooooo simple and blank, yet psychologically engaging! I LOVE the thought process of this game! Spoiler: Happy Slappy, by Tao Oat Well, what can I say, this game is fun! I loved being able to slap the boring NPC's. Spoiler: Puzzle Room , by Nutty171 (guest starring my son!) This is a cool little puzzle game that I enjoyed thoroughly as did my son, I would love to see this expanded. Good Job @Nutty171! Spoiler: Brite by Rubescen This is really cool game! You play as a little flame trying to add light to a dark world. I get owned a lot and don't finish so if you want to see the end you'll have to try it yourself!! ;P Spoiler: Gnome Seeker by Marcial Ernesto Maturana Jimenez This would be a good game to just pass the the time, I'm not sure there's a real objective other than to play hide and seek. The graphics are all custom and pretty cute. Spoiler: John de TNT by stailgames This games looks pretty cool, I am curious to see how it ends, unfortunately it has a game breaking bug so I only get so far. Spoiler: INeXITS by BlankCat This is a confusing game, nice custom graphics. I'm genuinely curious about it's story, but at this point I'm not sure if it really has one, the actions are tedious and seem to lead nowhere. I think this idea has a lot of potential though. Spoiler: Entropy by Xevkin This game might be good, it might be bad, I have no way of knowing since I couldn't get out of the first room. (I made it out of the first room, check out part 2) Spoiler: Last Boy on Earth by JacobM A really cool game, made by a really cool guy, the DrassMann. Or as he calls himself DrassRay, or @JacobM . Look at these graphics! This game is polished and visually extravagant! Good work DrassDude, I look forward to future developments. Spoiler: "DREAMING ALICE BY SLIMMESKIE2" A cool little game in the flavor of Alice and wonderland. Honestly I was pretty confused by the whole thing, but then again, that may just be the point! Spoiler: Moop by Goeff Moore part 1 and 2 This is a cool little game! It ticked me off at one point because I couldn't figure out what to do... hence a part 1 and part 2. But still overall I think it's a solid game, very well written, custom graphics and not buggy! Spoiler: Electronic Memories by Rein Tristan Interesting little game with some not half bad beats, lol. Spoiler: Dosh Jobs by slowdancer Whaaaa???? Spoiler: Insomnia by Gundrivith This seems like a cool game, I love the art. Th battles are tedious and unbalanced in my opinion though. Spoiler: Event Horizon by readydotexe This entry to the 2017 IGMC indie game making contest is a lot fo fun to play, I regret that the English translation makes it so difficult to complete. I love the concept, it is does a good job of keeping you engaged. @readydotexe Spoiler: The rock and Rose by Seaphoenix A lovely and very well done game. I would suggest anyone play this at least once. Spoiler: A journey by Ruth Studio Wow! I am astounded at the masterful way this game tells a story, and in such a short time. This was by far my IGMC entry so far! Check it out!
