A very novel way to present stories in a videogame.

Hi, I'm currently making a series where I play through every game submitted to the Wretched Weekend Jam, and yours was the 21st game I played!

I've got to say, for such a short and straightforward experience, I was blown away by the aesthetic of the whole thing. The way the windows pop up on the screen, like you're reading some sort of interactive storyboard, amazing.
I've genuinely never seen anything like that before, well done!

Here's the video for those interested (time stamps in description):

much appreciated! enjoy the rest of your journey playing the jam games! 

This was a really cool set of vignettes. I had no idea Unity could do rendering like that. This has to be one of the most visually creative games I've played.

thanks! i didnt know it could do it either, its still super janky but im looking into how to fix it

When I run the executable, the game appears on a corner of my screen and I can't move the window.

as it should, carry on! 

Ah I get it now. Great aesthetic choice!

thank you! glad you enjoyed it!

This game is pretty interesting, i suppose the bandit claimed he burned the samurai in his home and then murdered the lady, the shogun claimed the bandit robbed the lady, he shot the bandit and burned down his house, and the lady i just didnt understand at all

Is the game finished and needs no more updates?

There need to be a lot of fixes, and some clearing up of the story, i just couldnt assemble it quick enough during the jam

Good, I will wait for the next update then.


Impressive tech, puzzling plot. 1st game in the video
