Can’t tell if there was sarcasm in there or not (for someone to rank high, someone else has to rank low?), but good on you for deciding to come back harder next time-great growth mindset.Im really upset about this community. I may spend 10 days actually working on an entry and yet I still dont do a good job on getting anyones appeal. I even notice one person excluded my entry for the voting. Its been the same thing every jam for the past 7 years. This is nothing but a wasteful experience.
Im gonna play hardball next time and Im gonna make sure I make something you guys cant resist. And im serious about this.
Being the first time reviewing and first time with a (real) entry I am finding people’s tastes vary greatly. Samsam’s game sticks out as it appears top 3 and bottom 3. Other game’s get ranked real high for graphical reasons whereas I’m mechanics driven and can’t give top spots to games where the novel mechanic is meaningless or, even worse, should be actively ignored to do well. If there isn’t a novel mechanic and it’s just some pretty wrapping around some game that has beeen around since the 80s, that won’t do well either. That’s the subjective nature of a review.
