but at the same time votes where the author played more games should be more stable overall (there's less chance that they'll miss some amazing entry they'd otherwise rank at the top).NOTE: There is no pressure to play all 77 games.
For the record, the progress in other games *does* affect how Crimson Festival plays out; for example, if you don't complete Blackout there won't be anything played during music show, and if you don't complete it while keeping the Party Rat alive, the Party Rat won't appear on stage. You can right-click on title cards in the "Preparations overview" screen to cycle through completion states and try out different outcomes.Crimson Festival by Alice, FunkyPoop
I kept putting this game off because it says you have to play 9 other games first, which sounds interesting and unique. I thought maybe this was going to be a whole thing where the way you played the other games affects the gameplay in this one. But ok, it's just a collection of general references to the other games. Which is cool and all. It was cute.
I did, just to see what would happen. After the third time I started to wonder why we didn't check that other cabin more often since there always seems to be food there.- I've so far not seen anybody who've held a strict diet throughout the game. That speaks for something but I'm uncertain I would want to know what.

I had a lot of trouble on this one and it's also bugged. Many times the descriptions did not match, and one time I even ended up with zero matches and it was on the last person, making me waste a ton of time for nothing. Due to the bugs, and people in the back being too small for the details required (checkered and striped were near impossible to tell apart), I'm sorry to say that I didn't enjoy it.
This would do wonders for my stress level (and by extension, preventing a few more gray hairs from appearing). Even a single day would be appreciated immensely. Having two deadlines at the same time is rough!I'm wondering, if the voting period was extended by, say, a three days, how many people would be able to play through more entries or make their votes at all (or at least reach the review bonus threshold of 20 reviews and top 20 ranks)?
You can't name the crewmates things like Cheeseburger Jones and then also give me the option to eat them and expect me to refrain. You just can't do that to me.- I've so far not seen anybody who've held a strict diet throughout the game. That speaks for something but I'm uncertain I would want to know what.
Don't know what to say, except that I was able to reproduce it and record the issue. The last person does not seem to exist. Literally everyone fades away:There are always matches. The list is generated by picking a number of persons from the crowd and describing them: so it is guaranteed that at least that for any given item on the list there is a person that will match because that person is where the description came from and will give the right answer. When it gets complicated the matches may only match one or two people, but there is always a person. However a lot of people confused the words "shirt" and "skirt" and other similar sounding descriptions, so if you feel you clicked on a person and the list didn't check off an item that's most likely because the person did not match in fact.
Wow, upon opening the game again to record the above video, I now see the text on the bottom that tells how to magnify. I obviously missed that on my first play. My bad. That definitely helps a ton.For the people in the back I provided a magnifying glass you can use with control or the right mouse button. The details are still often hard to make out, but with 4x zoom it's very possible. However I agree the back row is very tricky: I tried to minimize the number of times a person is picked from the back row if it then wasn't part of the description that the person is located in the back.
Interesting. Yes, that indeed is not right. I suspect that the issue would have been resolved had I had time to fade out any wrong answers instead of anyone not a direct target: which is a much better solution anyway because that shows everyone you could click on instead of forcing you to find the one person involved. I suspect the missing person is somewhere ever so slightly off screen or behind a building because I had a few issues with the back-side portals that transport people around. However props to you for finishing the 50 person search. As a very lackluster apology I'll manually add you to the fastest 50 with the time in the video. Sadly there isn't an in-game list for that achievement: only the aggregated statistics, but know you have a few kilobytes dedicated to you at a nondescript hard drive somewhere in my hosting service.Don't know what to say, except that I was able to reproduce it and record the issue.
My honest feelings about this are that I think if people had more days, they would just wait 4 days to do what they were going to do today. I doubt more people would have more review time during the week than the weekend. And seriously it’s been three weeks(I think?) I’m dying to see who won this and I’m too lazy to calculate the votes myselfI'm wondering, if the voting period was extended by, say, a three days, how many people would be able to play through more entries or make their votes at all (or at least reach the review bonus threshold of 20 reviews and top 20 ranks)?
Now don't get me wrong, I know that
but at the same time votes where the author played more games should be more stable overall (there's less chance that they'll miss some amazing entry they'd otherwise rank at the top).
Also, it seems that a few voters would be willing to play as much entries as they can. Though at the same time, it's hard to tell how many more extra games people would play given three more weekdays (rather than a weekend).
(why they didn't play through all the entries earlier, then? They had their reasons, I suppose?)
So, I'm just curious, how many of you people would be able and willing to play through at least some more Jam games if the voting period was extended (compared to keeping the voting deadline as-is)?
On a somewhat related note:
If some of you got Crimson Festival served by Jam randomiser, and then decide to leave it for last because it uses progress from other entries: please, please at least try it out before wrapping up your votes for good. It shouldn't take more than 5-10 minutes for a full playthrough. You can even right-click on title cards to change game states and see how it looks with 100% complete games.
I just don't want a situation when someone gets my entry in a randomiser and then it turns out they didn't play it anyway, because they left it "for last" and that "last" never came to be.
If you didn't get Crimson Festival via randomiser in the first place, it's fine - I just want to avoid a situation when my entry is played significantly fewer times compared to others because people left it for later and then didn't get around to it.
