okay, thanks for the feedback
Wow, that's brutal. Though, did you ever consider the fact that some of these entries were probably made closer to the deadline and therefore didn't have the time to get developed/polished further? This is technically a game jam after all - making an empty demo is already pretty decent for something made in less than a week (in my case, 2~3 days).
It's a DEMO.the game is very short
On a game that intentionally uses a monochrome '1bit' art style as its USP.I would however seriously suggest adding some color to the graphics.
and...NES just isn't really a console for artsy, narrative driven games.
Pushing the boundaries of creativity!I'd suggest using more Mega Man;ish tunes
I think that's why they reveal the contest theme a month beforehand. Although I feel like some entries "forced" the theme in their submissions, where the game isn't timeless-themed at the start of the development cycle, but added in an existing game as an afterthought.Also, there's no way to govern if people are spending 12 months or 2 days on them. I know its all a bit of fun but I've always thought the 30 time limit was a bit strange when people know the competition is coming up a year in advance.
In fact, there was a theme revealed at launch of the competition... Also, every games had to be made with the just released version of NESmaker, a few days before the start.Also, there's no way to govern if people are spending 12 months or 2 days on them. I know its all a bit of fun but I've always thought the 30 time limit was a bit strange when people know the competition is coming up a year in advance. It's not really something that can be judged fairly as nobody knows who 'cheated' and who stuck to the 30 days 'jam'.
I totally forgot about the theme thing tbh.
The reality of this is that when byte-off 2021 comes around I probably won't enter. I'd rather avoid having some self-righteous talentless clown ripping my work to shreds.
Their is definitely a lot worse music than what I submitted for the byte-off on the nes, just check out orb 3d
Did basty make friends from this?
Kinda doubtful, but I doubt that was the goal.
I've had em' blocked since this post. There is no reason to ever make a thread like this unless you are going to offer constructive feedback for each game "reviewed". Even then, there is no reason to put someone down over it, this post was clearly made to be "edgy" at best. Plain and simple. I'm fairly sure I've said something similar in a earlier post.
