this game have deep story..

Thank you very much for playing it <3 I enjoyed watching your video :DD The first recorded video to one of my games ever!!


this game have beauty story .. ... never give up  by queen ...ps i working tester for lobby game ... :P


Very nice. During the flashback I get stuck after stepping on the small thing that appears when interacting with the black or red thing at the top. it elevates me into the sky and i can fly but no idea where to. Multi-jump controls are kind of broken - had to use mountains/ledges to get up. I feel ya - the standard Unity Third Person Controller isn't that great :/ Voice could have been more dream/epic effect with reverb effect (perhaps tweaking in-unity AudioSource settings would be enough - else audacity) But the voice was nice and telling-somebody-a-story like. Aesthetics are very nice. Looking forward to your future projects!

Hello iwanPlays, thanks for your comment :D
I just uploaded the old (not functional versions) so my teachers can see my progress during the last weeks :) I recently uploaded the newer and functional version (v.0.99999 whatsoever). I hope, a lot of things will be fixed there.
The voices were done by friends and with more reverb, they sounded kinda weird, so that's why I left it as it was. And yeah, you know Unity... its kinda hard xD

Thank you a lot for playing it!
