Guess Who?

Guess Who? is a game about stereotyping and not looking past certain superficial features. You get asked to search for a person who did a certain thing like 'carying a bom' or 'stole a piece of chicken' or who look like 'a dancer' or a 'gamer'. We give them a couple of visual cues (eye-color, glasses, hat) and let the player look for them in a mass of characters, a sort of dynamic "Where's Waldo?". What if the player finds 2 characters that fit the description but one of them is looks like an Arab and the other one like a nice girl. Who will they choose?

Hey!

Just a heads up. It looks like a nice and fun concept, but I tried playing it in Firefox and Chrome, and I don't know if it's working properly with me…I get the clues of who I need to check that is with the bomb but only a guy with white hair and pinkish shirt appears. If I click anywhere, nothing happens.

The idea is really good. Probably the traits should be a bit more easy to distinguish! Anyway, your point with this is good! :)

this is a super neat concept! after a couple rounds, it bugged out on me and i couldn't click anyone. otherwise, i think the game could use a bomb sound effect when you lose- otherwise, lotta fun!

Managed to win in the end took me a litle while to figure out what was going on and how it worked, fun concept and take on the theme. Music and art was nicely done too. Was kind of expecting multiple levels or something to add some variation and keep it interesting, but I was only ever seeing find the guy with the bomb.

The concept seems cool and I quite like the entry scene, but after quite some tries I have to admit I still don't get exactly what is going on.

I liked your music and graphisms a lot! Also, good concept and screen design.

Sadly, features were a little bit hard to distinguish, and there was only one chance so gameplay wise this was a little unforgiving. I don't exactly get how you addressed the theme?

Quality audio visuals.

The interactivity is somewhat dry: search for features in a crowd with a time limit to top it off. It works, but I would have liked too see increasing complexity even if only in the form of more clues to keep track of. The description hints at missions other than "find the bom" too, so what gives? Slightly disappointed.

Thematically this is just about there. You can't see everything at once; and of course cannot see beyond the superficial, not that it matters much.

Ok entry in all.

Pretty nice idea! Yet I think it needs some more work, apart from the things that have been pointed out, I think the game starts to straight forward, maybe there could be a menu without a losing option, and some kind of tutorial before throwing the player into the game

Nice Job!

Guess who planted the bom or who cleaned the kitchen by means of several visual clues.
