This was my first game jam! And damn near my first finished game. I have no delusions of winning, just super happy with how much I learned and having finished a project in such a short time!
Man, that's some team building boss right there! Very nice! Love the pacing in the beginning but then it got a bit repititive in the center. Also couldn't read the boss's texts while concerntrating on the people, even though it was eventually a pattern.
Great work though! The ultimate trust exercise!
Very cute. It gets old after a while for me. But so did my game! I find it hilarious and thematic, and the gameplay is fun. Maybe some explosive employees can be in the middle and launch into a tirade or something. I particularly liked how I wanted to keep reading what the boss said which was hard to look at while playing the game.
Everyone; after the boss dies, there may be 'another direction' the team would want to move in :-) That was my first end-screen, wonder if there are more…?
I'd agree with the others, I was just barely able to follow the 'boss-speak' at the top. Maybe you could place the speach-bubble at the bottom of the screen instead of at the top? (Or is that part of the thematics… hmmm, 'visual methaphore' indeed?)
Anyway, nicely done: Converting a simple mechanic into something that fits very well with both the theme of the jam and with the narrative/message of the game.
ETA: Oh, I just read this was your first jam. Congratulations!
