A delightful little game and a great pitch - very funny and I think you came across as having a really great persona, well done.

As for the game, I particularly liked the use of red as a visual cue to highlight usable objects - very good, but yet the kind of thing even the most seasoned developers often miss.

Thanks guys, and thanks for the plug, Ashley!

I'm glad you liked my persona Corvidae, it took a lot of work to create because in reality I'm repulsively dull.

I added the red highlights because I tried the game on a couple of film students and they had NO IDEA what they were supposed to do or able to interact with.

I remember watching a Let's Play of a freeware adventure game I made called Nelly Cootalot and it was the same crushing experience, but too late to fix it!Ali2011-10-10 16:35:25

Immersive and professional work. Got sucked into the game in seconds. Art style and gameplay is a win!

[QUOTE=shinkan] "Your browser does not appear to support HTML5. Try upgrading your browser to the latest version" on IE9.[/QUOTE]
IE9 supports HTML5, of course. This happens because this tag is missing from the page's HTML:

[code]<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=IE8" />[/code]

If that tag is not present, and IE by some voodoo decides to render the page in an old documents mode (e.g. it decides to pretend to be IE8), lo and behold, you have no canvas. Don't forget that tag!

Works here in IE9, but I'd advise when styling the page yourself, don't remove any head tags from the exported HTML.Ashley2011-10-11 02:03:02

Oooh, did I miss that? I've added that line into the page. I'm on a mac today so I can't test it, but hopefully it'll work.

Thanks for the help!
