Watch Game Jam Feedback 2019-11-24 from MrJoshuaMcLean on www.twitch.tv

Thanks for showing this. This is super helpful for the team. A lot of us are college freshman and just got done our first semester, so we will be working on the game over Christmas break. 


No problem! Looking forward to the updates. :)


Fun game with phenomenal art, but the card choosing mechanic seems two-dimensional; it changes the order of the waves, but not how they interact, so the decision comes off as unimportant and gimmicky. That being said, the art made this a thoroughly enjoyable experience anyway.

Thank you for the feedback! We plan on improving the experience and mechanics for the next major update, so stay tuned!
