ok i decided to actually play it and it’s mostly text, i’m not opposed to ‘gamifiying’ the essay but this is a shoddy attempt at it, it’s basically just the essays squished into text boxes on a faux-8 bit screen which makes it inifinitely harder to read. the music is pretty good tho, the graphics aren’t ‘bad’ and the game mechanics are ok but it could definitely be done better.

imo the text should be cut down and the gameplay worked on, of which there is practically none

3/10
