Please Read Before Posting!
Hi all! There may or may not be an over saturation of these "review" type threads nowadays, but I really enjoy seeing other people's work and helping to make it better by providing a sort of place to receive feed back so I'm gonna do it anyway. Please note that if you do post a game I will try to be as honest and polite as I can be. (So do not take any criticism as a personal attack I understand that making games is hard too!) Also, if you would like me to review your game, but want me to keep it a secret just message me with the link instead and I will be happy to review it there!
I will grade off of these six criteria on a 1-10 scale and respond with notes if I feel like something needs saying. I will also include an average score of all elements of a game to see how good your game is overall.
Game play: The concepts, pillars, and mechanics behind the game
Game feel: How it actually feels to play the game (Things like stability and polishing)
Art: Art assets and sticking to a cohesive style
Sound: Sound effects, music choice, volume, etc.
Originality: How unique is it compared to other games and what does it bring to a genre?
Story: How compelling is a narrative and does it compliment the game play? (I will only grade a game on story if one is present, otherwise, it will not be graded and not used in the average)
I hope to see many cool and interesting games! Don't feel shy about posting your game either and feel free to remind me to review your game after a couple days if I haven't! (Also please avoid sending largely unfinished games; the game could be the next Minecraft or Hollow Knight, but if it doesn't have a lot of content or is obviously missing important features, then grade could tank a bit!)
One last thing. The reason I am able to do this at all right now is due to the time given to me thanks to the unfortunate circumstances of Covid-19. If my time runs shorter or I have to slow down I will let you all know via an edit of this post.
Thank you all, you're an amazing community!
