casual carnival (prototype)
welcome to the CASUAL CARNIVAL!!
a prototype for an idea i've had for a long time now, a game that's basically a collection of minigames to spend the time, inspired by the ones that used to be shipped with our computers a few years ago. nowadays it's hard to find alternatives, as most are riddled with unethical advertisement, especially on mobile.
this is the first version ever, focused on having at least one game per tent, and presenting the game universe and its characters. fixed 16:9, pc only, no audio, concept art only, game mechanics weren't refined, basic dialogue system (basic dialogue in general, while at it); this is the simplest possible casual carnival.
i'm not sure if/when i'm gonna continue working on this. on a personal note, i've found out most of these games were depression games for me, and playing them nowadays doesn't really make me feel good. for now i'm putting this one on hold, but the prototype is here at least! it's good to have it done, and i'm proud of it.

The characters are so charming, and the games are fun yet challenging! 10/10
Did not expect to play a full game of sudoku but here I am. It was fun and nice presentation.
I love it!
Kiki is my fave <3
this game is sexy
i'm in love with the art (and with the game too)! i'm really looking forward to the next phase of this game because this is a great prototype.
I really like the concept of this, and the art is really amazing!! I love being able to just play old computer games but imagine I'm NOT sitting in a darkened room by myself! If you go through with this, I think maybe you should give aligning text in textboxes along the left, it's hard to read along with the scrolling text when it's constantly moving outwards from the middle.
aa thanku!! i actually added the scrolling at the last second, so it wasn't really thought-out gfdsdhf
but ye, proper scrolling will certainly happen in the Massive UI Redesign Phase (which is the next one actually). thanks for the feedback!!!
This is a great prototype!!! The general idea is really interesting, I love that the menu options work seamlessly through dialogue lines! The games are fun and the character design is amazing! I'd love to see where it goes if you decide to keep working on it!
