Shufflecomp 2014 Review: Flotsam and Driftwood, by Conrad Elton

One-line summary: A surreal desert island nighttime puzzler.

Game inspired by: "Home By The Sea," by Genesis

Things I liked: Atmosphere. Spooky dialogue with shadow figures. The game felt like a nighttime.

Things I might like to see different:
  • Unlike with other Shufflecomp games where I want to see more realism, I think maybe I want to see less in this game. Make it more dreamy, less fiddly?
  • I could not intuit the first big puzzle, sorry. Maybe it should be simplified or even scrapped.
  • One technical thing, I had problems with instructions going in and out of the water.
