Shufflecomp 2014 Review: Light My Way Home, by Venus Hart
One-line summary: Brief, poignant ghost story with some electrical equipments.
Game inspired by: "Light Up My Room," by Barenaked Ladies
Things I liked: The game understood what I asked it to do. The NPC did some little gestures that made it believable and real. The easter egg was lol. Words and effects created a quiet mournful feeling.
Things I might like to see different: The first device in Ruin seemed something of gimmick, whereas other devices seemed more "at home." Also a key item at the end seemed generic or cliche a little bit. Some words (the verb "listen," the noun "stump") should be implemented.
