Hey, I don't know when this game was first created (don't follow the indie/game jam circle honestly) but I wanted to throw a proverbial coin into the hat. What drew me in was the GIF of the creature ("Eve"? Dr. Frankenstein's was to be named Adam as I recall, if Victor hadn't freaked the hell out) mournfully inspecting herself in that puddle in those gorgeous colours and I'm really glad she drew me in with that melancholy stare...  I loved every second of guiding her around the basement-workshop towards her escape. I wish there was so much more of it honestly no matter how cruel or unfortunate her existence turned out to be in the end, something about the patchwork woman makes my heart ache and I wanted to spend dozens of hours with her to be the parent figure her creator refused to be (and let's not think about his initial plans for her). That aside, and understanding the constraints of the Ludum Dare thing, I was just floored by the quality you worked into such a small file size! It honestly reminded me of early 90s Lucasarts adventures but a lot less frustrating, which is good because I was never an adventure gamer to start with! Seriously, I was blown away. If you ever get the urge to come back to A Heart Between Parts I would urge you to please, *please* do so... and find yourself a publisher 'cos I would certainly part with good hard currency for more of the same. :)

This game is amazing. It's crazy to think it's only composed of 3 rooms but, in those 3 rooms it tells a large story by the end of it you will be craving more!

That was a stunning re-thinking of the whole "Frankenstein" story, in my opinion, with a great focus on body and identity issues in some sense. Not just that it was a delight for the eyes, but also the poetically written dialogues. <3 Thank you very much for this experience, and I'm glad to see that you scored the 35th place in the whole Ludum Dare 33 with it. :) It's well deserved. I'm hoping to see more stuff of you, better sooner than later. <3 Happily I recommendedthis game on our blog and also uploaded a quick gameplay video of it!

Best wishes,
Sebastian

I love the look of this. Any chance you'll add an osx build?

Hey Crow,
thanks for your comment. Unfortunately the tool I'm using to make the adventures (Adventure Game Studio) can only build to Windows. But I am working on targeting other platforms.

Cool, I'll look forward to checking out your work!

Ohh ok! There should be a wine-skin out there for this, correct?

Yeah you're right. You can run AGS games like this one on Linux (maybe even Mac) using Wine.
