Thank you that is indeed a comprehensive video !

In fact there are game play sounds in the video ? I can hear the footstep sounds and the rustling of the inventory when it is opened and closed, even the radio song at one point ( 4:23 ). The volume of the sounds is a little low, but they do seem to be working.

There is actually very little sound in the game world. Only the footsteps, the opening and closing of the inventory and finally the radio. And most of the sound and animations are placeholder. Aspects of the game we are not quiet good at yet !

Thank you for pointing out the grammatical error ! I expect there are a few in there, since we did not spend any time proof reading. Will certainly correct it over subsequent builds.

Meanwhile I haven't been able to replicate the sound error. It is possibly a compatibility issue, maybe compressing the sounds in a different format should solve it ? If we manage to fix it and test it out I will certainly send you an updated link.

Thank you for being so patient with all the rough edges of the build ! and I really appreciate your point out these bugs to us.

No ! The game certainly has sound.

When you start the game there is no sound till the end of the tutorial and then again only footstep sounds till you switch on a Radio. ( These might be hard to hear if the volume is turned down ).

To definitively check whether the sound is working or not - try switching on a radio and see if anything plays ?

If not, could you send me your specs I will look into it !

Hope that helps. Thanks.

Thank you for playing Rituals ! I am really glad you enjoyed the build, and the surreal art.

The game is narrative driven and dialogue heavy, and certainly requires that the player spend time piecing together it's disjointed narrative.

The complete game will certainly continue this art, though as we get better at building the game we do expect to be able to refine it further.

Thanks again for playing !

Thank you.

Also the low polygon cups are intentional, we are treading a fine line between low poly art and textured, realistically lit game art - and where we might retain the 'broken' polygonal forms and where we ought to capitulate to refinement is something I constantly struggle with. Will look into changing the cups a little bit see how it feels in game !

A repetitive use of formal elements is particular to spaces, engineered to create awe or a sense of worship.

And while this environment is not quiet based on a church, it is based on the geometry of shrines, from pre-Mughal architecture.

Though again the scale in our case is deliberately diminished to make the inside spaces seem trivial and not splendid.

Fez is definitively a more evolved art style, and we are delighted to be compared to the same.

Yes, we were trying to create a less complex visual pallet than our previous attempts.
Since oxygen is a strategy game we wanted the player to be able to spend time within the environment, without getting distracted by animations and environmental complexity.

Good to know we seem to have achieved that ! This is our first attempt at pixel art, so we should progressively get better, with more iterations.
