I just finished the game, and I must say that I rather liked it's story and atmosphere. Gotta agree with the previous comments that the instant deaths and the locker code puzzle was a bit unintuitive though.
Has 1984 been a source of inspiration for this game? :)

About instant death, imo, it's not a problem, as we added autosave/autoload (but maybe I'm wrong hehe).

About the locker code: yeah, sorry, we had no time to find a good way to give a proper clue.

About 1984: it's the must in the dystopia genre (and there is at least one direct reference* to it).
Still, U-ROPA is more an uchronia.

Anyway, thx to all players for their comments, really appreciated and important to us! :)
It makes us want to keep doing indiegames. ;)

*There is another reference based on a must SF novels.

Yes, I saw the quote on the plaque on the wall! The game did a great job of creating a totalitarian atmosphere as well as making me curious about the outside world, and I was hoping that the protagonist would make it out safely by the end of the game. Rooting for an indoctrinated servant of a dictatorship is a rare thing in games. You say that the story is inspired by historical events, and it really shows (Especially with the names!). If there ever is a sequel, I'll be sure to play it! ;-D

I'm really glad to read this, coz that was the point.
It could sounds like an evidence, still, imo, games need to tell a story and create an atmosphere, especially point'n'click.

MAGS (and jams in general) are a great way to learn, experiment, train for bigger games. ;)

Thx for playing, thx for giving feedbacks, thx for the support! :)
