More like a Small Robot Success. This game looks and sound adorably retro and cute!

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!

@Zanrise: Great video! Really appreciate the time and effort you took to review my demo.

I addressed some of your points over on your youtube video since I can leave longer comments there ;)

Also being able to skip through text or having instant text as an option in the full game would be a nice feature.I think it's a solid game and I look forward to seeing what else it has in the future. Although I feel a common question for this game will be what will it do to stand out?

It has me interested anyway. Sorry I could only fit this into two comments and congratulations on getting greenlight you're certainly deserving of it.

I played through the demo and did a video giving my thoughts as I went.

Still very new to doing commentary as I play so I have a summary of what I liked and disliked at the end of the video though I'll go into the issues I had with the demo here in case you'd rather not watch. My main complaint with the demo was pretty much the backtracking when you got to it, it would take you out of the fun of the game for a minute.

There was also an error in the text when you first bump into the boss. RAE says "And I have don't even have any functions".Other issues were the lack of a menu and options though I presume this is because it is purely a demo though it would be nice to have.
