The game window is huge! I'm glad I have the resolution for it. I don't know how to "play" this game but it's amusing and interesting

I selected a lady as Romeo and got this! Clearly your code can't handle a modern perspective on gender an-- lol only kidding. I tried to repro it and I couldn't, I might have been holding down the right arrow as I pressed space.

Entertaining. I like the idea of putting different personalities in different roles to build a dynamic narrative.

I really enjoyed seeing the different personalities of the characters. It was fun! It would have been cool to see different reactions to choices, like choosing both girls for Romeo and Juliet haha.

I loved it! It was short but that was cool, replayed a bunch of times for different options after it made me laugh from the start.

Great dialogue, cute graphics, good idea for the theme, definitely a really nice little game.

Girl in pink was my favourite. :)

The writing for each character is superb, giving each one a unique personality that you want to explore by choosing each of them for each role. Very funny.

Love the writing here. I think the southern girl is my favorite, along with beefy guy. I would watch the whole play with those two in every role.

This would be a lot of fun with different character packs, like Lawyers Through The Ages, Webcomic Authors, or Dysfunctional Family.

Brilliant, didn't even realize at first each character changes the dialogue, makes for a lot of replayability, nice job :)

Hey do you get an error when you try to start it ? And is it on Windows or Mac?
OnlySlightly
28. Dec 2013 · 03:23 UTC
@iiechapman It's a windows executable. And I do not know. Are you getting an error? And is that error when running on windows?

I was already sold from the pun in the screenshot !
Fun writing, I loved replaying again, good job.

Weird but funny game. I really enjoyed messing around with the cast and basically making rather unique productions of Romeo and Juliet.

Great premise! I hope you continue working on this game, I would love to see the rest of the play. The music and the writing is superb. Role swapping is great fun.

Yay for games that allow for two female or male leads :)

As some polish it always shows the background for about a frame before switching to the next scene. It's one of those annoying things players notice so it'd go a long way just to make sure it's visible is set to false on init I think.
