Gaming At Sunrise

Hello, everyone! I've recently started a cozy gaming series on YouTube and I was hoping for some feedback!

I'm just getting into watching some cozy gamers myself, and would love to know what everyone's favorite aspects are of their favorite cozy gamers.

Any feedback or guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi there! I've been working on Barty's Adventure for a few years now and I wanted to provide the latest build (released today!) for feedback. My main inspirations for the game are Majora's Mask, Toy Story, Stardew Valley, and Chicory. Keep in mind that this is still a pretty early build, but any and all feedback is welcome and much appreciated.

https://i.redd.it/9url3mqkqgxc1.gif

INCLUDED:

An interconnected world of over 200 rooms and 10 biomes

Dozens of NPCs on their own various cycles

A three day time loop and ability to take items back to the start of the first day with you.

Quests and NPC dialogue in the Bookshelf, Kitchen, and Playroom biomes.

All powerups in their respective places in the world

Most enemies/bosses with unique death animations

Most collectables along with their unique collection menu screen.

NOT INCLUDED:

Sound!

Story!

A win state!

I really appreciate you checking out this SUPER early build of the game. Please share any feedback or bugs you may find, and hopefully you enjoy the world I've made!

These bubbly cute yet poisonous Snake Slime have undergone quite a few animations over the course of development of our roguelike deckbuilder. What do you think of the animation changes?

I made this action figure character for my toy-themed game, but I don't know if he gets the concept across. Is he "action-figurey" enough?

EXCEL Based Games?

One thing I haven't seen a lot of on YT are games made using Excel - obviously there are graphical limitations, but I have been having a whole bunch of fun making excel games (mix of formula and VBA).
I have been loving making games in excel and testing my abilities. The whole experience has been really fulfilling for me!

  1. Adventure game in style of Oregan Trail : https://youtu.be/sdi73Pr7-jI?si=bmkLYTWX18I94VMd
  2. Wordle in Excel : https://youtu.be/5Ier4ttf-5M?si=Iiiodzrbt-5fKVx3
  3. DnD style/ Baldur's Gate style game : https://youtu.be/jhsi9EnbzkY?si=gkP-ZmIRhbEeM2q5
  4. Pokémon battle style game : https://youtu.be/L0Jbef84p00?si=Ivbu7BW1Jzd9K9Mv

I would also love to know your thoughts on my games/videos - Please provide feedback/ thoughts.
