wow so cute, i would be ok to pay this game with a download windows link :)


Really enjoyed playing the game. The gameplay was fun and innovative. I liked the character's expression when recording. Sound effects are awesome!



  1. Maybe add a sound effect for entering the recorder screen in addition to exiting?
  2. I noticed that the player character can be seen behind everything except the bus. Maybe make the bus transparent as well when he's behind it?
  3. I was a little surprised that the dogs didn't do anything. I think they could be an awesome recording source. Maybe find a way to add them?


Overall, I had a lot of fun playing Playback, and can't wait to see what direction it goes!

Thanks for playing and the feedback!

All of your suggestions is valid :) We are planning to release a new version when the jam is over. It will contain your suggestions and other improvements. Hope you will be able to check out again the updated game later :)


Its very calming. It's simple and cute. The music is so relaxing and the art style is so cute!

Thank you so much! Happy to read you had a nice and relaxing time :)


Graet idea. Perfect feeling of calm and the mechanic is simple but effective!

Very happy to hear you liked the mood of the game!


Wow, what a beautiful and relaxing game! Really different from all the other games I've tried so far.

One small suggestion could be to add some kind of minimap. Other than that, extremely well done!!

Thank you for playing the game and the feedback! We may add a minimap or a sense of progression after the jam is over :)


Cool, good luck with further development, you are awesome!
