Thanks for checking out "Gaias Tears" an indepdendent style art game.

This is a short fictional retelling of a historical event for the

"historcial game jam 5"

It involves the story of the Baia Mare cyanide spill.

From Wikipedia:

"The Baia Mare cyanide spill was a leak of cyanide near Baia Mare, Romania,

into the Someș River by the gold mining company Aurul,

a joint-venture of the Australian company Esmeralda Exploration

and the Romanian government."

I like driving scene and the lake is totally purple xD

Thank you! Yeah I didnt have many color options, but its supposed to be a "sludge"
I wanted to spend more time adding explanations, but choose to cut it short so I made sure to push a finished project.


Quite good game.

Very kind


Didnt noticed how it ended a bit short but for 1 day its kinda.. SuS

You can do a lot in 24 if you are motivated.


Hi there, I am DragonExplosion and I am a Youtuber. If you like my videos, please leave a like and subscribe at my channel.

I have no idea if I have gotten the ending of the game but I felt that it was cool to add in videos of the event as well as the introduction of the game but there was a lack of things to do in the game before reaching the GAME OVER screen. It would be better if there were more things that the main character can do before the game ends. (This is under the idea that the GAME OVER screen was the ending) If there was more things to do, it would be cool if the creator let me know what else could I have done to enjoy the game fully.

Thank you for reading my comment and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.


Right now the only other thing to do is talk to the homeless man living near the woods. Normally I include a ton of easter eggs, but you're right this game is bare! Thank you for your video and extensive comment, it's just the type of thing im looking for. Right now im working on a "Darksydephil" game which is consuming a lot of my focus - but maybe I can add a bit more to Gaias Tears. If the rules allow I can try to do it before the week is over, if not than sometime in the future I can complete this game.

hmmm i dont really see how your game relates to that wiki thing you said , interesting design and use of your own camera video , but its hard to believe you designed all that in like a day . This could really be worked on


you tell me you can't believe I made it in a day and also say it could use some work - presumably because I made it one day and phoned it in.

I literally credited the video in the title, I dont know where you get that I used my own video. 

Are you accusing me of fraud by saying you dont believe I made this in a day? I don't take that accusation lightly. Either retract your statement or provide evidence for your baseless claims.

I uploaded this to steam if you want to poke around it yourself.  I have the thought that I can improve this if there is some sort of interest - I do enjoy feed back. I find your criticism to be lacking . I think you spent as little time playing my game and researching the event as I spent creating the game. As with most JRPG projects, they can be edited if the original files are saved - so as I mentioned if there is interest in the future I can try to push an update. I consider Gaias Tears a complete work. I made sure it played from start to finish fluently.  It tells the story. A masterpiece? No. That was never its intention. 

I DID make this in a day. With a lot of distractions as well. And I agree that I could have done better, but I have other games im currently working on and just wanted to finish (I almost decided to quit and not finish as I usually do)

I believe one of the suggestions were to not spend too much time on this project, so with that I did ensure I created a finished product which worked and is free of bugs. Im sorry its not emmy award winning, but maybe it will be next time.

What would you like to see added?


I mean you have seven days to make it now not that I don't believe you made in a day .

But why not work on it for seven days


I am looking forward to your submission, I know it will be the best.

I would say that you should take it as a compliment, that someone think's you would need more time to create, what you have created. I definetly agree, that creating a game like this would take longer and I also kinda accuse you of cheating. But if you created all that in one day(which only you know) I would be impressed and clap for you.

I have no reason to lie, nothing to gain from it. I only want people to enjoy the game. I agree I could have spent more time on it, but I didnt. 

Im not sure how I can prove I made this in a day, but in the absence of evidence that I cheated maybe you should give me the benefit of the doubt?

I guess it is nice people are impressed, but you guys have horrible attitudes to new devs. Why would anyone want to start out when everyone accuses them of cheating? This jam is literally nothing but an exercise to make games, if you cheat you are only cheating yourself the practice.
