Really liked the graphics and the level design was nice too. Some music would make it even better.

Developer

I appreciate it! Thanks for playing, I’m hoping to add some background music or ambient noise soon

Submitted

Love this aesthetic. Love it. Really neat game. I could play way more.

Developer

Thanks! I'm hoping to add more after the jam. Thanks for playing!

Submitted

The games art style is really fitting :D Also everone walks very funny ithink you used procedural animation so that is impressive. My only problem was when missing an arrow you were pretty much defeated . Maybe give us more arrows or lower the score to pass :d

Overall i had fun with this one great work :D

Note : I would be happy if you could check out my game as well :d

Developer

I appreciate your feedback! Thank you for playing!

This is a great game. I really like the style. You should add on more levels and a few extra features and make it into a full game. I really enjoyed it.

Developer(+1)

Thank you! I'm hoping to polish it up a bit and add some more as well. Thanks for playing!

The art in this game is really good! The gameplay is great as well. I found myself lining up shots and waiting for the perfect time to strike. There was a bug that caused me to fail the level if I shot the bow after winning, but other than that, well done!

Developer(+1)

Thank you! I definitely forgot to fix that one but I definitely will. Thanks for playing!

Great game! Love the stealth mechanics, the ai logic, and the fact that unlike most stealth games you are not using a shot weapon! My only criticism is that the UI could get a bit of improvement in two ways: by making button text totally uppercase and having the arrows used displayed in another format other than text(maybe a progress bar or an arrow icon?). Awesome job nevertheless! Well done! 

Developer

Thanks for your feedback and thanks for playing!

Really cool Game Design. Great work. if you don't mind could you check my game out??

Developer

I appreciate it! Thanks for playing!

This game had things i do not know how to do, i cant never do it in jam time, great work

Developer

I appreciate it! Thanks for playing!

This game was well made, great polish :)

Developer

Thanks! I appreciate it!

Daaaaamn, this game is amazingly beautiful and polished. It is almost a profesional result. With some more features you can make a very solid Steam game. I really enjoyed the gamepay. The AI is not perfect, but works really well and I can guess that it needed a lot of hard implementation work. Do you use procedural animation for the legs? If it is the case, can you explain me a little how did you do it? I am very interested. Really good work mate.

PS: If you can test my game I would really appreciate it. :)

Developer

Haha thanks! It definitely could use some more polish but I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it. As for the procedural animation, it's something I've been really trying to figure out since I started making games. I found a short video a while back that explains how to do it in a few steps. I think the video was by Codeer on youtube so definitely look him up. So that video got me thinking on how to get those steps to work, and what I ended up doing was making a limb in blender, and then using Inverse Kinematics in unity to attach the leg to another object (the body). With the IK you can set the target of the limb as a point on the body which makes it really easy, and then you can set a target point for the end of the limb that's on the ground and then change it based on the distance from the target. I know I just butchered that explanation haha so I would definitely look up that video up and go from there. Thank you for playing!

Submitted

LOL, I had already watched that video, I think that Codeer is the only youtuber that had talked about thist theme hahahaha. Anyway you explaination is very helpful. I will keep investigating this theme for making a prototype. Thank you a lot mate!

Really nice game i loved the visuals a little quiet with no music and few sound effects but the gameplay was top notch and the AI actually felt smart most ai ive seen in this jam has just ran in random directions but this was nice i loved it! i also love getting a double or triple kills, what would have been cool is if you had a narrator say like triple kill or double kill or maybe have points that don't really need to mean anything they just say like +100 points per arrow not used or +200 points per iple kill like a double is +200 but a triple is +400 or something like that. I really enjoyed your game nicely done!


i would appreciate it if you played my game thanks!

Developer

Thank you! I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it. Also thanks for your ideas! I’ll look into those. Thanks for playing!

I played this on stream and I'll send you clip from it if im not lazy.
Good game and getting multihits felt very good. Biggest problem in the game was maybe movement speed becouse it was kind of too slow. Also difficulty curve was on point

Developer

I appreciate it! Thanks for playing!

Submitted

Hi ! I really like your idea and how the game looks. Feels like it could be more fun if it were more energic but it's only my opinion.

I had a small bug in which when you finish the level and you missclick next level you get a game over because you shoot more arrow than you need to.

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! I definitely plan on addressing both of those things. Thanks for playing!

really nice game, one annoying problem i had was that when i used to many arrows that it didn't reset automatically, and that i couldn't reset the level manually.

the game could also have benefitted from some chill music.

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! I definitely agree, thanks for playing!

This was so good!  The only thing wrong is not enough levels. Maybe some environmental noises too.

Developer(+1)

Thank you! I'm definitely going to add both of those things as soon as possible. Thanks for your feedback!

Submitted

That was a really great game. It was the right decision to make the arrows pass through. That way, the shots had to be smart. While the enemy AI is simple, the enemy detection light not passing through the Stones was something that could have taken a lot of time. This is a Jam game and the time constraints are obvious. If you choose to move further,  I think the things to improve would be adding some ambient noise in BG, a little smarter AI with different types of enemies, different types of arrows, and a little better animation. I know you could have already got such advice from people before me and maybe you already knew what to improve. But, for me, What you accomplished in this game jam was amazing and it was polished to a great extent. Thanks for this game! It's always fun to play something that's polished this much. 

Please consider playing and rating my game as well. I would really appreciate it. Thanks!!!

Developer

Thanks for your detailed feedback! I'm hoping to revisit this soon so I'm planning on adding some more variety. Thanks for playing!

Submitted

Getting double or triple kills was very satisfying. Such a unique but simple idea as well. Congrats!

Developer

Thank you for playing!

Submitted

It was really fun...wished there were more levels =( but just because I was having a lot of fun with it...

Developer

Thank you! Yeah I wish I would have had time to make a whole bunch more levels. Thanks for playing!

Submitted

The enemy AI is simple and is very predictable but that is not a bad thing because you can't progress if you use too many arrows and you need to get these one shot two or three kills. The animations are a bit weird with the legs but it works well with the game, my drawbacks is that it doesn't have any music, and that it takes too long to charge the bow. Great entry!

Developer

Thank you for your feedback! I appreciate it

Submitted

I loved the artstyle and concept of the core gameplay! I think improving the AI and adding environmental interaction would've elevated the game, but for now its a nice stealth game :)

Developer

Thank you! I'm hoping to revisit it soon so I'll definitely work on those things. Thanks for playing!
