Very nice take on the theme!

Loved the mechanic of the girl walking blindly.
The fact that to save her from spikes the player literally picks her up on his shoulder was awesome :D

The puzzles were done nicely
The bg music sounds great
The visuals looks good, in particular the characters. 

Played until the end and had fun! :D

The game is very complete and interesting despite the little time to be done, I loved the graphics and the mechanics

Thank u  :)

Wow this game is amazing! For 7 days, this is pretty crazy, so much content at such a high quality. I got stuck in a couple of places - maybe a key to reset the current level would help with that. Other than that this game is pretty perfect. 5 across the board from me!

Thanks for feedback!
Yeah we have worked hard to make it and still much content had to be cancelled :D
I thought i got rid of "stuck" issue by adding more spikes on levels that u could get stuck in but i guess ill have to check it again :(
Thanks again for playing and rating :)

This is one of the most interesting game I have played in this jam.
I like the concept in this game that you have to carried a blind girl around to complete the stage.And I can't even believe you guys made this in 7 days, how amazing!
30/30 stars, what a masterpiece.

By the way, I think you should upload more screenshot. It is a little bit hard to know how this game plays like just from your thumbnail.

Submitted

By the way, this is my game. I will be appreciate if you can also give it a try :D

Thank u really appreciate that :)
I think u r right and ill add few screenshots :D
Also ive left a lil something in your games comments :)

I liked how you had to plan your way around having the girl with you or not to get through certain areas, it's very clever. I got stuck with a platform that moved with a button that filled a gauge. I could fill it up but it wouldn't move back. I also liked how you had to recover love by picking up the girl again

Developer

Platforms with tanks move back when the tank is empty :D
So now that u r unstuck u can use continute button and continue on the same level that u left :)

Thanks, I've now completed the game with that knowledge.  It was just that first gauge that baffled me, it's not normally doing something then nothing which is the way forward. If the second was first, it might have been more clear. Thanks for the spikes on the last level I got to the h8 stone without her lol.

Developer

I thought that when u fill a container and something happens its clear enough that something will happen when container gets empty

Guess I was wrong :)

Very good looking game!

Developer

Thanks :)

Good job dude!

Developer

Thank you!

Submitted

Really well done,

I love the art, and I like that you found a different solution for each level with not many objects (or atleast at the start).

Great game overall, good job!

Developer

Thank you :)
U mean levels at the end felt repetitive? :D
Just kidding :P But i think thats what gamejams r about to reuse the same assets to create different expiriences coz of time constrains :)
So im glad u liked it! :D

Submitted

yeh I agree with you regarding the game jams, that's why I liked it - with not many assets you found a lot of ways to diverse it so it won't get repetitive!

Just realised, I probably shouyld have commented about the jam here instead of the game's page? ^^ Well, I'm posting it here as well..

Very nice idea & mechanics. You can tell the puzzles are interesting and well-thought and the whole atmosphere is really pretty. Music felt a bit repetitive at times but it also fit the mood well and was really nice overall!.

There were a couple of parts where I got stuck and had to refresh the page because I wasn't even able to die to restart the level, but thankfully the "continue" feature made it so I didn't have to play the whole game again.

At one level (2nd or 3rd from last I think) sound was behaving a bit weird (jumping sound still played after I'd jumped or footsteps sounded without me moving) but it generally wasn't a problem. 

The main "issue" I think might be the fact that if the girl is near you, you can jump and then grab her mid-air. This allows you to jump high and still carry the girl. You can skip a lot of obstacles/puzzles that way and it might ruin the whole point of the game.

Overall, job really well done for a jam game! Haven't played a lot of the games yet but this seems to be one of the better ones, so far!

PS: Favourite level: The one where you had to clear the path for the girl below. Reminded me of Braid <3

Thanks for the feedback and finding those bugs! :D
Just uploaded version with fixed cheating jump and w/o levels that u can get stuck on.
For some reason player prefab on one of the levels had looping adudiosource so fixed that aswell.
About the levels i tried to introduce player to new mechanics gradually so its awesome u liked it :)
I hope u didnt skip levels but if u did u will now have a chance to replay the game w/o cheating :D

Thanks again for playing and im glad u enjoyed it :)

Haha I did skip some because I wanted to see the whole story but I'll definitely play it again properly! :D

Again one of the gems in this game jam. Everything is well executed! In few minutes ingame i understood the mechanics & controls but occasionally my input wasnt taken. For example you run left & pick your blind love and try to go right & they both keep on going left. Also jumps with lover holding sometimes do not jump & often fall on spikes :D Just some playtesting insight. Very well done, love this game!

Developer

Thank u! Glad u liked it!
I think i know how to fix holding jump
But i think we didnt do enough playtesting to notice that turning bug, ill take a closer look at this!
Thank u for playing and feedback :)

Developer

I think the holdingJump is now fixed
Still couldnt replicate the 2nd bug :(

Submitted

It was a very good experience, probably the best one I had in rating this jam.
Interesting concept, proper graphics, great environment, great music, interesting mecanics...well done, nothing else to say.
Just a little "default" to me : the foreground would have been better if totally black instead of a mix of hearts, I think...that's personal.

very good game !

Developer

Thanks for your kind words :)

We wanted to make it clear that he is blinded by love thats why the hearts r there but i understand maybe we will tune them to make it look better (maybe making them a little darker) :)
And thanks for playing!

Submitted

Really nice job. The first time that my love walked into the spikes and the level restarted I completely got it and was like - niceeeee mechanic.

Developer

Thanks
Ye she is blind! U need to watch out for her :D

Submitted

The design, animation and art on this is insane! Amazing work, congrats!!!

Developer

Thank you!
