In what way does your game fit the theme?
2 things came in to mind when I first hear the theme. Special rewind ability, and Youtube Rewind.

Similar to how Youtube Rewinds are showcases of the most popular cringe or cat videos. This will be a homage to games I enjoyed during the first half of 2020 with a twist!

When your character dies, he would rewind to the start of the level. If you choose to play as a different character, your previous character would replay the actions you have taken in its previous life.

Did you write most of the code yourself and made all the assets from scratch?
I have coded everything myself (thanks to Brackey's videos) and made most of the art assets myself. I have used purchased game assets which are stated in the game page, mostly for map tilesets and sound

Cool. i like the idea of creating ghost versions of yourself that are more or less stuck in a time loop but the world around you is not stuck in that loop. Very nice :D I struggled with the reload mainly because it sometimes did not happened and I was not sure if there was a button for me to press to trigger it sicne I tried many buttons but could not figure it out. Otherwise, nice game :D

Hard game but the rewind aspect for the theme is spot on! I liked your take on it! 5 stars for sure!

Please play and rate my game too:

Good game, had fun figuring it out! Well some with the look and feel of the game!

A bit difficult, but enjoyable game. Liked the references to the other games, and also liked the mechanic of the rewind. I feel like the enemies are too hard, maybe its because of the speed of their projectiles, which are hard to dodge

Developer(+1)

Thank you.  The projectiles are not meant to be dodge, but more hiding in cover to avoid them, but I might reduce the speed to give the player the chance to dodge it, thanks for the feedback!

Some more player feedback on various things would make your game look and feel way more polished

Cool game! I like how the rewind mechanic works. It's not that punishing to the player because you can just rewind 1 player you think needs a rewind, which is very nice. Also I like the art and sounds. Great job

Submitted

Very cool and the difficulty is just right, forcing the player to come up with different strategies.

Just one nitpick: you could have added an ending screen or just sent the player back to the main menu after completing the last level,  without realizing I ended up playing the last level two or three times.

Submitted

Fun game, very challenging

Submitted

Very cool game. It is very hard though

Submitted

Really cool game!

The theme is similar to our original idea!

Got my rate!

Make sure to check out our game too if you want!

Submitted

Super cool use of the rewind theme. I also love that you can see the "FPS hands" on the VR guy

Developer

Glad you like the hands, wasn't sure if there were too distracting or not

Submitted (1 edit)

Really cool! Reminds me of enter the gungeon, but a lot more chaotic (which is good!). The second level was a bit hard though

Developer

Definitely wasn't heavy inspired by that game at all :P

Yea I agree, even I struggled through it during the final play test

Submitted

Really cool game! The character dying and rewinding is fun and can be chained into some cool outcome to defeat the enemy. I like the pixel art design as well. Nice job!

Developer

Thank you, glad you like the idea!

Submitted

Really nice idea! I really like how you choosed to give an homage to the games you enjoy and made it into a fun game, while manteining  the characters quirks mixed on the gameplay. My main complaint is that the blue guys shoot from all the way across the level, making it really difficult sometimes, but overall it's a very fun game with an amazing art : D . Congrats!

Developer

Thank you, "ideally" they would approach the character when you break their line of sight or out of range, but didn't have time to fine tune the range properly.

Submitted

I'm really impressed that you got this much done in one week! I had fun trying out all the characters with their different abilities. I also like how you implemented the rewind mechanic, it allows you to utilize all three characters instead of just picking one and running with it.

Developer

 Didn't have much going on last week so I spent all my time making it, glad you enjoyed the game! 

Submitted

This game definitely shines with the artstyle! the different characters and abilities mechanic is really appreciated, not that easy to do something like that in the duration of a jam. Well done :D 

Developer

First time doing pixel art, glad you liked it :D

Submitted

good game i really like the artstyle well done

Developer

Thank you!

Submitted

I really  like the take on the theme, thinking about setting up combos for my future was pretty interesting. The art was very well done as well.

One nit picky thing is that sometimes it seems an item will be highlighted when its slightly out of range.

Developer

Thank you, I don't know why it does that, but I ain't gonna fix something that ain't broken anymore, learnt it the hard way during the jam XD

Submitted

ok, this is amazing. Good job! love that you can play character with different abilities, it means a lot of replayability

Developer

Thank you, glad you enjoyed it!

Submitted

This is a great take on the theme, had a lot of fun trying to get the runs just right. also really loved the VR hands.

Developer

Thank you!  First time doing pixel art and animation, glad you like them.
