I loved this game. "Freeze Sucka!" lol Lucas Arts eat your heart out :-)

Really good game! The art was especially interesting.

Very good game mechanics. It was very fun to play. Maybe a little slow. The music loop could be done so much better but I like how in the last levels the music climaxes. And the feline development team was the best.

Really cool story, the moment when you see all the floors and camera moves down felt like an eternity, but aside of that, playing was nice and I enjoyed it fully. :)

Groovy tunes and radical art, never knew I needed baby mechanics in games until now

Nice game, great story and mecanics.

Developer

Thank you for your feedback :)

Really cool game with a  great story.  I've actually never played a stealth platformer before so very cool :)

Developer

That’s so cool! I’m glad we could give you something new. I really love gunpoint and I think that was a big influence for me when designing this game. It’s cool and stealth based with great pixel art, check it out! 😁

Well done. Very original! I recover the formula! Congratulation

Developer(+1)

That’s so cool! I’m glad you managed to recover the formula. ☺️ Thank you for playing and also for commenting. We will be streaming games from the jam later today on twitch, so let us know if you’d like to see you game played live.

I would love to! Thanks

Excellent game, the main mechanic is clever and well balanced. You've put a lot of work into this and it really shows.

Developer(+1)

Thanks very much! We did put a lot of time into but we’re going to add more to it with updates for sure. Lots of little things to fix. I’m glad you enjoyed it. We really liked your game too and thanks again for putting it forward to be played live. 😊

Great work! This game reminds me of the Hugo point and click games!

Developer

Thanks so much. I am not sure I know that one. I’ll have to check it out. 😁

Let me tell you I had a similar idea when the theme was announced. I started a project with this ageing concept and then after some hours a deleted ir and start from scratch haha. Good to see this concept beeing done well.

Pls, if you have some spare time, check my puzzle game. The main mechanic is time rewind of your bomb, but enemies react to your bomb is different ways. There are 12 levels and you can do they in any order you like.  I'd appreciate any rating  https://itch.io/jam/brackeys-4/rate/721302

Developer

Sure thing, I’ll take a look now. Thanks for playing our game. We had fun making it and have only seen a few games with the same idea! 😅 Actually saw a couple that did a really good job of it. I love pirates so I think I’ll enjoy your game. We have been streaming a lot of the game from the jam over on Twitch. If you fancy having you game played live let me know and we can stick you on the list. 😊👍

Submitted

Sure, you can play it live. Send me the link to your channel and I'll watch it

Developer

Here you go! https://m.twitch.tv/trianglesquarecirclecube/profile if you follow and hit the bell you should be notified when we next go live, which will be tomorrow afternoon,  (UK time).  Let us know when you’re on the chat and we’ll play and rate your game live for you. Should help others see it too. 😁

Really enjoyed this one. Makes you stop and think which age you need to get past the rooms. 

Developer

Thank you for playing our game, really glad you enjoyed it :)

Submitted(+1)

Really liked the concept, very long intro though.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback :)

just played old baby man, really good!, the art and the music where great, i would probably make the man a bit faster and add a view cone (maybe a torch light) to the enemies so you can see whether you are safe or not, apart from that. top notch!

Thank you :)

very nice story and aesthetic!

Thanks very much :)

Nice game! It's fun and the gameplay was well done! Good job

Developer

Thank you very much! I am happy you enjoyed it.

The Intro is way to long to be unscipable. But other than that the game is great.

Developer

Thanks for playing. Glad you liked it.

Hi very nice game, i manage to complete the game and that is rare, this game i like bomber man but in side scroll

Developer

That’s great to hear! I’m glad you enjoyed playing. I had loads of fun with your game too. Very colourful and super addictive. I’ll probably end up playing it a bunch! ☺️ Good job. 👍

Great job- the art and music is fantastic! Love the wailing guitars. The stealth gameplay is fun, although I made mincemeat of the bosses with my patented "lay 1000 traps" strategy. I cannot stress enough how great this art is- all the pointing guards being their own unique sprites is just so over the top cool. Amazing work!

I also love that you programmed in the leave-able building, I walked right out to see what it would do. The city looks gorgeous for a sprite most people might not see!

Also, and I cannot stress this enough, the feline development team is adorable.

Developer

Thank you so much! That’s so nice of you to say. Rosie (exophagious)  made all the art work and it was her first time making pixel art. We are both really happy with how it turned out. I don’t think we’d have got anywhere near finishing if we hadn’t stayed up for days on end but got there eventually! 😂 Thank you for taking the time to play it and I’m really glad you walked out of the lobby level too. I was wondering how many people would find that. We will be updating this game regularly after the voting ends so give us a follow idea you’d like to get notification soon when we change or add stuff. Thanks again for your comment. It’s made us very happy  😁

Followed!

Developer

Oh and the feline development team consists of Leonardo and Evelyn by the way. They are adorable! ☺️

Of all the games I played that's related to an "age rewinding" mechanic, I have got to say that this game is the best! I particularly enjoyed the art style as well as the music. Thank you for streaming our game on twitch and thank you for introducing me to this hidden gem of a game jam game. Congrats!

Developer

Thank you so much for your lovely comment. We really appreciate you taking the time to play it and giving us some feedback. We had a lot of fun making this one and we will be entering more jams in the future for sure. Streaming is great fun and it has been our pleasure to play everyone's games and meet all the devs too. We will try to play as many as we can before the voting ends and help get some smaller games noticed!
