Really calming and well produced music, the games animations and style are really clean. It's simple but made so well.

Liked the music. Lever switch was only working when moving :/ But other than that good job.

Really good game, loved the music and the puzzles were fun to complete. Good job!

Good idea to develop on, however it's easy to get softlocked at some points. Some kind of checkpoint would have been appreciated. Apart from that, great job!

Developer

I will try to make the game better after the jam ends

Submitted

Really loved the game and level design. But the movement was a bit stiff and lever pulling was somewhat difficult as I had to press multiple times in order to activate it. You could actually make it a bit better by using some function which gets called as long as player is in lever’s proximity, like OnTriggerStay(). P.S. - I think vector art will really suit this game(since you are good with raster graphics..) :)

Developer

Its kind of a weird thing because i did actually use OnTriggerStay but it still stops after sometime, and i didnt find a solution for that.

Submitted

Ohh really fun take on the game jam theme. This is a very smart game. I especially enjoyed the characters. It's always good to see games with characters with personality and you really hit that ball out of the park. Enjoyed it loads. We tried integrating characters into our game too so do come over and rate ours as well ^_^

Calm Pan is the coolest of all! Love the design of the level and the personality you gave to the 3 friends. Very nice puzzle design too. Works perfectly.

Great game! Congratulations!

Submitted

Great job! The levers were a bit annoying to try to activate, and I had a glitch where I got near a hole and all game controls stopped responding, even reset, but I got out of it by clicking on another character. Otherwise I really liked the mechanic of switching between the different characters and I liked their return function. 

Submitted

So good, loved the dynamic of each character. Great intros too. This was a blast to play, I just thought that the gameplay felt a little slow to me,  I still enjoyed it! Great job

Really adorable game with some pretty cute little friends. But I believe big roadblock is also a friend. How would you ever cross inconvenient holes without him? Collisions were a bit off now and then I would always get confused why my friends would stop following. But great work with the pistons and the personalities. Good game all around!

Developer

I did the physics system by hand basically(And without acess to internet) because the one in Unity didnt work too well with grid movement , but i will try to fix the collisions after the jam ends. And Big roadblock is a very cool name!

Submitted(+1)

I love it! The whole game feels really well put together, and the visuals are so cute. Even though I ended up getting stuck, it was such a fun and relaxing game to play; great job on this one!

Submitted(+1)

Cute game! I had fun playing it but the collisions felt a little weird, I ended up stuck without being able to access a lever, but overall I enjoyed it. Good job!

Really fun puzzle game! I loved the art! Good job!

This was amazing! This has the potential to be supppppper awesome. I know that you had some obstacles but 3days to make the game is still pretty cool! I rated yours! :D

Thanks! Already rated yours too

Submitted

Yup, I saw thanks! :D

This was a very fun and relaxing games. I also laughed when I crushed Little Bib with a boulder by accident because I didn't know there was a death mechanic. I also really liked the character descriptions. I know this sounds weird but they reminded me of the old backs of cheez its boxes where they gave a description of the flavor by saying like the spicy cheese only takes limos. 

Developer

This game would have some more stages, with some storytelling that would explain more about the characters. Unfortunatly i didnt had that much time (My mother got sick) and no acess to internet the whole week, so i ended up taking 3 days to develop an grid-based physics system from scratch. Oh yeah, in your game you have a pushing system in a grid, how did you make it?

Submitted

Basically, I just moved the player across the tilemaps by weird intervals like 1.5 and 0.5. An easier way of doing it is just  .worldtoCell() with the tilemap

For the boxes, I stored them in a dictionary and then I checked if a box was on the tile by providing a Vector3 key. I then got each box by just continuing to go one up until there wasn't a box there. I then took that array, reversed it because the dictionary got mad because of duplicate keys. moved the boxes, and changed the keys to match the new positions by just creating new entries in the dictionary. If you want, I can post the code on GitHub.

Developer

Wow, i didnt even think about using a dictionary. Maybe i rebuild the basis of the game trying to do like that. I used colliders with overllap circle to check if there is or not a collider, and using colliders with grid based movement doesnt work that good.

Cool game but sometimes the buttons and levers don't work.

P.S. I would really appreciate it if you check out my game.

Developer

Sorry, i cant download any game on this PC :/ If it was Web i would definitely play i

Developer

And the levers just work when the simbol of the mouse appears on the right side of the screen

I soft lock myself ... The game is good but I think you have to let the player experience rather than him exactly what to do.

Developer

That why it have the "R" for reset. Being locked is one of the ways of losing the game, the other being smashed by a piston.
