  • This game is really fun and very well made. I managed to finish playing game despite me getting very confused with controlling two different types of characters. The graphics would just need to be tweaked.

I definitely enjoyed the game. I could see a bit improvements on a few things

A thing that could be improved on is the gameplay, it's good but I am just a bit confused as what to do. The game puts you in this environment but doesn't really provide a sort of objective. and I think that part you would've nailed it.

One thing I enjoyed was the sound effects, they added nicely to the theme and environment of the game. But the audio does play a really big part of a game because it's what actually give the player that kind of feel and that environment and I think you've absolutely done a good job on it.

Anyways, that all I had to say. Overall, it was nice and well done game

. I love the mechanics, fits well with what you were trying to provide and I think that this game definitely has a lot of potential. With the right things you can turn this game into something great.

Thanks! We didn't want to spend too much time on audio so we just recorded ourselves. One of my team-mates recorded the button noise with his mouth and it totally works!

I appreciate your  comment. I would have loved more time to refine the level and introduce more mechanics but we ended up keeping it simple. Thank you for playing :)

Really cool and innovative game. Reminds me a little about ibb and obb. Just to be clear the ending screen is when you see the two cats with the rainbow right. That end lvl was hard but I managed to win it after some retries. I felt like the spikes that came up from the floor was too fast in my first retries but it is definitely doable. Nice music and cool cats. If you want to continue on this game I would suggest on changing how the level looks like. Grey boxes are not that funny. All boxes weren't aligned aswell and you should either change some levels or the camera or something because there was moments when the white cat was really far away from the black so I would have to wait for the white cat to come back to see something. This happened in the elevator part in one level for example.

Overall cool and innnovative game.

This feedback is very helpful! We were worried the spikes were too fast at the end. Maybe after the jam we can tweak that and make it slightly less difficult (though we intended for it to be difficult). The distance between the two can be an issue. We wanted them to have to stick together in order to utilize whichever one has the light (it switches to the dark character when the background is white), but when you get too far away it is an issue. I remember suggesting that if you get too far apart we trigger a death because the point is to be near each other and cooperate, we just never had the time to add it.
