Superb game. The art style is simple yet effective. Reminds me of Iji or Homestuck. The game was easy to get into, and the surprisingly high number of different gameplay modes kept the game fresh throughout the run.

The way you synced the music to the actions in the game was also really great, like in the skiing part.

I only have two complaints. It's difficult to know where the hitboxes are, and the game isn't centered on the screen in fullscreen mode.

Good job!


Developer

Thank you so much!!  (also i plan to fix both of those things soon) :D

Great game! Very funny, the coordination between the gameplay and music is great, cinematic and charming, great job!

Developer

Thank you!! :D

You synced the game play with the music! πŸ’™ The variety is definitely a plus, hearkening to  Incredible Crisis. πŸŒ‹

I loved that game! -i think i actually thought about it while I was working on this! xD

Love this, really unique and creative implementation of the theme and the music fits xD Great work!

Developer

Thank you!! :D

Wow, this was manic. In the best possible way. A bizarrely-cinematic collection of minigames loosely-themed around bullet-dodging, this is probably the singular most-unique game I've played of this entire jam. I like it, a lot! <3 

Developer(+1)

Lol very awesome of you to say -thank you so much!! :D

Creative and funny game with a lot of content, even though it's not much of a bullet hell and is probably a better fit for another jam. Had a lot of fun, though. Nice game!

Submitted(+1)

This game is fantastic! Audio is top notch and visuals are really good. I loved the story a lot and your sense of humor is brilliant. I laughed all the way through. Great job! :)

Developer

Thank you so much! :D

Developer

Thank you!!! :D

This is brilliant! I'm blown away! The comedy is pure gold, and the synced music makes it even better!

Developer

Thank you so much!! :D

Wow this is a trip and a half, I love it! The sheer amount of content jammed into the game in such a short time is very impressive, and I love the artstyle. I wish there were sound effects, I feel that's the only thing this chaos salad is missing 

Developer

lmfao chaos salad -well said! xD -and thank you!! :D

This is a really interesting game! I love the art style and overall feel of the game and how you incorporated the theme and bullet hell genre :D

Developer

Thank you!! :D

This is one of the interesting game  I have ever played in game jams.This was like a movie trailer.I loved it.

Developer

Thank you!! :D

Crazy good... insane amount of play modes for the short time of the jam.... and then the on-the-musics-beat gameplay!  *chef's kiss*    Very very good job!

Developer

xD thank you!!!

Submitted(+1)

OMG THAT'S AMAZING!
this is so fun and beautiful at same time that I really wanted to see how it was going to end. After some too many tries, I finally got it and I'm more than delighted.  You made such an amazing job with the story, art and music that overcame all of my expectations. Keep it up, man 10/10

Developer

Thank you so much!! :D

This is awesome. Changing the gameplay every 10 seconds really helps keep it interesting. And all the little gags and general storyline is what enables that. The attacks being synced to the beat really helps with dodging them. Though there are some patterns with bullets that are way too fast. At one point the browser version slows down due to too many bullets.

This is a great game as it is, but you could definitely expand on it too…

Developer(+1)

Thank you so much!!  I actually had to cut about a minute and a half of scenes out of it but planning to polish it up and expand on it for sure after the jam is over! :D

Submitted(+1)

Holy, this game is sooo good, I really haven't expected so much diversity in a single playthrough. Also it's rare that you see story driven (and also music driven) games in jams. Really nice job!

Developer

Thank you so much!! :D

Submitted(+1)

Now this is what I would call a cinematic adventure! It's a ton of fun and great to see all that all the action is connected with a story and nice visuals!

It was a ton of fun! xD

Developer(+1)

Thank you so much!! xD

This game is great. It's fast-paced and crazy. It's very clear when you lose a life. Hitbox is nice and small, but the game is still quite difficult.

Developer(+1)

Thank you!! :D

Very stupid in a very good way, made me smile while playing. Impressive amount of scenarios and work put into the visuals considering how little time you had. The gameplay itself is very janky though and a lot of the threats aren't telegraphed at all leading to an unpleasant kind of trial & error which also kinda defeats the punch the game has since redoing parts makes them lose their humor and highlights the game mechanics which are lacking.

Developer

Thank you and I was trying to avoid that kind of frustration but was running out of jam time to polish it and needed sleep -i look forward to making such updates once the jam is over.

Holy freaking hell ! 

Well this was quite a ride, got stuck dying at the ski slope but still i had a blast :p

That guy chasing you is like the burgernator XD 

"he can't be reasoned with can't be bargained with doesn't know pity or remorse, and he will absolutely never stop ! Untill you are dead... and he gets that 50 cts off that burger"

Ok so bad joke aside, i really enjoyed the game even if i couldn't reach the end, graphics are cool and i like how you made the same gameplay (avoiding shots) being fresh every time with the constant perspective changes, the pacing is insane in a good way, to me this feels like a mix of warioware mini games with the attitude of old flash games, with the silly nonsensical premise and bam you're into the action no questions asked.

Congrats ! :)

lmfaoo thank you!! xD

Had a good laugh with your entry i like random silly premises like that, and sorry about the lame joke but that's all i could think about seeing that random super determined antagonist :p
