Wow, truly phenomenal game. The art, polish, music, writing, gameplay...everything fit together to serve a greater purpose and make this feel like a full experience. Fantastic job!

Probably the highest imaginable praise for a little jam team. Thank you so much for playing! <3

REAL unique artstyle, fun dialog too

Developer

Thank you for playing and the kind words!

It’s not loading :(

Developer

I'm sorry to hear that. Have you tried the standard fixes - different browser, clearing cache, etc?

That second to last puzzle really drove home how challenging life can be. I love the music and sound, and I especially loved the white owl! 
Also, does the player character bob their head along to the music or am I imagining it? 

Developer(+1)

Yes, totally. And it was totally intentional. The script finds the tempo of the music track and dynamically adjusts the animation rate. 

Unrelated, I have never told a lie in my life.

(it's coincidental if it happens!)

Developer

What I meant to say was... thanks for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

The game is easy to understand and tells you the story at the same time, the puzzles are interesting. At first I thought that the holes were walls, but the game is very good

Developer

Thanks for playing!

Hey ! I had a lot of trouble to play, I think it’s my computer. I can’t go to the level 2 so, I’m not going to vote. Everything seems to work fine for the other players, unlucky for me :(

But the menu is really cool and sweet so I’m pretty sure it’s a very good game :)

Developer(+1)

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that! 

If you have time, please DM me on discord (CFHM#9742) and I would love to troubleshoot with you to see if we can get it working.

It’s ok mate, my friends who did the jam with me are planning to play everygame and I will look at your game ;) I will also try to fix my PC, it would be really sad to not be able to play all the games! :(

Really fun game actually. Got a bit confused when it mentioned press R to go back to fly or something. I thought I had to go back to a previous level haha. Looks really good, got me thinking quite a bit on some of the puzzles. If I had to change something it might be the order of the levels. The Fox asking you to bring him his favourite thing was far easier then having to fetch the teddy bear quest :).

Developer

Ha  yeah. The fox level was added in the last few minutes before uploading. At least that was my excuse for "extremely easy unless you overthink it." We were hoping some folks might think it's "too easy" and try to solve for the other elements. 

Good feedback. Thank you for playing!

Not sure what I was but I'm too scare to ask :D I liked how you took basic gameplay mechanics and broke them up into story bits. First time I was given the option to jump I died because I thought I could run and jump and didn't realize it's one or the other but not at the same time :)

Developer

Good feedback on the jump. I was hoping the grid-based movement would lend itself to explaining the jump better, but perhaps I should have designed a better way to teach it. 

The character is supposed to be blank/featureless, but I can see how they look a bit alien/monstrous!

Submitted(+2)

To me it looks like a centaur with a giant head instead of a torso. Nothing wrong with that 😉

I could tell I was in for a treat from just looking at the title screen. Nice aesthetic, quality music, attention to detail with slick menu options. The gameplay lived up to my first impressions. Everything worked rather well. The puzzle difficulty ramped up at a nice pace and yet the game was very forgiving so if I got something incorrect, I was able to jump right back into the level within a handful of seconds.  My complements to the team! 

Developer

Thank you so much for the kind words! That made my day :)

Looked really good, sounded really good, played well and nice puzzles, well done.

Relaxing and surprisingly well polished puzzle game! 

The puzzles are well laid out. The game is also very thematic with the use of the aesthetically pleasing pixel art and well suited sound effects. Very well done!

Developer

Thanks for checking it out Bamimoth! Glad you enjoyed it :)
