Let people know how long this project has been going, or share a bit of its history.
This game was an unfinished game jam project we started this November. As we are totally inexperienced in game development, we totally missed the deadline. But we haven't stopped working on it since then and made a very productive sprint in January.

Hope you like it 🐛

I like what I see so far.  When I first clicked to start, my worm faceplanted into a rock 1 tile below the top of the screen.  It took me a while to figure out the game isn't frozen and I was just game over.  The inputs aren't always registering and I notice some image flashing around his butt.  I'm guessing some restructuring of the scripts would improve the performance.  

The artwork is quite nice, and the warping music fits well with the atmosphere (and the dying flowers, haha).

Developer

Thanks for your feedback. The flashing is a known issues that I haven't figgured out yet. A small instruction screen when first played would be a good idea though!

Super polished work, particularly the art!

The controls felt a bit unresponsive given that the grid is quite large, caching the inputs and using them as soon as possible would help.


Good Work!

Art and music were great, the whole things very polished! Screenshake was a bit much though. Great game!

Really liked the visuals, and the character animations were super smooth. I think a little more direction would be nice, as I didn't entirely know what to do, but I still had fun. nice work!

Love the weird music and the controls reminded me of SNAKE a lot, but responding latency was an issue during critical turns... cool art btw. Very nice app! ^ ^

Thanks! Yes, there are some dead spots where the worm is not respoding to your input because the moving animation has already started playing.

thank you so much! the control issue is known — but too bad: we couldn't work it out within the jams limits.

@Stefan @Christian Wischnewski It's no worries really, guys... I still enjoyed my time with the app regardless. I know it's not SNAKE, but it still gave me nostalgic feelings, which is awesome! Keep making great games guys! ^ ^

Love the music :)
Sometimes the worm is glitching a bit and control is freezing.

Developer
