Absulutelly loved it! The concept is good, the gameplay is good, the levels are well designed, the learning curve is smooth!

Developer

Thank you for playing! glad you enjoyed it :D

Developer

Note for second player if using keyboard (WASD and I and O for buttons are the controls)

Posted a new version specifically for windows - Mac and Linux version coming shortly. Has multi-player support and slight touch ups to almost all levels. Purposely we posted it as a second file so as not to replace our game jam entry. (The cross platform Jar is the original game jam entry).

Here's a better time I did- I think just under 15 minutes is do-able.

If anyone is playing get's stuck- we have a series of walkthrough videos posted:

Finally beat the full game. With the time crunch I never personally finished all the levels together myself-and I actually never fully completed stage 5- Kyperbelt- those last two levels were hard! About 85 of the 94 deaths were the final two levels!

Here was my  time/deaths.

Developer

haha i tried to go for speed and i ended up dying a lot more than i wanted to

What a beautiful game! The graphics are pretty and I love the sound of the brain crawling around on its little feet.

Developer

I get a "SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00000000, pid=11824, tid=0x6f778b40" on a ubuntu 32 bit with JDK 8...

Too bad, the screenshots look nice :-)

Developer(+1)

I'll see if we can't find an ubuntu machine to test on. We've tested on Mac and Windows - but not on linux desktop- however we're using LibGDX cross platform game engine (open source), so I was hopeful it might just work (always test, ha!)

I ran it on Ubuntu 17.10, 64 bit with OpenJDK 1.8  and it worked like a charm. Can I help testing somehow?

Developer

The fact that it worked is interesting - so it does run on some linux builds then which is good! Two main differences I see is OpenJDK and 64 bit.

Wow man, this is amazing. I love the way this game plays, the sound also adds to the mood. MY favorite game so far. Did you create your own art ?

Developer

Thanks! Yes- we did do the art - we have an artist as part of the team- he always does great stuff! Also Village Sound in Halifax did the music and sound effects for the game. I agree - I think the music fit the game really well- and the brain squishy sound worked out really well.

Great work on this. A proper platformer/puzzle game that you can sink your teeth into. The controls took some getting used to for me, but I had a blast with it all the same. Maybe I'll make it to the end one of these days!

When playing on a Mac - if you can't launch the Jar (security warning) - hold down control key and right click on the file to select open. This will give you the option to run the game.

Press ESC, Q or T on keyboard / (Menu button on Xbox controller) to self destruct and restart the level- useful when you get stuck!

Arrow keys to move. X to jump. Space bar or "C" to have your brain exit the current Cyborg. Jump onto a Cyborg with your brain to take control of the Cyborg.

A few bugs have been found post submission...in general restarting the game seems to fix them- just remember to hit continue when you restart if you run into a bug.

Game counts your deaths and time as you complete it (and saves your progress). Anyone who completes- post an image of your victory screen ;)
