I can't get it to work on my Mac, OS  version 10.13.6, Java 1.8.0_181.

Here's the stack:

Developer

The game is good and it was made in Java. Very Nice dude :).

The game is 3D? or is 2D with perspective 3D? It's made me curious a bit.

Developer

Thank you, glad you like it :)

It is real 3D ;)

Very nice! I love the helm on the hud. I very much agree that you should continue with a post-jam version :).

Cool, thank you so much :)

Quite fun and could be expanded into a rpg where you sail arround a world fighting pirates. Only issue is that it looks too good to be on a game boy. I would also add a label in the start where it says "Press enter to start"

Developer

Thanks for playing and your feedback ;)
You make a good point with the label on the start screen. Yes, the graphics are too good for GB - I just had this idea laying around and I wanted to make something in real 3D.

Maybe I will expand this in a post-jam version...
