Interesting art style and music! Shame that it's a little bit too short, but considering this is a Game Jam, it's pretty understandable. Maybe in the future you could add more than one raft per level to make things a bit more challenging?

Anyways, congratulations!

Your game has great presentation! The art and music were well done and kept my interest. However, I feel like the game part of the game was a little lacking. Not bad, but lacking. Maybe you could have had the crew in seperate rafts in an open enviornment with some sort of a tracker with a distance at the edge of the screen. That would help flesh out the game a little without requiring any new art assets.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah the art turned out well so I am planning on doing a post jam version so that is a really helpful comment. I agree the end is a bit lacking I had much more intense one planned but the rest took a bit longer than I hoped.

That's fine then. I had to cut my games end out too! It just ends with some text on a black screen explaining the ending.

Great art, level took less than 30 seconds to complete, and how does this fit the theme? A good game, just too short. Good luck in the jam.

Hope you get the chance to try out my entry as well, thanks :)

Hey thanks for playing. The genre is shoot em up but with the shooting mechanic removed.  I was aiming for a more complex 'boss battle' at the end but this is where it got to in the time.

Interesting idea; I found a good collision system, but had a hard time to understand the goal (before reading the description)
