Really cool mechanic. The game feels juicy af but the controls were inconsistent at times. I had a great time with this one!

Original take on the theme. But I found the player is often punished for not knowing the layout of the level. It's often better to die a few times until you see the whole level. I think it would be better if the effect of pushing the "down" key was more noticable (more things made visible).

Cool game! Reminds me INK a lot (another game with the exact same design but with a cube).

There's a good learning curve and a good amount of levels for a jam.

Good job! :)

Submitted

Damn, thats a nice game! Reminds me a bit of unfinished swan! But that is only the basic concept. The execution is excellent! Its like painting a beautiful picture, most often with your own failure! Would definetly play this if it were a full game! I also love the follow through on the player! (The wobble when moving!) Even if i dont see the connection fully to the theme of the jam, this is one of my favorites so far! Good work!

Submitted

Nice! That visual effect is so very cool!

Submitted

I loved the Idea of the player painting the level and thereby learing more about it's layout with every death. However I have to admit that i don't really see any meaningfull use of "only one".

Love and painting color art design and it sounds quite juicy. Thought it would be more polished if adding more juicy sound related to painting and other things.

What a polished game!Oozing with color and style. Great Design.

I see great design! Interesting way you did dying in this game: it is helpful because it gives us vision!

This was a fun experience, very polished! Congratulations!  I would love if you checked my game too, if you haven't already!

I really liked this game! It's really clever that even dying is helpful because it makes the level more visible. You're so quick to respawn that it rarely feels annoying to die, straight back into the action. I'm not quite sure how it fits the theme though? You've only got one player, but that's pretty common in platformer games.

Great job either way, especially for submitting a day early!

Great Level Design, the whole thing feels complete.  Nice job!!!

I don't know what is the conection with only one

Submitted

Really cool game!

Submitted

A fun challenge! Sometimes all of the splatters seemed to lower the responsiveness of the controls, but not completely sure if that's what caused it. Good level design too :)

Submitted

Like I said in the community post, it's amazing. A restart button would have been nice, though. I also like the celeste like quick restart in death.

Submitted

Really cool, loved it visually. A bit of a tenuous link to the theme of the jam? Nice work though - really like the screen transitions too, really fluid!

Submitted

Cool game! It reminds me of INK, don't know if you know it :) The levels got really clever, I liked the way you were toying with expectations through the levels! Also, the character movement and animation was great! My only gripe was that small delay between landing and being able to jump again, the rest is just great! Enjoyed the small texts about development!

Submitted

It's a marvelous game with great iedea and realistion. I love visual effects, levels and mechanichs. It's so smooth and fun. I wnat to see it released in the future!

Submitted

It is pretty fun and has a lot of content, but I can't give it a very high originality rating as it is basically just Ink but with a rectangle instead of a square.
