Very interesting and simple story. Good use of ludonarrative to push the player into a panic as they search for the door. It's not a fun game and there isn't much potential for expansion but it says what it wants to say and makes you feel the way it wants you to feel. Good Job!

Fun ending! The jumping felt a little floaty though.

This was funny and kind of "deep" :D
The controls could be more precise, it feels like running on ice.. except this was so intended and I just not get why it should be this way.

However, this was surprisingly entertaining, well done!

I'll never see simple joyful platformers the same ever again! Thanks! :'D

A pretty interesting ending and twist, I like your interpretation of "only one". Good job on finishing the game! It would be better if the movement is less slippery.

Thanks for playing, hope you enjoyed it!

I agree with you about the slippery movement. It was something I couldn't get around to tweaking due to the time constraint. Also ironic since Mark made a video about platformer movement only a day or two before the jam started.

But.. you can't win ! :O
The joke about 99 lifes is funny tho ! I was like "I have plenty of try !" but nop !

The level design is a bit messy here. I know it's not what you focused on but it's a bit frustating if you try to open all the (fake) doors.

Nice submission anyway :)

Well this game made me feel some interesting emotions. I'm not sure if there was a way to beat the level but if there wasn't then thats actually pretty funny lol. Good submission!

Hahaha Juan Unavida. I dig the pun. The funeral was amazing (although maybe a bit too long). 

Great job!

Developer

Maybe he knows the Juan from your game :P

Submitted

The death of Juan was the best lol "OMG". I think everyone needs to try this and check out Juan!

Submitted

Juan must have been a real hero... xD

I thought the speach would never end :P

Really cool spin to match the theme :D

Submitted

Interesting!
It would be more interesting if it has an ending that let the player go into the room and get out immediately.
I'm just saying though.
Good work!

Wow! Twist ending...
