Dude, wow. Really good stuff. I love the concept, and it's just really fun to play. bang up job. I did get deadlocked on level 4 i think when i ended up with only two snakes who could only move onto opposite colored squares. Other than that, sup smooth experience.

Developer

Thanks so much Bobby, we appreciate it! Share your game too so I can check it out :)

Awesome work!! .... Its beyond the level of game jam entry.... 

you really are very good at this... 

Developer

Wow, thanks so much, we really appreciate it! I have a tab of your game saved and I'm looking forward to trying it out :)

I would love to see this concept explored further, with more maps and unit types. Great job!

Developer

Thanks so much, your game was awesome too!

Submitted(+2)

That was such a cool board game type submission! Really dug the art and music! I wanna see a full game with a ton of scenarios!

Developer

Thanks so much, we really appreciate you taking the time to play! We're already talking about how we're going to flesh it out and what platforms to target :) Drop a link to your game so I can check it out!

This would make an excellent time killer on android or IOS for sure! I could see myself sitting at work playing this for way too long!

Thanks for your interest in mine too! Here it is! Hope you enjoy!

Platformer where you can only have one ability active at a time, and can only use it once per room! Also one hit and your dead ;) Hope you like it!

Developer

Alright, gonna check this out once I'm back at my PC, on my Mac laptop right now :/

Wow, thanks so much, we really appreciate it. And thanks for the links, I want to check both of those out :D

This is way beyond gamejam levels of polish, adheres to the theme and is a lot of fun. Congrats!

Developer

Thanks so much! We had a blast making it :)

Really good and unique!

The only useful feedback I can give in case you want to continue this project is that each pice should have a different color to make things more readable at a glance. In terms of readability you could also highlight the "unsafe" tiles when the player is making a move.

As a post below already said, this game is very likely to be featured, yes. Very polished, unique, and fits the theme well. Well done!

Developer(+2)

Totally agree! I managed to make the stone tiles a different color to signify that they weren't interactable, but I ran out of time before I could do a final pass on color & readability.

An excellently crafted game! Between the slick feel of the game, the rustic aesthetic, and the thoughtful puzzles, the only improvement I can think of is adding more types of warriors! Great job!

Developer

Thanks so much! We're certainly excited to expand on this idea quite a bit :)

Submitted(+2)

Wow, this game is incredible! I don't think I've ever seen a game like this before. I think this game has a ton of potential outside of this jam, so I'd love to see it made into a full game! Every encounter was like a fine tactical puzzle. Sometimes it felt like I lucked out due to the AI choosing a suboptimal move, but that's still fine. I don't have any constructive criticisms. This game looks and feels great to play! Great work!

Developer

Wow, thanks so much Abhi! The AI was one of the hardest parts to nail down for sure, we plan on going back to it and get it all just right haha.

We had a bit of inspiration from this ancient norse game called Hnefatafl, there's a great app for it on mobile if you're curious.

Your game was aaa_groove right? That was a blast, way to go! I gave you a good rating <3

Submitted(+1)

Whoah I've never heard of the "Tafl" genre of games, this is really cool. I'll definitely check out Hnefatafl.

Yes, I made aaa_groove! Haha glad you liked it!

Good job

Developer

Thanks Luca!

Everything was great about this game, I played through most of the levels just because I was interested in what it would throw at me next. Really solid entry and a great tile based board game idea!

Developer

Thanks so much, we're really glad you liked it!

Very interesting idea, and an overall well made game. It forces you to think at least one step ahead to not get yourself trapped. The harder levels seemed unbeatable but there might've been something I've missed.

Developer

Thanks so much! Did you catch the fact that you could possess any piece by clicking on it? A lot of people are missing that because all the controls are on our page, not in the game XD

Submitted(+2)

I loved the written description, artwork, and music. Very well tied to the theme! A little problem I ran into: I chose a Knife Fight and got to a point where the game was stale, and I wasn't given an option to continue. Made me think that having a reset button would be very nice (and some rule to avoid stale games as well)!

We also made a game for the GMTK2019, and would love to hear what you think about it!

If you think you have the courage & wits to help the Juan and Only Jelly Knight recover his human form, a worthy challenge awaits.

Don't forget to rate our game here!

Developer(+1)

There is a reset button! 'R' will reset the current stage. It's mentioned in the description, but we didn't have time to make an in-game instructions panel. Thanks for playing!

Submitted(+2)

Nice game! I really liked the artwork and style as well.

Developer

Hey, thank you so much for checking it out!

Submitted(+2)

wow! This game get pretty complex, the game design here is very well thought!

if you have time, check out my game : https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/463767

Thanks so much man, we really appreciate it! Looking forward to checking yours out as well :)

Wow! Looks like a finished project! Graphics, sound, UI 5/5 Great job!

Developer

Thanks so much for playing Alexey! I'm glad you enjoyed it, we had a blast making it.

Very polished games, although i didnt know you are allowed to switch place with other card. Was kinda surprised that i could change position with card on side table lol. 

Developer

Thanks so much for playing! Yeah, I really wish we had the time to put an instructions window into the game itself, but it baaarely got finished in time as it is haha XD

This is probably one I'll see on the video, I understand why you were so confused by the lack of views. Its hard to get noticed but once you do, you'll pop off! I could not for the life of me figure out Ambush and gave up, much later I figured out the pieces on the side let you switch your piece on the board. That was design genius in my opinion! It opened up so many new possibilities right away! Amazing work on design, art, juice/feel. I'm so happy I participated in this Jam, I'm looking forward to whatever you do next! This is inspirational for me. Could you tell me more about the team? or did you do it all by yourself? And your background etc, I would love to just talk haha. 

Once again absolutely amazing job, I'll push the game where I can so it makes it to where it deserves to be! <3

Developer

WOW, that's so kind of you Rahul! It was me and my friend Nate (madgxov, definitely follow him because he's the genius). I did design and audio, and Nate did programming, design, and art.

I'm glad you liked the possession mechanic! That's a big part of our "only one" theme. You only possess one piece at a time, and then the victory condition is to be the only piece left on the board.

I've run through all of them and can confidently say that every level is solvable haha! I'm so incredibly happy to hear that this inspired you. We had so much fun working on it. Your game was the aaa_GROOVE one right? I loved that one, and I'm leaving it on my desktop :)

Also if you want to talk more follow me on twitter @neilquillen!

Submitted(+1)

Mine was called I exist, but I played the aaagrove and it was pretty nice too xD


And as for the mechanics, I did not read the discription because I played it through the rating page. But it makes sense now. I beat most of the levels without possessing any tiles!!! I thought that was the hole idea haha. But I definitely needed the core for the later puzzles. Once again props to you guys. It's an amazing game!

Developer(+1)

Oh cool, link your game here so I can try it!

Here you are, I would love to get feedback!

Hey I thought that the game looked and played really well for any game let alone a game jam game!

Developer

Hey, thanks so much, that means a lot! I saw your comment on my post and I'll play your game as well :)
