Interesting game. I included it in my GMTK Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Graphics, sounds and music really make this game! Gameplay is enjoyable too but the slots at first are soo limited and jumping and running are basically mandatory so there is a lot of backtracking while collecting the power units.

Developer

Thanks for your feedbacks on the entry, I really appreciate it!

Congratulations, you made one of the best games of the jam.  

It is very easy to make the game unwinnable if you're not paying attention, but that never became a problem for me at least.  I do think that limited control/inventory slots is a little hampered by the fact that most of the upgrades you get are absolutely essential (you really can never drop your legs or jumping, so already 2 slots are sort of permanently fixed), so picking up a blood canister never really makes any sense.  Though the possibility space for your inventory does improve considerably once you get the kick boots, since now you really no longer need the running boots.  Obviously there's only so much you can do in a jam, but it might've been interesting to have water, where you can equip a fin or breathing apparatus, but now you no longer need to have legs or jumping, thus freeing up space for other things.

But anyway, one of the best made, most interesting, and most fun games in the jam.  Perfect score.

Definitely one of the best games of the jam! Really like the graphics, sounds and mechanics. I like everything about it. :)


I was so commited on finishing it that even when I jumped over the screen, I re-started and did it again! Very good job! I hope more people will find this gem!

Thank you for your compliments, I really appreciate it!
Also I apologize for letting that out of bounds glitch loose, I hope that didn't ruined your experience.. Should've noticed that thing earlier 😖

Oh.. In most cases it probably would.. but this one.. Just breathe some air in.. air out.. and again! faster on the second run :P Very good :)

Wooow, what an unexpected discovery. I'm glad I found out your game, it really is a cool game with smart ideas. The art and music only compliment the gameplay. And the choice of colors was great too, they all blend together so nicely with the animations and the overall look. Keep it up!

Fun game, made it to the end I found a spare extra key the didn't unlock any extra slots, so bonus?

Developer

Hey, thanks for playing my game! I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed my game.
Also yeah, I've placed some extra key slot upgrades for safety measures just in case of others being out of reach.

Such an amazing jam entry, maybe my favourite so far! I failed on my first try because I left my legs on the ledge after getting sprint, but on my second try I made it. this was super cool, seriously! I would pay money for this if it wasn't free ;)

Developer(+1)

Hey, I sincerely appreciate you for playing my game & the feedback! I'm really glad to hear that you've enjoyed my game.
Also damn, I should have made a better gameplay routes to prevent the users from softlocking the game with essential upgrades being out of reach 😅

Very nice aesthetic with both sound and art design. I like the animation of the monsters, as well. Gameplay is pretty neat, I really like it! Great work!

Developer(+1)

Thank you, I really appreciate your kind words!

As usual, I like your game. It has a peculiar idea, sylish graphics and fun gameplay. However, absence of gamepad support kills me.

Developer

Thanks! Also yeah.. I would LOVE to include controller support but I couldn't figure out how to integrate this whole 'key-inventory' mechanics with the controller :<

I also expected 120fps, customizable resolution,  and a mobile port.
