This has a great idea, and the art is amazing! The floaty physics and lack of a single player mode did hurt the experience for me though. All in all, good game!

Thank you!! :) 

Yes, we tried to tweak the physics as well as we could, but we eventually had to prioritize other elements, I think the scope was a bit too large for a Jam, at least for us! When we chose GMS2, I had forgotten how clunky it actually is to work with, especially when you're used to unity... Next jam will definetily be in unity!

I like the design of the game, it fits perfectly with the theme of the jam. A well done game, congratulations.

Developer

Having and AI rather than requiring two players might be better for a jam. The backgrounds and UI were absolutely astounding! Fantastic art! I shot one arrow and couldn't figure out what to do from there, didn't seem to be a way to get more arrows.

Developer

Thanks for your feedback!:) 

I don't think an AI would work as a fun experience for this type of sandbox death match, but we are aware that most people will not be able to try the game with another person, which is a shame, but we are planning on making it playable against opponents online :) 

Regarding the arrow selection, you should be able to select a new arrow by pressing S or DOWN when the arrow-selection box is spinning over your head!

The art is amazing. It's a shame that the gameplay is lacking complexity.

Thanks for the feedback!! :)
Yes, we had planned for more arrow-types to be implemented, which would give a larger variety to the game.
Might have spent too much time focusing on the wrong details, but if you don't mind, try again in a week when we can change the submission and deliver the experience we imagined!

For sure. I will.
