This is such an amazing concept, and the execution is nothing short of perfect. I can't really see anything that you'd need to fix with the current iteration. However, as others have said, it's not quite as fun to build the level and play it yourself. I think this kind of thing would be perfect for asynchronous multiplayer. If you added the ability for one or more controllers to be used while the keyboard master makes the dungeon, I think it could be great here. Just spitballing ideas, but perhaps allowing the dungeon master to set off traps while others are running through it or having a mode where the dungeon builder gets a head start and the others then start running while he continues to build the dungeon ahead of them. Either way, great entry and for sure one of the coolest ideas in the jam!

Love love love this design - this is a fantastic concept for a multiplayer game, cooperative or competitive! I hope you flesh this out in the future! :)

gr8 game love the desighn and mechanics along with everyone else here this is great honestly get it on steam and make people pay a dollaar for it even at this stage its worth that much

i mean you could do local multiplayer you know have a friend make the track and you play it 

(ps. PUT IT ON STEEAAAEEEAAMMM)

Interesting concept but would be great with some actual levels, for now it feels more like a cool toy, super innovative stuff!

Super awesome concept. You should make this a multiplayer game, where one person designs the dungeon and the other has to beat it. Really cool visuals as well. Well done!

Developer

Thank you! I might have a Super Mario Maker type-deal one day.

Norton Security says it's a Trojan virus, which is disappointing because it looks good!

"The keyboard is both the game level as well as the controls.". Now THAT is an unexpected execution of the theme. Man, this is a really good game, a great game that I didn't spend much time on because creating levels for me to play isn't fun. This with multiplayer sessions of level creation + playing or simply level sharing would be cool :)

Thank you! I thought that a simple way of sharing levels would have the game output a string of 61 characters and send that to friends but it was low on the priority list lol. I might flesh it out one day and add like a global list of levels or something.

Good concept, good execution. There's not a lot of mechanics but what you do you do well.

Developer

Thank you!

I wanted to add a horizontal and vertical wall and a moving tile, and make it such that when you hold a key then it spins it around in 90 degrees to give more options but I was pressed for time, haha. If I'll come back to working on the mechanics then I'll definitely add those.

If you wanted to this game definitely has enough potential to be great if you fleshed it out into a full release.
