Funny game! I included it in my GoGodot Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Developer

Thank you for playing our game. We appreciate it :)

Very fun, and creative! It feels very polished! Nice job!

Developer

Appreciate it. We did a huge crunch on the last day to polish the game and it seems it was worth every minute.

Bro i loved it, really good and funny, the story and the cutscenes are super cool. This have a lot of potential of becoming a full blown project and going viral. Really good ^^

Developer(+1)

Thanks bro, I'm glad you liked it. We worked really hard on the story and cutscenes to achieve our vision.

The eating sound was hilarious:)

Thank you. I've been practicing eating and the sound of it every day.

This game is amazing! I really like it! I laughed for three minutes and at the end I felt like a bad person hahaha!

Developer

Great to hear you enjoyed it. Don't feel bad, Jansson finally got closure :D

Submitted(+2)

hahaha great stuff! fun to play nice job, that intro was funny, i did not see that coming hahaha 

Developer(+1)

Great to hear you had fun playing the game. I think our story writer nailed the monologue for the game.

For some moments, I hope Janssons is a cube lol! I like this game so much! Its a very fun, humor and challenging game! I really want to help Janssons to find what he wants, but i just can't get over the glass wall  at second stage :(. 

My suggestion, maybe the cake should have increase more blood sugar for Mr Janssons, so I will have more time to help Janssons~

Developer(+1)

Thank you for the feedback. Turning Jansson into different shapes is a great idea for a powerup :D

After more playtesting I agree with the difficulty of the second stage. We did add more bloodsugar gain in the internal playtestings, but maybe some cakes on level 2 could be a little closer to the starting position.

Just the right amount of challenging for me. It's definitely on the weird side but super fun to play.

Developer(+1)

Good to hear that the difficulty was on point and you had fun. Then we achieved our vision :)

Submitted(+2)

I loved the idea of knocking every object in the game even walls. Yes I destroyed a wall while pushing poor Jansson. Very catching game. Well used 3D environment and controls.

Developer

I'm happy you liked it. Destructable environment became one of the core mechanics after Jansson couldn't fit inside the house anymore.

Wonderfully absurd and a blast to play! Had some really good humor and gameplay!

I do have one question: How did you get the mouse cursor to be locked in the browser? I couldn't figure that out! 

Developer(+1)

Please save your questions to the end of the tour ;)

Okey, but in all seriousness... I used the following Input functions from the characters script to capture and release the cursor. Hope this helps.

Input.set_mouse_mode(Input.MOUSE_MODE_CAPTURED)
Input.set_mouse_mode(Input.MOUSE_MODE_VISIBLE)

This belongs in the top tier, you could make a full game out of this.  "NO Jansson! His bloodsugar must be low, Get him some cake quickly!"

Thank you. Janssons Temptation 2 confirmed?  ;)

Hello! Very nice Stanley Parable vibes from this game. I laughed at the cutscenes and liked the aesthetic of the game. Finding the cakes on the parking lot level was kinda hard given that I couldn't see much while pushing Jansson around. Maybe a minimap with cake indicators would work well.

Very well done man, congrats!

Developer

Thank you for playing our game. We tried to hint the positions of cakes in the cutscenes, but the minimap sounds like a good idea if we plan on growing the game.

Hahahahaha I’m dying that was so good and so funny! Every time Jansson fell over I found myself saying the dialogue along with the narrator!! 

You can really tell how much love and work went into the game. Growth pervades every aspect and the juxtaposition of serious development and complete nonsense just kept making the other that much better!! The gameplay was fun and intuitive and made you want to keep going! It even made me want to check my blood sugar after playing and I don’t even need to! Really great game and so much fun! Well done! (:

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much for you feedback. We didn't even think that our game could raise awarness of low bloodsugar levels :D

Hilarious, and fun – great job! Love the intro to each level, and the voiceover.

Haha, this is so much fun! The voice over and music really add to it. Well done!

Happy to hear that. Our story writer selected most of the music and I think he made an excellent job.
