Very incredible art! The concept is really neat and the music is relaxing. The clay cakes looks amazing.

Developer(+1)

I'm glad you like the cake! It wasn't at first going to be part of the game, just something I made for fun while waiting for the design to finalize.  :D

I think the style in this game has a lot of potential. I would love to see several visual variations on each element just to break up the patterns a bit. The animations are very clean, the art is awesome, and I would love to see where you go with this! 

Developer

There's definitely always room for improvement!  I can see adding more tiles and levels for sure. However so far we have been very bad at adding on to any of  our game jam games after the jam is over, so we'll see! :P

Really enjoyed this! great job. I loved the animation. the puzzles could have been harder, but it felt like a good pace if the game was going to keep going and you had more time to make more levels.

Developer(+1)

Thanks for playing! yea, I think this is the first game where we finally found a good trajectory for pacing, but we just flat ran out of time to get more levels in. We started work on Level 5 (the second to last one) with 2 hours to go and only got it finished, tested, and fully integrated with about 20 minutes to spare.  Thanks again

Lovely puzzle game with a unique style. I really enjoyed interacting with the environment. :)

Developer

Thanks! Feels like this jam's theme just begs for environment interaction. so I am glad to hear that.

Loved the claymation, always in love with craftmanship! The music and sound are very fitting, the gameplay is simple and fun! Super cute ending! 

Developer(+1)

I'm glad you like the claymation. It was a bit of a risk doing it as I wasn't really setup for it at the beginning of this jam. :P  Music, sound, and ending  were pull together last minute(as usual), but I'm happy to hear most people thought they work well!

Fun little puzzle platformer! The claymation isn't just a gimmick; it legitimately looks really really good. Massive kudos for creativity!

I might have preferred a mechanic where you could CHOOSE which element you want to leave behind you, from the elements you have at your disposal. At first, I was stressing out over which order I picked up the guys, because I thought I'd be unable to solve the puzzles if I picked them up in the wrong order. It ended up not really mattering, but I'd still like to offer that possibility for your consideration!

Developer

Thanks for playing! yes, we are definitely considering expanding the game (more levels and ability to safely discharge your elements so you can pick them up in a different order (and then more levels that require some advanced tactics)).  We also had a 'Seeker' lemon that homed onto the player location which we really wanted to get into the game but ran out of time.

and yea, I think the claymation turned out really well. thanks!

Beautiful and original art style. Good musics and a fun game to play in browser. Congratulations, mate!

Developer

Thanks! we were a bit nervous that the game wouldn't play in html5 very well, but fortunately everything worked out. Thanks for playing!

Thanks, always good to hear people had fun playing. :)

Great art style! Did you make all of this and clay?

Developer

Thank you! Everything that looks like clay in the game I made from scratch and animated under a camera. The puffball characters were pictures taken of real pompoms with 2d animation added  overtop.
