Cute and fun! I only wish it could have been longer. And that the full bar boost was a little more intuitive (I think my timing was off or something).

(Timestamp 13:05)

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! I will think how to improve boost. Right now it adds like 25% of full energy, so you need to eat more food until there is an indication that bar is full (sound and lightning icon scale up). Anyways, there's still room for improvement, so thanks for trying this out! :-)

Well that was just amazing and adorable. Loved the art style and the general concept.

Developer

Thanks so much!

What a fun creative game.  I really enjoyed the art and story.  Was there more uses of 7 then just the name of the snail that maybe I just missed?

Developer

Thanks a lot for playing! Actually, snail numbers are just for distraction and true reference is 7 sins:

  • Main character Seven - Gluttony (remember that enormous carrot)
  • Rapid Jack - Pride (too many talks about his velocity)
  • Snail #1 - Greed (starts first, labeled first, craves to finish first and get the trophy)
  • Rabbit - Wrath (wicked as hell)
  • Worm Don - Sloth (for saddling up Seven)
  • Worm Din - Lust (that conjunction scene was really lustfull :D )
  • The Boy - Envy (he is envious of God, so he creates his on world which is Snail Race)

Reference is not explicit, as we did not want the emphasis on that. We wanted the game to be self-sufficient, as if there were no theme declared at all.

One of my favorite entries for sure ! I loved the graphics. And the humour. It also was very surprising which made me keep playing even when it was less fun (one tunnel is really long).

If I was too nitpick a bit: It would have added so much more tension if the rabbit was moving ^^


Great job!

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! We had to sacrifice rabbit mechanics to have more time for other aspects, but we are definitely going to make the rabbit more robust after Jam's finished :)

I loved everything about this game.

I really enjoyed this one. Starts off like a little race game, turns into a story and a little adventure. Really liked the game, artwork and music - great job!

Developer

Thank you so much! Surge of motivation :D

Excellent work! The scene at the end was great! Great art.

Developer

Thanks a lot! We love games and memes, why not making a meme game :-)

I thought it was great little experience! The audio and visuals in particular were really good. One piece of feedback I have is that it didn't see like the rabbit was ever getting close so I didn't feel like the stakes were very high in that scene.

Developer

Indeed, rabbit is on parallax layer and its position depends on player's, so it will never reach you. It was made as an addition to our overall absurd theme + we did not have time to implement killing and respawning system, sorry for that :D
Thanks for playing and feedback!

Developer

Wow, very cool game with beautiful graphics! I loved it! Very polish.

Can't wait to see the next adventure of our little snail :)

Cheers! Looks like it'll have to go through myriad of challenges before crossing the finish line :D

What an awesome game, definitely subverted my expectations. And the ending! :)

Would love to see more of it!

Developer

Thanks! We aimed to make it a little bit ludicrous just to take rest from seriousness :D

Love this! The graphics are great, everything is super polished, and I can see how the mechanics would be good for a longer game.
