"Physician, Heal Thyself"

Game Description
I took the theme a bit literal and decided to make a top-down action-puzzle game where your character is constantly growing. This presented many interesting technical problems to solve. I had a really fun time with this jam and learned A LOT more about Godot in the process.

Nice use of the theme! There's something nice about games with simple, clean shapes. I enjoyed your game and I thought you had great puzzles. I think the game could get even better with simple audio queues, but it's good anyway. 


Thanks for your feedback! I'm definitely going to add some audio and music to it :)


Good thinking and use of the theme, this is quite creative to also properly use the healing system to make you either shrink or expand.

The only thing I will point out is that there is no audio at all, but the visual is pretty to look as well.

By the way, another interesting game to play!


Wow, what a fantastic interpretation of the theme! I really love the minimalist aesthetic. I think analogue game sticks would be the ideal controls for this game. Some audio would also make a great addition, but overall just superb!


I totally should have added controller support! That wouldn't have been too bad. I'll look into adding that in the near future :)

Thank you for your feedback!


Congrats, nice game!

Simple, fun puzzle concept with a clean execution.


Thank you!


Very neat idea and executed well. You explained the game really well through the first few levels. Like others have said, some simple music would be a great addition.


Thanks for your feedback!

I'm going to take this as an opportunity to learn some tools for making music for a Godot game so that I'm better prepared next time :)


This game has some very clever puzzle mechanics, I love it! Just wish there was some sound.


Thank you so much!

I agree, some sound and music would really add some polish to it. Considering adding a few things to it in the next couple weeks :)


Probably the best game I've played tonight :D very nice idea with new mechanics appearing with the different levels; it feels like a complete game!


You just made my week! Thank you so much! Happy you enjoyed it :)


liked it, easy controls but fun to play, would love to see this with sound effects and music


I'd love to add those with some more time. Perhaps after the jam and a little bit of a break ;)


Note: If you tried the game earlier and found that the player was scaling WAY too fast, I've patched a bug where the player would scale up faster than intended on high framerate monitors. If you download the new runnable, it should scale as it was meant to now :)


I got stuck trying to beat the split big/small level...that damn right had corner kept squishing me!

Simple but nice art, sound would have made the experience better for sure. The controls were a bit odd at times but it might have just been the speed or idk if maybe gravity was involved but it seemed like I would orbit things while slow and trying to get to them.

Overall great job!


Thank you for your feedback! Glad you enjoyed it :)


I think there are missing .pck files to play the game

Developer (1 edit)

Ah I see that now too. Where do I need to put the .pck?
Fixed it! Thanks for the heads up! :)
