Hey, big thanks to everyone who's been rating and commenting! I've written a post-results devlog here, and also the original jam version will be taken down soon to avoid confusion - download it now if you want it! (for whatever reason)

Submitted

The level of polish is insane. Awesome job!

My favorite chiptune music. My Favorite pixel art.

But It's too hard for me...

Submitted

Simple, yet very creative. Super hard too. One thing I wonder is what the thing I'm controlling is.

The downloads are somewhat confusing with jam version and improved one.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! As the page/title says, you play as a sock. I feel that the download complications are a necassary evil for now, but once the jam's over I can remove the original version.

Submitted

super hard, but each time I loose I feel compelled to play it more ^^ looks awesome, sound awesome, really finished, incorporates the team . Masocore masterpiece ;)

Nice game; fun, well made, and with a lot of polish! Love the low-res art style of the game. Also, nice way of incorporating the theme, really creative! (Also, love the difficulty!)
One thing I'd suggest though; consider adding "c" in addition to "z" for jumping, as it would allow the player an easy way of choosing which finger (middle/index) to assign to which action (jump/zap).
Other than that, great job!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I was wondering why some games had C do the same thing as Z - makes sense now. If I do a post-jam version then I'll probably implement controls remapping so you can do that as well as play with a different keyboard layout.

Submitted

Wow, this game is hard! I kept hitting "z" to zap only to find myself jumping when I wanted to zap 'em. I would consider making the lightning hitbox larger, but maybe that's just because I'm not very good at it ;D. Very nice game all around.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! The lightning hitbox is already way larger than you probably think it is, much larger than the visuals make it seem,  so I think that making it any bigger would make the game too easy. On the topic of difficulty, I think I need to start making my games less difficult, as I'm mostly designing them to be played by myself rather than new players due to being kind of the only playtester. Not sure about the controls thing though - have you been playing another game where Z is attack? That happens to me sometimes.

Submitted

Oh gosh, I guess I'm just bad then xD I don't know if I've played any other games with z as attack, but I just continuously died because of that lol. Also nothing wrong with making a difficult game! Keep it up man.

Submitted

The game is beautiful , fun , music and sound are great.

Developer

Thanks!

This is brilliant! Short, cute, and very polished! I can't get over how clever the concept is, and how well you executed it!
