This mechanic has a lot of potential. Visuals and sounds were on point!

Sensuous movement! I enjoyed it!

Very relaxing, I could listen to the ice skating sound all day! I think a good addition would be adding some Point of Interest (building, landscape etc.) around the map for the player to discover.

simple, yet very pleasant. my bf made a „oooo” sound when he figured out the controls and started skating :) The sounds and the visuals and simple mechanics make skating very soothing and fun. The physics of jumping has super minor flaws, when you look at the conservation of momentum - but it doesn't break the suspension of disbelief in any way, so it's just nitpicking

Developer

Thanks for the nice comment!

I’d really love to know more about those nit picks if you don’t mind, what exactly doesn’t feel right?

Sound effects are really nice. Does this game have any objectives? It also feels a bit unintuitive that 'a' make you turn right and 'd' left, but maybe it's just me.

Developer

There isn’t really any objective, it’s more of a walking sim really, though there are lost items on the lake you can find.

I would say the controls are ‘counter intuitive’, but there are reasons... ;)

Thanks for playing!

had a fun with my Xbox360 controller!

i really like the sounds

btw i found only one lost item 😕 is there more?

Developer(+1)

Thanks!

There are 11 lost items, but the lake is infinite so it’s pretty much impossible to find them all XD

nice game so calming

why no source?

Developer(+1)

Thanks, glad you like it :)

I just did a minor bug fix and uploaded a .love file so you can take a peak at the source if you like.

Enjoy :)
