I really like the role of each item. It forces you to manage your resources and think fast on which one to select. Adds a lot of depth to the game. Great job!

Yeah, I wanted to give each item more than one purpose in the game, to give the choice of which item to throw/use a bit more weight, in an attempt to force the player to think quickly while planning things out a bit. I'm glad to hear that you liked it, thank you!

Beautiful pixel arts!

Developer

Thank you, I'm glad you like the art :) I wish I'd had more time to work on the shore and water though; I originally planned to have trees and bushes on the shore (with fruit that could be knocked down into the water), as well as fish and seaweed below the water surface to give it a bit more life and character, but it was cut due to lack of time; I'll probably add it to the post jam version.

Unfortunately I cannot eat and repair beavers :)

Wow that was difficult but I was able to reach the sea. Very well done.

Developer

Thank you. I wanted the game to be challenging despite being so short. After the jam I intend to add more levels (end end level bosses), and I'll probably scale down the initial difficulty a bit as well.

Cool game. Just a bit hard to control :)

Developer(+1)

Thanks. I agree that the raft can be a bit hard to control; I might change it post jam.

Interesting, I think I managed to beat it, but it doesn't seem like there is an end to the game, is there? It was just all water after some point.

The game is pretty hard, and I like the throwing arc and the art.

Developer

Yeah, getting to just water counts as beating it; I waited too long before I started implementing the end boss, resulting in me not finishing it in time. I'll update the game page to let others know.

it looks VERY good !

the gameplay looks interesting, just the raft is so big it is really hard to steer ! definitely should be continued .

maybe have a look at toobin ?

Developer

Thank you, I'm glad you like it.
I agree that the raft is a little hard to steer; I initially chose to make it that way to better fit the theme, but I might change it post jam.

I do intend to continue working on his project; I already have ideas for end level bosses, as well as the final boss. I also have several other minor enemy types I didn't have time to finish doing the jam , (such as a frog that ries to steal your items).
