Great job on that wonderful adventure game!

Out of interest: How did you make the detection where the player can walk? When clicking, do you check the color of the pixel and then whether it is valid or not? If so, how do you then make the character not move over an area it can't enter? Some kind of A* star pathfinding? Or any other approach?

Developer(+1)

Hey thanks! You're correct - I'm using an open source Javascript A* algorithm for path finding (https://www.easystarjs.com/). To set up the movement grid, for every object in the scene I specify a y-coordinate that's a "cross-over" point for the character either being in front of or behind the object. Then, for every pixel coordinate in the object below that y-coordinate, if it's not clear (alpha==0), then it gets set in the movement grid as non-walkable. Otherwise, it's a valid location for the algorithm to walk to and then gets z-ordered based on whether he's below/above that objects y-coordinate cross over point.

Great game! Very atmospheric with awesome graphics and music!

Thank you!

Wow I'm amazed how much detail is in this game, I can't believe it was done in time for the jam! I really loved the atmosphere of the environment and the soft palette that was used. Mysterious and a little creepy. Big fan :)

Developer

Thanks!

Never finished it, very in depth, but really liked the premise of action point and click, re-occurring resource to solve puzzles.

Developer

Thank you!

This the 4th or 5th time this year that I see a game that I consider one of the best. It's a nice adventure game with everthing in order. I really like the background music, it really fits the game. Great work!

'That's just cruel' 

Loved that line when I tried to kill the rabbit when my shovel.

Great job!

Developer

Haha, thanks!

Exceedingly impressive adventure game. Congrats! Love the progression of the story, mood, color.

Puzzles were mostly good. I definitely feel like a bunny wrangler! I think there might be a bug in the farm field, the whole area is a hotspot making it super hard to interact there.

Developer

Thank you! You're right; the whole ground area is engageable which is an issue. Good catch - I'll work on fixing that.

I can't seem to get this to work in Firefox? I get the copyright screen but clicking on it doesn't do anything visible, and there's an error (`Phaser.Cache.getPhysicsData: Invalid key/object: "physicsData / copyright"`) in the console. Happy to rate and re-review once fixed, unless I'm missing something and this is part of the game?

Developer

Thanks for letting me know. I think this may be related to the issue over on the Lydian game which you experienced. Could you please try refreshing and not clicking anywhere else on the page, and see if it loads for you? Also, which version of Firefox are you using?

Submitted

I've now tried loading the page and not clicking anywhere except in the game, but I still just get the copyright screen, and clicking on that doesn't do anything. (This worked with Lydian.) Firefox 61.

Developer

Super weird. I'm also running 61 without issues. Just updated again and cleaned up some warnings - maybe those were the issue. Let me know if that works. Thanks for being patient.
