Lovely game. I included it in my LOWREZJAM compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Oh man... This game was outrageously good. The music, sound fx, animation all top quality.  And granny's story was heckin' emotional! How you were able to portray emotion into such a tiny game is beyond my comprehention. 100/10, well done! You're an inspiration, sharpfives.

Wow, thank you so much :D  What I would up doing was starting out doodling small findable items (stuff that seemed recognizable at the low resolution), and kinda bending / twisting the grandma's story to include those items in whatever way possible. It's not the most continuous / flawless story, but makes for a nice short game where your imagination can sort of fill in the gaps.

Submitted

Wow, I never would have been able to tell that you thought of objects first before story. It all fit really well together imo. Leaving up to the imagination is very smart in such restrictions as these. Congratulations on ranking 1st by the way! :D

(Just wanted to make sure I left a review, in case I don't get time to try to replay it - after getting "stuck" on first play-through...)

So far, I'm blown away with how AMAZING this game is! 🤯
There's so much here, for such little Jam time.

The artwork is just stunning - the pixelart is one thing, but the animations are SO smooth. 😍
Then there's the music. All your games have great atmospheric soundscapes - and this one is no exception.

I definitely plan to come back and complete (found 2 of the granny's memories + 2/3 frogs!)

Again - SO impressed with your work & wish you all the best in the Jam! 😉👍

Developer

Thanks Paul :) new version uploaded, hopefully that helps a bit!

Great game! Really enjoyed the art style, the world design and the audio. Great job on making it non-verbal/text - really hard to do at this res! Also there seems to be a small trend for pacifistic/non-violent games in this jam which I really appreciate ;). I couldn't work out how to get the ring and noticed that the controls seemed a little unresponsive at times, but very minor complaints in a fantastically polished game!

Developer

Thanks for playing! I just uploaded a new version with some bug fixes, so hopefully that helps. Hint - use the hammer to smash rocks :)

Holy crap what a beautifully animated game. All the little details of the player were noticed (the dust lifting from the ground when she moved, the flowers reacting to being walked through). By far the most beautiful LOWREZ game I've played in this jam.

The game crashed when I woke up grand ma T_T (I tried a number of times). I'm still in awe with how beautiful this game is.

Developer

Thanks for the kind words!

I've been tirelessly trying to recreate this crash/freeze problem, but cannot replicate it on my system. Running on MacOS latest Chrome and Firefox. If possible, could you provide a list of steps you took in the game to cause the freeze? Thank you so much for the feedback.

Submitted

Heck yea. I’ll dig into it and see what’s going on. 

Submitted

Alright I have a full stack trace plus any data I was able to capture from the event. Do you want me to email it to you? My email address is ar@amirrajan.net

Developer

Thanks so much for your help! I just sent you an email.

I also got stuck. I'm on chrome the latest.

Still, I'm impressed with the overall quality of this game. The animations are incredible and the details are really nice. I'm really impressed with it. Also the story drags you in from the beginning!

The best game of the jam up to now but for that little bug.

oh no! the game got stuck while trying to open the box that requires a key. I think I also got stuck on this box the first time I played, after waking up grandma.

the snoring sound in the intro is so cute!! all the little animated interactions are cute!! I've never seen a fishing minigame done like this before what the heck it's so cool?? I love this game, I'll come back and try to finish it again.

Developer

Thanks for your patience with the bugs and for the helpful feedback! I've noticed this bug *sometimes* but can't seem to reproduce it reliably. I'll see if I can nail down the cause (let me know if you do sooner!).

Developer

Could you let me know what browser and version you are running? Thanks!

Submitted

I'm on Firefox 68.0.2. The other day I was trying to reproduce and somebody started discussing dinner while I was fishing with a line out, when I looked back at the game I couldn't exit the fishing state after pulling in the line ^^; If it's Unity, I have experienced very similar bugs while using coroutines and could describe possible solutions

Wow now this is a polished and very well put presentation for a low res game. Incredible ambience!

Developer

Thank you! :)

Wow!  Fantastic all around!  Beautiful graphics, lively animations, fabulous ambiance, good puzzle designs, everything is great!  Great job!

Minor bug: when swinging weapon and moving at the same time, she stops animating.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed it :)

Really, really enjoyed this!! Gorgeous animation, and lots of character, I'm still looking for the lady bird but I'm sure I'll find it :)

Developer

Thanks! If you need a hint, let me know! :)

Submitted(+1)

The art is amazing and the story was nice (although I didn't manage to find the ladybird...)

Once I got stuck in a game free bug the first time I met the grandma, just after opening the curtains.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I'll try and reproduce that bug.
