The soundtrack reminds me of Gaston's music from Beauty and the Beast, and that alone sold me on the game!

The art is incredible for the limitations given, and the gameplay is well polished.

This is overall one of the best entries in this Jam, and goes to show what can be done is such little time with a bit of imagination and hardiness!

Developer

Wow! Thanks for the compliments! The art and music is everything I was hoping it would be for the jam!

I really enjoyed this game! The progression was very enjoyable and the graphics and music were awesome! More points for the nice post-credits animation, too!

Developer

Thanks! Most of the time, I'm not a great artist. However, when dealing with 3-4 color palettes and severe graphical limitations, I find I thrive with art. Glad you enjoyed the post-credits!

Super well made. Its simple and straight to the point. Great use of GB Studio. Good music as well!

Developer

Thanks! I didn't know if I could even get the game to work out in the end when I started. Music was absolutely my favorite part of the game. I'm thinking about releasing the soundtrack as a separate download!

I really like the time mechanic, very smart concept!

Developer

Thanks! The time mechanic came after the first unique mechanic didn't work out past prototyping (3D graphics).
