Thank you to everyone who rated this game & left feedback! This was our first time participating in a game jam and we had a great time, really looking forward to using what we learned here in future game jams!

Cute game, but as @PixelSprouts mentioned, the devils don't seem to do anything. I like a game with a low difficulty level, but this was too low even for me! Also, as @Dakhaimie said, a slight tweak to allow the player to know how many souls are on the cloud would be handy.

Developer

Thank you for playing! This game definitely ended up being too easy, maybe we should've given the imps some kind of projectile to knock souls off the player cloud, letting them do more than just lazily try to steal from you. Lessons for the future!

This cloud clearly enjoy its job!

I think we should know how many souls are on the clouds, since we have a limitation to 3 souls, but they are all at the same place, so can't know if there are 1, 2 or 3 souls :).

And I guess a bit more difficulty would be awesome (the imps are not agressive enough to be a threat)

Developer

Thanks for your comment! I agree, I wish I had added a clear indicator of the number of souls the player is carrying, and one design flaw is that the imps can actually steal all of the souls you're carrying, not just one. I'm getting the hint that my next jam game needs some more difficulty!

really enjoyed flying around as a pixel-cloud - cute asset btw :)

what maybe could be improved in the future is the devils-mechanic - they did not "steal" from me at all, so they are no real danger

Developer

Thank you for playing! The imps definitely ended up being pushovers, we didn't get around to adding player lives or anything that might have made the imps scarier so you can pretty much just let them hang out with you if you're not playing too recklessly.

Ah, I see you're a man of culture as well.

Ah yes, wonderful to find like minds.

The idea is cute, albeit a little bit repetitive. I got a score of 165, but I feel like it would max out somewhere around 180? For a score-based game like this I would want to see it have a higher skill ceiling.

Developer

Thanks for your comment! I agree that it ended up being too easy and the 2-minute timer might be a bit long for the simple/repetitive gameplay.

A bit too easy once you figure out how to get the get the souls. Decent concept though, maybe needed a little something else to give it a bit more personality.

Developer

Thank you for playing! I definitely wish I had time to add audio or some more animations to give it more personality, but maybe next time.
