Anything you want to say to players before they play?
You control chuck by using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

This game originally should include four levels which would take the player on a journey across the island. I had to scope it down to the first level only, but I might add the remaining levels later.

Nice platformer! I included it in my Movie Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out! :)

Developer

Thank you very much for playing my game! :)

(Sorry for late feedback but feedback is feedback I guess?) The game looked and sounded great but other than jumping pits there was no variety or change in scale two very important principals in game design. Here's a video about what I mean but your work in every other aspect of the game is great!

Video about Variety and Scale: 

Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm going to make a Game Jam Spotlight Video on my favorite games from this jam on my Game Design Analysis Channel Etra Games in a few days! So here's a shameless plug to my Youtube channel if you want to be notified of when the video releases! :

Super fun to play. Loved the pixel art, audios and the whole design of the game. 

Well done mate!

I liked this game a lot! Wow, the shear pleasure it gave me was amazing. Good job!

Developer (Edited 1 time)

Your video is awesome! It has taught me really much about how to design a game for someone who plays it for the first time. Especially on the matter with the drops you can't climb up again. I'm so happy you liked it, I really enjoyed watching! :D

Monuriki is the name of the island Cast Away was shot on. ^^

Good to hear that, glad I could be of help too! And what a fun-fact to know that the Island was called Monuriki, but.. how do you pronounce it?

So great! I loved every part of it. The art, music, effects, design are all great. Fantastic work!

The game is fun, maybe a bit too much easy? I liked going around jumping and collecting coconuts! The ends was a bit sudden to, but now I want to jump on the volcano! Good Job!

Developer

Thank you for the feedback. It's super helpful, especially on difficulty, becuase that was the part I was most unsure about. Sadly, I had to sacrifice the ending to submit the entry in time.

I'm happy that you liked it!

It was a very good movie and your interpretation was also very good. It was a nice little platformer I very much enjoyed playing. Also, menu scene art was amazing. Congrats :)

I'm happy, you liked it! ^^

Thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it! :)

I love the cute run animation, it really jumped out at me when I started playing haha. Nice little game

Developer

Thanks for your humble words. I really appreciate it. ^^

Oh, another game about family reunion. I liked it.

 It feels fine and soft. His skirt animation is a hit )

Also I think a key to skip intro text wouldn't hurt. It's a bit tedious to click through it on restart. And I wanted to see Wilson at last, at least somewhere in the distance, but alas - there is only promise of a journey to a volcano. 

Developer (Edited 1 time)

Thank you for the feedback.

I see that not seeing Wilson is disappointing but sadly I had to sacrifice him for gameplay as my scope was too big for this amount of time. I would have loved to make a real reunition.

Awesome! I really liked it, it's simple but fun. With a few more mechanics and levels it could be really cool! The only cons are that sometimes I would jump on a bat but a bit on the side and it would register it as being hit rather than killing it (collision issues, input lag? I'm not sure) and I was never sure if I could drop down platforms safely or if I was going to die from falling into an infinite hole (I guess there's no "game over" holes though).

Developer (Edited 1 time)

Thank you for the feedback!

I thought about the things with the holes because it's always a blind jump and I see that I should have designed the levels without them or somehow counter the guessing. I had more levels with different themes and mechanics in scope and maybe I'll implement them sometime.

I noticed the bug with the bats too, but sadly I couldn't fix it in time.

Thank you again for the feedback, its super helpful and I really appreciate it! 😊
