Hiya, I played through the game recently and had a great time doing so. The pixel art style is what caught my attention initially followed by the fact that the game is based off Evil Dead 2 which only made me want to play it even more.

As mentioned by a few people prior to me, the intro scene is striking and immediately catches your attention, making you ready for more, it certainly was a great addition to the game.
I did find the game to be a little bit challenging, especially when the kick is introduced, but given the short length of the game the difficulty is just fine.

All in all it's a great little game, based off an equally great movie. I'm happy I got the opportunity to play it here and look forward to hopefully seeing more from you in the future.

Also, I hope you don't mind but I recorded a short let's play of the game for my channel.

Groovy.

Made my Top 5!

What a great, if short, tribute to the mighty Evil Dead II.
Amazing intro - really sets the tone! :D
Great graphics - especially like the ray-casting effect from the hand on surrounding objects (doesn't really seem to serve a purpose, but sure looks cool!)
Love the humour - especially the way Ash kicks the hand away!
Congrats on getting this all done in the time allowed.
Good luck! :D

Thanks Paul!

That intro sequence was kinda unexpected.  I remember as I was trying to get some some sleep and suddenly that idea just grasped my mind and didn't want to go away for, like, 20 minutes. So I had no choice to get up and implement it and learn how to use that new Timeline thing in Unity along the way. That tool is very cool and perfectly suited for 'movie' stuff.

I had a lot of fun playing the game. The opening sequence reeled me in fast, and the audio was well done. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if the game was a bit longer either. I really liked the idea of being a disembodied hand that strangles people. I do admit that the controls were a bit odd though. It took some getting used to as space is usually to jump, but it's a short game so it was no problem.

Overall, great game! Good luck with the game jam!

Well, hello there and thanks for feedback!

And you should definitely consider a path in voice acting career :D

( οΎŸΟ‰οΎŸ    ) Glad you like my voice! And once again, good job!

Hands down this is the best Evil Dead game to date! Really captured the looks of the movies and the humor excellently. Ash was the OP badass he should have been and the struggle was real in trying to overcome him. This game is ultra GROOVY and it is my personal favorite of the many games I have tried in this Jam! 5/5 

Developer

Well, what I can say..

Oh boy, that's intense! I found myself getting stuck on things a bit, jumps are a bit too tight and things like that, but other than that this game is really fun, and superbly atmospheric.

That was seriously funny and fun to play.

Well, this was just great. I've only checked out maybe 40% of the entries, but this one really stands out. Great job, dev! 

Your game is third :D Cheers. 🍻❀

Really cool idea. That intro was pretty intense as well. Visuals look great, plays well. I think I was expecting to have to mash the keyboard to do the choking so it felt a little calm when I got hold of Ash. Might make it feel like more of a struggle if it wasn't just holding the spacebar. That's the only thing I can point out though as the rest of it was very well done :)

Developer(+1)

Thanks for feedback!

Yes, I was scratching my head against the idea of some QTE mechanic for choking  - good to hear as someone also got thoughts about the same thing)

(+1)

Had a blast choking out Ash! Made me want more as soon as it was over. Fun stuff.

fiuh! I did it! I though I was not going to be able to defeat that last part! I liked the fact that the hand has no life and cannot die xD

Developer(+1)

Great! You made it! 

If you liked that feeling I recommend to check out a game Getting Over It with Benneth Foddy.

Actually in early dev phase there was a "lifes" mechanic but it had quickly become quite unbearable even for me.

awsome! Evil dead is one of my fav movies B-)

Great touch on being ash's hand instead of him. It looks really polished and plays well. Although ash kicking me all the time made me rage quit hahaha

Developer (Edited 1 time) (+1)

Thumbs up for another Evil Dead fan!

And I'm gonna celebrate today as it is my first confirmed rage quit ))

haha nice, It's a good one to celebrate. I want to play it until I beat it, just need to make sure to stay off for a while before breaking anything :P

I suspected from the thumbnail that the player was the person, and I was happily surprised. It's a unique idea, and I enjoyed playing it! The only issue I had was that the shotgun knocks you so far back in the last phase that you have little to no room for error when trying to get in the final choke, and the way the jumping works makes it harder. It could have been a design choice to make it really hard though so I can't say too much! I still enjoyed it!

Developer (Edited 2 times) (+1)

Thanks! Yeah, cellar phase was designed to be quite hard.

Also  I watched as someone letsplayed the game and now I'm thinking that jumping and movement feel could be reworked in something better.

Nice! It's always good to use feedback to improve the game :)

It took me a while to get used to the jump (its very short), also there seem to be no life, or if there is, there's no feedback about it. Other than that, it was fun :)

Developer(+1)

Thanks for feedback!
Yeah, there is no life. Going to update game description. Something like "You're an immortal being with a little inclination for hugs" )
