Movie scene description (plus video link if possible!)
This game was inspired by the scene in "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" where Delmar awakens by the side of the river to find that Pete is gone and in his place is a toad.

Delmar thinks that the sirens from the night before turned Pete into the toad, so he puts the toad in a box to keep it safe.

Anything you want to say to players before they play?
This game is an alternate ending for the toad in which he escapes from the box instead of being crushed in the hand of the Bible Salesman.

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

Neat idea, and much better ending for the toad. There was one part on the night level right before the first snake where I couldn't jump the full height for some reason.

Yeah, there were collision detection issues in a few places that I couldn’t fix in time for submission, but I’m glad you still enjoyed it nonetheless!

Cute platformer. I love the interesting mechanic that you can only move while jumping. Wish there was some sound and music. Nice work!
