Cute story! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the Rainbow Game Jam 2017 games, if you’d like to take a look :)

Also a fan of that Sir Addlesworth III, although I hope he deserves the honour for serving penguinkind well and it's not just one of those political appointments to please penguin parliament. Got to 93 feeding time fish, thought more would come eventually but it seems the humans have gone away forever now. I have a lot of fish for now (some admittedly stolen from the other penguins) but they will not last forever and I am worried about what will happen when they run out. I hope the humans come back.

There's a lot here! I was curious as to where the heat mechanic would go.

I was frequently getting a popup with info about my ID badge for some reason, had to open and close the inventory to make it go away again.

I'll have a look into why the humans have disappeared. Feeding time is meant to happen every day cycle...

There will be a kind of "fail" mechanic when and if your energy and health reaches zero... I'm still deciding on how t implement this further.

I'm aware of the item-info-popup appearing and am still trying to work out why its happening... Well I know why its happening I'm just trying to work out the steps that cause it to happen...

All of the penguins will have a back story brought forward at some point. Although this is currently unwritten, Sir Addlesworth III's story is going to be an interesting one!

Lovely game, had some UI issues where the inventory wouldn't go away (dont know if i was hitting the wrong button or not!) For future, maybe a popup for which key to hit to interact with things (instinctively I was hitting E but had to back out to the main menu to check controls) Well done on getting so much done in the two weeks!

Developer

I'm going to have both ESC (Keyboard) and B (Controller) close all inventories as sometimes I got confused as to what closed inventories.

I'm not familiar with "E" being used for interact... 

Some of the UI still needs tweaking, I'll work on this when I have the chance.

I'm rather pleased with how much I got done in the 2 weeks, even though I had to pull some functionality to get it polished

Very fan of Sir Addlesworth III :-D  Nice game!

Sir Addlesworth III is thinking of setting up a fan club :P

The penguins are super cute and look great. Could not find all 100 fish though, didn't like having to walk in and out of pickup range for each fish in a group, don't understand why the fish in buckets doesn't count towards the quest, or why movement speed is decreased when 50 fish are collected. Would be great to play with sound and more stuff!

Developer(+1)

I'm gonna try and fix the fish pickups after the jam. The buckets don't count as you have to pick the fish up from feeding time.

The game has a concept of overencumbrence, I'm gonna put a better way of displaying when you're carrying too much.

I'm not a sound person so audio is also postponed until a future update.
