Great art and atmosphere. The sound design is excellent also!  

Developer

Thanks!  I'm glad you liked it!  I really liked the atmosphere of your game too.

Submitted

Wow I LOVE the aesthetic! The disjointed angles make for a super disturbing vibe, and the torch particles are a nice touch.  Some creative mechanics too- the skeleton physics are my favorite. I couldn't make it past the little circle-block dudes though, so I might have missed out on some parts of the game

Developer

Thank you!  I agree that those circle enemies were too random and could have used some tweaking.  The best way to get past them is to hold the flashlight over yourself.  Thanks for playing the game!  Your game was one of my favorites of this jam!

Submitted

Cool game! Congrats on the art

Developer

Thanks!  I'm glad you like it.

Art is cute. Hiding mouse cursor is annoying. I can't see where flash will light. But the idea is nice. Game is good if it's your first platformer game.

Thank you.  The windows version works best and doesn't hide the mouse cursor.  I uploaded the web version post jam but it has some problems.  Thanks for playing the game!

This game is super creative! The art looks really good! Great work! If you could check out my game too I'd appreciate it! 

Developer

Thank you!  I'm glad you enjoyed the game.  I played your game, it was very spooky, polished, and very atmospheric!  Thanks again!

Pretty creative platformer! It was fun to beat and it looks great. The audio is good too, but the ball enemies feel a bit spammy and random. Otherwise great game. Very spooky

Developer (1 edit)

Thanks!  I agree the ball enemies could have used some tweaking to make them more fair.  I really liked your game!  It was very smooth and polished and it had a very fair and well done difficulty curve!

This was fun! Really hard so took me a few tries to get to the boss, but overall a very creative platformer game! The cut scene visuals were pretty much impossible to see what they were though. 

If you could rate my game as well, I'd really appreciate it! :)

I'm glad you liked it!  I was trying to make the images kind of look like the ones in Clocktower on Famicom, but I agree the image distortion was a bit intense.  I played and rated your game, I really liked it, especially the classic point and click style of it!

Submitted

thanks really appreciate it! :)

I would love to play this game, but I only use MAC. Please make a browser version if you can please!

Developer(+1)

I don't have a Mac to test on but I could build a Mac version and you could let me know if it works.  If you want just let me know and I'll upload it!  If that doesn't work I can try to upload a web build.  Thanks for the interest!

i would love to play the browser version! At the moment, it takes a long time for me to download. 😂

Developer(+1)

I just uploaded a web version, the lighting is messed up, the mouse pointer is invisible,  and the screen is a bit cropped off, but hopefully besides those things everything works well!  Thanks again for your interest!

Submitted

No problem! I am always interesting in seeing the games other people create!

Developer(+1)

Sounds good, I hope you enjoyed the game!

Love the Games asthetic, however i have two issues with the game 1. the ball enimies can spawn too much and cause drop the frame rate, and 2. the boss fight is unbeatable ive tried time and time again and he will take the first two hits but be invincible for the third. ive hit him with four chandeliers and he didnt die (he has 3 hits).

Developer

Thanks for playing!  I agree the ball enemies could use some tweaking, and I fixed the boss being unbeatable, this version's folder is called "Brother's Invitation Fixed Two."  Thanks for your criticisms!

Submitted

The Build Works and I was able to beat the boss, but there is a audio glitch at the boss where it plays the same audio multiple times at once.

Developer

Glad it worked, thanks for letting me know about the audio issue, I didn't notice that.  I really liked Poor Choices!

Submitted

Thank you for fixing the audio glitch, and thank you for playing poor choices.

Developer

Thanks for playing my game!

Submitted

No problem

Just realized the problem with the audio at the end is that it's meant to be a reverb effect, but it's a bit overdone I guess!  Anyway, thanks again.
