Plays well and looks awesome. Gotta catch 'em all!

It took a moment to figure out, but then it was quite a lot of fun. Also pretty good pixel work within the restrictions of the PICO-8 engine.

Developer

Thanks for the pixel artist! What was difficult to figure out? I may release a post-jam version if I get feedback on how to enhance it :)

I tried to catch the chicken by placing the cursor right on them when they stopped, and couldn't catch any because they would always fly away. It took a while to figure out that you actually have to click in front of them so they fly into your hands.

Developer

That's right. To be honest, I'm not sure if it's a bug or a feature. Chickens should be hard to catch! I'll probably tweaks some constants so the player doesn't have to anticipate the chicken's path that much. Thanks for the feedback :)

Submitted

Maybe allow the player to move the cursor while in the grabbing animation so they can react to the movement of the chicken?

Developer

That's a great idea! Thanks, I'll update the game once the jam is over :)

"I bet you not guess what happen again."
"Nope, not Goregek or chickens."
"Okay, I lie. Goregek let chickens out again. Dumb Goregek and rumbly belly."

Great game - good fun!
