5/5 FULL STARS

I loved your game, simple, but SUPER fun and addictive. That was REALLY FUN, I love the juicy effects and feedback to the player input. Well done my friend! Congrats!

I'd love to know your opinion of my game! :D

I love how simple this game is! from the art style to the gameplay to the music! Great job! 😁

Developer

Thanks a lot! :D

Very cool! Love the idea and the theme implementation. The music also made it a very soothing experience. I really liked the feedback mechanics and the feel during the backtracking phase. I did find it a bit hard to finely control the lifeline (via trackpad, though), but I could definitely see this as a full game with its simple but great concept. Very well done!

Developer(+1)

Thanks a lot for testing! It must be very very complicated with trackpad indeed ^^'

Submitted(+1)

Yeah... I'll have to give it another try later with an appropriate mouse and keyboard at hand ;))

Perfect! simple yet complex. its very pleasing to play and look at. its also a great use of the theme! Really well done!

 It would mean a lot if you could check out my Jam submission if you get the chance. Thanks!

Developer

How can a game be SO clean and satisfying. This game is so good.

p.s. I'm a FAN of your WIPs of Astral Ascent. they are truly *chef kiss*

Developer

Wow thanks a lot for the game AND Astral Ascent, I thought our game was really under the radar for now! Your game is amazing really well done!!

A very cool and minimalist game! The feedback and particle effects made it very fun and tense to play and I absolutely loved the art. Sometimes I would get caught in the tail of one of the lifelines I had made trying to get the next node and got hit over and over which was frustrating.  Maybe it could be good if hitting a red lifeline did more damage but deleted it to prevent that from happening. Really great game overall.

Developer

Good idea, thanks for playing ;)

This game feels so polished and smooth, a truly excellent display of coding and art combined.

One of my favourites so far!

Developer

Thanks a lot for the kind words!!!

a very fun game. I was a bit confused on what to do at first though.

Developer

haha yes but I felt no UI was more immersive! thanks for playing, I don't see your game, could you link it?

I thought the deadline was noon so I missed it by less than a minute. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my game though. It's my first complete game.


also I agree the game was very immersive

Submitted

They gave me a late submission link!  Next time I'm submitting a day early lol.

Developer

Damn it's sad :/ 
The game cannot be played sadly there are missing files to your upload!

Submitted

i think I figured out which file I need to add. I'll fix it soon but right now I'm out of town.

Developer

I think you can contact the organizers to add your game! Check the discords!
