Anything else you want players to know before they play?
The gameplay is rather limited in terms of length and assets, as I focused on the mechanics. Jump is open source (GPLv3), so feel free to improve it! I have other projects going on at the same time, so I might not get around to this very soon. https://github.com/Arc676/Jump

Thou shalt not swim in the ocean around your inescapable island :P

Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you liked the mechanic.

I cant open it on windows when I extract the files the file is empty

I'm sorry to hear that; thanks for letting me know. Extraction worked fine locally on my Windows VM, so it might have been an upload issue. I've re-uploaded the Windows ZIP. If the problem persists, let me know.

I noticed that the lighting didn't work properly when testing in the VM. This is likely due to performance issues with VMs, but if the game appears a lot darker than in the screenshots I included, let me know about that as well.

Thank you for your patience and for raising this issue.

Got it to open using winrar now Thanks! I tried it and It was tricky but it seemed to long. Other than that a nice translation of mechanic to game! Anyway one thing I do want to mention is I'm doing a review of design on the games in this jam so here's a shameless plug to my channel if you want to be notified of the vid when released: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7Vj46GGL9VMUvd4YTMtjXg

My XKCD game jam analysis is out!
