This was super effective. I love the use of a cyclic structure with miniature diversions in choice to emphasize that no matter what you do it will never end and you are doomed to fall forever. The graphics, writing and sound design all played so well off each other that I even shivered a few times. This is a really exemplary example of atmosphere in a text based game.

The only thing you might want to do is add a flashing images warning for people who are sensitive to that.

Please mym family is dieing while I try 2 finnish the game

Created a new topic Walkthrough

Can someone make a walkthrogh 4 me?! I'm stuck fighting the cave goblins! nd would very much like 2 finnish the game please!

By far the best entry I have played so far. It was a challenge but you could always push through. Well done.

This was fun but I found that the gravity could have been stronger to allow for a faster game.

An extremely enjoyable and well designed game I enjoyed the stealth but couldn't stay alive long enough to reach the end. I'll have to play it again sometime.

Oh no my game has the same title! Please don't copyright attack me. You know what they say though? great minds think alike. I really like this game. The score system is fluid the gameplay is challenging but the controls are a little awkward ,however I know how hard it is to make a good control system and the art was snazzy so its 5/5 from me. Well done and good luck.

I really like the graphics on this game but find the screen size to be too big for my screen. You made a good game. However the game mechanics are awkward. Sometimes I try to hit them from below and sometimes I hit balloons but sometimes I hit the girl.

This game is really interesting. It's a bit hard to control. but I like it. The graphics are nice but I find the sidebar a bit awkward to glance over at while playing. The game mechanics are interesting but the description is confusing. well done though , a well executed good Idea. Just that sidebar could be smaller and maybe you could use some sounds, you could use http://www.bfxr.net/ to get some suitable sounds. Good luck. 4/5

I apologize for my vagueness but no one has found the secret yet so I can't spoil it.

I feel your frustration.

I made the game and still I struggle to see the secret.

Especially considering I've limited the resolution to something ridiculously small.

It is there.

I love this game in concept. However I feel the contols need a bit of work. the leaning is ok but it would be nice to have something like drifting or like a slight break. I've tried to make racing games before so I know it's tough to get the feel right. I look forward to playing this after more updates.

Ahh thanks for letting me know. I previously had this same issue with the Linux version and thought the Mac version was fine. I will fix this soon.

Wow I loved this game so much.It reminds me of my game Hungover. I loved your use of slight differences in sprites to denote passable areas. I kind of would have liked to have to push the keys to their locks but I guess a lot of people would find that quite tedious. I especially liked the islands puzzle because I enjoy the mechanic of making bridges in sokoban style games. Cant wait to see more of your work.

Hey. This was really sweet to watch. Thank you so much for playing and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I mainly wanted to create something relaxing about exploring a snowy garden so I'm glad you liked it. Also I'd like to note that the graphics are intended to look lo-fi because I was experimenting with the style.

Hey. You are now allowed to work on and submit your game until the 26th of this month.

The Jam officially ends on Friday night, but we've decided to extend submissions for late entries up to Jan 26th, a full month from when we started to give more a chance to make & submit. Flatjam now runs over GGJ, so consider a dual entry!

We've been really thrilled with the reception and the entries so far, so we've decided we're going hold a showcase in Dublin on the 8th of Feb in Third Space on Aungier St. We'll share the FB event here as soon as the upcoming Kitty Horrorshow night is over! https://www.facebook.com/events/347710072276201/ Feel free to hold similar events or even jams in other places if you like. :O

Keep making cool stuff! <3 - Llaura Ash and Breogán Hackett

Hey, loving what you're doing with this and will definitely be following development. That said I have one major gripe with the current version.

You need some form of art direction! Realism can be good in a lot of cases, but it's extremely overdone in the world of first person survival games. I would love to see a style that is more carefully and delicately thought out to match the themes and . Think about the dull ambience of Inside, the vibrant hues of ABZ├Ť, maybe the gritty comic book style of the tell tale walking dead games, or even a pixel art style like diaries of a spaceport janitor. Whatever you do, come up with something that really pushes the atmosphere of the game to the next level and makes the game stand out from other survival games in the same way the unique gameplay does. You're obviously going to do well with this game but I don't want to see another interesting survival game with a boring art style. Give everyone a breath of fresh air and do something new and unique. Well that's all I have to say. Good luck with this.

Ps. Watch the movie 'the Life of Pi" and steal all the things from it ;P

ahh thanks for the tip. I think the build got messed up at some point. I can't test Mac or Linux so usually I just have to hope it works. I'll get it fixed asap

There are 2 endings but you won't get much joy out of either. After all the madman is in complete control.

Ooh this is good, especially the first one when you said "There are many places in this world that are empty and lonely " nearly sent a chill down my spine. I'll let you know when I get started working on the game properly if I want you to be the narrator. Thanks a million.

Also if you want some idea of what my game will be like check out my game broken paradox. I'll be taking a similar art style but creating more of an environmental horror.

ooh turns out the original ending is broken in the current version -_-

Hey Broken Paradox has been updated to version 1.1!

V-1.1 Change log:

  1. Added another ending.
  2. Updated the ending audio.
  3. Some extra spooks and scares.
  4. New Logo
  5. More notes so be on the lookout.
(Edited 1 time)

Hey the update is out. I promise there's much more to discover now.

Totally! Twitter i where I get the majority of views on my games and I'm pretty sure it works for youtube too.

By the way do you have a twitter I subbed to you but I want to tweet about your video and couldn't find you.

(Edited 1 time)

Yeah that's the ending. As I made this game in 10 days I didn't really have time to do much better unfortunately. Glad to hear you got lots of play time out of it though ;P. I'm currently working on a small update which will add a few more places to visit, improve the ending, and fill out the story a bit better. That will probably be released in the next few days, but until then that's the full extent of the game.

Edit: Currently you have no access to the master key( it is basically just a "Door is jammed" substitute) However I do plan on adding a "Master key mode" unlocked by fully exploring the game and reading all the notes.

Ahh, thank you so much. I know the key getting element was probably too heavy but I ended up running out of time. I'm currently working on a small update for this game and when that's done I plan on making another small horror game working with what I've learned from this project.

Hey here's my entry into the fermi paradox jam, would love some feedback.

So I have a great idea for a game. I'm currently working on a pixel horror game for the Fermi paradox jam currently happening. It being my first horror game a lot of good ideas have come to my mind that won't work in my current game. So I noticed this jam, and once I'm finished the other game I want to work on a short psychological horror game about a ruined mannor where the player becomes trapped. A lot of parts of the game would work really well with some narration.

The problem is that my voice isn't the type to instill a deep sense of unease and horror. I need a deep dramatic voice to read lines like:

"There are many places in this world that are empty and lonely. Our story is about one such place... a ruined mannor in the middle of an ancient birch grove. "

That's a very wip idea of the introductory line.

If you're interested let me know and perhaps record yourself reading that line.

I just released a collection of short experimental walking sims for $5. If you are interested in experimental games maybe take a look.


Also if you cant afford them send me a message and I'll probably give you a free copy. I'm all for charging for games, but I get that not everyone can buy even the games they really want to play.

I would love to hear any feedback.

<3 <3 <3 This is wonderful. I love walking sims, and especially ones about galleries I especially love the almost sci-fi vibes that this gives off. I also noticed while on the diving board the water sort of flowed into the room behind me instead of just instantly covering the floor. This is a neat little visual trick that made me smile. Also those echoed footsteps as I stepped inside really pulled the gallery bit off so well.

I fell of the steps to the upper level the first time I entered the gallery, and I drowned and ended up back outside. This little moment of the game really brought my thoughts back to what was going on in this place.

The artwork on the walls was also really cool and reminded me of some of the cover art for PC music songs/EPs https://soundcloud.com/pcmus

Overall this game was wonderful.

Ahh well I think it's fine. This is more of just a way to gather up a load of unfinished games. I will say it's okay on the page.

Posted in Good work!

This is probably going to be a yearly thing. I also really love the itch.io system so I wouldn't like to leave.

This is a great idea.

You could even make a unity package (assuming you're using unity) to let others do the same easily.

Created a new topic Screenshots

Maybe you don't want to release your work publicly. If so I think it would be at least nice to share a picture or 2 with everyone. Feel free to post links to download too if you don't wan to make an itch page for something <3

Created a new topic Suggestions

I would love to hear any suggested changes to the jam page that you would like.

Did I leave out your medium?

Is my wording a bit weird?

Is the background a bit too distracting?

let me know, and I'll do my best to implement your request!

Hey bobor. I'm sorry to inform you that I have suspended work on this game. I'm extremely glad to hear that you liked it. If you want to follow me on twitter my account is @Bourbonboy. I try to regularly post screenshots of my current projects so you might find it interesting.

Glad to hear about these fixes. You're really putting so much work in on this. In regards to part of themap not loading, will this mean I can load a previously broken map?
