Wow thank you so much for this. The article really made my day, thank you so much for taking the time to dig into the game and I'm glad it appealed to you so well. I really liked how you mentioned about the walking backwards thing, I still don't know how else I would discourage it but my general rule nowadays is that if someone doesn't want to engage with a game on its own terms it's their fault if they don't have a good time ':D 

Anyway  thank you so much for this, it's always nice to be reminded of the high points of some of my older projects.

No the demo discs are a separate thing from the jams the discs are a once a year thing where we promote projects that are planned for a full release or have recently had a full release. Of course a game from one of the jams we host can continue development and have a demo submitted to the disc but this isn't what happens in most cases.

Okay well from the looks of it you just tried to post it again and again. If you needed help you should have stopped and said it wasn't  working. You also responded very disrespectfully to someone who  told you not to post a gif like that without it being marked as a spoiler.  I understand this may be frustrating, but the posts here and the way you have interacted with people in the server does not make us likely to unban you any time soon.

I'm never happy when we have to ban people but we expect a degree of cooperation and respect from our members and do not feel like you lived up to that during your time on the server. I hope that makes sense to you.

Hello, I have discussed this with the Moderator who Banned you. You repeatedly posted a flashing image in our server, something that can be really physically harmful for people with Photosensitive Epilepsy. You were warned about posting such images without a spoiler tag and you did not listen. So the situation is that we warned you about posting the image how you did and you did not listen these are perfectly reasonable grounds for a ban. I don't know what you think you're threatening us with but I can easily also ban you from here too if you persist. 

I will also say that from looking at your messages you were not acting very mature or respectful towards the other members of our discord, we actually also have a rule about this. That makes at least 2 breaches of our rules which you agreed to when you joined the server. So no we will not be unbanning you from our server for the sake of our other members.

I didn't mean to criticise you it's just, ideally I should be able to tell by the cover or (as I mentioned) screenshots that a game fits the jam. There's a lot that goes into running a jam and there's a bit of an issue I've had in the las t 8-10 jams I've run where people will submit unrelated games. Images of the game can really help avoid this happening and make the jam host's job much much easier. Congratulations on entering, I look forward to trying the game when I have time after the jam. (well hopefully I'll have time ':D )

Would really appreciate some screenshots on the page, and I'm sure it would help others find and get interested in the game if you added them.

Sorry if I came off a bit harsh, just fed up with people in other cases submitting games that weren't even uploaded to itch during the game jam. My mistake, hope you'll accept my apology.

Can I ask if you made this game with the HPS1 Summer of Shivers Jam in mind? I haven't had a chance  to try the game but I get the feeling the game was added to our jam on a whim. Regardless I would suggest providing proper screenshots on your game page so people can have an idea what they're going to play if they decide to download the game. 

If the game was not intended as an entry to our jam please remove it.

Unfortunately I don't have any Mac systems to test on and have had bad experience in the past with UI and textures being blurry or hard to read on untested builds. Maybe if I ever get a Mac I can revisit and make a proper build.

of course! I hope you enjoy!

Hello, I am removing your game from the Haunted PS1 summer of shivers jam as I believe it violates the rule "The primary portion of your game should be made during this event." 

If you would like to appeal this decision please respond to this comment. DO NOT add this game to the jam again unless we have discussed it and I have given you permission. 

It's fine just don't overwork yourself. Maybe making one super polished game would be better though but do what's best for you!

Yes you can, I'll update the rules with this.

Hey yes, we'd love to see entries from beginners. Our discord is linked in the rules section if you're looking to team up that's probably the place to look!

Aww, thanks for reminding me of this game, it's one of my favourite early projects in retrospect! Glad you enjoyed!

What a weirdoful little experience! Great work!

Perhaps you should try to refuse your faith.

If you have it on your laptop maybe you could transfer it with a usb stick or external hard drive if you have access.

I'm sorry but you  clearly haven't read the Read Before Posting topic. this post will be archived and you can repost the issue in the Issues and Questions topic if you like. Though chances are this is just a timeout issue with your internet connection and itches servers.

I'm sorry but you  clearly haven't read the Read Before Posting topic. this post will be archived and you can repost the video in the Videos topic if you like.

Some of the demoes are available separately. We can look into maintaining a list of the separate downloads but right now we aren't providing this.

Hello you should have read this before posting and asked the question  here
I will answer that some games provide this functionality but due to the nature of the project it cannot be guaranteed across all projects.
As explained in the first link I posted I will be archiving this topic.

I will be archiving this post as explained in this link.

I do not believe there is a separate version of walk available yet no. some of the others do have separate versions but that's up to the developer.
Also I will be archiving this post as per what is explained here

Sorry the experience didn't go as smooth as intended. I will pass this post on to the launcher devs and they may reach out to ask for more details if they need them.

Hi There, I'm Breogan I run the HPS1 twitter and started the community.

For the sake of keeping things neat and tidy in the responses this year we have 3 premade topics dedicated to the most common type of posts we expect. These are VideosIssues and Questions and Comments.

Any posts that should be put in these topics but aren't, will be archived. You should still have access if you are the original poster but won't be able to make new posts and  the post will not show up in the community. Topics that begin discussions or share things that don't fit into the 3 premade topics are allowed and encouraged.

If you have any questions please read the FAQ in Issues and Questions first.

Hey there I've added (SPOILERS) to the title of this topic to reflect that the password is posted here.

Oh good call, passed on to the team!

?We're trying to keep things neat and tidy here so people can get their comments read and demo devs can track responses to their games more easily.

TOBYN hawnk is skate at u

it s true


He's skateing at you.

Yeah I still mainly work on the built in RP. I might update it if I ever get into URP.

Oh I do like to be  beside the seaside. A very touching very stark contrast to my childhood summer holidays camping in the west of Ireland, going for drives just to do something while it rained and climbing mountains and swimming on the days that had even slightly nice weather. Still this flatgame put me in the time and place and that was really magical. I loved the art, especially the pitch and putt and also the walk cycle had that sort of spinning ballerina silhouette effect where it could look like it was walking any direction convincingly. Thank you for sharing this.
