Just wanted to say that despite my lack of enthusiasm for this jam I actually find this game really good.
It deserved to be in a more high-profile competition than this :O
Thank you!! Sorry about the late reply!
I'm glad to hear you find the game decent, it was a nightmare to develop (since I only had the last half of the month to do it and I had to put in so many hours every day) and it will probably be my final game for a long time :'(
but then it at least ends on a high note I guess ^^
interesting, I think I've heard examples of the nokia 3310 playing back samples but that might just be me again? But I guess that puts the sound hardware you're working with here on an atari 2600 level :O
And I wasn't exactly trying to doubt your skills even though I see it could've been interpreted like that easily, I was just surprised by the music sounding the way it does.
So I had a tiny go at it again and fought a couple of enemies. I have to say I really like the animation and the enemy design! It looks great actually!
It's a pretty easy enemy, you can just spam the attack button and win it seems. But it's a good start ^^
I thought we were going diving, but this dungeon is not even underwater c;
Anyways, nice smooth 3d effect! and screen transition as well ^_^
other than that the there seems to be little going on, but it at least seems like a solid foundation for something bigger
Actually, I think it might be cool with some sort of ending? where your boat sails off the italian coast and everyone you rescued is counted up, you could even give every rescueable person in the game a name and show whether they lived or died.
well there is a bug when you pause and unpause the game standing in front of a chest, then you will get stuck within it :)
it also seems like the controls don't work as intended, but that might have something to do with NumLock...
Default controls in Haydenwoffle:
Movement - Arrow keys
Talk - Up arrow
Confirm/Jump - F
Back/Throw - D
Menu/Inventory - I
Menu/Reorganize waffles - S
Exit game - Escape (quits immediately without saving)
That might be a good thing to take into account! Maybe that's why it seems like few have played this, they can't even start it XD
But if you have played any of my games, they all use the F key ^^
now THIS GAME is exactly the kind of silly fun which I just love to bits!!!
It also put a huge smile on my face to see all these great OGA assets used in so creative ways, including my own songs!
Best game in the jam for me! 5/5!
