I'm trying to finish the unity tutorials to be able to code for a downscroller adventure game. I'm hoping that I can get it in time. It's not my first jam, but it IS my first time coding with C# hence the tutorial training. My main goal is to get it mostly done by February. Once college is over next year, I'm going back for a programming degree to help with learning coding for professional use... God-willing!

Thanks! I'll keep it in mind. I do have other engines I'd like to try my hand on like rpgmaker or unity if I can get my brain to wrap around the coding language. Unity might be my first pick to learn because I really want to get the coding down without quitting this time.
Thanks! I appreciate it. Depending on which ending you get, it's either santa who is really reading the story, or Jack dressed as santa...Kind of a subtle twist which is why I hid his identity in the beginning and revealed it at the end. The third ending is what I have left to work on and maybe more pictures.
This was pretty cool! A different take from what I usually play with different mechanics like gliding and floating. I think the last time I played something like that was when I played Mario back in the day when nintendo 64 and supernintendo were beast!
I found a little area where the spikes don't "kill" the bird. It's at the part near the end where you are about to climb up the steps and the spikes are stacked up by threes. Itch.io won't let me put in a picture otherwise I'd show you. You could add in an easter egg for that on the other hand...
When I seen the cover photo, I thought Ooh looks like Limbo! I'm surprised no one has commented on this; this is really cool! I admit, I didn't fully read the instructions, but I understood the concept when it counted. I especially love the save feature.
High 5 rating from me!
This was an interesting game. Reminds me of playing the game “Company of Myself” when you switch characters. It’s gonna be a sad time when flash games stop working. Overall the concept was pretty cool! I had to stop mid game because hey, Christmas is a comin.
True, point taken about covid, I personally believe that we shouldn’t be separated into the two categories of pessimism or optimism, but rather have a balanced approach with a realistic perspective.
Thanks! I still have to make a few minor edits. Mainly grammar and punctuation due to the fact that I worked on this during the night. My next one is less creepy and more of a why would you do that Santa!? kind of game.
Glad you liked it! I would like to add artwork, but I need to learn how to work it in first. I’m new to using Twine so my first few games are going to need work. I just learned how to code in multiple sound effects and music to change as you progress.
My educated guess is to find an app that can convert your files from that format to the one you need, otherwise, you would have to select that format prior moving your game onto your computer from construct. What I mean is that say I have a game I made with Engine ABC, when I'm done, Engine ABC provides options for choosing a format for the game so I can move it onto my computer as a finished product.
Example, with programs like LMMS or Reaper, I choose which format I want for the audio files I just created. In my case, it's mp3, wav, etc.
The .zip is just a folder to store your files, folders, data, etc. and compresses them for easier transfers. To my knowledge you can't convert anything per se to a .zip because it's just a compressed folder. Don't worry about being new to this, we all were at one time or another. You can do this!
Googling it would probably make better sense. The way I speak probably sounds like coding language instead of english. lol
Everyone else's games are mostly happy fun games and mine is the only one that is dark...ish. Lol. Oh well. At least I had fun in this jam. Speaking of jam I gotta find some and put it with my peanut butter sandwich!
Edit #3829: With the lack of time that I have, I still managed to play a couple of the jam games others did and I like em. Keep it up jammers. Those who are still working, you got this!
I figured out why it didn't work on my browser. I tried playing someone else's game and ran into a similar issue. Apparently third party cookies were blocked. I completely forgot about checking that out.
Bro...I knew it was scary and I'm no stranger to scary games I never jump during a game...but let me tell you, the jumpscares in this game WILL get you. This game is at the place where I'd forget about formalities and burn the house down over that thing! Awesome job with the game! I was not expecting to be hunted in this game, but I was and it was by the monster itself. If this is how good your games are, hopefully I'm around to find your next one!
I see what you did there! Not to worry...I'll keep it a secret. I loved the setup and execution of the game. Eh, I know I promised to wait until nighttime to play it, but I couldn't take it, I had to play through it anyhow. Great job overall!
Journal Entry #4 I made it to Floor 11, they killed my best friend Bob. He was a good friend, but now he's dead. Note to self, don't be like bob.
Anyways, funnies aside, I like it so far! I finished the game...and I have reached my verdict...
I love it! It's definitely got some awesome sound effects. Reminds me of a game I played when I used to play on roblox. Can't think of that game though it's been so long. The voice acting here was pretty neat also. Great job!
PS: Using the radio chatter codes is pretty neat. Reminds me of my last job where radios were required for daily operations.
I love the concept! My gameplay was via iphone, but it runs smooth and let's you play with fair advantages against the enemies. Now I know why Santa is so skinny...I think I need to clean off the dust off the ole treadmill for myself.
Browser version didn't work but looks interesting. I'll download it when I can.
Update 1.0: I just noticed you posted it onto the apple store. Heading there now.
Update 1.1: I just played it until the third level to give an honest review. The concept is great overall. A couple things to consider. I found a way to beat the system and I'm keeping it here on the jam review on purpose just so the non-participants have a lesser chance of learning the easy way.
At first I noticed that I pretty much have unlimited ammo supply because of the snow (duh ghost) but I noticed that the enemy of my enemy is a friend...the snowmen! If I feel lazy, I can gather the monsters to follow me and run in the way of the snowmen and allow them to take care of the loose ends. (If you catch my snow drift) okay okay no more puns...XD
Last thing I noticed is that with the snowballs I collect, I don't have to face the monsters directly; I can just lay them down like a mine and that takes care of any monsters behind me.
Those are some things I noticed otherwise, for the jam you did good in my opinion. A few fixes so no one else can cheat their way through and it's pretty fun. Maybe add a storyline before each level with a change of the scenery like a town or a village later on.
I’m gonna have to wait. I started feeling awful earlier today, hope it’s not covid, so it’ll stay on my computer until I can play it. Update: Guess it was a false alarm, maybe it was a stomach flu or something. It was gone by the time I got up this morning.
I'll give it a shot tonight. I didn't realize I would ever be hunted so I'm curious! ;)
Update: I will say that I did have to search for a decent rar extractor. NCH software is a good software that I would personally go for. I completely forgot about them until I found their version. It's not nighttime yet, so I'm not playing it until then.
Voices, a dark forest, and a stranger walking with you. What could all this mean? What’s going on? Where are your parents in all this? You must keep walking through the story to find out. This is a story set during a Christmas season where you get to make conflicting decisions of how the game ends. The link is available below and make sure to put on some headphones to enjoy the music.
This was pretty neat. I think if I could add anything it would be a reset button when I'm driving. I turned the vehicle over twice and had to close out the game and restart it. No biggee for me. (In games I tend to drive as I usually do in real life while off-roading, I don't drive slow. lol)
I would say that it was kind of disturbing as others said but for me not so much...because...well...I guess Call of Duty got me used to seeing that stuff (o_0).
Anyways, in spite of the time limitations for the jam you did good.
