Hello friends! 👋
After a few months of work, Sharp Turn has been ported to the most popular modern game engine - Unity. I have a (nearly) full-time job so I was only able to work on this task for a couple hours a week. That's why it took this long.
I did it to learn Unity, as well as to lower the barrier to actually play the game. The original version required installation of Gtk# and .NET / Mono on your computer. Something, which probably deterred a couple people! After all, it's just a small indie game and itch.io is full of them. Now you can play it directly in your web browser (or download it for Windows or Linux without the need to install any third-party libraries.
It's still painfully hard & unforgiving though. Die & retry many times to complete! 💀
I hope you are going to enjoy it. You can play or download Sharp Turn here.
It just occured to me that you could also make a 'start.sh' sort of bash script that would simply execute 'mono LabChirp.exe'.
Then mark it as Linux executable in the manifest so the itch client app can start it for the user, as long as Mono is installed.
Thanks for your video!
I went with the ball all the way to the beginning and then I thought the game goes to some sort of "free play mode". Had no idea that I can woof myself even further to the left to unlock the ending!
|The game won't start||Please make sure that you followed the Install instructions on the game page.|
|Some sprites blend in with the game window||The game uses GTK, which is supposed to integrate with the system theme for windows to achieve a consistent look.|
However, due to the chosen art direction using a limited color palette it is recommended to use bright system themes, like the default ones in Windows or Ubuntu.
You can always change the default look of windows in your operating system in your system settings.

The controls are quite clunky and the game objectives are unclear, but the engine does vrooming noises alright and mowing around the trees is as difficult as it is in real life. Overall, a competent lawn mowing experience!
It even works on Linux using Wine, if you force the D3D9 via a command line parameter.
