Congrats on the game, buddy.
It's definitely got a minimalist style (and controls), but also some really great and challenging puzzles and gameplay.
I found myself feeling really chuffed when I completed a couple of hard ones
(tho I must confess, I skipped that "horizontal" one - yikes!)

All in all another great puzzler from you - congrats and all the best with the jam! :D

That's great Sean - this will DEFINITELY be a lifesaver going forward.
Thanks again! :D

Wow, this game was quite an experience - very impressive for only 48 hrs work! Congrats! :D

Firstly, you nailed the visuals and music (as your jam result confirms) - the game looks stunning and those synth sounds are so sweet, they hark back to my 80's yoof :o)

This game was MUCH darker than I expected, but again, more credit to you for being able to create such a strong narrative in a) 48 hrs, but also b) with the player in such a short play-time.


I loved(?) how you represented the looming pressure/depression with the visuals in the background - very effective.  With the ending - I wasn't sure whether the farmer just gave up farming (or on life) at the end, but I guess it doesn't really matter - either way, I think you've created a pretty strong message/feeling here.

Lastly, ...are you ok?*

*Said slightly "tongue-in-cheek", but after seeing content like this, I feel it would be remiss of me if I didn't remind you that I'm only Tweet away if you wanna chat! ;o)

This is great and VERY useful - thanks for creating it! :D

If you're at all looking for feature suggestions - it'd be great if this also allowed you to pick colours and set the transparency option, as this is the bit I tend to get stuck on!

Thanks again

Hey, thanks a lot eNt. Very glad you liked my game!   :o)
I've started working on a "full/HD" version of this game, but I've not got very far (hoping to get it finished by the end of the year).
Alas, can't take much credit for the music - that's all "The Prodigy" ;o)
Thanks again! :D

I see you've mapped CTRL to the Eye Dropper tool, but isn't that typically mapped to the ALT key?
(perhaps you already had a binding here, or can't use it for some reason)

P.S. - Are you planning to bring out a Mac version one day? (I know, it's only the first build, but...!) ;o)

Thanks Pazzap2,
Glad you finally got to the prize line! :D

Great little game Gregory!
Really makes you stop and think about how to play each level.
Also love the cute player character (and jump sfx)
Gongrats and Good luck! :D

Congrats on squeezing all this into an LDJAM entry Egor!
I have to confess, I kept dying after about level 6 or so.
But you've clearly thought about the level design,
and the gfx are great (epecially the LAVA!)
Congrats & good luck! :D

Hey 2D,
Well done for creating a lovely and relaxing (for the most-part!) little fishing game.
The graphics are amazing for PICO-8, you really know how to push this console.
Loved the background music too - perfect for this game.
All the best!

Lovely little game.
Great mechanics - once I realised you can only make one additional move in the air, it became even more fun and challenging.
The slime/blob animation effects are great - especially for Pico-8.
Congrats and good luck! :D

Yeah, I ran outta time during the Game Jam to add extra stuff like that.
But thanks a lot for playing (and for the feedback) :D

Ha! I probably wouldn't,  as thinking "outside the box" is not my fortΓ©! :D

Wonderful "meta" game, well done! :D
Loved how you included changes in scope, mechanics, visuals, and more.
Really clever and had my noodle thinking overtime in parts!
Good luck in the jam :D

Hey, thanks a lot! :D
Glad you liked it (and its silly ending)  ;o)

Hey, thanks for playing again PizzaCat
Yeah, the controls are a little tricky on this one.
What catches most out is that after you press UP to make a High Bounce (to reach Upper Pipes), you have to press DOWN again to do a Low Bounce (for Lower Pipes).

LOL! This was bloody hilarious - easily the funniest entry I've played! :D
Well done & good luck! :D

This was a very atmospheric entry!
(thought it *seems* that audio content may have been predefined?)
Either way, great graphics and execution.
I have to admit that I couldn't figure out the code either.
I too would've preferred to take the notes with me (else why have an inventory?).
But I also approve of your attempt to get players to "write down" notes, like the good ol' days (tho I have to admit, I screenshot'd them & it *still* didn't help me!)
Overall, an impressive game under the time constraints - good luck! :D

Wow! This game is AWESOME! :D
It not only looks and sounds amazing, but it's VERY addictive as well.
The music is absolutely SPOTT-ON to the film, it almost sounds the same!
I think the best I managed was only killing 3 or 4 cars.
Can't really think of any faults, other than it's a bit too easy to die?
Congrats and good luck! :D

Alas, I couldn't play this as my anti-virus immediately quarantined it as a risk.
I'm sure it's a false-positive, but as I can't override it, I was not able to play & rate this one. Sorry!
All the best! :D

This is a RIDICULOUSLY good game.
The driving "mini-game" alone is awesome, let alone the platformer as well.
How on earth did you do this ALONE in the time period,!?
The graphics style is amazing (I may have to look into your Pixie game engine!).
The music is also really great.
The whole atmosphere reminds me of a mix of "Escape From New York" and classic (read: cheesy) 80's sci-fi actions films.
I almost got stuck at the end, coz I couldn't tell what had unlocked, but found the "cure" in the end.
Great stuff - good luck! :D

As soon as I saw this entry, I proper LOL'd - what an AMAZING idea! :D
I love this scene in BIG, so couldn't wait to play it.
It's hard, granted (I only managed to get ONE sequence right!)
But the overall idea, presentation and execution is really cool.
Perhaps someone more musically-inclined can get further than I did.
Congrats and good luck! :D

Thank you Nada for featuring my #MovieGameJam entry.
I love hearing the joy/surprise/relief when ppl complete my games.
Glad you thought it was a good craic! :D

(P.S. - Love that 80's intro - so retro!)

Thanks a lot - much appreciated! :D

P.S. - I just watched your 2017 Jam highlights video - you had a GREAT year making games, congrats! ;o)

Haha! That was... Savage! :D
Your reviews are always "unique", and this one's no exception! ;o)  #NippleGate
But seriously, thanks for playing - sorry to hear ur still having audio/capture issues.
Laters! :D

This was a lot of fun.
At first I didn't see what I was doing wrong, then I paid proper attention to the stats in relation to the question!  There were still a few odd questions tho (perhaps in-jokes?)
I've yet to actually see this film, but it's been on my To Watch list for years!
Congrats on a well polished entry - good luck! :D

I love this scene from Fury Road.
This game has a lot of potential- it's a shame you ran out of time.
The graphics are really good, as is the sound.
Looking forward to playing a finished version some day.

At first I was like... "Whaaa? It only updates when I move?"
Then I realised... BULLET TIME! :D
Very cool mechanic, and the game is good fun too.
Love the initial menu being a console - nice touch!
Congrats and good luck! :D

This was quite a lot of fun! :D
Made a complete hash of my first attempt (don't ask - I even managed to crash THOUGH the star destroyer model!), but nailed it the 2nd time.
Good graphics and sound. The controls were a little iffy when aiming at the top & bottom orientation. I assume that's to stop things getting too funky. Didn't help me on the last phase coz I thought "I know, I'll attack from the bottom!)
Overall, a really good entry - congrats and good luck! :D

Very cool game (I'm a sucker for procedural generation!) :D
The graphics are damn good and the music is banging.
The controls took a little getting used to, but not too much.
Ended up getting quite tense after a while (managed 14km)
Congrats and good luck! :D

Ok... I *may* need a new SPACEBAR. :D
Nice idea to turn that scene into a button masher.
The graphics and sound are so good - the camera shake is the icing on the cake.
So... should I give you my address to send a new keyboard to, or...? :D
Congrats and good luck!

Nice one! :D
Of course I died several times trying to spell "Jehova" (with an "i") until I saw the *actual* word (D'oh!)
Nice music and presentation.
Only had to force-restart once due to known issue.
Congrats and good luck! :D

Kinda struggled with this one - took a while to find the controls.
Then it seemed to me the whole game was off-centre? Perhaps I missed something.
The music was awesome tho! :D

This was a great interpretation of that classic scene.
Plus it was really fun to play!
I thought it was a bit too hard initially, but that's coz I forgot I could "RUN, FORREST, RUN!!!"
Great graphics and sounds.
Reminded me of a classic arcade game.
Congrats and good luck! :D

Pretty much perfect! :D
Great graphics & music.
Really clever interpretation of the scene into this style of game.
I think only thing that made it harder for me to complete was my lack of numpad (small mac keyboard)
But I persisted and was glad that I did.
Congratulations on a great entry & good luck! :D

Cool idea for a mini-game.
Just a shame that there doesn't seem to be an end goal... yet! :D

Oh wow, thank you very much - your comment just made my day! :D
Great feedback too, much appreciated - I like the idea of the enemy "anticipation".
Thanks again for your kind words and for playing! :D

Hey, thanks a lot for the kind words - much appreciated! :D

Really good little PICO-8 game.
Loved the simple game play - was very addictive, completed it on 2nd try (but was tense - that bloody pinching finger!)
Nice pixel art too, looked just like the film - especially the iconic carpet!
Congrats & good luck! :D
