I love the art style, and the feel of the game! I really enjoyed playing it.

The only problem I had was that I got turned around a few times and got lost because the rooms and doors all look the same. Totally understandable though, in the short development time for the game jam!

I personally really enjoy breakable weapons as a mechanic because it forces the player to cycle through weapons for variety, makes looting always feel good (because even bad weapons can be used to save the durability of your really good ones), and makes an interesting 'give and take' of when you should use your best gear (against a boss or a really hard enemy, or maybe you just want to kill everything really fast). 

I haven't actually played BotW yet, but I have similar experience from Dead Island. I think you did a great parody on how fast the player might cycle through weapons and how they must always be on the lookout for more. Well done!

I seriously enjoyed this game! Great visuals, made me feel like I was really on the desktop of a computer, running programs. Games had fantastic amount of troll, which made me appreciate this even more. Honestly, I could see this game going further, maybe with more secrets hidden in the computer (like hints/files explaining who the player's character is), more games to fix, and a story arc that emerges over time. I'm really impressed with what you accomplished in such a short amount of time! This is my favorite game from the jam so far!

Oh, my one piece of advice is you may want to revisit the itch cover image. In my opinion, it doesn't really show what the game is, and it didn't really pull me in. I actually ended up playing the game because my 3yo daughter wanted me to "play the bunny game" lol, which worked out, I'd say!

Excellent feedback, thank you! 

As for the loot box rewards, there is a "Duplicate" message that appears for ones you've already collected, but I agree that I need to add something else to point out the new stuff. There's a lot of juice missing right now.

Thank you so much for playing, and the feedback!

LOL well played...

Hi Kirgio, small world! I'm a mobile software engineer in Waukesha, WI. I was pretty sure there wasn't another person in like a 100 mile radius who cared about actual game design .

 One of my goals for this jam is to build some courage to meet people, and not be so lonely on this hobby gamedev journey. Lurking is my default too, so I know where you're coming from. Glad you're joining the jam!

A fantastic and cool world. It feels like there's a story for each of the environments that I wanted to dig deeper into. Looking forward to the full release.

Thanks pixel-boy! That's really good feedback! I agree that a victory condition makes a game much better. I realized that I was missing an ending way too late in the game jam to be able to add one. I agree that even for incremental or clicker games, an ending is really important to bring the experience to a close, so the player can move on to something else, satisfied that the game is finished. Endless games fail in that regard, and it's something I'll be fixing as I continue development on this game.

I cannot take credit for the music. It was made by the very talented Ozzed of http://ozzed.net/. I highly recommend checking out his work, it's fantastic and surprisingly addictive. Also, it's all released under Creative Commons Attribution license, so you can use it if you credit him!

Thanks for the feedback and good luck with your submission!

Great presentation and hilarious theme! It was definitely fun to play.

Not yet, I'll be releasing it at the end of the game jam on Friday :)

Thanks Adam! At this rate, I'm not sure how finished the game will be, but I might continue to work on it after the jam.

My game is going to be some kind of merge between an incremental and a mining game. Originally I had planned to having crafting and items in the game, but there's no way I'll have time to even make a dent in a system like that. Instead it'll focus on really juicy mining and an upgrade system.

After a week's worth of work, I have the mining mostly done. I'll be looking into the upgrades next, and possibly sounds and music.

Hi McFunkypants,

Is it possible to still include my game in the KIDSJAM? I missed the deadline by about the length of time it takes to upload on itch :( I really want my daughter to see her game as apart of the jam. https://mykaelos.itch.io/boom-boom-boom

Please let me know if there's anything I can do. Thanks,

Mykaelos
