Cool! I played for a few levels. I got stuck on the one with the long horizontal jump across the spikes.

very interesting concept here

Glad to hear you enjoyed the game. A speedrun would be interesting to see.

We have a facebook page, and twitter account. We have a discord, but there are only 3 people on the server.

Regarding the "Games must be original for Open Jam, they can't be entries submitted to other game jams or forks of other games." rule, we would like to know if it is against the rules to submit our entry made for this jam into another jam *after* submission to this jam.

Would submitting a game made for this jam to additional jams after submitting to this jam disqualify our entry?

Great!

We are considering rolling our own solution in C using SDL 2 for cross-platform graphics, audio, and input.

We would release the source of the game under the MIT open source license terms, and make it available on github.

Does this qualify for the jam's terms?

Yes, we still have this on our schedule. We have had many unrelated difficulties which have put our developments on hold for the time being. When we are back up and running, Gelda will be at the top of the list of projects to resume.

You may send us an email at contact@ramblingindie.games

Oh wow!!! We are honored!

Thank you :)

Very cool indeed.

Reminds me of tempest a bit.

The colors should probably change as your speed increases to denote you've made progress.

Could have collectables to grab.

The music is a bit repetitive and could do with an alternate section perhaps.

Overall, nicely done.

You will find a fox that tells you what you have to do.

Thank you! Were you playing with a gamepad or the keyboard? The gamepad controls are very much broken and are being rewritten for our next update. So glad you enjoyed the game. There will be more levels in the near future.

Thanks for playing.
There will be many changes in the full retail edition of the game that we are working on.
There will be a level select system, but crawling doesn't really fit the theme too well here. It's supposed to be somewhat challenging and getting stuck on an obstacle and getting caught by the predators is part of that challenge. It's a bit of a throwback to games of old where without warning you end up dying from a misstep or some enemy comes out from nowhere. Granted most games these days are made to be played at a breakneck speed with reckless abandon, Gelda was not made to be played that way. 

We are planning to zoom the view out a bit to give players more to see.

We are happy that you liked playing the game. Replaying levels is something that is being considered as we expand the game world, it's mechanics, and flesh things out further. Thanks for playing! :)

Thanks a million for the kind words!

Did you play the original release or the updated release?

The update has a lot of bugfixes and the controls were adjusted to be more playable from the feedback we've received from the community.

We are so glad you enjoyed the jam edition, and are indeed going to be extending the game. 

Thanks for playing! We're glad you enjoyed the game!

Please play the updated version, you will like it much more.

Also... the textboxes in the game that popup when you're playing contain vital information.

To answer your questions you asked during the play:

All graphics were created by Rachel Marks, and all Music and game programming was done by Richard Marks.

There is one more level in the jam edition to get through, and there are 3 sketchbook pages to unlock by collecting all the sketches in the levels.

Thanks for playing. We really hope that you like the update.

If you could create a simple testing project for macOS that lets you test all the controller buttons, I could run it and then tell you which buttons my controller come up as

Really LOVE the aesthetic you've got here. It's a lot of fun to play. My only complaint is that not one single button on my xbox one s controller is mapped to the shoot action, so I have to no way to shoot and play with the controller. 

I managed to jump my way through 2 levels, and then tried again with the keyboard and got through a couple more before getting stuck where there are three robots? enemies in a shaft that move left to right and kill me no matter how I time it.

Love the music and the art, and if you can fix the controller issue, I'd love to play more. :)

Wow, thank you for the very in-depth review of our game! We acknowledge that there are many small issues (and a few less minor issues) that we need to fix, and several things were discovered after we released the game for the jam. We have every intention to fix all the issues that have been pointed out, and add quite a bit more content for the player to consume. There will be more environments, creatures, and things to do overall in the game. New mechanics, and minigames to break up the gameplay.

We started working on the game after the jam started, and the levels were designed within only 2 days. We had little time to fully-test everything, and knowing the level design, we didn't end up with as much of an issue of leap-of-faith because we knew what was coming up. That was a miss on our part.

Thank you again for playing, and for taking the time to write up a detailed review.

Thanks for the coverage!

You were soo close to finishing the Pit level.

For a drawing tablet, our artist recommends the Wacom Intuos. For something with a screen, the Microsoft Surface, or if you are looking for something with more power, the Wacom Mobile Studio Pro which is what was used to create the art for Gelda.
