I almost can't believe how LONG this game is, from your playthrough of it in the video collection. it's honestly quite impressive. your own skill at it also really underrated how hard it is to make even a single jump as ADMA... yeah I gave up within the first screen.
I love the glitchy wall-climbing mechanics, very reminiscent of Clickteam platformer physics. I think the best part of this is how the "game over" screen doesn't actually force you to restart, it lets you keep playing the game but sped up. I'd love to see more re-interpretations of failstates in games that simply change how it plays!
re: bonus, I'm really glad I used so many voice samples in this game, it seems to be a hit!
and yes it is possible, I specifically playtested that level in isolation over and over until I was sure it could be done, just to make sure that anybody who got fixated on winning would be able to. however, testing the level in isolation is nothing like testing it in actual practice, where by the time you can try it, the game is such a chaotic mess that it becomes extremely impractical to even know where to begin. also the benefit of getting to the end of the level is about as rewarding as any of the other minigames so... don't sweat it!
I've updated it to now have audio as originally planned, but I had to hold back on it for the jam submission deadline. the original audioless version is still available, labelled "(jam version)". feel free to judge either edition!
ditto to what ifo said! I just had to come back here after finishing it to comment on it! the rhymes are so charming, the glimpses into her life and her troubles are so compelling. the ending made me sad because of what was lost, but I really like the ambiguity given towards the future, and the implicit statement of moving on in life.
thank you so much for making it free during these times.
this was wonderful to read! it's exciting to learn more about how far back furries go. I especially loved, and related to, the pages about self-discovery through involvement in furry <3 thank you for writing this!
(spoilers) this is so intense! I felt like I had pretty much one by figuring out what the three cubes are before lining any of them up, but then I needed to figure out a fourth one and I can't get past that part... I love the effects though and the build-up of tension. this is such an awesome, abstract approach to the theme!
Thank you so much!! I'm glad you had such an emotional connection to the game- I'm honestly blown away by how many people have told me a similar experience! Thanks for hosting the Wumpus Jam, this wouldn't have happened otherwise :)
Thanks, and I hope your increased brain size can still fit in your head!!
All the music in IQ is from either unreleased scraps or finished albums, and most of it can be found in my Gator Bride Sound Team releases: https://ruffty.bandcamp.com/
There's full track credits in the bottom of the README file, if you want to know what exactly is what.
Ahh I'm glad to hear my thoughts of King's Field were mostly on the dot!!
I didn't realize increasing muscle power increases vision range, that's really clever! I'll be sure to scour the game a bit more with that in mind :)
A constantly tense and mysterious adventure... Now I finally know what I'm missing out on for not having a gym membership!
The opening shot of Muscle World made me think of King's Field 1 (the original, Japan-exclusive one) a lot, and I guess that was an accurate feeling because of the very slow (not in a bad way!) pace, and obscure environmental storytelling.
I am very intrigued by the description mentioning secret locations and endings but I can't seem to find more than the red orb, and one ending... Guess I gotta do more push-ups!
Ahh the name is so good, I love it! This was such a fun puzzle to wrap my head around. Early on it seemed beyond me to predict, but I kept going at it, and I eventually managed to complete each puzzle, and feel very accomplished with how far I got in endless mode. Good game!!
