These are great points! Part of the reason I spawn Eddie off screen is because he’s usually in “Walk” mode and I wanted to give players a little more time to take in their surroundings. But spawning him on the first tile in “off” mode would be waaaaaay more intuitive. Thanks!
Hey thanks for writing this out and expecting so much from the game. I think these are valid critiques of the level design, controls, and mechanics. About halfway through I decided the game didn't look pretty enough and I spent a bunch of time tweaking the art. As a result of this and other decisions, level design was kind of crammed in at the end and I think the mechanics suffered and I fell back on established platformer tropes which did a disservice to the underlying ideas.
While I'm not sure if there was a chance of EW reaching its full potential in just 48 hours, that doesn't invalidate your critiques and if I end up going forward with this game I will take this post to heart.
Thanks! Fire tends to spawn around where your Chef is to encourage moving around. Since your multiplier gets reset when you're hit I find the best strategy is to play hyper defensively and keep your eye on your Chef at all times. Glad you enjoyed it!
I think you almost did too good of a job making this seem like a markov chain bot with visuals when it turns out to be so much more! At the same time I almost feel bad spoiling the twist because its so affecting. Thank you for making it, I'm really glad I played it, I'll try to stealthily recommend it to some friends.
Thanks for reporting this. Shields only grant their stats after you use "Shield Up" and while the "Shielded" status is active.
If you still don't get a stat bonus after using Shield Up, let me know!
Thanks again, hope you enjoy Haque!

First, make sure you have the latest version of Haque.app. If Haque still doesn't run after a re-install it could be a Mac permissions issue, try enabling "Allow Apps Downloaded from Identified Developers " in Security & Privacy and if that doesn't work try enabling "Allow Apps from Anywhere"
Sorry about the inconvenience, we'll get it fixed as soon as we figure out what's wrong.
Hi, I'm Kevin Cole from Massachusetts!
I'm a full-time writer/spriter/designer/developer and I work with my friends to make games that are weird and important to us. Our first game was a puzzle-platformer in reverse called Project Maiden and it took two years and a successful Kickstarter to make. Right now I'm working on a roguelike called Haque which was successfully Kickstarted in October!
I started game development by doing game jams in college and I'd love to do more jams and make small games too because those are the games I love to play on itch!
I mostly lurk and I'm pretty shy, but this community rocks and I wanted to say hey! Thanks for bein' cool.
