Damn, this is really good. I think this might be the most polished game in this game jam.

I really like the dark and broody graphics, really sets the mood and atmosphere. I especially like the 2.5D shadow effect you got there. Movements are ok, although you can't really control yourself mid-jump, making some precise jumps a little difficult. Music is great. The story/plot is really intriguing and teases the audience well.

Some complaints: I can't tell if I am being hit or I'm the one hitting, as the animation/particle effect is really hard to see (maybe I'm blind lol), a human "hurt sound effect" would do nicely.  I can't exit out of "item drop" mode, meaning I have to drop something if I want to look at an item. Also, being able to look down would be nice, as I can't figure out if a ledge drop is safe or not (is that what the rope is for?)

But all in all, real fine work you got there.

Breaking news, demon lady with giant booba assaults four freshmen students on their first day of school. Bystander claims the demon duo are merely "annoying", not dangerous.

Ok, on a more serious note, I especially like the hand-drawn art of the enemies. The music choice is also good. The RPG gameplay is also quite solid and satisfying (can't go wrong with RPGmaker).

One complaint I have: the "selected" and "not selected" cursor could use a bit more contrast, I can hardly see what I am selecting. The skills between the four students could be more unique and serve a more distinct role (healer, tank, DPS, etc), as I find myself spamming Catapult and Shock for all 4 turns.

But all in all, a good and wacky RPG game.

Nice platformer game. I like the sprite work and the lighting effects you had. The story is also quite interesting.

The camera view might be a little too small, as I can't see where am I jumping to. This also means  that the moving platform can't be seen initially, making me think that there is no way to progress (at first).

Cherry is best girl confirmed.

Nice short RPGmaker game. The premise is kinda interesting, playing as the "final boss" in a simulation and having your levels reset every death. The story is kinda interesting as well.

The early game grind is pretty annoying though. Also, it's hard to tell if you are on fire, as the fire icon is present regardless of your current state, the state is shown by the blue background, but it's hard to see.

All in all, nice work.

This is a great puzzle game, love the visuals. The random move selection also adds flavor and challenge to each puzzle. It also has high amount of polish.

Only complaint, is that it is hard to tell apart the different row and columns, so I might end up missing certain spots. Also, clicking the levels doesn't seem to work sometimes?

It's a simple, fun shooter game. I like it. I can't think of any complaints.

Maybe you can add better feedback when your sprint is ready, the icon can be easily missed.

Also, what's with the starting splash screen? Unreal, CryEngine, Godot, AND Unity, lol, are you some kinda programming god or something.

Yeah, seems like Unity 2020 LTS is really buggy when it comes to WebGL, according to forums? I admit I don't have any experience in web development, so I don't think I can fix a browser specific bug anytime soon.

Also...DING DING DING, we have a winner! Yes, it's Gout, ohhhh and you REALLY don't want to suffer a gout attack, trust me.

Man, this is the first time someone actually went and did a deep analysis on one of my game. I'm honored.

Best deep lore review 10/10, My Eldritch Leg is a social commentary, confirmed.

Anyway, thanks for playing my game!

Uhhh, there's not supposed to be any success-sound?...that is strange.

The "bzzz" sound is to indicate a "blocked" QTE, as you can only hit the right arrow key once per half cycle (the locked state is indicated by the translucency of the QTE bar). This is to prevent the player from simply spamming the right arrow key, and to synchronous with the player's slow stride. The pain/break sound is a failed attempt.

The locking of the mouse is an expected behavior, it's to capture the keyboard input with the UI buttons. (except the main menu)

Hey, thanks for playing my game!

Woah, its THAT hard, huh? Yeah, maybe I should have increased the regen rate of the green zone, and made it more lenient. The first chase is definitely winnable though, at least for me. (That's why getting external play-testing feedback is so important lol). My guess is that the base regen rate might be too slow, making it too punishing for screw-ups early on. I might buff the player, if I update the game.

One tip I can give for the QTE is to hit right BEFORE the green zone, not IN the green zone, this increases the likelihood of succeeding, as your reflex will always lag behind the gauge.

You are right on all accounts, I wanted to make this game relatively hard to illustrate the pain of this disease (but not THAT hard). You can buy items once you reach a checkpoint (convenience store), which can be used by holding left arrow key and hitting space.

Also, that's the wrong disease, sorry, lol. I didn't even knew RLS exist, so that's something new I learnt today. H

Nice game. I like that each shot cost mana, meaning you have to be careful with your shots, creating an interesting strategy layer. The real time strategy shooter is quite fun, you actually have to think before you shoot/move.

The game feels a bit too hard? Maybe I'm just bad at this game, but you die very quickly. (the green slimes got more health than the player?!) The click detection of the unit is weird, you cannot click the unit themselves, only their status bar. Also the mini-map is too small, i have to squint my eyes to see the units. (the UI/UX can be improved).

But all in all, this is good progress on your game!

Wow, that's a very well polished game, reminded me of platformers like Hollow Knight and the Ori series.

My only real complaint is that the screen in the WebGL version is really small for some reason? And I can't maximize it.

Plot twist: The lawn mower has no driver, because the lawn mower is a sentient AI, lol.

I like the clean UI, makes it look professional and chill. I think the money earned should be used for something though, like lawn mower upgrades, etc.

Hungry Axolotl is cute.

You can just camp in one corner to farm points.

Lol I got the bad ending, I'm sorry slime god :(

This is a fun and short game, i like the graphics and sound effects, the story also gives it an extra flair. I also like the game mechanics of managing the slimes while trying to defeat the ballistas, without getting the slimes killed.

Nice game, I like the cartoon graphics and the aliens. The tween animations was also neat.

Nice game. I like the squid theme and the 3d models. It would be nice if the small squids could swim as fast as you, waiting for them to catch up to you is annoying. The music is also nice.

Great game. It reminded me of old-school flash games...now I'm feeling nostalgic, hahaha.

Good game, it is very innovative. The gameplay is a little frustrating though, but the pixel art and music is awesome!

Nice puzzle game. I like the sci-fi element, the graphics, and the puzzle with teamwork feature.

I feel the movement speed is a little too slow, it feels like it takes forever to get to one end to the other. Also, the box building seem kinda glitchy, I somehow managed to glitch myself into a wall, lol.

But all in all, good work!

Wow, this is a fun game. I like the idea of forming an army by defeating foes, and becoming overpowered. You did a MUCH better job than me in making a "defeat foes to become stronger by taking their ability" game. The implementation is clean, simple, and the core idea is executed well. Great job! Has huge potential for expansion.

Also, I managed to find an exploit where you can sit still and let your minions do all the work.


Right-clicking at this point will lag the hell out of the game, lol.

To be honest, I was lazy, and I was running out of time, so I didn't properly design the levels (using tilemaps). There was supposed to be another tile there (edge tiles, like the ones on the right), but I probably forgot to tile the left side, lol.

I like the story and dialogue. The gameplay is kinda wonky though. Also, the 3D visuals looks really good.

Simple runner game, it's nice. Some sounds/music would be nice, and the movement controls are a little slippery. But good work, man.

Good game, this is a very creative approach to a puzzle game. I like the idea of different axis moving different objects.

Nice game. I like the monsters and the horror theme of the atmosphere. The movements could be a bit faster though, and your light friends don't do anything, they are just collectibles.

Cool game. It was really difficult, but I like the challenge of maneuvering around with limited jumps. Some sounds/music would be nice.

Great game! It reminded me of Hollow Knight. I like that your health is directly linked to the light source, and there is quite a lot of content for a game jam.  There seems to be an animation bug when jumping, the transition time between each state is probably too high.

Lumi is kinda cute, ngl.

Dumb rabbit wouldn't stop jumping around and becoming meat.

Good game man, it's quite fun and I like the special effects (meat and blood)

Nice simple platformer. The use of collision layers/groups as a puzzle element is kinda creative.

Nice game, that is a lot of content/assets for a game jam game, nice work! Only complaint that I have is that you can just farm in the beginning area, making exploration not so rewarding. But everything else like the sprites, animations and music were great! I also like the unique attack system, where you attack in a grid rather than an arc.

Caterpillar game, nice. The kidnappers are a bit too overpowered though, avoiding them is very difficult. The models and animations were cute though.

Good horror game, I like the red mist monster. I like the idea of a team of unique survivors trying to escape the space station, but it seems like it is possible to soft lock yourself if some survivors die. All in all, good work!

Funny game, but damn, you nearly blew my ear drums out lol. T-posing magikarp is also funny.

Cool game, this is quite impressive for a first game with minimal experience.

There seems to be some strange glitch going on with the sprites? They seem to load in and out at random? o.0 Also, the collision tilling could use some work, there are some places where it is nearly impossible to jump from/to.

But nice work on your first game! Finishing a game is a great accomplishment that few people have achieved, lol.

Nice bee game. The bee shooting mechanic is really creative, it forces you to take your shots more carefully as the number of shots are determined by the number of bees in the swarm.

The switching of weapons could use a bit more feedback, as I don't know what gun I'm equipped with.

Also, the win bee after the defeat of the boss is funny, lol.

Nice concept, the presentation is very good and feels like a professionally made puzzle game.

The game mechanic is kinda frustrating. I was stuck on the first level, because manipulating the magnets were a pain. I couldn't get past the level with the green switch, as the floating magnets refused to touch the gem and switch (on the other side). Being able to pull the magnets in mid air would be nice.

The animations and music was nice though!

That is great presentation and camera work, I especially like the part where your 8 "firefly" (?) buddies help you to fly straight up in that cut scene, and the music/sounds are well integrated with the gameplay, great work!

There seems to be a slight bug with the 2D collider/PhysicsBody, I can cling on to surfaces with the circular body.

I actually clung on for dear life when the fireflies failed to bring me up, lol.

(1 edit)

The presentation was great, and the pixel art looks good too. Nice work! The parcel delivery was kinda fun, but there really is just one mode of operation (check for bombs >> check weight >> check stamps >> check account >> accept/reject), so there is not much room for variety, but it definitely has potential. Also, this barely fits the theme, lol.
