Warning: This game is intended for 16+ due to spooky demon, otherwise it's pretty tame.

You have you, yourself, your legs and a shovel, and what better time than now to head towards the local burial ground where the 'Fish of Infinite Curses' is said to be buried? Your time is now!

-- Controls --
Arrow keys: ??? what?? what do they do????
Z: Dig!
X: Hit! Hit it! Now!
Spacebar: Become closer with our planet Mars.
Bonus tip: You can hit things while jumping!

Special thanks to John and Wynaut for hanging out in voicechat and helping me with math and/or logic.
More special thanks to this cool website for counting time spent working on the jam as well as for entertaining me.

    Very interesting game! I included it in my GM48: Collect! compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

    Hey, that's pretty good! Neat idea, art was nice enough, music didn't get tiring, and it was quite fun. Digging to restart was a cute touch. I wish the window size wasn't made for ants though.

    Stomped by a bird leg and stabbed by a flying dagger! Love the art, it was very charming. Gameplay was clever and engaging. Would have liked to see more done with the sound effects but the music was good. Especially the contrast of the main game's music with the silence after you die, it was super grim (in a good way lol). Controls were a little awkward but nothing you can't get used to. A quirky, unique, enjoyable game.

    I really liked the art style. Reminded me of Digger t rock. Gameplay was original and fun!

    How can he stay so happy while afflicted with so many curses?? Very simple and effective design that makes great use of the theme. Everything you collect adds obstacles in your way.

    Really interesting game, with charming animations. A very inventive idea, and I like the sound design and music. The only thing that the game lacks is feel. controls feel stiff (this seems intentional though, so I dont want to judge too hard), and there is a noticeable lack of screenshake and juice. But overall very solid jam game, that I really enjoyed playing!
