Entwined is a cute puzzle game about two cute lovers who help each other across 18 levels of flipping colors!

This is my very first GM48 Jam entry and I almost ran out of time and missed the submission deadline. But I managed to submit with 5 minutes to spare. Sorry about the bugs you might encounter.

CONTROLS:

WASD to Move ( Should be Arrow Keys too, but I apparently forgot to add that even though it says Arrow Keys in the Game, Sorry!)

Space to Switch Characters R to Restart Escape to Exit

CREDITS:

Lazertrax - Code/Design/Graphics

Hope you enjoy playing!

DISCLAIMER:

The Jam version has a bug where you won't be able to progress beyond level 16. I've uploaded a fixed version to "itch.io" I strongly encourage you NOT to rate it based on the fixed version but still you can check it out if you want to experience the remaining levels! By clicking here!

    This is so good. Really good puzzle game, I loved every minute of it. Good amount of levels too (even if the last 2 are not playable in the jam build). The art is great and the music is chill and doesn't get annoying. One of my favourites for sure.

    I assume this the level 16 bug that you mentioned? Can't move Luv onto the red flower

      Yes, this is the level 16 bug, Luv can't get onto the red flower. I fixed it though in the post jam version which is linked in the description. Thank you so much for playing and for the nice feedback!

    Well, you weren't lying about the game being cute :D But oooooohhhhh my god does this game need a rewind function.

    It gets really tricky, which I really like, espicially with a pretty simple concept like this one, but it's also very frustrating having to restart the whole level for a simple misstep. It's no big deal on most levels, but for level 16 which is a pretty long sequence of moves that requiere some trial and error / foresight, it's incredibly infuriating. Especially when you're restarting so much that you mess up on the earlier step and end up being stuck on the freeze button :(

    But really, it's the only issue I have with this game (and the bug that prevents me from finishing level 16), so you did a pretty good job I guess :D

    Oh, I'm forgetting a small detail too! When you exit the level with one character, the game should auto swap to the second one. Alright that's it!

      Thank you so much for the great feedback. I totally agree that the game needs a rewind function as well as auto switching characters, I just I didn't have enough time to implement that during the jam time. Glad you enjoyed playing!

    Love this game! You had a lot of tiny details that made a pretty abstract puzzle game feel very immersive. The character movement when active, the eyes closed when another character was active... Also love the camera movement. It could have all been on a grid that stayed centred in the screen. But the little camera movement and tile animations made everything feel so alive. Also thought the music was fitting and very calming. Love the amount of levels too! Puzzle felt like it had a lot of personality. Tutorial text was nice, and liked the characters had names too. Really made me feel more invested than I would have been otherwise. Nice job!

    Honestly...how many extra levels are in the fixed version? If that doesn't say how much I love this game, I don't know what does!

    The biggest issue with this game is my incessant desire to press R instead of Space when trying to swap characters :/

      This is why I wish I didn't forget to add the arrow key controls to the jam version. Thanks for playing!

    Very cute and polished! It's too bad about the lvl 16 bug. I like how the two characters help each other such that the gameplay matches the story.

      Thank you so much, glad you made it all the way to level 16. If you wish to try out the remaining two levels you can download a fixed version that I linked to at the end of the description, you'll find a continue option in the game's main menu :)

    The art was great, the characters were adorable and the puzzles were well thought out and challenging. This could absolutely be a puzzle game I see myself sinking some serious time into!

    Really liked this game.

    Loved this. The concept was great and well executed, and the little characters were adorable. I loves the detail of them closing their eyes when inactive. I will be playing this again!
