Description

The game is supposed to be about a guy who, after getting out the shower, falls down the drain and has to fight through the sewers.

A game by a bunch of noobs. Our first time for most. Despite the broken state, it was ultimately a learning experience. In terms of learning to work as a team, this was great experience. For you, the eager player, this thing sucks. Seriously. The challenge is trying to complete the game without it crashing. Whatever. Seriously, be as harsh as you want for reviews, because we deserve it. But, ya'know, appreciate it for what it is. A lesson. Not a game.

    "The challenge is trying to complete the game without it crashing." Indeed! Honestly I tried my best, but the collision freeze (gotta be a loop that never ends) got out of hand.

    Too bad, the "wetness" idea seemed interesting, but I couldn't go far :<

    Got to the third level. After extensive tries I believe that the collision errors are a result of your sprite bounding boxes being different sizes or in different relative positions (make sure all the sprites for your player character are the same size, same origin, and have the same bounding box dimensions) because whenever you hold the space bar standing on the ground he changes to the floating animation and is stuck in the floor.

    Not entirely sure how the concept fits with the theme.

    Otherwise, great sounds and props to whoever designed the main screen! For a first try this was pretty good.

    The game crashes if you press or hold up while the character is in the jump animation but on the ground. With that information, I got all the way to the fireballs. It was really fun and balanced. It's a pity that the crashing ruined it all.

    Ahaha, I like how you turned a negative into a positive.

    I was trying to download this game for Mac but when I tried opening it, I got "Drain'd can't be opened, it should be moved to the trash"...

    And after I clicked "ok" the game was automatically moved to the trash bin. Wish this could be fixed!

    I'm glad that it was ultimately a good learning experience for the team though!

    Despite the crashing I did manage to get through most of the second level, up to the rat.

    What's there (besides the crashing) is not bad. I think if you guys had another 8 hours or so to fix the bugs and polish up the art it could have been a pretty cool game. This was my first game jam, so I'm worried I totally overshot the difficulty in my game (Parum), and that can technically be as bad a curse as crashing. So don't feel too bad! This has been a learning experience for sure!

    lol so read the description. I like your honesty. I was gonna comment that the game crashes after a few seconds, but you beat me to it. Is there actually a method to not crashing it? haha
