Thanks for participating, playing and rating in this Mini LD! If you haven’t played my game yet, you can do so here.

The Idea

I had the idea shortly after reading the announcement. A platformer is like the average game so it seems obvious to just make an average game aka some Generic Platformer and then play it reversed from finish to start. The rest just came naturally from thinking about how you would play a platformer backwards. However i think that fun gameplay is more important than the game making sense, so it unlogically gets harder from finish to start and the controls are not reversed.

What went right

  • I made an amazing game.
  • The idea is great. It’s both easy to do and easy to expand and flesh out more.
  • It was loads of fun.

What went wrong

  • All art is bad because i’m bad at art.
  • I didn’t think of a better name.
  • I could have added more content if only i wasn’t so lazy.
