Every Man Is An Island

by brian - Competition Entry

A Unity based platformer, based on the buoyant effect of dead bodies!

Didn't get half as much done as I wanted to, but alas time was close and i'm happy with the art and interaction of the stuff that is there!

Update 28/04/10:

Didn't have any time to fix some of the problems until now, but the windows version should work properly, the collision problems in all of them should be fixed (remember unity kids, don't move colliders with transform.position even if you've only got 5 minutes left in a compo!).

Please re-download the windows version and review it again, alternatively clear your cache for the web version.

I couldn't get the native Windows version to work (msvcrt error) though the web version works fine.

First game I actually finish !

First 2d-pixel unity game I've played! Very short, and I seemed to die at random occasionally (even on an island), the controls are a little bit weak, but the pixels are quite nice (especially the dolphin) and the title's great! XD

jplur says ...

well it's ok, the graphics are quite nice.

fydo says ...

Fun, but short and quiet.

Dig the graphics though!

youdonotexist says ...

The character movements were a bit strage at first, but once I got them down, this platformer played very nicely. Fun game!

Art and Animations were done very well!

pwnmonkey says ...

Controls took awhile to get used to but i finally beat it =) good game

KavuDX says ...

The movement felt a bit clunky, as if you were too heavy, and the lack of sound was also a problem, but the graphics were kinda nice.
After dying a lot on the "dolphin" I finnaly got the treasure :)

increpare says ...

I did it!

PsySal says ...

I like the pixel art style, and the water is really nicely rendered in particular. Good job!

Hempuli says ...

I like the simplicity here! The scrolling is a bit of a laggy sort, but otherwise the gameplay felt nice. :)

shockedfrog says ...

Windows version is quite horribly broken (jumps go ridiculously high and camera doesn't scroll, properly) but the web version works ok. Shame it's so short but it looks and plays pretty good.

pekuja says ...

So those platforms are actually dead bodies? O__o They look kinda abstract.
The game is pretty good. I think the physics are very good so the character feels fun to control. Once I managed to jump down through a platform, so there are some bugs it seems. The game was over too quickly :-( It could also use some music and sound effects. Would love to see a longer version.

philomory says ...

Not a half bad mechanically, though it's incredibly short. On the other hand, I adore the graphics, and the interpretation of 'no man is an island' was pretty cute, too.

Endurion says ...

Yay, I found the treasure. Now I can go float with the others... :)
Quite short, but nice and pixely.

Tozy says ...

I liked it untill... it finished. It's really short, but i guess you can extend it latter.

Entar says ...

Fun, short, tough, funny. Sort of typical gameplay, but good game nonetheless.

SonnyBone says ...

Reminds me of Leisure Suit Larry for some reason...

Perrin says ...

Not a huge amount to this but what you did was really well made. Loved the art and feel of the platforming. Wish you'd had time to make more levels.

Tom 7 says ...

Ha, yeah, I got a Leisure Suit Larry vibe from this too, I think because of the size of the hair. :) Cute graphics, plays fine, very short.

Jonathan Whiting says ...

Cute, well realised, and enjoyable. A perfect example of how small but focused is a good approach to LD. Possibly a bit *too* small though.

eli says ...

Haha, very nice literal interpretation =)

Really nice graphics going there. I love the whale.

A bit short, and maybe could use some character-movement tuning (like another game I know of ...). Also, sound would greatly improve it.

Good work!
