LD #20 - Never Let Go, Sam!

by chamberlainpi - Competition Entry

Just renamed the "Windows" link to "Web" (I didn't realize at the time it could be edited).

I still have to edit a major issue with the loading-screen freezing at startup, the game can't be played.

I imagine those kinds of show-stopper bugs can be fixed without affecting the game's "eligibility" in the compo?

The game is made in Flash, so it's for the "Web" actually, I don't know why it didn't have that option in the list.

Click on "Windows" and it'll take you to it!

You can label your own links, so you can change it to say WEB.

Same here. The art in your journal looks really good so I hope you fix this so I can check it out!

My Chrome browser freezes on the loading screen. Firefox, however, has no issue. Strange, as the plugins ought to be the same.

It was a nice interpretation of the theme, but the jumping had me growling at the screen. Once I started jumping in one direction there was no way to change it :P

@TellusE: haha Great to hear someone was able to run it in another browser! And yeah, the jump was intended to work that way. It makes it a bit more challenging to carefully make your jumps correctly from the moment you press UP. But I could at least include that IF no directional keys are pressed then it will lose it's momentum and free-fall straight down.

The only problem is, not every keyboards / laptops handle simultaneous keypresses at once, so trying to say... mash the UP + LEFT + RIGHT key down may not all register (at least from what I have experienced on some models).

Still hanging on the loading screen, even when downloading the SWF file.

I have trouble running it too.. However I was able to play it on my other computer. I thought the graphics are great, I especially like that little touch with the leash being flexible and dangling around when you walk side by side. The one thing that could use some spicing up is the gameplay cause the concept and art is amazing.

Good job on your first LD :P

If only you fixed that loading issue. Fancy art!
