Kaylin Norman's Generic Series: Platformer

by TheOMP - Jam Entry

The original idea behind the game is that it was supposed to look extremely generic - but have an extremely original concept. knowing that I'm among a lot of creative people in this jam, this probably has been done before. but Sense I didn't have the time or energy to flesh out the concept (and a lack of understanding of rapid prototyping) I just made the first level.

Even though this isn't my first game jam entry, its my first one that I've made in 3 days. I'm really excited that I got to do this and I'm glad that I had the encouragement.

You'll see that this game isn't well planned out and mainly focuses more on the aesthetic than actual game play (well it really depends on how you look at it.)

I hope you enjoy playing what little game there is to play :-).

The Music is a loop I made called "Loneliness" I made it specifically for this jam.

Good fit for the theme, and nice work on the audio track. The music is both well done and lonely sounding. Some of the controls were a bit fiddly (especially jumping when on the moving platforms), and the game froze upon touching the 5th fragment. It's a compelling story, though, and I believe some polish and plot closure could make it quite interesting!

For a LD Game, the intro is waaaay too long. It would be fine normally but in this context of playing dozens of games a day to rate, it's too long ^^.

Good music, good atmosphere, but awful controls on moving platforms : difficulties to jump, and something crossing through the platform.

Also, the music stopped itself after a while. don't know why :(

Audio track didn't play, latest Chrome Win7. Gfx felt a bit jerky, not sure how the game related to the theme.

The intro was so long I almost skipped it. Cool sound and ambience. Sometimes I was unable to jump on platforms for some reason, and that got me killed.

Thanks for the reviews guys. Sorry for all of the bugs and errors. This being my First LD and all. This will obviously be the last time I work with "Construct 2" for a while.

Decent effort but as others have said the game feels a bit broken. Nice music though!

The intro was a bit too long, and it's impossible to jump off moving platforms (or land on them sometimes, resulting in death). The music was good, the graphics meshed together nicely. Overall, it could use a bit more work on the gameplay working better.

The intro wasn't that long for me (maybe because I read first that it was way too long). I really liked the music! And the jump seems to have a problem with the moving platforms. And an ending would be cool.
