Another Day In My Tiny World

by Albatr - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You progress through time by walking to the right. As you walk in your tiny world, you will meet other characters along the way
Try interacting with them by jumping (but don't overdo it), waiting near an other character can also be considered as an interaction, some won't like if you stand too close before they know you better, so try standing a little bit farther. It all depends of their moods...

I know the game is a little bit "experimental", but I hope you'll enjoy the experience :p

Have fun !

lol, cute. I'd love to see where you go with this. Btw, the comment about it looking like parchment paper cracked me up ; )

Interesting idea. I liked the graphics a lot. However, it seems like there's just not much there yet. With some expansion, it could be a really neat game.

Nice graphics and atmosphere. I wish that there was more to do.

Love the ambiance, made it a pleasure to walk around despite there being little to do (first time I encountered 2 characters; second time I encountered none).

Thanks :)

You're right, maybe I should have increased the encounter probabilities a little bit :3

What I liked:
- Pixel art and monochrome style.
- Relaxing 8 bit music.
- Parallax scrolling and graphic details.

What could be improved:
- After walking for a while it gets tedious, so I suggest improving the gameplay. Maybe adding a quest and shorting the distance between characters would help.

Not much of a game there, and I think it would have been nicer if it could have been scaled up (if it could, then I missed it). Fantastic, retro graphics with nice touches, eg, the puff of dust as you hit the ground. Couldn't really interact with people other than making them unhappy (story of my life).

I liked this game, very ambient and soothing! I found the player's purpose very ambiguous, though I assume this was your intention? :)

Thank you all for playing.

About the player's character, every day look the same, he lives in a very small world. So, yes, basically, he has no real "goal". But he meets other characters, and regardless of their reaction to your behavior, they make you feel less bored by your everyday life. Or at least, they make the day you meet them a little bit more "special" than the other ones...

Maybe I will add some new features in the future :)
