Fish Selection

by Cigi - Jam Entry

Story telling about a fish and a a bigger one. You will grow up and eat a lot of plankton, but with a cute looking.
Really straightforward, but finish the game without one dead is really hard.

Download seems to be missing a "Fishy_Data" folder. Nice, helpful error message :).

Oops. Looks like you forgot to include your assets (the data folder) with your executable. (I've done this with unity as well).

I love the mood of the game. Just seems peaceful. A little music would be great to amplify that. I didn't like the top down shark part (so hard so quick) and it took me a while to figure out what to do on the last scene. The fish swimming animations are great. The game has lots of character. I don't see much of that. Great work :)

Oh and what did you for 2d in unity? Did you just write your own code or use 3rd party stuff? I'd like to do 2d in unity but it's been tough for me so far.

Thanks PickledBrain ! I note it for the post-compo version :)

We had a music, but we didn't have enough time to put it in... The last scene has been made in last, so we didn't really test it. I was worry because i didn't add an info like "don't forget that you can use SPACE to fight !". For the top/down part I wanted to do something like in VVVVVV when you have to avoid enemies. Well, it was a bad imitation obviously :)

Everything is plane with shader Transparent in 3D object. Before this game, I also made a game with 2D Gui, and it's not so bad. But i prefer 3D object with planes, it's better to control objects with animations, shaders and stuff like that.
I coded everything yay :) I'll add a video of my chronolapse asap.

Very nice graphics. The ending felt a bit abrupt.

Nice mood. Good graphics. I had fun but it was a little confusing at what to do at times. Otherwise, very nice!

Yes I'd enjoy a timelapse video of this if you have one :)

Great gag with the growing screen-size. Prompts are simple and efficient. nice work!

Also, it's "Fish eat plankton", plankton doesn't have a plural. You can make the 3d-text "sharp" by increasing its size, but decreasing the font-size in the inspector.

Great game. Nice graphics and mood. Background functionalities (water effect etc.) are cool. Good job!

Those graphics were really cute, and I was definitely feeling the mood too (some music would have helped, I think). The movement speed is a bit slow, but maybe that's part of the game.
