Sky Tea

by OysterKLAN - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Use the arrow keys to move and R to restart. Try to max out your tea quality by collecting coins.

Seeing as people seem to love the music, here it is on my soundcloud:

Okay so the sound has a few issues loading in the browser, but besides that, I hope it works fine. Also I hope the Construct 2 .capx format is okay for the source.

simply a flawless game

graphics are great, audio is immersive, gameplay is amazing - excellent work !

the gravity feels a bit strong, but it's perfectly balanced to the jumps one has to make

This is awesome! Reminds me of Fez a little bit. Nice to play a game with such a good mood. :)

Great graphics and audio! In my opinion some checkpoints would be great, but besides from that it's a great little game!

Polsihed and beautiful. It took some time to get used to the jump.

Nice one ! And platform are not pixel perfect, so my broken keyboard didn't had an effect on the gameplay (even if I would have perferred the jump on space or both)

Beautiful aesthetic! Tough though, I'm rubbish at timing these jumps. ;__; Love the music.

Hits all the right notes! Controls are very nicely tuned.

Wow, pretty good game ! =)
Music is really coooooooool.
Controls are a bit rough, and checkpoints could have been a good thing.
Well done !

Very beautiful game, I love platformers and this one looks very good. Consider making it bigger. Did you get inspired somehow by FEZ? I had that feeling.

This is great, really great. I found the jump brutally quick but that's such a minor crit. Great work.

I want to say that I loved it, but the controls are too hard. He moves too fast and the jumps require too much precision. Most of the time I had to be focusing on jumping before reaching the edge of a platform, because with his speed, at the moment I would normally press the jump button he would be already going out of the platform, so that made every little jump a challenge (and not a good one).

Hey everyone, thanks for your feedback. I would like to continue development of this game after the Ludum Dare, so I will take note of everything here. Firstly, I didn't realise it was so difficult until after I published it, as I didn't get anyone else to test it. That was a bad oversight. It's a shame, because the levels get more interesting as the game progresses, and I'm not sure if anyone but me has beaten it (^ ^). If you do finish it, post your tea quality in a comment! Secondly, yes I was inspired by Fez. That game is beautiful in so many ways.

I enjoyed interacting with the lumpy falling monsters, even though they were often the death of me! I haven't beaten the game just yet, but I'll keep trying.

Apr 30, 2013 @ 12:56am

Such a simple and demanding platformer :) The gravity was a bit strong, but it was balanced out by the perfectly spaced jumps. I was quite impressed by the level layout. One of my top games so far!

Good game. Pretty. Very harsh gravity, makes it pretty unforgiving.

SaintHeiser says ...

Owh! Very atmospheric, visual polished game =)
But incredibly frustrating with controls in flash games. Can't beat third level =(

Cute, looks nice and plays fairly well.

This game made me so happy. The music, the goal, the graphics, it was all really fun to play. I like the presence of the theme in the level design; you essentially have two levels per one tea brew (go to flower and get back). The two sub-levels get increasingly different from each other when you have the level get destroyed and enemies disappear which is a great progression. The challenge is great as well. Fantastic.

May 2, 2013 @ 9:24am

Graphics and music great. Felt the jump speed was way too fast and it made platforming not fun. Jump times should be around .7 seconds. Also agree on checkpoints so you don't lose so much progress when you fall.

The graphics are beautiful, I really like the color scheme.
Jumping took some time to get used to, but I definitely enjoyed making some tea :D

Really nice job. A bit to hard for my platforming abilities though ;P

Cute game, Adorable character! Unfortunately the controls felt too floaty to me though so i couldn't really enjoy playing it.
But Music is lovely too :D

This is lovely, although the controls are a bit fiddly. Beautiful atmosphere. Well done!

Was having fun, but lack of checkpoints began to frustrate me in a large level I got to, as I was just doing the start area over and over. I also fell through the floor at one point, and that didn't help :P (maybe I accidentally pressed down though, possibly). Cute graphics, love the music.

Tea quality 98! Awesome, the whole game is really well designed and thought out. I love the variety of challenges you were able to make with just a few simple concepts. Very difficult, but didn't make me want to give up. ;)

May 7, 2013 @ 3:55am

great game but I think if you make the player a little slower and the jump a bit higher it would be perfect

KEFIR says ...
May 7, 2013 @ 4:30pm

Really nice platformer! Feels good to be in this pleasant world. Graphics is really good. Jump feels a little too fast and uncontrollable

Jeremias says ...
May 8, 2013 @ 2:37pm

I like the look and feel, but the jumping is somehow a bit unresponsive. Sometimes I walk and definitely press the jump key, but I just fall down. The gravity is too strong anyway. And nice background music!

Loved graphics and misic design.
It was very frustrating to start the whole level from the start after I accidentially fell.

Nice ;)

I like the art style (except for the player) and the mood, but I think it should't be so hard to play as it is now.

i played on level and had to stop -- the control were nerve wracking -- i felt like i was gonna die on every jump -- nice game it was fun

I'm not a big fan of the controls (too sensitive and the grevity is really strong) but otherwise I liked it. Great work on the animations (clouds when you die, little details here and there, etc)
