Big Sad

by Ghandhi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Mac and Linux launcher may not work.

Game has two endings.

Arrow Keys and WASD to move.
Left Mouse button to restart.

Feel free to post hating comments. I like them more than no comment.

48h is still not enough for me.

I feel like I cheated by never collecting any coins. The game is cute!

The big sad! I liked it

I got to the heart without touching coins, thinking it was special reward, but all coins guard the heart!

solid everything, I liked the graphics

As a platformer it is rather good, however your use of the theme is rather generic. Although, my game is based on the same principle. Overall your mood is nice and cheery.

Great graphics. Well polished, too! Wish it had music, though. Great job!

I liked the calm mood in this one. Really focused execution. :)

I also did the no-coin thing the first time I won. I also found the hidden billboard.

It's a good attempt! The pixel art is very nice looking and you've chosen good colors.

In a platformer, having the camera lag BEHIND the character is pretty annoying. If you move to the right, you actually can't see where you're going at all. Consider locking the camera to the player, or playing with those settings in general.

Otherwise it's a pretty OK platformer, keep working on it and see if you can get it to a more finished state!

The game was very nice and I loved the two endings.
It looks very polished and the platformer mechanics are great.

I only wish it had a little more content.

Cute little game :)
I love the graphics and the colors!
It's a nice platformer, but as someone else mentioned, camera should be fixed dead on the player!
Maybe the controls were a little too perfect? could be nice with more momentum and gravety when moving around.
I'd love the game to be a little longer, but i know 48 hours isn't that long :)
I enjoyed playing it!

First try, I thought i exploited the fact, i evaded coins. But seems like it was a good idea anyways. ;)

Mac error: -bash: /Users/SkyTheCoder/Downloads/bin-2/ /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

You can run this with the jar launcher, though.

Nice pixel art, cool idea with the second ending.
Great game for an Indian pacifist.

This is a fun little game, it could do with a bit more playtime. Good work!

Very cool entry, man! Beautiful pixel art. The camera was kind of annoying but that's ok. I made it with two endings! I did some exploring and found some signs too ;)

Nice simple game. Tap to restart was a bit awkward to me, after the time ended. I was expecting an automatic restat.

Very clever idea the "try with no money" thing :-)
There are a few annoying moments where you jump but you do not see where you are going to land, but it's still a good game!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
