Innocent Cherry

by goost - Jam Entry

My first game jam, my first entry!
It wanted to make more of a visual novel and has no gameplay.
I think, that was not the best idea, content creation is hard.
Next time, I will focus on game play.
Nonetheless, I had fun and learned a lot, so please enjoy!
(Linux version is untested!)

WASD/ARROWS - Movement
Shift, hold - Run
Space - Jump

There is still a bug and for the love of it, I cannot find the source.
Sometimes, but not always, the screen will stay red after a cutscene, if one goes right first.
This can be avoided if one goes left first and sees the end, then restart with 'R'.
Should one get stuck in the red screen, only a restart of the client helps (close and reopen).
Sorry about that!
If somebody knows how to fix this, please tell me.

It's simple enough, but art is gorgeous! Great work!

I couldnt get through much before the screen was just red. was also a pain to restart without being able to get through text a bit fast. I like the look a lot though.

Graphics and dialogs look good. But there are too much bugs to get an idea...

Art is fantastic, it would be nice to skip through the text.

This wasn't bad! But it wasn't great either. For a first time it's totally fine, but there's literally 1 choice (unless I missed something). The audio was pretty good, unfortunately unratable.

Aug 25, 2015 @ 1:41am feel to me. I had thought the game had just frozen after the text had come through.

Pretty cool. Artwork is wonderful. I Fought. I liked the jump graphics too, even if the character jumped high.

Lovely art, and nice mood. The bloody font ads a lot to it, and the representation of headache by the red flashes. Good to see someone else thought of this kind of story too.

Nice graphics and history but i found the text writing sound to be really annoying after 2 minutes, maybe a way to skio the text writing animation? Good job overall

Oh man, why I had to play just before bedtime! Mood creeps me out in very best way. I like the element of thunder - it is a blast :)

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
