Out of confort

by ultravioleta - Compo Entry

My first entry here, my first game made alone, with a camara, watercolours and construct 2
it´s game about a common character, into a common metaphore, with big dreams, but too little oxygen

Absolutely adorable, I love the art style, too bad the game is a bit too hard ( I could only reach the second bowl). I hope you'll continue making games :)

Great artwork. It's pretty hard, but I managed to make it maybe 5 or 6 bowls at some point. There seems to be a weird bug if you fire off the left hand side of the world - my fish just seemed to reappear further along the level? And also, if I was holding click while I died, I kept a living copy? Not sure if that was intentional or not. Anyway, nice work!

thanks a lot! Unfortunately the game was with some bugs that could not be fixed in time :P It's my first participation as a developer, I hope to come up with something better over the next ludum

I like the look of it! But the controls are hard to get the hang of, and it seems buggy. Fish keep spawning from dead fish, or duplicating themselves when they die. Should have a "get ready" stage when switching to a new fish so you don't wind up aiming a different fish than you thought. Might be better controlled by dragging a line back to shoot the fish (think Angry Birds slingshot). Don't take this too harshly though, you've got a cool visual style and I think you should push that farther.

really good first entry.
The dead fish are cute and seeing them constantly makes me laugh and feel guilty at the same time.
Sometimes the controls seems unresponsive though.

Charming art style, and fun to play!

The table is littered with dead fish, I think they wish I was better at this game ;)

Gameplay is a bit weird, it is hard to aim if you do not see where the fish has to land.
However, art is amazing, I think handmade with marker and watercolours works really good.

Charming hand-drawn graphics, simple but challenging. It took me various attempts but I was able to put a fish on the plate. Poor fishes, apparently there's no way for them to win :P Enjoyable entry, well done!

Your game made me laugh! I unfortunately trow all the fish from the table. :-)
Love your hand painted graphics.
Keep up the good work!

Such a charming game! I was feeling guilty for all my failed attempts until I 'succeeded' ... Fantastic first solo effort! And the hand-drawn graphics are delightful!

Great aesthetic. Wish I could channel some of it but with digital.

I found it hard to plan my shot because I could not see the next bowl so I had to guess.

Excellent submission overall!

The simple parallax effect works nicely with the flat paintings.

Thanks!! I take this jam as an excuse to learn, and I really liked to do it, next time I hope to be more prepared! I made some corrections and now the game have an ending! Please check it out!

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.
