Quite tricky in the beginning. The latter part seems easier when keeping up momentum. I enjoyed the music choices. I think the ambient music is very fitting, and makes me want to climb up and find a breathtaking view.

I was thinking to myself "a ledge-grabbing mechanic would be nice..." and then saw your end-screen ideas. :)
If you want to keep going with this, I'd love some hidden areas to find, and lots of decoration. You could even throw some puzzles in.

Interesting game, thanks!

I have to admit : this game is too frustrating for me, so, after many falls, I just gave up.
But, you've made a good music choice, and I think this game is cool. Keep up the good job!

Wow, guys, thank you for your comments, I appreciate it. Well, looks like I have to work for couple of months to complete full game :)) Thank you again :)

It looks and sound good, but I gotta be honest with you, first person platforming is the plague of our times. If you really want to do it you gotta do it extremely well, with ample room for error and only small penalties for mistakes. Having to retake the whole course due to a single failed leap is not fun or challenging, simply frustrating.

Platforming itself is also not exciting, you jump and jump and jump some more. One old student project springs to mind called Tag: The Power of Paint. It has loads of first person platforming, but also a cool gimmick. It is great, you should try it out if you haven't already.

Mirror's Edge also has some nice first person parkour features, but you already knew that I reckon.

Needless to say, I didn't get to the end so I have no idea what your plan is for this, but I do wish you luck. You'll need it.

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. Many solo participants 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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
