Future Rabbit travels back in time and meet Stone Age Man.... will Future Rabbit escape and get back to the future again?

I am new to Unity and programming but had fun making this platform game. I made the pixel art in Pro Motion NG.

I have found the font on Dafont, and the music/sound on freesound.

Feedback is much appreciated! :)

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description.

I just uploaded my game on indiexpo:

Sounds cool with the video - looking forward to see it! :)

I like the unique art style and game concept.
But i have faced issues like
suddenly rabbit is gone and now moving camera left to right no rabbit on the view.
Also can improve on the player movement.
You can some game over screen with restart option to try again.
A good game for a "new to Unity" developer in limited time.

The character dies and nothing happened. It looks promising in the aesthetic and narrative proposal.

@paruthidotexe: Thanks for your feedback, it was really useful! I used the first jam day on a platformer tutorial, so I could really feel the time preasure. But the jam was a very good learning experience! :)

Wow that future rabbit was fast! I struggled a bit with the jumps due to the movement speed, although it was a lot easier when I started pressing jump and then moving once in the air. I'd say work on giving the character a little more weight. Also some feedback when you get hit would help as I didn't realise those dark rocks where hurting until i noticed my health had all gone. Don't mean to be negative though, it looks good and has a really nice individual art style

@SecondDimension: Yeah, the game mechanics could use a lot of adjustment! Just started programming four months ago so I have a lot to learn... I will think about your suggestions next time I make a game :) Thanks for your feedback!

The art was so good but the controls were so bad due to movement speed being way too high.

@demogorgon: Glad you liked the art... and you are right about the controls:)

Not bad for your (first?) unity platformer, I don't have much to add to what's been said.

If you want that high movement speed, you could have added acceleration, so when you press A for instance, you add -x acceleration to velocity x until it reaches max. And you can multiply velocity by friction in the update loop if you want to make him stop slower/faster.

@lightsoda: thanks... and really cool idea!

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.
