Glasses Guess

by thu_denny - Jam Entry

Made For Ludum Dare 37.

You are a duckbill. Shortsighted as hell, the world looks totally different for you between having glasses and not having them. Also, the rooms look different and act differently ,too.

By taking on and off the glasses, playing with boxes and fighting robots, you can find your way to save your girlfriend.

You need following keys to play the game.

I don't think deadly lasers hurt less when you don't see them, but that's probably just me.
The concept is really interesting and well executed.

@dunin: We are now fixing the bug of those stairs, thx.
@Broxxar: Haha, a kinda sad ending.
@rayriver: 确实“按Q”的提示在游戏中一闪而过了,还需做得更明显...谢谢提醒!地刺的判定已经改过了,原链接的文件已更新
@resty: 同意,关卡设计还要提升
@pcmxms: Thank you, but we are just new to game making and haven't figures out how to make the Mac version :( We will try to make it later though.

The first time I played, I got stuck on the stairs near the part where it said I had to find keys. I tried jumping and moving, but it seemed like I was stuck there. Had to restart as a result.

But the second time through, I played and completed it. And I really like it! The beginning and ending cutscenes were so cute. The music was great, nice bassline. If there was one issue I had about the audio, it was that I don't really like how the music fades out before it loops. I love the art as well.

The hardest part about the game was the controls. I had to pause for a moment to remember which keys put on the glasses and which keys took them off. It might make sense to map them to one key, perhaps? Other than that, it was a good, solid entry. One of my favourites too. :)

oh! Nice! Only fo windows? Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

@ijzm: cool reply!
Actually at the very beginning, we planned to add three or more glasses so that it was necessary to set two keys for switching between the different levels. Now that it ended up with only two states, one key("E") is enough. We have updated the file now and some other bugs are fixed :)

@Greek85: Sure we can make it on indiexpo.

wonderful entry! very interesting.

this theme and design really lovely;also reminds me an independent-Animation <Short-Sighted> which i have seen severl months ago, so attractive to me:D
other aspects: the BGM also welldone,espically the mainmenu-music,went over the recording for times.pixel art so neat and solid,also wonderful!even the blur version is cool enough.these animation and the audio-effect match eachother super well and let me experience so happy. great team-work!

* bug report:when i got the 3rd key and fall from the high-tap,i was very happy,but then i trapped in fornt of the stair with the final-door was right under my nose...Sadly..ToT
nevertheless,i although enjoy this progress.

happy new year
hope more your great game in 2017!
