Never laughed so hard in my life once I saw the penguin slapping the fisher in the face. An explanation at the beginning could be useful because I didn't really get it at first. Also perhaps show how many lives you got? Didn't see that anywhere.

This was fun! I haven't seen this style of game before and it was really neat to experiment with. I ran into a crash when I tried to run with only "Nothing" actions, but otherwise the game works just like I expected it to, and it's an interesting and innovative idea.

Nice game made me thought :). Audio is a bit repetitive and penguins and fish noises are aggressive. Yuo should increase the speed of animations once you actually begin to fish and once you feed penguins. It will give more rhythm to the game I think.

Decent game, requires a lot of thinking and planning but that just made me feel smarter when I worked it out.

This was a fun puzzle game. The graphics were a tad all over the place, but they fit the mood. The SFX were hilarious. The gameplay was fun and made me think, but the moving fish were annoying because I couldn't really tell what square it would be in once I started the fishing. Also the wait time when you gave multiple fish to the penguins was a bit tedious. One last thing is that I didn't feel this game really fit the theme. There was one screen for sure, but it changed between the levels and the setting didn't really feel like a room.

I liked the graphics a lot, especially the borealis and the curved line.

It's really humorous of that art and the angry penguin, the gameplay has also the great potential to explore. But the onboarding and the guide should be added, the moving of the fish can be a very funny (chance) or be a very skilled(by figure the moving rythem of the fish and count the steps needed.)

It's really a nice gameplay with a very humorous atmosphere~ bravo!

The humor with slapping penguins which steal your life are great.
And the hook reminds me on that alien creature of Prometheus. :o

By the way. I have changed my downloader on my game page and you can download it know from itch. :)

Nice innovative mechanic. Not too hard to understand either after a couple seconds. The planning part can be a bit tedious but if it was done in a more intuitive way it would be awesome and not really take away from the core gameplay, in my opinion.

Great game overall. The penguin slap killed me!

Fish AND penguins in a single game? I'm sold!

A really challenging but engaging game. I really like the art, especially for the backgrounds with the lights. Though I guess penguins don't really exist in the north, but WHATEVER I still like it nonetheless. :P

The music, while pleasant, does get rather irritating to listen to, particularly when trying to figure out the later puzzles. This is mostly because it's just a very short loop, so I would suggest expanding on it (puzzle games tend to work best with longer loops).

Really nice game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)
