Overall I really enjoyed playing this game. I smiled the whole way through and shared it with a few others. I got lost after I got the shovel though. It might be because I am slow.

Very nice entry!
Neat graphics and music.
I think, more and better sfx would add a lot of depth to the mood and gameplay.

Really cool game :D the musics were really cool, the gameplay was fun (eat this shovel, ennemies !), the art was good, and the whole game is wonderful

Awesome game ! It's beautiful and very fun ! I didn't find what to do after using the shovel, though :/

Quite an achievement! I like the art style and the humour! Cool JRPG gameplay too.

The dwarf part is way too steep of a difficulty curve. Really cool game though. I love the graphics.

Well done ! What a reeaaally complete game ! Love the graphics.

Awesome game!!! I love the graphic style and the music as well. You did a lot of content for a jam O.O!!!

One of the best I've seen

Dec 13, 2016 @ 8:46pm

There are a lot of things here.
Cool graphics, cool audio, cool story,
maybe too many, or just need to be more challenging (maybe the next time do less assets and more levels?)
But this is a little remark, that's a really good stuff!

Incredible graphics, especially the cutscenes. I can't believe how much you managed to get done in a weekend -- feels really polished!

You've made a charming, tiny little pokemon game in 3 days... incredible!

It's impossible to take the coin (((.but work is done

Firellon says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:43pm

Graphics and Music are Excellent
Gameplay could use some polish, as there's no need to use defense or heal when you can just attack all the time
So beautifully looking...

patrickgh3 says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:46pm

Absolutely love the environments and characters (I wanna pet the Sphinxter). The gameplay flowed really well, except the gnomes took a while. Overall the game felt really cohesive. Great job!

Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:51pm

@Firellon : you can't beat the game if you don't heal...

Nicely done! I LOVE IT! Lydia is his sister?

jotson says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 6:02pm

Excellent. Music, art, gameplay are all top notch. Dwarf section was a little tedious.

menip says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 6:02pm

Really liked this. I feel like the dwarves are a bit too punishing in some cases (seems like line of sight is defined wierd), but other than that it was absolutely amazing! I hope I can get to this level some day :)

peredm says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 6:05pm

From far the best game I've come across in this Ludum Dare! Every detail was so cute and funny. I loved it how every enemy was something a kid would imagine he's fighting against. The idea and design are amazing. Congrats, guys!

Dec 14, 2016 @ 7:06pm

Thank you all for your amazing comments :)

@WarmLemon: yes ! Lydia is indeed the sister of Jacob and Cid ;) what a cunning little girl, right?

For those who found the dwarves level was a bit difficult, could you help us improve it? What would be better?

Mouch says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 8:39pm

Game-play-wise this game has a few missteps (stealth section with too little sight, ...) and is too easy in my opinion.

Other than that, this game is on point. I loved the graphics, laughed at (most of - you can't get them all - ) the puns and the music was blending in perfectly.

mipo says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 2:59am

Very fun and polished game! The art was great which isn't surprising considering the amount of artists but what impressed me was the consistency across the entire game. The style was pretty much the same on each screen. I thought the combat was pretty stale and the only time I didn't just press space was during the final 2-3 fights. This is a very complete game and a lot of fun exploring (:

Dec 15, 2016 @ 3:58am

wow, that's not just a team, that's a whole art department! It's a great game. it does seem to be that you made a game opposite of the the theme, I mean, it's like an open world rpg in this thing!

Nikteddy92 says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:22pm

Best game i found so fare in this LD37!
Well done!
The art is AMAZING and the gameplay great and smooth!

Pajama-Llama says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:26pm

Really cool! Though -no surprise- I didn't find the theme really used. The art and gameplay was both nostalgic, polished, and humorous, so kudos for that! Loved how each zone was different, couldn't have been easy.

Green Soda says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:45pm

Oh my!! the ART STYLE... I love the colors...
I love games like these, it bring me back...
I expected the art to be the same with the cutscenes (Vector style). That aside it was an amazing experience overall, I give it 5/5

Dec 15, 2016 @ 5:17pm

This game is so cute!
I really loved the sound design of the tomatoe!
The difficulty s not really there unfortunately, same for the fight mecanics but with a game like this i did not really care. Nice nice, i shared it to some friends.

That was something awesome. Especially links to kid's movies etc...
Played with great pleasure

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:45pm

Great game! Fun, with a good, cute, well written story (except for a few typos here and there ;P) and highly polished. I'm impressed at how much content you've packed, not only in terms of assets, but in mechanics as well.

Amazing!

HoraceRIBOUT says ...

One of the best game I play in this jam ! Full of idea, awesome graph and little details, really joyfull and in the last version, nearly 0 bug !

nilead says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 10:04pm

WOW. Incredible for a gamejam. The animation is super smooth, the music fits perfectly, the style is charming and with very nice detail and the combat feels fun. It's so nice to see someone dare to tackle an adventure RPG in a jam... This would be a really awesome game if developed further. An adventure RPG with THESE graphics, turn base combat and the "child-world" theme I remember so fondly if the mother series? INSTA-SOLD. 10/10 would fight evil pogo sis again

Enjoyed it, cool to see some non-linear levels in this Ludum Dare! Was a little bit too easy on the combat, but aside from that it was very cool

Dec 16, 2016 @ 10:10am

oh! Nice! hahahah! it's amazing with its "pokemon-style" XD 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 ;)

Dec 16, 2016 @ 12:51pm

Amazing and polished game! It's not an entry that respects the theme that much but the overall work is impressive! Really great job everyone.

Dec 16, 2016 @ 1:27pm

This is a truly impressive entry for a 3 day jam, there's so much content and polish. I love the pokemon-esque feeling it offers, while having its own personality. The music is super fitting for an adventure and graphics are simply fantastic. The yoyo as the main weapon is a very clever choice (hadn't seen one in games since Spinmaster!), which goes perfectly with a young character. Personally I enjoyed the sound effects (especially the enemy ones). I found them super funny and could imagine the team recording them during the jam, as all of us have done sometimes. It's always a fun moment. As said, a truly remarkable game for this jam, I'd love to see an extended version of this game! Congratulations!!!

bigbuggames says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 4:47pm

This is one of the best entries I've played! Outstanding graphics and sound. I liked the stealth part with the gnomes and the humor of the overall game. Maybe you could include some kind of progression system in the future. Keep up the good work!

antishow says ...

Outstanding! Very impressive art and sound.

mooncalf says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 9:04pm

Excellent entry. I would have liked some checkpoints with the dwarfs - a second game mode in a jam is fantastic though. Art, music, sound fx were epic.

Well done!

Amazing entry! Graphics are great, sounds are great, everything is just great!

Sorak86 says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 3:13am

Wow, amazing polishing and content amount for just 2-3 days!

Also, very good art and humor, gj! :)

One of the best entries I played so far.

(Btw, I came by because you tried to play my game and webgl wasn't working, sorry bout that. It should be fixed now in case u wanna try again)

Great game it has a nice mood and feels really complete. It's amazing you created this in such a short time. Mad props.

Very very nice :) Reminds of old pokemon game I played on gameboy. Great job!

Justin Mullin says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 8:44pm

This is fantastic. Super ambitious, but everything was totally polished even given the surprising length for the format. Very well done, I'm impressed.

Riftpoint says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:36pm

Great game! It is a very nice tribute to the Pokemon rpg series. The music and the art style are amazing. Good job

Dec 18, 2016 @ 2:56am

Stellar job in such short time constraints. This is a great little game- I played it to the end and defeated the dark golden pog bearer :)

tellus says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 4:31am

Very fun overall. I did find the dwarves section a bit frustrating, and most of that could be fixed with giving the dwarves a "view" indicator, because it was really hard to figure out when they could see me.

DOXM says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 10:12am

Is's a funny enjoyable entry!

Dec 18, 2016 @ 2:03pm

Nice adventure game with really cute graphics ! The infiltration part was a bit annoying since we can't see far enough to exactly know where the ennemies were.
But you did a good job on this game, it was pretty good !

fufi says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 5:26pm

Excellent entry! Great mood and graphics ! Well done! ;)

Quetzakol says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 10:45pm

Wonderful game ! A lot of content, with beautiful music and graphics ! Brioche needs his own game :D

Some small problems : the fight musics and sometimes too loud compared to the main music and were a bit annoying. Also I thought the fighting parts were too random, with too easy fights in the beginning and the final boss that I could not beat because it was too difficult, but I did not really find a strategy to beat him.

Digital says ...
Dec 19, 2016 @ 8:46am

Really great game! I enjoyed playing it :)

Gamepopper says ...
Dec 19, 2016 @ 2:10pm

The fact you made a full RPG in 72 hours is impressive enough, but this is extremely well polished and contains some clever humour to it as well. Amazing stuff!

madlee says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 4:30pm

Really nice and polished game. Loved the overall style and theme. I did run into a unity error when jumping over the spike pit with the dog, so I couldn't get past that part.

pmarincak says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 7:10pm

This was a really cute and fun game.

Unfortunately I got stuck in a few places and had to restart from the beginning. :(

story, art and audio are fantastic!
you guys are nuts!
bravo! <3

Palarus says ...
Dec 26, 2016 @ 11:49am

I complete the game and I just want to say... WOW. It's amazing what you achieve guys. To do that and 8 on the team requires a lot of teamwork. Congratulations! I don't have more to say. Good Work!!

axoona says ...
Dec 26, 2016 @ 6:57pm

very nice entry, nicely polished!
I found the dwarves pretty tricky
amazing what you did on such a short notice. congrats

Minato4th says ...
Dec 26, 2016 @ 7:07pm

For me it is amazing!
You all ready done a practical full working game! I think this game can be developed in something bigger.
Nice job and go on!

ema1ih says ...
Dec 28, 2016 @ 8:39pm

Love it, very entertaining! Also i loved the little plot twist at the end, nice graphics and audio.

Dec 29, 2016 @ 3:55am

Well this is pretty freaking cute. The stealth section was a bit unforgiving, even with the dwarves marking their territory with gang signs.The art, audio and humor were the high points.

Intelli-Gents says ...
Dec 29, 2016 @ 3:57am

Your game got applause from everyone after playing it. This was beautiful.

banana4life says ...
Dec 30, 2016 @ 9:17pm

Funny little game, but for me it doesn't fit really to the theme.

Jan 1, 2017 @ 7:37pm

Sooo polished and tons of content.
I really enoyed playing it and I'm not a big fan of turn by turn combat but it was quite easy.
The art is amazing, that's a superb entry, congrats!

Mieeh says ...
Jan 2, 2017 @ 12:58pm

Amäzing overall, the graphics were pretty, the soundtrack was catchy. The only small grudge i have is the sneaky-gnome part which felt kinda impossible at times and the combat in the begging which just ended up with me spamming space to just quickly pass by them. Other than that I loved this game!
5/5 overall!

Jan 2, 2017 @ 1:39pm

Great game and impressed at the amount of content you were able to get in. Such a gorgeous looking entry with alot of charm and character. Also liked the twist at the end and how everyone was brought back to the reality of childhood and forgetting the time while playing. Clever entry.

Jan 8, 2017 @ 7:11pm

Lovely graphics, well made game, though I did glitch out at the end... I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/7ZuTwiufN-U
