Banira Shio

by etherealWhisper - Jam Entry

Banira Shio is an arcade flying simulator (why not?) in which you must deliver love notes from pupil to pupil under the attentive look of Sensei (҂⌣̀_⌣́). In-game instructions are provided, but to deliver a letter simply fly through it and leave it on the desk of the pupil who matches the envelope's color and gender symbol. You can deliver several letters at once if they are addressed to the same receiver.

The plane is controlled with the mouse.

Deliver love while performing amazing flight maneuvers, achieve combos and score as much as you can! ヾ(〃^∇^)ノ♪

A game developed by Eric Oliver (@_saprolin) and Yolanda Mojena (@etherealWhisper).

Really nice and polished entry. Love the theme, fits perfectly in the one room concept, and the graphics, the visual style is really coherent and pleasing. Controls are pretty straightforward, but the game gets pretty challenging when you have to deliver notes to the students in the center rows.

Congrats for the game!

Nicelly polished, loved the visuals, audio and idea which really fits the theme. Also love the plane physics. It is quite hard to play tho. The only thing I didn't like was that when I lost the speed, camera jumped quite a lot which could have been done better I think.

Wow, cool graphics and gameplay, I love it. But it's a little bit hard (not obvious what to do) at first.

Very nice, and the paint in the back of the classroom is absolutely beautiful

Wicked. Great music, detailed classroom, nice idea. Would have liked to turn inverted y-axis on. I got the controls immediately bc. I've played flight games, even made them, but what to do next was not 'obvious' and took me many crashes to figure out (despite reading the on screen text.)

But overall a very good entry.

ohmygosh, this is so cute and fun and well made. So incredibly well polished. Bravo!

Paper plane physics are fun! It took me a while to understand who am I supposed to deliver to, partly because the dropoff zones are not clearly marked and I didn't understand gender signs.

Also, I take that 死 on the whiteboard is a joke for those who can read kanji :D

What a lovely game. I enjoyed it so much. Aerial Genre is also one of my favorite genre. The gameplay was so smooth. I felt like an ace pilot! The audio and graphics went so well together. Overall a nice game. Keep it up!

I love this game! Visuals and audio design are amazing, and I really love the gameplay.

Gameplay is simple but super challenging and I'm still terrible at it, but it feels polished and fair most of the time, so I find myself replaying it again and again.

Amazing entry, congrats!

Awesome idea and beautiful implementation.
However, I expected to find web version of the game clicking on "Web" link.
Anyway, it's a very good submission!
Well done.

Absolutely amazing! My favourite moment was when I started to deliver letters successfully and then the music changed and I was just flying around and everybody was in love :D This would be great even for a non-jam game!

I like the concept, but the controls are too sensitive. Nice game!

Really cool idea! Love the music & sound. The graphics look nice too, although some more simple textures would have been nice. Camera was really annoying at times, which made me pre-maturely quit the game.
All in all a great game with nice sound!

Love this game, but it is way too difficult for me.

Fun and challenging... there's something so satisfying about zooming around a paper airplane. Good work, I would recommend continued development on this :D

Dec 21, 2016 @ 10:50am

Really nice game, though I found the controls to be really frustrating. I played for around 10 minutes without delivering a single letter, but maybe that was just me.

Really fun just flying around and a really nice atmosphere. Couldn't seem to actually deliver a letter to anyone? and flying physics seemed to bug out at times, overall really good.

Dec 21, 2016 @ 8:43pm

Nice game! Very challenging, but well made. I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Love the game :) I've included it in this video, see that for in depth comments.

Great idea ! I could play it for hour just to fly with the plane

Pretty funny idea and really polished. Good work!

Super cool! Quite challenging. It would have been nice to have some sort of indication of how close you have to fly to drop off a letter.

Dec 30, 2016 @ 8:34am

Great idea and execution, I love the aesthetics.
I got some weird jittering camera movements when I was heading to the ceiling. Ah, and also, as a "flight simulator", I was expecting an inverted Y behavior, maybe you could add the option.
Great game!

I love so many things in this game! Idea music graphics especially drawing of pudi on blackboard! Great Job!

Really good. Physics are great and I love the main idea, also the aesthetic. I had fun playing it. Well done ++

Very nice game. I like the controls, but it did take a bit for me to realize that i was matching the cards to hair color.

Really cute idea, very nicely realised. It would have been nice to highlight the drop zones in some way, I just guessed to fly it over the table (possibly this was in the tooltips, but because they were on the game-over screen, I had already clicked "restart" before I remembered to read them!)

I felt that the hitboxes on the letters could be bigger than the meshes, but that might just be because I was bad at the game :P

There is some challenge in that great entry. Nice use of the theme and concept
