Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

You are Pickle Lad who has gotten into a bit of a pickle: the kitchen is on fire and there's some rather hostile tomatoes too. Do you have it what it takes to get to the fire exit alive?

The game is an infinite runner-ish arcade game with random levels. Use arrow keys or WASD to control the character.

Wow this is really good looking! Fun to play, got stuck in the scenery but that is just minor details! Great job!

Great music and nice graphics. Game seems fun. WebGL version just seems buggy, couldn't play for too long before the thing crashed.

Thanks! Yeah, the WebGL version didn't get a lot of testing and even if it works, it will be uglier and slower than the standalone version. :)

I'm not a fan of pickles but I can get behind this pickle!

Great music really fits the gameplay. A little slow in the beginning then it gets wild, not sure how it applies to the theme but very fun <3<3<3

Funny entry and the music just nails it! Pretty weird use of a pickle though, get it? All right...! I'm getting out of here..

I liked the music, and this was a fun game! A pickle with legs was a little disconcerting haha! I almost wish the pickle was just bouncing around with no legs, because it would maybe have been less creepy, but then would the game still have the same charm? Maybe not. Fun game!

Love the art - what trick did you use? Audio is fine but gets a little annoying with time. I finihsed the game in first go so it didn't bother me much. UI is kinda meh but I liked the <3 idea.

Overall: It was fun. A little weak connection to the theme and you could probably make walls look better - in the same clay like style.

Cheers! :) For the art I just did some quick and dirty modeling with subdivision surfaces for the smooth results. I also used a color palette, lighting and material properties that are low in contrast so that everything looks smooth and low contrast.

Graphics were very good. Music was amazing. I wanted to have arms, and for the tomatoes to be a bit more sinister. Good entry.
