Item Phantom

by Leddev - Jam Entry

A short sandbox-like game with emphasis on item management.

If WASD doesn't work, you probably have a controller plugged in. Try unplugging it.

Good game, I absolutely love the art style. I found the game very relaxing. I got the present at the end.

The graphics is really awesome. WASD + mouse is quite hard to implement (failed at it several times). Loved the way you made items interaction.

Very good game with interesting mechanics and nice graphics. I was curious what will machine throw at the end. I am not sure what it was, but I managed to open it.

Ah, the live of a gardening ghost is full of toil and waterbuckets!

Love the art & the smoothness of the experience (& the way you can go fast and sort of bounce the ghost around the room), but it got a bit tedious after a while....

Had to restart though, since the first time I dropped the seeds behind the wall (from the perspective of the player) & couldn't see that it was growing!

Beautifully relaxing. Really fun controls. Amazing mood.

I really liked the graphics in this one, very nice! Interesting concept, although it got quite repetitive quite fast. The controls are maybe a bit too floaty, even for a ghost.

Very interesting game! Good graphic and a very good puzzle game! Good job!

Great little piece, found myself lingering in it longer than most LD games. Very nice graphics and feel, and even though it was mighty repetitive, it had a nice, engaging field to it. I would love to see this turned into a more realized game with more complex crafting.

The controls were really fun and I loved how smooth it was. Occasionally I seemed to have issues where I couldn't move the mouse cursor while I was moving the ghost, which was a bit frustrating.

Interesting concept overall, though a bit too repetitive for a lot of the challenges; I think this is a solid foundation to build from.

Getting this (unusually harshly worded) error message on OS X (10.12.1):

“Item Phantom” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

I like it!

Could use a bit more ambient sound as it can take a while to complete. The ghost's movement feels a bit too "floaty" for me but it's manageable. The item interactions feel super nice and it's always a surprise waiting for what will pop out of the box next.

Although being a weird concept it's amazing how it manages to be intuitive without using practically any text.

Also, top mark for graphics!
