Chicken House

by Raphael_ - Jam Entry

This game is about controlling a house on chicken legs just via the use of buttons, valves and pressure plates.

There is a tutorial built into the game detailing all the controls and mechanics.

Control Scheme:
A and D for Moving
W for Jumping
Space to grab Ropes
Q and E to rotate Valves


We will update the game on itch.io until the major bugs are fixed :)

Nice visual choice with beautiful ambient light. Smart use of the theme using a funny design ;) I love how the tutorial explains how the game works.

I mean... you play as a giant chicken, who turns out to be house with cannons and crane. How this not fun?
Only 1 minus, no music:(

At least a pretty original idea!
Nice graphics and gameplay! Only thing I would complain on that it was hard to climb the rope, and the game really needs some sfx!
But in the tutorial it said that you could press R to repair but I could not get it to work?!
But overall nice game! :)

The graphics are just gorgeous. The game play looks like Lovers in a dangerous spacetime, but singleplayer. Having enemies coming from above would make the experience challenging and more fun. I missed some music.

Awesome idea - I like a good chicken house! Levels look cool too and really like the menu screen idea with the filling vessels. I think I accidentally fired myself out the house somehow...not sure if I'm meant to but my guy is no longer in there aha. Good luck in the future! Potato Dog

Nice visuals and I like the gameplay. Tutorial could use some more work though since it was a bit confusing. Also the amount music improves a game is a lot compared to how little work it is. Sounds as well would also help a lot on the experience.

awesome game, really nice presentation and nice low poly art style

Gorgeous graphics and cool idea. The climb speed was way too slow though, and I somehow fell out of the house.
