Chepi: The Story of Acorn

by Gelatoangelo - Mini LD 61 Entry

A little spirit guide, named Acorn, is on a journey to find his soul child, but to do that, he must traverse the massive, dangerous world outside of his village! Become the wind beneath his umbrella and help unite Acorn with the Child of Legend!

Menu/Player Controls:
W = up
S = down/crouch
A = move left
D = move right
J = select/jump/float
ESC = quit

Stuck in the mud? "Jump" or "duck" your way out!
Can't get past large gaps? "Flap your wings!"

First off, this game is missing some important features and I'm disappointed that I couldn't get them in on time (I gave myself three days to finish this). Second, there's no wall collisions, so be careful not to slip out of the room.
Finally, my weakness was coding.

EDIT: I finally got the main controls and collisions worked out AND although the float mechanic isn't where I really wanted it, it does work! Hope you have quick fingers! You still can't collide with walls horizontally, but that doesn't mean you can't pretend!

Found the block collisions a bit odd, but good entry. I included it in part 1 of my MiniLD #61 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look :)
