Hello! Ava, Marte and Morten once again teamed up for the jam. This time we ended up following the theme both mechanically (squishy, deformable octopus) and narratively (tadpole growing up into a frog). Help them help each other through this puzzly maze!

The game ended up having to be somewhat experimental in nature; emulating a squishy octopus in a rigid body physics engine was a bit difficult! It’s not entirely bug free when it comes to said cephalopod, but it was fun and worth trying.

Two thirds of us weren’t really feeling well this weekend, but we marched on! This did however mean that some of the details from our previous entries, like dynamic camera, little cutscenes and sound effects all had to go this time around, so it does feel unpolished there, but music alone actually sort of fits the mood of this game, so…

Have a play, will you? c:

Progress and checking if GIF still breaks~

Trying a .gifv rather than a .gif this time. Gets an ugly border but hopefully at least it doesn’t stop working after the first two or so views of the post like GIF’s have been doing lately…

Here’s the current progress of the game by Ava, Marte and Morten!

(actually it’s from a few hours ago and some more progress has been made since)

We’re following the theme both narratively and mechanically.

The octopus is the dynamic shapeshifter of the game, which is a mechanic. The tadpole gradually grows into a frog during the game, which is a narrative. You swap between them and use their respective abilities to solve puzzles and clear the way.

Friends tho they become, they cannot stay here together! :’c An octopus belongs in the salty sea water and the frog must stick to freshwater. Some nasty punk threw the bottle with octopus into this puddle.

Marte and Morten have already gone to sleep. Ava┬ájust wanted to do some final work on the frog, but now thinks it’s for the best that she too go to sleep not to fall out of sync with the others for the final day of the jam. Good night and good luck to all jammers!
