Around 4 hours into ratings being open I was looking at all the submissions to see how many posts qualified to be judged. This was one of the first games to qualify and I judged by the thumbnail and assumed It was a game an excited 9-11 Year old made. I was happy to see a kid's first game but a bit annoyed how it was one of the first games that qualified. Then I played It and this is literally one of the best game jam games I've ever played. Jesus Christ, you took such a simple idea and ran far, farther than I Could've Imagined a game jam game could go. 5 stars for all categories.

That's so flattering! You're not entirely wrong, this game was made by a couple of kids, just BIG ones. I'm 28 (Kris Camp, made most of the art, some of the music and programming), And my co Dev is in his early 20's. When making the art for the game, and even when thinking of the game design, I wanted to go for something that an 11 year old me would have popped into his gameboy and played for hours! :D So I'm happy our work captured that feeling! :D Me and my co-designer have been apart of quite a few jams, but i can honestly say this is the first one where we think we've "found the fun", and we are both pretty happy with the result! :D Thanks for playing our game! (And link your game so I can give it a go! )

riks You and your co dev are adults not kids but i agree that the art style of the game is childish
