A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The LD theme was "Small World", and as our team spent some time thinking about how we could incorporate that, we toyed around with the idea having a world with limited horizontal movement but with enormous vertical potential. Then we were reminded that one of our friends would always say: "keep lookin' up", and that gave birth to this game. The idea of this game is that an old villager and his grand-children were bored of their small world, until a wandering traveler gave them a new perspective.

Much of the game is still unfinished; we were unable to really flush out the plot and we opted more for the mechanics/assets side stuff instead. Even so, we're really proud of our submission, as it is our first game ever and our first game jam ever :).

We plan on developing this game further, so stay tuned and feel free to leave feedback!

Some game mechanic explanations:

Space: Jump
- The longer you hold space bar, the higher you jump.
- You cannot jump out of a ground attack or if you're airborne.

A: Attack (Aerial or Ground).
- Aerial attacks are quicker, but weaker and less range.
They can be canceled upon landing.
- Ground attacks are slower, but much stronger and greater range.
You are completely immobile during the ground attack.

D: Horizontal Dash
- Dash to the direction that you're facing/moving.
- Dash cancels attack animation, allowing for trickier attacks.
- Can be chained with Vertical Dash and Attack.
- Consumes mana.

E: Vertical Dash
- Dash upward.
- Dash cancels attack animation, allowing for trickier attacks.
- Can be chained with Horizontal Dash and Attack.
- Consumes mana.

Command + Q: Quit the game.


Edit: Windows download is now working! Forgot to include the data folder, apologies!
