    Great content, it's so obvious you put a lot of care and love in your game, can't wait to play it! You're also very charismatic in front of the camera. Thank you for creating stuff

    Your game was one of the first ones that I played and I got lucky that youtube recommended your channel XD, I liked the last level, because I thougth the first ones were easy for me and it gave me a perception of the difficult your game can achieve if you continue to expand new levels, I also loved the ending animation and your devlog is high quality!

    • Inbound Shovel

      Thank you so much!
      I'm glad to hear the last level landed well for you!

    It's been really great to explore this corner of TheXvid to see what awesome stuff other devs are creating - it keeps me motivated when working on my own devlog videos :) Subscribed!

      @Inbound Shovel Man, what the hell? There was more stuff in my comment. Did I accidentally erase it all before writing that last sentence?

    • Inbound Shovel
      Inbound Shovel  11 months ago +1

      Thank you!
      And I totally feel you, other devlogs really inspire me to keep making my own.
      I'll go check out your channel later when I get a chance!

    Congrats on finishing the Jam! Hope you are feeling better! I really liked the art that you made, and loved the parallax in that front layer!

    • Foster Turtle
      Foster Turtle 11 months ago +1

      Definitely payed off, great job!

    • Inbound Shovel
      Inbound Shovel  11 months ago

      Thank you!
      Yeah, it took me quite a lot longer than I anticipated to get that front layer parallax working correctly, since I wanted it to thin out in the middle, but I'm glad it ended up working out!

  • Kristoffer Spissøy
    Kristoffer Spissøy 11 months ago

    Nice game so far! But I'm getting stuck on a level and I can apparently walk through some blocks and ice blocks🤷‍♂️

    • Inbound Shovel
      Inbound Shovel  11 months ago

      @Kristoffer Spissøy Oh interesting, maybe there's just a bug I missed, haha! Unlucky!

    • Kristoffer Spissøy
      Kristoffer Spissøy 11 months ago

      @Inbound Shovel Yeah I get it with intersecting hitboxes, thats what I thought happened. But it was one iceblock where it visually didnt look like the hitboxes should overlapp. It really looked like the human should get stuck between the obelisk and the iceblock

    • Inbound Shovel
      Inbound Shovel  11 months ago

      @Kristoffer Spissøy Nice, glad you got it!
      Yeah, if the character's hitbox intersects with a block's hitbox, then you can just walk out of the block. I went back and forth on whether to let players do that or just to squish them or force a restart, but I went with walking through blocks since I thought that would be more fair, but it could definitely go either way, heh!
      Thanks for playing! :)

    • Kristoffer Spissøy
      Kristoffer Spissøy 11 months ago +1

      Update: I figured the level out :D
      (I could still walk through some blocks though)
      Really cute ending!!

  • Daniel Harborne
    Daniel Harborne 11 months ago +1

      Thanks for the sub, and best of luck on your devlog! It's hard, but super worth it!

  • Fearsome Fawkes
    Fearsome Fawkes 26 days ago

    I don't say this to many TheXvidrs, but you might want to speak a little slower. Like. 25% slower. There's just not quite enough time to absorb what you're saying before you're already onto the next thing
    Other than that, loved it, and you earned a sub
