Watching the video, while using my Holmes-like deducting skills, I have identified your geographical position and: it turns out to be with in a few hundred meters of where I (physically) am right now! Should I come visit or perhaps conduct some serious industrial espionage, with the risk of my own life?  Cool

And by the way, it was jeb writing this. I forgot to log out / log in on Kinten's computer.

There was some kind of misunderstanding. He meant "some day" and I meant "tonight", so the date is no go it seems  Roll Eyes We're only here in Stockholm for this weekend (Swedish Game Awards).

Yeah, I thought it was kind funny that you were living in Stockholm when you have your HQ in Lund/Malmö! Well, no biggie, I'm just going to become an awesome developer, move down there and become your intern instead!

So, how was the SGA this year?

Wow, really great job on this one guys.  This is an achievement, for sure.  I love the two-character approach, and the levels actually work really well!  Definitely develop this further.

Well the platforming area was pretty fun, but what's with that boss? Tongue Seriously guys. Don't make fun of us like that. Either way, until the boss it was very enjoyable. Great job.

Very polished graphics!  The platforming was pretty routine, though, and it seemed like I could mostly ignore the door/key mechanic.  It was especially bad once I realized I could easily clear everything out with the flying guy, but still a bit fun if I ignored the flying guy entirely.  The jrpg-style boss battle with no animations at the end was too confusing and boring to play, so I quit in the middle of it.

Looks and sounds great, but I didn't find it very fun to play. Agreeing with the above comments as to why it wasn't fun.

Yeah, this was the problem of having both characters active and still supporting a single-player mode. It was hard to design real co-op situations, such as Corn helping Fay to reach areas and vice versa. We could've done something more like Lost Vikings, but then it would be... Lost Vikings.

Maybe the door element could be some kind of threat to Corn to make it more interesting. For example, closed doors could shoot laser at Corn or something. But then again, we only have so much time, and I think we did a good job. I enjoy it even when playing alone, though of course, I helped making it and have a really soft spot for turn-based JRPG battles Smiley

Thoughts: once you figure out you can fly ahead and toast everyone with your blue boomerang death rays, and then the platforming is really just a chore.  And the last boss seems undefeatable.  I got through the whole level without losing a heart, and still couldn't waste the final head form.

This game has a lot of promise though.  And the randomly generated levels, if a story is put in and a whole lot of co-op/partnered boss battles (not just the JRPG but something akin to Secret of Mana) would make this game smoking sweet.  Kind of like a twisted and drugged out Castlevania (what with the fat fairy and all).  As a demo, it's kind of a neat idea.

This game seems a clear labour of love to me, but like all of us the 1 month limit is hard and it seems the gameplay suffers a bit. I love the feel of te graphics and the weirdness of going for the coop/rotated world. Go on! Loads of potential here :-) I realy appreciate what you are trying o here and it gave me real pleasure trying it out. I feel I need to do coop though, sp isn't te game's thing really :-)

Nice one

I couldn't get this to run - first it looked for MSVCP71.DLL, which I found on the internet, then it got as far as the title screen, but when I tried to start a new game it just hung. Sad
