So it turns out that fancy new flail you picked up in this dungeon is mega cursed and now it's trying to kill you. Whoops.
- Walk: Arrows
- Jump: Z / X / C
This was made in 48 hours for the 2021 GMTK Game Jam. The theme was "Joined Together," so I took inspiration from the trope of cursed weapons being impossible to unequip and ran with it to make a game about trying to dodge a hostile weapon that's tethered to you while tricking it into cooperating so you can progress.
All code, design, and assets are my own work.
You can also download and play this on itch.io!
This is awesome! Everyone come play this game! I haven't finished it yet but this is a really cool mechanic and it's just fun to play. The tension of the chain and how you can slightly pull the flail around feels really good, and the visuals are cool too.
Just an all around cool game, well done :)
@tinysorcerer Aww, thank you so much!
Yeah adding the ability to pull the flail around was hugely important for getting the game to feel right (and even be playable, to be honest - it was really fiddly or even impossible to get some positioning to work without it).
