Here's a small update. I added a small title screen to the game.

(I need some sleep right now after ggj2017 so it's just a copy pasta of what I wrote from the ggj17 site for now)

GGJ17 site

Ode to joy is my first pico8 game. It is a simple platformer. To win, gather all music notes, and heal the sad 'Do' notes by singing next to them with all your grace! There's not much to do in this game, but hopefully you'll find it cute or something. Left and right keys to move, X or Up to jump, C to sing. (QWERTY or something, dunno)

Jam Site:

Jam Year:

MS Windows, Mac OS X, Linux / Unix, Web standard (HTML5, Java, JavaScript, Flash), Other digital platform

Technology Notes:
I developed all the game with Pico8, meaning all the code, sprites, maps, sounds were made with the tools inside the Pico8 console.

Installation Instructions:
If you have Pico8 you can use the cartridge (.p8.png file), or the p8 file (.p8), to play.
If you don't have Pico8, a .html and .js export is provided so you can play with just a navigator, simply by opening the .html file (don't forget to put the .js in the same folder)

I'm very new to Pico8 and despite being alone to make it, it wouldn't have been possible without some help. Let's give credit where it's due:

All the the persons who contributed to picozines
Johannes Richter for picozine vol 2
Matt Riche for the awesome actor and particles management in his awesome game Super Poulet Poulet
Alix Fumoleau (eolhing) and Fernand Veyrier for helping me with weird bugs on our jam site
Juliette Orain (KrakenRose) for introducing me to pico8 last week
I would also like to thank my girlfriend for making the tune on pico8, which ultimately inspired me for everything you can see, hear and do in the game. You can hear it when you complete the game.

Super cute game! Really like the singing mechanics, maybe you can push that even further if you continue to work on it! :)

Thank you :)

I would really like to go further and make it a full game, but in the end I don't think it's very fun. I mean, I'm not sure it would be enjoyable if the levels were longer. Also the sounds get a bit annoying after a while.

I have to think of something to fix those problems
