Feedback is welcome.
Thank you.

Notice

I know the controls are a little bit slippery, that's because of the snow.

(What? TOO slippery? Maybe I have to fix it.)

Credits

The base is from 'Surnned' by @Atjowt, the animation also refers to this.
The title screen refers to 'To a Starling' by @Peteksi.
The physics of dash, sprites and the map styling refer to 'Celeste' by @noel.
The particle effect refers to 'Slimey, Jump!' by @CarlosPedroso.

Special thanks to @phil and @dw817 for giving tips and finding bugs.

How many mushrooms is 100%? So far I've found 7

Very neat little platformer! Really enjoyed the mechanics, and the levels were fairly well designed. Definitely faster-paced than most celestelikes I've played, but I think it works alright.

I do think the physics felt a bit too slippery though. I repeatedly made a jump but then continued moving into spikes, and the "slide" move is a bit too easy to trigger accidentally. If anything, a "stop" move would have been much more useful lmao

That's really my main complaint though, this is very well done :D

Hoorah! The final version has been released! Good polish, sound, animation, effects but still extremely tough. I can only get 4/8 mushrooms.

I also found the secret area (at the end). Its great when games just throw in a little bit more. I think it shows how much the developer cares about the players.

One minor item: Every mushroom gives 1,000 points but there is no score in this game. Instead when collecting a mushroom you could give a count of how many you've collected so far e.g 1/8

Well done. Great game.

Not easy for me. Kind of like a scrolling version of Celeste.

I really like the music and the tileset

Got 5 mushrooms on my first attempt. On the second:

I had some trouble on the first run because I missed the mushroom next to the hint explaining that you can dash through spikes. Still a good, smooth game.

@phil:

By "secret area" do you mean the area at the top of the map with two mushrooms, or is there a way to jump out of the top right corner of the endgame room?

@Cowirrie

I mean


you can jump out of the end game room

@phil:
Thank you, I couldn't have got there without help, and that was just enough hint to give.


I like how the long flat floor makes it possible to outrun the camera.

It also seems like there's a near-endless roof space, since you can sprint up the left side wall and then move all the way to the right wall before falling back in.

@Catastrophic Cal Have you found a skip/glitch or is it just pixel-perfect running?

P#106435 2022-02-06 15:01

@Knack there might be a secret ;) btw i got a new time edit: i didnt realize there was text on my screen when i posted lol.

Hi @lily.kensa:

Your Tutorial is appearing half-off the screen to the right NOT in Pico-8 version 0.2.4b but the new online version of 0.2.4c.

Try it above.

P#109868 2022-04-07 18:12

Same issue as dw817

@LazerLazer22

Hmm...

I don't yet know what caused it, cuz I've never seen the issue...

What a Celeste ripoff! But it's still a good game.

Just finished the game,
it was so enjoyable.
Thank for your hard work.

P#111029 2022-04-29 08:39

This is the best I can get so far

P#111155 2022-05-01 20:39 ( Edited 2022-05-01 20:40)

New strategy brought me to this. I think I can shave off about two seconds but this will take some time.

P#111423 2022-05-06 21:35 ( Edited 2022-05-06 21:36)

took a while (because i suck) but managed to get Sub 1

P#111443 2022-05-07 12:00

I shaved off more than expected. Again, with some practice next milestone I'm hoping to achieve is about 45 sec. I don't think I'll ever manage to make it past 40 though.

P#111446 2022-05-07 12:27

sub 40 is definitely possible, maybe even lower (sub 35 perhaps)

P#111496 2022-05-08 08:40

@Hexit45 - wow! congrats actually, good job, my best score is 45.8667 - I do understand that there are couple of places which, with some practices will help me to go down to around 43 - sub 40 is still something I can not imagine (your result is incredibly impressive as well)

P#111504 2022-05-08 11:24

@shabunc, Yeah there are actually quite a few rooms that could be optimized, the trick that I followed is to just try to get in alot of dashes and probably try to experiment with a few rooms.

Still though, the time of 45 seconds is still an amazing feat that you have accomplished!

P#111509 2022-05-08 13:53 ( Edited 2022-05-08 13:54)

I have finally reached my breaking point

P#111557 2022-05-09 13:53

nice

P#111560 2022-05-09 14:05

Shaved another second

P#111614 2022-05-10 14:30

@Hexit45 - first of all, congrats! You are pushing the boundaries of what's possible and you are my source of inspiration )

My best so far is 40.5333 and now yep, I see what can be done to come down to say, 38.5.
What you did is still unimaginable to me )

I guess I'll start to record how I'm speedrunning so may be it give a hint what can be improved.
I also found that in some cases one can break through throw ice downwards but I'm not using this techniques since it's a) unreliable b) it feels like it belongs to the out-of-boundaries and in that case why not just break through throw the very first ceiling.

P#111678 2022-05-11 11:36

Aaaaand here comes my first sub-forty!

P#111680 2022-05-11 11:48

Now I do believe in sub'36 but with my mediocre skill it will take enormous amount of effort.
But it's getting more fun.

P#111813 2022-05-14 10:01

I'm quite stubbornly not involving any new trick to my technique but rather trying to hone my precision.

Thanks lily.kensa!
I've loved jamming this. I've bought myself an All-Button-Controller (or ABC) for jamming fighting games on console and have been using this game to re-teach a new layout. I've really loved playing this. I see the Any% runs. But Where do I look for the full mushroom playthroughs? I know I'm not in the running I just wanna see what people are doing. Thanks for making such a fun game to jam to!
