Whoooa. I really liked this picturebook feel. It's refreshing to see something that deviated from the traditional gamey setup in this jam. The overall atomosphere is good too. Well done!

Really love the art style and the world, the premise is quite cool. I love the way it plays like a picture book.

Would love for there to be more story, and for more to be done with it.

This game felt really unique which was cool, has a nice storybook feel, especially with the choppy movement. I'm genuinely kind of ashamed to admit that I got stuck for a little bit lol. I think the game could have improved by being longer, or by having more detailed background art.

I've never seen a game deployed like this before. Pretty cool.

As others have already pointed out, this game had a really superb art style! Pretty much everything visually worked really well together in a very unique style. I managed to "beat" the game at the end, and the solution was interesitng : )

Maybe an indicator for which objects are interactable would have been useful. Other than that, great job!

Awesome graphics. I hope you'll team up with some people to make a more fleshed out game with this style sometime. The atmosphere/feeling was cool, but it wasn't realised too well because I had to zoom from place A to B all the time. The distances were a bit too long, maybe something interactive in the middle would have been nice to keep the player interested.
Cool way to make a game and well done! :D

Such a pretty art style and cool utilization of character design! Definitely could see this taken further when embracing that artstyle and the stop-motion-picture-book movement feel. :)
I'm such a story person so would have loved to have seen more story elements populate the level, but of course time is always a challenge in these jams.

The art style really gives this a unique storybook feel.

To contribute more to that feel, a less bland font (or even just the browser's serif instead of sans-serif) and less jarring colour (although I appreciate the need for contrast) would have helped.

If you're going for this storybook style, I think there should be more text: more story and exposition, and less of a "video game-like" feel, such as a proper epilogue instead of just "You win!".

@thomastc, absolutely, the "You win!" was added during the last half-hour of the jam, when I was scrambling to fix bugs and make the game playable. The day before, I had many grand ideas with all sorts of features and a more elaborate story. But you know how jams work. However, I appreciate your advice about the font — I usually don't give it that much thought.

Okay, that's pretty athmospheric game.
General idea is good, but maybe it's need to add more gameplay and some puzzles, along with more polished graphics
But anyway, nice try! :)

The art style is nice but the game portion of the game lacks a bit. It would definitely be better if there was something more to do, or at least some accompanying text to tell the story.
