White Rabbit

Hack the world and solve puzzles.

My first ever game-jam game, made for the 19th Alakajam.
Didn't manage my time well, so there's no main menu or sounds.
Also if the colours look off it's because I'm red-green colorblind.

CONTROLS:

  • WASD for movement.
  • Space to jump.
  • Click to hack.
  • You play as the white rabbit, who can hack the world. Each level is a puzzle which you complete by hacking a certain element of the game.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Slamming into an enemy kills them.
  • You can hack elements of the level by using a hovering telephone sprite (which I meant to redo before uploading)
  • These aren't really instructions but ok

RANDOM NOTES:

  • You can press 's' while mid air to slam onto an enemy to kill them.
  • I didn't manage my time very well as this was my first jam, so the game has no title screen or music.

The art is nice, and overall a good entry for a first jam game! :-) I didn't quite get at first that you have to click on other items to "hack" them, a small tutorial in the first level would be helpful. The later levels don't fully explore the potential of this nice gameplay idea unfortunately, so that's where I see the biggest potential for a post-jam version.

@ratrogue I had making a tutorial level and creating better levels at the back of my to-do list, and didn't end up getting them done. I had to write a level editor as well during the jam, which only made everything slower. Thanks for the feedback :)

White rabbits and hacking… is this a Matrix reference?

I spent far too long at the start wondering what to do. Came back and read the controls, still no idea… I didn't see that I had to read the "Random Notes" too because that's where it says to press S to kill stuff!

I liked your hacking mechanic. The way it's used here feels like the first few tutorial levels showing you how it works. I was ready for more! I could see it creating some interesting and unique puzzles if fleshed out a bit.

Your pixel art is good. The rabbits are cute and it all holds together and feels consistent.

You say there's no sounds but my rabbit makes a little noise when he jumps. Maybe he hacked it in :)

Haha, thanks for closing the game for me. The platforming felt pretty nice. The art and color palette are really nice to look at. The hacking is fairly unintuitive, but I've seen worse mechanics. I did get it after I checked that there's a "hacking" button :D
If you have a bit more time next jam, add some background sprites that explain the mechanics. Like in the first level there could be a box that shows you have to press S on top of the enemy. Anyway, nice entry. Too bad it was so short!

Loved the rabbits!
The hacking feature was a bit lost to me on the first playthrough(now that I read the comment I understand that I had to press S in front of the first enemy) so I had to resort to pure luck but after that it was very smooth.

Good job overall :)
