Really like the fish and the chill atmosphere. Music is cool as well.
Would have wished for animated vines on the obstacles and
a bit more challenge.
I don't know if it gets more challenging in the end, but after playing for a couple of minutes I felt myself getting a little bit bored.

Great job nevertheless! :)

Thank you @Cuddl3s!
Yes, it does get more challenging!
We know it needs better balancing… Might happen in the future!

The graphics are nice, and trying to avoid flock of fish is original in this type of game. Felt like it was a bit too slow and easy tho. I'm not sure but I think at some point there was some adaptative music if so, nice touch! (and if not, the music is nice nevertheless).

Thank you @TomBuston!
The music is indicating some changes, but it does need more balancing!

Neat little game! The pacing and introduction of mechanics could have been faster. The music was ambitious, though a more atmospheric and mellow soundtrack could have been beneficial.

@dorkulon Thank You! There's a reason for the ominous nature of the music. It's trying to make your experience less relaxing.
The first thing we will fix, after the jam, is the pacing!

For the first 300m I was a bit bored, but then it got more intense, which was cool. And after 600m I quickly died.
Nice entry overall, the music is great. But it's not good that you don't see your score when you die, otherwise I might have added a highscore.

@ratrogue Thank you!
Glad you liked the music!
Pacing will be the first thing we will fix after the jam!
The highscore is a good point, thank you for mentioning! Completely missed that!

Not a bad entry. The graphics were great, and I loved the animation on the main fish. So more animations and sounds would have gone a long way in creating the atmosphere, and I did notice the green fishes (while their collisions with the player character was great) were spawning in the middle of nowhere as I went down. I'd keep their spawner out of view so it appears more natural. The gameplay was fine, but needed more challenge earlier on (or something different to avoid). Also it would have been nice if the light matched the art style a little more, but that's just a nitpick :)

Good job!
