NOTE: I Improved the ending a month after the Jam. The rest of the game is unchanged, but if you really want to play the original 1 week version, you can download the windows builds below.

Made for the I Can't draw but I want to make a game (again) Jam.

Keyboard:

A+D/Arrow Keys - Move left and right

Space - Jump

E - Speed up text

Esc - Open Settings for Sound and Quit to menu button

X - Skip Opening Cutscene

Controller (Going off my Xbox360 controller here):

Right Joystick - Move left and right

A - Jump

X - Skip Text

I love the way the gameplay is presented, slowly, as I like :)

You feel accompanied, it is a good sensation the game produced in me.

This sensation helped me to complete the game.

I think if you just add a more appealing walking animation the game will win a lot

Thanks for the experience

Very good game! I like how the art changes along the game, and the parkour elements! ^-^

Thanks! I figured I'd imbrace the "I can't draw" theme with a game where the programmer is trying to make good art without much success lol (based on a true story)

That's a very nice game, I like how the player animation for walking works for banging your head on the wall and kicking! :D. I like the story! 

Thanks! your game had a really unique style to it, never seen a game that takes Pixel art to that level lol
