My Irrational Fear of Unicorns [GameJolt Entry]

  • The dialogue is inspired.

  • :) sqiddster Thanks!

  • Officially over the 1,000 plays mark in the Scirra Arcade!

    Also, new version is LIVE!

  • I couldn't make it to the end - but the plot had me hooked until I was overun by unicorns!

    The only minor crit was the swapping between pixelated style and the normal fonts - things like the hud and dialogue especially - something to maintain the pixelly charm of the rest of the graphics. <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Congrats on the feature - look forward to seeing more from you!

  • I love the messed up nature of the game, you pull it off beautifully. I never expected a mario platformer to turn into a survival horror game.

    (also, nice use of the game sprites in the cave of truth ;) )

  • JohnnySix ah, damn, its a short game, that's why It doesn't get boring too quick I guess. I also designed it for mild ADHD patients (joke) because you never do one thing for too long until its boring (except dialogues maybe).

    I didn't use pixel fonts because of limitation though.. any way to get this done without web fonts and sprite fonts? Because they don't work on Scirra Arcade.

    sqiddster thank you, that means a lot to me, coming from you!

  • Rory - I know the pain - I was going to point you to this thread, but you already posted haha.

    If the dialogue isn't too heavy, making small pixel image versions and scaling would keep the look, as none of the text featured is for keeping score etc.

  • JohnnySix you got your reply from Ashley! Haha, and it was good news. Glad for that. I'll make the changes when he does.

    Anyway, game has officially went past the 2,000 players mark, and I'm still waiting for news from GameJolt's competition!

  • Good luck! I should pay more attention to these forums - I didn't know there was one on the go. :D

  • Hey! Really nice and fun game! Will be great if you can add AZERTY keyboard support, or at least let the player use arrows keys!

    Good job, I love the graphics : )

  • Okay, I'll consider that in the final release.

    Thank you wilfryed :)

  • Just wanted to bump to say how successful the game has been on the Arcade and how happy this makes me. The game has almost 7k views and it hasn't even been there for a month.

    The GameJolt competition results are this Friday, and boy did they take a long time. But I just realized something funny and thought I'd mention it.

    Why are the two Top Games on the arcade about Unicorns? KSLR

  • Your game is awesome! I love the humor. I'm a little creeped out about the ending, but journey was a lot of fun.

    One more truth:

    Comic Sans loves you.

  • I'm really glad you enjoyed it jchamplain

    It surprises me how well people get my random humor..

    Comic Sans loves you too ;D
