A platformer about a girl with a magic umbrella.

This game was made for Weekly Game Jam 204. The theme this time is "Downhill". I took this literally, and made the story revolves around a girl heading downhill.

Inspirations

I ended up listening to a lot of YeYe's songs this past week, and this one stood out to me. The game's story is inspired by this MV. I also played through Celeste this last week, and got really hooked on its platforming mechanics.

Mechanics

The game's mechanic revolves around an umbrella. You jump higher and fall faster without it, and it could serve as a platform for you to ride. The umbrella also gets pushed down if you jump while on it, meaning it can be a versatile tool in vertical levels.

The art was made in Aseprite, and music created via Jump Box. The two songs I made are:

  1. Phi
  2. Tau

This was an absolute joy to play! I only hope I can get good enough to accomplish something half as good in a week. 

Thank you for the kind words. As for the second point, i believe you'll get there eventually!

Really nice game! I like the art style and the gameplay mechanic, also the music was good for something that you made yourself for a one week jam. I took me a little while to get used to the controls, but I really enjoyed the journey!

All watermelons wow. Thanks a lot for giving the game a try. It means a lot to me that you appreciate the music, since making the game's music was my goal for the jam.

The art and visual style is great. It took some practice with the umbrella to get anywhere but after the initial frustration it was fun!

Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed your time.

I really liked the art, and the game mechanics have a lot of potential, this could be turned into a whole platformer game :)

Yeah, I was super hyped when I discovered this mechanic. I was thinking the umbrella can also be used to push buttons or destroy cracked walls, or even shield you from projectiles.
