great game, but i managed to unlock this door before collecting the gems

I've been able to replicate it to

after i do the glitch and try to go through the door, nothing happens and i don't warp to the next level.


So what did you do to activate this glitch? I can’t fix it if I don’t know how to reproduce it!

I just bashed myself into top of the door multiple times, and then It just unlocked.

here's the video:


sry for the lag

Wow, weird... I’ll get on that. Is the game actually lagging or is that just the capture?

its just the capture.

also, i just found another one.

the ground literally just disappeared when i try to cut through something.


just in case its only a problem with my OS, I'm using Debian Linux

Yeah, I've seen that one, no clue what causes it tho. 1/1000 odds perhaps? Thanks for reporting all of this, the video provided above will be very helpful!

I did some digging, and it turns out these two bugs are actually the same thing! I knew the floor could sometimes disappear, but your discovery of the door disappearing gave me a lightbulb moment, and now the bug is fixed. Thank you so much, I woulda never slammed into the door enough to find this!

Hey, thanks for playing! That one elevator level took over a week to make, so I’m glad you enjoyed it!

i dont know that will the creator reply b or even notice this comment but i will advice him , this game is a BOMB , !!! , i advice , u should work in this game , and even public this on android , i m , telling you this game will kill the competition , make another 50 levels , add more mechanics , 36 levels are good but i got addicted from this , if you can , add multiplayer speed run to this , make a lobby of 4 player and make them run through this , PS - the gem mine is awesome , if u read this do reply and tell me have you completed this or are you expanding this

Hey, yes I am still working on it! I haven't got plans for anything multiplayer, but levels and new mechanics are in the works. There should be another update in 1-2 months (development's slow cos I'm kinda busy)

no problem JUSTCAMH , but aree you planning for android because it can have great effect , by the way the multiplayer thing was a suggestion

I agree that a mobile version would be cool! I’ll focus on a pc release for the moment, then we might get an android version later.

np , bro , im just sayin ...this game is a killer .....just dont stop workin ...i have tried unity and i know howmuch effort it takes , just dont stop

(+1)

Seriously, this game was so much fun. When I first saw your game I really wasn't sure if I am gonna like it but it delivered on two fronts. Fun and sillyness while also giving a bit of a challenge and interesting design. You always had to think a little before you do anything. I even made a video If you're curious you can check it out here.

(+1)

I had an enormous amount of fun playing this, thanks JUSTCAMH!

(+1)

Awesome, I'm glad you enjoyed! Looks like I still need to round out some of the learning stuff at the beginning. I'm also working on new mechanics to hopefully get this to a full length game. Thanks for playing!

(+2)

Congrats on making such a unique combination of physics and "wormholes" (like the one our physical money is being printed through into the "free" market)! 

You have vision + talent, thanks for making games like these!

People would pay $$$ for fun & uniquely addictive mechanics on the mobile store, so please consider that! There are millions of copy-paste ideas, and the ones which are truly amazing, like HolePunch, could earn $$$ because they stand out in awesomeness and deliver in fun/second ;)

Cheers to all developers!

(+1)

This is sooooo addictive!

Can you send me the source code?

Hi Ibrahim, the source code will not be going public, sorry bout that.

Not moving

I have killed...so many men...

Oh my gosh, your editing is comedy GOLD. I love it! I've never seen an enemy die by tripping, and that one blind guy early on was so funny (tho I should probably fix those things). One question; it sounded like the music was glitching in the background, was there some audio bugs? 

(+1)

This game is a lot of fun! I really enjoyed the mechanic of cutting or punching a hole through the terrain to complete levels. I also really liked the simplicity of the style. Only things I wish was that there were more levels and a settings menu to adjust volume. 

(+1)

Thanks a heap for the video and for the feedback! The last few days I've been working on these suggestions; the next update will have a settings menu and new levels. More levels coming soon!

(+1)

That's awesome! I'm looking forward to playing the update. :)

(+1)

Very good game! When there are 3 or 4 enemies, it starts lagging a bit, but it didn't take away any of the fun!

(+1)

Thank you so much for the feedback! I've been working on performance, and the next update will run smoothly with up to ten enemies, which is exciting for future levels!

(+1)

Hey!! I really love your game and I am really interseted in the slicing mechanic of your game. I was wondering if you had a github page or something for me to look at for inspiration.

I’m afraid not, the game won’t be going open source. If it’s the slice that you’re interested in, this asset looks decent (tho I haven’t tried it myself) https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/tools/physics/sprite-slicer-12911

Thanks for the help! I really appreciate it!

(+1)

Hey i played your game for my channel!

Yay, I'm glad you enjoyed! Your content is super funny, keep it up!

thank you!

hey it doesnt work on my mac becuase it says its damaged or incomplete do you have a solution for this ?

You could try this solution

If that doesn't work, it may be a security issue (Mac isn't very trusting of non-appstore-apps), you could try this other solution. I promise there's nothing dangerous in the game!

Let me know if either of those work =)

I thought this game was lots of fun so i did a youtube video on it.

Like and subscribe

The video comes out at 1pm GMT!!

Awesome, thanks for playing, glad you enjoyed!

I'm so crappy in modifiying game files but this games is so fricking amazing but so short (sad :( sad) so I wanted to modify things like range and enemies and stuff to spice up the game (and I really hope that there will be people doing mods and custom levels for this game YEAH) and I can have more fun (especially if there's a level editor in-game and that would be so cool YEAH) and I really wanna do that but I don't know how and which software to use and what to do for that and I would really really like to know please thanks a lot and and and aahhhhhhh 

*BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPP*

Hey, I’m glad you enjoyed! I have no experience with modding either so I can’t make any recommendations other than googling it (the game runs in Unity, you’ll want tools for modding unity games). I don’t have any plans to make a level editor, the levels are a bit too complex. But I am certainly working on making more levels and mechanics, stay tuned! 

THANKS AND THANKS AND AMAZING AND THANKS

(+1)

I use unity, I have no expierence in modding, but if you wanted mods the first step would be making it open source (you probally know that though) I love your game though!

(+1)

Maybe this is the best game of game jams that i played

(+2)

Awesome game so far! The cutting mechanic feels great and intuitive. The indications about how far you can dash were very helpful. The music was engaging and fits well. Sounds were good. I didn't get a chance to play this before the snipers were added, but I can already tell they were a nice touch to the game to add variety. I did have one glitch where I ended up in the floor on one level, but it was still totally fun. One small suggestion would be to make the guard's vision cones a different color than the color you light up the area, so you can always clearly see their field of view. The levels were fun and inspired very creative movements. Nice work! Cant wait to see how this game develops and how you tie in a larger story.

(+1)

Thanks for the feedback! Great to hear that you liked it!

(+2)

This is brilliant. 

(+1)

Thank you, I’ll be sure to keep working on it!

(+1)

WOW this is amazing! One of the best Jam games I've played in a while :O

(+1)

Wow that was really awesome! I made it to "This place is practically made out of gems". How did you guys make this cutting effect? Is it just a mesh?

Hey, thanks for playing! The mesh is rendered using Unity’s Sprite Shape, and then the cutting mechanic manipulates the points, adding some and removing others to clear out the hole.

(+1)

Fun game, a good amount of destruction, really liked it. More punching missions please. :) 

(+1)

Thanks a heap for playing! The guards aren’t meant to be easy, so as to force you to play around with the environment a bit =)

It was a good challenge, and motivating, I continued playing after recording & took all the guards down in a run. :)
