Revive is a pixelated puzzle platformer in which you defy death, define life, and jump in puddles of syrup.

It is also a spiritual successor (in more ways than one) to a game of mine called Respawn.

Man, this project started small and snowballed into something more complex and personal over time. Four months of care were put into Revive's design, so without giving too much away, I hope you enjoy the ride.


Also, let me know if you find any glitches anywhere, and I will address them when I can!

[List of Fixes]
The Time Trial Run medal point value has been increased, slight changes have been made to the controls (such as pressing UP to jump), the collision detection on forks has been improved, and a couple of problems with the main menu are now gone.

I've heard the controls stick for some people. Not sure what would cause this, so if anyone can provide more details about this (like when it happens, what browser you're using, etc.), let me know.

A video walkthrough is now available: hMHp-E



Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is a beautifully made game in every way. I tend to shy away from puzzle games, because many of them feel like exercises in unrewarded labor. Not so with Revive. While the controls, physics, and music of the game world are excellent, it's the story and how it's presented that kept me happily captivated. Somehow you managed to make the pre-GOV madness series just long and challenging enough not to be boring or exhausting. And then you surprised me with the unexpected un-ending. Not only did this enhance the storyline, but you made me feel as though I were actually 2-C himself -- like a rat in a maze that's begun to crumble.

TL;DR: I like games, films, and books that surprise me with clever plot twists while simultaneously and intentionally leading me to participate in the experience in a more emotional way. Accomplishing this successfully is not easy, but you've managed to do so brilliantly.

Original and fun game, i'm gonna play it till the end now.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

The death-and-spirit system had most certainly delivered a fresh take on an otherwise slightly-tired genre, and [REVIVE] seems to utilize the ability of the player to take advantage of their tangible living/free-flying dead forms effectively, with some pretty intricate level design, nice music, and an interesting story, to boot. I highly recommend this series of puzzles to you.
