This is a game I made as an project in school, it is mostley inspired by the xbox arcade game Limbo, the flash game Nervermore 3 and the flash game Coma. I know there still is alot of bugs in the game but the school project is done and i may fix the bugs in the future.

The story in the game may not be as clear as it should have been becuase of the lack of time to the deadline of my project. I hope you could understand a little bit out of it anyway :)

I hope you come to like it. :)

I know there are very much bugs and i don't think i actually going to fix them. I don't really like this game very much because a lot of things. This was just an game for my School project and to improve myself :)

I appreciate all the comments i have get, which could guide me to to something much better in the future :)

Never really got what was goin' on... And the zombies, no idea where they came from... But it was fun hittin' zombies in the balls with a ball

haha :D nice you liked that anyway :D

Ok so.

i really like the game and want to continue playing but i have no idea how to pass the part where u learn how to drag the log. ive tried multiple times to jump from the log to the rope and it wont work....what. am. i. doing. wrong!!!!

jaglitegrann responds:

i guess you cant reach the rope because you drop the rope whit the same button as you jump whit, and if you hold the jump button down when trying to reach it you automatically drop, not sure if that's your problem but it could be :)

Great game!

A couple of annoying glitches i found were:
- The level where you chase the squirrel the game freezes if you press c
- The level before you reach the old man's house at the beginning theres an invisible spike (not sure if it's a glitch but really annoying to remember when you die near the end)
- The level after you reach the old man's house where you learn how to move things, if you push the log to the end, die, and continue to push it when you arrive again, I somehow managed to get it slanted upwards and couldnt continue so I had to exit to menu then retry
- Same level as above, if you go to the other side of the log when it's at the end you can move it a little more to hopefully reach the rope, but sometimes it will glitch here and have the kid floating in the air grabbing nothing and continuing to
move the same way until he hits something
And thats as far as I got so far because I can't seem to reach that damn rope :| Besides that it's a pretty great game but slightly ruined by the glitches it contains :D

jaglitegrann responds:

yeah i noticed the most of the things, but why you cant reach the rope is probably cause the jump button is pressed down when trying to catch the rope, it does so that you fall of directly, because you use the same button to jump as to leave rope. that's probably something i should have think'd about and make that impossible to happen :)
