Hello Newgrounds :)

Nobody Home presents a 32 level, skill based puzzle platformer. We're really proud of what we've created and put a lot of effort into every aspect of the game. Wanting to create a platformer for a very long time, we set out on it. It started as a really small idea and just kept growing.

Nobody Home didn't exist before this project and most of the initial ideas for this game were drawn on a piece of paper at college one day. Fraser mocked up a menu screen and the snowball started. After getting some really basic test levels done, we showed our good friend Dan, who offered to do some loops for the game (which turned out amazing). Dan - being the avid gamer he is - picked apart so much of the game that most of the time spent was improving what we started out with.

Somewhere along the line of creating this, we got talking about other game ideas and finally realised that if we were going to release multiple games, we should have a name for ourselves. Nobody Home was created, along with a splash intro animation. As a final touch to the game, we found Tom S - a great voice actor - who recorded the intro voice "Jumping Jim!".

We really hope you enjoy Jumping Jim, we realise it's hard and frustrating, but keep at it, it's worth it :)

the pink one on the cave does t work

I liked it. Although the main screen does not hint at the "minimalist" play style, the ending is also a nice surprise.

PS. "Dan's Time" does not take restarts in account. Just go as fast as possible to the next level and so on.

I actually thought this was a good game, even I didn't really understand it. It was kind of weird to see a superhero who just jumped instead of flew. Then again, the original version of Superman did that. Did you know that, BTW? Anyway, it was rather cool to see how nutty this guy looked as he just jumped everywhere. I could have sworn that you could double jump, but it was just looked like he could.

The hardest one is the level where there are those pink things and a platform. You don't know which one to use first or if you can even make either one at the right time. I had no idea so many people took part in this! It's not that part of a game, so it's neat how everyone had a different role. It's nice for a quick play.

Seems like Dan isn't very good at his own game XD! Played it for the first time and got it already, awesome(it's 1 of the 2 secrets, you have to beat the game°1 and °2 in less then 8 mins)
Really funny, the ending picture is hilarious! And medal bug: some people have problems with the medal 'Nobody Home', i have achieved it but i can get 'Liftoff' bounce of a pink bouncing block :((
That's the only bad thing about the game

I really liked the game! Simple yet beautiful, the music was really amazing and calming. The only thing that bugs me is that I have got locked up in a room a lot of times, but I still do not have the medal, do I need to do something else before getting it? Anyway, 5 stars!

NobodyHome responds:

It appears the medals are bugged. We're not sure why as they worked fine upon release. We'll take a look :)
