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 :)

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.
