Fox Flares

Author Comments

You are a fox that is spontaneously combusting. Try to find some water to alleviate the pains of this life. A platformer with some timing elements.

Arrows Keys to move. WASD and xbox controllers may work as well. R to restart at last checkpoint.
Go into the water pit to put out your fire. The timer will stop as well.

This is a post compo build that alleviates some of the pain points in the jam build, but I would still consider this a prototype. Thanks for playing!
3/15/18: Actually found a platforming bug that should make the game feel a lot better.
11/29/18: Small optimization

Fun and difficult

I hate the second to last puzzle, and there was a huge difficulty spike. The only other problem that I have is that this game is so short. Other than that, it's a pretty good game.

seems fun if the controls wern't hyper sensitive or that the fox seems to slide about a bit. it's horrible to play when you have to be precise.

Short, easy and pretty generic. I don't see any connection to LD40 theme "The more you have it, the worse it is". Maybe if fox had to ignite consciously to bypass some obstacle it would make more sense and would add more depth to gameplay.

Interesting idea, love the animations, need to be longer.
