Fox Flares

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.

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.

Cute and challenging.
There are some similarities with ICS, but I think it's fine.

"Actually, it's Firedash, I'm a Pyro Fox from the Forest Planet."
This is the first thing popped in my mind when I played this game.

Not huge platformer fan, so it's kinda difficult for me.
