Made for the Ludum Dare 41: Combine 2 incompatible genre
( /!\ this is the original jam submission)

You play a little worm in this fishing / horror adventure game.
Your quest as a worm is to gather all the gems and avoid all the fish while going deeper in the level, will you make it?

Left-click on the mouse to play the game.
It is best played in fullscreen and with earphones.

Sounds FX from opengameart.org

i really enjoyed this game, i was terrified when i got to the deeper section and couldnt see around me to the point i was just clicking frantically. id love to see a game where something deeper was happening, something with more story. only thing i didnt like was the lack of any secrets tbh, couldve hid a skeleton in a corner or something. but good game over all!

Thanks for the comment soporboi that is nice of you. Agree on more secrets should have been implemented. As it is a game jam submission, it was of course not the first thing to come in mind unfortunately. But always nice to hear some ideas.
Thanks again.

Loved this game, didn't find any secrets though sadly which I was hoping for, but I really enjoyed this game! I would genuinely play this again. Got plenty of good scares too, amazing job! Those terrifying charging brown skull face fish... Oh god...

Sorry to have made you swear so often. Also thank you for the score, you are being too nice, it's not that good. But thank you anyway.

I like the concept and the adventure (and the creepy fish. That is a very nice touch). This is especially good for a Ludum Dare game made in such a short time. I look forward to future work from you.

However, I find fault with the fact that you can easily run into a fish by exploring because the screen doesn't show the player enough to allow them to see the fish and not accidentally run into them. Had the map showed nearby fish, it would have helped.

It kind of stunk that there wasn't a special ending from having collected all the gems. It just felt useless to have gone after them to have it not affect the ending.

Good luck on your future projects.

punknower responds:

Thank you very much for your feedback.
Your ideas are good and would make the game better. We tried to polish it as much as we can, especially making it bug free, adding a mini map, fishes variety, atmosphere and sound effects and we falled short on the timeline unfortunately to polish all that.

We could have put different endings (when all fishes are catched, when all gems are gathered) but we had time to put only one when you reach the bottom of the level.
We will let this game at this state for the LD, but we never know if that catches some attention, maybe remake it in a real little game and fix everything up, why not :)
Thank you again.
