-Controller- recommended

Left stick to Move

Right stick to Aim

Left Trigger to Jump

Right Trigger to Shoot

-Keyboard and Mouse-

WASD to move.

Mouse to aim.

Left-click to shoot.

DED GUY is an experiment for a different kind of movement.

While playing you must use your gun's recoil to propel yourself forward.

So to gain height, shoot underneath you.

Landing on the ground, and bouncing off walls is the only way to reload your gun.

Have fun with this one.

I literally can't start the game on mouse and keyboard. I don't know if it's my computer or some other factor. I've clicked everywhere, I've pressed every key in my keyboard... I honestly don't know what to do.

The only solution I can think of causing that is if you have a controller plugged in.

If not sorry about that.

It's not bad.Wish i could lock-in the mouse in the game so it doesn't stray away though.

Made it in 10 minutes and still surprised at myself. Looked like extremely hard in the beginning, especially due to this para-rocket-jumping mechanic.

Had to struggle a bit with controls, where one has to pay attention both to the character and position of the cursor, which many times went beyond screen. I wonder how the game could change if the camera was pinned on the character to simplify aiming (like good old racing maps in Teewords). Maybe full screen mode would also benefit to aiming system.

Really nice game overall!

way too hard
but good
Edit: i beat the game

I would have liked a save feature and the ability to redirect movement after propelling. this game has a great style and is fun otherwise!
