i just tried downloading both this and your secret game... neither of them seem to work, is there a problem with windows computers? or???
Have you ever wondered what would have happened if Shigeru Miyamoto had never existed?
Did you ever ask yourself why there aren't more platformers behaving like an old school RPG?
Get ready to discover what, and why...
...Year is 2021.
In this new TV reality show, candidates try to win money in a platformer cosplay. Will they earn the big prize? Or will they fail or give up?
Game made for 1 Bit Clicker Jam
If you want to play the game again and didn't have enough, play the secret sequel

It's a very charming game. I love funny lines.
Yay, game finished with both character at the same time :D, with "max" stats everywhere (125/115/115/115)
The game is strangely appealing, i didn't expect to play it for so long and be interested in it. It was fun as long as there was progression, but when you get to 90 and pass every check except for epic fails, its a bit frustrating. You could have the best character in the world with 300 in every stat, but after 20 checks there would only be a 35% chance he was still alive.The 5% epic fail are too penalizing, i think it would be better if the check was (not passed and inside of 5 points of the worst roll that could be achieved). If i pass a roll but still fail epicly, it feels cheaty.
This is a valid point and the reason there are only 20 checks. If you think about it, is 1/3 such bad odds 😉?
Frustration is part of the experience! Do not worry though, I won't include such an unfair mechanic in future games, at least not with those consequences
Pretty fun game. I managed to make it to the end. I love the art style and how you tied it in with the Game page
I fortunately wasn't born in this era but I just don't get why people like stuff like Dungeons and Dragons.
Playing the game and performing or failing actions based on dice rolls?
I want to beat a game by my skills not on mere luck from a pseudo random number generator.
I see tha you remade platformer as an old school rpg and I like the idea behind it.
But I can't understand why these rpgs could have ever been popular :-D
Well you got the point :)
It has been popular because it was an easy way to increase what a player can do when you are limited technically. Even now, you can't always have a player skill based action for everything. How do you know if you succeed in a surgery? If your character is able to lift a rock or a boulder ?
As for D&D, people like it because you are only limited by the collective imagination. A game is a different media, you can't really compare.
Even on starcraft, you can hardly find more skill in a game, units have a chance to dodge hits when shot from lower ground :) League of legends also has random elements.
By enforcing skill based action only, what a player can do is limited by the work of the developpers. RPG fun does not come from rolling a dice to perform an action but to be able to choose what action to perform at what time.
Cool game, neat concept and awesome minimalistic graphics. Too bad it doesn't run when on another window. I like how the candidates stay on the level the whole time. Good job!
I think it's a very good concept, but didn't personally understand most of it. Could have been just me, but something about the UI needs to be clearer. :)
I like this game. Though it's more an incremental than it is a clicker. I'd prefer if it was more fast paced though, maybe clicking just to speed it up, lol.
Hey there! I played this on my channel, it was a pretty fun little game, very random!
:) always use extra candidate when you can !
- you randomly roll the dice 1-100
- difficulty starts low (-50) and goes up
- if you roll lower than skill - difficulty you win! (exemple: difficulty 20, your skill is 50, you must roll 30 or less)
Really Good Game ! I love the scenario . I love it !
Really fun clicker. I love the "What if" scenario of traditional platformer never coming into existence.
how does the difficulty and dice rolls decide if u succeed or not? i know that the higher your skill is, the better you are, but i don't know where the dice and difficulty fit in
You roll the dice:
- if dice roll < (skill - difficulty) success
- if dice roll =< 5 super success
- if dice roll > 95 epic fail !
The better the stat, the better the odds ! but difficulty is not the same everywhere :)
the end (and the way we restart) is interesting...
I used to have a brilliant amber monitor. 11" if I remember. used for wordperfect...
I love the look - brilliant choice of colors
