I took so long in the battle royale part that I ran out of dialogue. Then I missed a ring in the computer and had to go back through it a bit to get it and that seemed kinda tedious so I stopped there. I think the charge jump is a fun idea that's not so fun in practice. The gameplay at that point is 50% waiting for it to charge and 50% waiting for the frog to sail through the air to his destination. I liked the game overall though. The look of it is cool and the writing made me laugh. The game could rely on those aspects alone and I don't think the gameplay needs to be as big of an obstacle as it is.

Finished the ending ramble with the 30 minute monologue. Still love it, I just have to ask, what game were you talking about with the "fuck you design"? "something something shoots ladders" is what I remember.

Oh damn, I have been playing frog wednesday 2 for 6 hours. I should get going and play some frog wednesday 1.

I don't know. That whole ramble sequence is a blur to me - and on top of that, I recorded it a couple of months before release. I have no clue what games I was talking about other than "baby game" which was Death Stranding lmfao

OH - I FOUND THE PART IN THE DIALOG - I was literally talking about Chutes and Ladders.

This is beautiful. From gameplay to the plot, narration, graphics. I really hope there is more to this.

This is absolute gold.

FROG EGGS!

... It was supposed to crash at the end... right?

It was! Thanks for playing :D

By the way, here's some constructive feedback from a fellow dev:

I think you can make a few adjustments to make the experience smoother, without taking away from the difficulty or intentional "unfinished" feel.

  • Audio
    • The Super Jump "charge up" sound gets pretty grating over time, and can distract from the dialogue. You might be able to fix that by just bringing down the maximum pitch.
    • The "step" clicking sound is important feedback for platforming, but can get really annoying when played rapidly on slopes, low ceilings, & corners.
      I see two possible solutions for this:
      • 1: Attenuate the sound over time when played rapidly in succession, and reset the attenuation after an interval.
      • 2: Set a minimum interval the sound can be played. This would at least make it sound less like your computer is crashing.
  • Super Jump
    • The Super Jump guide-line doesn't seem to be accurate - at least to me as a user. I'd suggest double checking it. Could it be related to frame rate?
      • If it IS accurate, then it might be a usability issue. Maybe you could try leaving the line there during the jump? This might let players see what's happening during the jump, and adjust accordingly. 
    • Without the mid-air sprint, it's very difficult to make adjustments mid-air. I found myself missing a lot of big jumps by just a meter or so. Maybe you could nudge-up the areal directional influence when using the Super Jump?
    • IMO, it takes too long to charge enough jump power to make short jumps - but I'm guessing that that might be intentional.

Really fun, but too short. And it rapidly changes the core gameplay, which I'm not into it at all. I liked the normal jumps more, as the charge jump makes everything really easy. Also, talking about easy, I was expecting it to be harder, but it's pretty simple. Other than that, great game.
