Lovely pixelart and good gameplay. Great work in the jam. It would be great to see a bigger adventure, maybe with different recipes. :)

I enjoyed the video! Thanks for playing through our game. :)

Glad you liked it. :)

i can't open it on my mac

supertommi, can you re-download and try the mac app again? I’m not sure what happened to the build but I was seeing a broken app too. I rebuilt the mac app so it should be good now.

Ok I think something is going on with the upload itself doing something to the extended attributes of the .app file. When you download the file can you run xattr -cr /path/to/application.app against the .app file. I found this posted on https://itch.io/t/506614/is-damaged-and-cannot-be-opened-error-on-macos for reference. From the man page for xattr this is what’s going on

In the fifth form, with the -c option (``clear’’), causes all attributes (including their associated values), to be removed. -r If a file argument is a directory, act as if the entire contents of the directory recursively were also specified (so that every file in the direc-tory tree is acted upon).

So it’s going to clear the extended attributes of the .app file.

I really enjoyed the game good job👍

Also, I made a GREEK video on my YouTube channel about this game.

I'm leaving a comment because I played this game for a while and I liked it and I don't see an upvote or like button.

Thanks for playing! I’m glad you liked it. 

how do I switch with the knife

You don’t need to press a button. Just jump onto a wall.

I played the website version and still got all collectibles. The last tomatos overlap with the ingredients, since they are too spaced out :'). I also tried to climb the first brown wall (the one just before the knife) and with two abilities, I managed to get the third early... I'm not sure if its a website only bug, since I believe the downloadable version is more polished. I like to give some feedback about the things I notice, but I gotta say I really enjoyed playing the game! The pan was an interesting mechanic too. Thank you for letting me play!

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately the tomato spacing is a known issue with certain resolutions (such as the non-fullscreen web version) which we may fix after the jam ends. 

As far as getting the third ability early, that was totally intentional! Congrats on finding that! Going that route should have made the Swamp easier too since you could break through the rocks and take shortcuts.

Ótimo Game, muito divertido, eu coloquei ele no meu canal, da um pulo lá!

Eu não falo português, então usei o Google Translate para este comentário. Estou feliz que você gostou do nosso jogo. Eu gostei de assistir seu vídeo. Obrigado por jogar!

Movement is slow and clunky. Didn't know where to go. When finally getting frying pan, it returns in real time where you left it. Not a great start. Will try offline version.

Definitely better offline. The jump is still a little sticky but it's a huge improvement. I realised there's only 1 way to go.

I wish the powerups were explained in-game though. I got a frying pan, a knife and a tenderizer and still can't attack or defend myself.

Is there any way to drop off a wall grab without jumping?

I got 4 ingredients, 3 items and 9 health. I think that's complete.

You found all the collectibles!

Hiii, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it with you :D, hopefully it is useful to you :)

-The idea for the game is pretty good.

-The visual style of the game is pretty good and it is really enjoyable :)

-The gameplay mechanics are really well thought and the way the level design is related with the items you can find around the level is awesome.

Hopefully this is useful to you :D, also if you could subscribe that would help me a lot :)

Regards
