Gently Down The Marsh

itch.io

Joi, Torfi and I got together and made a game in a cozy winter evening of January 2019.

 
 



Welcome! This is a game three friends made together during an 8-hour mini-jam.

It is the story of four companions in a canoe, each with their own oar, two to a side. Well, they can switch sides by double tapping their key but they must coordinate and work together to navigate through the twisting bends, the rushing rapids and the hazardous debris.

The goal? The goal is to reach the end! We don't know what's on the other side, but we keep hearing the grass is greener there. I guess there's only one way to find out!

All together:

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the marsh. Quietly, carefully, slowly, gently, failure can be harsh.
