Ludum Dare 42: Treasure Chest #83

What’s a “Treasure Chest” article?

It’s a short text and video compilation of three to five small jam games we really liked for some reason (like core concept, artwork, effort etc.).

“Get Comfortable” by mcccclean.

One of the most beautiful aspects of an intimate relationship is waking up and falling asleep next to each other. Every now and then one seeks subconsciously for the body warmth of the partner and lets the own hands and feet wander to them, just to feel even more comfy. This wonderfully simple game revolves around this aspect, making your own body parts grow grotesquely just so you can feel closer to your better half. Cuteness overload!

The main character of this platformer looks like a bird, but he is not one, which is the reason why he can not fly. Nevertheless, all his acquaintances want to get him to, even if they have to use very questionable methods. Jump around and guess the trajectories of the items so the poor Birdbird will not be harmed by their well-meant attempts. A great game with a high smile factor.

In this puzzle platformer, each of your moves makes one of the four walls move toward you. That’s why you have to find the fastest and most optimal way to the portal in each level, so you don’t get crushed and can get to the next one. Furthermore, the excellent level design and the internal speedrun challenge provide a high incentive to constantly improve.
