Box looks great.

Better pack that in blue/dry ice so it doesnt melt on the way to all of us!👍

Every game I can, I strongarmed the programmers into putting a snow level. 
 

Hmmm. Has anyone found the hidden snow level in DKJr yet?  I actually don’t think so. The Easter egg hunt is afoot.

But is there a tropic level?


Yes, actually. You will see what I mean.

Here is a video showing a few minutes of game play. This is the final version, not a work in progress.

 

 

This game is about helping your penguin reach different outposts in Antarctica before time runs out.

It is basically a racing game, in which you control the penguin's speed and can also make it jump over obstacles.

Managing speed is critical. Sometimes it pays to go top speed and be a little reckless, but most of the time it will be about setting a good pace.

 

Pick up some fish along the way and you will receive some extra time. During advanced stages that becomes quite important.

Flags give you points, and the purple flag in particular makes your penguin literally take-off for a while

 

This game also supports secret codes that can be entered with the keypad at the title screen.

Codes do different things, and there is one in particular that should make our Canadian friends proud.

 

Anyway, this was a very fun project and I hope those willing to give it a shot will enjoy it!

It seems like Winter 2020 would have been a better release time.  Just keeping with the theme.  Anyway, that penguin is cute!

If only devs could perfectly plan release dates all the time. 😉

You didn't tell me how to access it, but knowing that it was in there, I found it within a few seconds. :P

 

For anybody who hasn't seen it, it's at 5:37 in this video:

I don't know who Jonas Carlsson is, but my name is Anders Carlsson.

 

Did my title music make the final cut? Perhaps then I should be lifted higher into the credits.

Yep, thanks for catching that. You are already credited inside the game itself under music. Since this is a draft, I’m sure @mthompson can synchronize it with the final manual as well. The Jonas/Anders mixup came up a while ago... not sure how that carried through this draft but I’m sure it will get fixed as well.

@mthompson thanks! if we could also list Carlsson together with Nyuundere under the SFX and Music bucket, that would get us fully in synch! Thanks!

IIRC, @Rev referenced me as Jonas once previously. Not sure what that is about.


Sorry about mix up. Maybe I thought you were one of the Jonas Brothers?
