Hello!
Welcome to my game "Why Is It So Hard to Get Up?"
To be honest I had way bigger plans for this but it ended
up really bad since I had problems with the engine
crashing and I couldn't get help quickly on the forum,
I had to redo everything in the last day and I'm tired,
I have to sleep, hopefully you can enjoy the music at least!

Lyrics of the Song "Why is it so hard to get up?"
Composed, written and performed by Grony
All I see is my dreams away from me
Why could it be?
What could it mean?
Am I maybe not meant for this?
Am I just lying while I believe?
I just don't understand
How it gets tougher everyday
How it gets harder everytime
You're not here to stay
Or am I just weak?
Am I the wrong me?
Since I don't know how to behave
When you're near to my soul
'Cause I don't know where I am
I feel so lost
Is this even my world?

About Me
I'm a 17 yo aspiring student from 🦝 who really enjoys art, is awful at math and loves to get into ambitious projects! I try to improve my English skills 'cause I truly believe the most polished, best content, instructions, etc... is written in it, I love to play guitar, I'm a fingerstyle self-taught solo guitarrist and I always try to do/give my best on everything! I'm Christian, and I to be honest I don't play videogames if it's not to learn from them, I love to make stuff that people can enjoy, see, hear, experience! and I love getting feedback to grow! Thanks for reading, may God bless you and I hope you have a nice day!

Really nice, I liked the tone and atmosphere of it! Definitely needs a checkpoint system. Cool music, you've got heart for sure!

I truly appreciate your feedback, Mercurio! That enjoying the music means a lot to me!
I'll do my best to improve and keep in mind checkpoints for the future, the game is super hard for sure

I don't why but this game put a smile on my face unconsciously while playing, haha great job man.

I'm so happy it did, I put a lot of effort to make this heartwarming and enjoyable, thank you so much!

I beat it and I just saw a black screen. Feelsbadman.

Oh, no! That should not happen, the end should be a cutscene, I won't make spoilers but I'll work on that, thanks for checking my game though!

No problem. It was actually fun and I enjoyed the water reflections a lot. I do think the game was unnecessarily challenging at times like getting hit by bullets from enemies off the screen. Also sometimes a bullet would get "lost" and then when a new enemy would target you it would turn into a heat seeking missile. Also I was trying to figure out how you set up the velocity of the bullets. I wrote a macro to spam jump and V and found that occasionally the speed of the projectiles would increase if you spammed too rapidly. Not sure how those two would be tied together, and it wasn't consistent, but figured I'd mention it

I'll try to extend the game after the jam is over, I wasn't expecting to receive this much of positive feedback, thank you ollie!
I'll look into it and do my best to improve the gameplay, it surely is a hard game.
Your comment made me laugh tho, I know bouncing bullets all around might seem weird 😂 but I truly didn't have time to add more enemies or even introduce to the story why that happens, I'll drop an easier update with smoother physics after the jam is done! Appreciate the comment

The game's theme sounds bittersweet, but I would like it if when you get hit you restart that part of the level, and not get sent back to the start.
The game you made is excellent for one day!

Thanks for the feedback, MashyZ! I appreciate it a lot, did my best with the music!

AWw, man, that's not hard to do at all! I wish I could drop the update for that but it would get me out of the jam, I'll fix it when it ends!
