Me ol' pal Joe went missing a few days ago while spelunkin' near the Dovigian Archipelago, can ye find him? I will pay handsomely! That be dead men walkin' about there, so be wary!"

Haul Away Joe was made in 48 hours for Global Game Jam 2021. 3D effects were made using stack3d by @dev_dwarf.

this is pretty cool, are you guys planning to make it bigger?

cool b3ans

It felt a bit punishing at the beginning, but this is a really neat game!

Things I really liked:

  • 3D effects
  • atmosphere (music + art meshed well)
  • ability to travel from island to island freely!
  • design of the boss skelly

Bugs + things to potentially change:

  • boat controls were difficult
  • having little health was frustrating
  • some collisions didn't seem to be set up? (both between ship/environment  as well as player/environment)

Thanks for sharing! :)

Wonderful little game!

My feedback:

It would of been nice to have some health regen, or more health.

The boat tended to get stuck on things; some of the gaps between islands were too small.

Thank you so much for using my system in such an amazing way!
