Description
Dear nerds,
I want to present you my new game I've been working on since last year, called "Pogostuck: Rage With Your Friends".

It's a one level game about climbing a surreal mountain on a pogo stick. Controls are deceptively simple, just rotate the character and jump, yet they take a ton of time to master - "prolonging" the playtime to a couple of hours.

If you've seen or played Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy you know what it's up to or inspired by.

The game features automatic matchmaking for multiplayer halfway around the globe, no PvP collisions, just racing against each other or casually jumping along. Unlock hats and other equip to differentiate your character from others.

Check it out on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/688130/Pogostuck_Rage_With_Your_Friends/
The trailer is subject to change still, had to make it prematurely to put up the store page.


Had to rewrite the level format a bunch of times, in particular as I planned to ship with a level editor at first (which would have been based on custom imported meshes though, only a few example models included). The 2D collision detection on 3D models was rather tricky to implement and took many months to make it smooth and rather bug free. I wrote a custom c_move at one point but gave up when I had to do rotations - although c_rotate can be quite buggy it's still hard to redo that yourself.
The game is mostly done, currently finishing up sounds and localization. I should be done in February, then ship the game shortly after.
Thanks for taking a look!

Is the game too hard? Or is it because I'm playing with the keyboard? i want a trainer.exe right now! grin

Joke aside, You did really good job. It also feel good to see a successful game made with acknex in the market.

Edit: Btw there is a slider for "music volume" in options menu, but i can't here any music during play game.

Haha, yes, it's a very difficult game. Most people struggle a lot the first hour or more, and only after they get used to the controls they start to enjoy the game.
For a long time the quickest first run any player did was 11h. shocked I intended the game to be 5-12h long.
Oh, and yes, many people including me find the game to be much easier with a gamepad than with keyboard. I suggest using the latter as well. However, some people prefer playing with keyboard, including the world's best Pogostuck player shlomdog who completed the game in 3:56m.

There is music in the game but it only plays when you lose some progress. You will probably hear it once you fall down from ~18% and onward. It would probably be super annoying to have music play constantly in this game for hours (there's only so much music I can ship with the game as well). Instead I chose to play it on occasion (that is when you fall down) and focus on local(ized) ambient sounds instead.

Thank you for giving it a try!
