A downloadable game

A cloaked man is stopped by the mafia on the city streets.

He'll need to defend himself, but he has no weapons.

Thankfully, it's raining, so he's carrying his trusty umbrella.

----------------------

Made in 48h for Alakajam 6

---------------------

WAD to move and jump.

Mouse to point the umbrella and click to open it.

Try to figure out how to use all the umbrella's properties:

- Pogo on enemies' heads to deal damage

- Hover

- Deflect bullets

A lovely game with really cool umbrella mechanics!

This game looks so great and the art style is very nice! Unfortunately I couldn't play it on my old Mac :(

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

I think I looked at it once but it's not like I really have any projects that are bigger than a 48h jam game. If you think I should submit stuff like this, I will, tho.

What's it about? Are there reviewers? Who plays the games?

Thanks a lot and sorry you couldn't play! I don't own a mac and with GMS2 I can't export for web :(

There are two categories, one is hobby and one is pro, basically commercial and non-commercial. There are also bonus stages which include a game jam and fan favorite where every week you can vote on 6 games and then there's a winner :) Our team plays the games and give a review and then in the end one game wins one of the categories and a price.

not too sure this guy is legit, this is literally spammed on every single game on the featured page of Itchio. he never provides any links, or information.

Check out some of the discussion posts on the featured page, you're gonna see this guy on every single one ( or nearly every one, maybe some he hasn't gotten to yet ) 

never seen him on a game that costs money though, not sure why that's a thing.

Not the first time I got the comment. I checket the GDWC page the other time I think and it seemed quite harmless. I'm not sure what threat could they pose, but I'll be wary of any personal info I need to give to submit or whatever (if I do). Thanks for caring!

Really nice game, with some great art and an interesting mechanic!

Fun game! The charcters are charming and It has some really fun mechanics to play with. It took me a while to notice the health system, but it's really clever!
