Game: “Monica”

Released On: February 14, 2011

Development Time: About 15 hours (started work on the afternoon of Feb. 13th and stayed up all night to finish it)

Genre: Platform

Info: A casual gravity-flipping platformer – the goal is to paint all the blocks in each level by stepping on them. Doesn’t sound too hard, right? But when you add in spikes, trampolines, and disappearing blocks it becomes quite a challenge. Play as an imaginary friend invented by a little girl on a quest to color everything pink. Features 20 levels and an unlockable bonus mode. Sequel to “How”. Made for the Game Jolt “Invention” Contest.
