My entry for #stopwaitingforgodot jam! Run as far as you can, Triangle!

Question: The mac build doesn't work for me?

Sorry, the mac build is unsigned! I'll try to fix it at some point in the future, but in the meantime you can work around it by running xattr -d com.apple.quarantine "Triangle Run.app" from a terminal. (it should also run fine directly from the itch app.)

This is the game that sold me on Godot as a decent game engine ^^

Difficult arcade game.

Very nice game it has a nice challenge to it. 

So awesome Terry! Would love to provide art for one of your games one day.

It's hard but fun.

music make you lose control

perfection!

Ok this game is tough. With the random generating levels/stages and timing of jumps, yikes!

anybody else lose to jumping with the beat?

Really fun! I can pretty consistently get >10k in every run. Unfortunately I think that there are some situations where there is no deterministic solution. This happens when there are certain combinations of spinning platforms -- especially with the big square -- and there's just no way to run up to the square when it happens to be turned without a near diagonal. It's a bit frustrating when that happens.

After playing for a while, my only complaint is that I noticed I am wincing when reaching a checkpoint because of the flashing light. Keeping my eyes open is physically painful, and it feels better to keep my eyes closed while going through checkpoints to avoid seeing the strobe.

Its very nice it and kinda looks  like a old game

Excellent game! So what are your thoughts on Godot, now that the jam is complete? Will you be using it for future projects?

Nice game I like it. And the music. BUT I found a way to have an infinite score...
edit --> I just found that somebody already say that in the comment...
edit 2 --> I got 17133! I will try to make it again while recording...

Feels a bit incomplete without extra lives and a high score screen.

yeah, agreed - planning to add those to a post jam version!

I love the crunchy sound effects and the variety of obstacles. Easy enough to pick up and it's challenging enough that I actually wanted to try over and over to get a better score.

This was a really fun and challenging game. Keep up the good work! 

Sweet little game. I love the artstyle!

Hard as nails!

The jump being a fixed distance is a deliberate decision right? I've ended up over-jumping and falling to my death quite a lot.

Yep! Yeah it's supposed to be constant, it's better that way I think.

Great game! It's quite addicting. My best score so far is 9041.

Edit: 10849!!

Also should mention, you might want to put the controls in there just to be clear.

Edit 2: 11078!!

Edit 3: Um, I found a glitch. I failed the obstacle where you have to jump around a rectangle, and instead of falling, my triangle ran into the wall without falling. I can't jump, I can move side to side, but my score is just constantly going up now. Hasn't yet beaten my PB though.

Edit 4: So, to do the glitch, just jump into that wall I was talking about.

Oh yeah, I changed the collider at the last minute to fix a different bug, and didn't check that! Something to fix for an update, haha

(11078 is a great score)

rad

I love it, the music really sets the mood. It was pretty challenging, mostly when the gap was bigger than usual, usually couldn't get past those haha. Almost made it to 5k on my best,  guess I have to keep trying ;3

The controls are good and feel responsive, good game =)

Charming infinite runner.  I only got 3500 points.  I like the randomly generated map.

I think there's something wrong with the Mac version, I've downloaded and extracted it multiple times, but it says the app is damaged and can't be opened.

It's a recent problem with app signing. A way to fix it is to run 

xattr -d com.apple.quarantine "Triangle Run.app" 

from the terminal. Then it should run fine.

That worked, thank you!

thanks for this! Gonna look into doing this properly for v1.1!

High score so far is 7869 points! I love the triangle friend.

Edit: 10553 on the post-jam version!
