foopy64 (James Miller) 3 6 1 3 1 3 1 5 4 the whole time i was fighting the controls in a worthless effort to try and move the dude to the bacon.

slimjimnabil (Nabil) 6 8 1 2 2 6 1 4 5 Controls made the game very hard to enjoy. Any new button press would 1. not register and 2. kill the old input, making it hard to change directions effectively.
momspaghetti (Daniel Sitnick) 7 7 1 3 7 4 2 8 6 I like this game, it's very charming and it looks good. It has a nice, simple concept to stick to. My main gripe is the controls. Because it doesn't allow diagonal movement, it creates weird buggy movement when you try to change direction too quickly. It's difficult, but not in a fair way.

    I don't know if I have time to implement bacon... This game is nothing without bacon!!!!

    The movement was a bit... off, other than that, interesting idea and pretty cute graphics! I included it in part 6 of my Bacon Game Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/Z015piWjG00

    @josefnpat This problem only occurs to me when i try to hit 2 buttons at once (Here i refer to the hint in the description). And the black border was supposed to look a lot smoother with the black part starting up against the outer tree's, sadly i didn't have time for that.

    the wasd controls were really glitchy. I'd have to let go of all keys and wait a second before choosing a new direction. Otherwise, interesting concept for a game. Also, what was with the black edges?

    He is collecting bacon. Having no dialog I was hoping it would be a dead giveaway.
