momspaghetti (Daniel Sitnick) 6 8 7 4 2 2 2 5 4 This game is very pretty and has a nice atmosphere. The bird sounds, the trees, it all looks, sounds, and feels very nice. However, many games in this game jam, this one included, are ruined by bad controls. Yes, squirrels are fast, but they also don't have to take 20 feet to go to a full stop, and they definitely don't fly in the air. The look sensitivity is very high as well. You could have also baked the lighting instead of using realtime shadows, and it would have looked and ran a lot faster.

    Heh you can use the strategy I use if you want, run as fast as you can to get 3 nuts, then duck into one of the corners hope there are mounds. Hope that helps with saving the family >.<.

    "You're entire family died...yeah.", so i became Super_Turbo_Squirrel and jumped for at least a quarter of an hour through the landscape. It is indeed awesome! :D

    Hey McDroid think you could shoot us a pic of that? It's working on our Browsers. Thanks for playing!

    Cute idea! Feel like I'm just killing countless families of squirrels with my fails lol.

    The lesson I learned from this game is I'll never survive as a squirrel in real life haha! I do like how you can play from the point of view of the squirrel the whole time.

    The whole open world is really pretty for 48 hours, nice job! The game ran "fine" under linux (lack of mouselock). Please release a linux bin at some point!

    Nice game!

    Cool game, Squirrels run SO fast. 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
