Welcome back you landlubbers,
As announced last week, we did the first test on our game Hook Cat last week. We'll tell you how it went in a moment.
Game Tests
Our programmer is still working very hard on the implementation of the graphics in Unity. If everything works out, we can show you a walkthrough next week!
As I said, did a test. Since the implemented level is not finished yet, we let the test subjects play the test level of Article 8. This allowed us to test the mechanics a bit. The tests were conducted online via Discord.

If you would like to do a test, you can download the tested version here:

Objective: find all 5 ship parts. Have you found this stop the game! You can hang on the trees and defeat opponents by shooting.


WASD - Run

Mouse - Controlling the grappling hook

Left button - Shoot grappling hook

Right button - Release the grappling hook when the grappling hook is hanging on a tree

Spacebar - jump to a higher level when the grappling hook is hanging on a tree

The tests turned out to be very mixed. The testers liked the ideas and the mechanics, but the controls were a bit of a problem and the graphics were unambiguous.
A new concept for climbing control has now been designed and implementation is a priority.
The direction keys on the tree should be used to climb up and down. Currently, the space bar is still used for jumping, which didn't seem logical to the players.


We also designed our poster and don't want to withhold it from you:
