What is WaveJump?

Made in 48 hours during the Global Game Jam 2017, WaveJump is an ultra fast multiplayer brawler about shooting and dodging shockwaves. Select one of the three available characters and compete with friends in random sets of hand crafted 2d arenas to prove who is the best!

NB: This is our side project that we are developing while working at the main project.

Interesting. Would love to see more.

Upvoted! :)
Looks solid, but I really can't stress the importance of single player importance as well, even in a multiplayer-focused game.

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!

It's very nice! I was at the same GGJ site and I think this was the best game there. Cool work

Hi, I'm one third of the development team.
We will discuss about a single player and we'll try to come with something interesting, but the game is heavily focused on the multiplayer.
About the "4 player support, if it works", is just to be 100% honest, since we have to test if it's not too messy and if we can figure out how to make it enjoyable.
Remember that it's just a little free to play game, we just thought that the game has potential and we received very positive feedback during the GGJ.

"4 player support, if it works"

Not a terribly compelling thing to say.

Looks very simple. I like the start style.

I don't think that this will have a lot of longevity. The gameplay is very simple, there doesn't seem to be much mechanical variety or customization, and since it lacks any kind of singleplayer, the game will most likely be bricked and totally unplayable within the first year, if not immediately at launch if it doesn't get a sizable playerbase.

I don't think Steam is the ideal target for a game like this. No thanks.
