Mimicriiii: GMTK Game Jam Mimicry Sequel?

A couple of weeks ago I participated in the 2021 Game Maker’s Toolkit Game Jam. For those that don’t know, it’s the 2nd most participated game jam in the world, and the biggest for itch(dot)io, hosted by the amazing Game Maker’s Toolkit Youtube creator, Mark Brown. After participating last year, and having an awesome experience, I contemplated whether I should give it a go this year. My schedule is spread pretty thin, so I held off to see the reveal of this year’s theme. If it spoke to me, I’d jump at the opportunity. The theme announcement came, “Joined Together.” It felt like the universe was tossing me a bone. I felt a lot of emotions, because the entire game jam demo stuck my mind with the immediacy of a lighting bolt. I had to work on ideas left aside for Mimicry, and tackle what I had written in my notebook for a Mimicry 2.

It fit the theme perfectly. The movement and goals of 4 characters are joined together by the controls. Simple. Each character however has their own gravity, and movement direction, making puzzles tricky, but so satisfying to complete.

Please give it a shot!
