A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

What is this?

Perseverance is a weird bullet hell shooter where you can receive assistance from other players' comments to get stronger. Will you accept the help from other players or beat it by yourself?

Note to jammers:  A new feature of the game will appear after your ship is destroyed three times, this is what makes it fit the theme of the jam (Stronger Together). This game was made in about 4 days.
Average session: 5 minutes

How do I play?

  • WASD / ZQSD / Arrows: Move around the level
  • Mouse / trackpad: aim your ship
  • Left click / space: shoot missiles

The game is hard, any tips?

This game is made to be challenging until a certain point, keep digging and you will find out what we mean.

DON'T GIVE UP. Really.

A note about online features

This game can be played to completion without any internet connection, however the experience will be a little different since it won't have access to the comments section.

The source code

I see a lot of people wondering about how the "receive help from comments" feature is working, so here is a link to the source: https://github.com/colinbellino/brackeys-2021.1
