Kevin Michael Connolly: THE VIDEO GAME
Believe it. It’s true.
A bit on how to play the game:
It is a 2D platformer, inspired in part by Super Metroid, where you must explore a large world, collect powerups and find secrets. The game’s hook comes from the fact that the main character, Jack (READ: Kevin), has no legs. As such, you cannot walk, run, jump or do most things you would want to do in a typical platformer. Instead, the game is entirely controlled with the mouse: you move around by grabbing and dragging yourself forward. As you explore the world, you gain new abilities that give you new moves, such as the ability to launch yourself into the air or to pick up and throw boulders.
Everything in the game can be done with the mouse. If you are worried about wearing out your left mouse button, Z, X and spacebar all perform the same function as the left mouse button.
Pressing R while in-game will reload your last saved game. Pressing S will mute/un-mute sounds and music. Pressing M will open the map, assuming you have a map.
I’m really feeling speechless on this one. I’ll leave it to you to comment…
