Hi i made an account just to comment on how great the game is. My girlfriend and I played this game and she is not a gamer but loved the puzzles and thought the game was very cute (like how the two players smile at each other but are sad when over a screen apart). The puzzles are challenging just the right amount, definitely not too easy and not so difficult that we get stuck for hours. Visuals are great, experienced no problems or glitches, can't find any other kinds of faults. Music is good, can't say I love it but that is personal preference. Perhaps some feedback is we found some levels where it is quite difficult to tell what is background and what is platform. I would rate this 9/10 as it was such a fun experience to play through. There was even a moment in one of the levels where we were trying for about 15 minutes to set up to get a lipstick, for us to burst out laughing out of sheer frustration when she was meant to catch a camper but instead threw one off the ledge. Definitely a moment to remember. Thank you so much for your time and effort in making this amazing game, and helping random people around the world like us smile.

Hi! Hopefully this reply isn't too late but thank you so much for taking the time to play our game. Reading stuff like this is amazing and we're really happy that you and your girlfriend were able to enjoy it. <3

How do you get the first two children in One Horse Town in singleplayer? It was impossible to throw the other guy up

You only need to collect one child to beat One Horse Town! The others are optional, and can be difficult to get, especially in single player. try playing more of the other levels and coming back later.

Strangest thing: I could complete Richard and Too Much Honey; but with The Bite, I can't get past the hill.

(+2)

And now, I'm stuck at the end of that "glitchy" one, the name escapes me. Same problem as The Bite: No matter what I do, only one character can progress.

(+2)

Nevermind about The Bite. Figured it out.

(+1)

This little thread was so satisfying to read! keep at it, puzzsoft is rooting for you! that last set of puzzles in This Game Busted is a tricky lot...

(+1)

Done.

America Today beat. collected the cig, not the lipstick

(+2)

At last i finished the 3rd level

we are going to play the alpha next :)

awesome work! I look forward to seeing you progress through the game! you actually got the last boy in that level in a way ive never seen before!

thanks for watching, i hope you enjoy it :)

thanks for cousin to play it with me so we could finish this game :)

press 6 and right shift!? wtf!? i don't have a right shift on my keyboard. and why was 4 jump. wtf are these controls and how do i change them?? unplayable

the 2 player 1 keyboard controls are chosen to avoid n-key rollover. But regardless the mode is cramped and the buttons are strange. If you're playing co-op id highly reccomend controllers. If you're playing single player, those keyboard controls are much more normal

i don't own/like controllers. should just allow custom controls. unity has an input rebind built in. just use that.

(-1)

I can play the game now but you must fix the bugs because i can pass through the walls. You must organize the control scheme. and jumping mechanic is so bad you must fix it.Without these problems the game looks so good.

Add a 32 bit version. I really want to play it.

Added, not sure if it will work, but you can be our Guinea Pig!

Good afternoon, I would like to know if the game can put two people, one in one house and another in another house, playing mutiplayer, you probably already explained that in the description, but I don't understand English very much

You can't do this from within the game, but some people have played online using Parsec co-play:

level 2

(+1)

this game is fun for 2 player so we played it as 2 player :)

(+3)

My brother and I had fun with this one. Really cute visuals. My only criticism would be that the difficulty curve is pretty aggressive, especially on level 3

(1 edit) (+1)

Thank you! Glad you both had fun :D

do we can rotate which side we could take the camper?  on level 3, both pink and blue camper only take up side

you can not rotate! keep exploring the level...

i mean, how can you rotate those camper like in the 4th picture (the gif where the blue camper get L shape)

(+1)

campers cannot be rotated/rearranged, if you keep exploring you will see how to get the L shape :)

Quick Update! Our most recent upload included Save data from another playthrough. We've updated the download on itch to fix this. To enjoy the full game from the start, please delete the "saves" folder to refresh the game. Sorry for the confusion!!!

(1 edit)

If you downloaded Trail Mix and you started at the level door for a level called 'Roll Away' please either head to the left of the level select to reach the first level or delete your save file.

It was great seeing you at Level Up, the game was lots of fun! Can't wait to support the official release. 


2 Person 1 Keyboard mode?

planned, should be in for 1.0 <3

(+2)

Got the chance to try this game at the Level Up showcase and I'm glad it's available for download! A fun cooperative puzzle platformer that encourages a lot of teamwork and problem solving. What really brings the game together is the amazing art style and level design. You can tell the developers have a lot of experience with these kinds of games and really knew what they were doing.

(+1)

Man, this looks really nice! Love the art style. I'll have to give it a go with my brother when it comes out.
