In Character

SatoriLetters can be shifty little things sometimes. Despite all their good public works like sponsoring childrens' educational programming and varsity athletes' jackets, as anyone with dyslexia can tell you they're just waiting for their chance to flip around on you. That lowercase p is silently yearning to become a q or maybe even a b at the most inopportune time. Those of us with less-than-stellar penmanship can rejoice, because Robson has dreamed up In Character, an action strategy game in which all that letter ambiguity can actually be a good thing... like when you're a lowercase t hanging off a ledge over a fifty-foot drop straight into a pool of bubbling magma. You know. Like you do.

Using the [arrows], you'll be trying to get your letter through the level and into the safe zone at the end. To avoid the obstacles and pools of molten lava placed rather inconveniently — not to mention improbably! — in your way, you can metamorphose from one letter to another by pressing the corresponding letter key. You'll be limited by the letters in your inventory, although you can acquire more as you progress through a level. In Character was devised as an offering to appease the mighty MiniLD 49 tiki, and we thought you'd enjoy its unique concept and, uh, character. At the moment its twelve levels won't take you terribly long, but here at JayisGames we thought this one showed enough promise to be deserving of a little more love, and if we're very fortunate perhaps even a level editor to go along with it. At the moment this is a fun little break-sized game to brighten your day, and we'd love to know what you think of it.

I thought this was extremely clever, and I'd absolutely love to see more of it! Perhaps a small disappointment that there wasn't more wordplay involved (disclaimer: I love wordplay; I think the Blocks With Letters On series is the best thing ever), but there were some hints of it, which shows its potential. And I think the shapeshifting mechanic is a particularly neat one, made all the cooler by the fact that it's not arbitrary shapes but specifically letters.

I like this concept, it could use more levels to really explore it more, and then levels to test your skill with it.

I can only agree with all the other comments! Amazing game, and I really hope this is fleshed out into an actual game, preferably a downloadable one so we can buy it and reward the developer for this amazing idea!

This is a great game! I especially loved the quick action levels. Made me think about key placement. I would really look forward to more like this.

Reminds me of ASCIIvania, a little.

I wonder if you could combine the two gameplay gimmicks somehow...

Perfect length for when you just need a few minutes away from stuff; a much-needed brain break! :D
