This is an expansion of my MAGS January 2021 game, 1 or 2 player mayhem trying to gather fishy followers and then keep them away from sharks and nets, whilst you as the leader fish try to evade electric eels and jellyfish. Also featured Endless and Virtual Aquarium modes.

Available only on Itch: https://captaind.itch.io/shoaly-you-cant-be-serious-deluxe-version

Congrats on the release  (nod)

I'm curious, how does multiplayer work?
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

CaptainD

Thanks Cassie!  :)

You each control a fish which has its own shoal. It works exactly the same as in the MAGS version (https://captaind.itch.io/shoaly-you-cant-be-serious-mags-version)

This game is decent fun in single player, but really, it's the two-player action that's the real deal here! I can heartily recommend snapping that fish right under the nose of your daughter's or son's fish!  :-D

Thanks for the comment and for playing, mate! Really I designed this mainly as a game to play with my own daughters (my 7 year-old was my main play-tester and advisor  :-D) so I'm glad your child(ren) enjoyed it too (I'm assuming from your comment that they did, hopefully I'm right!  ;-D)

Oh yes! But we've had to quit out of the program and restart some times to avoid the one player getting too much of a headstart when starting with a bigger shoal than the other. Especially when more than two take turns. But it's fast, so no problem. One of my daughters asked for a high score table (yeah, that's the one with an insane score in single player...). I told her it would only read DAD on the top spots anyway. As if.  (laugh)

CaptainD

Haha well I was trying to avoid that sort of issue by having a combined score in 2-player mode. I kind of deliberately avoided adding a high score table for the same reason...

Yes, I tried to convince my son that we were on the same team against the sharks, but he was quick to point it out when he got a higher score than me!  (laugh)

To celebrate Shoaly You Can't Be Serious (Deluxe Version) receiving a nomination in the AGS Awards 2021 for Best Non-Adventure Game Made With AGS, I've decided to do a giveway. (Also hopefully this means enough people might actually play the game for it to receive some votes in the awards!)
