A short underwater adventure originally made for Ludum Dare 48 in under 72 hours. We spent some extra time to polish it and fix things after the jam.

Story

You are a globefish named Bubblyn, on your way to the breeding grounds with your partner Booba and your friend Joefish the blowfish. However, there has been an oil spill that’s blocking your usual path down to the bottom of the ocean. The alternate route holds many unforseen dangers. Will everyone make it down in one piece?

Made by Blackthornprod, Jonas Tyroller, Yän with the player character's voice acting by Klara Tyroller.

Alternative controls for trackpad players

  • Steer with mouse movements
  • Hold Spacebar to move forwards
  • Hold Alt to switch to the blown-up state

i went back up after beating the game what do i get?

I found a glitch. If you get out of the water by spamming right click, than you can go really fast and across the map in a second.

What a beautiful little game! Very immersive, loved it :-))

Awesome game!

Wow, this was a fascinating experience, can't believe how much playtime there actually was. I also liked the simplicity of the controls + it was moderately challenging, nothing too easy, but also nothing too rage-inducing, just right for my taste.

Really good, I made it to the end. Better than Flappy Bird! Cool atmospheric music and visuals. Easy to use controls. Well placed save points when you die.

Thank you! Congratulations for making it all the way!

sexy game

I followed Blackthronprod and Jonas's dev streams on you-tube and I was super curious to try it out myself. It's simplicity, use of colours, art, creative monster design and gameplay is fantastic. Its great seeing my favorite You Tubers collaborate and create such a masterpiece game jam submission. Well done to the gang behind this. 

Really beautiful game <3

I kept spamming SPACE and it just flew up into Space?!

Space checks out

Wat I NEED to do dat

Simple mechanics and beautiful graphics. Manages to be adorable and terrifying at the same time. Would recommend, and would definitely play a sequel.

4 gods came together to make this masterpiece!

I really liked it, wish that swimming against blocks and THEN activating puff form didn't just eat the input tho, the blocks stayed whole

(+1)

I want a sequel :(

It's called: Joefish: the revival

(+1)

So, are we just gonna ignore the fact that Joe/Joel just died...

Show post...

yea cuz there is no sequel :(

(+1)

Very fun, the voice acting adds a lot, instead of boring text boxes, and the art is amazing, too!

Oh, I bid farewell to the port and the land

And I paddle away from brave England's white sands

To search for my long ago forgotten friends

To search for the place I hear all sailors end

As the souls of the dead fill the space of my mind

I'll search without sleeping 'til peace I can find

I fear not the weather, I fear not the sea

I remember the fallen, do they think of me?

When their bones in the ocean forever will be

Plot a course to the night to a place I once knew

To a place where my hope died along with my crew

So I swallow my grief and face life's final test

To find promise of peace and the solace of rest

As the songs of the dead fill the space of my ears

Their laughter like children, their beckoning cheers

My heart longs to join them, sing songs of the sea

I remember the fallen, do they think of me?

When their bones in the ocean forever will be

When at last before my ghostly shipmates I stand

I shed a small tear for my home upon land

Though their eyes speak of depths filled with struggle and strife

Their smiles below say I don't owe them my life

As the souls of the dead fill the space of my eyes

And my boat listed over and tried to capsize

I'm this far from drowning, this far from the sea

I remember the living, do they think of me?

When my bones in the ocean forever will be

Now that I'm staring down at the darkest abyss

I'm not sure what I want but I don't think it's this

As my comrades call to stand fast and forge on

I make sail for the dawn 'til the darkness has gone

As the souls of the dead live for'er in my mind

As I live all the years that they left me behind

I'll stay on the shore but still gaze at the sea

I remember the fallen and they think of me

For our souls in the ocean together will be

I remember the fallen and they think of me

For our souls in the ocean together will be

10/10 game!

That was a very nice game to play, sound design is awesome :)
I was a little bit confused with two circling things in the deep, maybe they should be more responsive to player, if it is a secret

Thank you! Glad you like the audio :)

The circling fish were added pretty much last minute just so that there's something in the room which was already there but empty.

I found a place it showed three pics (WIll you snail) (Glihion) And I forgot is that the secret sprite?

(+1)

This was a fun game with a very unique artstyle

(+2)

loved the game. The part where the fish died freaked me out. good job, (especially Jonas's sister)

Thanks! Sorry for the fish-death lol

And you're right, Klara did an amazing job!

(+1)

Incredible game and art style!I loved everything, congrats!

(+1)

nice game, whichI could have avenged the fish that got killed.
not sure but did the fish who ran off at the very beginning make it to the end?

Also, in the place where that one fish died I found a place with 2 circling water snake things which was a dead end. was there supposed to be something.

RIP Unnamed fish! :'-(

(+1)

Thank you for playing!
The circling fish themselves are the secret / easter egg. Nothing else there. The fish who ran off at the very beginning is Joefish whom you later meet again just before... you know...
So yeah the name of the "Unnamed" fish is Joefish.

yeah I kind of played the game muted for undisclosed reasons, so I kind of didnt follow the dialog at all.
it was probably mentioned there I guess :-)

(+1)

Well Done!

(+5)

still not over the fact the other fish died. Goodbye cruel world

It's a tragedy. Still not over it myself :'(

Hey, thanks for watching my streams, much appreciated :)


Glad you liked our little game :)

Oh no, now I never want to become a fish again! So scary! Brrlrlrlrlrl


Wonderful game!

Haha thank you. It's scary down in the deep sea

That was... disconcerting.
