Parapapa – GameJam Build


Parapapa, a charming game made for the Global Game Jam 15, has you guiding your brothers and sisters through a huge, scary trap-filled castle.

Being the older sibling, your brothers and sisters look up to you. In this time of fear and danger, you must guide them around a castle, collecting coins along the way. Your brother and sister both follow you all the time, making a train of children. In each level, there are a set number of coins that need to be collected. Once all the coins are collected by you and your siblings, a treasure chest in the middle explodes, showing a key. Once the key is collected, you can guide your siblings through the door onto the next level.

These siblings can get very frightened in this dangerous castle if they are not distracted by collecting coins. If they spend too long thinking about the situation, questions like “what do we do now?” and “what is the purpose of life?” start to freak them out further. These children can literally be scared to death by these questions. Each level has its own challenges, whether it be fireballs or tiles that make you slide in whatever direction you are facing, you must get the key before the siblings freak out. Be a good big sibling and get your brothers and sisters out of this huge castle!
