"Death never takes a wise man by surprise; he is always ready to go." - Jean de la Fontaine.


'Here You Remain' is a 2D platformer about sacrificing yourself for the greater good.

Lost in a cave, you must find and rescue your brother before it's too late.
Find your path through continual self-sacrifice, but beware, for once you lose your soul, you will never fully regain it.

Every time you die, your corpse remains. Stack your bodies to create platforms, sacrifice yourself so next time you can jump across that spike pit.

Before you respawn, your soul escapes and can move around and see routes that are hidden from mortal eyes. Try to get it back - you can reclaim part of what you lose with every death...

Made for #AGJ2021.

Very impressive game developed over a 48 hour game jam! Really like the sound in the cave and the "spirit" as it ascends. Great use of the bodies as a platform to the next obstacle, very inventive.
