Fun fact story from Bob's development:

During early stages of dev our character could only jump, so main gameplay mechanic looked like this:

Later on some strange bug occured. Wnem you were pressing "aim" button player was jumping (in mid air), and it was not ment to behave like that.

We have made some play test sessions with that,

and during them this bug was providing a ton of fun...

So we have polished it and made into game as FLYING!

It was not much work and results are superb.

 

So dont always fix all of your bugs guys !

Sometimes bugs can be a blessing ;)

P.S. 

Here you can se a gameplay trailer and more info about Bouncy Bob:

      Dialogue systems suck. I hate them. I have been working on one for a project and it is just so frustrating! I finally got it just barely working, but it's the most hacked together bullshit dialogue system possible and I don't even really understand how it works. I'm just glad I can forget about it for a while, and work on the rest of the game.

      I was tying to figure out what to do with my procedural planets and for an initial step and I wanted to fly a spacecraft in and establish a low orbit around my world starting from some distant point and initial velocity.  I know how to set up the gravity and I think I can pretty much do manual controls that will simulate Newtonian physics. However what I'm looking for is some software or algorithms that let me establish the orbit by controlling thrust in the right direction at the appropriate points in a trip towards the planet.
      So I guess the software would accept something like starting position, starting velocity, desired orbit height (I'm assuming circular for now) , and desired orbit plane.  From there it would give me firing points, duration and trust vectors needed to for the orbit.  To make things simpler I'm assuming infinite fuel. I figure NASA must do stuff like this all the time but I haven't been able to find something solid on how it's done.  Perhaps it's too complex, I'm not really sure, but I thought I throw the question out there anyway.

      Hi guys! Our first game (Dongo Adventure) has just been released on Steam! I hope you have fun with the game! O/
      The game was produced by me and my brother for 11 months. We did everything with free and open source software (Blender 3D and Gimp).
      About the game: The game is 3D Platform style, inspired by the classic platform games (mainly 'Donkey Kong Country 2'), bringing all those challenges and fun of the genre. Thank you all for the support!

      I've recently added a mini map on the right upper corner of the screen.
      With this the player can now see in which room it's currently in.
      That mini map get updated when the player moves to another room.
      In the future most rooms will be hidden until the player discovers it by either moving to a new room or, in the case of hidden rooms break a breakable wall or open the locked door.
