    In No Manatees Promised you'll be playing a bunch of minigames and enjoying a lush underwater world full with life.

    It's a lighthearted game filled with a slice of humour. Playtime is roughly 15 minutes.

    You want some kind of story? Too bad, because there is none.

    There are, however, a total of 4 mini-games which test your finger speed, memory and reactions.

    Will there be Manatees? Well, you will have to play the game to see.

    Thank you, we'll see how it goes, although it is likely that a more story-heavy game will be chosen.

    Shoot, I did forget story was gonna be looked at too!

    But don't forget, that there are other categories the games will be judged on, which aren't related to storylines at all(story is covered in presentation).

    When it comes to all the different RPG games, you never know who'll win what! But you chose to compete, so you might as well try your best! ;)

    Here's my very quick and sketchy take on the game (link for info on why it's so short and all that jazz)




    +Nice graphics. With the exception of the flying fish game everything felt fitting.


    +The fakeout at the start is amusing.


    +Control was responsive (except the flying fish minigame, which had me just going all around).


    -The flying fish minigame felt unresponsive and wonky.


    -I’m not a fan of time limits.


    To the developer: I feel like I’m not really someone who can talk about puzzle games, because they are so not my genre. The graphics were very nice, but ultimately the variety of minigames was nothing I particularly wanted to keep playing (or even try again after failing, but then again I’m really piss poor at these things).


    It seems like a lot of work went into the graphics and nothing (with the exception of the bird thing during the flying fish minigame) felt off.
