Bye Ember is a 2.5D platformer featuring one level of speed running challenge. Know your routes and beat your own time!

Created for the Make-A-Level Game Jam (Leap Day 2020) with the "Incongruous" theme. So the idea of a lone fire keeper in an icy world was born!

Gameplay & design inspired by classic games Super Mario and Megaman Zero.
