What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'd like to continue the expansion of this game. It currently has a sizable amount of content, but I'd also like to add a complete narrative, many more levels, and possibly a level editor with Steam Workshop Support.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Roughly by the end of 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Future Features:
  • Complete story
  • A truly painful Hardmode
  • Many more levels
  • Achievements
  • High Score Board (Both Time to Complete, as well as Death Count)
  • Controller Support
  • Possibly a Level Editor with Steam Workshop support.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently has around 35+ levels + several secrets.

Every level utilizes a collection of different enemies and challenges to overcome.

In it's current state, it'll probably take a 1-3 hours to complete, depending on your proficiency with retro-platforming games.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will gradually increase as Jump Off The Bridge becomes more robust and fills with content.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will be taking into consideration community wishes as to the future development of Jump Off The Bridge on the Steam Community Forums.

Please also reach out to my support email at jumpoffthebridgex@gmail.com for suggestions, bug reports, as well as any questions regarding future content, or even just comments.”

About This Game


JOTB is an absurd retro-platformer game with a seemingly simple task; jump off the bridge.

FEATURES:

  • 35+ Levels of increasing difficulty
  • Extreme Level Variety: Fetch Quests, Platforming Challenges, Puzzle Levels, Reaction Time Levels, and Boss Levels.
  • Retro sounds dating back to the Old School Consoles of the 90's.
  • Jump Off The Bridge is a precise and tightly controlled Platformer without the slip n' slide motion.
  • Features a very challenging end game!
  • Several secrets hidden within the game!
  • Features a quirky sense of humor despite the goal!

GAMEPLAY

Jump Off The Bridge is a platformer with an emphasis on difficulty and unique level design. Each level, the player is required to jump off the bridge, but dying in any other sense, is failure. You may encounter characters that require items, methodical puzzle levels, intensely difficult platforming, tough levels that test your reaction time, and even bosses. Jump Off The Bridge is a meticulously crafted world that avoids the overuse of previously introduced sprites and characters. Every level feels unique, and is memorable.


As a retro-gamer, I wanted to create an homage to the games I know and love; nail-biting platformer games with interesting worlds and enemies. JOTB is a passion project crafted with an emphasis on humor, absurdity, and unique level design. I'm aware retro-platforming indie games tend to be the punchline of the joke within game development circles. However, this retro-platformer is a far cry from its contemporaries.

Are you a platforming god?

If this game isn't hard enough for you, don't worry, Hardmode is a planned feature for following updates. And I promise, it will be horribly difficult.
