Game description

Curse of The Nekomancer is a cute but tough, short, tile-based puzzle game about a cat cursed with nekomancy.

Traverse a set of diverse levels while dodging your evil skeletal copycats, as you try to find a way out of your curse.


Jam interpretation

This game was a submission to Mini Jam 111: Colors² where the limitation was: 'You are your own enemy'. 

This I have interpreted as your inputs and controls being directly tied to the enemies'. 

If you die, it was a direct result of your own inputs.

Fantastic game, the levels are CHALLENGING (and that music is slowly eating me). The art is superb, and adding CRT-like effects adds to the mystery aspect of the 'nekomancer'. Overall a really nice puzzle game!

Thank you so much for the kind words! It’s really good to hear from you again ^^

I have to give your jam game a shot as well! I will do it once I’ve spared up some extra time. Wish you the best!


No problem! Thanks too!
