the windows version is not centered and some of it is cut off, what should i do?
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Pearl Grabber is a game that is about finding clams and grabbing pearls.
-there's different abilities
-original music and graphics
inspired by the feeling of exploring small details in open world games and exploring someone's personality/outlook when related to their art.
the linux version is untested, and i have no way to test it. i am just trusting godot for that one.
EDIT: apparently the linux version works fine, sweet.

Played this one a day or two ago and it's still fresh on my mind. I'm a bit biased towards simple collecting games and this did a great job at scratching the itch. I opened the game again after beating it to get the pearls that weren't required of me and was very pleased to get one of those voiced existential quotes I would have woefully missed otherwise. I very much second the other peoples' sentiment that this would be great as a paid-game length experience. This is the third game of yours that successfully entertained my stubborn, childish attention span. Thank you, Yatoimtop!
This was fabulous...but did you have to look at me so hard? I know you made this for you, but I think you made it for me, too.
i really, really liked this. kinda sad to finish the game tbh, but all good things must come to an end ‹3
I am so joyful for having grabbed all the clams! Thank you!
Have you uploaded the source code anywhere? I would love to mess around with the cool visuals of this game
Game looks awesome except I have one issue.
I cannot move the game window, and it's stuck off-center.
hello! not sure why that's happening, but try using alt enter to fullscreen the application! alt enter should also undo it as well.
Amazing !!! More games like this pleeaase !!!
On the same concept you could even make a bigger island a little bit like The Witness and make a full commercial game out of it ! I would pay for that haha !
I really enjoyed the game. More games in that style would be interesting. I loved the colors and some conversations between the players. Congratulations.
yeah! the button next to the sign is a respawn for the ball. i hope you enjoy the rest of the game!
To start off I want to say I love the style and graphics. It reminds me of like PS1/PS2 style games, and that is super cozy to me. Honestly, I couldn't imagine the game with any other style.
So the core gameplay loop of finding pearls is surprisingly fun and addicting. I genuinely had a lot of fun just hopping around finding pearls and progressing the game. I thought the additional puzzles (beach ball/museum) were pretty cool and they provided me with an "Aha!" moment each time it all clicked.
The characters are super well done. I liked each of their personalities, their dialogue and the parts they played in the game. Statue dude was funny, but started putting off a bad vibe. Dude on the big dude made me just wanna chill and vibe with him. Spooky ghosty boy hit me with big mood statements. The characters didn't feel flat, they felt like they had depth and for a game about grabbing pearls that was something I did not expect.
My only complaint is there isn't a setting menu. The game wasn't fullscreen for me, and I had to turn down my headset volume a bit. I'd have preferred to open a settings menu and adjust those things there.
Overall I had a blast with Pearl Grabber, and I look forward to anything else you put out. This game was phenomenal! Keep it up. :)
Really really good. The only thing that I would add is an options menu to change maybe sensitivity, have fullscreen and other things like that. Question: If the two guys are the same person, then who are we;
It was a little surprising, I wasn't expecting for some introspective moment. Regardless it was really fun to play, I loved the superjump haha. I'll watch you for something else, maybe something more puzzly-ish. OH! That ball, cursed be that ball.
the ball is the most innovative game mechanic in video game history only parallelled by the fast drop button in tetris
I had the pleasure of reviewing your game:
couldnt get the clam lockers were in the way noice
What else can I say? It's grabby. And pearly.
Oh yes! Of course, it's also... GREAT!
Haha, thanks for the game! I'm really looking forward to what else you have to produce, I like the idea of having a summer project, hope you keep it up!
Only "complaint" is not knowing that I could stop the ball with the hand x.x (I found out after reading the txt file... it works on my Arch Linux installation flawlessly btw! YAY GODOT!!)
Hmm. Oh yes, I've wanted to invite you and any other people surfing synchronicities and such to the http://pl.wizards.zone -- I'm just experimenting with running some nerd social media network software and am trying to make a cool crazy creative place
Thanks again, would play again
yoo thank you! glad it works on linux. and i will take a peep at the wizard only social media 👀
I have a weird obsession with collectibles in games so I instantly knew this was something I was going to like. I had no idea I would end up loving this madness quite as much as I do though!!
Amazing game dev :D i hope you enjoy my gameplay
