Half Empty is a 2D/3D minimalist platformer! I strongly discourage watching the trailer prior to playing the game.

This was my first complete game that I made! The game was made ENTIRELY by me. I created all of the 2D art, 3D art, Textures, sound effects, and music. I also handled all of the programming and writing.

  ฅ/ᐠ。ᆽ。ᐟ \ Hello~

Nice little game you have here, and I commend you for creating all the assets presented here. I loved the part with the music notes and castle puzzle - those maps  were a treat to wander in and experience. My only minor complaint is the short duration of the game as I saw a lot of potential near the end of the game, but was disappointed that it stopped when I wanted more. 

To be honest, I thought the game was glitched at first as I was stuck in the first map without triggering anything. Beyond the first level, everything was enjoyable, and I loved some of the small details involved with the puzzles. Reversing the music was a nice touch, and I thought it was amazing to see the assets change art styles.

Overall, nice job! Lovely music as well. 


A strange but pretty enjoyable game to play and explore. I guess it's good that you don't know about it beforehand, so that the element of surprise works. If you're interested, you could enter this game into our contest, the Game Development World Championship!


This game is awesome and knowing that you are the only one that created it is even better. I had a good time with this game and great work on the game man
