Where is the toy shovel???

this is very good. This is a DEDEMAKE, because SHORT HIKE was kind of a BREATHOFTHEWILD demake;)

Really cute! The pixel art was really nice :)

The beginning of the game is a little bit harsh, but I got hooked and had to complete it.

Only 2 issues were with the small shovel toy, which wasn’t super obvious at all to locate, and the level design tended to become hard to read by the end, when every feathers were unlocked (too many possibilities without ways to read surroundings).

Still, I really enjoyed the game :)

True... That first shovel was a poor choice... I wanted to have the player scout the bottom of the world to find it but should have thought of a better solution.

Absolutely smitten with this game. Love the soothing beach sounds. The music that pipes in when you first use the golden feather is so chill. The animations are on point. Beautiful sprites and tilesheets. What a solid game...

PS.. do I recognize some Kenney SFX in there?

Thanks for checking out the game. And no. There are no third party assets in this game.

Amazing, short and sweet game !
A really nice demake ! 


Cheers! Thanks for trying it!

I can't seem to get the shovel from the shovel kid.. He always tells me no :/  What am I missing? I only have 3 coins and 2 shells :P
Besides that embarassing situation of mine, the game looks and feels amazing!

Cheers! Try to find the toy shovel.

Awesome game! I just finished it :)

Nice! Thank you so much for giving it a try!

Very interesting. It looks very nice, but there's not much you can do aside from jumping and gliding, which doesn't offer a lot of vertical mobility. Am I missing something?


Just like in adamgryu’s A Short Hike, if you talk to the NPCs they'll give you fetch quests that reward you with upgrades, all of which grant you more vertical mobility. Reaching the peak took me about 20m, it really is what it says in the title.


That's pretty much it David. Thanks!
