My Boots is a game where the floor is lava. There's regular lava too don't worry. Your Boots will keep you protected from the heat but they are too heavy to jump off the ground with so you'll have to leave them behind. You're safe to jump off of walls any which way you'd like but you'll always be out of one pair of boots and into the next.

Why does this look like your first GameMaker game?

That's because it is.

Why can you touch walls if they look like the ground?

I only said the floor was lava.

What's the story here?

A squircle and their boots.

Why can you wall jump with the boots on but you can't jump off the ground with them?

I'm not really sure. It looks funny though so it's okay.

Why aren't there more mechanics?

I decided I wanted to specifically explore the core mechanic of the game, movement. The movement in the game is pretty fun as is. Expect new content added to the game to include brand new mechanics. Each new mechanic would be focused on as much as each element of moving is now.
