Really cool game

Hey i just beat your game and i have to say you did a really good job.

what program did you use for this masterpiece?

It says Godot under “More Information”! Along with Blender, Aseprite and Photoshop.

(I’m not the type to leave comments but I really love Godot and want it to have more exposure so here!)

thanks for replying, I totally missed this post.

Yes. Made with Godot ❤️

The game is extremely beautiful and enjoyable at the concept. But it has some troubles with controls. May be it would be better to have separate binding  for rope grab, beacuse the situation when rope is close to the wall are often and its almost impossible to hook the wall — character grabs rope back. Also its not always obvious which wall you can hook and which not.

Special thanks for full gamepad support :)


Beat it with 26 deaths. Really enjoyable game. I loved it. Great work!


Bellissima atmosfera!


damn, totally love it, payed on my stream today and got hook to play more and collect all the keys, i want to see this on steam *_* keep up bro.

The game looks really beautiful
Any idea if you can try distributing the game on https://flathub.org/home ?
If you're interested, see https://github.com/godotengine/godot-docs/issues/2993  for reference on how to do it!

Again, thanks for the awesome game! Looks really cool!
Adding on Flathub could boost visibility amongst Linux users


Me parece fantástico, tiene buenos gráficos y unas mecánicas originales, son difíciles de adaptarse pero esta bien. me gustaría que no se pudieran pone tantas cuerdas porque hay veces donde unos se enreda con tantas cuerdas, estaría bien un mapa, otra cosa que me gustaría seria es se pueda mejorar algunas cosas, se que las cosas se mejoran automáticamente pero se hace muy difícil poder salir con tan poco tiempo



Haha, poor Franz!


The graphics and visual are stunning! wow🙌 masterpiece.


Harder than it looks, i took me some time before i got adapted, but pretty funny.

Here is my channel if you want to taje a peek / Aquí esta  mi canal por si quieren echarle una ojeada .

Wouldn't recommend: you cannot save your progress. Very glitchy at times. Frustrating.


i can´t play it :( is beacause it is in gless3 ?

If you can only run GLES2 games, then it is probably that.

true :( 


this game perfectly could be to sell it, when will be finished

Will still take a while!

I love the graphics and the atmosphere. Maybe you could add a button to grab, and not the arrow keys, because it's quite difficult to use the ice axe correctly.

EDIT : allright, I just finished the game, and the end let think about a second part in the desert ! Finally I don't think that the ice axe is a problem, but the hitbox is sometime a little bit erratic.

from surface right to the void

too hard... i every time die to the last  jumo to base.

What a beautiful game. Are you still working on the full feature version of Bottomless?

And how did you manage to create this game in a single week? That's incredible! Can you share some tips, what did your workflow look like, etc.?


If you are having issues on BIGSUR (Mac). Open a terminal window, copy and paste: sudo chmod -R 755 and then drag and drop the application into the terminal window from your FINDER window, press Return. You have to do this because the OS needs the full path to the file, this is the easiest way to do it! It will ask you to type your password when you hit Return.

BIGSUR broke a lot of apps, including this.

Great Thanks. help me also on Monterey.


Great game! very polished and fantastic art. How did you create the terrain? They look very organic.

Hey, thanks!
It was painted in Aseprite :)

In my recent discovery, this is the best game.The most important thing is that he is pixelated.Very support the author.

I am in love with artwork in the game and think it has potential to be a great adventure game.

Something where you have lots of caverns to explore, each with it own perils to navigate(for example you could have areas full of snow or ice that make getting around more dangerous) , and perhaps resources for you to collect and carry back to camp to upgrade your tools( The ability to have longer ropes, carry more flares

have a Gas mask to go through certain areas, or different tools that work better in certain terrain)  

I would love something in this art style that just lets you freely explore caves and mountains and figure out your own way to get around


Hey, thanks for the positive and interesting feedback!


The game is pretty good but it needs more content or some arcade mode. The only bad thing is that is too short and it has low replayability


It was a gamejam game made in a week 😉

Hey, I like the game concept and atmosphere. I can actually say it is the best quality godot game I've ever played.  Let me leave a negative review to help you; the gravity value in character physics is falling too fast, too much. You can make jumping and falling a little smoother. Also, at the beginning of the game, I waited to encounter enemies to be able to shoot, even if it was a snack. I wish you success.

Hey! This looks really good, but I can't run it on MacOS. I saw the comment about it, but I'm new to itch, so if I could get some additional guidance that would be great! Thank you!

Dev said " did you try running it with:

chmod -R +x Bottomless.app in Terminal"


still not works

I would love to help out, but I don't have a Mac and can't look into the problem you have :(

Macos version doesn't work. 


did you try running it with:

chmod -R +x Bottomless.app in Terminal


Yep,  it's working now : ) thank you. 


what font did you use? Can you include the download link? Thanks

All praise for the game has kinda already been said...

Which font do you mean?

(1 edit)

The "You died " font. From the message that appears when you die
Been seeing that a lot while playing

Quite a nice font though


324 / 5000

the game is incredible, I have no criticism, because the whole game was thought to be difficult, for people to be more interested in playing, I analyzed everything the game design is incredible, great music, and the gameplay is very challenging, just for you to feel challenged and keep playing, it took me 137 minutes to finish


Holding for rope and jump by same button - bad idea.
Better make catch/release for rope by press jump button, not holding.
And how to remove previous  useless ropes?
Isn't easy catch needed rope if several ropes keep a close.


I think it might be intended that way, to make you rethink your usage of ropes. Makes it a bit more challenging, which I personally enjoy.

(1 edit) (+1)

There are a lot of control "features" that I think were not good decision. In the full feature version I am working on, the control are completely different.

... and there is a button to remove ropes ;)

Maybe try catch rope by default, when player NOT hold jump.
And release rope when pressing jump button.
Need try several variants, by words difficult says what variant better.


When is the next update for this game going to come out? I'd really enjoy having a new area (which is what I assume you are creating) This is one of the most enjoyable games i've played. Keep up the great content!


Hey, thanks for reaching out!
I think it's time to post another DevLog on this game and explain a bit what my plans are!


Nice game! Good job for everyone!



I finish the game for 3 times and I think I will finish again anyway the game is very fun pls can u make a update the game is too short


Hey, thanks for reaching out!

Bottomless, unlike me, who has ridiculous amounts of cake.


Hey thanks for the cool video!

No problem! It's really fun! ;{D

Really liked the rope mechanic, how u made it?

Thanks, it's made with rigidbodies and joints

can't open the mac app

Hey, Mac is very restrictive.

You could give this a try:



I think I can say the game is fun, but bloody difficult!

It is not even difficult, the controls are just not right enough for the game. I'm glad it's all fixed in the version I'm working on.

okay, nice

After playing this game for some time i just wanted to come here and say i really appreciate the effort you put into this game i think it is super fun to play 

I enjoyed this (after raging a bit). When the controls work it feels challenging but smooth, which really is a lot of fun. However, too often things feel slippery. I encountered one glitch where the rope went completely haywire (vibrating all over the place really fast), but most of the time the problems were with grabbing a ledge or climbing a wall. I think it could have been improved in some of these ways:

1. Allowing the player to 'restart' without either exiting to the main menu and reloading the game or dying. 
2. Allowing us to take down a rope if we missed our shot.
3. Making climbing walls more consistent. 
4. Allowing the player to jump from the rope, not just from the wall.
5. Preventing pressing down repeatedly on the joystick (or selecting "continue" on the death screen) from refreshing the animation only at the end of which you move down to start the level (or continue/respawn).

(1 edit)

I have also noticed that at times if you're climbing the rope up to a ledge, and your character isn't able to grab the ledge (for no apparent reason), then sometimes you can get stuck on the rope, unable to descend, unable to do anything except fall to your death. I also found, while I was trying to improve my time on normal mode, that you can be completely immobilized (unable to move at all, no matter what you try to do to get out of it) if your character simultaneously tries to climb down a rope and climb down a wall. That's very frustrating and should be fixed. The timing for the jump (if you're jumping from one platform immediately after landing) is a little too tight - a bit more generosity here would make the game feel a lot more responsive.

One thing I will say for it is that it's addicting though. There's something about it which keeps me coming back. After having glitches ruin my best runs, though, I'll be put off for a while. You have something here, but you need to refine it.
