A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Potion Commotion: A short 3D Platformer.

You drank more and more magic potions without realizing it was making the world worse. Now it's out of control and you must find the crystals to get the rampant magic under control. Watch out for the cute monsters that want to inconvenience you as you run, jump, and bounce your way around this cute little world!

I can’t even start this game.

Linux does not work like windows. one of these differences is, that 64-bit linux can Not run 32-bit linux programs.

Please publish a 64-bit linux version of the game so i can play the game.


Very cute! I didn't like the gamepad mappings to the bumpers so much, but I loved the world and very forgiving obstacles :)



I liked your game. Hope you can add some more levels and mechanics soon!

PS. In case anybody has issues with the Linux version: In Ubuntu I had to do:

sudo apt install libgtk2.0-0:i386 lib32stdc++6
