What is it?

Fail Fail Succeed is 2D puzzle platformer, inspired by my experiences with coping, stress and mental health.

Step into the role of an anonymous individual, who just wants to make it back to their dog. 

At your disposal are orbs that change what you leave behind when you fail.

Fail, fail and fail again. Keep trying and you will be rewarded with some sweet sweet puppy love!

Current Development

This game was originally made over a weekend, as a fun little challenge. Realizing how much I got out of it, both in the form of reflection and experience, I decided to continue polishing it up.

The page will continously be updated with new builds as they come - try them out!

Known Bugs

There's an issue with the build where the audio won't play. Working on fixing it!

  • LDtk to Unity Importer
  • Unity
  • Procreate

The game is currently in an alpha state - there are issues and there are things missing. I will update the build, but keep the original one as a reference point for how far I've gotten in the end.

Also can't spell for the life of me - thank you for your understanding!

really cool game, well deserved win in level design ;)


Lovely little game! I enjoyed how the design encouraged rather creative solutions to the puzzles at times, very fun and although a small game it has plenty of personality. Well deserved award, good job Martin!!!!! 


Great work with this game! Lovely core mechanic!!


This was an engaging and fun little puzzle platformer! The mechanics were intuitive and easy to understand and the increased complexity of the later levels felt natural. I enjoyed the blocky retro look of the game and complemented its style of it well. I would love to see more of this game, especially with the one late mechanic introduced for one level that could be explored further.

This game definitely earned the best level design award! Great stuff!

Thank you for your kind words! I hope you'll stick around, as your wishes will be met: production of this game is far from over and there will be more to come down the line!
