***Please tell me now if the language is too much, I can change it easier now than later when there's more of it!***

You're an enchanted sword, which is cool and junk, you can fly and stuff.

You're an ***hole.

You HATE getting dirty.

The lucky meatbag that picks you up becomes immortal, but cannot let go.

Sword follows the mouse, meatbag follows the sword, enemies cause damage by making you all bloody,  can be avoided by using handy meatflail attachment. (joints extension, sword rotates when mouse is held, unlucky meatbag gets thrown around)

Collect wax to increase dirt resistance (lifeup), collect armour pieces to increase meatflail damage.

Apparently in the deepest darkest most dangerous dungeon in the world there's a lady meatbag with a shiny hat, a prinsomething, there's also a nice plinth where you could probably lie undisturbed and looking shiny forever.  Mutual quest ho.

Progress, got a cool looking sword and a growing understanding of how joints work. (two arms and a torso so far but tweaking settings because it looks poopy.)

You might be doing this already, but you could have a separate "arm" actor that is jointed at the handle and the shoulder of the meatball. That way would give a more fluid dragging feel.

Spent about 6 hours so far messing with joints, I think I have a good handle on what works, just producing some "art".

Hi MyChair,

Nice process. I had fun with the physics and made me smile on the ragdoll.
Hope the extra day brings you what you are looking for!

Best regards from

I'm out!

Never going to get this where I want in time, and won't be able to compete with the team built jam entries anyways.

But, might take a few days and make this a second (first posted) entry in the stencyljam :).

Thanks Irock! As a concept demo it works well, really loving the joints extension and the things it can do :).
