Jumping is a type of move that launches the player into the air, similar to real life. Cannibals can also jump, they jump much further than the player and use it as an attack.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player can move around in the air whilst jumping. This can help the player navigate to where they want to land. Jumping doesn't use any stamina though it may burn calories. Jumping is required for a number of certain actions:
