Where do I begin? How can I thank you Ludum Dare? We at Givit Game Studios are still very young in the game development area. We are a South African based company and would like to bring game development more to south side of the world, although there are a lot of developers here in South Africa, we urge you to do more and develop more.

Our game was The Yellow Jacket Man, and the response was good. We are thinking of making the game a complete game and make it commercial. So we would like you guys to go play our game again and write in the comments if it is worthy to be a commercial game.

So thank you again Ludum Dare this was amazing.

If you hate rats or oily chicken from KFC or if you think you can betray cute penguins well then my weapons are for you. Introducing the Rat Shotgun, KFC Chicken Gun and the Penguin grenade.”

“…when I came back home I saw a lot of freakin bastards in my home. Is it a break in? Or are they looking for something specific? What ever they looking for I am going to kill them. I am the yellow jacket man.”
