Nice game. Took me awhile to figure out how to unload the first gift.

Would be nice with a post compo version where you can do various mean things in houses like steal from fridges and open taps and leave windows open and so on for extra points

I really love the idea!
Too bad the game is very glitchy (but I'm sure it can be fixed easily)

What a weird game. The art was weird but kinda fun. At first it took me a while to figure out what to do, but then it was kinda weird/fun-ish.
I liked the graphics a lot and the overal idea. It was though a bit hard to navigate properly. Good work though =)

Cute game. Quite some bugs though when driving around with the sled, like leaving the sled and being stuck into a wall, or being abe to drive on top of a house. All in all, nice game ! :)

Game got slower for me as it ran for longer. Maybe as more cops spawned?

I really like you guys who interpreted the theme as "Lotsa crime. Gotta crime some crime."

Nice idea. A second key or even automatic loading of presents to the sled and unloading to the cave would be cool, because it was a bit annoying to be forced to enter and exit the sled with each present. A bit more polish and bug-hunting and the game will be really nice. Good job.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
