    Interesting idea but lacks motivationnals. Maybe introducing some more fun in hurting the hero could have made it. Good prod anyway. thx.

    Perfect, the best game I've played this whole LD, just a few bugs which were a shame:

    - I seemed to be able to get stuck in the vertical chainsaws causing insta-death, not sure if this was a bug or not.

    - The text bubbles sorted behind the walls.

    Thanks GameXcore , we will try to fix the bugs.

    About the feeling, w give the player, the choice to try to reach the goal by hurting the Avatar, or let him go safe a get the Game over
    It's not a simple question about: are you sadist or not
    It's a question about, what sacrifices do you can do, to reach you objectifs?
    Thank you all ^_^

    Nice entry, like the arts and the sounds remember me worms \o/ :D (talking about being sadisctic, what hell we make this little worms live!)

    Very good idea. At first, I thought I would play this like any platformer and then go back to get hurt enough to pass the door, but the level design was clever enough to forbid me to do that. I think this platformer could be turned into a great puzzle with more, harder levers.
    The little voice is very cute ^w^

    Dec 23, 2012 @ 11:16am

    Excellent idea ! Funny and disturbing at the same time.
    Loved the graphics and the sound FX too (OMG the poor creature voice)

    I can't see why it fits the theme. Gameplay and graphics are both good.

    Great audio and visuals. Clever idea. The instant game over isn't necessary. I enjoyed the game, good job!

    Amazing art style and animation. PERFECT theme interpretation by making the player the villain and not the character itself. Great game over screen with that being the victory of the avatar and the loss of the player. Wonderful job all around!

    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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
