Loved the squishy sound. Really easy to beat since you just re-spawn, but I still found it an enjoyable game!

He, I managed to set a city in chaos, then I got stuck in the mountains. Which is right, we all now that Cthulhu came fro the depths of the ocean X)

The most interesting part is eating them all lol.
A bug: I was stuck in mountains when I bulked up.

The squish squish was hilarious. Surprised not more people delved into the Cthulu mythos.

After destroying 2 cities, the game goes too easy. But eating people is a nice idea.

Nice game. It was fun to squash all those towns. A little more challenge would have been nice.

Dec 24, 2012 @ 12:05am

Easy but fun! You got me smiling the whole game. Perhaps having cities return to "peace" if left alone for enough time would add a bit more of challenge. Variety of enemies or actions to carry (besides spreading chaos) may make a nice update. Gratz on a fun little entry!

Crushing people and cities was fun, could expand on that.

Dec 30, 2012 @ 4:45pm

Nice if a bit unpolished.

squishing people rapidly was fun, I managed to get stuck to a mountain when the character grew.

Cthulhu... the ultimate evil... I made a Cthulhu game in LD22, so I love the theme. gameplay is very interesting. Congrats.

Fun little idea but needed a little more work though. Heroes were easily beaten and Cthulhu grew rather fast. But then again, it's Cthulhu, of course he slays heroes and grows fast. It would have been nice to actually destroy cities after the chaos state.

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.
