The game was awesome, until I couldn't get past the second level. I played for around 10 minutes and never scored a hit after the first level.

Wonderfully polished! Great artwork, gameplay, graphics, etc.
I haven't quite figured out any particular strategy to playing though...

Very fun, although since rocks tend to be a lot more effective than a good chunk of the other weapons, it feels a bit useless to try to move on.

Excellent game, so polished! Doesn't looks like a 2-days game!
I liked to play, although throwing rocks and eggs was hard to hit.
Oh, and I found the Drop button. Sorry. =P

Such a polished entry for the 48-hour compo, really impressive. The gameplay items could maybe be balanced a bit better given more time, but it was really fun to watch the outcome. A slightly sad but excellent ending too...

Poor squirrel! Nooo!
Great job! The art was great and with more depth (more levels/objects/etc), this would do well on touch devices! :D

Awesome! I really wanted a strategy but ended up just using lots of rocks.

Fun stuff, could do with a bit of balancing, but awesome nonetheless.

Quite cool, the art was nice and the gameplay was great. I didn't really know what the goat is relevant to the plotline, but whatever. The ending was great.

Just stellar. Polished, as everyone has pointed out, but also just good game design, a refreshingly original concept and setting, and the potential here for greater things. I'm a fan.

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.
