I've read your blog entry earlier, so I bookmarked it - and boy, am I glad I did it. The gameplay is fun, but where the game really shines is polish - everything looks so neat and is well tied together. (And I like the story of the dragon who didn't want to be a villain. :D )

PS: Dragons are awesome!

Oh, and I forgot: Please rate a few entries! The more you rate, the more people see your game - and I think it deserves to be seen!

The story and dragon is cute :)
I like the different way you define the villain.
Good job!

@Wuhao Thanks for your comment! I'll play your game soon!

@Tobias Wehrum: It's my honor to be bookmarked by you, because I know the game didn't look good at the early stage. Thanks for you suggestions, I'll start rating games soon!

I didn't always get enough time to read the dialogue. Other than that this is pretty great!

Dec 19, 2012 @ 1:51pm

The text bubbles would always disappear too quickly and I had no idea what was going on, but the physics based gameplay was pretty fun.

Dec 20, 2012 @ 12:50am

That was funny !
After a few level, I got chain-stunned, I couldn't do anything...

Dec 20, 2012 @ 4:55am

@JaJ @bradleypollard: I've changed dialog speed a little bit, now it will be easier to read the dialog. I hope it will not break the rules since it's a bug fix.

@ReveLorenfield You are right, lv4 is quite difficult. I suggest focusing on cleaning the nearby area.

The dragon looks great! I like the hand drawn characters and somehow it works with the 3D.
Very original take on the theme and funny.
I think there are some bugs, sometimes I got hit but there was nothing near me?

I was confused at first, because it really seemed like the game was going to be about spotting the fake, and I feel that would have been a really great idea and a unique game. So I was a bit disappointed at the actual gameplay.

One thing's for sure, though: you did an amazing job with the presentation. Really polished stuff, congrats.

Nice job with the 3D camera panning stuff it really ups the mood. Dialogs were a bit cheesy at times but the game itself was fun to play.

Why do you think all dragons are evil? They're awesome! Nice game though.

Jan 4, 2013 @ 10:16am

@azurenimbus I've planned to add a "spotting the fake" part before destroying the fake. You must find the fake by the character's description. e.g. "A stone age television", "A Qing dynasty vase"... But I failed to implement it in the time limit.

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.
