installer? you shouldn't force people to actually install your game :/ (i'm saying that because it's your first LD). because ppl don't want to install anything, especially when they will be judging a heck lot of games. if you can, provide a direct executable (not an installer) as soon as possible

Overall quite a good first entry, however it would much better to have the same sound effects that you have in the slender game!

Good Game! The installer is annoying though, and the music was a bit painful to the ears. And once you figure out how to quickly herd children into corners, you get heaps of kids.

Avoid installers (there's an option in GM to do that) in the future. Love darkness and pixel graphics but the music, as @odrega said, is a bit annoying.

Im sorry i use GM studio, and i dont think that it includes a option just for a .exe file :(

and as for the music, i thought that i was not allowed to use the original soundtrack... And i was running out of time

otherwise im verry glad that you liked it!! :D

Killing kids is bad so I made circles like I was ice-skating. :)

Once you figure out you can teleport, it's fun. Nice music.

Was a bit short, didn't have much in the way of progression but a neat little submission :D.

A great concept, though there's a few problems. The music was good quality, but I felt it ruined the mood; something scarier or more disturbing would have been better. The teleporting was rather glitchy too, refusing to work at times.

Take on theme on reference was good, a bit incomplete.

I played a few times, my best score was 16. The music was a bit annoying, but overall a solid entry!

The music is more appropriate for an YTMND page, not for a scary setting (at all) For this simple type of game, I was expecting more for a Jam entry.

The music is nice, but imho doesn't really fit this game.

Interesting idea and has a lot of potential. Music doesn't seem to fit the game. Congrats for making a game.

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.
