Pretty tongue-in-cheek. I like the gimmick of using objects as shields before eating/throwing them, that's something you could've explored more. I felt like you should add more pressure to take this game to its full potential, since dodging projectiles is a pretty shallow way of interaction.

Oh, and it's weird how the people stay alive and blinking for a while after they're dead.

A very well rounded game. The audio is good, the graphics too, and hey, it's fun! Good work.

Ha, awesome.. Really good work. Although the graphics were a little rough, the animation was top class and everything fit the theme perfectly. Definitely one of my favorites!

Nice! The controls are very smooth and I love the random remarks that the different characters shout out when you devour them. I keep dying on the second level though, when the three army dudes in a row appear. There seems to be little point to eating people, though?

super funny! couldn't beat the hunter dude, even by throwing barrels at him. hilariously executed concept though.

Very nice! :) A little hard though. On the first level you just need to get the first man and run but on the second level there are rocket launchers.

There was some cases when I got a person in hand and still got hit buy the cops.

Rex is cute. Funny sound effects and basic but consistent play. Even a boss character who sounded miffed about being beaten.

That was pretty fun. Last level was hard. Maybe I'll beat it later. Good job!

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.
