Cool submission! Not particularly villainous, but I liked the overall design and feel.

Thanks, this is my first Ludum Dare and I went with the first idea that I thought of.

Pretty good game. Not that evil, and could certainly use a slightly smaller screen height (lost myself off the bottom of my 1366x768 laptop screen)

Not really on theme but other than that, it has a nice sense of speed.

+1 for goats, +1000 for velociraptors!
Get kinda repetitive after a while

1- PLEASE don't name your file "LD25.jar". This is the fourth java entry that I rated that was simply named "LD25.jar".

2- I couldn't run your entry. Either the web version or the standalone version didn't work. Windows 8 with latest java.

Didn't really have the chase element that was promised until you reached the raptors. Not sure I understood why there were raptors, but I liked them. Liked that you had multiple environments. Largely failed on the theme and the music gets a bit grating after a while.

The idea is not bad, i see the goats but not the theme "you are the villain". It miss a button to stop the music.

Hahaha this game is great, it made me laugh out loud quite a few times, which is a surefire way to make me love your game. Was it possible to get past the raptors?

By the way, if you're looking for a better host than dropbox, you might check out the free Java hosting I offer at I'd love to see this game there!

Won't work on my Windows PC. :/ Comes up with an error message.

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.
