Oh my god, I loved this! Took me a bit to understand how to properly pet Mr Snugglebutt, but once I did I really enjoyed this. Very fun idea.

It took me the longest time to realise you needed to use the "loudness" (size) of the meows to work out where Mr Snugglebutt wanted to be stroked and get a heart! Really needed instructions. Once I had that down though I got defeated by the blue guy. Damn blue guy. I got to 10 hearts.

I pet the kitty and got a secret agent to walk the hall. I'm not sure I understand the controls for petting the kitty.

bradleypollard hit it on the head: the fact that i need to find the position-changing hotspot on the cat to make him purr should be better explained. otherwise the game is pretty damn neat.

When I finally figured it out, I can honestly say I enjoyed it.

Thanks for playing guys! I've watched a couple of my friends play too, and petting the cat is pretty non-intuitive. Better would be petting the cat the way Catz does it, with a meow box and sound that scaled in size continually as you got closer. I'd also not put the first hotspot not so far off to the side.

I love the feedback - you guys rock!

It took me a little bit to figure out, but when I did, it was great! I was only able to score 8 hearts... Great 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.
