    I really like the graphics and the style. :)

    Very neat visual design. Naturally, these games get pretty frantic, but man breaking those guys into pieces was satisfying!

    Great visual design. Good feeling on destroying the moth bots. Controls were a bit difficult for me, maybe a tad too fast.

    85 seconds, 13 energy cells.

    Incredible combination of audio and visual. Loved this.

    Really good! One of my favorites in terms of style and mood, and a really nice idea. Great job.

    The gameplay is great. Though the blinking light makes my eyes uncomfortable...

    Very very cool action game. The lighting is perfect.

    Really nice game - beautiful graphics and audio. I like the way that as the light starts going out it builds that hectic "oh crap" intensity. Nicely done!

    Good game, *really* good visual design. I love how the shadows give you so more idea of what the enemies look like than what you can actually see of them.

    124 seconds, 40 cells on first try. Wicked graphics and insane concentration requirement! :DD

    Holy cow. This is like the essence of survival horror condensed into a one screen fragoff. I love it. A slightly better musical choice could make this insanely atmospheric and creepy.

    This is a very good idea. I'm a fan.

    Minimalist? Hm. Well, you really distilled this to its essence and got rid of the fluff. I'd say that's minimalist!

    This is pretty slick. Definitely one of my favorites so far!

    Great in general. I liked the fact that it was hard, and I couldn't help but die eventually. :<

    Holy wow-trousers that was fun!

    Looks amazing too, really good use of spooky lighting and it feels really out of control when the light goes out and there are huge shadows coming at you

    Fucking awesome!! Excelent art and gameplay. Congratz!

    May 6, 2013 @ 7:45am

    Really pretty, excellent visual design for 48 hours. Entries like these make me kick myself for not spending more time doing speed-rigging.

    This was really visually impressive and interesting, the controls however seemed to lag and not respond leaving me charging off in one direction when I tried to turn and attack one of the mothbots.

    Awesome. Best visual style and mood I've seen in the 200 games I've played!

    Amazing lighting. I liked how breaking the guys added to the difficulty due to the shadows.

    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.

    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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
