That music. Those sound effects. Fantastic.

I also loved the shotgun pumping mechanic. I don't think I've ever see that in a game, and it felt good. I think it's a perfect fit for a gritty zombie shooter.

I couldn't get the gun to fire even after pumping. Overall, very funny and interesting premise. Good work!

Great work on the zombie groans. I had the same problem. Pumped and pumped but could never shoot (oh, that sounds so wrong). I found the doo doo I wanted, but no bullets.

Next LD I want to see "Desert Rust: Pat Chenko vs. m'fn Chuck Norris" :)

So to fire the weapon you have to:

1) Load shells individually by hitting the 'R' key 8 times
2) HOLD space to chamber a shell, not just tap it
3) LMB to fire, goto #2 until empty, then goto #1

It's pretty tricky...

The visual effect of each individual shotgun pellet hitting a zombie ghost was very impressive and satisfying.

I think the pumping requiring the held keypress is causing the problems. But yeah, just hold the pump!

The sounds are fantastic!!! I laughed so hard!!!
I like the tricky way to shoot.. It give me sensation of how difficult is survive in the game! Good concept!

Really nice, up to point of combat then death/death. No gun fire at least no bullet and no zombie death. Like the "tension music" !

Cool game, but I'd like some more feedback on shooting!

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.
