Very strange... I'm noticing severe performance issues in the segment before I pick up the gun, but not after. :/

Awesome idea. I like how they all just sit there and stare at you as you gun them down/hug them.

Wow, this is really good! It's a big strange, but it's well done. I like the fact that it's actually a complete game. To some, "Minimalism" means no game components. This kept things simple while making it an interesting video game.

Ran too slow on my machine (cheap new laptop)

This is hat-eating bizarre, and I love it! My top score 64,850! Longest combo: 20! Take that insanity! :)

I finally get to blow things up! Very polished for 48-hour compo.

I have literally no clue what is going on, but I managed to find the edge of the world, and jump off. Did I win? I certainly FEEL like a winner.

Nice atmosphere, very bizarre. Once I figured out what the pickups do and found the "field of plenty" I was able to get over 2 million points, and I know there's more optimal routes than what I did. Good job on this.

Nice job! Loved blasting the eyeballs :)

this is fantastic! The graphics are amazing! The mouse does seem to be very sensitive with aiming, but that's probably an issue on my end.

it liked the landscape and the "you need a hug" sample. for an ex-quake3 player it was hilarious :)

It's always fun to jump off the edge in a 3d world :P
That aside I like this game. I like the look of the world and the music fits it perfectly. At times I wished I could walk a bit faster but that is the only downside in my opinion.

I liked how the visuals change when you pick up a gun. The graphics overall were really well done and added to the strangeness/mood of the game.

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.
