It's very cute, but a little buggy with room transitions and text overlapping. Animations would really bring this entry to life I think :)

Cute game, you should definitely add some animations, it would absolutely change the feeling of the game. A few bugs when I died, the text is glitching. Telling a story was a nice idea.

Thank you guys~ I'll add animations and fix the bug later. Your suggestion means so much to me :)

Love the music, graphics and handwriting text. They helped creating a great mood for the game. I think it's really a good start for your 1st jam. Hope to see more entries from you in the future!
I failed to get to the 10th seconds. My inside was around me, but the broken heart never appeared. I don't know if I was playing in the wrong way.

This story had a very sad mood, i liked it. Almost made me cry. The main character were so cute! I would like animations to this story to make it complete.

This was somewhat sad but I liked it, the main character design was cute.

Quite buggy, so I'm having a hard time going to the end.

But I like the concept, even though the "10 seconds" are a bit extended :) the graphics and the sound are cute.

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 ( 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.
