Save me from your dream

by LonelyTimeLord - Jam Entry

This is my very first LD entry and I was a bit too ambitious, and only just made the Jam deadline. There may be bugs in places, I wasn't able to test it all but hopefully you get the idea of the game from the levels I have made and enjoy it :D

Recommended minimum size: 1024 x 768
(Haven't been able to test OS/X and Linux myself, should work though)

Pretty neat game! Graphics were well done + level design was good. Some collision detection issues, but still a cool game!

A game about small underdog fish fighting sharks? You've got Good Taste, my friend.

Ran into some hit detection issues in the level where you get 3 batteries off the hop, and the fact that enemies don't move make it more akin to a puzzle game, but for a first timer I'd say this came together pretty well!

I like how it's like:"noooo saaaaavvvvvvvve mmmmmeeeee..."
while your watching the small fish get eaten before the level...
Didn't get how to use the pick though :(

Nice game, I both like and dislike the cutscene at the beginning of the level. It adds some tension, but it also feels like its' getting in the way of playing.

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.
