"A life form that only lives for 10 Seconds" A.Rowntree BSc

OK Controls and basic info on main screen, the rest you have to work out as you go, but it's all basic stuff so have fun.

Couple of minor "features" e.g. camera tracking to egg, but this will have to do for now.

Made with Unity3d

Very cool concept, especially love the egg hatching at the start and skeleton of death :)

Aww the wee thing is so cute! Great job on the graphics! The sound is a bit annoying though. Still, points for the effort of actually putting sound in (unlike me heh).

Interesting idea. It would be nice to have more stuff to do like maybe something that could extend your lifespan a bit. These little guys move fast, but I guess I'd move fast too if I only had a 10-second lifespan.

The title screen was nice. The game itself was a bunch of fun just running around.

Nice concept! Moving around is maybe a bit hard.

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.
