This was so much fun I played it with my friend for half an hour just wish you could tell each other apart

Hmm....Multiplayer is a fantastic feature. Client-to-client is a little nervewracking because I probably won't be able to find a server for this in 1-3 weeks...but nicely executed!

Great idea, the 10 seconds is kind of short though. You should have made each second longer. (Yeah then its not technically 10 seconds but it makes the game more bearable.)

That was a lot of fun!
Cool idea, nice execution.
I only wish bullets traveled faster...

Thanks tinykidtoo and kayupla

Every one can create a server and the server created will be visible at the start screen of the game for everyone.

Really nice L&F. Confusing that the players legs are always going and you can't tell players apart. I had trouble with the weapons on my trackpad. But the graphics are everything! I want to read the writeup where you explain how you did the client-server bit :)

I really like this idea!!!!!! I wish i could play this in a full server. it lacks of visual feedback, you don't know if you win or someoneelse did! Really cool.

Interesting game. I like the controls and movement but it's hard to get a game going.

fun, I love the feeling of moving around, but kind of hard to actually shoot someone in 10 seconds.

Cool, needs a public server.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 11:28am

@Pickens Done :)

Looks great, but the gameplay is questionable without having s.o. to play with.
Might work with a full server though.

a multiplayer game in a jam! well done on finishing, good level design, fun gameplay and great use of theme 5/5 =D

Aug 28, 2013 @ 11:16am

not bad at all

Neat graphics. Well done

Wow I'm impressed guys but the gameplay becomes kinda frustrating if there aren't many players and you keep dying and waiting at the screen haha. I'll try and rejoin when there's more people in! Great achievement!

Aug 29, 2013 @ 3:35am

amazing! a multiplayer game is a accomplishment for sure!

please, add bots for a single-player option ;-)

(sorry my bad english xD)

Aug 29, 2013 @ 6:19am

@ramoncb if we do a post compo version, we will add bots :)
@Nick Weihs, indeed, that's not very funny when you are only one or two on the maps

Aug 30, 2013 @ 12:30am

the idea seems really promising but I could not manage to start playing, and as other said, a public server would be neat !

Aug 30, 2013 @ 5:53am

@Fgielown We already have a public server, but it had a problem during the night, now everything is back to normal.

Seems like the control are smooth, but no one to play against.

Aug 30, 2013 @ 8:09am

That's can be great but no one is playing vs me x(

Aug 30, 2013 @ 9:59am

Would've liked to make a full judgement but nobody was on the server :/
Loved the graphical style and music though.

It doesn't start, I click on Join Server but it's stuck with the screen where the instructions float around... But I can already tell, that I like the graphics and the sounds, and probably the gameplay :D

H-Bomb says ...
Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:41am

Impressive! I think a different time limit would work better though... maybe 20 or 30 seconds. I can't really tell for sure because I was playing alone. ^^

Nicely done, very polished graphics and smooth movement. Also making it multiplayer is an awesome achievement for a LD. Congrats!

Jod says ...

Loved the concept, and your game runs super smooth! Sadly, there was no one to play with, which is a risk when making something multiplayer. Making a version which had some targets to shoot at when there are no other players might have been an alternative.

Great job, except I felt 10 seconds of life was a bit short, especially when there are not many people in the game. But man, amazing work otherwise!

SbstnC says ...

Awesome graphics. It's too bad server was always empty when I tried to connect, but still it seemed pretty good. I'm impressed. While being blue I had the impression of running with a blue vibrator in front of me, but I suppose I'm sick in me head. I'll come back hoping to find people on the server.

Rounds are unplayably short even when other players happen to join in. Should be something like "you have 6 HP that each lasts 10 seconds, one shot gives/loses a HP"

Orni says ...

brilliant idea :)
loved it

Did not like the use of the 10 Seconds ;[ When the person is on the top and I spawn on the bottom I can't even reach them in 10 seconds. Other than that, I like the visuals and the audio.

Sep 13, 2013 @ 6:01pm

By far the BEST LD#27 entry I've seen so far. I LOVED it, except the time limit REALLY seemed less than 10 seconds. PLEASE extend it as far as it can possibly go within the contest rules.

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.
