Old MacDonald vs Zombiesby rogueNoodle - Jam Entry
*** BUG NOTICE ***
For some reason, sometimes zombies won't appear at the start of a game - if nothing starts popping out of the ground when you're playing, please reload the page. Sorry about that!
Old MacDonald had a farm. And on that farm he had a cow. Also, zombies.
Help Old MacDonald keep his cow happy by cleaning up after her, and in return, she'll be his best friend AND best defense against the growing zombie horde.
It's a story about friendship, cooperation and mutual respect. Also, zombies.
HOW TO PLAY
- You are Old MacDonald: move around the field using the ARROW KEYS
- While avoiding zombies, CLEAN UP after your cow. This will make her happy (you'll see a HEART over her head)
- When she's happy, whistle using the SPACEBAR and she'll run across the field to meet you, mowing down any zombies in her path
- And of course, score a lot of points
If the music gets a little grating, you can toggle it on and off with the 'M'. The same can be done for the sound fx using the 'S' key.
Hoping to upload some downloadable builds (including a completely untested Linux version) in the near future (most likely over the weekend).

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.
