Good use of the theme and a very nice idea overall.

The mazes were fairly easy, but they made me think/plan a little so I enjoyed it. Good work.

Pretty cool little puzzle. A bit short, but I like how each level seems thoughtfully made. Some background music would be nice, but otherwise everything comes together fairly well.

Seems interesting, but I couldn't get into it.

Really enjoyed the game! The levels were pretty well thought through and definitely took me a couple tries to beat them.

Fun game. The concept could have been explained a bit better but when you can get into it it's fun.
It's really hard to see what direction the hills are facing and it screwed me over quite a bit D:

Good, fun game - great take on the theme. I didn't find the mazes quite so easy as others seem to have.

Doesn't load the first time. WASD isn't cool for French players like me :( Looks cool though

Sorry Cawrtz, I've added support for the extra keys so ZSQD is now supported.

It was clever. I'm picky, but would have liked to be able to use the arrow keys! I think the cliffs should be more distinct and also which species can be bribed by which item.

A very fun and unique little puzzle game. It was short and sweet. Art suited it, items were fairly funny, audio wasn't annoying (but would have liked some music).

My only complaint is that (as funny as they were) I had no time to remember which item went to which gaurdian. It would have been better to just display the picture of the gaurdian the gift goes to at the bottom, so I can figure out what I have left with a glance.

Fun puzzle game. Last level seemed too complex to comprehend at first, but after going through a second time it all made sense. Nicely executed.

Bribery! Excellent concept, main character is adorable! Good work

Solid well-rounded entry. I didn't quite get the connection between the items in the inventory and the different characters so I ended up just using a trial and error strategy, and planning a route which would hit the fewest blockers. More levels would be cool. Well done. :)

Nice! A bit short, but still had me thinking.

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.
