I dig it! Love the aesthetic - the snow falling is a great touch. My favorite is when the narrator dies of boredom

So much art, and so awesome! There's not much to the game itself, but it was still a pleasant and enjoyable experience for the short time it lasted.

Web link displays nothing for me, but I'm trying to play from ChromeOS so there's a good chance the issue is on my end. Figured I'd mention it just in case it isn't an issue with me. I'll try to play on Windows on another day.

I really love the graphics, and I really like that birdsound.
I especially like the overall mood of this game. gameplay wise there isn't much to do though.

I dunno what just happened, but I wouldn't trade it for the world

Dec 16, 2013 @ 4:56pm

I really liked the graphics and overall mood and feel! There wasn't much to play, but it was fun experience.

Sir, this is pretty damn funny! We need more punishment for player interactions ! Poor narrator... :D

Love it! I like the graphics and aesthetics in general. The annoying bird is really annoying! I miss a win condition.

Good stuff. Everything I could say you'd already expect, so in that sense I'd call it a success.

Gorgeous graphics :) So, is there a way to get some trousers?

SnoringFrog says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 9:56am

xD I loved this. Extremely simple, but it looks beautiful and was quite entertaining. The walking animation looked funny (but given the way the rest of the game went, it kinda worked), but the walking sound seemed out of place (to me it sounded like you were walking on wood even when outside). Other than that, I had no issues with the game.

Detocroix says ...
Dec 17, 2013 @ 11:59am

Will Edwards : Thank you! No pants! Trousers are banned from this world. You can notice both wagoner and bartender are both pantless too!

SnorinFrog : Thanks! I the walking sound actually is me knocking my table, so no surprise :D

Not a lot of gameplay, but really nice art, audio and overall mood! Also, the deaths were a bit predictable, but really funny nonetheless! Good job :D

Love the style, and the sound effects haha. Very polished art, reminded me of lemmings with the low-res style. Keep it up!

Dec 22, 2013 @ 2:50pm

The most amazing graphics. Top marks for Fun and Mood as well!

Really nice style

Dec 24, 2013 @ 8:18pm

Fun, funny game! I included it in my Ludum Dare Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

Love the art style! Wish there was more of an actual "game" to play, but that was kind of your point anyway. Still a really good game with great use of theme!

Very short, but good nonetheless. Death at every action was kind of weird but funny. The falling snow looked really cool. And how the inside if the house was shown, that was a nice touch. And of course, best game title ever.

Great graphics and audio! I like your entry very much. This could be an awesome game, it only needs more content.

Absolutely love this experience! Really accomplished pixel art, amusing text and great sounds - great work! I suppose more "to do" would have been nice

Dec 31, 2013 @ 2:19pm

Awesome pixel art and fun stories at each death! Good luck!

The art is so good in this - made me wish there was a little more to the gameplay. Also, That's the perfect walk cycle.

The graphics are great in this game! And well done sfx!

Jan 4, 2014 @ 4:18pm

I loved it ! The graphics are amazing, all the ending artwork are beautiful and funny ! I found the 7 ending, totally worth it. You made me laugh a lot ;) The sound was funny too, that annoying bird made me smile. Great work !

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.
