Thank you for trying it :D

I'm hearing that the ring toss level is too difficult, so I might tone it down a bit later on.

Hey thanks :D

For anyone who tried it and thought the ring toss level was too difficult I've made it slightly easier.

A nice mix of the funny and the melancholic, interesting and punny take on the theme, and the audiovisuals are pretty cute. Good job!

Very nice game. The last part of each minigame was pretty hard, though.

Enjoyable mini games. Lot of effort went into making up the story and all the little details. Music was very good too! Awesome job :D

Really cute game. I seem to remember the first stage music from something, though.

zkenshin says ...
Dec 18, 2013 @ 8:51pm

Very cute, loved the story.
Hitting R on the second level seems to skip all the people though, and I get put through to level three.
Nice job, though (:

Thanks everyone, I'm really glad to see people are enjoying it :)

Zkenshin : Oops... that'd be me forgetting to remove some test code! :S

What a great concept (love the backstory)! The music is really fab too. I felt bad when I lost. :c

That was great. A lot of content, variation, sound and polish.

I like this game a lot. It's like wario ware with a back story. But it is quite hard.
The story is very nice and heartwarming.
The graphics are awesome, the music is adorable. Also the sounds are great.
Great job, it was really fun to play.

Awwh! Amazing game, and best use of theme I've seen! It took me a bit longer than it should have to figure out exactly what I was meant to be doing and when (on day 3 mainly) but I got through. Heartfelt! And lol at that guy with the ultra squished head, hah. I had to award you all 4-5/5's, and it's very rare that someone gets a 5/5 on anything from me, or that someone gets something in both 'mood' and 'humour'. Great job!

Well done, day 3 took me a while to complete. I really liked the story.

One of the best entries so far! Keep up the good work :)

I like the music. Real sadness ensues when you lose :(

Nice entry. I kept failing on the strength test level so an immediate retry key would be good. Once you've read the game over screen, you don't read it again and you have to wait for the fade in/out. Music was really good! Well done. :)

Dec 23, 2013 @ 3:34am

Much fun :P Great little game, it's funny and cute, made me smile :)

I love your game! I really wanted the bats to succeed and stay together ^^" The story is superb and heartbreaking if you lose.

Balancing was okay, I failed the second and third day once each, so I would not say it was too difficult.

The scrolling speed of the credits is a bit too slow for my taste

It's taken me far too long to get around to playing this, but I'm glad I did! I love the chirpy, upbeat feel and the music reminds me of the Megadrive/Genesis synth chip in the best possible way. Brilliant reversal of the idea of winning a prize, that also fits the theme with a pun to boot. Difficulty ramps up nicely, also.

If I was to add anything, it would be a selection to be Jaden or John. It wouldn't do anything, but you could claim DOUBLE the playable characters =P

Really cool game, I especially liked the music!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
