Notchified Cat

by Team Techno - Jam Entry

Theme link: You only get one life

Notchified Cat is a game where you play as a human sized cat that walks on two feet, who has to jump over Notches and navigate though the map to get the goblet at the end of the map to win. Just don't collide with Notch!

The game is more difficult than you may first think, but it is possible! :)

Also, a special thanks to Markus Persson for giving us a clip of his voice to use in the menu of the game!


A -> Go Left
D -> Go Right
W -> Jump (you can double jump)


The game was going to be multi-arch but due to an unfortunate set of circumstances the game can only be released for Windows.

Found it impossible until I accidently pressed the jump button twice and double jumped. Maybe you could mention this in your notes?
"Welcome to notchified cat" got a bit annoying after the 30th time so I made another mini game to see how quickly I could press r to replay. Not a bad platformer overall.

Cool game! Graphics were simple but good! Mechanics were fluid most of times but jumping and collision with notch are a little bit bad. I like it! Goo job.

If you have time, rate my game too! I would really appreciate it :)

Very catchy music. The premise of the game is certainly the strangest I've seen so far. Despite that, it is a serviceable platformer. The complete restart from the beginning of the game was a bit annoying considering the precision of the jumps needed, but I suppose that is the theme's fault.

Cats + Notch = All the internets. Cool game, the controls were really responsive and the platforming was properly challenging. Good work on this and congratulations on getting the Notch cameo!

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.
