Fun (and disturbing) idea! It's a little buggy, once you get down to the very bottom.

I love the way the dog looks, especially while he/she runs.

Fun ... but with some "collision" bug.

Holy crap! Not spoiling but I really did not see that comming!
Maybe there are some collision problems and the bone permanence, but man, the concept, art and music are just great! Good work guys!

Really nice game, I felt like just enjoying the sun and not digging at all but then the bombs came anyway :(

Love the dog animations.

It lags a bit sometimes with all the death and destruction and stuff, but it's fun!! :P

That dog definitely has his priorities wrong - getting bones when the world is being destroyed. It's pretty cute even though it's dark! (I got 661.)

animations are awesome, and WTF NUKES!!!

Oh my god, why all the dog-and-bone-related games in this jam are so sad. Very addictive, though.

Poor little dog :(

But really nice dog-animation. And fun to play. Great work!

May 3, 2014 @ 1:07pm

dig, dig, dig.. boom WTF :)

:O I did not see that coming! Gets sluggish at the bottom, and it doesn't seem like you can win, but still very unique.

May 5, 2014 @ 11:31am

What a great game, the art work and dog animation make me want to keep playing. Wish the dog could dig a little faster though, found it hard to avoid bombs sometimes.

Very fun, except for the bomb they totally ruin my digging ;-)

Simple graphism but it's really working great.
Just a minus for the background music, too classic for me.

The dog is well animated and the graphics are nice. If it's a nice normal day, I don't know why there would be bombs dropping down but overall this is a good game and appealing in many ways.

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.
