That game is all about the groove hiding underneath the surface!

Help Jichael Mackson to collect all the deathcoins and face the funky zombies of apocalypse!

Thanks to Swan and Joel who make all the illustration. I'm so sad that we couldn't finish the level design and put all the fancy props Swan did, as well as all the creepy sounds me made with my microphone!

BTW I hope you all enjoy this game!

All illustration and music was made by us!

Quirky game :D Sometimes I had troubles with the dance battles registering my arrows and I never got a score at the end, but I enjoyed walking around collecting coins!

I also noticed it... how sad.... with a few more hours of programming and level design that game could be a freaking hit, don't you think?

Good time! The art and effects were top-notch. I noticed some issues with z-ordering of coins and had a lot of trouble getting arrows to register. I've played DDR for years, so maybe I'm making the wrong assumptions about how to play that section.

Good idea, but I'm not totally sure I see how it fits the theme.

Interesting concept and great looks, but seems a bit buggy. The input was not registered every time, and once in the dance-off I didn't get any arrows. Other than that, it's an interesting start, keep working on it. :)

Cool graphics. The levels could use some work.

I really like the art. It took me a couple tries to figure out how to win a dance off and had a couple issues with registering keys but it's a fun (and funny) little game :)

Haha was trying to avoid the zombies, thinking that they would insta-kill me. Was not expecting to dance off with them.

Such great visuals, loved the dancing and the little box Jichael Mackson, very cute. Such a polished game.

Great idea, but dance battle bugs screw up a big part of a game.

Funny concept, you guys should build this out more!

Like the use graphics and the audio is decent. A bit too slow and not much of a game really.

Nice job, I think the same that other players: Very polished and with some time more, this game would be ten times better. About the arrows in the minigame of dancing, the right arrow(D) doesn't work to register.

Well guys! Thanks for all of your comments!! It goes directly to my heart! I know the game is really buggy and it kills me because I was freaking tired last night and couldn't see my hands anymore and wasn't able to type any more lines of codes... sorry about that! <3

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.
