Very nice game! The audio tune is very catchy. I wish there would be more levels. The background story is somewhat wacky.

Took a while to start with only a white screen to show me, loading bar would be nice. But otherwise amazing stuff! Lovely little robot! Samples and music were next to perfect!

Very Reminiscent of terraria, one of my favorite games...
I enjoyed playing it... there is not a lot of innovation, but the gameplay is there, and the graphics are charming, I loved it.

REALLY GOOD. I only wish there were a way to destroy enemies. I feel like I'm looting the first stage from Ghosts N Goblins.

It is the best game on this jam I played so far. Well done ! The music is well composed and catchy, the graphics are great and it matches to the theme.
Big up !

Great style; the music was quite catchy!
I liked the idea behind the gameplay, but found it a little difficult for me. Looks like my necrobot will never be human ...

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.
