Very cute silly game. I could easily see this being on a phone. Although that grave digger kept dancing all the way to the right and easy a pain to feed! And the way he danced so carelessly, I knew that inside he was mocking me and my poor throwing skills.

Five stars for graphics and humor. I can't believe I'm the first to comment. Awesome dance animations.

Silly but fun. Never played a game where I throw food to a digger before so it gets bonus points for that :)

This put such a dumb smile on my face, especially the ending :)

Really great presentation on this. Great music, without being overpowering, and the animations work really well. Gameplay is nice and smooth too, and I felt so smart once I figured out I could bounce food off the walls.

Funny idea, nice implementation. Not a fan of the music but those dance animations made me laugh hard. Well done.

Graphics and music are just awesome! I was confused at first cause I though I controlled the guy. ameplay is interesting but can become monotonous.

Amazing game, sadly enough the sound was not looping but it was really catchy, also if you double click you can drop 2 items good job

Thanks so much, everyone, for the kind words! We set out to make a short game that was good for a laugh and based on your comments, we succeeded. So again, thanks!

This was our first LD. Both of us can't wait until the next.

It's funny, but a bit frustrating when the guy starts to move while the snack is in midair.

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.
