I really enjoyed this, some of the driftwood wasn't able to be picked up periodically though but other than that a sweet game

Fun little game... a bit grindy but good. The ending was unexpected, happened just as a nice rhythm was developing. Could really benefit from some music and sound effects.

Pretty good entry. The graphics could have been better but I really enjoyed your use of the theme.

It was a bit repetitive, but overall not bad. It would have been nice to have something to do other than move back and forth pressing f.

Cool little game. I recommend through you make a web version since it is Unity and it can easily be done, also I think you should change the sprites filter mode to point, it would look alot nicer.

I like the combination of the upgrade trees with the action. I noticed the crane wouldn't grab most driftwood automatically which was a bit annoying. I tried to destroy the octopus but he got me first.

I wasn't sure at first then I got the scanner. This was really good in many ways. plot progression was unexpected and cool. Awesome!

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.
