You are an egg. You must save your chicks before your shell is broken.

Controls are ZQSD. Type Alt + Shift on an QWERTY keyboard to use WASD instead.

Enjoy the game, and feel free to leave a comment, we want to improve the game outside the competition. Any advice will be welcomed.

Who would've thought it would be fun to roll around in an egg. Besides that you should totally change the control scheme to WASD or arrow keys, I spent around a minute figuring it out, and it would be cool if the music upped the tempo close to the end. Saved 37 chicks!

Hi, this is Vector from the Victory Garden team! (posting under Solifuge's account)

I really wanted to play this game, but I could not for the life of me figure out the controls. Do you think you could post them? The sound is great, the interpretation of the theme is great, it looks absolutely adorable... but without controls posted, it's really hard to rate you...

Anyway, thanks for the entry!

Hi, sorry for the lack of information, as you know, we were in a hurry ^^. We're a french team, so controls are ZQSD instead of WASD, type Alt + Shift to switch from QWERTY to AZERTY. Hope you'll enjoy the game !

A fun little game. The music was very fitting.

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.
