Wow, amazing idea :O And great execution too. Gamefeel is great!
Only thing would be that it's hard to quickly see what curse you're getting, but that may be part of the fun! Great job yo!

Cute. Clever concept, and the gameplay is solid. Wayyyyy too many ghosts though.

Very nice. Game functions well and graphics are good. Really like the gameplay, it was pretty unique and mixed the formula up a bit.

Scoreboards where a nice touch.

Fantastic integration on the web. Really fun to move around and play - my only regret is that once you go cursed, you don't go back.

So do you guys get an error when running it on 32 bit?

Okay, managed to play it through the source. Nice piece of work, and challenging. If not impossibly difficult... love the online leaderboard stuff and graves of players.

It's all right, I end up getting a repeat error which I'll post below. The graphical style is pretty cool but I didn't notice any gravestones. On death, this is the error I got:

Push :: Execution Error - Variable Get -5.averageScore(100012, -1)
at gml_Script_calculateLevel

Seems like an error that happens when you don't have an internet connection, sorry!

Looks neat, but my controls got revered for some reason while I was playing. Not sure if that was part of the "curse" or not

Very Vlambeer, and I mean that in the most complimentary way. Fun idea having random curse effects. Fun entry, nice integration with the leaderboards. Nice job!

Really love the concept of breaking the rules of the game, a personal favorite of mine :) Great execution too!

Haha, reminds me of Crimsonland. Nice idea for making graves disappear, and so on :)

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.
