Interesting game, felt a bit bland, however I like the use of the 3D.

Pretty nice. As a person who's scared to go deep swimming, this is a little scary :D

Ha, this is great. Love the animations!

The animations and models are great and agree that this did scare me a little.

Those fishs and sharks animations are really great as the other already said.

I got surrounded by sharks once, which was pretty damn scary.
Somehow managed to escape.
Its a good game :)

great controls and animations.
Although after my 4th fish I did feel like the game was lacking something :/
I think you could have a really fun game here if you had a few more things to do or advanced on what you currently have.

Nice game, I like the idea why no audio? water noises and fishes bubbles ^^

Really nice animations! Sometimes it's not obvious why you didn't catch the fish but I found myself in the middle of the crazy chase a few times. :)

Intersting game. Only the score numbers are boring. The Rest is great.

haha love that you did a 3d game and I got super into it. If you had more time you could smooth out the modeling of the fish. I couldn't tell the difference between the little fish and the sharks either.

You managed to capture that underwater feeling pretty well with small resources and I really liked that. It's a shame there's absolutely no sound though. That would add a lot to the experience.

Apr 29, 2014 @ 9:57pm

Yep you should have add some ambiant sound ;) (I work on same kind of survival game for this LD and the sound is very important for the mood)

Impressive works on shades and animation. Would love to see a full featured game over this. Congrats.

Amazing model animation and motion, the lighting really feels like you're in the water. Sounds are needed desperately, feedback is needed when you're in danger, or when you successfully eat a fish.

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.
