I love the hand-drawn look of the game. The gameplay has a very nice progression to it as well.

Beautiful music/visuals and a pretty nice take on the theme.

Interesting and well-done, but I don't think animals work that way.

Very good mood, nice work with the gameplay and I like the mood and theme. Nature is worth much more then what we do with it. Well done!

Is it possible to provide a linux download? Unity web player doesn't work in Linux.

Looks beautiful (really unique approach), effective music and an interesting gameplay take on the theme! Found the controls a little tricky when trying to get all three animals past the boulder, but it's a really good idea overall, with solid execution. Great work!

ZNCatlaw: We've added a linux download now! Hopefully it will work, never done a linux build before. Crossing fingers that Unity does its magic :)

Nice game! Loved what you did with the theme and the criticisim behind it. Great working setting the right mood of the game. Congrats!

Sweet and simple, but at times deceptively hard... I liked it! Your SFX could use a little work, I think, and I also had difficulty with the controls--mouse might have worked a bit better? Click to interact, mouse wheel to swap animals, right click to initiate follow mode? Space to jump?

Still, it was a really relaxing few minutes, and I loved the idea. Thanks for the game!

Great atmosphere and interesting idea. I like how you must toggle between the animals to use their strengths. Having the pressure of the bulldozer coming after you made me hurry even more than I needed.

Superb submission!

Nice entry! The controls / physics were a bit floaty and jittery, but I loved the style and mood of the game.

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.
