Haha that was a fun game. Saw your game on AGDG, awesome promotional art. Gameplay reminded me of Hotline Miami, but I'm a bit too casual for it. Loved the tripping out graphics though!

I loaded the game on chrome and safari on my Mac, all I got is a black screen with a health bar at the top.

Wow, this is awesome. Great game, good job. Cool art, I really like the "wolfenstein" picture.

Very much like Miami Hotline, but it also have distinct differences. Like the drug aspect, which was insanely awesome. The whole thing turned out a little too hard, though. Everytime I punch someone, they manage to punch back before they die, so I could never get past 2 in score. But whatever, I enjoyed the game anyway. Great stuff!

Wow! the Graphics of this game are absolutely great. And I really like the different hallucination levels and the whole allusion to Wolfenstein. The levels are procedurally generated too, aren't they?

But the game was far too hard for me. In more than 20 tries, I wasn't able to pass the second level. Am I just really bad?

Fun game with lots of potential. The graphics and audio are great. It's so hard though.

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.
