Haha, beautiful, i had no idea what was going on, i was placing the kids, blocking the snowman and collecting the snowflakes, totally surreal and beautifully serene, i absolutely love the music, nice one :) To have to explore and try it out yourself might be just neglecting every aspect of making a game or just the best idea ever. I enjoyed it immensely!!!

Prototype for a tower defense like game?

@sharp911 Drag the Ness d

@Wiering I didn't make it so I can't take the credit. :P Thanks anyway!

@ben_pxlplz What was the actual issue? Could you not get the game to run or did it crash?

@Larzan Thanks!! I'm glad that you liked it so much even if it's just a bareboned, unfinished game! Means a lot to me.

@Zwergesel Yes! It's my second time making one, and it's more difficult than I imagined! I'm still not used to Unity very much.

@sharp911 Sorry. I hit submit comment too early and can't edit my messages. I meant: Drag the Ness to the grid and he will block the snowmen! The game was supposed to have also units that can shoot the snowmen! I will maybe add them later on.

I'm really not sure you should have submitted this in it's current state - it really does feel unfinished. So I drag Ness and the snowmen stop... which does nothing since you can just stop all of the snowmen by placing 5 Nesses. It really feels pretty pointless in it's current state.
(Oh, and you're meant to opt out of categories you didn't make all the assets for - so graphics and audio need to be opted out of, since the Ness sprites and music weren't made by you.)
Placement was quite buggy as well, you could place Ness on both sides of a snowman when they were in the right spot and they'd jump upwards a little.
The snowflakes flew upwards? Uhh...
Yeah, this needs a lot of improvement, and probably some sort of idea as to what you want it to be. Some sort of goal.

There is really nothing to this. When you said unfinished, you really meant it. There is no objective and no working game. Not a bad start to a game, but too unfinished to be worth playing. Sorry /:

What is going on? Unicode snowmans are attacking the kids and stuff.
That said, the graphics are nice(very polished too) and the music is great.
If you can make this a game, go for it.
Nice idea, good job. Hopefully you'll be able to finish this later.

@popcorn897 Yes, I said it was unfinished myself, so your comment doesn't really add anything! I already knew this.

@joppiesaus Haha thanks! It's comments like these that makes it all worth it. :')

The audio was good...

Dunric says ...
Dec 22, 2014 @ 9:47am

@Shivur I agree. :)

Very nice ;)

could have been good. next time maybe start with making the shooters^^

Dunric says ...
Dec 27, 2014 @ 7:37pm

@Poupi Thanks for the feedback dude! You rock!

@FistBumpGames Great advice! Thanks!

Dec 27, 2014 @ 11:45pm

kind of sucks that the game is not finished. the controls was hard to figure out and once i did there was not much for me to do.

You really need to opt out of certain catagories if you didn't make the content yourself, especially copyrighted stuff. :(
I'm guessing you were going for a Flowers vs Zombies thing?
Whatever is here could have been nice, but I think you need to go over the LD rules. :(
Well done for trying though!

Dunric says ...
Dec 29, 2014 @ 2:09pm

@Valeour So many sad faces. :) Cheer up mate! It's only a game. Games are supposed to be fun. LD is supposed to be fun. So far you're the only one to complain about the rules. Why not take it for what it is? Also it's Plants vs Zombies, not flowers.

Valeour says ...
Dec 29, 2014 @ 2:35pm

I'm not angry, I was just giving feedback. I'm glad you took part, it's just frustrating that people still don't read the rules.

In any case, I'm sorry, my comment was more negative than it was meant to be, but thank you for trying my game anyway.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
