Not entirely sure what the goal is, but I had fun trying to figure it out.

Mmmh, delicious grilled lamb chops.

Definitely innovative! I like the "tendrils" as a visualisation of how the poltergeist is struggling against being thrown out.

Liked the way you had to navigate the house using the tendrils and fire. The simple design also works well. Sheep combo for the win.

I wonder how did you invent this idea, and I'm not sure, that I understood it right. But I finished the game and had fun with it. I liked how the movement was made.

Interesting concept, took me a while to figure it out though, perhaps a small explanation would help. Also, gfx update and some music would set a serious mood on this. Solid entry, with some polish this could be a really cool game!

The concept is nice... Inovative, but semiotics could be better employed. overall, Congratulations !!

Innovative and very fun! Demon sheeps, a TV and flamethrower. How did you get the concept altogether?

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.
