Lumberninjack [unfinished]

by Orava - Jam Entry

Hold LMB and wiggle mouse to cut, hold RMB to move left/right.


Around 12h spent on it during the whole weekend because lazy. No win or lose condition. More of a tech demo for some cutting action.

Opted out of all ratings because not finished. Comments still welcome.

Definitely some cool tech. Slicing objects has always been interesting to me. It didn't seem like the mouse swipe matched what happened on screen though.

Mouse controls for both moving and cutting was weird. Maybe it would be better for keyboard + mouse?

I couldn't make it work beyond zooming in.

Are the cuts pre-made? If they are dynamic and you could have synced them to mouse movements, it would have been more satisfying.

@snapman Cuts can be made along any line techwise, but I chose to make it random for reasons that never became relevant because it's unfinished.

Good effort

Neat idea. I like the animation for the cutting - and the programming you did for that is really neat.

When I move the mouse though, it seems like the cuts are really random. And either the camera zooming in is a bug, or it's just really fast - I'd maybe tone that down a bit.

Nothing playable, but an interesting tech demo.

Would be interesting to see how it'll turn out as a full game.

The title is great, and the gameplay is intriguing. I'd like to see it made into an actual game!

Cool tech demo, with the right pacing, sounding and juicing it could be quite intriguing.

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. 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.
