I really like the use of theme, and the game feels very tight and responsive. However, some audio would've been nice, as well as some health bars. I also experienced a glitch were I was able to still shoot, move, an no-clip after dying :P

Nice idea! A tutorial would be great

I still have no idea how to win here, but looks fun :)

Cool game. Is it possible to win?

Thanks everyone!! I just added some basic healthbars!
It seems impossible to play without it so I think it's allowed after the 48 hours :)

A bit of allright, a bit easy when you kite around in circles.

fun to play

Simple but fun. Liked the art, especially the STARING EYES and the dopey-looking portrait for the player character.

i think the idea was kinda fun but there was no sound that was a huge turnoff for me. Sound is incredible important for feeling of a game.

Love the vibe. That face will haunt my dreams.

haha. This is funny. Glad the theme is limited to one screen, otherwise we have to defend ourselves from multiple wives .. lol

Hehe. Took me way too long to realize I had a gun...and then again too long to realize I could shoot the screen...Fun now though.

OK.. This is weird ;) I was pretty bad at playing. Shame no sounds. Liked the graphics and interpretation/mood. Good job!

It's a bit random but I like the "waifu" reference XD

Definitely not ideal for playing with a trackpad, but it was still a solid experience. It could definitely use some audio, but the art and camera lerping was good!

Very cool game! Really liked the controls.

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. 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.
