An interesting game, lacked a bit of 'fun' early, but as I stuck around, I could appreciate the game. Would have had it be a bit more responsive.

The concept of the game was pretty creative and different. The music was nice. Some levels were a bit too tricky mainly because the guards will instantly chase you once the level starts and there would always be a bit of delay with the controls the first second or so after restarting a level. It was pretty fun, though.

I would have prefer to see less words (and less controls) and more feelings (and fun). But I appreciated the challenge.

I see where your going with this. The intro was a little long, but a very creative game.

Fun game, I would start you out hidden, as it took me at least one "death" a level until I could read enough to figure out what was going on.

It's really original. I like the idea:)

This game makes you juggle a lot of stuff with your left hand only. And I didn't see where tomatoes did anything at all. Pretty much unplayable for me after scene 2.

interesting, creative concept, but a better control scheme would be nice (like making the movements on the arrow keys instead of WASD)

Really awesome concept, but the controls and the poor level design make it sometimes impossible to play. (I had to skip one level, where you start in the lower right corner, and there is a guard at a bush turning around after around a second after the level starts and killing you, and I found nothing I could do against it.)
Still, I thought the rope grapping/cutting mechanic was pretty sweet. Also the "endboss" was awesome and frightening.

Creative concept, but I think you should be able to throw tomatoes by clicking.

Does it not? I do not seem to have issues with it.
Does the link itself not work or it doesn't load or such...?
Try a different browser, that's what I would suggest.

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.
