Ginger Game !

by Saphyre - Jam Entry

No weapon to fight, just your feet to run.
Plus, you are ginger...

Try to stay alive as long as possible.
Which should be seconds.

[SPACE/Left Mouse Button] ==> Higher canon rate / Better score / More fun

[Arrow keys/ WASD] ==> Run (fast)

Walk on the menu buttons (if you can) to start the game.

I don't quite understand how it works, I got stuck on the title screen.

Interesting, but a little confusing.

I too got stuck on the title screen. Once I did figure it out I was able to survive for a bit ~750. I really didnt know if changing the difficulty was working for me or not. I also longed to have something to fight back with.

Really fun game! I loved the twist of controlling the two entities, nice job!

Nice and interesting gameplay. Unfortunately I can't move the player with my right hand, because up, left and space at the same time didn't work.

Kudos for supporting both WASD and arrow keys. Funny audio. Way too hard though. I would like a way to win, but it was so random it seemed nearly impossible.

This was a nice game, it never really got far and always died :( Looks nice though and the idea was great!

Funny dodging game. Some times the guy guy stay stuck on the edge of screen.
I tried to spam spacebar but nothing changed.

Nice, my high score was 2342, too much chaos when the mouse button is pressed :D

Fun and punishing - well done! Even the menu... Which is something one does not see very often...

Very amusing. Bit hectic, but enjoyable. Collisions seem a bit unfair at times, and it's hard to tell if I'm definitely going to die. In any case, good job! :D

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.
