I can't run this (Windows 8.1). I click on the .exe and all that happens is a pop-up that tries to open a file.

(Windows 8.1) I am not able to run the game. A pop-up appears asking me to open a file.

Can't play. It asks for a dll that it's not included.

Win7 64bit,
When I try to run the EXE it prompts me to open a file.
I opened the Source in Game Maker and played it.
Interesting idea with the 4 stances, things start to ramp up in difficulty after a bit which is nice. Some feedback to know if I've hit something and how much it hurt them or how much energy they have left would be nice.

I confirm the exe doesn't launch and prompt to open a file instead. I could launch through Game Maker: Studio though. The game is ok but a bit simple. I couldn't really feel any difficulty and was wondering if the spawning of the demons would change. I couldn't spot any gameplay difference between the stances, maybe you should have make them more obvious.

I've experienced the same problem as everyone else, but ran the source code in Game Maker and had a pretty good time.
The particle effects and lasting bloodstains on the walls all work very nicely, and the game is pretty fun for the first minute or so. After that, though, I felt it to be a little repetitive, since no new enemy types show up and you never have to do anything besides move turn left/right and hammer away at the left mouse button.
The idea of stances was really cool, but I feel like it fell flat in execution. I didn't really feel like any stance aside from the default one was really practical in any way, so I really left that feature alone. I also thought it was something of a missed opportunity not to have the character actually change their sprite slightly to reflect their battlestance.
Finally, I really have to encourage you not to use comic sans if you can avoid it. It's considered by many to be one of the least professional fonts available, and very few people will take your work seriously if you use comic sans.

All I got was a file open prompt. I'm on Windows 7 home premium, 64-bit

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.
