My god, a kendo game. I don't have anyone to play with locally so I can't rate it, but just looking at the stills brings me back.

TSUKI!!

I found the controls a bit awkward feeling, but this is pretty cool. Reminds me of Bushido Blade in concept. GREAT audio.

It looks really cool. I was pretty confused playing against a bot though.

Didnt have anybody to play with, but enjoyed it none the less due to the auto attack.

Fun game to play with others, and good graphics too. (I have Windows 8 and it worked for me)

When I saw prewiev I thought it was a fighting game. But it wasn't as simple as it seems! I was pleasantly surprised.

Great presentation, both graphics and audio. Dig the concept. Had problems figuring out controls. Also it would be a good idea to place fighters in the middle of the screen, kinda easier to watch.

Looks really good - big Kendo fan here :)

But can I please have a portable version? It's a pain in the asp to have to install/uninstall 100 LD games :/

It was fun. Choosing my stand before attack, trying to fool the opponent and win the round. Also, the voices and music are great!

Overall, it's a good game.

The installer took ages, but that aside, you did a great job. I wish the controls were a bit more responsive. I was pressing keys and it seemed to just work at random.

Sorry, not going to install anything. So skipping this one. Looks great, but unfortunately won't rate for this reason. If you have a video or a gif, that would be nice to see :)

Gameplay is too static. If it was more dynamic (animated) it would feel better.

It's fun to play this game with friends =)
Can't figure out what controls are doing exactly, though.

looks like a lot more fun vs a real opponent. Against a bot the timer took too long.

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.
