Your web link does not appear to work. Even when I click on 'index.html' I get the options to download or save to my dropbox.

Great entry! The game is fun and the art is great. There were lots of bugs, but it was still playable. Good job.

Very good for a first entry! It was very clicky, and I found the pace of upgrades, etc. to be a bit slow. However, since turrets are not yet working, perhaps that would change. Might I suggest including a few different snowball sounds and playing a random one each time you throw? This would make the "grind" of the throwing feel more natural and less repetitive. Congrats on finishing your first LD game!

I enjoyed watching you work on this game man, like the graphics, hope you do a little more on it in terms of balancing out the gameplay ^^

Sound probably needs to be a bit louder but the game itself has a lot of potential. Also, congratulations on surviving your first LD :D

This has a certain charm about it.

I like those games generally, but yours is too slow

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.
