Unfortunately I can't run your game on Windows 7 (64bit). I get "Bernardstomb.exe has stopped working". Am I missing a library or something?

Game looks good. Monsters are funny and creepy at the same time. I like games with simple controls and clear goals.

I agree with Yaroslav Kravtsov, Monsters are funny and creepy at the same time :D I love there AI of staying out of light and hopping away :D Really cute little game with solid graphics and good aesthetics!

Ace! So simple yet so nuanced! I love the little creatures, the swarm is PERFECT. I think I got to wave 4 and then when I got close to the edge they just all CAME AT ME BRO and we all went off the edge. Fantastic entry!

I had a few crashes when the monsters fell off the edge, but other than that, really cool! I love the art! reminded me of retro tomb raider (minus the sprites obv)

For me, it shows only blue screen and writes "Error : can't read file D:/ld31-games/Bernardstomb_win/meshs/player_head.maa:" into console window.

Also it crashes after I try to close the window.

Tested on Win7 32bit.

Awesome graphics and physics. Game crashes when monsters are pushed off the edge.

Really fun and quirky, I like it, it crashed after i died but it's quick to restart so it didnt hinder my enjoyment.

Could not get this to work on my Windows 8 64bit. Ran it and it said there was a problem with the exe.

I am not sure how you keep the fire from going out unless it is just on a timer but I pushed all the monsters off before more came. Nice mood and art style! Good job this was fun!

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.

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.
