I think I ran towards the UFO by mistake and got zerged. Love the idea that you're controlling a dream on a screen though. Nice.

Interesting interpretation of the theme. Nice screen effects.

Great interpretation. Great Graphics. I got swarmed pretty fast since I ran towards the UFO. It seemed like the only path but it was a big mistake.

I'd be nice to have the possibility to restart without the intro.

The story is interesting but the screen where we play is maybe too small in the picture, the game could be better if you enlarge it, to make the action more clear.

For the game itself, it works not incredible, but for a first game in Ludum Dare that's great, there is all element, and it's more complete that's some "finished" games.

It lacks of using the Dream idea, maybe distortion, change of reality or a switch between several patient.

I hope you're second game will be better.

I have a feeling that if you completed this it would be really really cool.

Wow, just wow. Really immersive and genuinely scared me - should not have played this last thing at night :-) thank goodness it's only on a small screen & not a 3D headset.

Nice Theme hacking! :D
I liked the dream world very much, great implementation dude! Intro skipping would be cool, and some ways to run away from those guys who eat me :D Great job!

I ran backwards and spammed left click until I got stuck. Interesting concept.

Is this what acid is like? Anyway, really interesting idea. Very impressive that you got it done during the timeline. Great work.

After laughing as I swatted the first enemy with my hand, I quickly got pretty stressed out by the evil swarm of munching heads chasing me through the forest. If I have a nightmare about this tonight I'll be sad :(

Nice atmosphere, pretty difficult to find the other buttons though. Also I liked the cinematic introduction. Nice camera tweening there

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.
