by spassfabrik - Jam Entry

Help the cat to find the- hey that's a fly!
Now...where were we? Oh yeah, so you have to help the ca- look at this fish!

This is my first Ludum Dare and the first game I made completely on my own!

Controls: point and click

Try to find the food without getting too distracted.

Bug fixes:
- fixed an issue with cat movement (cat would start bouncing around)
- fixed sound bug
- fixed a bug in which yarn object would move incorrectly

This game is really weird. It's a cat floating around that sometimes starts to flip out.
You just have to click random places until you find all the food.

Kind of hard to understand the goal, and the user can't cancel actions which seems a bit odd while playing it...

I figured it out, but it is kind of weird. The cat should maybe stop bouncing around once it gets to where you click.

This game didn't make any sense to me, but strangely enough I really really liked the graphics.

It is really cute. The mechanics doesn't work as well as they could; it's more about patience than a real challenge, but it is funny, so it is not hard to be patient.

The controls are strange, I couldn't tell if i was controlling the cat or not, you could also get the cat to go all the way to the roof and other strange places. I like the graphics though.

I do love the theme. But even though it's very humorous, the music is all deep, and it doesn't make sense in my head I guess. Keep it on!

Great graphics in game and on the distro website. The game is a little short but fairly polished (ignoring the cat floating around a bit). The different cat images were pretty good (like the sit). I dig the music and cat sfx.

Maybe some objects could interact together somehow or there could be something more? It is pretty calming and simple as is though.

This is one of my favourites. The graphics have that indie charm that you really cant find anywhere else. 11/10 would pet again.

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.
