It's so sad that you worked on this game for 48 hours, and forgot to post a download link. On the other hand, you might be doing the 72 hour jam, in which case, lets just wait and see...!

Sorry about that folks, it was late when I was submitting, I'm not sure why the original link wasn't working, there shouldn't be any problems now.

Love the 3D graphics!

I got the game, but it doesn't seem to be working. Nothing happens when I am playing, no enemy. I think it's a bug, and because there is still time, I will not give any mark for now.
But fix it! ^-^

unsure where to go. NPCs go in different directions.

GUI goes out of screen bounds when playing @ 1280x720, windowed.

the attacking felt a little odd at times, but once i figured out how to spin to win it was great.

This was Great! I really liked it. The Multi attack Mechanic as cool. I kind of felt like maybe the camera could be a bit higher. It felt a bit claustrophobic. I really liked the footstep audio

Interesting idea. Great lowpoly graphics and a somewhat charming brute of a protagonist hehe!

It seems like it's made to be played in 1080p though, so it's a bit zoomed in on my laptop playing on other resolutions.

Fun little game! I wish there was a bit more enemy variety, or maybe some more depth to the combat involving your character(maybe some weapon / skill upgrades?). The camera also made it hard to find the enemy spawn and the castle at first as well. The game was still pretty solid, and I had fun playing it. Keep it up!

Verrry beautiful and well executed game of the tower defense genry.
Sad that i can't seem to place the tier 2 towers :)

Really fun. I played quite some time but enemies kept getting stuck in the walls, even on the first wave. It was a little confusing to figure out where the enemies were going to come from, especially with the large empty space in the wrong direction.

Great style and gameplay overall.

Best! 5/5 overall. It s incredible you have done all by yourself.

I've found the controls really had to use and the sounds not very enjoyable, but the graphics were cool and the idea is nice. Great work !

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
