Kitten Karnage

by Beanalby - Compo Entry

Cats are jerks.

Note: I don't have the machines to test the Linux and OSX builds, but it's a simple game, shouldn't have problems.

Pretty fun! Somehow, jumping on the branches pulled it all together.

This was really sweet! I liked that you weren't just a usual monster but a cat. The not-pixelated, good art was also very refreshing.

Nice job, the art style is nice :) There was a collision issue or two, but overall it handles well.

Nice graphics and take on the theme. I included it in part 18 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/U5AMORGkiRk

Great graphics! Nice touch having the birds sit on the branches! I just found a bit weird the birds just stay in the air instead of constantly moving and not avoiding the cat (but that's just detail). Also a bit too much feathers when bird dies...?
The cat's jump/fall felt a bit slow too, but maybe that's just me. Had a collision bug at the edge of the branch but nothing serious.
Anyway, nice usage of the theme and it was sweet to play! Great job!

Nice game, I didn't like the sounds too much, but it was fun. I liked the graphics and the feather explosion effect.

Solid entry. Simple but fun to play.

Hey! Thanks for making a game.

What we enjoyed -
The art style is light and fun, the animation of the jumping cat and the explosion of bird feathers was really nice. The little elements of humour really added to the fun of the game as well.

What could be improved -
Some music really helps arcadey games with short gameplay loops, even something simple would add a lot. The sounds didn't quite match the art style, more natural sounds would match the very natural artwork.

Thanks!

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.
