that redneck voice *chuckles*

humor would definitely be it's strong point, the dynamic control index at the beginning of the game is just not convenient.

There are long streches where there are no rabbits and nothing is happening. I'm just waiting 30 seconds doing nothing.

If I'm the monster, why do I feel shame?

I'm just going to come out and say it: why can't the menus work like normal menus? Even with the warning at the start, I found the menus very confusing. And then I found the gameplay confusing, since I didn't know what button was for shooting (turns out all of them).

I found it slightly annoying that sometimes rabbits would spawn and take a carrot before the crosshair went over them. Also, why do they only spawn on the right?

This might sound like I hated it, but I didn't. It was fun! I'm just better at expressing negativity than positivity (not a good way to make friends, but that's a story for another day).

I wish this reflected how I really felt, I felt 0% shame. Oh God, I think I could cry with laughter

@MasterZenith - yea, it's not too great about that, but having more carrots attracts more bunnies. And you feel shame because the alcohol is wearing off, of course!

@Slashee the Cow - first off, awesome name. Secondly no, they can't; they are monstrous and awful just like the hunter. I won't ever implement menus like this again though, too many negatives.
And they randomly decide a side to spawn on, you just got (un?)lucky.

This game is weird and I like it that way. The menu system? Love it. It works just like the shooting part.

Fantastic game. The insistence on only one button for input is weird, and the biggest challenge is just waiting for the reticle to swing back to the right so you can shoot th' bastards, but I guess it would be real easy otherwise.

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.
