Get rid of those cute animals quickly!

Dogs are cute!
Cats are cuter!
Bunnies are the cutest!!!! Watch out for those damn CUTE bunnies, you dont want to get love from them!

(We did this to learn how to use Unreal Engine 4 over the 72 hours, and I'd say we succedeed :))

I feel that 365.76 MB is a bit excessive. It looks really cute though!

First point: That's a massive download! Is there anything you can do about that?
Other than that, it was cute! It was very very hard though.

UPDATE: There was a bunch of crap in the project, reduced file size to 80 MB, im guessing thats much better :P

I thought it was funny that you're sort of a bad guy trying to destroy all cute things before you inevitably are overcome by love. The animals did look very cute. Unfortunately the controls felt very sticky. Sound would have been nice, but (of course) time constraints.

Quite fun, maybe that left ctrl attack lacks a bit of ergonomy.

hah this is a hilarious idea though I don't think it fits the theme that well given the gameplay itself.

Also, did you really use the unreal engine for a 2D game? lol.

Left control to attack was a bad idea. I seem to be getting pretty bad input lag as well. However the graphics do fit into a retro theme pretty well. I don't hear any audio so I'm not sure why you opted in the audio category. It seems like when I restart the enemies don't spawn either when I restart. The over-simplistic gameplay makes this not very fun at all.

I feel like a monster, exploding all that cuteness. 5/5 in theme :P

This incredibly crazy. Huge game files (unreal) for a simple concept. The cuteness is killing me!!

My score is 3210, I don't know if that's good or not ^^ good idea with those cute animals. But it was hard to control the monster, and left ctrl to attack is tricky. But nice job !

The controls are a bit awkward and at the end if you press play again you are left alone in the level with nothing to do. But damn! Those bunnies are some cute lovin' bastards!

Left ctrl with WASD movement is a bit awkward. neat game though.

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.
