Holy shit, this is really neat 3D for a GM project. I'd love to know how you managed to have such a result (or is it mainly because GM Studio is higly different from GM8).
Anyway, the idea is really good and the feeling is great :>

Very good mechanic and cute little game. The only annoyances were the repetition of sounds and how long it takes to replay.

Super good :)

Ahah, this is great. A little slow whenever it comes to text, but it's so much dumb fun.
... and now I want ramen. Damn.

This is genius! Poor ramen man. At first he ate more than me but then I ate more than him >:)

this game is hilarious, although at first I thought I was controlling the chopsticks... didn't even see the squid(realized after the squid got eaten a few times that the arrows controlled it in the water). It's a pretty funny game, anyway. Do you get something special if you manage to eat 15 pieces of food?

Aug 25, 2015 @ 5:20pm

Excellent little entry, you've obviously made good use of the extra 24 hours! I particularly liked the King of all Cosmos vibe from the ramen man!

Cutest game on Ludum Dare 33 period
Physics is super sick, The whole thing looks great and I particularly love the sound effects.
RIP ramen :(

This is a great concept, executed extremely well. I couldn't stop playing until I ate all of the ramen. The character is adorable, and the gibberish audio is perfect for the feel of the game. Well done.

This is amazing. Like, it kind of makes me mad because it's *so* good. It works well, there is a challenge. The idea of having to hop out to eat is really clever. Even how you get bigger as you eat, which makes it harder for you to eat more. Well done.

Audio was out of this world! Controls were a bit hard at first, but I got a hang of it quickly.

Amazing game! Very polished (you nailed the scope of the game), clear mechanic and the most imporatnat, I actually had fun with it.
I would love to play this with different recipes of Ramen.

Cute, awesome game! I included it in part 15 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)

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 ( 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.
