Very impressive art assets for such a short amount of time. The game itself was pretty fun, though I think some more sound effects would have really added to the experience.

Great-looking game! The controls need a little polish, but not bad.

I dont know why, but it is supper satisfying to punch in this game. It would be even better if there was some reaction from the enemies when getting hit.

Fantastic art, but the gameplay seemed a little lacking. All in all, not bad!

I, too, missed some sound effects.
The dificullty was alright and the art assets are great, considering the time and all.

The art direction is fantastic, the music is good, the game plays quite well, is jump actually necesarry?

One problem I had was that I kept losing my children because tehy got stuck against buildings and refused to move.

The game looks neat, but somehow I couldn't get the egg laying done fast. btw, great work to get such beautiful designs at short time!

Graphics were great! Although I couldn't find the place where I was supposed to take the kids to.

It looks very nice and having the baby monster following me was fun.
A bit more direction with what to do might be good.

Animations are awesome by the way

This is a wonderful game. The art is just amazing. Nice work with the texturing on the terrain. This is very complete for a jam entry and I can't really find anything critical to say :)

Graphics and gameplay(jumping on the hills to avoid enemies) is really great. I think if there is no possibility to move/rotate the weapon with the mouse, than the fire controls should be on the keyboard so there is no need for mouse at all.

Very nice visuals.

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.
