That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!

Run away!!!

But seriously, what a fun theme. Please be patient with the web player; it takes a little bit, but I guarantee that it loads!

Hahaha, I love it! Really loyal to the film :)
I think I hit a bug on the final boss. I disappeared and the giant knight kept on running to the left.. is that ok?

Thanks!

Nice game, quite satisfying to gnaw those guys' heads off.

I had a bit of trouble with guys being off the edge of the screen, later levels especially had a lot of waiting for enemies to reappear.

I've had the same issue as cgmorton with enemies jumping off screen and having to wait for them to show up again, other than that it was pretty fun.

The humor in this game is great! Also it's super simple and fun.

I also had the issue with enemies going off the screen. Maybe instead of running in the opposite direction from the bunny off the screen they could run the opposite direction up until the edge of the screen, but if that's too close they could run past the bunny to the other side of the screen.

That rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!

Could've used a bit more of a game to it, but still quite fun :) People running off to the right and jumping around off the screen trying to find them was definitely a bit of an issue

Absolutely fun and hilarious to play plus I like how the game's concept is inspired by Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Well I managed to jump out of the map, but I think I got the jist of it. Feels great to play, some good ol' visceral carnage. Excellent use of theme.

Quite entertaining :) It does become a bit of a mouse-button-masher, because I don't think there's any way to lose - but I like the idea and the style. Nice work!

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.
