I really like the graphical style. I just hoped there would be more to this than what there was.

This is a time crunch, I understand but I would've liked to see more interaction.

Also the end didn't open up to me as it went by quite fast.

I liked the graphical style, but more to do would've been nice. :)

I also like the graphical style and was disappointed when the game ended so quickly. I think this has a lot of potential. What is here is pretty well done, so congrats!

Thanks. Game should be long but I need to cut many things to finish it in time. :)

Short narrative with good graphics. Wish there was a little bit more, but it's great entry never-the-less. Keep up the good work.

I liked the inner monologue. The controls, although simple, felt just right. The art is excellent.

Short, but that's what LD games should be. Thanks!

Short, but short enough. Good example how to show your idea without getting player bored.

Beautiful graphics and really nice animations. Was rather short but you said what you needed to say. (The text could be slowed down just a little bit)

Short but interesting take on the theme. The visuals and audio were nice. I felt like a better font could have been used.

The last line got a chuckle out of me. Nice artwork, too.

Nice graphics and surprise ending! I think it would have been better if you had used a more fitting font, though.

Cute little game, pretty short but the unique style makes it worth your time. I read the dialogue in a funny voice because of the way it was typed. I hope you continue to work on it!

Ha! I see now that you, as the developer, are the monster. Nice art.

Very nice graphics and animation. I would love to see this developed into a longer game, but the length of it is understandable given the time constraints and the time that you obviously put into the art.

I only had a couple of issues with it. The text on the screen was a little hard to read, not because of the text itself, but before the camera would jump around if I stopped to read it.

The other thing is is that even though the gun firing animation looked good, it didn't seem like the gun served much of a purpose in the game. Unless I missed something, you basically just run to the end of the level and then it's over.

But overall, very nice work. You're definitely very good at graphics.

I like graphic style/ Interesting idea, but it's so shot)

Aug 25, 2015 @ 6:54pm

Quite the meaningful take on the theme. I included it in part 2 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/vxHEoUQEThc

Love the art. I thought I might get a different ending if I didn't shoot, hahah.

Great style in graphics. Nice story telling. Short, but thats okay :)

Way too short. Shooting the monster or not doesn't make a difference. Final conversation is a little hard to follow, though you get the idea I guess.

Really, really cool graphical style 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.
