Fun little game. I absolutely love the fact that the building disappears if it is in front of the character.

Nice little adventure, quite liked exploring the environment and rushing people to knock them over

Good quality and I appreciate the story. It feels like a lite version of Party Hard game. Killing people just because.

The game is funny, but it needs to be longer.
Anyways, it looks great.

I got caught off-guard by the build up. I feel like the interpretive visuals work well with your theme. Good work!

Amazing game! Love the artwork and mood it creates. When the citizens accuse you, I really wanted to know how it continued. And the clue is good.

Nice mood to the game. I was getting null reference exceptions when killing some of the citizens but it didnt seem to affect the gameplay.

Nice graphics, the way the buildings fade is very nice. Would have been more fun if the objectives were a bit harder to get to.

nice work! the camera angle is a bit awkward w/ the cursor keys, but the way you walk around, interact, and especially the visibility code to let you see inside buildings is really nice!

Fun game and idea; I like how everything escalted that quickly

Very nice atmosphere, the music and style really helped create a world. Was a nice and short and at the end I commited suicide by jumping off the world, nice fitting end. Overall it was enjoyable, good stuff!

Overall I like the idea. Not seen much Turning into a monster themes.

I read one comment as "They should have hugged you". Thought I made a friend.

Great mood and personality even though it's only blocks. Really enjoyed it!

PS: Thanks for commenting on my game! To answer your question: Yes, it's solvable ;)

Did a good job with the fading on the buildings for visibility
Controls seem a little misaligned with the camera
Loved the theme of your work

I was pleasantly surprised to find these box-people and their world very emotionally engaging.

I love it.

It was fun to just walk around and get yelled at by people.

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.
