Minions get stuck in respawn spot for few seconds every time after you die, other than that it felt like a compact game.

You're not stuck, in the uppper right corner you'll see the countdown until you can move. No time for a nice respawn effect :(

Nice game, but need to be polished more.

Nice overall game. Graphics are a nice but a bit weird (the wall layout doesn't use the same perspective as the lab props). It would help if we could see the SWAT area of vision.

Pretty good game with nice graphics and audio. I was totally spawn killed by one of the NPCs haha but overall good effort!

I really enjoyed it. Took me a bit to find out the controls but the gameplay and the strategic part are there. Wish we could have more weapons though.

Well done!

Cool game that follows the theme well! Nice graphics and sound! Would love to be able to remove the dialog with the mouse button, space and / or enter as it took me 3 mins to discover how to start the game (J button)!

Love the artwork. Specialy the floating brain and the hud graphics (portraits) I missed some feedback sound from the guys shooting. Had no idea they were shooting untill I payed more atention.

The game is easy and not very challenging... Nice graphics and music though!

Awesome graphics and sound, which really helped to set the mood. Unfortunately I died randomly, the idea wasn't exactly innovative, but that's okay. Nice work.

Interesting idea with nice graphics. I also missed that there's a counter for when can I start moving, I thought I was stuck.

The plot is interesting and a nice take on the theme, too, congratulations!! :D

Hi guys! Good work! The art is really cool (especially the opening screen! I also love the background music. I found this game a bit hard difficulty wise (maybe faster minions would help) - and I feel like some sound effects would have added a lot! Great job.

I thought close doors around the brain prevented the guards to find him, but ...

I enjoyed a lot, musics and graphics, the gameplay was very original.

It deserve to be more polished!

Thanks for everyone reporting the bug with the closed doors. A fixed version is coming within the next fews days with many fixes and more attention to details. We are really glad that you guys are enjoying the game :)

Feels a little unpolished, I'm sure you're aware. The graphics do look pretty nice though and it's fairly fun to play.

Nice art style and mood, I was so demoralized when the bomb squad guys disarmed my mines :( Great 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 ( 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.
