Cool concept! Unfortunately the game was too big to fit on my monitor. That made it difficult to play.

The controls make it borderline unplayable, what with the lack of real mouselook and the mouse continually escaping.

Controls are a little weird, it was hard to read the instruction panel so I didn't realise you needed to hold Right click to turn around :P

It's a little tricky to get the controls, but the graphic is nice, well done!

Nice idea and I love 1st-Person.
Monster is a bit to weak though and controls are not so responsive.

I seemed to get this weird glitch where I was knocked back into the ceiling / floor whenever I was hit. Setting the graphics to fantastic seemed to fix it though.

Neat game! The alternative perspective on the boss fight is cool, and the dash ability to send the heroes flying off into the other side of the room is really fun.

Controls are weird especially with the mouse getting out of the window. worked well on IE

Tried the web and download version and this is almost impossible to play, the controls feel very, very clunky.

I really like the idea, but...
the knockbacks was annoying, while i'll figured out I can dash. With better control (and controls screen!!!) this should be a very good game.

It's a bit tough to get used to the controls, but it's fun - kind of feels like Startopia!

The idea is there. First person is always fun ;) You really need to come up with a better control scheme though.

Fun. Controls are a little bit weird, but this is a funny FPS

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.
