I had a fatal crash when trying to use the laser beam! Fun otherwise :)

The game might not play nice with Windows 8/8.1, but works just fine on Windows 7 or 10. This is probably my fault but too late now :-(

Pretty great game! I loved being able to swap between the two monsters and using each of their abilities together to beat the levels. Graphics and audio fit the game well, too. Good job!

Loved the graphics. The light in the back was a nice small touch.

Good graphism, could have been maybe better with more sfx on targets

Pretty fun and looks great! Not sure if this worked or not, but in the survival levels I spammed the change monster button to avoid taking damage.

Really enjoyed the execution of this! The attacks felt good, I just wish there was a little bit more to do as the ground monster than mash space bar but overall this has a great aesthetic and feels good to play. Great job!

It's hard to be a Kaiju! :D

Love the idea, it's a pity we did not break enough in gameplay (need to destroy HARDER!)

Would like to play more but I get the same crash as MagnesiumNinja (Windows 8). Won't rate cuz I barely played but the switching concept seemed like fun.

Amazing look, very good atmosphere, sprites look awesome! Could balance the gameplay a bit, give the player a little more to defend themselves.

Nice game! Laser beam crashed my game(win8) but I still felt the game was quite cool. Really loved the graphics & sound!

Overall nice atmosphere, with great graphics and good music.
Gameplay-wise it starts ok, but there is a lack of defensive possibilities as a walker(except lightning, but even that is very limited use). So,could use some more balancing.
Good entry!

Very awesome mood with the tv camera effect and audio. Nice mechanic switching back and fourth between the two distinct modes.

Great entry!

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.
