There was a long black screen before the game actually started, not sure if intentional.
Also hard to tell whether I'm attacking properly - some clicks seem to work, others seem to not.

Good idea, though!

Black screen and epic music. That's all I have right now after the unity loading screen.

collisions are very off and jumping to the second floor at one point sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't so I'm unfortunately unable to continue but what I've seen looks promising, I just wish I could tell If I were successfully hitting with sound ques or something :)

Great music and I love the aesthetic! I couldn't get past the second house though. The first time I got trapped behind the red and white box on the left and the second time I couldn't get past the red and white box on the right so I couldn't get to the last person to exit the house.

I can't seem to attack in the web version -- left click does nothing.

I was able to play it. When I got to the guy that swings his sword at me, I think I killed him. But nothing happened after that. I like the music tho. Congrats on submitting your game!

Could not play much of this game, it seems that web version is not working good! But good job anyways!

I hope you made the music by yourself.

It's pretty bad.

The proportion of things is fucked up, the art is jarring, the jumping is weird, the story is uninteresting and I can't attack.

Also, I felt at a bottomless pit just because I went left at the beginning.

The music is quite nice though, I hope it is yours, because it contrasts too much with the overall quality of the game.

I played the windows version.

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.
