Can you zip up your windows download? Also, the web version doesn't work.

Sorry, web version was too big for Github, changing that now...

Way too many steps necessary to get to actual gameplay. (A login system especially seems excessive; I spent a few seconds just wondering what type of account it was trying to create and if I even cared to click the Create Account button, before doing so and finally seeing the explanation.)

Then after dying, I was punished by having to immediately go through nearly all the dialog again. After two deaths, I gave up trying.

All I can say about the gameplay experience itself was that it seemed like the fist/foot hitboxes were too small. I couldn't tell if I ever did any damage to the cherries, or if they died simply because they jumped on me. Never made any money, so I'm not sure what actions needed to be taken to get it.

Why do you have to register to play the game? The second screen during registration also looked a little broken (offset to the left?).

controls are a bit clunky but once one gets used to it, the game turns out to be pretty fun. There is a lot of content and I can see you had even more plans - for example the multiplayer. If you fixed the controls I would play some post-compo version.

Unnecessary login system, incredibly glitchy enemies, mediocre music but it does manage to pull of an original and fun piece of gameplay and story.

What a mix of graphics! The animations are good but the general style of the game is strange. The gameplay is a bit confusing. I think that the game have possibilities to be something bigger, but the game design has a lot of flaws. Try to improve it :-)

I really did not like the login system, made me skeptical as well. The gameplay was good though, and the artwork was pretty clean. Good luck on your future games.

Funny and fun gameplay. One of the more fun games I have played so far.

This is the multiplayer experience that I have been waiting for all of my life.

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.
