Great visuals! It took me a while to get the hang of the game. Quite hard.

A lot of good ideas in here. But this is really hard! Maybe if the angels were slower?

Neat idea, but the angels got too fast too soon and the demons shots were too slow/weak to be able to get very far into the simulation. (So I wasn't able to experience the full game.)

Cool Idea! I don't seem to be able to keep a rythem, it is tough, but I don't think that's a bad thing

I think the controls overall sour my experience. I would have loved to see it control more like a twin stick shooter, with e being used for interacting.

The idea of mixing a tower defense-like game with farming was really interesting, but it's a little too hard to play.

A little too hard, maybe the power of shots can be improved, and we can go faster maybe. But there's great graphiscs and a funny concept :D

Great idea for a small game. It looks very pretty! There's some balance issues. At first it's really hard, but if you get a couple of archers and understand it, it gets a bit too easy. Great job anyhow!

Both versions (Windows and Java) don't run over here... The window stays blinking.

Seems pretty hard to start with. And really confusing.

The task becomes impossible in the end, but I guess you can't avoid the wrath of the Heavens for too long when farming humans and all that.

Overall a very nice absurd multi-genre game.

Wasn't sure what I was doing at first, but it made sense after a bit. Interesting management gameplay, good art style, great job!

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.
