It seemed really hard to avoid getting hit, even with the shield. The enemies also seem to lob knives through walls and from offscreen. The theme is really cool though, and the chickens are adorable! Neat game overall c:

I really liked this! The idea of having all these little chicken minions and using them as an attack resource was really great. I also enjoyed the little story cards at the beginning, it was a nice touch. Great job!

Really nice work on graphics and music. The gameplay is working but it could use a little more polish to be really enjoyable.
I found it quite hard as everything is moving so fast. I didn't understand when I was hit or what was the cooldowns on my attacks.
The intro scene is really nice, and the overall mood is great. I think there's potential for a really fun game :-)
Great job guys!

I really enjoyed where this was headed, but it was a little too hard to make it very far in. Feels like there might be some important animations missing to really understand cleary what is happening. Sometimes I felt like I was doing well and then the game over screen would show up. Definitely a lot of potential though.

Really nice! Seems a bit hard to not die really quickly (and to kill the guys attacking you at range).

I like the story and the cutscene.
The gameplay is not that smooth. You don't have a lot of time to react and it's not obvious what attack is available. I'm guessing there's some kind of cooldown but I couldn't tell when a power was charged.

The lasers were like, BOOM and so was this game. Super fun! The intro story was very cool, and it set up the game nicely. I had trouble killing the green butcher guys, but I'm pretty sure it'd be easy with more time. Only issues were the graphics sometimes making the movements hard to see/understand, but honestly the attacks were amazing and it was a great game well done.

A bit hard to survive but the idea is awesome. Go Mechacorico!

Finally, a game that lets me live out my desires to be a chicken overlord. 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.
