The camera position maybe has been a miss choice.

I think the game needed an indication to where the humans were because there wasn't enough time, it would be funnier if I had more time to hang around in the scenario. The scenario was very well made though. (:

This one is pretty fun :) It could have done with a bit more polish; most of the time is wasted looking for the remaining humans, so how far you make it is based on luck. I like the infection mechanic, it could be expanded into an interesting game.

Quite nice mechanic, but I would have changed the camera view. Nice destructible environment animations.

Nice work!
I got to wave 4 until i ran out of time. Maybe a bit too hard but still fun. Is there an end to the game or is there an infinite amount of waves?

Most of the humans seem to die of their own accord by running into things and I can run into humans without them dying. I think I'm missing something. Should I force them into obstacles?

Could have been more clear how to win and where humans are, but a cool start. The destructive scenery was very satisfying

Pretty sweet artwork and a very catchy tune! I especially like the way the monster is animated. Nice game overall!

It is a simple game mechanic yet effective.

+ I liked the destructible environments
+ I liked the music and sounds

- I think the camera needs to be further back to see more of the scene
- Give some indications of were the humans are (footsteps perhaps?)
- Sometimes you hit a human and it doesn't die and/or humans die on their own.

First thing I saw was a rogue lawnmower crashing in the road and then I ran around and I was so scary that people killed themselves trying to get away and I smashed fences and things. Hilarious. Not very long, but hilarious.

Not a bad concept, but needs some more work.

I wanted to play but I didn't see how big it was so I stopped downloading midway.

A nice entry, as others have said it is a bit difficult to tell where the humans are in the level and so there is quite a bit of aimless wandering. It's impressive that you've got a 3D environment with destructible scenery built in such a short space of time! There are some nice graphical touches such as the animations, it just needs a little more polish. Good work.

Cool entry, I loved the visual!
Maybe need some polish, on the main menu and the layout, but that's nice!

Nice graphics, would like to have a greater view though and there seems to be some bugs, dead humans move around and after a while the ability to infect stopped

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.
