Welp, everybody go home. This is the best game ever.

But really, this little game is adorable. I had way too much fun crushing every single building. I just wish it was more than one level.

Really nice, the aesthetics work pretty well, and destroying buildings feels good. Nothing much else apart from that, but there's really no need for anything else.

I love how once you get the hat back, if you smash more buildings he still gets up set but then a second or two later is back to being super happy about having his hat. It's a charming game and the graphics a really nice.

Destruction is always fun. Theme is well picked. Good work.

The graphics were adoirible! Audio was nice. Managed a destruction-less run, only to break stuff when I sat down. Couldn't navigate the maze again to make it back to my original spot for a hat party without any chaos. Also, destroyed the entire city. Mwehehe. Way to go!

Oh my goodness, so hilarious! Really nice polish. It brightened my day, even though it took like 15 seconds to play.

Most adorable building ever! Would have been nice if there was more of a goal than just get the hat

It is the cutest building I've seen in my life.
Too bad there's only one level and no variations! Or real condition of failure / success (?).

Very cute!

Wonderful art. I really loved the sad crying face, so cute! This game made me want to have a Hat Party too. :b

I felt bad the moment I sat down the first time. I'm such a cute and adorable building monster that's responsible for millions in property damage...

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 ( 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.
