Works well in mozilla firefox with no noticable issues as far as I could tell by playing. Great idea and nice graphics.

Nicely done, I enjoyed it. Good graphics, cool hiding mechanic.

Very innovative mechanic :)

Although you are a monster, you are not monstrous.

I felt the jump was a bit low. But I really liked the puzzles anyway. I didn't do terribly well, but I had fun playing badly :)

We wanted to reference you in our game but we ran out of time to implement the assets.

Worked okay in Edge.

Loved this little game! The shape-shifting was clever, reminded me of the old Tanooki-Suit Mario, and the dialogue with the player was engaging, too. I hope you expand on this one!

Wow this is awesome. Graphics are spot on, theme is perfect and it's pretty fun. I could easily see this expanding with more levels. Nice!

Nce entry ! Gameplay mechanism is cool and funny, storytelling was cool too. A bit short and easy... The ending was a bit sad, is there only one ?
I also had some bugs, when i hide and press an arrow key it seems i'm hidden but still can move :)
Great !

Good game, but the music started getting to me after a while.

The art was very cute, and I liked the hiding mechanic. I laughed a lot at "#scared". Sometimes I would weirdly warp past spots of the game, and I didn't really understand why. Overall, it was good, and it'd be cool to see this expanded.

I love your game ! Really cool concept and it was fun to play. Nice graphics and audio too. Sad ending... I thought I've lost so I tried again, then I understood that was the only ending. Poor Adam.

I really liked the humor in this game. Security guards singing Ace of Base while patrolling :D The graphics was well made. I wish that the game had been longer.

Nice!
Lovely graphics. I love the way he shapeshifts, especially the plant, that made me chuckle. It was pretty difficult to sneak past everyone, with some tweaking this could be a really fun game.
I love the megadrive style music too. great job!

The concept is original. The graphics are on point. The gameplay is simple. Polish this game. Thank me later :). Great great submission.

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.
