Great entry! Impressive artwork and solid gameplay—I led the mob on a lengthy chase before getting stuck in some trees and dying. Intriguing end screens.

gahahaahahh! That voiceover. This is killer. The mood is just right and its really fun to play. I wish the player had some abilites like a dash or shove or somthing to give you a little more mobility, but overall really awesome! Great game. :D

The first time I died so fast! Holy cow, those villagers swarm quickly! Good job making me nervous of the enemies. The music getting louder when people were closer helped. When I did make it through the night though...lol. Well done.

Cool graphics and feel. Almost wish there was some sort of mini-map like ability so I wouldn't suddenly be surrounded, hahaha.

I really liked the menu's hand-drawed styled graphics.

Woah that escalated quickly! Good fun, though it was a little bit annoying running through the forest into a dead end. Love the idea and good effort for 72 hours :)

A good entry, I like the atmosphere and the mood. It's a nice take on the theme.

Absolutely lovely graphics.

Oh my deity, this is soooo good. Even invisible walls that kill you if you follow the river didn't spoil it.
But I must ask, is there more than one ending (with dying being the second) of course) ?

Yup, there's more than one ending actually. As for the rest, yeah I'm afraid it still needs a bit of polish ^^

Good Music and mood!
The art was nice although i think the large amount of , i am assuming particles, on the torhces seemed to slow it down.

Good entry! Graphics are nice! I laughed when I heard "kill it with fire" for the first time

Audio is repetitive, everything else is super great! :D
Fantastic job!

Interesting approach to the theme! - monster misunderstood. Pretty polished game.
Really nice graphics - love your art style! (reminds me of "Don't Starve" - which is a good thing) :)

- good intro
- graphics look great
- music is good but loop is super short
- interesting take on the theme
- needs some abilities
- i tried following the river and ran into an invisible wall
- who is the real monster here?

Sep 2, 2015 @ 8:53pm

Nice entry! good and creative perception about the theme! Graphics remember me of 'Dont starve', hahaha
Congrats!

Wish I could do more than run around but I love the graphics and audio for this entry. Also fun fact: the first time I played this, I ran straight up - to the mob of angry villagers. It was ironically amusing.

Great graphics! I wish there was something more to do besides running...

Sep 8, 2015 @ 10:01pm

Really great music! Graphics were very nice too. Nice job :D

Fun game to play, nice audio and graphics. I like how there are multiple endings, actually i would like to see continuation of the story, did our protagonist find the cure, or what caused his "condition", next levels could involve more than running and hiding. I am getting ahead of myself, pretty nice and polished game especially for 72 hours, well done.

hahahah great idea. Pretty funny and cool concept! I've seen 3 different endings. Is there more? ^^ good entry!

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.
