Nice idea, looks like Transformice ! however I'm having a hard time trying to see which character I'm playing.

I didn't really feel the theme in it, but I still enjoyed it. A bit of transformice, but simplified and much nicer looking.
Getting an online game like this working in time for the compo is pretty impressive.

This was really interesting! Reminds a lot of transformice!
Game plays really well.
Creating a multiplayer game is not easy in a 72 jam, good job!

Love it. The idea, the art, the technical aspect... All fits together. I miss the monster part a bit, so only 4* for theme.

Incredible concept. Very well executed. I would love to see more of this. Audio would have been nice. 5/5 for fun and innovation.

We had a ton of fun playing this. It has so many layers and it works on all of them. From the bottom of my heart: well done!!!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 7:22pm

Nice one, reminded me of Tranfsormice.

Wow! really innovative and fun. Of course, I didn't realize what had happened the first time I became the master. It needs to be more obvious! Bit red background or something :) Anyway congrats, awesome idea and great execution.

Nice to see a multiplayer game. It is probably better with 5-8 players than 3-4. It could have a more bold marking when it is your turn to draw as I probably was one of those who didn't draw anything at all as I didn't yet had figured out to watch out for that.

Oh that's lots of fun. Definitely one of those "oh this is stupid, so I'm only gonna play it for THREE HOURS" games. Probably could've used some sound and maybe some goofy characters instead of little tic-tacs. Good work all around, though.

I really loved this one :) Couldn't play too much because of my crappy internet connection, but I bookmarked it for later. :P

Nice line drawing. Multiplayer is cool.

When I traced a path for a player and directed to a flag, I felt satisfied. If you continue to develop this, when I started, I wasn't sure what key to press to move and after a few repetitions of directing blue blocks to flags, I wasn't sure how to advance the difficulty.

I couldn't really try it because of the lack of other players, but it really sounds like a great concept! And the gameplay seems simple enough to offer a really good multiplayer experience :)

Good 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.
