Oh my god this is the best thing ever. When the camera started pulling back in the first level, that was enough to get me excited. But the way you escalated it was brilliant and hilarious. Funny and impressive!

Totally unexpected. Love the second intro. Cowtamari!

Aug 25, 2015 @ 4:11am

This was loads of fun. I didn't know what to expect going in, but it was a really fun game.

I applauded at the end. Great game, I love the Katamari concept. Also, WTF!

I completed the game without shooting. I'm not sure you can on a MacBook Pro without a mouse.

You should continue developing it into a full game!

Really funny game, specialy because it remembers me Katamary. Absurdly funny, as I like it. Keep going, the worst thing about it is that it ends ;)

I love these types of games where you become a giant overpowered cow! :D

I really like the overall look, feel, and mood of this, but there were some control issues getting in the way.

It would be nice if the movement controls were a little less drastic. Unless you want to do full 90 degree turns, it's difficult to turn with any precision.

Also the "eat" control could be improved slightly. It seems that you have to left click on the cow to make him eat, but after clicking on him you can click anywhere on the screen and it works...until you move again, then to get "eat" to work again you have to click on the cow. After I figured that out I was ok, but at first it just seemed like it was randomly not working somethings.

One other picky thing...if you get up against a fence, sometimes the camera tries to look straight down and it sort of freaks out. You could fix that by limiting the max angle of the cam, for example to 85 or 90 degrees (with respect to the ground plane). That will keep your camera math from "getting all weird" <--highly technical math term. :)

Nice job though.

I like the idea but city level need soem work as it was difficult to move (to narrow)

Good idea and execution! Cool surprises when playing the game. I had the Twizzler for lunch! I tried shooting for a moment in the second level, but it seems unnecessary. Controls could feel a bit better.

That was awesome, haha. Things just kept escalating. Excellent jam accomplishment, great game! If I was to suggest one thing - difficulty. If I had to work for each stage, I would play it so much more just to see what happens next.

Aug 27, 2015 @ 9:10am

It gets really laggy in the city. Otherwise, a very funny take on the theme.

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.
