It cant be played, you need to include Data folder next to the executable to make it work.

Good idea however I think mouse controls may be easier to handle. In addittion, once you reach the castle the only way to get in is to lay an egg while attacking sideways, so you may want to improve collision a bit. Otherwise great job! ;D

Graphics are pretty good. The combat could be improved by adding more than 1 attack or something different to make it more fun to play.

Killed all the humans, but seems like there isn't a proper ending. Maybe I'm just supposed to enjoy my spider empire :P. The AI spiderlings were pretty much useless, which was bit of a shame. Got into the castle by approaching the seam in the middle, which automatically turned me 90 degrees, after which I could turn into the other direction to enter the castle.

Movement was quite slippery, but I guess that at least in the castle this could be somewhat realistic spider behavior. Combat was pretty boring though.

Well done! Fun to play! Really liked the spider sounds. Actually quite hard. I am still far from winning xD

Keep up the good work!

Controls felt a little swingy, but I'm impressed with how big of a level you built. Kind of wish there was a little more to do, or new attacks to get, or another type of human. The sounds were cool!

Looking promising! Congrats!

Great graphics (and the size of the level is impressive). Gets a bit boring just walking up to humans and pressing space a few times, and the controls are a bit hard (I found it hard to turn exactly where I wanted to) but overall good job!

Very good idea and graphics! However the controls were unprecise.

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.
