Very nice game. I like the art and the music. Great job! Sadly, alone, it's a little boring!

I have an English/American keyboard so I had to be player 2 in versus mode to play properly. That's not a criticism of your game just a comment.

The game is pretty cool, I like the idea of it but the mechanics seem a bit shallow and repetitive in it's current state.

I now have a French version of .NET on my laptop, though, so that's pretty cool.

Nice game and good music, it seems to be a good game to play in 2 players.

Nicely put together! the art and sound were great. The gameplay was just a little stale.

I did have a serious problem with controls - they were mapped onto Z/S/Q/D, but the idea is pretty neat! Graphics and sound are pretty good, and the monster is pretty cute :)

OrangeeZ: Yes I know! I'm french and my keyboard is map with AZERTY and not QWERT(Y/Z) and I had forgotten this detail when designing...
Check out second version on itch.io for the WASD! (named QWERTY version)

Not sure what picking up the objects do
Nice job with the multiplayer, it really adds more to the game

A fun game with a simple idea, good work! A very solid entry.

Something wrong was with the controls, I could use only the ZQSD and it was confusing.

Togimaro says ...
Sep 6, 2015 @ 2:55pm

@demy use the QWERTY version!

Togimaro says ...
Sep 6, 2015 @ 3:01pm

I rename the "QWERTY version" in "WASD version", it's more explicit

Monster will have the most of fun at school! As game expansion I can suggest to modify the classroom level. Let all the children set at their desks and writing the test, and the monster's task would be to frighten the children to spoil their results, but staying unnoticed by the teacher.

Please, check the video of me playing and commenting: https://youtu.be/CEXUUzwEAa8

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.
