Beautiful game. Love the lighting system.

It seemed really hard to kill the good guys (without getting killed myself). They really need a health bar or something so I can see that my attacks are actually doing damage, since a lot of the time it seemed like I was just clicking and it wasn't really doing anything.

Graphics are good though. Could use more sound effects.

Such a pretty game!

I like the concept. There seemed to be problems with the controls not being very responsive, probably due to the grid system. Even so, the game was very easy.

Nice work, all-around

Looks lovely, could do with something in-game to help you out a bit though - was pretty confusing to play. Nice stuff though!

An awesome, simple little game that fits well with the theme. The sprites are great, lighting is cool and the animations and effects well done - though could use a little feedback on the sword attack, feels weird, unsure if you're connecting or not.

A good idea, would like to see it expanded on, could make a great game.

Thanks guys :)
Slashee the Cow, health bar of Hero (red stripe with skulls) is located at the bottom of screen, but really needs some damage indicator.

It never seemed to get harder, but other than that I really enjoyed it (:

Neat game, the pixel art and effects looked great.

I like the idea, but it's to easy and repetitive. I was just standing in one place, waiting until the hero comes so I can spam RMB and wait for the next hero

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.
