Nice looking game. You can't really win in this one? Or can you.. Moving around could be made with WSDA. :)

I got caught but it was worth it

This game looks really good for LD! It's a bit hard to control, especially trying to get to the fruit. Overall, though, this is a good, lighthearted take on the theme.

I cant say it was a super fun to play, the mouse movement was a little clunky to control, but great non-violent, non-typical use of the theme. Graphics were good, simple but clean.

Like the other people said movement could've been nicer

Cute ^^ made me laugh a few times and I think the (slightly) awkward controls actually improve the game. Got pretty tense in places.

Cool game, good art and controls, only negative thing for me is that the sound becomes too loud for my speakers.

I liked your game. Played it first muted, but then with sounds it may be easier.

Good graphics! But hard to play!

Bit glitchy. I will take one bite out of something and the human will get mad. :(

I reset a few times, but it kept doing it. Fun concept though!

Cute concept, but fairly buggy. I could start eating something on the bottom of the table, then click on the top and start eating something else at the same time. Or else click on the ham and then the bed, and have the ham magically eat itself while I would lie there, deflecting attention.

Still, I like the idea.

I liked the main idea! I don't think the controls work well but the main concept is great!

Nice game :D I didn't success in grabing the fruits, maybe it'll be better to use the arrows to walk. But it was fun :)

Very cute game! ^__^

good game! i liked graphics a lot. sound is kind strange, but gives a good feedback to the player. I think it would be more intuitive if you don't need to click at the same place to stop the action. Exemple, when you're eating you could just click at the floor, so the dog would stop it. overall, its great!

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.
