Like the graphics! And the idea of being the dragon, loving the princesses and flaming the heroes is great. Walking around is difficult however, and I did not understand the shooting mechanics...

Interesting idea, a bit odd but effective. The controls felt a little bit clunky. I liked the graphics, especially the lo-fi background texture.

Very nice game, enjoyed the graphics and the idea of the harem! Add some music and it will be awesome!

PS: A ,S ,W ,D control not good for all keyboard, use directional arrows instead ;-)

Well this is awkward. I got censored to death.

Strange but charming. Nice aesthetics. Collisions were weird at times, but overall it wasn't too distracting.

Good job

Funny thing!
The perspective of the princesses vs the perspective of the rest of the game is pure programmer art! ;)

Good take on the theme. Visuals are good, but the dragon is sometimes difficult to control. Overall, well done!

This is pretty nice and if you add in music and improved controls this game would work out well.

The graphics and idea are quite nice.
However controls are not too smooth. Also somehow I got some kind of Censored text and couldn't do anything anymore.
The first time I started the game (from the embedded player on this page) I got the graphics for the characters but everything else was just black. Worked on the second try. Not sure what caused this.
With abit of polish this game cut get pretty fun. All in all good entry.

It's a shame you didn't have time to iron out the bugs before submission but I like the graphics.

Fun little game and the art style was really charming. I wasn't too sure what the difference between the attacks were though. N and M for the attacks felt a bit off as well.

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.
