One of the most innovative games I've seen in the jam so far. This idea really has legs! It reminds me of lemmings, which I've never seen anything like since. It gets a little dry after a while but for 48 hours this is a decent execution on a pretty sweet idea.

Can't go further then level2. Maybe because O'm playing from mac? Some ig-game feedback would be nice. Idea seems pretty solid thou. GJ

A nice twist to classic Lemmings.

At beginning I thought it was way too easy, but kept playing and levels got interesting.

Good job!

Pretty good, very Lemmings-y. A little simple, great music though.

Great idea! I like it. Could do with an explaination of the controls maybe? Need a menu for when you fail the level too!

Fun idea. The game is kinda meh with the theme, but the gameplay itself was very fun. Impressive for 72 hours. Feels like a full game.

Good stuff. I can see the possibility for a lot of different interresting levels!

Cool game. texture wise it was kinda eh, some were good some were not. As far as the game i thought it was a cool idea and the game was well done but it felt to long and slow paced. It also seemed like most of the levels were too easy.

Interesting game concept. Really enjoyed it. Very well done with the level progression i was very clear what each goblin did.

Such a clever game! I love situations like this where I am given some tools to solve a situation like this. Visually, it leaves something to be desired, but the gameplay and level design were fantastic.

This game makes sense ... in dancing goblin!

I put a little time to notice the green area where we can interact. (second level)

Very nice!

Awesome mechanics! Very clever indeed! The theme is ok though. Found pretty amazing that all goblins explodes after their task xp A bit slow paced but that's understandable. Sometimes I would just make a huge line of goblins waiting kkkk

Very fun game, I enjoyed this very much. It was interesting to play, the levels were somewhat repetitive but then it got more interesting.

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.
