Super cute art, but the gameplay is very simplistic and not very innovative or challenging.

Surprisingly fun little game... I felt feelings as I ate cute plant creatures while they screamed. Good work!

Graphics and overall feel are killer. I love the "before sundown" component.

Just reminding you that you have to include a download for the source.
Also pressing Enter to start didn't work.

Awesome game! I liked the Graphics and sound effects. Well done.

Very nice game! Simple and slightly addictive. The first time I popped gave me a fright. Good work though!

Great game. I love the game over animation.

The monster didn't appear when I restarted after the first run. Had to reopen the game. Apart from that, very amusing!

I felt kinda sadistic every time the kids would scream and nothing to stop me from chomping on their helpless bodies.

The graphics are great. A music would have been a good addition. I like the sound when you eat something. Good submission!

The invisible timer is hard to see. I realize it's the sun setting, but the sun is so far off from the horizon, and the shadows blend in so well with the ground, it's hard to tell when the game is about to end.

I admit the game was a bit too simple for my taste. I would have liked some variety such as slowing down when your monster gets larger, and children running away. Adorable entry, though. The graphics are spot-on!

WHAT AN EXTREMELY CUTE GAME! Just love the art! But i didn't understand why do you explode that way, hahahah.

Congratulations, really pleasant!

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.
