I wanted to test it and give feedback, but I was stuck on the menu screen with nothing to do. Also your upload seems a bit wonky as you need to put the Monster_Run.exe outside its folder for it to work properly.

I fixed the download but for me and my friend it seems that the menu works did you try re downloading?

Not bad, but the game suffers from a lot of bugs (I could not take the objects sometimes and the jumps are not very easy to use). It's also very repetitive. Graphically it's ok, I find the character very nice :) Nice work

Maybe you should ZIP it into 1 file to make the download easier.

Basic runned, a good start, but needs some polish - more levels, more challange..
(and you link to google drive does not provide a download link directly, had to copy it to my own drive, which is a bit of a hassle)

ohmygodohmygod i love the art.

The game is really buggy, but still relatively fun. Good entry!

Can you provide a zip package ? Clicking on a folder browses it, and it is insane to download each file one by one and recreate the folder hierarchy. I tried to right click on the folder but it doesn't give me any option.

How come you guys managed to play this game ? I'd love to try it.

Thank you very much for providing a zip file. I was able to play your game. I like the art style. The main mechanic is all about jumping and I would have love to have more control over the jump, maybe a short press for a short jump, and a long press for a longer one. For some reason I had a lot of trouble to pass the first level. But once it was done nothing could stop me :D Good work.

Did the runner had to have plastic pants while recording that sound...

Yes.

Reminds me of cannabalt. I like the way you have limited health and barely visible traps that add a bit of challenge. Seems that hitting a trap occasionally made a man chase me which was cool.

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.
