The text was very unclear and faded out. Also the game was over too quickly. But the sound and graphics were strangely atmospheric despite their simplicity.

Yea I'm not a programmer by a long shot. just an artist & made the "gameplay" in a few hours. Sounds like maybe a bug with the faded out text. Not sure what that's about. Thanks for playing at least! sorry you thought it was too simple.. I made the game just to make something before I went on vacation. Don't care about the competitive side of the jam. Just wanted to enjoy myself & have some fun.

Object of the game is quite funny, had a nice laugh out of that. Atmosphere was set pretty nicely :D

They are so cute talking to each other, and i really like that its so simple.
Faded out sentences here too, but not a big deal~

Really funny game, but I didn't get the waiting between clicking and conversation. It felt like nothing was happening instead of like the vampire was talking. Maybe display some speech bubbles?

You mean how it repeats what you choose for dialog? Yea I don't know how to change that... Or maybe I don't get what you mean but glad you found it funny.

Super short, but still fun. It was hard to advance the text after selecting an option.

You are right, it is similar to our game. Great art! I didn't get any sounds though. Also I didn't noticed the unclear fonts as others stated. Loved It. Good job!

Really great righting and graphics. I enjoyed the idea just wish there was a little more gameplay to it. Nice work.

Nice work, funny! Great artwork and animations. Little sexist but I imagine dracula would be...

Nice atmosphere! No problems with the text rendering at all.

A couple of issues: Took me a bit to understand that I had to -click- to get to the next line of text (I tried pressing every button on my keyboard instead...) - and I once ran into a bug where there was no option in a sub-menu, because I'd tried every option before, and then I had to quit the game.

I like the concept, but I was really hoping from the description that it was going to be more complex than "try every option in the dialogue tree until you win." ^_^;

Pretty funny game, kinda boring though. I did chuckle a bit but maybe add some more dynamic background and make the game a bit longer?

Cute little game, altho its possible to get stuck if you exhaust all the dialog options.

Lovely little game. Great art and a lot of fun. Made it in on second try :)

I really like the art! Took me a while to figure out the correct choices. I enjoyed the banter between the two characters.

Fun! but few.

Good game, but there is a bug in which the options selected when the game over screen is reached don't come back when you start a new game. Great, humorous dialogue though.

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.
