An interesting game, but it doesn't feel very challenging or punishing. Not a bad thing, at least you have the EXP upgrade system to push the player.

Cute playing screen. Didn't really get why people were sometimes set free or said "aww". Appropriately awkward controls.

Cool idea, love the things that the people say but I wish it was a little more difficult. I do like that you added an upgrade system though.

Really simple, but a good idea and execution on the theme

Thought this was entertaining, although I think more progression would help draw me in to keep playing. Good Job

Nice cute graphics but the game is too easy

Nice idea, would be interested to see it with more polish. Fun brutal gameplay with interesting moral option of freeing people. It was a bit awkward that you had to press 'back' and go back to the menu to upgrade.

Fun concept. I did get the game to break when I went back to get some upgrades the number of points available just kept climbing.

Very Funny! Audio was fantastic. Screams startled my whole house! Great Music. I quickly learned to eat double fisted. Wasn't sure why people were freed sometimes when I didn't intend to do that. ALL MUST DIE! :) Fits the theme perfectly. Nice Job!!!

Funny concept
Love how you can grab back the 'free' ones.
Get's boring quick. Could benefit from a progressive dynamic.

The idea was solid, but I don't know, it just felt like nothing happened for too long :/

I like what's there, but was hoping there'd be more to it. Those sounds woke up my girlfriend :)

Simple idea but well executed. I just feel you could have made it a little more challenging.

Awesome job! The animation on the monster and being able to watch him grab the people individually was really impressive. Had a lot of fun with this one.

This is awesome. Nice concept. Well done. downloading and keeping the game for quick fun. Screams are a little loud. Can you please tone them down a bit.

Fun concept, with more polish I could see this molding into a fun game to kill time.

Funny graphics and control...

Well presented and fun game, but it lacks a sense of challenge and a goal. Upgrades are a cool. I liked the music, but overall the audio could have been balanced a little more.

Fun game, but just for a little time.

Great screams and idea, but I was hoping it would have more / increasing complexity.

Original gameplay. the game could be more fun with more diversity of action.

Sep 3, 2015 @ 6:40pm

I had to decrease the volume after I heard those people screaming. I don't want that my neighbors get a wrong idea what's happening in my apartment.

Anyway, nice concept and fun gameplay.

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.
