I tried the web version. It works, but the window was bigger than my screen so a part was clipped off. I wasn't able to find any humans (it's very dark, I can't see far). When I click, the game seems to freeze for a second. It's weird. I enjoyed the pretty graphics, though!

GG nice it works well, the only thing I can see to change is vision range is so short it kind of felt like running around in the dark LOL. Just getting lucky running in to humans.

Had lots of problems running your game, I think you need some serious optimization on it. Took a really long time to download and once it got there it was barely playable, and i have an alright computer.
Couldn't really play it :(

Was really hard to find civilians, and footsteps sound is kinda annoying, better use 2 or 3 sounds for footsteps in this case.

I agree footseps are annoying. Still a cool little game, I liked the overall mood

Hard work on the models! I like hunting humans in the dark!
It would be better to have more varieties in game play!
And a map would be useful.

A fun little distraction. I agree about the low draw distance. The other thing that seemed weir to me was that there were fires spread out all around but they didn't help me see anything.

Great mood.

I thought it was too dark and the footsteps got annoying after a while. I loved the roar sound and controls. (It played well on a Mac)

Hmmm. I didn't see much done to the default fps controller in unity. Great work on the models. those were fantastic.

Impressive 3D graphics! It's very dark, though. I got lost and wasn't sure what to do.

Neat graphics, interesting game! I included it in part 30 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/aghqdpQgwgA

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.
