Note: We produced all code and assets. The game's theme song is the only thing produced before the jam by JackLeHamster, so the Audio couldn't be judged for the Jam.

Sorry guys, this is placeholder for now. We will post the game soon.

Very nice entry, I like the graphics and the music. The camera rotation and orientation changes lost me, but the controls work well.
I'm not sure if it fits the theme, but it's a cool game, good job!

Wow it's so pretty! Love the colors and the music. Just wish there was some kind of follow-mouse controls.

Good, especially the camera movement! The only thing this needs is instructions.

Quite the cool graphics! Well done. I included it in part 5 of my Ludum Dare 33 Compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/UXRiA5Goh28

Some of the nicest graphics in Ludum Dare 33 for sure, looks lovely!

Nice game, but I didn't see any connection with the 1986 Sonic Youth album, which was a big disappointment.

I love this cute aesthetic. A good artwork. Maybe movements are a little bit weird, but it's a good entry. Thank you ++

a little bit dizzying, but nice game!

Beautiful game! The camera rotation was a little head-spinning, but otherwise, great little piece. I liked that it felt like it was getting easier as you gathered more "followers" then you threw in a new challenge with the shooters. Nice work! And great twist on the theme!

and there I thought I'd be killing him! Great game!

Aug 30, 2015 @ 5:35pm

Great mood, I liked the music, it suited the environment well along with the swirling camera and having the heart in the background was really cool. I found the ending a little confusing at first and didn't really suit the theme.

Really nice gfx! Well done

Sep 2, 2015 @ 4:34am

It's a cootie monster!

Amazing graphic style! The controls are little hard and maybe the beginning game are too hard. Overall thats great! game feel are good too

Nice job! I love the movement patterns of the little virus babies. The control scheme is nice too excet the way the camera rotates is extremely disorienting... which is fun but makes me lose track of my progress in the maze

The virus and environment are really pretty.

Very well worked game, especially how it all worked towards a common mood. The controls/camera got me a bit disoriented at times and made it hard to chase those friendly targets. I think a mouse/touch follow would have been really perfect.
I swam around picking up a following, testing to kill the baddies and so, but there wasn't any clear indicator of progress or goal or if I had actually understood it at all so I let it be after a while. I don't mean to say that there needs to be a 70% done-bar, but if the background, music, others clearly showed a progression... And showed me if death meant reset from beginning or just reset without the shield of your minions. But in all else, a very good game.

I loved the art of this game. The music is great too and even if you didn't make it, it's a good picking.

Took some time until I reached the ending (for a moment, I actually thought there wasn't) but I loved the audio and graphics.

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.
