I really was a monster... It's actually fun, and gory, of course!

The game is horrific, but fun. I love how the controls were explained.

BUT...

The unskippable tutorial text ruins the entire game. This should be a fast, high score attack game like flappy bird. It feels like it only wants you to play it once, no matter what the player feels.

Stuff like that makes me stop playing a game. :(

It's quite unfortunate on how i must rate this on how well made it is rather then my personal feelings XD But all jokes aside, the game is very well made and fits the theme very well.

Very fun game. Liked the idea - no bugs. Was a little difficult at first to tell if I was winning or not. :) But, was fun.

Good execution of a simple concept! Pretty fun and replayable.

LOL! I love how the tutorial completely contrasts with the mood of the actual gameplay. Gore-fest! Well done.

Horiffic. And Awesome. Definitely both :) Some part of me found this incredibly amusing. But beyond that, the game was very well made, great art, and nicely polished! Well done!

I. Am. A. Monster... because that was really fun. Skippable menu please. :D

This hits the theme perfectly in my book, but the gameplay is a bit lacking. As has already been mentioned, the fact that it takes almost as long to get through the tutorial as it does to play the game is disappointing.

Aside from that, though, this is a solid entry. I wish I got a different message when I scored 0, though... "What are you doing!? You didn't hug any of the animals!!" Something like that. :)

Simple but it's fun and works well!
I really wasn't expecting that. After going through the intro texts, the game changed all of a sudden and I was laughing.
I think the long intro is part of the experience, it sets a mood only to break it. And it's skippable for the next games. It's perfect :-)
Great job!

Well done! Not at all what I was expecting. Really good art, especially for a compo entry.

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.
