The best game I've played so far! It gets incredibly hard on the second wave though. Damn cops, haha!

Gorgeous art, amazing music and a fun experience. Loved it!

That was really fun! Simple gameplay but pretty deep already. Couldn't really get over the second wave after having to respawn on a bunch of cops. The only move that didn't seem to make much sense to me was to just repeatedly bite without holding, which was a lot of fun but yeah unfortunately I couldn't find a way how to make that part of my strategy. Did it a lot anyway because GNANG! GNANG! GNANG!
Besides I always wanted to a little Vampire since I was small and even though I didn't realize it at the time obivously a nuclear power plant is the best place to do it!
Thank you for allowing me to get that off my bucket list, I'll save the link to this game for later and see whether I can make it past the second wave. (Damm you cops!)

- took a really long time to download and startup
- graphic style looks good
- controls feel good
- i got the first wave, but it's a bit repetitive
- needs more difficulty and more aggressive enemies

Incredible art. Very spooky and dark.

Incredibly good, the controls react as they should, it looks cool, it sounds cool, it plays cool.

The only thing is: we can't finish it.

As for a final post Ludum Dare game it's fine if it takes hours of practice to finish, but for testing you could really have had toned down the enemies a bit as you might read it from the comments, nobody made it through the second wave.

Anyways, the game is awesome, from the genre this one is best I've played so far. Keep up the good work!

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.
