Cool concept!
I think the minotaur was a bit slow and the range of attacks we're unclear. You could also set the background to black and use a little bit of lighting. It would add a lot to the mood.
Good job, cheers!

I was having so much fun trying to avoid the other enemies, trying to get out of the maze only to find out that I can't, I have to kill them. The combat needs some more polishing and it wasn't as enjoyable.
Great job nonetheless, had fun!

Very nice looking 3d-graphics! The character models are excellent. Decent level design. Pretty hard, but i managed to beat it. Attack animation is way to slow, and the hitboxes are kinda wonky.

The Windows download link gets you to the web version, and also the option menus doesn't seem to work in the web version.

Overall: Nice graphics, decent gameplay, a bit short.

I liked the concept. The attack is was so slow to point, I thought the game is supposed to played another way. I would be right next to an enemy and attack but it never died. Liked the music, fit the game perfectly.

Couldn't seem to hit the enemies consistently, the attack range/hit animations were unclear.

Minotaur model is very nice, shame the game is too zoomed out to see it :/ Enemies didn't react on being hit it felt unfair to die on contact with them.
No sound or music was playing, I was using the Web version, running Firefox.

I found it very difficult to actually hit anyone. By the time the animation had played, I was dead. I like the theme of the labyrinth though.

Very interesting- the music and animations are great! It's very difficult to do battle, but I like it.

The graphics looked good, but the attack were too slow and the player could get killed pretty easily.

I like the arts, all graphics and music are well done.

But gameplay is so hard, the attack animation was as slow that they kill me so easily.

Anyway was a good idea!

Very hard game! By the time the minotaur swung the enemy was already away, or I was dead. Nice music though

The game is hard, but you did a great job!
The only problem is the slow attack.

Couldn't kill even one enemy, but they killed me easily. Maybe I don't get something.

The character art is fantastic. I like the idea of the run around maze, but the attack is so slow I couldn't hit anyone.

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 ( 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.
