Très bon jeu, je me suis amusé comme un petit fou, bon niveau monstre, le fat kevin c'est un petit monstre, c'est pas le méchant qu'on a tous connu au collège mais bon ^^ A quand la suite ?

J'ai adoré le jeu! Bravo, malgré le fait qu'il y ait encore quelques petits bugs, le gameplay est interessant, les graphismes que ce soit 2D ou 3D sont juste sublimes et l'histoire en elle même est vraiment géniale! Bravo @Sparklinlabs & les autres! :)

The graphics blew my mind. There's an awful lot to do and it all feels really complete, and well thought out! Could have really used some music or something though, and the combat got a little boring after a while.

I'm not too sure why everyone is out to get Kevin either. Must be something bad if the whole school sans 7 people want to punch him on sight. :P

Beautiful game though. I just wish that my laptop switched to Nvidia GFX to run it, as it was chugging a bit on the intel. but nooo, google chrome has to run on the slow pos >:(

Sound design is quite awful, make a team of ten next time :)
the game feel is not there too, playing is not really enjoyable. and one last thing, think gameplay before thinking about the fun of the game scenario, yes i was watching your live and it was a bit painful to. except that you've accomplished a lot in 3 days, good job anyway.
ps: the art in the story moments is lovely.
pps: you should have done a bit more different characters, all kids looks the same but there's maybe a point to that i don't know.

Very pretty, but confusing?

I did all that stuff... just to get expelled!? :O
I spent way too long in a chapter because I skipped the mission text... a quest log would be nice.
The monster cards are a nice idea but it would be cooler if they granted flashier abilities; just affecting stats is boring.
The 2D drawings are great. The 3D stuff looks nice and clean but... maybe the environments are too large so I became fatigued after a few minutes.

Awesome graphics! Looks like one of those 3DS Pokémon games.

Super jeu ! De beaux graphismes et une histoire chouette, avec un gameplay facile à prendre en main ! Il y a peut être trop de combattants à la fois pour des combats un peu redondants (maiiiis j'ai adoré défoncer les élèves devant la nana du secrétariat haha). Système de cartes très sympa, et nostalgique. Bref très cool :D

Art is great and there seems to be a lot of content, but it falls short on the other aspects.

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.
