I'm afraid to say that this game completely crashed my browser forcing me to restart it :P It happened when it cut to a cut scene with the little girl looking frightened behind a box. Some lovely stylistic touches in what I saw though.

Also your text says WASD but I found that it used the cursor keys?

I confirm, instructions are wrong, not WASD to move but arrow keys. I'm not really sure of what I am supposed to do in this game. I keep loosing without knowing why. Quite hard to rate in this condition.

Thanks, fixed the instruction.

Strike: you have to prevent the figures from coming through the windows and get to you. A bit like the old Wak-a-rat kind of games.
Hexagor & Dianouille: which browsers and version do you use? Thank you.

Hey, didn't realize you did submit the game. It's a fun whack-a-mole-a-like, but it could've used a little more time to develop things.

(I get a "custom script failed" error on start up by the way. Game seems to run fine though)

Well it crashed my browser too. I played it two times and figured out what to do after.
It is a bit glitchy but i understood the gameplay a bit
Also if you don't skip the intro, automatically you can't skip it and it crashes. Hope this helps!

Sad that it crashed for me too - overall the art is amazing and the mood is great :)

Not sure if the game kept crashing or that there's no restart option if you die, but either way I never got that far. I loved the art though.

Art is really cool, a bit unclear what youre supposed to do though.

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.
