absolutely adorable! the music and art direction were great. I played all of the way through to the end. the jumping mechanic is pretty unique, and I thought it worked pretty well. I just wish I didn't have to completely restart each time I died!

Neat. I don't understand why you impose a continuous jump which ruins the gameplay. It could be better as a simple platformer game. However, it's a cool entry. Thank you ++

I like the art style, i had some difficulties sometime to see what is dangerous and what is harmless, and the continuous jump is hard to control, but its a good entry

Cute game! Good job on the graphics and music. I wish the bounces were in sync with the music tho

I loved the music and graphics. The only thing I didn't like was that if I died, I had to start over from beginning.

I really liked the art. Fits well with the game. Good job.

Looks and sounds great, although sometimes it's hard to know what'll kill you until you walk into it. Would have been nice to have a game over screen, and to start closer to where you died.

The constant-jumping mechanic was interesting, makes the game more about timing than the usual platformer of hitting a button as you charge towards a thing. I liked it.

The art and music were great, but I found the game a bit hard. I died many times at level two only to be zapped back to the beginning of the game. But it was a nice little game.

Quite a simple game, but I really liked the sketched artwork. You should continue development after the jam!

Well done for the art style at this age :) definitely lovely!
i liked the music as well, relaxing, original and good to the ambiance.
It would have been nice to put some checkpoint as a little hit puts you back to the start.
Good job all :)

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.
