Had a great time with this one! Hope the requiring 2 controllers doesn't dissuade people from checking out.
Really unique, LOVED the presentation. Beautiful visuals.

Stunning artwork, looks interesting, but difficult to check out, because some people doesn't have more than 1 controller. :c

It's like mario, but better!
Check out this brand new game by Rubna, the boy genius behind classics such as Noodle Ramen and Lisa. The game feel is just soo.. THERE! It's almost like I can't believe you made it in just 48 hours!
And with the amazingly clever level design you put out there, this game will more than fill the gap on my desktop, that was once reserved a game called Boxfriends.

This just feels good to play, those controls are tight.
I couldn't really play it as intended as I'm sad panda with no friends.
Love the pixel art, controls and idea.
Would love to see a single play game where I have to beat ai enermies with the different masks.

Just, wow! Me and my bother had a GREAT time playing this! Even though it took us I while to get a hang of the mechanics.
Just the fact the we played several games of best of 5 is an indication that we had lots of fun!

I don't have critique at all for this game, other than the fact that there's only one level. Which you already know. A little more levels and I think this game would be ready for release! I'd at least buy it!

Hope you had a fun time making it and thanks for the great time you gave us =)

Absolutely brilliant!
Super fun! I'm a big fan of multiplayer game and I have tested with 3 players and it's just amazing after 2~3 tries (the time for learn the controls and the gameplay)
Maybe a little far from the initial theme (the masks are not essential) but it's not really important ^^
Fantastic works! One of my favorite :)

ZXC is bad on QWERTZ keyboards. It forces me to change my keyboards layout. Aside from that I like the look and sounds of your game.

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.
