Well... this is very unfinished.

We had planned a whole bunch of features, we had a whole bunch of animations, level designs, etc. ready, but we just weren't able to actually place them in game.

Oh well. We'll post a full post-mortem soon, talking about what we had planned and what we did wrong (and also what we did right).

I got stumped a few levels in, but the concept is genius and I love how puzzles are worked in using very natural environmental ways! Music is also very catchy.

- Fixed the showstopping bug that prevented players from playing the second level when finishing the first one.

All other bugs and issues remain to comply with the rules.

OMG I'm in love with this game :D (I r8 8/8)
I wouldn't have imagined another music than this one, honestly. It isn't THAT innovative but the way it's realised makes it unique somehow.

I hardly find a connection with the theme but I really can't care less for once.
Btw, you should do something for the rabbit death (burnt and drowned wtf)
Ah, I almost forgot, I thought for a minute or so the game was bugged since I was assuming it was a keyboard only game for some reason : lack of menu / tips and I was bored to read instructions on the page (yeah, I'm a lazy gamer right ^^')
Graphics are simply beautiful, and ... this music makes me smile, it's lol xD

I can only say I love the gameplay (mixing platform with some kind of point & click, yay)
I've reached the 3rd stage so far and I can't go on :(
Please keep me informed, I want to play the next levels ! (this is worth money on Steam, I'm serious)

Lovely concept, I think it could make a great full game. My main suggestion for an improvement would be checkpoints.

Great job!

I was wondering why you put it as a mature game as I was playing... And then I unlocked the bull. Made me think of conker's bad fur day for the sudden switch from cute to gory :p
Ah man, lotsa great ideas there. Love how you went for a complete different style of game in the bull part.
Rabbit part played nicely and some nice puzzles there. Bull part was pretty buggy (couldnt jump half of the times) and really could have used some level design tweaks ( seemed like you really needed to know what was gonna happen to plan accordingly).

Amazing artwork. I didn't read the instructions on the site, so it might help to have the instructions on the main menu. Ill come back when i have more time to check out some of the later levels.

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.
