The game looks quite ncie and is very relaxing. It took my some time to make it past th anglerfish, so I wish you had created some save system (because when the anglerfish eats you, you have to start all over again).

Solid entry, good art and music. On the mana dot, there's no vfx feedback when get one, and the sfx is a bit late, so I'm never sure if I touched it or not, it's confusing. Good job

Very, very nice game. My only problem is the lack of contrast in the mana bar. I'm colorblind, so I thought at first the bar didn't work at all. But even for non colorblind people, this kind of UI element needs a much higher contrast. But other than that the game plays well, the mechanics are simple and efficient, and the graphics are really pretty. Nice job!

Cute and fun game with a neat interpretation of the theme. Solid enjoyable entry!

I loved the graphics and audio for the game. The atmosphere in the game was very serene, yet it also became intense while being chased by the angler fish. One of the minor things that I noticed was in the menu, every time I clicked on a button the music would restart. It would be nice if the music was continuous between the different menu options.
Great job!

Cute graphics, nice atmospheric music. I missed some kind of effect to show that I had touched a mana orb and gotten my mana back. Other than that the looks of the menu and the little darkness around the edges of the screen gave it a really nice polished look. Good job.

Pretty fun and interesting concept and I like the art style a lot. Would have loved to see some more levels.

I like the mood of this game, it all fits very well.
I was annoyed since there are no checkpoints and I had to start all over everytime :(

Apr 26, 2016 @ 12:39am

Nicely done!

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.
