Lighting and textures look awesome. It's just really hard to kill the enemies and I just found myself running into them spamming the spacebar. It was tricky killing the commanders. I never made it to Cubeler though. HEIL CUBELER!

Fun entry! It was a bit hard to see on my monitor but once you got used to it, it was no problem. Kudos from Germany tho. ;)

nice graphics, I especially like the raining effects.

I had some problems to see how close you can get to the enemies without them spotting you, might work with a marker for their filed of view, like in metal gear.

Cubeler is dead... yaaay!
I ran into a couple of bugs:
- you go through the 'breefing', then select main menu in the level... the 'breefing' plays back without text, and once in the level, the controls dont work
- the blue enemies come at you and get stuck on each other sometimes.
Also i felt that each level did not have clear exits, and Cubeler could have been more a more unique model... liked the audio!

Cool theme and graphics! :D

Good overall. Music helped the mood a lot, too. Fun infiltration game, although it was sometimes difficult to tell whether an enemy was going to spot me or not (disadvantage with having abstract shapes, I guess, field of view is less obvious). Other than that, great job!

Liked the mood, but I wish there would be some clearer indication of enemies field of view. Also transition between levels is a little bit confusing

Really great. It looked phenomenal, and I liked the premise. The killing was kind of fiddley though.
Please add some sound effects too.
But still, very good job.

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.
