Great, I'm a shark now... It's really hard to code with these fins :/

The game is nice, however it is kinda short. After ten attempts I was a shark and won the game.

A little too easy and a little too ugly, but the characters was nice

oh wow that was short! I wish it would have been longer if only to keep listening to the music. Having some kind of ability progression associated with the different fish would be cool too!

Great use of the theme and great frantic music. Congrats on finishing. Good job!

Pretty simple game. Nice music! Had fun shaking the mouse to die a lot to make it into a music video experience.

Not bad, but I didn't like how enemies could spawn right under you and kill you that way. There should be an indicator of where they're going to appear, and for that matter there should be an indicator of when they're going to disappear on you.

Good song, but I'm guessing you didn't write it during the Jam or something 'cause you opted out of Audio.

Hmmm... Not much to say, really. A simple game that kept me entertained long enough to beat it, at least.

Some sort of countdown after losing before next game would be good.

Nice! Game play is addicting. I ate all the fish and lived forever in shame as an angler... great job!

Simple, but great! hehe

When I began, was thinking "Poor fish, well, Everybody Hates Fishy", until see what happens at end o.o

Nice job! :D

Short but charming! I included it in my video compilation series of Ludum Dare games, if you’d like to check them out :)

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.
